The flight came to a rumbling halt as our plane landed at Gatwick Airport, different from Heathrow, something that I’ve learned while landing. This entire time, I wrongfully assumed that Gatwick/Heathrow were the same thing. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know, I just assumed. Flashback to a month ago when I gleefully said, “it … Continue reading 7 hrs and 40 mins layover: To Explore or Not Explore?
“How did it get so late so soon?” - Dr. Seuss I have been thinking a lot about time, and there is a tied emotion for which I have no words to articulate. I know that I have been wandering around this universe with this incredibly dark cloud following me. The familiar feeling of resentment … Continue reading Time Won’t Give You a Minute
One of my favorite things to do while traveling is finding good places to eat. Part of the experience is expanding your palate. "Have an alligator on a stick!" After a few short days in the warm city of New Orleans, I felt that my stomach was quite pleased with all the flavorful yums! I … Continue reading Eateries in New Orleans
“Wait, you’re going alone? Do you know anyone there?” “I am going alone and I don’t know a single person there.” I sat at the airport, eating my burrito bowl, as I waited to depart Boston. It was a night flight which meant that I would arrive early in Ireland. Too early to check into … Continue reading Why I “yolo” solo-dolo!
Our experience with driving in Iceland. Sometimes, you just gotta take a leap of faith and hope for the best. We're glad that we rented a car while we were there but we were also very fortunate with the weather. I can't imagine driving in a hailing blizzard. Here are some shots of Iceland from our road trip.

This was perhaps one of the most scenic drive that I've taken in Norway. I'm glad that we made good use of the daytime to really see all that this beautiful country has to offer. All of it's surrounding mountains and valleys creates the most picturesque landscapes.
Often times, I feel that parents either just choose not to travel with their children or they compromise in a sense that is always less beneficial for one over the other. You don't have to go stand in long lines at Disney just so that your child can have an enjoyable vacation! So I started reading up on different travel ideas, and ways in which you can connect children with nature. Which brings me back to Norway. We planned a trip back to Norway because we have family here, but also wanted to give this an opportunity to really showcase a different approach to family traveling.
My thoughts are too long for a Facebook status, so I’ll write them here instead. Last night, I witnessed Americans practice their rights to vote by choosing a candidate that perpetuates everything that we teach our children not to be. I am disappointed, saddened, and shocked because I so badly wanted to believe in the … Continue reading My Pussy, My Choice.
