I say as I shake my fist comically at the sky, taking cues from every 1980s villain ever. Yes, it was because I was (and still am) sick that I came home a full four days earlier than planned. I stuck out my remaining days for week 4, but was under instructions to NOT dance.… Continue reading “You Win This Time, Herräng Flu. This Time!”
I was fully prepared not to write about my last week until at least this Saturday, if not Sunday, due my tendency to throw myself into whatever I’m doing, especially if it’s the last stretch. However, I now find myself not only with the vicious Herräng flu, but also pink eye. Pink eye! A whole… Continue reading What do you do when you’re sick at Herräng?
It is so difficult to take pictures in Herräng because you are usually too busy being a part of whatever’s happening, you don’t have time to think about your camera! Every week in Herräng ends on Friday with a big themed party. The end of Week 2 was Winter Wonderland. At first when I heard… Continue reading Winter Wonderland, Haunted Hus and Everything Inbetween
I have been so good about posting every week, so when I first got to the famous (or infamous, which ever you prefer) Herräng Dance Camp, I was afraid I was going to have to sheepishly beg forgiveness while I abandoned this blog for volunteering, dance and parties. But lo and behold, I am attempting… Continue reading There Is Nothing Like Herräng
One year ago, my friend Katrina invited me to attend the Amsterdam Lindy Exchange and it was hands down my favorite event of 2012. So, when I learned I was returning to Europe, I knew I had to go back. Reunited with Katrina, Maartje and David (yeah, he finally showed up again), we started off our… Continue reading Through the Canals of Amsterdam
My last night in London was spent dancing into the early morning at the European Blues Invasion‘s Friday dance. I had such a blast! Sean, Lucky, and Elin from Norway were there and we had a little mini-reunion. And I was finally in a comfortable setting where I allowed myself one or two glasses of… Continue reading A Vacation From Vacation
Before I begin, I would like to apologize to my readers for the excess of unforgivable typos that have plagued some of my previous posts. I have not been able to use my laptop, instead restricted to my tablet which has this annoying habit of trying to be helpful and figure out what I am… Continue reading Slight Change of Plans
David and I split on Friday, with me heading back to Bristol and him staying in London. We parted with little hanging around, a hug, a hive-five and a “stay safe”. I am not worried, as he will be seeing his mother in Paris in a week or so, and then we’ll reconvene in Amsterdam… Continue reading Norway Looks Like A Postcard!
It was only a matter of time before David and I openly clashed. Now, before you gasp and read on for the juicy details, no we haven’t fought. But it’s definitely clear we’ve been traveling together for an extended period of time. Little things are starting to come to the surface, like how he takes… Continue reading Magic, Dancing, and Singing in London
About two years ago, I was employed for a summer to teach English in China for two months. This experience was an eye opening, unforgettable experience where I learned a lot about the world and myself. I was one of eleven young people chosen for this program, and while you can imagine it wasn’t always… Continue reading ROAD TRIP! (or, in which we visit Bristol, Bath and Oxford)
