Taking the Stena HSS Discovery from Harwich, England, to Hoek von Holland

Taking the Stena HSS Discovery from Harwich, England, to Hoek von Holland

— I’m now aboard the Stena HSS Discovery. This is weird. I wasn’t sure what I was expecting, but it’s like a floating Las Vegas casino. Okay, maybe an off-Strip one, but you get the idea. There are movie theaters showing first-run movies, bars, restaurants, cafes, and casino games. The Stena HSS Discovery, sailing from Harwich in England to Hoek von Holland. This vessel carries vehicles, too, and truckers even have their own lounge.
Preparing for my summer fun in Europe

Preparing for my summer fun in Europe

— In my recent posts, I’ve hinted I’m doing some traveling this summer. I won’t leave you in the dark any longer. In the next couple weeks, I’m leaving for a month-and-a-half-long backpacking trip through Europe. Yes, Europe again. Yes, I have the bug, and I have it bad. On my way to Europe, I’m spending a few nights in Iceland, which I’ve been wanting to see for years. There’s 24-hour daylight there this time of year, and I’m very curious to experience it, as well as taking part in Reykjavik’s infamous nightlife.
