These days the easiest way to capture a moment on the road is to quickly reach for your smart phone, get snap happy, and make a quick upload to one of your social media channels to share with friends. And while I love my cameras for capturing more planned creative moments, there’s no denying that it is much simpler and easier to reach for your phone for those ‘on-the-go’ moments.

But sharing has become such an integral part of our lives – sharing photos, videos, status updates, tweets, etc. – that in today’s digital world, it has become a little tricky to savour some moments for yourself. So that’s why when I heard about the new Trippix App, which creates your travel photo book for you in minutes, I knew I had to share it with WOW readers.

I’m talking about travel photo books because I believe they’re better than any souvenir and a much more personal way to reminisce on your travels. Also, they’ve just become easier than ever to create. Here’s how simple it is in today’s digital world:

trippix app

1. Download the TripPix App

Pretty simple, yeah? Head to the App store and search for “Trippix”. Click download.

2. Start selecting your Photos

I chose to create my photo book around my trip to New York City earlier this year. I love this city so much as it always makes me feel alive and refreshed with new ideas. I also had the best time on this particular trip as I met up with heaps of readers in Bryant Park and continued to spend the entire day with some of them – eating Shake Shack in Times Square for a yummy greasy lunch, eating froyo for lunch dessert (that really should be a thing), and taking loads of photos/videos around the city, just having a blast!

3. Select What Kind of Trip you Took

Being that I chose to create my book on NYC, I obviously didn’t select a beach retreat or grand adventure…. although, it was pretty jolly grand!

trippix app trippix 4. Selections (Rainbows & Unicorns)

The next step is to select a bunch of different pieces of information on your trip – what was the weather like? How did you get around town… (obviously via unicorn)!? And what did you see, do and eat!?


5. Et Voila!

Hey presto! Quicker than you can say Voldemort without fear of the repercussions, you’ve finished! Once you’ve made your order, the photo book arrives on your doorstep. Toooooo easy!

    I would have to say my favorite travel memory would be when I took a visit to New York City, NY this past December/January with my sister and dad. We were going to be in New York over New Years Eve and thought that we would watch the ball drop in Times Square. Having done this already two years prior, we knew the dos and don’ts of everything. My dad was very anti wanting to do this and my sister and I wanted to get closer to the performing acts and ball from when we went before. My dad, being the nice man he is, gave in and let us do it. So we stood out there for 12 hours in the FREEZING cold, so cold we could not feel our own body parts. I forgot that I had toes. As brutal as that might sound, just sitting on the dirty New York ground formed many new memories. We made friends with two girls that were by us. One being from Washington D.C and was dragged here by her friend from Australia. I am from Iowa, so getting to meet anyone is really exciting itself. We became really good friends with these two girls and ended up not getting their contact information. We just separated ways after midnight. TWO days later my family and I were walking on the Brooklyn Bridge and we saw the same two girls. Now we all know New York is a BIG place with a high population and many tourists so to run into these girls and to end up going there at the same time blew our minds. This made it clear that we needed to exchange contact information, so we did and ended up having lunch with them and now we keep in contact and know that we always have a friend to see whenever we go to DC or Australia.

    My favorite trip ever was when I went to the Semana penninsula in Dominica Republic. We landed at an airport 4 hours away from Semana and rented a car to drive across Dominca Republic. The drive was amazing in itself. We stayed in a villa near a little town that wasn’t touristy at all. When we walked through the town people stared because they were not used to seeing white people (my entire family is very pale). I absolutly loved it because I got to see the true culture of Dominica Republic not just the touristy stuff. My favorite memory was when my family and I got lost on a little dirt road looking for a “secret” beach a local told us about. We were so lost, but we finally saw a little food stand on the side of the road and stopped to ask for directions. The family that ran the food stand ended up inviting us onto their porch for homemade hot chocolate and we talked for 2 hours straight! By the time we left it was to late to go to the beach anyways. It was a wonderful trip I will never forget!

    My favorite trip ever was when I went to Europe and spent my summer in Germany with my best friend. I went over to visit my friend who was a foreign exchange student from high school and we had the best time ever. We went to Amsterdam, Berlin and a bunch of little villages in Germany. I fell in love with the country, the culture and the people. Recently my best friend got diagnosed with a brain tumor this past Easter so hopefully she will be able to have surgery again and I will be traveling to Germany to see her for that. I love the country and I love the people. I could not ask for a better combination.

