Another favourite trip was my weeklong-walk across Hadrian’s Wall, which I did this past fall, and you can read my blog about it here.

here are a select few photos taken from my years of travelling:

this was taken at Lake Matka, just outside of Skopje, Macedonia.

this was taken in Sofia, Bulgaria…that shop name is clearly lost in translation!

this photo was taken in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina…i’m inside the TUNEL, built during the ’92-’95 siege to smuggle food and water to the Bosnians….their president was even forced to use this tunnel during the siege!

this photo was taken in Belgrade, Serbia, at the hostel i was staying at. look at my massive backpack! look at the smile on my face! huzzah for solo-backpacking!!

this photo was taken in Samana, Dominican Republic during the filming of When Women Rule The World…this is an official press photo, hope no one at Channel 4 minds that I use this!

this photo was taken at the Zurich Street Parade in Switzerland…hence the beads and lai’s and the look in my eye!

this photo was taken on the bus from Oxford to London (England). i think this photo says everything about travelling, doesn’t it!

this photo was taken in London, England. i’m skating next to the Natural History Museum off High Street Kensington

this photo was taken sometime past 3am at the Bulgaria-Istanbul border (had to get off the train to get our visas and passport stamps). i’m standing next to my train, the bosphorus express, which took me direct from bucharest, romania to istanbul, turkey….after 19 hours, of course.

this photo was taken in Cambridge, England. i love cycling through places. great way to see them!

speaking of which, here i am cycling through belgrade, serbia!
