The Next Step

I mentioned in my last post that, with the start of April, things are winding down incredibly quickly. To be honest, I’m surprised by how quickly the year has passed. We’re creeping up on the end of my contract, after which I will promptly head off to my WWOOFing weeks prior to my family’s arrival…

March ReCap: Paris and Rome

March just flew by, didn’t it! First thing’s first, gotta tell you about Paris. I finally took a trip, one that my friend Zach and I planned months in advance, and while Paris (still) isn’t my favorite city, it was great to see a friend from college that I haven’t met up with since July!!…

Viareggio Carnevale

This post is about… two weeks late, I think, but it’s been hella busy these past two weeks to be fair. I’ve had two university friends visit in those two weeks, and playing tourist is quite possibly one of the most exhausting things ever. Not to say that it wasn’t fun, of course, but I…

The Ferrari Factory

My goodness, this trip was an exercise in understanding luxury. Luxury that I will never, ever have unless I marry rich, which honestly looks a bit unlikely at this point. I’ve never really been one for cars. Don’t understand the nuances that really get some engines going, if you’ll forgive the joke. Having some experience…

Catching Up. Again.

So, I could spend a little while apologizing for the lack of posting. I think the last time I posted here was sometime in November? Wow, that’s a long time. Alright, I am sorry for not getting anything out to you guys in that time. I have a couple of excuses—more like explanations—but I figure…
