On your journey, don't forget to turn around and enjoy the view!
Overlooking Budapest, I witnessed the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen. I'm feeling very alive!
"It's a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what's changed is you." // Nothing's changed and yet everything has changed was the exact sentiment I shared with a friend earlier today. It's been seven days since I left the land across the pond and the reverse culture shock of being home had been off the charts weird. I think it's so much harder coming back this time around because my dreams had finally become reality. It's just a weird feeling having to adjust when I'm such a different person than I was a year ago. This year has been a year of firsts for me. First time I ever curled my hair (shoutout to @katrinsspec), first time I've really tried to branch out in the food department and the first time I've finally spent a year abroad. All of these firsts helped shape me just a bit more and now my pieces don't quite fit the way they used to here. But that's okay, I've always enjoyed zigging while other people zagged. #isitoctoberyet

Tourists and all, I had an (Amster)DAM good time in Europe🌍 #takemeback P.S. Can you spot me?
Guess who finally has her phone back after Czech customs decided to keep it for two weeks?? That's right! Me! Today has been a blur, I started out in Munich, went to Prague to pick up my phone, and I'm ending the day in Vienna. Nothing like spending the day in three different countries!

525,600 minutes. How do you measure, measure a year? Today is my one year anniversary of leaving the States. I finally managed to spend 365 days out of the country I called home for 20 something years. I think it's fitting that I'm celebrating my one year here in Roma. Roma may not be where my love of traveling spurred from but it is the first foreign place that truly felt like a home. There's something here that just clicks. Here, everything makes sense. Even on my worst days I know I can walk down the street and find myself in front of the Trevi or some other super cool old thing. Roma is constantly filled with new surprises and there's always something I've missed. It's a testament to my year. It's been filled with familiar places but also some pretty awesome surprises. It's been a roller coaster like no other and I can't wait to see what the future holds. So, cheers to the next 365 days filled with new adventures, smiles, tears and plenty of laughs. 📸: The best Roman {instagramless} friend a girl could EVER ask for

Seven days. That's all it's been since I've left my Blundstone loving, falafel eating, second home of a country. I've spent seven marvelous days in Europe reuniting with old friends and making new ones. I've beached my little heart out and stumbled across gorgeous new street art. Now, I have seven days left in Europe to say goodbye, to create new memories, to fall in love with all that Europe has to offer over and over again. Seven days. Seven days until this crazy whirlwind of a year-something abroad is over. Everyone tells you how much your life can change in a year, but they never tell you how much it can change in seven days. I'm going to miss this Romance language speaking continent more than I ever thought I would but I'm so excited for my adventure down under. Let's see how much I can change in another seven days... #wanderwithme
I can see why Cesky Kumlov is so often called the most picturesque town in Europe! 😍 I am loving every second of this crazy, beautiful life. ❤️
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight💃 // My time in Faro has been amazeballs to say the least. I'm not ready to say goodbye to this place tomorrow. Can I just make Portugal my next home? #nevercominghome 📸: @clairelwaters27
"Alien Invasion". While on the subject of fireworks, I decided to have some fun and try zooming my lens during the exposure. Predictably, most of these came out a zig-zaggy mess, but this one looks a bit haunting to me. It looks like ethereal aliens pouring down from the sky, onto the poor unsuspecting boaters trying to enjoy a fireworks show... Amazing change in mood with just a flick of the wrist! . . #fireworks #fireworkslovers #alieninvasion #abstract #zoomexposure #exposurezoom #exposurezooming #nightphotography #picoftheday #photooftheday #Vancouver #vancity #604now #beautifulbc #BurrardBridge #viewfrombridge #olympuscamera #omd #getolympus #olympusep1 #m43movement #GoBewander #roamingnanny #amazeshots
