For those of you new to Young Adventuress, Photo Friday is a weekly series I run where I feature a photo and a short story from a trip I did before I had this blog! For me it’s a great way to go back and relive and share wonderful travel memories before I entered the [...]

“The one who does not remember history is bound to live through it again” George Santayana Does anyone else have a morbid fascination with World War II and the Holocaust, or is it just me? Maybe I was exposed to Schindler’s List at too early an age. Maybe I was dragged to the Holocaust museum in [...]
Backpacking through Eastern Europe, I was able to knock quite a few countries off of my bucket-list. Many of them I fell in love with wholeheartedly and I knew then and there I would want to return one day. Other places, not so much. Yup, you guessed it, Bratislava, Slovakia was on that list of [...]
What’s the most beautiful place you have ever been to? This is a question I get asked a lot as a travel blogger. The answer is not always easy. I have been to many beautiful places around the world, each one distinct and special in its own way. But there is one place always at [...]
This week’s Photo Friday comes from a little town in northern Europe: Delft, the Netherlands! How many of you guys ever dream about going somewhere you’ve read about, browsed through pictures or even seen in a movie? Have you ever tried to make going to your dream place a reality? I am a very visual [...]
Ollantaytambo, Peru: an amazing alternative to Machu Picchu! So it’s been way too long since I’ve uploaded a post onto my Photo Friday series! Bad blogger, I know. Looking back, I realized I’ve posted a lot of photos from Europe, where I spent most of my time. I need to expand my horizons! Why hadn’t I [...]
I have a confession. You can’t tell anyone, promise? Ok, here is goes… I’m a BIG dork, a HUGE dork. Not like a secret comic book lover or a fan of calculus, but a fully-fledged, unashamed, out of control nerd. I was a medieval studies major in college, at an all-women’s college, that I went [...]
Back a few years ago when I was living in Salamanca, my parents came to visit me over the holidays. While they were here I made my one and only trip (so far) to Barcelona. I don’t know what it was about Barcelona (the long lines, losing expensive tickets, getting pickpocketed or taking forever to [...]
I have fond memories of Ireland. I spent a week in the Emerald Island in June of 2008, after finishing up my university study abroad year in Salamanca, Spain. Back in the day, I found a one-way flight from Madrid-Dublin-Washington D.C. with AerLingus for $200, that’s right, dollars, NOT euros. It included a 1 week [...]
While writing yesterday’s post, the 5 Most Beautiful Places I’ve Been…So Far, I had a blast going through hundreds of old photos saved on my external hardrive from trips I did years ago. I’ve been to Italy many times, but one of my favorite places there has to be Positano. South of Naples on the [...]
With all this media attention in the States about Chick-fil-A and LGBT rights, reminds me of a few summers ago when I was living in Madrid and traveling around Europe. On my way home, I stopped in the UK for a few days to visit a good friend in Brighton. Now Brighton is one of [...]
When I first truly fell in love with Spain and traveling was when I studied abroad in Salamanca from 2007-2008. The oldest university in Spain and the third oldest in Europe, Salamanca, is filled with medieval, historical charm. Nestled in the south of Castilla y León, one of the most traditional “Castilian” areas in Spain, [...]
