I'm actually not sure if it's long awaited or not, but I do know it's been a long time coming. I write to you in september, almost 4 months post trip. What kind of person gives that long of an anticipation. I know, folks, it's been hard. You've been on the edge of your seat. … Continue reading The Long Awaited Update
I am writing this post so I can link a ton of photos in one place without messing around with dropbox and google drive. Professor Cullen, this is for you. I tried my hand at astrophotography. Yep. That's right, astrophotography. I'm introducing some big words into this blog. You better watch out! I decided to … Continue reading Astrophotography: Trials and Tribulations
I am quite possibly the worst blogger in all of history. I think I'll put that on a tee shirt. Better yet, I hope my future kids give me one of those ridiculous mugs with "#1 Worst Blogger in History" on it. It'll just be so fitting. But anyway. Here I am. Albeit, a little … Continue reading Wow, I suck.
Alright, alright, alright. I have to update you very very quickly on turkey. (I only say quickly because I'm finally moving all of my euro photos to a hard drive and have to get this shit posted before then.) David and I arrived in Turkey on a night train from Sofia, Bulgaria. On that night … Continue reading Istanbul – A Supermassive Game of Frogger
I'm going to try and make this really short and bullet listed so you're all caught up and I can move on to current events. Ready? Ready. Forwarning, the format will be "In (insert city/country/place), I (insert reckless behaviors/activities I participated in). In Warsaw, I was fined 30 euro by polish metro police for not … Continue reading Okay. Massive Update, yet again.

TWO IN ONE DAY??? WHAT? What even is this craziness? That's right. I'm on the ball. I write this from my uncle's kitchen table in Annaberg-Buchholz, an itty bitty German town 15 minutes from the Czech border. The last we talked, I was on my way here. Or rather, trying to find my way to … Continue reading Travel Update – December 5th!
Prague. I am trying, so very hard, to update you on all these cities before I leave them, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. Sorry about that. But anyway.. Prague. I was in Berlin, as you probably know. I was biding my time, wandering across the city. The usual. On Thursday night though, Tabea texted … Continue reading Travel Update – December 5th!
Jesus, it's been quite a while hasn't it. Last time we talked, I was in Barcelona, curiously introspective, oddly nostalgic, fairly off balance. Today, I'm updating you from a tiny town on the border of the Czech Republic (But that's a long story, and I'm skipping ahead.). I will tell you about Berlin.
