From the Diary: Scotland

June 20, 2012     5:00 pm     Stirling, Scotland I think everyone in my flat has gone to sleep. It’s rather comical that we all were able to go about three days without completely passing out. I slept from about 1:30 pm – 4. Great nap.  The past three days have actually been …

From the Diary: Scotland

I’ve recently gone through my diary (the written, gut wrenching, shaming diary) that I’ve kept over the last five years. I take it on pretty much every big trip I go on and detail some of the events. While I was in Scotland studying abroad in 2012, I had the diary with me. Stories of …

Big Group Travel vs Small Group Travel

Some prefer to travel with family while other still prefer to travel only with friends. But what do we do when the question is how many people to travel with? Big group travel …

It’s my last Sunday in Berlin. If the people were mean, the clouds constantly poured, and the sights were underwhelming then I would hate it here. The people have been more than kind to me.

5 Places I Long to Visit Again

People are always asking me, “Which place has been your favorite?” But I have no way to answer that!! Every place is my favorite for different reasons. Of course, I do have places that I want to go to again (and again and again)! That’s usually the list I try to give people. Mrs Ayla’s …

The Travel Item I Haven’t Talked About Yet

My LL Bean book bag was one of the greatest investments ever. I remember when Mama bought me that book bag the summer before my senior year of high school presently six years ago. I didn’t even want the thing! At the time, I had used the same pink backpack for about five years. The …

Sports Bucket List

So I found this great article by USA Today on the 10 Best Bucket List for Sporting Events. I was just talking with a friend the other day about the different sporting events I want to go to in my life. Some of the events on that list I’m not crazy about doing while others mean …
