About this blog

So, as I tour around Europe and the world,  my friends have asked me to keep a travel blog so they can see pictures and know what I'm doing on my adventures. This request is likely because I am one of those weirdos that doesn't use Facebook. (update: I do use Facebook now, but I'm still weird)

I am going to go back as far as I can remember and chart my travels, if nothing else, with photos I took in each place. I don't always travel alone, but with some Travel Buddies. Then on my new adventures, I will log realtime and give better descriptions. I am predating all of my posts to when they actually happened, so they will archive in the correct order.

Now I live in Pamplona, Spain and I've been charting my travels in a new subsection called VEN con TMax. It is about the joys of living in Spain, learning the spanish language, interacting with the locals, and of course, traveling around Spain.

Check out my 100th post: This American's Favorites discussing all of my favorite things about traveling.

Travel Buddies

My parents
My two favorite travel partners. I have been so many places with them and it is their adventurous spirit that I have inherited that motivates my wanderlust.

Crazy, spontaneous, and always ready to have a good time. Full of great ideas and quite adventurous. Almost never rests and is constantly researching and recommending the next great place to check out. Plus, fluent in Spanish, French, and English; so that helps.

Upon moving to Spain, I enrolled in a Spanish class to improve my grasp of the language. The teacher thought it best to put the only two North Americans in the class together. Since then, we've been the guiris gemelos (foreigner twins) everywhere we go.

Just an amazing person all around. Top-notch travel partner. We think just alike, have many of the same interests, and like to embrace the culture we're immersing ourselves in. My longest trip to date has been with her (18 days in southern France).

A delight to be around. Always smiling and having fun. A budding photographer (she takes a lot of pics, but not sure if she is actually good at photography, yet :-P). Likes taking weekend trips and is the reason I've discovered many of the destinations closest to me.

If a country starts with the letter "S", I have to go to it with him. He is so well connected, that every time we travel, we just stay with one of his friends who will take us out and show us the city.
