London pt. 4: Until Next Time

Have you ever been somewhere for the first time and it strangely felt like home? That’s how I feel about London. I vividly remember one of the last days of my study abroad saying to a friend that it didn’t matter what we spent the day doing, because I’d be back. I can probably chalk a…

London pt. 3: The Foodie Tour

On our last day in London we decided to design our own tour. We wanted something that would blend the best of both worlds: seeing the sites and eating. Thus, the Foodie Tour was born. Our excursion began in London’s East End at a quirky little spot on Brick Lane. We were first tipped off to Cereal Killer Cafe…

One of the highlights of my trip to London was our foodie tour {full story coming soon}. Despite how delicious it was, the best dinner all week wasn’t part of the tour, but rather a happy accident.

London pt. 2: Let’s Be Tourists!

London pt. 1: Lost in London

As with anything in life, things never go exactly as planned. My roommate and I were beside ourselves with excitement for our trip to Europe. When we landed at Heathrow I quickly had to trade my schoolgirl giddiness for practicality as I pulled out the directions to our AirBnB. We’d done our research. We were prepared. Nothing…

Unpacking Europe

Last fall my roommate, Adrienne, and I decided {on a bit of a whim} to go to Europe for New Years. It’s been seven months since that adventure. Seven months! It’s crazy how quickly time flies. Finally I’ve sat down and devoted time to combing through my photos and re-reading my journal entries. I think a travel recap…

I’m Going On An Adventure!

“So I had this idea…” I said after my dad picked up the phone. “Uh oh, where are you planning a trip to now?” I laughed. “Is it at least in the U.S.?” he probed. I laughed again. He knows me well. If you know me well then you also know my insatiable passionate for travel….