    If I must choose, my favorite trip has to be my first trip to South Africa. My mother’s friend had set up a dinner party so that we could meet her granddaughter, Laura.
    Laura was graduating college and wanted to go on safari in South Africa, but no one wanted to join her. What?!?!
    I told her I’d be her travel companion, and two months later we were on our way. It ended up being the start of a beautiful friendship and rekindled the love I have for travel with a vengeance. I had been blessed to travel pretty extensively, but this trip was the spark I needed to make travel a priority in my life. It was so refreshing to be out of my element again and to experience a different culture. I witnessed a lion kill on my first safari, ate unusual food, drank wine at a four hundred year old vineyard in Stellenbosch and had the most amazing time in Cape Town.
    It was this adventure that motivated me to live in the moment, indulge my wanderlust and follow my nomadic heart. In the past three years I’ve been to the Dominican Republic, England, returned to South Africa, got engaged in Ireland and will be heading to New Zealand in October to elope. There is no end in sight, either. South Africa was where I had my epiphany and that is why it will always have a piece of my heart.

    it’s difficult to choose only one trip, but I would say the one I did in Kenya.
    I was determined to sleep in the savanna inside a tent to have the chance to see again a sky with no lights disturbing it and listening the silence of the place.

    I was SOOOO wrong 🙂
    I spent the whole night thinking that the lion roar I have heard, it was probably behind my tent, ready to have a night snack 🙂
    And the elephant trumpeting echoed throughout in the savanna means that he was upset and might destroy my camp in a few steps.

    Then I found a scorpion in my shoes and I heard spiders the whole night.

    Basically I spent the night petrified in my sleeping bag the whole night, completely unprepared to the experience.
    When I woke up I was so tired, but now I can laugh about how stupid I was. My guide told me that in the savanna you could hear animal calls even 40km away far from them. :)))

    My favorite trip so far is when we flew to London last fall to surprise my mother-in-law for her 70th birthday. My father-in-law took her there as her birthday present and asked if we would fly over and surprise her during her trip, on her actually birthday. My husband and I flew over a few days early and spend the first part of our trip sneaking around London so we wouldn’t accidentally run into them. To help with our hiding, we decided to visit a castle outside of the city to decrease our chances of a run in. At the last minute we found Hever Castle. We had a fun adventure taking the train out to Kent and then getting a taxi (which apparently there were only 2 on duty the whole day in this town). It was the best day of any vacation that I ever had, ever aspect of it was magical.

    My favorite trip I ever took was the one I did solo. I had been living abroad in Israel at the time, and decided to venture to Edinburgh for a week. I thought about exploring on my own, then opted for a group tour. I met two fun guys from Australia and we hit it off. By the end of the day, we were kicking it on Calton Hill, watching the sunset, and discussing all of our travels and life up until that point. It pushed me outside of my comfort zone so much, and it was the day I realized I’d been bitten by the bug!

    August 12, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    My favorite trip is definitely New Zealand.
    I’ve been working there as an Au Pair and till today I don’t even regret it because I can call this country my second home with all his beauty!

    While my most recent trip is one of my absolute favorites, I have to go back a few years for this one. While I was in law school I decided I wanted to intern in international business law. Unfortunately internships are a little hard to come by in that field so I struck out finding one here in the US. That was when I found out about an internship program in Seoul, South Korea. I signed up and sent in a deposit the next day. I knew nothing about Seoul or Korean culture. My mom asked me if I even knew what they ate in Korea when I told her and my answer was just “ummm…”. I spent about a month and a half in Seoul and had the most amazing experience. Only two people in my office spoke English so the workdays were always interesting, especially since I only knew about 3 words of Korean. When I wasn’t researching legal issues I was teaching English with my co-intern.

    Now my other favorite trip was a bit more chaotic haha. My sister decided to volunteer for a month in India this summer. After some research she found out that it was super easy to reach Thailand from India and asked if I wanted to join. Naturally I said yes. We spent two days in India taking a shower using a bucket before jetting off to Bangkok and Hua Hin. The cheapest return flight actually had a full day layover in Abu Dhabi followed by a full day in Dublin so we hit those two places on our way home too. We mostly made the trip up as we went; the only “planned” event was our trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. It brought the two of us closer as adult siblings and reignited my love of travel.

