Not every travel moment is picture perfect. (sometimes the self-timer beats you)   I've been avoiding getting into another TV series these past few months. I didn’t want to fall into a trap and binge watch another Netflix-produced masterpiece that would have me neglecting to interact with other human beings for days. The other night,...

Adventures in Chicago

I must admit, I didn't take many pictures while in Chicago. I was deeply enjoying my time spent with two of my favorite people who had recently moved to the windy city, and I didn't think to get out my camera very often. It was an awesome weekend. The weather was sunny and hot and... Continue Reading →

Being from Minnesota, the most un-desertlike place, we were so excited to experience firsthand the massive sand dunes of the largest desert in the world - The Sahara! It's... Continue Reading →

Munich Summer & Oktoberfest Accommodation | Review of THE TENT

I'll admit, I wasn't thrilled about having to stay in Munich for two nights during my July Europe trip. I'd been to the city before for the incredible Christmas markets and while it is a completely different experience in the summertime, it's also significantly more expensive. Germany is also a pretty expensive country, especially in comparison... Continue Reading →

One Night Stop in Mostar | Bosnia & Herzegovina

Known for its iconic bridge and for being a great day trip to take from Sarajevo, Mostar is a fascinating city full of history and interesting things to see. It's very walkable, in fact, a lot of the ancient part is pedestrian only, and everything is close together. Sarajevo -> Mostar Transport One thing that... Continue Reading →
