With our “city” part of the trip behind us, we headed out west for a week of western Scotland. Thank god Kayla is an amazing driver - this trip literally could not have happened without her!Read More
At the end of September, I visited Scotland with my best friend Kayla who lives in Pennsylvania. We figured Scotland was a good in between point for us and we finally found time to make the trip happen!Read More
The last leg of our little Europe adventure was by far the most tourist-y, but charming all the same! We flew from Copenhagen to Amsterdam, took the train into Central Station, and then took the tram to our new neighborhood of Spui. I knew from the first glimpse of one of many bookstores (below) that I would love this area.Read More
After 36 hours in Oslo, Olivia and I boarded a DFDS Seaways ferry to Copenhagen. The 17 hours ride was not one I will ever repeat, though none of it was the fault of DFDS, just my paranoia.
