“People All Over The World (Join Hands)”

December 13, 2011

Nothing backpacking-wise today was so spectacular that it can’t wait for tomorrow’s post, which I can tell you already is going to be a long one. Instead, 27 hours after being Freshly Pressed, I’m stunned and ecstatic that Round Two is kicking Round One’s tail. 3,600 hits, the post has been read over 2,100 times, […]

Twice in a Lifetime, from Cordoba, Spain.

December 12, 2011

At five o’clock today, the post was going to be called “Greetings from Cordoba, where not much is happening.” Things changed. Tonight’s post might be long, but broken into two parts told in reverse order. First day off the Semester at Sea ship in June 2009, in Cadiz, Spain. It was my first time in […]

I Don’t Have An Inspired and Alliterative Title For This One (aka It’s 1:30a.m. In Sevilla)

With four travel days to go, had I been smart, I would have been on the 8a.m. train from Madrid, or at the very latest, the 9a.m. That said, I got to the train station at 10:15a.m. for the 11:00 train. I’d spent the night up in my room hanging out with a group of […]

Frigid Madrid

I love when people write me saying they’ve enjoyed taking the journey, too, and are sad to see it end. With that in mind, here is what we all did today. We were really sad to leave Lisbon last night. House Grandma fed us soup and cake and gave us a big hug. We’ve loved […]

Repeat the Sounding Joy (December in Barcelona)

December 1, 2011

I’ve adequately set myself up to not sleep tonight. At only 9p.m. in Barcelona, I wandered across the street to get a small hot chocolate and ended up with a medium peppermint mocha. Tis the season. Tomorrow, I’ll rise early for a three hour train to Madrid and I am getting myself on the night […]

That Time a Man Gave Me His Knife in Barcelona

This is going to be the first time in awhile there are no photos. Once upon a time, these posts relied on words alone to be interesting. My iPad won’t connect to the hostel wifi and I’m on the hostel computer. I hope this will suffice. I’ve been short on posting in the past day […]

A Different Kind of Writing Day

August 24, 2011

I taped my metro and Museo del Prado tickets on the same page of my journal, and with thoughts from a friend, ended up with this – written at breakfast on my last day in Barcelona hours after Dad left for the airport. I hope you enjoy. As always, any feedback, comments or ideas you […]

Tonight’s post coming from someone hoping you check out talented friends from upstate New York… Give a listen to Karma’s Army’s latest EP. Everyone loves a tribute to Grandpa… Check out “Hey There Pop.” Listen, download and share if it moves you. If you’ve made it to this blog, I think the writing will. Somewhere […]

Facing backwards on the train, Backwards on the train… Sittin here and gettin puke-y Moving backwards throughout Spain. We spent Saturday night getting lost in Madrid and stumbling upon hundreds of bars, restaurants and an energetic, vibrant nightlife. Up and down the streets we went until we ended up far enough away a taxi sounded […]

Serious thoughts Before the massage today, I took advantage of the hotel pool. A dark room, barely lit, the bottom of the pool unseeable, the water lit a dark green. The water no temperature hot or cold, almost unnoticeable. I glided right in, solitary in this oasis. I felt the need to do laps. Not […]
