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.


Merry Christmas!

This Christmas London Tube Map makes me smile!

What's in a name?

You know what I don't understand? Different city names in different languages. I mean, city names are proper nouns, right? Just like the name of a person. They aren't up to interpretation. It's a name! To me, it's the same as someone saying to me, "Your name is Lisa? I think I'll call you Lois."

But that's not my name.

At what point did someone somewhere say, "I don't like Praha; I'll call you Prague." Or "Je n'aime London; je préfère Londres."

Am I the only one who thinks that is strange?
