Some travel pictures to inspire the wanderlust in you.

Tomorrow, I am leaving for a one month adventure to Europe. It will be the first time setting foot on the continent and it will be the first time I will be traveling by myself! I will be traveling around Ireland for 3 weeks, then flying to Berlin to see some German friends I met in New Zealand, and then I am taking a train to Prague. From there, I will be homebound. I’m equal parts thrilled and nervous, which after doing copious amounts of travel research, I found is perfectly normal to feel. This also means I will be taking a hiatus from The Lilac Road for when I will be overseas as I won’t be taking my laptop with me and can’t guarantee I will have internet where I will be staying. However, this also means when I come back, I will (hopefully) have so much more inspiration for this little lovechild of mine. I also have bigger plans for The Lilac Road I’m excited to knuckle down on when I come back too!

So, farewell for now darling readers. I hope you all have a wonderful, enchanting November and I will see you very soon.

    Dear Jenny, I wish you all the very best for your travels through Europe. I want to thank you for all your wisdom and words that you share on your blog. It is so much help and guidance for me through my darkness and has enlightened and helped me through a lot of issues I am going through.. I always tell people about you and your inspiration that you light into my life. I’m really grateful and lucky that I stumbled upon your blog and that you came into my life! You are an amazing girl and I’m sure more than girls like me leaving comments have been enlightened and warmed by your words than you know, but I just want you to know how much your simple daily posts have walked with me through my hardest days.. Thank you and keep it up if you ever feel discouraged; remember and believe you are doing a wonderful wonderful thing 🙂
