Iceland was the last stop on Robin and I’s big trip this summer, and I couldn’t be more excited to return to this beautiful country. Three years ago I was here in the beginning of May, so I was curious to see how my experience would change with the difference in the seasons. I’m warning […]


In case you haven’t heard already through Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, I have landed safe and sound back in the land of the maple leaf! The flight back was great with amazing service (as always) from Icelandair. If you’ve never flown with them, I highly recommend it. Their staff are wonderful and super helpful with […]

The artist Lars Stroschen operated under the pseudonym Propeller Island from 1986 onwards, and in 1997 he created four rooms within his […]


Last week Robin and I spent some time wandering around Hamburg. Three years ago when I was in the city, I played tourist and did a walking tour to see the main sights. I would highly suggest doing it with Sandeman’s New Europe as it was super awesome and you learn lots about the city, […]
