Well hello, little old but-not-forgotten blog! How are you doing? Last week I spent four days visiting my little sister, Margot, in Mallorca before she began another course for her Master’s program in Education, which offers courses abroad during the summer. With almost an entire office on holiday, it seemed the perfect chance to escape Sweden for a more tropical climate (although I’m laughing as I am typing this, because it is currently a scorching […]

If you had told me, one year ago, that at this time next year I’d be waking up in the Swedish countryside to this view, I’d have laughed in your face. Yet, here I am. As with almost everything in my life, this situation is only temporary (we are going to try to eventually buy an apartment in Uppsala), but I can’t tell you how excited I am to spend spring and summer here. Swimming […]

Well, hello! It’s me! God, I am a terrible blogger. As soon as life gets in the way, ZAP! The blog just goes right to the bottom of the to-do list. Eh, oh well. I always come back, don’t I?? Anyway, as you probably put gathered from the lack of activity here, life has been INSANE. I know I always say that, but this time I really, really mean it. Between work, travel, a husband in […]

I think I can honestly say that there is nothing better than Swedish summer.It may only last one week per year (sob), but when the sun shines, the whole country just comes alive! After our France/Italy/Switzerland extravaganza, we had planned a few quiet days in Stockholm with my dad and brother before heading back to Colorado. Unfortunately, as soon as we got to Stockholm both Conrad and I became pretty sick (probably due to travel, lack of […]

The trip recap continues!  The day after the big party, we decided to take a little road trip to our favorite Italian border town, Susa. Originally founded by the Gauls, Susa eventually became a part of the Roman Empire, and remains of the Roman city are still found in the town’s central square. It’s small and charming, and one of our favorite places to visit in Italy. Oh, and it’s only an hour’s drive from […]

Hello and happy Friday! I’m a little behind today as I’ve had an extremely busy (but very fun!) week. In lieu of Friday Favorites, I found this great little to-do list of 25 essential things to enjoy before summer ends.  {click the image to open it in a new window} Isn’t it great?

my best travel tips

I consider myself to be pretty well-traveled, but when I think of a pro, I immediately picture my mom. She’s been traveling the world since she was five years old, and has not stopped since. I think we once tried to count how many countries she’d been to, and the number tallied way over 100. She’s been in more airports than anyone I know, and she is a complete master when it comes to packing and traveling. […]
