When I was in Jr. High, someone told me that Venice would disappear one day. Water level would get too high and the entire city would be submerged. Like any naive 14 yr old, I felt rather cheated because I truly believed it could be swallowed at any minute, and the panic of not being … Continue reading Tried to ‘Venice’ like an Instagrammer
"I read the rules before I break them." When I was 17, I thought it was smart to hop in a car and drive to North Carolina with a friend. We had 100 dollars to our names, but we were sure that it would be enough to get us there and back. We planned to … Continue reading Licensed to Rebel
From the moment we left the airport, there was never a period of time when we weren’t being affectionate towards one another. I kept calling it, “disgustingly cute.” My self deprecating nature wouldn’t allow me to just simply enjoy the moment, I had to remember the whole feet-planting promises that I made myself. I found it remarkably wonderful that we got so comfortable with one another in such a short period of time. It was as if I knew him my entire life. Simply put, we just clicked straight away. While in Paris, I felt that we got swept up in the romantic setting. However, if you were to choose a place in time where you can be completely and foolishly romantic, wouldn’t you choose Paris? This utterly photogenic city has been an incredible backdrop to our love story.
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?
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!
There are many tourist traps out there but I think this is quite the catch. It was a relaxing thing to do after our flight. The silica mask softened our skin and I can't imagine a better way to be welcomed to Iceland than to soak in the Lagoon for several hours. Definitely recommend it.
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.
