WTF is WWOOF

Written by: Kody Roach As we began planning for our travels we wanted to find ways to stretch our time in Europe. That is to say, we wanted to find budget friendly travel tactics. We researched many ways to do this and learned of a […]

Brotherhood At Belleau Wood

Brotherhood At Belleau Wood

Written by: Kody Roach One of the places I felt compelled to visit while in the area was Belleau Wood in Belleau, France. The Battle of Belleau Wood is an historic battle in Marine Corps history; one all Marines are familiar with. A battle where […]

Barcelona. We made it. The true beginning of our European adventure was finally here! We got off of the cruise ship at the port around 8:30am and took a bus downtown. It was difficult to take much in since we were concerned with figuring out […]
