I haven’t written for a while, probably too long, but I recently felt the need to commit some thoughts to paper, or electronic file at least.
With all of the upheaval and division we hear about these days it seems easy to see ... Read more >

GERMANY | Sun, 19 Jun 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views 
Something reminiscent of ashes brushed across my face and landed in my hair as I approached the entrance to Dachau Concentration Camp. They were floating around everywhere, creating a disorienting haze in the unseasonably brilliant early spring sun. ... Read more >

GERMANY | Sun, 5 Jun 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views 
My last days in Germany found me in Frankfurt am Main, a city I had never visited despite having passed through so many times before, both by plane and train. I am not the only traveler who has been skipping it. Out of the millions of people who transit ... Read more >

CROATIA | Thu, 19 May 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views  | Comments 
Trundling through the Austrian Alps, I was excited to finally see Croatia, a country that had been calling to me for some time, even before the sabbatical began to take shape. The pleasure of solo travel had worn thin in the preceding ... Read more >

Munich’s lesson for me was this: I need people.
I know it’s obvious, and everybody says it, and I have even said it. I have known it to be one of those universal truths, but I haven’t really always believed it, not deep down on a ... Read more >

Leipzig was planned as a time for me to rest and reacquaint myself with Germany, but it had more in store for me than just that.
My first ever solo flight was when I went to Germany for my exchange student year more than ... Read more >

CZECH REPUBLIC | Tue, 26 Apr 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views 
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 >

LATVIA | Tue, 12 Apr 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views 
I usually have an impression of a place before arrival, and that often predetermines whether I will like it. The impression may or may not be based on anything very substantial. Perhaps I have tucked away a vague memory of a news report or a photograph, ... Read more >

ESTONIA | Sat, 9 Apr 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views 
It's time for a confession: I usually dread going to new places.
How is that possible in a person with wanderlust , in a person whose driving force is to experience the unknown? I've been honest about the fears I've had traveling solo, but this is ... Read more >

Leaving Norway on an Aurora High
My goal in going to Norway was realized in the end - I saw the northern lights!!! Going on guided light chases will certainly wreck your budget (see below), but it was totally worth it. You have to be able to get ... Read more >

NORWAY | Sun, 27 Mar 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views  | Comments 
March’s full moon accompanied me on the last leg of my arrival in Norway, hovering just over the wing of the plane from Oslo to Tromsø and giving me my first view of the country. In the south, there was only patchy snow on the watery land, ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 17 Jan 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views  | Comments 
I wanted to write earlier, but this week has been an emotional roller coaster, and I could not bring myself to put much into words. Who knew that following a dream could make one so sad, afraid, anxious, guilty, and full of self-doubt? I did not expect ... Read more >

USA | Fri, 12 Jun 2015 | By gingerninja | Views 
I’m an introvert.
I love time alone with my thoughts; in fact I need time alone to recharge myself. I know people who dread the idea of an evening or weekend in their own company. I seek it out.
Don’t get me ... Read more >

I realise this is stating the obvious, but Holland is flat. Very. There is also rather a lot of water. Flying from Birmingham to Schiphol is the only time I have ever really listened to the stewardess' advice about life jackets because I could see that ... Read more >

CANADA | Mon, 29 Dec 2014 | By goingsolo | Views 
I love lone traveling because you can be anyone and no one at the same time. Anonymity is a beautiful but lonely state of being. Your past is irrelevant, your future is tenuous. You live on the edge, not knowing what the future holds, feeling anxious ... Read more >

Whereas Friday was full of Americans, Saturday was not.
I was running out shampoo and conditioner, so I decided that I should go get some more. Since shopping by myself in the Mdina was still a frightening prospect (so much noise and so many ... Read more >
