Hello world

I’m kicking off my travel blog! I’ve played around with the idea of starting one for a while. With a 5 week trip to Europe fast approaching, it seems like there is no better time than the present.

Overall, I’m not sure what direction this blog will go. At this early stage, I’m thinking location-specific trip planning advice, as well as more general thoughts. I really enjoy doing massive amounts of research on destinations in the lead up to a new trip, planning how I can get the most out of it.

A primary motivation is my desire to share what I’ve learned from various frustrations I’ve run into when planning trips (such as finding good budget options to circumvent the problem of closed metros in Madrid for early morning flights), as well as sharing my favorite places I’ve visited, both on and off the beaten track.

So we’ll see where this takes me — see you soon!
