Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Leipzig is a little town south of Berlin that is full of hidden treasures like my favorite beer, the only reason I ended up here (I’ll get to the beer traveling posts eventually). I started the day with a Polish family and a German friend by using BlaBlaCar from Berlin to Leipzig, met a friend as soon… Continue reading Lost in Leipzig | Day 27

How’s Berlin? | Day 25

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Arriving half-asleep in a city you’ve never been, dropped off in a bus terminal that looks like you could be anywhere in the world when all you can envision in your head is a Berlin Wall covered in graffiti that is nowhere in sight might cause some people to panic. Where is the city? I… Continue reading How’s Berlin? | Day 25

Goodbye Copenhagen | Day 24

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

When people think of the happiest place on earth, I think for many Americans, Disneyland comes to mind. Denmark has been named the happiest country in the world and well the land of Mickey Mouse can’t come close (for me). It was hard to leave Scandinavia when it’s countries all rank in the top 10… Continue reading Goodbye Copenhagen | Day 24

I’m learning quickly how hard it is stay motivated when travelling while battling a cold that just doesn’t seem to want to go away and maybe it’s actually because of travelling that the cold isn’t… Continue reading Iceland, you’ve changed | Day 2

Back in Iceland | Day 1

Processed with VSCOcam with kk2 preset

After 5 years, I’ve made it back to the land of fire and ice. I sit in Café Mezzo finding myself in a weird juxtaposition looking at Nordic flags outside, but hearing bad country music coming from the speaker above me. I’ve traveled thousands of miles across the sea to the home of Sigur Rós… Continue reading Back in Iceland | Day 1

Biophilia

Processed with VSCOcam with lv03 preset

Biophilia hypothesis: the idea that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. The cool breeze hits my face as it rustles the branches causing them to do a little subtle dance. I am surrounded by the sound of birds chirping and every so often, I’ll catch a… Continue reading Biophilia
