I spent my Thanksgiving in Ireland this year. I know, kind of odd celebrating an American holiday on non-American soil. The bf had tons of finals and papers due so I decided to be nice and fly over there for the holiday. To be honest, I didn’t mind very much because I was looking forward […]


Safe Travels

25Nov09

For those of us lucky (unlucky?) enough to not have to organize an orphan Thanksgiving, today’s going to be one of the most intense traveling experiences of the year.
