How to Plan a Trip

I’ve taken some amazing trips. And, each trip was unique. But, I plan all of my trips in very similar ways, even though the final product can look drastically different. Of the 18 days that I was in New Zealand, 16 of them were on a small group tour. But, when I backpacked Europe for […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
