this modern art in the park bums me out! Be a lil more optimistic! Geez!
Hmmmmm decided to screw chronological order and post whatever I think looks nice, no one’s paying that much attention anyways!!! Who cares where I actually am in the world! (Answer: currently on the toilet.) Also screw long captions or words at all from here on out we communicating in EMOJIS ONLY❗️❗️❗️
Today is the shortest day of the year and I still haven’t posted about the last 2.5 MONTHS of my trip so I’m picking up where I left off! Scotland in August! Here’s Poppy looking cute walking towards a cute house what a good time.
(Over a month behind on photos now! It’s fine! Everything’s fine!) After one full day in London I took a night bus up to Glasgow! Met up with @ashinaflash15 at the bus station then picked @po0psie up at the airport and then we started our 6 day North Coast 500 drive!!! Our first stop was to see the Kelpies, because even though I lived in Glasgow for 5 months last year I still hadn’t seen these great beasts!!
4th time to London and finally made it to the motherfrickin GLOBE THEATRE!!! We saw Emilia, a play with an all-female cast about the woman who may be the inspiration for Shakespeare’s “dark lady”/possibly used her work in his plays. It made me cry and I looked around and saw so many women crying too and I could easily watch it again and again and again.
Sat on the floor of a bus for 2.5 hours because everyone and their mother wants to visit Rila Monastery. Also I took my shorts off in the parking lot of this UNESCO World Heritage Site (lol) to change into jeans because the Lord doesn’t like your knees!!
Plovdiv had some cool street art 💕
For someone who claims to not be a cat person I sure do have a lot of cute cat pics on my phone 🤔
who is marna?? does she remember???
Varna had a cool secondhand English bookshop and a cool park to read those books in ✨ (I’m almost a full month behind on photos so bear with me while I play catch up)
I haven’t posted about Bulgaria yet but screw chronological order I’m in London! #itscominghome
here’s me by the black sea ⛵️
Driving the Transfagarasan was just as scary and beautiful as you’d except (also we saw a BEAR) 🐻
Sibiu was beautiful and has more gelato places squished on one street than I thought humanly possible.
Brasovian sunsets ☀️
Birbs & Brasov
There aren’t many Lenin statues left in the world but I’ve seen two of them! One in Tiraspol and the other in Chernobyl 💥
One of the cool things to do in Moldova is visit Tiraspol - the capital of Transnistria, a self-proclaimed country that is not recognized by any UN member. People told me horror stories about visit the USSR-loving nation (there’s a hammer and sickle on their flag!). I was told that they would give Americans a hard time or ask for money at the border or security wouldn’t let me take photos of the Lenin statue, but nah, nothing of the sort happened. The only “tough” part is that everything is in Russian so it’s a little difficult getting around - but that’s my own fault for not knowing Russian.
Did a wine tour and tasting at @cricova_winery today! They have over 120k of underground labyrinths where they bottle and store the wine. They also had a collection of really old bottles which were impressive simply because of all that dust. TBH i don’t know much about wine all I could think about was that scene in The Parent Trap where Nick takes Natasha Richardson down to the wine cellar to show her he kept the wine they drank at their first wedding!!!
Maybe I’ve just been very lucky but the past few days have consisted of the friendliest people and the prettiest of places ✨
I know counting countries is ~dumb~ and doesn’t really ~mean~ anything because borders change all the time and blah blah blah but I think it’s really nifty that I’ve visited as many countries as my age! #22
Cluj is beautiful and I’ve only spent one day in this country so it might be too soon to say I love Romania but MAN do I love Romania 🇷🇴
