That Time I Went To Europe…

As the days get colder and darker, I can’t help but think back on my sunny summer in Europe. It almost feels like a daydream! Was I really eating pizza on the beaches of Barcelona? Watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle on a late night adventure around the city of Paris? And celebrating (insane) 30th birthday parties and climbing through trees with my amazing Danes in Copenhagen? Yes, I was! And while I had major moments of homesickness on my big trip- I will always look back on those memories fondly and know that it wasn’t my first and last time abroad.

If you’ve never traveled, do it. It doesn’t have to be to Europe. It could be to a neighboring city you’ve never been to, or even a new restaurant in your own town. Need a little inspiration? Pinterest away! My travel board is chalked full of places I’ve been, places I want to go, and super handy jet-set tips.

Short on cash? It’s not so much where you go, just that you go. Being outside of your comfort zone not only teaches you about others, but so much about yourself.

If you’re hoping to plan for a bigger trip rather than something local, head to the travel section of your favorite bookstore. When I was browsing prior to my trip I came across The Lost Girls and it changed my life! I devoured the book and found this extreme sense of adventure that had been buried inside me. I laughed, I cried, and I decided to (eventually, but definitely) plan my own round the world trip with my best friend.
