How could I forget Paris?

FRANCE | Thursday, 31 Jul 2008 | Views [530] | Comments [2]

I guess I should let y'all know where I've been since Pamplona, before I start commenting on my activities... I almost forgot about Paris, then to Münich, Jeni's in Schlammersdorf, around the Czech Republic, to Krakow, Poland for a day, and now I'm ... Read more >

Ole, ole ole ole!

Ok!  This is the one you have all been waiting for!  And sadly, it will not be as good a rendition as the one I wrote out the day of, all hopped up on adrenaline and all.  Poo.  Oh, well, you should have been there. Ok, so after my two nights barely ... Read more >

Brotherly Love

NETHERLANDS | Monday, 21 Jul 2008 | Views [797]

Ok, ok, y´all have twisted my arm... and I have nearly 3 hours before my bus to Olomouc(sounds like "puce"... I think). Where was I?  Oh, yes, Northern Ireland.  Ok, well, I flew from Belfast to Amsterdam to meet up with my brother, Shane.... Read more >

Green (and Gray) Isle

NETHERLANDS | Tuesday, 8 Jul 2008 | Views [795] | Comments [3]

I'm having tons of fun over here, but I miss Texas. Mostly for everything Tex-Mex. Queso, enchiladas, Mexican Martinis, REAL salsa... oh, man, what I wouldn't give for some Antonio's or Trudy's or Chuy's or even Arandas right now... Anyway, back ... Read more >

I don't speak French

IRELAND | Monday, 23 Jun 2008 | Views [706] | Comments [3]

Goodness, I didn't even realize I'd left it so long this time! Don't know if I mentioned, but after I got back from Malta, I spent a few days in Valencia again, checking out the beach and what not, and then I went on to Barcelona to meet Laura's friend ... Read more >


MALTA | Wednesday, 11 Jun 2008 | Views [1421] | Comments [5]

I´ve been neglecting you, I know... but I did say that I would try to keep up with this, not that I would.  =) OK. I have to admit, I was very dissapointed with Malta, at first.  Kind of dingy, everything is beige (seriously, even white buildings ... Read more >

Gibraltar was awesome.  Mostly due to the fact that I temporarily made friends with a couple young monkeys (aka, they thought I had food to steal, then realized I didn't, so left me).  Ok, technically they are apes... Barbary Apes to be exact.  They're ... Read more >

I Saw Africa Today

SPAIN | Monday, 26 May 2008 | Views [626] | Comments [1]

I can actually stand up and see it from the window right now... craziness.  It's not that far away... maybe a mile or two? I just arrived in Tarifa (still in Spain), the wind-surfing capital of the world (so I'm told).  Seems great so far (not that ... Read more >

English is harder than we think...

SPAIN | Sunday, 18 May 2008 | Views [772] | Comments [4]

I thought I was going to go to Lithuania to meet up with another traveler... but, the weather decided to turn a little cooler, so I decided to head as far south as possible, to the warmest corner of Europe I could find. So, here I am in Malaga, Spain, ... Read more >

Couchsurfing and a Tour of Berlin

GERMANY | Monday, 12 May 2008 | Views [763] | Comments [3]

Ok, it's been a few days since I've had much access to a computer, and a few things to update on. I found a place to stay, with a girl named Florence and her Brazilian boyfriend Daniel.  She was really great.  They were having an impromptu BBQ in the ... Read more >

Ha ha... whoops...

SWITZERLAND | Friday, 9 May 2008 | Views [587] | Comments [1]

So... I should have tried to book my train ticket earlier... I'm sure I could get out of here today, but I know have a train ticket leaving from Basel tomorrow (Saturday) night. So, now I'm desperately trying to find a place to stay the night. The ... Read more >

I love Basel

SWITZERLAND | Thursday, 8 May 2008 | Views [638] | Comments [3]

I guess I should update... I would rather with pictures, but I can't get them on-line just yet. Basel is wonderful.  But it's more a place to live, than to visit.  I'm not really into going to a whole lot of museums (or paying for them)... and I don't ... Read more >

Change of Plans

GERMANY | Monday, 5 May 2008 | Views [553] | Comments [4]

This will happen often, I'm sure. I, alas, am not going to Paris this week with Jeni.  We did not reserve the train far enough in advance. Instead, I am going to Basel, Switzerland, by myself for a few days (leaving tomorrow).  Eeep! First real step ... Read more >

Went out for Schnitzel und Pommes Fritz this evening. First real German meal. It was good. The thing was huge, the size of the plate (nearly a square foot, i think... at least 9 inches)... 2 or 3 times as large as a regular chicken fried steak. ... Read more >

Aaaaah... relaxation... ;)

GERMANY | Friday, 2 May 2008 | Views [635] | Comments [3]

Ok, I'm not going to lie, I've done a whole lot of nothing the last 2 days. But, I have 5 months here, and I've been super stressed the past few weeks about this trip, and it's nice to sit calmly for a bit. I think Jeni and Mike are going to take ... Read more >


GERMANY | Wednesday, 30 Apr 2008 | Views [744] | Comments [6]

Arrived in Germany today.  It was weird, seeing it from the airplane... all the buildings are grouped together in groups of about 20-150 buildings, with farmland in between.  Not really sure I understand it, but I kind of like it.  And the yards are ... Read more >
