Two Days in Louisiana – The Big Not-So-Easy

First of all, I would like to apologize to my friends who were kind enough to accompany me on this adventure. Why am I apologizing? Because I’m an adventure-holic travel zombie who tries to squeeze a lot of activities into … Continue reading

Day 13 in Europe: waterproof pants exist for a reason.

Conundrum: My belt doesn’t really fit right now, so I’m not going to wear it.  Also, waterproof pants take up too much space, better to leave them at home. Both of those statements are mistakes. Today I did the coveted … Continue reading

Not much in particular to note from today, except that I did the “South Shores” adventure through Reykjavik Excursions.  It was really nice, and wonderful to get out of the city and back into nature.  My only complaints would have … Continue reading

Day 11 in Europe: a much-needed lazy day

Not much to report: I woke up around 8 today, took my time getting ready, and was out the door at about 10:30.  First stop, after meandering through town, was Glo, a hipster restaurant with delicious vegetarian food.  Then I … Continue reading

Day 10 in Europe: I walked 16 miles today.

What’s scary is, I didn’t even break my record this trip!!!  But it came pretty close.  By the end of it, my feet were so sore and my legs didn’t want to cooperate.  I considered just laying down on the … Continue reading

Day 8 in Europe: London Bridge didn’t fall down

Day 7 in Europe: I fear that I am lacking the refinement fit for ‘high society’

This morning was one of immense struggle: that is, the struggle to get out of bed and get ready on time.  Subsequently, we left the flat an hour later than anticipated.  But I did learn that English yogurt is pretty … Continue reading
