I won’t sugarcoat our entire trip and say it was all glamour & rainbows, because that would be a lie (and I typically prefer the truth). So to give it to you straight– Italy was a series of highs and lows in many ways mentally, physically and emotionally. We both got sick, had a series of … More Italy: Part I
We’re back! I know that’s no surprise to some of you, but I figured I’d make an official announcement. I don’t know where to begin on the last month and a half. Eventually I gave up trying to blog from my phone and spent that time enjoying the wonderful countries we were in instead. Time … More Let me catch you up…
Sorry for the delay in posting! A lot of the hostels we’re staying at don’t have strong enough wifi to upload pictures/nor do we have the time to sit & relax when there’s so much to see! Here are some photos from our time in Barcelona. Overall I liked the city, but it was sooo … More Country Catch-Up! Spain (Barcelona)
I can definitely see Lisbon being at the top of my “Favorite Cities” list at the end of this trip. It’s one of those places that you don’t hear a whole lot about, but there’s so many amazing sites to see. (It’s also relatively easy to get the hang of from a map, so that … More Mental Note: Come Back To Lisbon
One week in London doesn’t feel like enough! We’ve spent most of our days here walking, walking, walking & walking (my iPhone says we’re averaging 8+ miles per day!). My feet have the blisters to prove it, but it’s worth every step. From London Bridge to the Houses of Parliament, from galleries and cafes to … More London Calling
Let me start out by saying this: If you haven’t been to Iceland, CHANGE THAT as soon as possible! Our first day here, we arrived early in the morning (or the middle of the night MN time) and got to our hostel with zero hassle on a bus from the airport. We walked around the city … More I love Iceland.
Packing for this trip was no walk in the park. How do you fit two months of clothes into one backpack?? And with temperatures ranging from 50-80 degrees in the countries we’re going to, it was like trying to figure out some strange packing brain teaser. Here’s a few pictures of what I fit into the … More 2 Months Of Clothes: 1 Backpack
It’s been a FAST few days of packing, unpacking and saying a few “until next time”s. I’m officially out of my apartment and nearly have everything together to leave tomorrow. Waiting for it to sink in that this is actually happening. It still doesn’t feel real! I’m guessing it’ll hit sometime on the flight or shortly after we land. … More Tomorrow? Tomorrow. WE LEAVE TOMORROW!
With so many destinations we want to hit over the course of our trip, it’s hard to look ahead at each place individually to see what we want to do when we get there. A lot of days will just be winging it and asking around to see what’s out there, but it’s nice to have a … More Our Itinerary [Any Recommendations?]
It’s all the justification I need! (I say as I weep into my bank account.) This quote is also relevant as I move out of my apartment this week. I’m getting rid of so much crap I’ve never used, never needed, never worn, never looked at, have no use for, have three of, etc. Its making me … More Quote of the Day & Throwing Things Away
