Magical Iceland Part II: Reykjavik

This post is the second and final installment of my Iceland blog posts. Check out what we did during the first four days of the trip in Part I: Snaefellsnes Peninsula and West Iceland. You can find details about why we chose the itinerary we did in that post as well. Day 4: Arriving in…

Magical Iceland Part I: Snaefellsnes Peninsula & West Iceland

Based on my experience, you’ve probably 1) been to Iceland already, or 2) have at least a handful (if not way more) friends who have traveled to Iceland. Many of you might even weary of hearing about how incredible Iceland is (like the dude in this snarky article about everyone in the world and their…

Croatia Guide Part III: The Southern Dalmatian Coast

This is continued from the following blog posts: Croatia Part I: Zagreb and Croatia Part II: The Istrian Peninsula Adventure From Motovun, our road trip continued for one more day where we drove the five hours to the Southern Dalmatian Coast jumping-off point, Split. On the way, we stopped for a quick lunch in the coastal town of…

Croatia Guide Part II: The Istrian Peninsula Adventure

Rijeka From Zagreb (See Croatia Part I) we headed west towards the Istrian Peninsula after a quick lunch stopover in the cute fishing town of Rijeka. At a random restaurant we happened upon near the river serving up some traditional Croatian sea fare, we encountered our first real language barrier of the trip. The no-nonsense…

Croatia Guide Part I: Zagreb

Several months ago I put together a Copenhagen guide with the best of intentions to round out the guide for Croatia which we went to immediately after Copenhagen. After I posted the Copenhagen guide, I found out I was pregnant and then ended up spending the summer trying to keep my meals down and napping…

Bike and Eat and Bike and Eat: What to do in Copenhagen

Somewhere during the honeymoon-planning process, a seed was planted to visit Copenhagen for a short visit before heading to Croatia. Maybe it was the Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episode on what was then the “best restaurant in the world,” NOMA. Or maybe it was the cheap flight from BWI through the new Icelandic budget airline WOW…

NYC Mini Moon

After our the wedding, we knew we had to get away. We decided not to go on our honeymoon until the Fall, so we decided on three post-nuptial nights in New York that we dubbed our “Mini Moon.” Baltimore is a mere 2 1/2-hour train ride from NYC, yet we never travel up there. It’s…

The Best Camp That Ever Was

When I was approaching nine years old, already camp-going friends regaled me with tales of a mystical place on a beautiful, secluded lake where the camp counselors had crazy names and were the most hilarious comedians that ever were. There was a “castle” haunted by a man named John Graves and days were spent swimming, and hiking,…

Life’s Latest Adventure

Someone asked me the other day how long Cory and I had been married. It feels like we only got married a couple weeks ago, but with a couple seconds of counting the months on my fingers, I realized it has been almost 5 months! Five months since we got hitched! Of course, we just…

My 2014 in Photos

I’m glad I decided to do this post because I realized how many photos I took in the last year. I haven’t done anything with most of them. A few of them are getting some new life now with my year in review. We both have fairly new cameras, so we’ve done a lot to…

Psychics and New Years Resolutions

Three years ago, just before moving to Baltimore, just before starting a new job, and just before my life made a complete 180, I sat down to write New Years Resolutions. I was just wrapping up five tumultuous years of living in Washington, DC. In that period of time, I had readjusted to life in…

I’m back…I think

Ignorance is bliss, right? A year and a half ago, I was whiling away in my ignorance on this blog writing whatever the hell I felt like. Now 15 months and 5 classes into an actual writing program, I’m afraid to go back to my old blog posts and I’m stuck in this apprehensive limbo, confidence…
