Switzerland

I’ve officially reached that point in my trip where I have no money. What better place to be broke in Europe than in Switzerland, right? Wrong. Switzerland is SO expensive. Although the US dollar and the Swiss Franc are very similar, prices for regular goods are much more expensive in Switzerland. For example, I went…

Ireland, The Actual Motherland

Before visiting Ireland, I knew to expect two things. One, that the people were going to be among the nicest we’ve met on this trip and two, copious amounts of alcohol will be involved.
