πŸ“ Amsterdam, Netherlands

Ready or not (I was not), Amsterdam was crazzzzy. I finally made it to my last city and I was so excited to share it with one of my best friends, Mawie! I had been looking forward to this for weeks so it was suchhh a relief to spend time with a familiar face from…

πŸ“VENICE, ITALY

Since I was 13 years old, I dreamt of coming to Venice and standing on that bridge over looking the canal. I was fascinated by the streets made of water and the bridges that crossed each segment of the city. I marveled over the boat rides to and from destinations and loved the busy life…

πŸ“ CINQUE TERRE, ITALY

Ahhhhhh. I can’t even describe how breathtaking Cinque Terre was. I’ve seen photos in the past but to be here in real life was surreal. It was my favorite city hands down and I could stay there foreverrrrrr!! We walked down to the sea and it happened to be a hot day so swimming in…

πŸ“ MILAN, ITALY

Now that I arrived to Milan, I knew that visiting the fashion/design capital was a must and it was well worth the visit! Growing up, I’ve always been into fashion and wanted to become a designer. It was amazing to be in the presence of one of the oldest shopping centres in the world and…

πŸ“ VERONA, ITALY

Verona, it was truly a pleasure to meet you. By this point in my trip, every city felt like a blur. Italy was that nice cold splash of water on your face to wake you and it’s where I left my heart. Verona was the first city in Italy to visit and I’m so happy…

To conform or to not conform

So much of my life has been dictated by the pressures of society’s expectations to live a conventional life. Go to school, get a degree, find a job, create a family, settle down. For so long, I thought I was wrong for not wanting to follow that path. I questioned my purpose in college, I…

πŸ“Ljubljana, Slovenia

Pronounced “Lyoo-blyah-nah” (yes, it’s tricky at first sight) was one of the hidden gems that I never expected. It utterly took my breath away and is one of the cities I genuinely wish I had more time in. At check in with our hostel, the receptionist told us “yes, Lake Bled is a popular and…

πŸ“ BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

In preparation for my visit to Buda, I thought it’d be a good idea to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel because I thought it would give me a glimpse to what the city would be like and what I was getting myself into. Fast forward 40 min into the movie and I fell asleep without…

πŸ“ PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC

What can I say about Prague when my breath has been taken awaaaaay. The second I landed into Prague, I was in absolute awe over the city. It’s filled with such a spectacular array of details, small town life, with a hometown feel. I was initially obsessed with how all the homes looked like little…

πŸ“BERLIN, GERMANY

Going into this trip, I had little to no research done of each city I was visiting. Maybe it was due to my want to be surprised or due to laziness, who really knows. Regardless, I had such an eye opening experience and a unique feel from every city. My trip kicked off in Berlin,…

πŸ“CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

Recently, my cousin and I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago, a city that’s been on my bucket list for the past year, for my first time. The moment I stepped off the plane, I was welcomed by this warm breeze and knew that it was going to be a good time. Our first full…

Henniversary Weekend Getaway

I know it may seem like my boyfriend and I have celebrated our anniversary a lot this month (& yeah, maybe we have) but it’s been so long since we’ve actually spent a weekend out of town, away from home, and simply just enjoyed each others company. We had been planning for weeks to get…
