The Art of the Short Stopover | 24 Hours or Less in Barcelona, Strasbourg + Toulouse

Having traveled solo for 9 months around Europe, I have become a bit of a maestra of carefully conducting travel plans in the most budget-friendly way possible.

Rain-Soaked + Solo, A Romantic Weekend in Madrid

A city in the rain is as romantic as you make it. You can walk arm in arm with a loved one through the glistening cobblestones, finding cozy nooks in cafes and whispering into mugs of tea, or you can be chilled, damp and groan that you can’t properly take pictures without getting your camera wet and you wanted to see that lovely park, but what’s the point now.

Day Trip to Moulay Abdessalam + Encounters with Sufism

There are few emotions about places for which adequate single words exist: we have to make awkward piles of words to convey what we felt when watching light fade on an early autumn evening or when encountering a pool of perfectly still water in a clearing.
