Planning and Processing

Still working on the next installment of the New Zealand report, but a lot of things are going on right now. For one, I’m going to leave how to dive! I’m super excited for that, especially in light of the Tanzania trip this summer. Diving in Zanzibar? Yes, please. In a fairly spontaneous move, a […]

2014: What a Year

When I said I’d have more posts up soon, I obviously meant in several months’ time. …oops? Life has kept me extraordinarily busy. Since my last post, I’ve written a dissertation, found a job that I love, moved into a new apartment that I also love, and done a ton of other stuff that, despite […]

2014: Travel Plans

So I haven’t really been around much at all lately, but life is keeping me very busy. As are the New Zealand photos I’m still working on! But the first part of the report should finally be up some time soon. In the meantime, I wanted to talk a bit about my plans for this […]

New Zealand 2013: Revised Schedule

So when I said that our New Zealand schedule was ‘pretty much fixed’ now, what I meant was that a few days later, the company we had booked with would be sold to another that we had purposefully decided against, which would start a frenzy of finding alternatives; that we would eventually find InterCity and […]

New Zealand 2013: Schedule

Our trip schedule through Middle Earth New Zealand is more or less fixed now. We might change a detail here and there, but other than that, it’ll stay the way it is now. We’ve booked the tour with the lovely people over at Magic Bus. I haven’t included any of the activities in here yet […]

Lazio 2013: Surprise!

In a surprising turn of events, I’m off to Italy again this month. It was all very sudden, obviously, but ever since my nonno died in January, things have been piling up that really need sorting through. So now the boyfriend and I are accompanying my father. It’ll be the first time in nearly a […]

New Zealand 2013: Slightly Smaller, Slightly Thinner

Sooooo, a lot of things have happened lately while I’ve been ever so slowly uploading Italy and London photos. (A report from London is still coming, stay tuned!) A while ago, the boyfriend said he wanted to take one last Big Trip before starting work properly. He officially graduates in September, but as of next […]

2012: Italy & London

¡Hola amigos! Still recuperating from Africa. I would kindly ask whatever kind of parasite I must have brought with me to get the hell out now. But while I eat rusk and drink chamomile tea all day every day, I am planning my upcoming Italy trip more. So far, it looks like I’m going to […]

Africa 2012: Counting Down the Days

“Ok lets do this. Please be nice, airports.” That was Kate’s tweet this morning. Well, her morning, my late afternoon. She’s off to London today, where she’ll be spending a week with our darling friend Kelly while I eagerly await her arrival (and just as eagerly wish I was there with the both of them). […]
