They’re Taking The Hobbits To Barcelona

Well, will you look at that – we finallly got around to making a post about our vacation in Spain this summer! It took us a while, because there were a lot of photos to sort through, but here we are, writing about it.

Technically, it was a family vacation; my family decided to go to Catalonia for our annual summer vacation, and because I’ve grown quite tired of the constant tensing between certain relatives of mine, I’ve decided that I would not join them unless Frodo came with me. And, I mean, my family might not be the coolest people on this planet, but they’re all right when it comes down to it, and it was a free vacation, in Spain, so why would Frodo say no?

Just… here you go.

There And Back Again, Post 1: „I didn’t choose the fandom life…“

“…the fandom life came into my dorm room and told me they had a Lord of the Rings locations guide”. Or: the story of how this random girl opened the door to the dorm room and turned my life upside down. Although that sounds either like it’s the start of an adventurous adventure, which it wasn’t if we’re honest, or the start to a sappy rom-com, which it wasn’t either.
