  • My ADVENTURES

    A brief list of my adventures...more on my blog!

    United States

    Obviously

    Being raised in the US, I of course have traveled to the majority of the East Coast and have been to at least 15 states thus far.

    Germany

    Beer, Pork, and Clouds

    A country full of beer, pork, and cloudy days. That's the best way to describe Germany. I spent two years of my life here and you will be able to learn more about navigating the trains and visiting this country as my blog evolves!

    Switzerland

    Breathtaking

    One of my favourites..the Alps are just breathtaking! i have had the oppurtunity to camp, ski, and hike here and I will say every time makes me want to return.

    The Netherlands

    Chill

    With Amsterdam as the centrepiece of this country, it is super relaxing. Much of my travels there have been to this magical city, and those visits will not be forgotten.

    Iceland

    My Favourite

    My hand's down favourite place I have been. Iceland was just WOW! It had a small town feel and was stunning.

    Finland

    Fun

    Although I did not spend a lot of time in Helsinki, I did get the oppurtunity to stay in the glass igloos you may have seen on Facebook. It was a fun time--especially the dog sled ride.

    Austria

    Lovely

    Austria was just like Switzerland but lovelier in a way. It had great skiing slopes and the towns were alluring.

    Romania

    Cheap

    Romania had wonderful architecture and was just dirt cheap! A thirty minute taxi ride was only $30!

    Czech Republic

    Best architecture

    To me the Prague had the best architecture. It did not have the best ghost tours though.

    France

    Touristy

    Paris, the main city I went to, was very touristy. I was awesome to see the Eiffel Tower but very touristy.

    Italy

    Crazy Driving

    Italians do not follow the rules of the road at all! However, their pizza and pasta is on point!

    Greece

    Just wow

    I loved Greece. One of the best times of my life. The culture, the beauty, everything about it was just fabulous!

    Bulgaria

    Hot

    I went in May and let me just tell you it was hot! It was an ok place, but not the most exciting.

    Macedonia

    Festivities

    At night that is when the fun happens. As walking around during summer, you can always find something going on. It was a great weekend.

    Sweden

    Dollhouse

    Sweden was nice but it reminded me too much of a dollhouse. It was all too structured. Pretty though.

    Russia

    Too young

    I was very little for this one, but I do hope to go back and will include a blog post about it and some photos of what it looked like back in the 1990s.

    Norway

    One simple night

    I spent only a night in Norway, but from what I saw it seemed decent.

    Hungary

    Top 5

    Budapest is in my Top 5. I absolutely loved it there. The architecture and the experience I had there will be ones I always remember.

    Islands of the Caribbean

    A family adventure

    As a teenager, I went to some islands with my family and it was a good time. We snorkelled and swam with stingrays.

    United Kingdom

    Expensive

    The UK is pricey! If you go there expect to spend some money! It was worth it though.

    Slovakia

    Eastern European

    This was one of the first eastern European countries I visited and I loved it. The way it looked was just so historic. That is when I fell in love with the eastern half of Europe.

    ...and more to come!

    I won't stop here!!

    Future travels include Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and so many more. Sign up for my newsletter and stay up to date with me on Facebook, Instagram and my blog to watch my adventures play out!
