    The Best Food Markets in Europe

    I don’t know if you’ve figured this out yet or not, but I absolutely love eating when I travel. This isn’t really a new thing. What is a little bit more recent, however, is my love for food markets. After visiting Copenhagen Street Food and the Rotterdam Markthall this spring, all I can think of is finding even more awesome food markets. In order to do that, I decided to compile a list of all of the best food markets in Europe. So, without further ado, here they are – brought to you by probably every travel blogger on the internet! In case you’re looking for something in particular, here’s…

When my mother came to visit me at university this past April, one of the top things on her list to do was to take a day trip out of my little university town to visit a Scottish castle or two. Because I didn’t have class on Wednesdays this semester (score), I was luckily able to accompany her. Early Wednesday morning on the week she visited me, we were met by our…

When our bus from Inverness to Drumnadrochit flew right past our stop and started making its way out of town, we knew we had made a BIG mistake. How in the world were we going to get to our hotel to check in? Would we have to walk? It was starting to look like it. But then again, maybe, just maybe, things would turn out okay. And they did! As it turned…

When a couple of friends and I joked that we should rent out a castle during our reading week, none of us actually thought that we would go through with it. A few days later, though, we had found an affordable attic apartment on Airbnb and were making plans for how to get there. What started out as a crazy scheme turned into the perfect setting for writing essays and daydreaming that…

I moved to London last September expecting to spend the next three years, if not the rest of my life there. I did plenty of the stereotypically tourist-y things, but I was in no rush to do everything that there was to do. I had time, I thought to myself.

I absolutely fell in love with Brighton when I visited it this October on a day trip, and I hope to get a chance to go there again soon. While I’m just…
