I’m Back From Europe: A Brief Recap

I’m Back From Europe: A Brief Recap

It's been a week since I've landed back on US soil. And it's taken me this long to sit down and start writing about it. Mostly because I don't know where to start. It's daunting to summarize what I saw, what I did, and what I've learned during those 97…

Iceland Smells Like Farts

Iceland Smells Like Farts

Or at least that's what the guys kept saying. I'm a lady, and for all I know farts smell like roses and unicorn hugs, duh. But really. Iceland smelled like a room full of forgotten hard boiled eggs that have been sitting in a pool of well water from the…
