A Look Back at 2017 + Big Plans for 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Yes, I know we’re halfway through January already {gasp!} BUT it’s still the newest part of the New Year, right?? I’m gonna ride the New Year’s train a little longer because I really love all the reflection posts and articles that come out right around now– anyone with a blog or website […]

5 Ways to Enjoy Dublin like a Local

Guest Post written by: Kate Wilson Europe’s great cities seem to be on just about every travel list in the world, and with good reason. Broadly speaking they’re beautiful, historic, and packed with vibrant culture and modern attractions alike. Even so, most guides and lists gloss over the details and focus on major sightseeing opportunities, famous […]

Home is.

I’ve recently returned state-side after a year of traveling abroad… and I feel restless. Needy. Nostalgic. I realize that I haven’t written a blog post in 8 months (!!!) and that’s changing now. Like, right. now. I believe I stopped writing when our travels took us to Bosnia+ Herzegovina. It was a wickedly cold and […]

Make Love Not War

Today is January 11, 2017. Day 11 of my self-inflicted 31 days of posting in January. Today we attempted again to go to the candy cane cake building aka the National Library, but none of the doors were open. I pressed my face up against the windows and knocked as loud as I could, hoping […]

The Endless Cold

Today is January 10th, 2017 and I missed yesterday of my self-inflicted 31 posts in January. But don’t fear, not much happened in the realm of blog worthy events on January 9th. I walked down the hill to the little market and picked up some food for dinner. It was snowing and freezing cold, and […]

The Cold Makes You Feel Alive, In A Dying Sort Of Way

Today is January 8th, 2017, Day 8 of my self-inflicted 31 days of posting in January. Today, we ventured out into The Old Town… but not before 1pm. We slept in and needed it. Kind of crappy transportation can make you tired and sore, especially 9 hours of it. The heating in our apartment didn’t […]

The Long Road to Sarajevo

Today is January 7th 2017 (not really, it’s the morning of the 8th, but…) day 7 of my self-inflicted 31 days of posts in January. We left Zagreb by bus at 12:30 and mentally prepared for our 9 hour bus ride south through Croatia, south through most of Bosnia+Herzegovina. We were prepared with snacks, water, […]

Chapped Lips and Cold Hands

Today is January 6th, 2017. Day 5 & 6 of my self-inflicted 30 days of posting in January. Now, days 5 + 6 are combined because, honest to goodness!! I wasn’t able to log into my website yesterday. In fact, I was just getting the spinning beach ball of death.Weird. I know. Anyhow, that’s my […]

Day 4 in Zagreb, Croatia

Today is January 4th, 2017. Day 4 of my self-inflicted 31 days of posting in January. So remember how yesterday I said that we didn’t do much?.. Well, today beats yesterday by a landslide. We stayed in our cozy Airbnb almost all day and we didn’t go outside until after 5pm! P was working on […]

A Snow Day in the Balkans

Today is  January 3rd, 2017. Day 3 of my self-inflicted 31 days of posting in January. Today we slept in. It’s what I like to call A Snow Day in the Balkans. I didn’t even think about getting up before 10am, and even then I stayed in bed reading the news on my phone until […]
