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
Alright, alright, alright. I have to update you very very quickly on turkey.

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.

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. Do you … Continue reading Travel Update – December 4th

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.
