Study Abroad Reflection: Lessons Learned

Four years ago, I was in Seville, Spain doing a semester-long study abroad program. When I think about that semester, a lot of mixed feelings come up. On the surface, it was an incredible experience. I traveled all over Europe; I took a lot of fun classes, such as a cooking class, and a film […]

Explore With Me: Santa Fe and Crested Butte

I just got back from an amazing road trip to Crested Butte, Colorado with a quick stop in Santa Fe, New Mexico! I’d been to Santa Fe once when I was younger, so I was looking forward returning. I’d never been to Crested Butte before, but my parents and my sister had and they told […]

Explore With Me: Las Vegas, Nevada

Last month I visited Las Vegas for the first time with two of my friends, so I wanted to share some photos and talk about my experience. Vegas is somewhere I knew I wanted to visit at least once in my life, and I’m glad I finally did it! Day One We arrived in Las […]

Explore With Me: Fort Worth, TX

I finally took my first real vacation of 2017 over Memorial Day Weekend, when my boyfriend and I went to Fort Worth for a long weekend. We left Friday morning and came back Monday afternoon, so it was the perfect length of time to get away for a while without being gone for too long. […]

I stayed in each country for about three days and four nights, and was lucky enough to have friends to stay with in both places. I stayed with Tara and Katherine in London. They are […]

Spring Break ’14: A Week in Italy

¡Hola amigos! Happy belated Easter! Though I may have been slightly jealous when the rest of you were on Spring Break a month ago, this past week definitely made all of the waiting worthwhile. In Spain, and most of the rest of Europe, they don’t really have a “Spring Break” like we do in the […]

Madrid y Barcelona

Yes, I am aware that it has been forever since my last post. But in my defense, I’ve been really busy traveling for the past two weekends. Isn’t it ironic that when I actually have interesting material to write about, I’m too busy to write about it? Anyway, in this post I am going to […]

La vida sin un iPhone

For those of you who haven’t heard, I have now been iPhone-free for three weeks. And no, I am not “like totally dying” without it. But there are definitely things that I miss. Things I miss: 1) Snapchat. Yes, I do realize how pathetic it is that this is #1. Don’t judge me. 2) Pretending […]
