26 Things I’ve Learned While 26

Today is my 27th birthday. Which is wild to me because I can still so vividly remember my birthday last year…sitting in an airport, crying pretty regularly. Yet, that birthday seems so far away, too.

Liverpool

We arrived in Liverpool the night of my twentieth birthday. Our hostel was the YMA Liverpool Hostel and might I say, not on my favorites list for hostels. I don’t prefer paying for wifi, not having my toilet flush, or dealing with somewhat cranky employees. Once we found out wifi had to be bought, we […]

York: the loveliest place in the U.K.

Sorry I didn’t post sooner! Wifi at all the hostels was spotty, so I decided to wait to do these posts to avoid headache. We arrived in York just after lunchtime on Monday, June 17. All 14 of us walked to the hostel ( which we were unaware of its location ) with our large […]
