60 Hours in Reykjavik

29 Jan

Iceland is amazing and you will totally fall in love with it like I did. I’m going to tell you why and how to do it for slightly less than usual, because a trip to this country is nearly as expensive as pilot school… Day 1 Take the earliest flight out to Keflavik as possible. Location […]

48 Hours in Berlin

27 Apr

So very recently I surprised my little sister with a mini getaway to Berlin! It’s a city neither of us had visited before, mostly due to the fact we’ve spent so much time in Spain & Italy, or over in the States visiting our family. It was a bit of a rogue choice, and booked […]

Mishaps in South America
