Remnants of a Broken Traveler’s Heart

Moving back home from Paris was something I’d been so excited about for a while.. Seeing my family, hanging out with friends, late night Taco Bell.

My Newest Adventure

I think it’s about time I updated everyone on what my latest adventure is. Get this, it’s so huge.. I’ve moved into my own real life big apartment. That’s right, I no longer live in a shoebox.. I have an apartment with a balcony the size of my old room. It’s so nice to haveContinue reading “My Newest Adventure”

Dublin: A Last Stop On a Road of Yearlong Adventures

What does a broke American girl with 24 hours in Dublin do? Drink Guinness. Lots and lots of Guinness. I’m on my last stop of adventures here in Dublin before returning to the US after being gone a year and only had 24 hours here in this beer-drowned city.

An Abundance of Sheep

I’ve been in Wales one day. I think I should live here. I’ve never seen so much beautiful nature in my life.  I mean, mountainous hills and “TREES?!

Welcome to Wales

Good morning, Wales! My current backpacking trip has led me to the beautiful and green country of Wales. So far I can deduce that the number of sheep greatly outweighs the number of humans and the company is already impressively kind – and I’ve only been here less than an hour! This morning I gaveContinue reading “Welcome to Wales”

Grillstock – A Day of Serving Up Ice Cream in England

Alright so I cannot believe what I just spent my day doing. I woke up bright and early with Gem and then drove in to Bristol to work all day at a BBQ/music festival called Grillstock serving ice cream. And eating it.
