For those who know me, it’s no surprise:  I’m a travel bug. It’s both a blessing and a curse– but mostly a blessing.

 

But a travel bug is only one way to describe me. I’m also a passionate writer and photographer, an ambitious student, dog-lover, and a cake decorator in-training.

Did I ever tell you about that one time I basically went on a honeymoon in the Amalfi Coast? 

Only briefly? Hmm, well here--let me fix that. 

Let's begin not in Amalfi but back in Slovenia, where my romantic idea became reality.

I honesty didn't t...

Maybe I’ll start backwards. Why not? There are no rules here, so let’s go expLaur–in reverse. Ready?  All right, here we go:

As I type, the Milan train station is getting farther and farther away, and in turn, Verona is getting closer and closer. The Italian sky ou...

I woke up to the sweet sound of arguing Italians, honking horns, the crashing of the ocean, and a cute boy--what could be better?

It’s no secret, I love writing. I even love photography. But video? To be honest, I don’t have much experience in that field. So I decided to change that.

All right fair reader, let me tell you something: if you're ever in Milan, there are two things you must do. 1) Visit the Duomo. That's a must. And don't just look at it... go inside. It won't bite, I promise. 2) Go to PRINCI and try a bit of everything. I kid you not-...

Slovenia wasn’t even on my radar. No, not at all. It just kind of happened–and I’m oh so glad it did.

In the yellowish, orange world outside my window, rays of sun seep through the trees’ bare branches. It’s 4:00 P.M., and I have two more hours on this train.

On the weekend’s agenda: England. A place I hold near and dear to my heart. A place I haven’t seen since 2...

Call me an awful American, but this weekend was not filled with football. Sorry Superbowl X-something something, I had other plans. But don’t fret, what I did was well worth it, trust me.

This week’s big adventure: Amsterdam. A place known for its...unique culture, but...
