In honor of the female Russian astronauts, I gave my hair and makeup team the night off;) I really did bust my ass. The granny cart got jammed in a crack on the curb and when it fell suddenly, I tumbled right on top of it. My backpack even flew over my head. Ha! I’m a mess. So yes, we’re... Read More

Just When You Thought … Things Couldn’t Get Any Worse

kat hurley, can't get any worse, dreambomb
It can’t get any worse than this–I always find myself getting nervous when I have that feeling. “This is a test, this is only a test …”┬áplays in my mind. I’ve come to expect that when I fear things couldn’t get any worse, my definition of “worse” is being challenged, like whoa. I suppose it’s true. My “worst” is still... Read More

There was no sign or friendly... Read More

We’ve just been smiling since we stepped off the plane. PS … I can’t say the word foliage and not think of the fall Whine About... Read More

Not Just Another Tour

Today we had our last official tour in Old Town Dubrovnik. We learned all sorts of facts about the construction, reconstruction and restoration of the town walls after battles, sieges and numerous earthquakes. I think the only reason Elisa was able to hold on during this tour was the interwoven stories our guide incorporated into her spiel, that and the... Read More

Where in the World is Effin Montenegro?

We found out where Montenegro is yesterday, but boy had you offered me a million dollars the day prior, I couldn’t have told you. After this trip and all these historical tours, I joked with Elisa, come the holidays my Trivial Pursuit game might be worth a pie piece or two;) I dragged Elisa on a tiny tour bus, just... Read More
