Three Days in Iceland

Iceland: the land of fire and ice.  Just the nickname of the country is enough to inspire ideas of adventure and daring, and bring to mind gorgeous, endless landscapes.  And Iceland more than lived up to the connotations of its name. I visited Iceland on the tail end of a one month solo European journey. […]

Windswept Scotland with Haggis Tours

Thinking back on Scotland, the thing I remember most is the rugged, untamed terrain, endless mountains, and climbing in worn-out sneakers up those mountains, attempting not to slip and fall off a cliff and kill myself.  It was cold in Scotland, there was an endless breeze that had to be battled anytime I stepped outside.

Feeling unworthy

This post is going to focus more on my personal life as opposed to my travels.  But, I know that without my four months of traveling this past summer, I could never have gotten to where I am today.  This post is for all of you who are stuck at jobs you hate, not making […]

The Serbian Road Trip

When I first planned my trip to Serbia I asked my friends if five days would be enough. I figured that three days for Belgrade, and a couple day trips thrown in would be sufficient. But, my friends had other plans. “Five days? Five days Kelly? You need more time.” I countered with ten days, […]
