Souvenirs don't always have to be tangible. They don't always have to last forever. And they definitely don't have to cost you money. Your memories can be souvenirs. The pictures you took can be souvenirs. They're some of my favorites. I don't go shopping too often when I travel so often I don't come home … Continue reading Getting Tattoos Abroad
We've all read them before. Posts or YouTube videos or word of mouth story where someone talks about the trip from hell they had to endure because...things didn't go to plan. That's it.

Alps region over Switzerland (near Geneva) Paris at night Starting descent into Madrid Some eye candy!
Due to a technical issue with our plane yesterday, my final evaluation (called a line check) flight from Madrid to Stockholm and back was delayed by about three hours. I spent most of that time fidgeting and worrying about everything I could possibly mess up or forget. Of course I really didn't need to worry. … Continue reading It’s Official!
