Ireland with Shamrocker Tours

“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often though, they hurt.”-Anthony […]

Haunts around Paris

I expected to not like Paris. Every time traveling came up in conversation, casual or otherwise, people would throw in their thoughts and opinions on Paris. “You have to go to Paris once in your life,” they say, “even if its not the greatest city in the world.” But there are songs about Paris, movies! […]

What to do in Belgrade Serbia

Serbia was one of the most unique places that I visited for a number of reasons.  But the two reasons that made it the most special, for me, was one; the fact that I actually knew Serbians and they showed me around their city; and two, that Serbia, even the capital city Belgrade, was not […]

Never Satisfied: Life after Travel

I’ve considered myself a traveler ever since my first trip to Europe in 2008.  As traveling has consumed a greater part of my life over the years, I’ve noticed more and more changes in myself.  Traveling has a way of making you feel connected to other people, and to the world; but, traveling can also […]

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, […]

2014 Roundup and 2015 Preview

Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” I think that, in 2014, I managed to […]

The People of Serbia

“Serbia, why are you going to Serbia?”  Everyone asked me this question before I left for my trip.  And it was usually asked in a not-so-nice way, and was always followed with, “Isn’t Serbia dangerous?”  I felt like rolling my eyes every time, but I didn’t, I plastered a smile on my face and replied warmly to […]

My Mixed Feelings on Amsterdam

I’m not exactly sure why I decided to go to Amsterdam.  Sure, there was the Peter Bjorn song that I had fallen in love with, bearing the name “Amsterdam”; and sure there was that draw of seeing the place where both weed and prostitution were legal; and who could forget the history of Anne Frank, […]

Prague: The Fairytale City

I dubbed Prague the Fairytale city after spending approximately 15 minutes in it. The reason is quite obvious to anyone who has visited Prague, or even just looked at pictures. It looks like something out of a fairytale, or something that was dreamed up in Walt Disney’s imagination. Everything looked so beautiful that it made […]
