Yes, it has. It’s been one whole year (plus a few days- 10 to be exact) since we got back from our Eurotrip. One. Freaking. Year!! And, I’ll admit, even longer since I’ve posted on my blog… But I want to get back into the writing/blogging game again so here goes nothing. I figure the best … More Has It Really Been A Year Already?
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
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
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.
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
Traveling is an all-encompassing activity. It’s overwhelming, sometimes nerve-wracking, but full of experiences that would be hard to come across by staying at home. That’s part of what makes it worth it; the newness of it all. If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion, and avoid the people, you might better … More The 5 Senses of Travel
When I say, “price for a flight to Europe,” what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Probably something along the lines of “Expensive!” “$$$” “Bank-breaker!” Well what if I told you you were wrong? Here’s the low-down: my direct, one-way flight to Iceland cost $330. Now’s where some of you might say, “Oh, so you got to … More How I Got A Flight To Europe For Less Than $500
I have a confession to make… I am a serial over-packer. Take this suitcase and backpack below for instance. The purple suitcase on the bottom (nicknamed “The Purple Monster”) is what I took to Canada last week for a 5-day trip. I repeat, a 5-day trip. Oh, the backpack on top you ask? That’s what … More Confessions of an Over-Packer
My Eurail pass finally got delivered– yay! Any tips on using it abroad? I’ve heard mixed reviews on whether they’re worth the money, but I think our “15 trips over two months” pass is the best bet for our travels and where we’re planning on going. (And with more space, prettier views and typically fewer stops, … More Eurail pass has arrived!
