Part One – Wroclaw Going to Wroclaw I had no expectations. It was a required trip for choir (poor me, I have to sing in a bunch of European countries), and I hadn’t really ever heard of the city before. What I found was one of my favorite places so far. Little gnome statues decorate… Continue reading Poland in Two Parts
Thursday – 5 College Kids Leave for Athens… Olivia, Matt, Rowan and I left Prague at 9:30 PM. Corbin was supposed to be on our flight, but he accidentally booked the flights to Athens for exactly 24 hours after the rest of us. So really, only 4 college kids left for Athens. We arrive in Vienna,… Continue reading My Big Fat Greek Weekend

We all met at 9:30 this morning and took the metro over to Malostranksa, which is the closest stop… Continue reading 17,007 – 7.07 Miles
I don’t really like to talk about the whole travel part of my trips. I’m not a huge fan of planes – they’re convenient, don’t get me wrong, but there’s something unnatural about a hunk of metal soaring through the air – and I generally get anxious about any kind of travel anywhere.
