Well the time has come for my Easter break. WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO

I will be going M.I.A for three weeks, beginning with an Avett Brother’s concert, and then continuing on to Ireland, Spain, and Hungary.

This past weekend I had practice going M.I.A. during the IFSA Butler Adventure Weekend in Wales. I had so much fun hanging with friends, and I even mountain biked! It was quite beautiful, even when I could barely pedal up the mountain’s 2nd switchback (as seen in the picture).

Over the weekend I had limited access to wifi, thus I felt like I kind of earned the title of M.I.A. I feel like it helped me practice for my upcoming three weeks of traveling.In my mind, I will soon be entirely off the radar. A traveler of Europe. A blazer of trails. Though in reality my M.I.A. status is totally not real because I will have wifi at every place I’ll be staying at, I have my international calling card so I can call my parents every day, and I will be with friends the entire time so I will never technically be alone.

With that said, I’M GOING M.I.A. FOR THREE WEEKS!!!!

I will try to take many pictures and remember all of the embarrassing things that happen to me so I can write about them on here for the three people that actually read my blog (shout out to mom, dad, and boyfriend).

Well this is me saying “see ya later!” I will be back oh so soon, and hopefully with my suitcase, passport, and dignity still in hand.

Until next time,


“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from in new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
