Alright people, welcome to that week of my life that became a scene from “Almost Famous.” Nothing much exciting to reportso far but trying to get in the documenting habit early. Yesterday was a fly day- I flew all Wednesday night from Seattle to Amsterdam, +9 hour time change, so landed around 1pm local time. … More Europe Spring Break: Day 1&2
Found this in my draft folder!! No photos but sill had to share after all that thumb typing! Sevilla: ¡que duende! What a way to finish Spain.

*Note, I was going to try and do just one blog post per city, but it just felt too long! So, sorry another Barcelona post is coming.* It was another early wake up after our night out. Susan and Will were nice enough to pick me up at the ungodly hour for my short flight to … More Day 16 & 17 : Barça, Part I
Today we were heading into Basel, Switzerland, where my cousin works and lives *and* my aunt works and has an apartment to stay at in the city. My flight to Barcelona was early the next day so we’d planned to come in anyways and spend the night rather than get up and drive an hour … More Day 15: A Confession and Family Time in Basel, Switzerland
