Street Art Photo Essay | Our Road Trip Through Germany

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes


Anyone up for a roadtrip? Well, a virtual one — because there was way too much street art in Germany, to contain in one post.

First off, it’s worth mentioning that our itinerary was an ambitious one. While no day was the same, every morning was quite similar, jumping out of bed, trying to remember what city I was in, rushing down to breakfast to greet the bright-eyed crew, and then hitting the road to meet with the first local street artist of the day before moving on to the next city.…

Let’s start by at least trying to ignore the fact that it took me 26 years to finally catch the rave (t’hehe) of a music festival.

You hear about these things, you see your friends upload photos at them, but you never really picture yourself actually attending one. At least I never did.

Cat-calling. The foolproof way to spot men who were dropped on their heads multiple times as babies.

As a solo traveler, I’ve encountered them in every shape and size, as they shamelessly pursue and annoy the living crap out of women who are simply minding their own business.

PRAGUE: My Least Favorite City in Europe

Estimated Reading Time: 15 minutes


I never thought I’d ever make a post about a city I hated, because quite frankly, I’m an easy pleaser that’s what she said, and it really doesn’t take much to make me happy (take note, future hubby!). But I’ve been asked this question before, and I never truly had an answer until now.
