Kolby Did Athens: Salad and Sunset atop the Acropolis

Photos and Story by Kolby Solinsky / Instagram Everything everybody says: it’s true. Athens is dirty. There’s graffiti, like, everywhere. It seems dangerous, although my jury’s out on whether it actually is. (Many places in Europe seem dangerous, just because the lights go down and you’ve never been there before.

“To a Mouse” by Robert Burns

1785. Small, crafty, cowering, timorous little beast, O, what a panic is in your little breast! You need not start away so hasty With argumentative chatter!

Kolby Did London: The Thames, Banana Bread Beer, and Not Terrible Teeth

*Photos and Story by Kolby Solinsky… London’s a funny vacation spot, because it’s not a vacation spot. You touch down at the finest airport in the world – nothing can compete with the boutique-ity or the downright intentionally charming cheesiness of Heathrow’s shops, gates, and duty free alleys – and you pay way too much for […]
