Is it just me or is this year flying by? Sometimes it feels like moments that shouldn’t be forgotten are gone in the blink of an eye while others drag on for eternity (cue 26 hour flight from New Zealand to Dublin, woof!) Very profound statement, I know. Some days I can hardly believe Christmas [...]

Lately I’ve been in a bit of a slump-slash-quarter-life-identity-crisis. Actually, let’s not kid ourselves here, I’m always in one of those moods. While in some respects I’ve never felt happier – I finally feel like I am on track with my life and doing what I love, and I’m following my dreams yada yada yada. [...]
Tuesday, November 5, 2013. A day that will live in infamy. A day I will never forget. The day I met Peter Jackson. Ok, well, I didn’t *meet* him per say, but I listened to him speak for several hours and sat 15 feet from him. That counts right? Rewind. Tuesday dawned just like any [...]
If there was ever a country perfectly suited for a road trip, it’s Iceland. Majestic lava fields mingle with snow-capped mountains to create a world that will constantly leave you wondering, “is this real life? How can such a place exist?” Existential questions aside, if doing an unforgettable road trip tops your travel bucketlist, head [...]
Sometimes life hands you a trip to Jordan (wahooo!) and sometimes life throws you off a camel in the middle of the desert in Jordan (oh crap!) Travel isn’t always rainbows and unicorns. As much as travel bloggers love to paint the world as a technicolor bomb of beauty, friendship, and once-in-a-lifetime-experiences, let’s be honest here, shit happens. [...]
I’m going to go out on a limb here and make a bold statement; every inch of Greece is beautiful – and not just your regular run of the mill beautiful, I’m talking jaw-droppingly, wow-inducing, mind-blowingly beautiful. How many other countries can say that? Of my two weeks in Greece this summer, I was not [...]
Once upon a time there was a monastery nestled among the jurassic green hills of southern Iceland. Nearby was the impressive Mýrdalsjökull Glacier (try saying that five times fast), a mountain of ice looming over the south coast of this unforgiving land. Run by a friendly abbot, the monastery thrived with villagers and locals coming to [...]
I can hardly believe that it’s been over a month since I stepped off the plane in Auckland. Well a month and a half now as I’m back in Europe for work and my poor blog took a backburner for a week. My bad. It’s been 30 days of ups and downs, highs and lows, everything [...]
When I jumped feet first into the big, bad scary world of travel blogging a year ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Though I had been internet writing for over two years, I had interacted very little with what I soon would discover is a whole ‘nother universe of people [...]
When I was growing up, I was quite a feral child. Running around from one imaginary adventure to another in the otherworldly forest that was my backyard, I always had to be dragged inside for dinner with twigs in my hair and mud on my knees. And let’s not even talk about bath time. Spending [...]
Greetings from New Zealand! It has now been 10 days since I bid farewell to America – the land of Starbucks and burgers – and journeyed halfway round the world to New Zealand, where they also have Starbucks and burgers. Maybe this transition won’t be so hard after all. For any newcomers here who have [...]
I’m just going to go ahead and make a bold statement. I hate planes. I fucking hate them. I hate airports. I hate people who work in airports (TSA agents I’m looking at you). I hate the hassle of airports. Why we just can’t apparate from point A to B by now is beyond me. [...]
Who is Young Adventuress?
Hi, I'm Liz, and I got my first taste for traveling and Spain when I was 16 years old. On my own, 9 years and 30 something countries later, my wanderlust has only grown and the list of countries I want to visit longer. I've been living in Spain for the past few years but now I am about to embark on a new journey across the globe. Follow my adventures as I wander, eat, and photograph my way around the world
