We had dinner with some friends of ours visiting from France the other day. It was so much fun see them again and try and work through those language barriers. The difference in language has never stopped us from having fun conversations before, and it's just as much of an adventure every time.
When I was planning my trip to Norway, Bergen was the city that kept coming up over and over again. I saw nothing but beautiful pictures and read so many article dubbing a "fairytale city". I was sold, and after a little research I decided to book a train ticket from Oslo to Bergen.
The train ride was hands down the most gorgeous train journey I've ever experienced. Even though it was 8 hours, it actually went pretty quickly because everything I saw out the window was absolutely picturesque. Like most trains in Europe, they advertise wi-fi but it's definitely not dependable - so make sure to bring a book and music!
All you have to do is look through my living room window or stand in the doorway to know that I have a thing for London. The UK in general, actually. London is my favorite major city in the world. I love the people, the vast range of culture, the incredibly rich history, and generally everything about it. I am an anglophile through and through.
I haven't been everywhere - yet - and I'm by no means a real travel blogger since I still spend the majority of my time and money in the same 100 square miles, but travel has always been a part of my life and I love it. I'm not too bad at finding my way around new places, so I thought it would be fun to do some little mini-guides to places I've been and what I enjoyed and would recommend.
