CZECH REPUBLIC | Tue, 26 Apr 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [551]

I wish I had more to say about Prague, but I just don't. After Bulgaria and the Baltics, Prague did not have very much of an Eastern European feel to it. It just felt like a big, modern, Western European capital. It was beautiful and it lived up to its ... Read more >

Riga Reflections and the Numbers from the Baltics

LATVIA | Tue, 12 Apr 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [472]

IRELAND | Tue, 16 Feb 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [507]

I've struggled with what to write about the UK and Dublin. I had a great time, but the problem is that they felt too familiar to say much about them. My muse is a combination of strangeness, solitude, self-reliance, and idle time. There wasn't enough ... Read more >
