notes on traveling

It is currently 11:13 pm in Krakow, Poland.

And goddamn, I am TIRED.

But knowing that I haven’t posted in a while – and wasn’t planning to for at least another week – left a little itch in my heart. (And my knees, because apparently dry skin and denim chafing brings about a wild rash haha who know, amirite?)

So I’m bringing you my completely official and totally helpful notes on my travels across Eastern Europe so far:

_glossier balm dot com is my new fave. My lips have been nonstop chapped if it weren’t for this baby. And like?? The first few times I used this it was decidedly unimpressive; I couldn’t tell a difference between using my normal Burt’s Bees and this but bringing it on this trip was a freakin’ gamechanger. I’m glad I gave it another shot.

_why didn’t I bring my smaller earphones? 

_why are the doors so heavy in Poland (literally could NOT even open a door of a restaurant)

_cute boys a b o u n d

_I REALLY wish I spoke another language. Going through different countries with different national languages all at once is a little overwhelming, even more so when you’re hungry and can’t find a menu in English. Although Polish and Hungarian are not languages I could have learned in school, it makes me really think about the fact that I can only speak and understand English.

_for all the luggage I brought, another pair of pants would have been nice. I know the rash on my knees was definitely from a combination of the harsh wind (what I consider harsh wind, coming from sunny California) and my jeans, but I can’t believe I’m spending three weeks in Europe with two pairs of mom jeans. 

_thank GOD for portable chargers 

_never knew how much I shouted LOOK AT ME I’M A TOURIST

_this is the first time I haven’t packed so much unnecessary shit and I’m feeling pretty good about that

Hopefully I’ll have something to post tomorrow as I’ll definitely be posting a video of my travels, it’s just a matter of when. I hope all of you are having wonderful weekends!

(Yeah, I sat here for two minutes trying to think of cool, relevant q’s to ask you but I’m dead so whatever. We’ll talk soon, don’t worry.)
