A Home in the Sky: Exploring the Monasteries of Meteora

November 14th, 2014 · Greece · By: Casi

No, I’m not going to pay any attention to the fact that this is the only post I have done this year. Britney’s got my back.

Soooooooo, Greece!

Our next stop after gorging ourselves in Corfu with gyros for every meal (#FTW) was to Kalampaka (also spelled Kalambaka which is really confusing! Pick one, Greece!) We found our way there with a map and (possible) bus times written by a (most likely) drunk person on a napkin. It worked so I mark that one as a win. You’re probably wondering why we would be going to some random city in Greece that you probably haven’t heard of. Well, Kalampaka is a lovely little town at the bottom of this…

A Walk Down Instagram Memory Lane

December 16th, 2013 · And Such, RTW Trippin' · By: Casi

2013 was a big year for my little family (which includes me, Greg, and my two pillow pets, Uni and Fred). 2013 will forever be the year we said, “Peace out societal rules! We’re off to see the world!” Yea, it was scary (like, really scary). But we did it and I wouldn’t trade one minute of it! Not even one of those 30 minutes where I was locked out of our unconditioned Thailand bungalow in my underwear.

I miss traveling.

This world has so much to see.

So, to stop myself from jumping on the next plane out of here I like to go back and look through my Instagram profile. Day dreaming about the beaches of Thailand, the amazing sunsets in Boracay, or drooling over the thought of a gyro in Greece has become a weekly obsession of mine. This week, I thought I would take you along with me down that Instagram memory lane. One glorious 2013 month at a time.


We started off 2013 in San Francisco, CA. After 4 and 1/2 years there, it was hard to say goodbye.

Mini Vacation at the Pink Palace in Corfu, Greece

December 3rd, 2013 · Greece · By: Casi

Vacationing while long term traveling is a must. It’s tiring stuff! Constantly planning, researching, plane trips, long bus rides, and ALL THE WALKING! After a busy 2 weeks in Italy we were ready for a couple days of island relaxation on one of the lesser known Greek Islands, Corfu.

We also needed this relaxation time because we had decided to climb Mount Olympus…less than a week before we actually climbed it. Smart! *insert eery foreshadowing music here* For 3 days we stayed at the Pink Palace, famous for it’s fun parties, beachy goodness, and it’s pink exterior.

Let’s Take A Stroll Through The Canals Of Venice

November 6th, 2013 · Italy · By: Casi

The first question everyone asks us about our trip is, “What was your favorite place?” My #1 is Bali. Greg’s is Chiang Mai. But a very close second for both of us is Venice, Italy. To me, all of Italy was just amazing. But Venice. Ohhhhhhhh Venice. I dream about this city often.

Venice, Italy

Besides the fact that it is a beautiful city built on water with canal lined streets, the buildings are so colorful, the food is SO good, the people are strong and blunt but so nice, the small alleys are so quaint, and don’t get me started on spritzes!

12 Ridiculously Hilarious Leaning Tower of Pisa Fails

October 30th, 2013 · Italy · By: Casi

While we were in Florence we decided to take a day trip to Pisa so we could see that oh so famous leaning tower. This ended up being one of my favorite days of our trip because who doesn’t like watching people fail all day long!? Not sad or painful or mean fails! I’m not sadistic! Geez! Just really really ridiculously hilarious fails, ala Buzzfeed. Ok, some of those Buzzfeed “Biggest Kid Fails Of All Time” do look a little painful, but the fails I’m about to show you from the Leaning Tower of Pisa are more painful to the brain because you just can’t believe how stupid people are willing to look in public for a picture. Including us. Except we nailed it!
