An artsy day in Ljubljana

An artsy day in Ljubljana

On my recent trip to Slovenia, I chose to only spend one day in the capital city, Ljubljana. This is not because there is anything unappealing about Ljubljana. On the contrary, it’s quite a charming city, like a bite sized Prague. The truth is, I get bored easily, and would much rather yearn to return to a place than feel ready to GTFO. Here is how I spent my one day in the capital of Slovenia!

A Weekend in London

A Weekend in London

I have been to London a few times and I openly embrace the twatty American cliche of “loving London.” I really do! I love the history and the rainy weather. I love the narrow streets and the abundance of homewares (I FUCKING LOVE HOMEWARES). I love gin! London loves gin! This place is great! They have shit coffee, but I am a forgiving lady.

Norway: A Hiker's Heaven

Norway: A Hiker's Heaven

I had wanted to go to Norway for several years. Although it’s expensive AS FUCK, it’s also home to some of the most naturally beautiful landscapes in the world. I love hiking and had my sights set on completing the three most famous Norwegian hikes: Trolltunga, Preikestolen, and Kjeragbolten. Moreover, I wanted to hike all three in just three days. I knew this would be a challenge because finding logistical information online proved a bit tough in itself, but I was hell bent.

Christmas at the Igloo Village

Christmas at the Igloo Village

For years, I wanted to go to Kakslauttanen and sleep in a glass igloo under the northern lights. I had looked into this, but it was so expensive, and hard to book. In July of 2014, I took a chance, emailing if they had any availabilities over Christmas. I got VERY lucky, as there had just been a cancellation (you normally have to book a year in advance) and I was able to share a special Christmas with my sister. Here are a few details to keep in mind if you are planning a trip to Kakslauttanen.

THE BEST OF AMSTERDAM

THE BEST OF AMSTERDAM

Amsterdam holds a very special place in my heart. My mother first took me there when I was in high school because I wanted to visit the Anne Frank House. My mum is the one who taught me how to travel smartly. She taught me to bring half as much “stuff” and twice as much money and to wear comfortable shoes regardless of style because "I'll be damned if foot discomfort prevents me from meeting people and seeing this world." Her free spirit complements her grounded mind, and I remember coming to that realization while walking around Amsterdam with her.
