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.


Is there a Luggage Lovers Anonymous?

I'm pretty sure I have a luggage addiction problem. And I've completely accepted that I will never be a backpacker.

That's what I should be using on this upcoming trip; my carry-on travel backpack. We're carrying on to eliminate baggage claim issues during our tight London/Vienna layover. My sister has become a carry-on packing guru; I'm doing so begrudgingly.

I tried, I really did. My first three European jaunts were entirely carry-on. And I now know it is possible to completely loath an inanimate object, like a heavy, awkward, headache-inducing backpack.

That is how this twenty-one-inch roller ended up leaving the store with me the other day. It's still tiny, but it rolls. And it's posh; I've dubbed the vintage tapestry look, "Mary Poppins chic." Think I'll be able to get 9 days worth of a European trip into that thing?

I remain very skeptical.
