Well here’s a pleasant pivot from my last post. My boyfriend Sam and I have happy news (usually this statement is followed by an engagement announcement or pregnancy reveal — not yet world, not yet).

We had prepared ourselves for the unpreventable blow to our wallets due … More Welcome to Oslo, Norway: the most expensive city in Europe
On our second night in Amsterdam, we wanted to have a little fun. We tried to rally a few of the other hostel guests to come into the city with us but only managed to convince our one new buddy, Corbin. We planned to go to a bar or club in the city and pass … More Amsterdam Part 2 – Red Light District, flea markets and new friends
