Throwback Thursday: Orlando

Today is the first day in the history of me working my Annual Meeting that I didn’t have a late night. I’m celebrating by writing this blog about the time I left for the meeting a week early and Sean and I went on our “Dushanbe Moon” trip to Orlando to act like children before […]

Throwback Thursday: Venice

Well, here we are. The final installment of the Europe 2012 trip. After our tumultuous time in Tuscany, we were quite ready to ditch any form of vehicular transportation for a relaxing last few days in Venice. I was excited, albeit a bit terrified, about staying in a floating city, but I was looking forward […]

Throwback Thursday: Tuscany

Alright, friends. It’s time. It’s time to finally share the infamous “Vespa Incident” with the world. But first, let’s explore how we got to me crashing a Vespa (twice) on a busy street in a teeny-tiny town in Tuscany in front of an Italian nun, a police officer, and a biker gang. After two-and-a-half weeks […]

Throwback Thursday: The Vatican

Before I dive into all my issues with The Vatican, let me preface this with the following: I am a confirmed Catholic, but not at all religious. I don’t have a problem with religion, except when people start wars, are prejudiced/bigoted because of it, or simply tell me how to live my own life according […]

Throwback Thursday: Rome

Ah Rome. I love it so. After spending a few weeks in Western Europe and then a few days in Eastern Europe, we flew to Rome and got our first taste of Southern Europe. After the tidy streets of Paris and London, and the ancient feeling in Prague and Krakow, the chaos of Rome was […]

Throwback Thursday: Krakow

Our journey to Krakow was a bit wild. I feel like you can’t truly say you backpacked Europe without taking the train. Up until this point we had manged to fly everywhere, but the cheapest and “most convenient” way to get from Prague to Krakow was by train. Since it would take about 12 hours, […]

Throwback Thursday: Prague

Let me begin this entry by saying this: we did not spend enough time in Prague. As much as Sean and I had meticulously planned the first week and a half of our Europe trip in 2012, we left the second part of the trip wide open. We knew we wanted to get to Prague, […]

Throwback Thursday: London

I’ve actually been to London twice now. Once when I was 17 as part of a school trip, and once at 22 immediately after I graduated college to visit my then boyfriend, Sean, who was finishing up his master’s degree at King’s College. When I was in London at 17, it marked the first time […]

Throwback Thursday: Monaco and Nice

It was late May of 2012, and I was about to do something I swore I would never do: willingly attend a car race. Let me explain. I, obviously, grew up in America, and to me the only car races I was familiar with were NASCAR, which were essentially a bunch of bros making a […]

Throwback Thursday: Costa Rica

The second semester of my senior year of college was an interesting one. I had already completed my communications degree, and only needed two more classes to finish up genetics. In order to stay a full time student at 12 credits, I had to fill my schedule with a few fun classes. Oh and statistics […]
