Luggage and camping gear for 10 months of living in France and traveling around


Long before the travel exhaustion set in


So efficient


Chocolate covered licorice! I’ve always had my suspicions that Iceland was an insane place and now I know for sure. Also, the two Icelandic movies I watched on the plane didn’t help. .


Long after travel exhaustion sets in – chilly wait at Paris train station


Train station chocolate mousse – one of the single greatest things I’ve ever tasted. Maybe I’ll head back there for a special occasional.


The warmest, quietest, most blissful train ride to date
