I’m Erin: avid reader, lover of the outdoors, can’t-sit-still-for-one-second Type-A writer, creative, artist, and animal lover. My husband and I downsized our life and moved from Chicago to Birmingham, England (Brum for short) in the summer of 2015 with our dog, Penny, in tow. We’re traveling Europe as often as his work schedule allows and sharing our mishaps, travel tips, awkward run-ins, and general nonsense on Brum & Beyond. Follow along as we try to strike a balance between nerding out on European history, living like locals, and losing track of time in the breathtaking landscape of this continent.

You can reach me by emailing erindoyle3@yahoo.com.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. – Henry David Thoreau
