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
I had the great pleasure of spending a full week in Sevilla (or Seville if you Anglicize it) over the Thanksgiving holiday (my second year enjoying this festive event abroad). It is a beautiful city that, whenever I told anyone I was going to be visiting, they would go on about how much they loved it and that I would as well. And boy were they right. I fell in Continue reading Sevilla in Pictures: Colors and Architecture Galore
I promise I will get to working on the remaining posts I have planned, including Spain, Germany, Prague, as well as a budget round up not only for the month of December, but for the entire time I’ve been traveling as well. So get ready! But for now, I’ve thrown together a little ‘2015 in review’ video that sums up my travels for this past year. 2015 was the year Continue reading 2015 in Review: A Video
While the month of October was a pretty expensive month of living in London (which is a bit more indicative of the cost of travel in Western Europe anyway), the month of November was unbelievably cheap thanks to the wonders of housesitting, relatives, and moving on from the pound to the euro. ENGLAND (London) The first 13 days of November found me housesitting in a very lovely Borough of London Continue reading The Cost of Travel – November 2015 roundup

This sleepy little town in the middle of Spain quickly stole my heart with its beautiful architecture, picturesque castle, and a bit more of that Spanish feeling (at least to Continue reading 5 Reasons to Visit Segovia, Spain
As I’ve mentioned before, free walking tours are one of my favorite ways to see a new city! They’re generally about 3 hours long, tip based, you get to know the layout of the city and where all the big attractions are, and sometimes, you get some new friends out of the deal! Friends that remind you why you started traveling in the first place, and why those ‘5 minute Continue reading Madrid, Spain – When walking tours lead to new friends!
It has been quite some time since my last travel budget roundup! But now that I’ve been traveling for the better part of a month and a half, and a new month is officially upon us, I thought it was time to share it once again. This travel budget won’t encompass all of September, just from the 23rd of the month, which is when I arrived in London. I didn’t Continue reading The cost of travel – September/October 2015 budget roundup