    One of my favorite trips would have to be the Mediterranean Cruise that we went on for our honeymoon. How else could you travel from Barcelona to Capri, to Rome, to Cinque Terre, to Cannes and Marseille soooo easily?

    My favorite trip so far actually happened almost exactly one year ago. My fiance and I jetsetted out to northern California for what I didn’t know was going to be an adventure of a lifetime. He is from Sonoma County, California and his best friend lives in San Francisco. We flew in to SF to visit with his BFF, who I finally got to meet in person. We saw all of SF and it was just downright fun. Next, we drove out to wine country and he showed me all around his hometown and we drank ourselves silly with wine. However, the best and most special part was smack dap in the middle of the trip. We took our rental car up the California 1 from Bodega Bay all the way up to a little town called Fort Bragg. Fort Bragg happens to be the home of Glass Beach. We got a little room in a quaint bed and breakfast for one night. The night that we arrived we went to dinner at a restaurant right on the Pacific Coast and enjoyed looking out over the ocean while we ate the most delicious meal. We wanted to hit the beach to see the sunset, but unfortunately it was overcast! However, we weren’t going to let that stop us from seeing Glass Beach, so we headed out anyways because we always like to make the best out of any situation. When we got to the beach entrance though, there was a construction sign that said it was closed! My stomach hit the floor because I couldn’t believe I was begging my fiance to drive me up to see this beach for months. To my surprise though, he said “too bad, we’re going!” So, we creeped around the construction fence and headed down to the shore. We laid out a blanket and opened up a bottle of wine and just watched the waves crash on to the shore. My fiance then put on some music and asked me to dance and said he was really trying his hardest to be more spontaneously romantic like I always say I wish he would be. Low and behold it was a complete turning point in our relationship because when the song got to the 2nd verse is when he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of his life with him. It was the most magical day of my entire life at the most special place I’ve ever been in my entire life. We’re getting married in about a month and a half and I can’t believe I get to keep adventuring on with the love of my life.

    My favorite trip was visiting Madrid for the first time almost a year ago. This was my first time traveling alone and I had signed up for a week long volunteer program called Vaughantown. It’s a total immersion program for Spaniards looking to improve their English. We traveled with 20 Spaniards and 20 Anglos (that’s what they called all of the native English speakers from the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK), and traveled to a small town of Pedraza, about 90 minutes outside the city. It was like an adult summer camp. Our only job was to converse with the Spaniards while exploring this incredible, medieval town. I walked away with a great appreciation for Spanish people and their culture. I made lifelong friends and have continued to return to volunteer about every 6 months. Truly life changing.

    My favorite trip was Malta. My friends and I were studyinga broad in London and needed to find a place to visit that was warm and we found Malta. None of us knew where it was on the map, but we went and had the most amazing time. The water was the bluest I’ve seen. Every place we went was picturesque and its history is amazing. The people are also very friendly and we felt very welcomed at all times.

    My favorite trip has been the one my husband and I took to Cancun this past June, and this is for many reasons. First because it was to celebrate our 9th anniversary and this past year we have learned to enjoy traveling alone and enjoy each others company, rather than traveling with others. Second, I was born in Mexico but grew up in the U.S. I had never been immersed nor learned so much about my roots, the culture and history of the country I was born in. This was indeed special. Third, I started a blog for my husband and I this year with hopes to do full time travel in a couple years and document our journey. This was the first major trip we planned with the idea to take note of everything we could to include in our new blog. Fourth, Cancun was simply amazing. We made conversation with people from other countries, toured, spent time with the locals, and enjoyed a beautiful beach. This trip inspired us to continue our travel dreams and goals we have set for ourselves. I know that was long, but it was simply an amazing trip. As always, love your blog and I think it’s awesome you’ll be doing giveaways! Safe travels. 🙂

    My favorite trip was one I took with my aunt for my college graduation. We went to Greece and I was able to take the most breathtaking photos! From the top of the acropolis in Athens to the sunsets in Santorini – it was a trip that had to be documented. I would love to make one of these books and gift to her as she loves mementos of our adventures together. Fingers crossed!

