home and a lot of looking back.

Having been home for two weeks now after being on the road for so long is weird and at moments I’m a fan and at others I long to escape back to the surreal adventure I was on. The train ride from Kaiserslautern to Paris was perhaps the most shocking. Rolling out of the station…

#ctf and sangria in portugal.

Most of the cities I chose to visit on this trip held something specific I was interested in seeing, Lisbon on the other hand attracted my attention for a different and even unknown reason. I’ve never really has a specific reason for wanting to visit Lisbon but it has always been something I have been…

when spain finally hit me.

I feel like the best way to describe my Madrid experience is hot, lost and delicious. A good portion of my adventures and discoveries occurred because I was lost or was just plain not planning what I was going to do. I have very mixed feelings about Madrid because it is a huge city just…

barc n’ blake.

Kylie’s famous saying: Blake n’ Barc set my expectations for my first excursion into Spain rather high, and I can confirm I was not disappointed. It was super impressive from the first moments right up until the last. Most notably was the architecture after some of the most famous architects of all time were active…

nice was fun n’ nice.

Thus far I’ve been nothing but enjoying being off on my own discovering everything that the world has to offer, from one corner of Europe to the next. In the whirlwind of travel I’ve found that it’s easy to not get homesick. why bother bringing your mood down when there is so much to see…

a roman oasis.

I learned pretty quickly after stepping off the airplane in Rome that the four days I had allotted to explore the city was not going to be enough. Honestly I feel like I could have spent 2 weeks in Rome and I would have still been finding things to see. However, I’m glad I did…

being lazy is a-ok + a homie.

I love travelling, I love seeing new things, I love meeting new people and I love having new experiences, but even those open to embracing all of these things can hit a wall and I’m surprised it didn’t hit me sooner. Travelling is exhausting you’re walking all day, seeing the world for the first time,…

moments.

I’ve been go go go for the past few days and it’s amazing to get a lot of stuff done and tick things off my list of stuff I want to discover, however, it has also been exhausting. I’ve hit a wall where I’ve seen so many things and done so many things that now…

family & a plot twist.

Another afternoon in another flixbus. S/o to Mika for introducing me to this blessed company and saving my wallet from its imminent death. I spent this past week with some family I hadn’t seen since the one and only time I was in Bremen – in fact I had never even met a handful of…

museums, a park and Foxing

  On stop number two of my touristy travels I found myself in Amsterdam, possibly one of my favourite cities of all time – watch out this is a long one. I don’t want to say that I like it better than Paris because the two cities are very different and incomparable. The people are…

welcome to the lonely life – it’s better than expected.

The Gnoming begins: I apologize in advance for the horrendous typeface. Look @ me being a gnome and all confused about how I somehow ended up on top of the Kölner Dom????   Although I have been traveling for around for over two months previous to arriving in Köln there was only one other brief…

reunited.

April second two very cool Kaiserslautern locals set out on a treacherous car journey to Pairs to be reunited with a Canadian girl they hadn’t seen face to face in almost a year. Treacherous might be an exaggeration, but it did result in a lot of excitement. If I’m gonna be totally honest there was…
