50 DAYS











I know it's been a while, but I've had good reasons to justify the 4 month blog hiatus. A mini OE spanning 8 countries was the main event, but moving cities, apartment hunting and starting a real adult job all contributed to the lack of posts over the summer months (along with some good old procrastination).

Life is now slowly settling down, and it's actually a relief to no longer be living out of a suitcase and to finally have my own room to come home to. Here's hoping a more regular schedule means more regular blog posts too! Still, the wanderlust is very real and I'm itching to jet set off on another adventure (next on the list is definitely SEA!). In the meantime though, I'm reliving my European memories and sharing 10 things I learnt while I was travelling:

1. Google maps (and McDonald's wifi) will save your life
2. Trying to take good photos is both enjoyable and infuriating
3. Air BnBs are the best places to stay
4. Wearing the same 4 outfits on repeat for 5 weeks may drive you insane (until you find an H&M)
5. After seeing 10+ churches/cathedrals, they all end up looking the same
6. Everything is closed on Sundays (like, everything)
7. Walking 20,000+ steps in a day isn't uncommon; choose footwear appropriately
8. Ask asian people to take group photos for you (seriously, they know what they're doing)
9. You will learn the phrase "Please mind the gap between the train and the platform" in multiple languages
10. Eat everything; it's all delicious

    1. Thanks so much Kim, the first 3 photos were taken using a Canon 5D and all the rest are just from my iPhone 5s!
