The Golden Ring, Part II - Sergiev Posad & Yaroslavl
After a long evening the day before, I slept in and caught an 11:30am train to Sergiev
Posad. I didn’t think I needed a full day there anyhow, since there was pretty
much just the monastery. The local train was slow and hot, but it got me there
after about ...

The Golden Ring, Part I - Vladimir and Neighboring Towns
Russia is a cool place. It’s also really fucking big, and
most people don’t venture too far from Moscow and St. Petersburg. My original
plan was to spend 3 days revisiting Moscow and then a week in Turkmenistan
before heading into Uzbekistan, but when my vi...

Getting There is Half the Battle - San Francisco to Vladimir, Russia
So, a bit of backstory – I have wanted to try out the A380
for a while and haven’t had the chance to do so yet. While British Airways and
Emirates serve SFO with it, BA didn’t fly it on the day that I wanted to leave
(and leaving from SFO on it was way more...

Summer 2015: Back in the (Former) USSR!
Okay, well I have obviously learned that I am terrible at keeping up with writing things. I had written part of several additional posts at some point and never really properly finished them. Never mind that now though, I have a new trip to plan! There are ...

Paris - My Adventures as an Art Cynic and Pickpocket Taunter
As usual, clicking on the pictures will make them bigger. It will also make your mouse button happier. Try it. It might even make reading through the ~4800 words here more enjoyable. I left off where I was boarding my Eurostar train from London which I made...

The UK and the Day From Hell
Well, I'm getting better: I think I kept this one under 3500 words. Also, if you want to see any of the pictures bigger, just click on them. So, to recap, I didn’t sleep at all during my last night in
Reykjavik. I left my hostel for the airport at 5am. Once...

Iceland
This post comes in at around 4000 words, so it took a while to write. I have a lot to say about Iceland apparently. I’ll start by saying that I really want to go back to
Iceland. I absolutely loved it, and so far it has definitely been my favorite
place tha...

Two Days in Oslo (and a Mystery Sandwich)
Sorry yet again for the delay – I haven’t had much time (or
have been too tired after full days of sightseeing and/or travelling) to write
blog posts. While it seems a long time ago now, it’s a bit strange to think
back and say “Oh, two weeks ago I was in t...

Western Norway: Fjord Country
Sorry this has taken so long to post, I'm having trouble finding any time to do much blogging because I'm busy exploring each city! I'm pretty sure most of these posts will be very picture-heavy, especially this one. I took an absurd number of pictures duri...

Copenhagen, Trondheim, and Snasa
Warning: This post is image-heavy! Copenhagen - Day 2 After my first day wandering around Copenhagen, I retired to my very comfortable bed at the First Hotel Mayfair. The hotel included breakfast, which was a bonus in a city like Copenhagen which is rather ...
