The truth is, not everyone gets to travel those months. People visit Europe during off-peak times for many reasons…e.g. job, school, family situation, etc. I’ve […]

I wrote a blog that will piss some people off, but honesty is the best policy when it comes to travel advice. I’ve listed cities that, if I won a free trip to, I would probably still visit while hiding my disdain. I live in Europe and love it here, so I would literally travel […]

Unbelievable, unexpected, seemingly unreal…these are the words I use to describe my current situation. I got ‘the call’ a few weeks ago. I work for an organization that can move your life with a single phone call, and not all moves are great. The last time I got ‘the call’ was in 2008, when I […]
