Photo Friday: Venice, Italy

In January of 2008, I was backpacking my way around Europe for 2 months. Italy was at the top of my list to visit, especially Venice. I stayed for several days in this beautiful city, soaking it all in, hopping around all the sights. I really loved Venice, though in some ways it made me […]

Mysterious Walls of Córdoba

While I was wasting time at work this afternoon, I began to sift through the vaults of unpublished posts on my blog. Seriously, who does this? Anyways, I came across this draft I meant to post a year ago when I was living in southern Spain. There has been a mystery brewing in Córdoba, and […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I celebrated last night with friends in one of only two Irish pubs in Logroño. Even though they ran out of Leprechaun hats before we arrived, the night was still a success, filled with lots of Irish music, beer foam mustaches and a lot of glittery green make-up.

It all comes down to one easy, simple concept: food. […]

Lanzarote: Land of Volcanoes

My second full day in Lanzarote was just as jam-packed as my first. It was a bit overcast when I woke up, but it burned off by mid-morning. I decided to check out the famous Sunday market in Teguise, the old capital and located smack dab in the center of the island. It gets going […]

Northern Lanzarote

  My first day in Lanzarote was just incredible. After scarfing down an enormous English breakfast and picking up my convertible for the weekend (oh yeah!) all I wanted to do was drive around with the top down, especially since I hadn’t driven a car since September! I decided to head up north since it […]

First Impressions of Lanzarote

I am not a big vacation resort traveler. When I get the time off from work, I love to have a jam-packed, adventure-filled vacation, seeing as many new places as possible. I generally dislike destinations catered to tourists, where people automatically address you in three different languages and serve only foreign food. However, as the […]
