  • Places to Visit in South Wales

    Of all the places I’ve been, Wales is probably one of the most beautiful. The countryside is green and hilly (not to mention all the sheep!); the towns are adorable; and the history is everywhere. There truly is something for everyone! While there is so…

  • Day Trips from London: Cardiff

    Welcome back to my Day Trips from London series! Previously I’ve covered St. Albans, Salisbury & Stonehenge, and Cambridge and I’m excited to write a bit about another lovely location now: Cardiff, Wales. My family and I decided to go to Cardiff for the day after…

  • 2017 Goals

    I’ve thought about these goals for a while now. I mean, it is February and I’m just writing out my goals for the new year, after all! I know people think New Year’s resolutions are important, but I see no reason to have them picked…

  • Why You Should Visit the Guggenheim

    One of the cool things about New York (or any large city for that matter) is that no matter how much you think you’ve done, you probably still have more to see. This proved true when my mom suggested we visit the Guggenheim while she…

  • The BEST Christmas Decorations in NYC

    I didn’t spend the actual Christmas holiday in New York City, but I did enjoy my fair share of Christmas joy that NYC has to offer before I went back to Florida. While NYC did have some pretty grand Christmas scenes, it didn’t quite compare to…

  • Autumn in Central Park

    One of the things I love about living in NYC is my close proximity to Central Park. I didn’t live close to anything green in London, so I feel like I missed most of the autumn foliage because I really had to seek it out.…

  • The Poppies of Remembrance

    When I google Veterans Day, the first thing that pops up is a list of websites about Veterans Day deals. When I google Remembrance Day, I get articles about the emotionality of the day; the soldiers’ mental health; and a reflection on the 98 years…

  • Day Trips from London: Cambridge

    As one of the oldest and highest-ranking universities in the world, Cambridge is a magical place to visit. Filled to the brim with beautiful architecture, insanely smart people, and lots of history, this university town is a must-do day trip from London. Looking for other…

  • Leiden: our last stop

    I’ve spent way too long writing posts from my European adventure. Can you believe it’s been about a year and a half?! I can’t either. Anyways, our last stop was Leiden, where we stayed whilst we visited Keukenhof and prepared for our journey back to London.…

  • Day Trips from London: Stonehenge & Salisbury

    Stonehenge is one of those iconic British sights. If you’re in London, it makes a great day trip. After all, there’s nothing like stepping back 5000 years in time! The easiest way to visit Stonehenge, in my opinion, is to go through Salisbury. Stonehenge is…
