My name is Christa Harlin. I am a 27 year old M2 (2nd year of medical school) at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. This is primarily a travel blog, but first I need to tell you a little bit about my schooling because, in a way, it initiated my new found love of travel. My first year of medical school was very rocky and I had a huge set back (which I have now successfully overcome 🙂 ). When first confronted with this “set back”, I had a little quarter life crisis in the best way. I dyed my hair for the first time and booked my first solo trip EVER to Dublin, Ireland. Now I’ve got the travel bug and will indulge in new adventure whenever I can.
I named this blog “Little Pink Travel Book” quite simply because whenever I travel, I write down my experiences in a little pink notebook. The purpose of littlepinktravelbook.com is 2 fold: 1) To keep an electronic records of my adventures ( ya know, should anything happen to that cute little travel notebook.) and 2) To encourage/pressure me to travel at least twice a year whether it be in Europe or a 1 hour plane trip to somewhere domestic.
I hope you enjoy reading my travel notebook, and I hope it fuels your travel daydreams.
