Travel bug strikes again!

Travel bug strikes again!

It didn’t take long. I was traveling around so much during July that I was kind of happy for a break … now I am ready to GO again! I know I want to travel a bit locally around Marseille this Fall. I really don’t have time for a big trip between now and my … Continue reading

Crackdown on Airbnb & Uber …

I cannot for the life of me remember why I tried Airbnb for the first time. You’d think it’d be somewhere on this blog that I have had for nearly three years…I am too lazy to look (based on my inclusion of a link…I found it 😉 ). But I have yet to be disappointed. … Continue reading

Adventure all around

No no, I didn’t travel somewhere new or do anything remarkably crazy … but I did TRY something new. Something that would’ve scared me WAY too much, even just a few months ago, to even attempt.

It is super hella hot one week and crazy windy cold the next. Then, thank the heavens it gets warm again. Don’t be fooled … Continue reading

Sorry for the delays but, here we go! After a whirlwind trip around eastern France and down to Lyon, we … Continue reading

SB2013 – Venice, Italy

The trip got kicked off quickly … Hayley arrived at 5pm on a Thursday evening. I hustled to the train station in order to catch the Navette to the airport. This is a cheap way to get from St. Charles to MP airport. I left plenty of time, yet of course…it didn’t work out. I … Continue reading
