Thrifted Thursdays: 04.06.17

Today was maybe the most “Spring-like” day we’ve had since the season officially began. (Never mind all the Bays currently packed with ice and the absolute madness that is the amount of snow that fell out in Central NL recently and the fact most of the province probably looks like an ice planet.) One could dart from the house to the shed without a jacket … Continue reading Thrifted Thursdays: 04.06.17

My clothes are in the laundry … Continue reading Warning: The Travel Bug may have Side Effects.

Backpacking & Footwear Problems.

This is by no means a complaint–I absolutely LOVE traveling with just a single backpack. (Remind me to write a post on how problematic a suitcase would have been getting to our accommodations in Cinque Terre).  My biggest struggle when packing my backpack revolves around footwear.  You basically only get to bring a single pair of shoes. That’s it. ONE pair. I usually have room … Continue reading Backpacking & Footwear Problems.
