I'm a 37-year old Seattle girl who was bitten by the travel bug on my first tour of Europe in 2004. This personal blog follows my attempts to visit as many countries as I can, as often as my budget will allow. Since starting this blog in 2007, I've also worked as a freelance copywriter for an online travel publication. This only served to add even more must-see locations to my already extended list.
Follow me as I try to balance "real life" with exploring the world, all while trying to conquer a wickedly ironic case of homesickness.


We're booked!

It's official: we're heading back across the pond in May! Due to this less-than-desirable economy, we've had to shorten the original itinerary quite significantly. But we are still heading to Central Europe; Austria, to be specific. We'll be based in Vienna and driving out to Salzburg, where I just might run down the street singing "I Have Confidence" at the top of my lungs with the rest of the wacky Americans.

And since we so conveniently fly through London on the way back home, we're going to hang up our coats and stay a few days in England, as well. We've already planned one train trip out into the surrounding areas, specifically Canterbury. I didn't get to see quite as much of it as I was hoping on our visit several years ago. And I'm very much hoping to make it to Hampton Court Palace this year. The Tudor history dweeb in me has a clinical need to see this place!

This brings up my budget European travel tip for the day: British Airways is having a very impressive sale right now. Register your email address for an additional $20 off each way. Book before 29 Jan, travel before 24 May. If you can, by all means do.

Aaahh, going back. It feels so good! Let the countdown begin!

Here, my best friend lives in Faversham, which is right by Canterbury. AND I'm supposed to be visiting her in May!

My husband is Auatrian so we go quite a bit. I would move to Vienna tomorrow. You will fall in love with Vienna and Salzburg. Both are beautiful. So jealous!
