New World, Old Names

Dear Reader, Do you prefer New England or old, European England? How about Scotland, are you more attached to the one in the UK or Nova Scotia in Canada? I always thought it was kind of strange that New England and Nova Scotia were named as such. Although I understand the historical significance around the... Continue Reading →

Jet Lagging Behind

Dear Reader, I am a morning creature (see my post about it here). I awake from sleep naturally every morning before 7am, as if my body were simply just deciding that it has had enough sleep. I enjoy the mornings and find myself to be at my most productive before 10am. In fact, after I... Continue Reading →

Saturday Solitude

Girl on a Train

Faraway Friends

Well Wishes

Dear Reader, I am immediately off to another adventure! Straight from Iceland I am now heading to Glasgow, Scotland.
