My strange adventures in Barcelona

Morning came on June 23 telling us to pack up camp and head across Spain towards Barcelona. The Spanish countryside is absolutely breathtaking. Quaint, red-roofed houses are scattered across the hills and the view kept my eyes occupied for hours. We stopped for lunch in Zaragoza, Spain, the fifth largest city in the country. The…

Paris to Pamplona, highlights and thoughts

We left Paris and spent the day on the road, headed to Bordeaux. The bus ride was long and draining, but we stopped at a few service areas along the way to get food and stretch our legs. We arrived to Bordeaux around dinnertime. The campsite was an in adorable, quaint town comprised of small…

Why Paris will never forget me and vise versa

This post is a continuation of my last one. Here, I am going to explain why I had possibly the worst day ever in the most beautiful city ever: thanks, food poisoning. Thursday morning, we rose early once again to head to Versailles. I wish I could have enjoyed the palace more, but I was…

How my Contiki tour has been so far!

Woo. This has been an adventure so far. Unfortunately, the wifi on this Contiki tour has been limited, so I will not be able to post everything until it’s done, but for now, I will post whenever I get a chance. I’m exhausted. I’m four days into the tour and want nothing more than a…

My second day in Dublin

The next morning, we rose to eat breakfast at the hostel and make our way into town to find a place to get authentic Irish coffee. We of course landed back at Temple Bar, where our lovely bartender painstakingly whipped up the most amazing cups of Irish Coffee we’d ever had. Then we made our…

Dublin will always have a special place in my heart

Mysterious. Edgy. Alluring. Captivating. Full of history. And somehow charming. These are the words I have to describe Dublin. I haven’t felt this in love with a city since Sevilla, yet comparing the two would be ludicrous. I’ll start from the beginning. When our ferry dropped us off at the Port, we caught a cab…

Three unforgettable people I met on the way to Dublin

The best part of travel is the people you meet while doing it. Sarah and I met three people on our way from London to Dublin that I think deserve to have a spot in this blog. Sarah and I woke up early Friday morning to take a train to the port, then take a…

Living the royal life in London

Okay, so that title isn’t really true. I didn’t get a chance to live the royal life today, but I did get a glimpse at it! This morning, Sarah and I went to Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guards. We got there 15 minutes before the ceremony started, which apparently is not…
