Berlin for New Years – A Lesson in History and Fireworks

new year's in germany

*NOTE: Alright alright, hold back your pitchforks.  I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog, but between crappy wifi in New Zealand that allowed for 1 picture to be uploaded every half hour (if I was lucky), and spending most of my time trying to move back to the US, it just wasn’t going to happen folks. But the updates should (I stress the should…I do have Continue reading Berlin for New Years – A Lesson in History and Fireworks

Christmas in Prague – When Family Comes to Visit!

Christmas (2)

While Christmas 2014 on Boracay Island in the Philippines left quite a bit to be desired, this past holiday season was made significantly more enjoyable by my family meeting me in Europe! Just two days after my exciting excursion to Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, I hopped on an early morning bus from Munich to Prague. Getting started that early is never fun, but the sunrise that morning sure made up for Continue reading Christmas in Prague – When Family Comes to Visit!

What Does 365 Days of Travel Cost? Less Than $50/day.

travel cost

How much does a life of constant travel cost? It’s a fair question, as it’s a relatively curious and out of the box thing I’ve been doing over the past 18 months. If you’ve been following along with my ‘cost of travel’ posts over the last year and a half, you’ll know that I keep a pretty dang detailed record of how much I spend whilst traveling. Each month, I Continue reading What Does 365 Days of Travel Cost? Less Than $50/day.

Camel Trekking in the Sahara Desert of Morocco

CAMEL TREKKING IN THE SAHARA DESERT

So we’re going to take a quick break from Europe for a moment (since I’m wayyy far behind on those posts), because I’ve been DYING to tell you all about a recent tour to the Sahara Desert that I took with Camel Trekking in Morocco!  I went for the 3 day/2 night option, as I’d been told by many that it was just the right amount of days (2 days Continue reading Camel Trekking in the Sahara Desert of Morocco

Visiting Neuschwanstein Castle (Sleeping Beauty’s Castle)

Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle had been at the top of my Germany bucket list for quite some time, ever since I saw a photo of it somewhere in the depths of Instagram. When I found out that it was cheaper for me to fly from Barcelona to Munich, and then take a bus from Munich to Prague (to meet up with my family) than it was to fly directly from Barcelona to Continue reading Visiting Neuschwanstein Castle (Sleeping Beauty’s Castle)

The Cost of Travel – December 2015/January 2016 Roundup

THE COST OF TRAVEL

I’m obviously a bit late in getting this ‘cost of travel’ budget roundup out, and I apologize!  Things were a bit busy in the travel world during both those months, but now that I’m finally settled in once place for a while, I’m playing a bit of catch up. Look out for a post on the cost of 365 days of travel pretty soon! In the meantime, here’s what the cost Continue reading The Cost of Travel – December 2015/January 2016 Roundup

The Unique Architecture of Barcelona – Antoni Gaudi

UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE OF BARCELONA

I’d heard a lot about the unique architecture of Barcelona before traveling there from Sevilla, but to experience it in person is a whole different ball game. Unique architecture has become a favorite of mine since I started traveling.  The buildings of the world are so different, so elaborate, so unexpected, that you are often compelled to stop and take as many pictures as possible. Most of my favorite architectural Continue reading The Unique Architecture of Barcelona – Antoni Gaudi
