Hostel Horror Stories

Hostel Horror Stories

As a solo female traveler, I’ve had so many people ask me about hostel horror stories. I get it, sharing a room with complete strangers sounds terrifying. For the most part, it’s completely fine. I have no issues with it and I actually quite enjoy […]

Not All Pretty Places Are Peaceful | Auschwitz |

Not All Pretty Places Are Peaceful | Auschwitz |

When I first arrived in Krakow, I knew only one thing that I HAD to see: Auschwitz ┬áConcentration Camp. It sounds a bit deranged, to go to such a place of evil, but I soon realized I was one of many who wanted to see […]
