Lyn and Fin Travel Ireland

By this point in my blog, you should know that I love sharing travel stories. One day, as I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram, I stumbled upon a post of only words. So, obviously I read it. The author of this post is a good friend of mine here in London, Lyn. Lyn has a beautiful soul full of wanderlust and adventure, so I knew whatever this post was, it was going to be good. I hope this tale of travel in Ireland inspires and moves ...

The Most Memorable Canal Trip

As you read in The Amsterdam Experience, my boyfriend and I cruised the canals of Amsterdam on an Airbnb Canal Boat Experience. I told you the stories of stray dogs in Greece and huskies in Norway. And to end the stories from Amsterdam, I’d like to tell you a story told by our amazing tour guide: Sjoerd. Sjoerd guided the boats along the canals while telling us incredible details about Amsterdam. And he only crashed into a police boat once! ...

Birthday with the Huskies

The second story I heard in Amsterdam was, again, told by one of the sisters. But it was too good not to write about! Now, I can’t remember if this sister was Madeline or Sydney…so, we will just say it was Sydney. Sydney told me the story about her twenty-first birthday, and it also had to do with dogs! This time, the dogs were the Norway huskies. If you remember from my Follow the Dog post, Sydney and her sister were from the west coast ...

Follow the Dog

This is the first story that I heard in Amsterdam! My boyfriend and I were on board our Airbnb canal boat experience and cruising along the Amsterdam canals with seven strangers. If you read my Amsterdam Experience post, you know that this was the time where I had my sign and planned to ask for stories. It felt so good to finally ask the others on the boat if they had a story to tell and be rid of the anxiety! The first story was told by two ...

The Amsterdam Experience

Amsterdam is like Disneyland. I don’t mean that there are rides and Disney characters everywhere. Although, if you find a good enough coffee shop I’m sure they could make that happen.  I mean that the city itself felt like a dream. I have been dying to visit Amsterdam ever since I moved to Europe, but this was a place I did not want to go on my own. Everyone that told me about their experience in Amsterdam shared that it would be much ...

My Mother’s Search for Answers

This story hits close to home. Literally. It’s a story told by my mother about her travels to Italy to discover more about her heritage. My love of travel developed mainly through my parents. Both my mom and dad immigrated to the United States in pursuit of the American dream when they were in their 20’s. They have continued to travel multiple times a year for as long as I can remember.  The majority of my childhood memories take place ...

The Bratislava Experience

About a month ago, the family I work for told me they would be leaving for a week to Canada and I could take that time off. I immediately grabbed my phone and started typing in Budapest has been very high on my bucketlist since I arrived in Europe, and this was the perfect opportunity to check the city off of my list! Since I had a week off, I decided to visit another close by city as well: Bratislava, Slovakia. I booked the ...

Chef Laura’s Tearful Journey

You may have read the recent story by Laura that I heard while I was in Val D’Isere, France. Well, I’m here to tell you another story about a chef interview, told by a different Laura. This Laura was the incredible chef that worked in our chalet for the week. I am not joking when I say this was the most delicious food I have ever eaten! First off, I was not expecting four course meals. Second, she was absolutely amazing and such a sweet ...

Laura and the Collapsing Bridge

Val D’Isere is a beautiful, little village located in the French Alps. I am so lucky to have been able to spend a week there for work. But do you know who is even luckier? Laura Neto. And do you know why she is luckier? Because she gets to spend the entire winter there! Laura works as a Chalet Host for the resort and was assigned to our chalet. I spent a lot of time at the chalet with the kids, which meant I was able to spend time with Laura ...

The French Alps

Follow my blog with Bloglovin My job as a nanny comes with a lot of perks. One of the recent perks was the opportunity to travel to the French Alps for a week with the family I work for. Yes, I would be working, but hey, I’d much rather spend a week working in Val D’Isere than in London! When I first heard about the holiday, my initial thought was that this would be the perfect opportunity to meet others abroad and hear more stories for my ...
