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, taking drugs from strangers. The usual. On Thursday… 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. Do you… Continue reading Travel Update – December 4th
It's my birthday today so I'm commemorating the moment with an introspective post. It's the "The 20 Things I've Learned in 20 years" post. You ready? Don't worry so much. Life does not get any easier by you worrying. Stop worrying. It's not worth it. Call your mother often. She knows much more than you do.… Continue reading The Roaring 20’s – The 20 Things I’ve Learned in 20 years
I'm writing this in Barcelona. One of my favorite cities in the world. I'm really getting better at this blogging thing, and I hope you're proud of me for it. I know I am. Today, I am a little unsure why I am writing. Maybe to kill time before I force myself to get some… Continue reading How I Grew Milestones in Minutes (or Maybe Just a Few Days)
Well. I left Seville. And went to Madrid (yet again). But you already know that from the last one. So let's talk about Madrid. The last time we talked about Madrid, I gave you a very rough impression of it. Sure it's gorgeous, but there's not a ton to do. That was about the gist,… Continue reading Travel Update! – November 18th
Hey hey hey. I am doing really well with this blogging thing. You should be proud. Last I talked to you, I was in Lisbon, headed on a bus to Sevilla, unsure of the my next move from there. I got to Sevilla early Saturday morning. Wandering the cold streets of southern spain, I was… Continue reading Travel Update! – November 16th
I was recently walking through the streets of Lisbon with Tabea when I was posed with the question "Why the hell are you so fiercely independent?" Taken back a bit, I asked what she meant by it. "It seems," she explained, "that you're so convinced that independence is the best way to live your life.… Continue reading A Word on Fierce Independence
Alright. Guess who is on the ball today. I am currently in Lisbon, updating you on Lisbon. Aren't you proud? You should be. I'm awfully impressed with myself honestly. I sit in my hostel lobby, shouldered by two other furiously typing travelers. The mood is light, the couch is comfy, the receptionists are smiley, and… Continue reading Travel Update! – November 10th
I'm not going to even pretend like I wrote this a week ago. I didn't. Today I'm sitting in my hostel in Lisbon, avoiding the seemingly meaningless responsibilities of my one university course. I sit here, halfway through the morning, on the cusp of yet another travel decision, to yet another place, to yet another… Continue reading Travel Update! – November 9th
