This blog started as a way to document my study abroad experience, and it used to be located at erintravelseurope.tumblr.com. Then one day, I realized I wanted to keep blogging about travel, and Europe isn’t the only place I’m going. So this is my site now.
Anyway. I’m a 23-year-old paralegal who likes reading on the train, ballet dancing, color-coded spreadsheets, and Broadway musicals. And traveling, of course. Here’s where I’ve been:
When I was younger, my family and I used to do a lot of road trips. We would go to national parks and historic monuments. The United States is vast and diverse, and there are many beautiful places. Plenty of places that are boring too. I would like to note that the “amber waves of grain” are overrated, having driven through them a number of times. I haven’t blogged about most of these places, because we went when I was young, or they were trips for mock trial tournaments. Some of my favorite places, in no particular order: Crater Lake (OR), Chicago (IL), Grand Canyon (AZ), Custer’s Last Stand (MT), San Francisco (CA), Carlsbad Caverns (NM), the Rocky Mountains (CO), Washington DC, the White Sand Dunes (NM), the coastline of Maine, Mesa Verde (CO), Boston’s North End (MA), and Lake Powell (UT/AZ).
The first time I went to Europe was during study abroad, when I lived in Copenhagen for four months. I also lived in France for two months while completing a research project. I love so many places in Europe, and I have so many cities and historical sites that I still want to come back and see.
I’ve started working my way through Asia, starting with Japan and then moving on to China and Seoul. I have a number of places I want to visit in the rest of the world, so I’ll continue to update this map as I work my way down my list.
