Today marks one year since my return to the U.S. after traveling for 54 weeks. As quickly as the year abroad flew by, it seems like this year at home post travel has flown even faster. I have utterly neglected my blog since my return, but I am hoping to invigorate it this year. I […]

When I set out on this adventure, it was never my intent to be gone for as long as I could, or “until the money ran out”. I knew that I wanted this trip would have an end date, but wasn’t ever exactly sure when that day would come. I wanted to travel until I […]
Ten months, in the books! In my tenth month, I found myself crisscrossing from central Europe to Eastern Europe and finally over to Western Europe! It was a busy month of visiting new countries and cities and exploring some amazing places. It was a bit hectic, but with the ease of getting about in Europe, […]
It is happening! I am locked into an Antarctica cruise leaving from Ushuaia, Argentina! Oh, did I mention I leave 2 days after touching down in Argentina?! It has all happened very quickly… My decision to fly to Argentina was in part because of the possibility of catching a last minute deal to Antarctica, but […]
A cold and rainy day in Prague was the perfect excuse to take a break from being a tourist and do some much needed traveling planning. The last 2.5 months of exploring Europe have been incredible, but I recently noticed that I am getting antsy. The off season here in Europe has been a welcome […]
Nine months, three quarters of a year, nearly 300 days have passed since I left the United States hungry to see the world. It still doesn’t seem possible that nine months have come and gone already. This time last year, I was still working the 9-5 while feverishly planning the minute aspects of this trip. […]
Croatia is a country that has quietly crept up in the world over the last 10 years. After enduring a grueling war which granted them independence in 1991, the Croatian people worked very hard to repair their country. As word began to spread that there was a country that had gorgeous coastlines on the Adriatic […]
In life, I have found that the most unexpected things are the ones that can make me so happy. How many times have you been driving to work or up early shuttling the kids to soccer when you look up and see a hot air balloon floating in the glow of a new sunrise? I […]
Month eight was one full of changes. I finally found my way out of Asia after 5 months and moved into a new continent. I was excited to explore a new part of the world and have a change of scenery. I was able to go on many adventures throughout the month and got my […]
After trekking steadily for the first four days, I knew it would start getting tougher as we continued to gain elevation. Over the next four days, we were set to gain nearly 5,000 feet (1,500m) of elevation across 17 miles (27.5km) en route to EBC. As we continued to get closer, I was a mix […]
