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 [...]

What if I were to tell you a place existed both untouched by time or tourists? In Italy, nonetheless. What if I were to tell you I’ve discovered the most curious, unique and hauntingly beautiful city in Italy? What if I were to tell you it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in [...]
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 [...]
How small of a world do we live in? After years of traveling anywhere and everywhere, I’ve realized six degrees of separation is more fact than fiction, and at this point, I shouldn’t be surprised anymore by coincidences with strangers. Living in a digital age has enabled us to better connect more than ever, and [...]
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 [...]
Everyone dreams about Tuscany, right? Or is it just me? While I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around Italy over the years, I always put off visiting Tuscany. Once I even canceled a trip there. Why? Because for me, and what I suspect for a lot of you, Tuscany represents the ultimate Italian experience. [...]
At the risk of sounding like a massive tool, I am going to start off this post with one of my favorite quotes about Italy, you know, because there are so many to chose from. “A man who has not been in Italy, is always conscious of an inferiority, from his not having seen what [...]
“I am sure my sisters must all envy me. I only hope they may have half my good luck. They must all go to Brighton. That is the place to get husbands.” Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice I’m gonna let you guys in on a little secret; times have changed. Nowadays, Brighton is NOT the [...]
What do you think of when you think of Iceland? Icy glaciers? Northern Lights? Vikings and volcanoes? More waterfalls than you can shake a stick at? Or if you’re me, then Game of Thrones. Come on, don’t be shy. Although certainly emblematic of Iceland today, especially in travel blogs, there is so much more to [...]
Kalimera!! Good morning in Greek, this was my favorite way to start each and every day for the 2 weeks I was in Greece in June. Well, that along with an iced cappuccino and a giant bowl of Greek yogurt topped with fruit and honey. So flippin’ tasty! Hot off the boat from traveling from [...]
No matter how many times I travel to Italy, it continues to surprise me. Before people (Americans) travel to Italy, I feel like they have a very limited idea of what’s in store for them. Pizza, pasta, tall, dark and handsome Italian men in Armani riding vespas around leaning towers and Roman forums. You get [...]
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
