The Pale Girl’s Guide To Summer Travel

I am not a vampire, though my reactions to the sun might make you think otherwise. Tragically, I have a mild allergy to the sun, so beach holidays aren’t really my thing. I tried to fight the fates for a while and burned and blistered my way through the Caribbean and Miami. But after my…
