a month in QT

a month in QT

Posted from Queenstown Hill, Otago, New Zealand. “It’s share-ee,” I announciate for the two thousandth time. Some battles are not worth the fight. My name is now “Shiri.” And somehow I have begun to speak in British phrases, which is understandable considering how many poms are here, but also kind of befuddling considering I’m so far […]

third time’s the charm

third time’s the charm

Posted from Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand. No plan. None. I headed into summer with a completely obscure idea of what winter would bring. What would happen to me now after the freedom of eight glorious months of worldwide travel? How could anything compare to the blissful days of wanderlust and zero obligation? Money was running […]

Vector Festival and packing

Vector Festival and packing

Posted from Saint-Rémy, Burgandy, France. Sometimes I think I’m a work-a-holic. I know there’s a few people right now laughing, perhaps gfawing at this idea, seeing as I’ve been traveling for six months, but let me explain.

London’s calling

London’s calling

Posted from London, England, United Kingdom. The last time I was in London I was 23-years-old and was traveling with my mom and grandma. So as I headed toward ‘the big smoke’ I knew this experience was going to be slightly different, mostly because I’m older, I’m staying with friends and I don’t have mom’s […]

The rain of Vang Vieng

The rain of Vang Vieng

Posted from Vang Vieng, Vientiane, Laos. It was bound to happen. I mean, it happened in Vietnam, so I suppose it was only a matter of time before the reality of weather patterns and mountain-induced cloud formation caused the sky to rain on my parade. And so rain it did – from the moment I […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
