Peace That Surpasses Understanding: A Poop Story

Yes. A poop story. Y'all. I waited five years to tell this story. Five years to share about an incomprehensible peace that I experienced on a solo trip to Barcelona in May 2017. Literally, a peace in God that surpassed my understanding. And I waited because, to tell it would mean talking about poop. One …

Is Croatia on Your Bucket List? 5 Reasons You Must Visit

Croatia is one of those up-and-coming countries. Gaining popularity, but still not as touristed (yup, it’s a word) as Italy and other nearby European nations. At least, not yet. And that, my friends, is why I’m urging you to add Croatia to your travel bucket list ASAP if it’s not already penciled in. Better yet, …

Why My Travel Personality Isn’t for Everyone

Solo travel is a polarizing topic. You've either done it / want to do it / applaud folks who do. OR, you think they're crazy. And if you're in the latter group, I'm not mad. In fact, I think it does take some level of crazy to embark on a trip by yourself. Especially an …

Best Things About European Christmas Markets

It may not be Christmas when you're reading this, but it's never a bad time to talk European Christmas markets. When a $434 roundtrip flight to Brussels popped up in my inbox (thanks to Scott’s Cheap Flights) I could not pass it up. Initially, (to save up more moolah) I wanted to book the latest …

When God Gives You Abundantly More: A 2018 Recap

2018 exceeded my expectations. After three solo trips to Europe in 2017, I hoped to at least match that level of travel in 2018. And God gave me MORE. He went beyond my dreams. I’m learning, more and more, He tends to do that when we surrender to Him. Now, God knows I love travel …

My 2018 Bucket List

Where to next? I get that question a lot, especially after traveling solo to Europe three times in 2017. And, to be honest, I actually already have three trips scheduled between now and mid-March. That’s right. I’m not wasting any time in 2018. But the short answer? San Francisco, mid-January. Back in November, I snagged …
