Packing up all your belongings into one suitcase and one backpack isn’t the easiest task ever, but it is my final task here in Madrid. Although it is true that I came to Spain with the same amount of space in my bags, due to the Law of Accumulation of Random Sh*t, I think that my belongings might...

If you ask me where Bratislava is, I can tell you it is in Slovakia, but if you ask me why I decided to travel to Bratislava, I would have to tell the truth and say: “No real reason. The flights were cheap.” Probably a month ago I was trying to plan some of the last trips I would be able to make,...

Holy Week. (That is what the title of this blog means, in case you were wondering.) Holy Week is the culmination of the season of Lent for Christians, especially Catholics, and it is an important if not the most important week during the year. While Spain abolished Catholicism as the official...

Well, I’ve been meaning to get back to France for a while now. And now, I’ve done it. I still haven’t gone to the most mainstream of places: Paris, but it doesn’t bother me too much, as it seems like everyone ends up passing through there at some time or another. I was bummed that Notre Dame...
