Molly’s European Year: a Recap in Words and Pictures

I will be leaving Austria in exactly one week. After that, I have a two day layover in Iceland, but then it’s home sweet home (Alabama) for Christmas. I’ve been trying for a few weeks now to find the best way to capture the magical insanity that has been the last thirteen months of my […]

July Adventures

Yes, I’m getting all out of order and topsy-turvy on this blog. Bear with me. (I promise that posts about my June trips to Ljubljana, Zagreb, Cesky Krumlov, and Germany will come.) Summer is my favorite time of the year, and this summer, I’ve had a rail pass for all of Austria, and I’ve set […]

Things to Do in Vienna for €5 or LESS

This post is exactly what the title would lead you to believe. I’m currently in my favorite European city, hanging out in my hostel’s rooftop bar, thinking about Vienna.

This area has been a center of […]

Prague City Guide

It’s super accessible to me, only a four hour bus ride from Linz, and has a ton of cool sights, quirky museums, literary history, and gorgeous outdoor spaces. Plus, it’s […]

April, April

The warmer it gets, the more I do…and the more I do, the faster the time flies by. In April, I’ve been on weekend trips to Prague and Amsterdam (blog posts will be made!) and done lots of lovely things in between. At the beginning of the month, I went with Anna Sophie, Doris, and […]
