Up and Coming Over Yonderlusting

We have been back in the United States now for 90 days and in Austin alone for the last 80 or so.

Photo Essay: The Red Light District in Amsterdam

It is one of those places that, I promise, you don't really know what you're getting yourself into when you head into the red light district. I can understand why this "taboo" tourist attraction garners the attention it gets and attracts thousands of people to wander the streets. I saw Johns staring into the windows… Continue reading Photo Essay: The Red Light District in Amsterdam

2012: Our Year in Review

Walking with the Masters: Florence with Walks of Italy

Meet Bernie. He is probably the best tour guide we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is a professor of Art History - a subject that I had a passion for in college - and if I’d had him as a teacher then, I probably would have not despised it by the end.… Continue reading Walking with the Masters: Florence with Walks of Italy

Finding Foodie Florence with Walks of Italy

You have no clue how happy I was to get to Florence, Italy. I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy ourselves at the Colosseum or the Vatican, I was just glad not to be in Rome anymore. The chaos of Italy is concentrated there. I can understand why people love it but I needed something a… Continue reading Finding Foodie Florence with Walks of Italy

Blowing Stuff Up: Our Pyrotechnics Workshop with Cloud 9 Living

*KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM* I felt shivers down my spine. No, I'm not a pyro but I've dreamed about being a pyrotechnician since the day I struck my first match and lit my first artillery shell.

Behind Closed Doors: The Vatican Tour with Walks of Italy

The Vatican is known for housing some of the most infamous works of art and being the basis for countless conspiracy theories but what really got us giddy in the pants were the stories that accompanied our VIP Vatican tour with Walks of Italy. History, secrecy, reverence, scandal, beauty- there isn't much that the world's smallest independent state… Continue reading Behind Closed Doors: The Vatican Tour with Walks of Italy

It is one of those iconic travel locations that you can’t stop thinking about - just like Machu Picchu. It is when you know you have reached “that” point in your life when you can finally cross off another big one off your list.

How To: Train Across Europe with a Eurail Pass

Boats and I have a rocky relationship. Buses and I are taking a break after spending over 20 accumulated days on them traveling from Mexico to Argentina. Planes and I are good, but oftentimes their cost-to-worth ratio makes me consider straying. So who is there waiting with open arms to comfort me in my hour of… Continue reading How To: Train Across Europe with a Eurail Pass