    My favorite trip was Rio, Brazil! It’s such a huge and amazing place with so much to see and do. The beaches, food, people, and shopping are amazing. I had never been to south America and it has inspired me to get back there as fast a possible and see some other countries 🙂
    I went with two of my best girl friends as a sort of parting trip after university and it was great to have that quality time and get into youthful shenanigans before going our separate ways. Lots of caipis were had and hostel friends were made all over.
    I would love to win a trippix book because I’m about to move to Berlin for a year and it would be a great way to capture that! (of course this blog has inspired me greatly)

    Without a doubt my favorite trip is one I just returned from last month to Central Europe. I applied for a grant offered to teachers because this area has always fascinated me with all of its history and I knew experiencing it would give me great insights for things I cover with my students. Thankfully I got the grant abdxthatchelped make the trip happen and a dream come true as I was able to go to Germany, Poland (probably my FAVORITE place we went), The Czech Republic (Cesky Krumlov a close second for favorite places!), Austria and Hungary.

    Thanks for the tip on the app!

    We have had two wonderful vacations in the past two years, but flying from the US to Sweden to see my son marry his high school (exchange student) sweetheart was the best! It was wonderful to see the beautiful city of Stockholm and just get out and get all touristy, which my son never did in any of his trips there. We visited the Abba museum where everyone danced and sang along, rode the buses, trains, sight-seeing boat, etc. The coolest thing? Her family flew the USA flag outside their home the entire time we were there. That was awesome to see!
    It was just three months ago, and I’d already love to go again.

    My favorite trip happened earlier this year. My spouse, sister, and parents traveled to Camcun, Mexico. We rented a car and drove through 3 states. The trip was magical. I reconnected with my family and we experienced things together. We tried new delicious foods, swam in blue crystal waters, we climbed ancient Mayan pyramids, hiked through a lush jungle, and met wonderful local people that exposed us to their rich culture. To say this trip was amazing is an understatement.

    I knew right away what trip I’d like to make a travel album about. This summer I went with my cousins to visit Panama for a month. So many hilarious memories! Like how we nearly got lost trying to find a beach outside of David. We spent an hour asking locals the way there, and when we finally found it… Well, it wasn’t quite within view. We had an “Amazon-style” river to cross, on foot, I might add. But, we made it unscathed. Does anyone know if there are crocodiles in Panama?
    And that is just one out of a month of adventures we experienced. And we have photographic evidence of that river, BTW.

    I just recently returned from a trip to South Africa. I absolutely fell in love with the city of Cape Town; the city of two oceans, Castle draught, and winter in June :). Although, two weeks in Cape Town was beyond perfect, when I arrived at Kruger National Park and saw the big 5 within the first two days of being “in the bush” my life was changed forever. I cannot explain how magical it is to see a pride of lions hunting on a night game drive or a herd of elephants wandering through the thickets from five meters away. Take me back to this glorious country.

    I have a few favorites, but I can say that my trip to Cappadoccia, Turkey was awesome. I visited the land of fairy chimmneies and cave houses in 2011. My friends and I took a tour around the magical landscape on four-wheelers. It was a fun time for sure.

    my husband and I just returned from an incredible trip sea kayaking with orca and humpback whales in northern Vancouver Island. I’ve traveled a good bit and this trip just took the cake. We camped with a wilderness group that cooked all our meals and did educational talks and we kayaked for 4 hours everyday. I’m no camper so I had my reservations! Ha! It was completely captivating and a true dream come true to see orca up close in the wild. I have wanted to see them since I was a little girl. I will never forget the noise they make when they service for air. Truly, a unique experience being on the water so close to them!!

    August 9, 2015 at 5:06 pm

    My favorite trip was that one time I spent three years living in France. Does that count? One of my favorite vacations ever was a 10 day solo trip to Barcelona last year. The city was beautiful and I ate so much!

    My favorite trip was spending 3 weeks in Kenya, volunteering at care centers. I had just turned 17 and I remember at first being upset with my parents for making me go. When they told me I’d be going to Kenya, I thought I’d be going on a safari. Instead, they were the ones going on the safari! As somebody who gets anxiety attacks easily, the thought of being with a host family with 4 other girls I’ve never met sounded absolutely terrifying — I wasn’t looking forward to it at all!

    That trip changed me and helped me become a lot less selfish. I learned about working with children and adults regardless of language barriers. I learned about quickly children can make you love them and how heartbreaking it is to leave. I learned about being grateful for everything I have and seeing what true poverty is like — and knowing that I truly am blessed enough that I’ll never have to reach that point of poverty in my whole entire life. I made friends who share an experience with me that I’ll never forget — friends who I know I can visit when I travel abroad, friends who I still talk to every once in a while.

