I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but I’m not a huge fan of France. Visiting Paris almost 5 years ago proved to be a necessary but not completely positive experience due to the people I encountered. Any time I asked for help, I’d receive an eye roll and just enough information to get […]
Hi there! As a sort of continuation from my previous post about our trip to Mallorca, Spain, I didn’t include everything. I left out the most harrowing drive I’ve ever done in my life. No one mentions the danger and sheer terror of driving the serpentine trail through the Serra de Tramuntana mountains on your way to […]

I had no idea how to plan for expenses during my 3-month backpacking trip through Europe a few years ago. I had worked a seasonal job in Alaska and the better part of a year serving coffee in order to save for it and didn’t want it to go to waste. Here are a few […]
Switzerland is hands-down the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. I was lucky enough to hear about the little hamlet of Lauterbrunnen, a short drive/train ride from Interlaken in the center of Switzerland, and had to investigate for myself.
