” Travel far enough, you meet yourself.” – David Mitchell

This is by far my longest post to date, but it’s been about two months since I last wrote and I have to play catch up so bare with me 🙂 Being home, back in the United States, it’s been hard for me to muster up the words to express how I have been feeling.

The truth is, it’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride. I left the United States for Europe in 2015 to find a missing piece of myself. In Spain, I found that missing piece I was desperately searching for. I finally filled the endless

Keep Calm And Travel On

Well, like all good things do, my 13 months abroad has come to an end and I couldn’t be more in shock. Everything went by so fast. I feel like just yesterday I stepped off that plane with my 4 suitcases filled with youthful excitement, and now am back in the mother land broke as fudge.

20 Most Popular American Stereotypes


Once upon a time, I was traveling to Prague on a bus and I heard two girls behind me talking about how crazy Americans are. Of course, as an American,  I was curious and began eaves dropping.

I heard one girl say, “Can you believe that in schools, children are forced to recite the pledge of allegiance with their hands on their hearts facing the American flag?” in disgust, the other girl responded, “That is scary, its a like cult.” I thought to myself, “A cult, eh? Good to know.”

This was extremely interesting to me. I mean think about it, how often do we think about stuff like that? When I was a child I never once thought about the pledge of allegiance being anything out of the ordinary, it was just a normal part of my everyday life.
