OPA! Santorini, Greece
MY blog and my social media posting isn’t exactly lining up ! but its hard to get a chance to sit down for a chunk of time and write .
Greece has really been something man ! First it started with the Ferry ride from Athens Port to Santorini Island. The travel time from Italy to Santorini was over 15 hours – we spent 8 hours on a ferry and just overall miserable.
This being our first ferry…
No Risk , No fun - Italia Continued
It is day 12 of my Euro trip and this far I have reached my 3rd luggage swap. Yipee. Travel days are eternal , no matter if it is by bus or train or airplane, it is just always a tough and tiring day.
On Friday we arrived back to Milano from Palermo around 11 AM. My luggage from Palermo was a piece of shit.. aside from being too large for a carry on.. it was basically impossible…
Ciao ! I cannot believe that I have already been in Europe for over a week and that my time in Sicily is over. I have done So much I’m not to sure I can even fit enough words in the post to describe everything ;but as you can imagine I have had a blast ! We are in Sicily for Markus’ Biotechnology conference, so while he’s sitting through lectures and presentations me and Stef have been exploring…
Bye Bye Schweiz : The Journey to Italia
First things first …
I’m the realest * Iggy Azalea voice* no but really ….
I am currently on a plane flying into Sicily, with approximately 1 1/2 hours of sleep, but this just cant wait- Plus I cant sleep on planes… so PHUCK IT.
Rain fall at Rhine Fall
Today was a good day , a long day and a damp day.
Our morning started with mayhem , for various reasons .. we were running late to drive into Markus’ home town .. one disaster turned into another! lol but we made it to Schaffhausen in one piece.
Schaffhausen is certainly my favorite part about Switzerland thus far! I enjoyed it far more than I did Zürich .
First we stopped by Markus’ home and…
First Stop -Zürich , Switzerland
Im here! Today was my first full day in Switzerland!!
Yesterday was a long day , for obvious reasons. My flight was about 10 hours total and the jet lag was pretty serious. When I arrived to Zurich it was 1pm in the afternoon, while back home it was about 7 am. I was running on no sleep (me and seeping on airplanes are not a perfect match) so as much as I tried to act reasonably, I just couldn’t…
Suitcase-ing through Europe
I take off tomorrow, on my euro adventure. The question I get the most is ” are you excited” … yes, deep down I am thrilled. I often want to cry because I cant believe I’m fortunate enough to be able to leave BOSTON and visit these places!! other times I want to cry because I am just soo overwhelmed in all sorts of ways.
First of all money is TIGHT and yet, despite my constant saving plans it…
Life’s not so bad after all
so finally it has come time for me to set up my count down app for the end of summer, as well as announce that I am the WORST at keeping a blog. *sighs*
In 27 Days I will embark in my trip to Europe, I haven’t yet told my mother , although all the shopping I have been doing may be an indicator. whoops .
I have purchased my backpack .. I have no idea how people mange to travel with a months…
Oh sweet lord ! WordPress has a new interface!
I couldn’t even manage around the old one * sighs*
Anyhow, Happy July ! by now summer is well on its way .. with tropical storm ‘Arthur’ on its way to ruin the minimal plans I had set in for the fourth.
I figured it being July it was finally time to announce my biggest and baddest travel endeavor , which I have hinted , suggested and dreamed of for a while now .. GOING TO EUROPE.
I haven’t told one too many people … but when everyone in the universe asks you ” how’s the job search going” , I just can’t help but cave in … because there is no job search going… at all. in fact I can’t remember the last time this past month I have opened a job search engine.
What a relief ! lol
Im taking a break until the fall time , enjoying the time I have left of my twenty first year of life and It’s official I am going off to Europe !
I booked my one way ticket to Switzerland , the rest is in the works.
If and when ( he he ) I return I will pick up where I left off.
although I am DYING to get my career started and on its way , I figured taking a summer position and traveling towards the end and beginning of fall wasn’t all that bad of an idea.
I am young and I feel like I will never be able to pick up and travel through Europe ‘just because’ so the time is now.
My mom is going to have a panic attack when I tell her, primarily because all she ever asks me is if I am still searching for jobs … followed by “don’t forget you have loans”…. BLAH BLAH BLAH .
I will cross that bridge when I get there ! My loans will always be there , regardless if I travel or not.
so there you go ! surprise , surprise
I have about a month & a half to figure out how to set up a bullet proof budget for this trip, where to go and what to see !
In a future post I will share our travel destinations and ideas we have.
you must be certain that I will definitely ( right clicks for spell check.. I just can’t ever get the spelling of definitely right -___-) be blogging while i’m there , which may be interesting because I don’t have a cool iPad or something more bloggin friendly but i’ll figure it out :]
Summer is here
Yesterday was approximately 80 degrees . Wicked hot * Boston accent * .. Which I don’t have .. People seen to always question as to why .. Um I don’t even think I know a single person with a legitimate Boston Accent .. Its practically a myth ahah Anyways ! That is not even what I am here to write about today – tangent.
Back to what I was saying .. Its Wicked hot , so I guess its official we can…