    Kenya gave me my fair share of animals too! Zebras, lions, giraffes, wildebeasts, and more — I found myself amazed by Kenya’s nature and its wonderful people. My trip to Kenya was the trip where I learned that the Instagram picture doesn’t matter as much as the experience and that hotel stays will never match up to the wonderful experience of a home stay. I hope I can visit Kenya again soon as going to Kenya has been my favorite trip so far!

    I went to Croatia several years ago to explore my family’s heritage and it was the best thing I’ve ever done. I stayed in a house my great grandfather built and met relatives and family friends for the first time. One of my favorite moments was when I stopped at a nunnery in Split to visit my dad’s aunt who hadn’t had any visitors for years, and all I had was a note written in Croatian (that I didn’t understand!) explaining who I was. Though we couldn’t understand a word the other was saying, it was so beautiful to bring such joy to someone I’d never met. Croatia is so stunning on its own, but it meant so much more to see where my family came from. I feel like it’s my home that calls from across the sea.

    My very first travel photo book was one my Nan put together after our trip to Lapland for the Santa Tour.

    She now uses them regularly for her scrapbooking as they last longer and are easier to do.

    I really love them. She is always putting them together for us. I’ve never really thought about it as a way to do my own travel books though! will definitely look into this after my big trip.

    Just got back from a great month in France with my daughter and was actually working on my Shutterfly book when I was this on Facebook. (I needed a break. Picking photos to include can be very stressful!) While it was a wonderful trip, my best trip ever was the one my husband and I took just a few months before he died unexpectedly. SO glad we got to travel to Scotland and hike the Isle of Skye. Literally the trip of a lifetime…

    August 9, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    My favorite trip was Italy. I went with three of my best friends and we all had Italy on our bucket list of places to visit. We discovered amazing food, the best gelato and squid ink pasta. There was so much history, we visited the museums, the colloseum in rome, travelled to Venice, hiked the cinque Terre and tasted sweet wine from tuscany. By far, the most memorable trip out of nyc.

    I loved my semester abroad in Australia which started with a week in Fiji and ended with 10 days in New Zealand. While in NZ I went to Franz Josef with a friend and it ended up being quite the adventure. We hiked the glacier and the weather was nice but chilly. As the day went on the skies started turning and we found ourselves watching the small town flood before our eyes. Luckily our bus arrived and drove over the only bridge out of Franz Josef as we watched it wash away behind us. We only had 2 days left of our trip and I had 3 days before I needed to be in Brisbane for my flight back to America since my visa was about to expire. I still feel very lucky that we weren’t trapped since neither of us had a working phone with us and the internet was down at our hostile so we weren’t able to contact our families. The rest of our trip was pretty uneventful and we both fell in love with NZ despite the fact that it rained for 9 of our 10 days and was unseasonably cold.

    My favorite trip has to be when I went to South Korea and Perth, Australia with my daughter. Four glorious weeks exploring both countries, or little pieces of them, with my daughter who was 20 at the time! We had a blast together!!!

    My favourite trip was when I went to the Philippines on a missions trip with a bunch of my friends last summer! It was surreal riding on the roof of a jeepney down dirt roads lined by rows and rows of palm trees. I also got to go surfing, cliff jumping, and cave exploring as well as help less fortunate kids.

    My favorite trip is my adventures in France last summer. The beaches of Normandy are so moving. We splurged on a tour of these D-Day landing beaches in a 1942 Jeep. With our guide we zipped along dirt lanes between tall hedgerows and got a feel for the battles that took place there. We also went to Paris and stayed in the Latin Quarter across the street from the Sorbonne. A highlight was a bike tour of the sights including riding around the “front yard” of the Louvre. We were so enchanted with Paris that we have tickets to go back next year!

