*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
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)
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
The fact that every time someone says the name of this town and I immediately think of ‘Genovia’ from the classic Disney movie The Princess Diaries isn’t the only reason I decided to visit Segovia (though I do think it’s a good enough reason). 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!
