This Cute Festival and Thouhts on The French

Apparently there’s this huge old car festival here this weekend. The two french guys staying in this airbnb with me came here with this car of theirs-it’s got two steering wheels and two engines and is kinda crazy but super cool. We couldn’t communicate all that well (we’re talk’n pantomiming shit lol) but I told…

This amazing town in Portugal 

​ ​​ I’m so in love with this little food truck. Watch it struggle up the hill lol ​​ I laughed at this when I came across it. Dogs humping always cracks me up. But when I realized the little scrappy one was jumping a 3-legged one, I about died. I love how she just…

Hitching in Portugal as a woman. 

Today I got picked up by this couple on the side of the road. Right after playing with that homeless dog (see my last post), I realized I hadn’t been paying attention. I love to go for runs and bike rides and get lost and then try to find my way back based on intuition…

This Spanish town 

         The afternoon:  I stayed inside all day yesterday except to eat. After exhausting myself for days on end, I got to the point where I heard myself say “oh great. Another fucking pretty crutch. Whoopeeee.” I don’t like that I have this attitude! But I’m used to spending longer periods of time…

Valencia, Spain: I’m a really bad tourist 

   I stayed inside all day yesterday except to eat. After exhausting myself for days on end, I got to the point where I heard myself say “oh great. Another fucking pretty crutch. Whoopeeee.” I don’t like that I have this attitude! But I’m used to spending longer periods of time in a few places…

Tinder girl in Europe 

My tinder date took this last night right before we realized this wasn’t going anywhere. I was tired and not really looking to hook up, though I’m always open to the idea. But I just wasn’t feeling it with this dude. And he was wearing a superman shirt. I’ve noticed a lot of men over…

I went topless today 

So I did this (along with a lot of other European strangers) in Costa Blanca. Spain and it felt great! Old men and teenage boys didn’t stare at me either. Maybe cuz they don’t both fear and fetishize women’s boobs over here the way we do in America. Moms hang out topless in front of…

The most bizarre day in northern Spain 

Here’s what happened today as it happened (and as I wrote it):    Look who’s got her own scooter!  Inspired by yesterday’s tinder date, I decide to rent my own and head north. I have no plan and I like it that way. The guys at the shop said “do you need two helmets?” I…

Tinder date-Barcelona style 

​​ I went on a tinder date today with a super sweet German guy who’s lived in Barcelona for like 13 years. He picked me up on his scooter and showed me all over the city. I spoke with him all of three minutes on tinder before getting on a scooter with him but My…
