— 2018 —
home again for the holidays. it always feels simultaneously familiar, fleeting, and foreign.
i traveled solo for the first time to amsterdam back in early july.
amsterdam wasn't on my life's list of destinations (somehow). but after going through a long list of places - some beachy, some big, some far - it came down to 4 things: a place i could safely roam around, interesting/iconic museums, a <12 hour flight, affordability.
three years ago, i started a personal tradition of backpacking for a few days on and around my birthday. this year, we went to franklin pass at sequoia national park and camped out at franklin lake.