    Without a doubt, my favorite vacation was a three week trip to France last August. My mom’s parents are from (and still live in!) France, so getting the whole family together and jetting off to CDG was almost like a long-awaited pilgrimage. I was nervous that my high expectations might tarnish the experience, but I came out loving France more than ever! In fact, that trip is the very thing that helped me to take a leap of faith and start my very own travel blog! It re-affirmed my love for travel, and inspired me to finally create the life I want for myself. I adore photo books – I actually made one for my grandparents as a thank you gift for hosting the trip of a lifetime! 🙂

    Its really hard to chose a favorite trip, especially when im torn between my New Orleans trip for Mardi Gras last year or the amazing road trip my boyfriend and I just took in April! Ill have to go with the road trip though! I had this planned out for weeks and it was my first big trip since starting chasingcasey! I even wrote on back of my car for everyone on the road to see! We left from Florida and drove 8 hours to Atlanta, GA for the night! The atmosphere in Atlanta was so vibrant! From Atlanta we then drove another 5 hours to Gatlinburg, Tennessee where we spent 3 days in a beautiful cabin! The mountains views were incredible and we went white water rafting for first time. After our three days in Gatlinburg, we drove another 4 hours to Nashville, Tennessee and got ourselves a little slice of the honky tonk highway! We also visited the country music hall of fame! Last but not least we drove 9 hours to Panama City beach, Florida where we enjoyed some sun, sand, and nightlife at one of the worlds most beautiful beaches! It was the greatest experience ever!

    It is so hard to pick a favorite, but my spring trip to India was an experience I’ll never forget! We toured the Golden Triangle–visiting Dehli, Jaipur, and Agra. In our travels we learned a lot about the history of the Mogul Dynasty that ruled the country years ago. We toured many beautiful temples, mosques, and sacred sites. The country is full of bright beautiful color, strong cultural traditions, and many people with kindness in their hearts. Oh course we made a stop at the very famous Taj Mahal, pictures do not do it justice! My best friend got married toward the end of our trip in a traditional Indian wedding ceremony overlooking the Taj Majal in the distance. It was a 2 day affair and we ended the trip dancing the night away at the wedding reception dressed in our new Sari’s we had made in Jaipur.

    My two best friends and I take a “trio trip” every year. We go somewhere new each trip, and this year we chose the Grand Canyon since none of us had been there before. Going at the end of February we knew it would be chilly with the chance of snow but man we were in for a surprise. We arrived to an almost ghost town canyon village covered in the most snow they had seen in several years and it continued to snow our entire trip. We had already planned to go on a mule ride around the rim so we didn’t let the snow deter us. There was so much snow falling that we couldn’t even see the canyon that was directly beside us. We had to put all of our faith and let’s be honest, our lives, into the h̸a̸n̸d̸s̸ hooves of these sweet mules that we were assured many times were “very sure footed.” It was truly a once in a lifetime experience to see the canyon in such a way, we felt like we were in a magical land like Narnia. While we can’t wait to go back to the Grand Canyon again, in the spring time of course, we are so glad that we are now part of a small group of people who have experienced the Grand Canyon in such a special and unique way!

    I really enjoyed my last minute trip to Kyoto, Japan in May. I’m an ESL teacher in Korea, and it just so happened that we had a five day weekend, so my friend and I decided to explore Kyoto. The city is wonderful because it’s been able to retain a lot of it pre-WWII structures, and it’s the old capital of Japan. Everything there was just beautiful. The temples and shrines often had these gorgeous orange colors, the weather was the perfect spring weather (sunny but not too hot or cold), and everything was just very calm. A nice way to take a break between the hustle and bustle of kids ready to play outside. Plus culture is embedded in the city since you can’t go anywhere without running into a temple or shrine. Let’s not even talk about the beauty of the bamboo forest. And the people were the absolute kindest! They’d wait for people to take their picture instead of barging in, and this group of students helped us when my friend lost her phone.

    My favorite trip has got to be my adventure in Pakistan last Summer. Lately, Pakistan has been under scrutiny because of the unfortunate terrorist activity in the region, but the country is absolutely beautiful. I visited the capital of Islamabad, and fell in love! The city life is great, and if you didn’t know, Humans of New York/Brandon Stanton (a blogger who is known for his photography/storytelling), is actually traveling in Pakistan right now! If you go on his page, everyone can see what I’m talking about (AKA how mesmerizing Pakistan and its people are) Btw, I love your blog, Brooke! HUGE fan.

    After graduation, my boyfriend, myself and another couple wanted to spend two weeks in Europe. To have more than one travel styles/experiences, we decided in one week we would rough it out in hostels and walking shoes, backpacking for a week, and then switched to more luxury adventure on a cruise of the Mediterranean for a week! This book would certainly be a story with hostel stays, cruises, hangover mishaps, and a last horrah before becoming adults :).
