Hey there, I'm Skylar!
I'm awesome, you're awesome. Let's be awesome together.
The Grog Guide toCopenhagen Copenhagen is a quaint, charming city with plenty of food and drink options. In the winter months coffee shops and bars are filled with “hygge”, so much so that you’ll find yourself spending hours sipping on something warm by the fire. In the summer months, the parks and green spaces come
So where to begin… my best friend (let’s call her Jordyn) and I have always talked about going abroad for a girl’s trip. We imagined England or France – somewhere that seemed accessible. At the time, she had more experience traveling abroad with her, and her now-husband (we’ll call him Greek Guy – he’s Greek,
The last time you planned a trip, how many places were on the itinerary? Two? Three?

For a recent bachelor party, my friends and I decided that going to Oktoberfest in Germany would be a great idea. I know, surprise surprise, a bunch of dudes decided to go to the world’s largest beer festival. One of the groomsmen lives in Munich, so the prospect of free housing was appealing. And also beer.
You’re probably painfully aware by now that I’m a huge proponent of ultralight travel. For the uninitiated, ultralight, or one-bag travel generally means fitting your entire packing list into a backpack, usually about 30-40 liters in capacity. I’ve written about my packing list, which I use for every trip. What about a month-long safari, you
I think it’s only fitting to do a post on the namesake of the blog, grog. You may have heard of the drink before, but the meaning has morphed across time and peoples. As with all good stories, this is one filled with politics, war, and necessity. As far as we can tell, the word
