Well, it has been over a year since my last post, which is absolutely ridiculous! That being said, it's also been over a year since my last trip/adventure (which I think is even more ridiculous). I don't even know where to begin..hmm. The last year, well...for starters, I'm done grad school, handed in my last assignment April 13th.... Continue Reading →
Once again I followed Chris to the destination of his dental school interviews. In November it was New York City and this time it was Phoenix, Arizona. I arrived in the afternoon on Thursday, just before Chris' interview was over and we are leaving tonight so that didn't leave us much time to explore Phoenix... Continue Reading →

I've always loved the Jays and attending games in the summer is one of my favourite things to do in the city.

It is currently my 5th and final night here in beautiful Innsbruck. I can finally blog about the last 5 days and be all caught up in my blog. I arrived in Innsbruck from Munich on May 31. I couldn't quite figure out how to take public transit to my hostel so I decided to... Continue Reading →
I hope you've been able to keep up with the speed of these blogs. Also, apparently I need to proof read my work (sorry mom, there's no spell check on wordpress). Also between me typing on my leyboard and the words appearing on the screen is a ridiculously long lag, so I just type and... Continue Reading →
