Mexico: The cities edition

My one travel advice for you is to get some friends who’ll do all the planning for you. Really, just show up with the cash money. And if you want to make it seem like you put in some effort, exchange the money to the country’s currency prior to arrival. Or, maybe just get yourself…

Travel essentials Pt.1

Although it’s a work in progress, I’m slowly learning the art of traveling light. I now look back on times where I would pack 7 outfits for 2 day trips, but that number has gone down to maybe 4…Hey, I said WORK-IN-PROGRESS! Also, the less I travel with, the more I realize how much I…

on T R I A L S

“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome.” This is one of my favorite quotes…

A Monday in Montauk

Ah, Summer, stay forever. I love days that roll by where I find that my biggest problems are having too much sand in between my toes or too many plans to squeeze in a day. There’s something magical about capturing glistening summer days in pictures and looking back on them to see color and sunshine…

Airport 101

I have a Master’s in whining, so I shouldn’t be talking, but I’m going to take a moment out of my day to share my airport pet peeves with you! I love airports. I love being in an airport. I don’t, however, love when people can’t function normally in an airport environment. Let me unleash!…

Chillin’ in Charleston

The moment I decided to take a spontaneous road trip South to see my friend, I knew I could finally overuse the word peachy and fake a southern accent the whole ride down. #noregrets. My college friend Megha is often at Charleston for work, and for once, our schedules aligned! Our friend Taral joined the trip from…

A long layover in Seoul

RUN! That was my initial thought when I landed in Seoul and wanted to hit up all the sites in 16 hours. I had one tour planned and a few ideas on my list of what I wanted to see, but no game plan. Sometimes, no game plan is the best game plan.  I land I…

Hello, Vietnam

My friend Dana and I were planning to meet up for months, so we decided on a date in October, 2016. Oh, and we also decided that Vietnam would be a good place to meet up and so I bought a plane ticket, convinced my friend Angela to join, and just like that I was…

Pray Big

Last month, a good friend of mine reminded me to pray big. What does that mean? It means that you shouldn’t be afraid to ask God for ANYTHING. I realized that sometimes I don’t ask God for something because I’m afraid it’s such a huge request or that it’s so unrealistic or unattainable. But with…
