I have been in Stephen's hometown in Northern Ireland since Tuesday night.
We just cant seem to get enough of the awesomeness that is sitting around at an airport.
But it has been great to catch up with the family, lounge around, and take in the country views.
We return to Scotland tonight,
so while I am up in the air..
here are some super awesome ladies to keep you company.
I thought I traveled a lot,
and then I met Rachael and she put my traveling ways to shame.
She left orange county (like me!) and moved to Amsterdam.
She is engaged to a handsome Dutchman and shares her amazing trips on her blog.
Go live vicariously through her,
its worth it.
"Hello Across the Pond readers! I'm Rachael from Let's Be Adventurers. As a native of sunny Southern California, I decided to be a bit crazy and study abroad in snowy Finland which turned out to be some of the best months of my life. Soon after, I took the plunge and went to Graduate student in Amsterdam, Holland. Four years down the road, I am still living the expat life in Amsterdam and travel around with my Dutch guy in pursuit of doing some of the craziest travel experiences on the planet. Put me on a beach, next to a canal or on a plane anywhere and I'm one smitten girl. Follow us along over at Let's Be Adventurers and see where this travel bug takes us next!"
Want to gaze longingly at the most beautiful photos ever?
Awesome, because Justine from Viva la Jussie's blog is FULL of her stunning photos.
She has such a talent for photography and is an incredible writer..
Her blog is easy to fall in love with.
" Hi there! I'm Justine, an almost-22-year old living in the wonderful state known as the garden. Not so long ago I fell in love with photography. And I must admit, it's pretty much an unhealthy addiction. Even more recently I made the most important decision in my life, thus far, and began following a lifelong dream to become a teacher. Viva la Jussie is where I come to spill my heart out, share my photo obsession, document my trials and tribulations, and oh yes show off my really cute dogs. Did I mention my adorable dogs? Let's not forget my sweet man candy, either. Come and follow along for the ride, won't you? "
I don't think I could say enough nice things about Kristie...
her life is eerily similar to mine..
and her stories..
they make their way to the deepest part of your soul..
leaving you heartbroken, hopeful, and just in awe at what an amazing woman she is.
This post here still renders me speechless.
If you are wanting a blog of quality..
then stop by Kristie Was Here,
days I'm successful and other days I'm annoyingly pretentious. "
