六 | Touristy Things prt. 1

September 23rd, 2016 I can’t believe I’ve been in Hong Kong for a month. Time is seriously flying by and I’m in no rush for this experience to end. At the same time I feel like I’ve been here longer than a month, and it’s probably because of all the adventuring I’ve done. There’s a ...

20 years and cinque terre

Cinque Terre will always be  remembered as the “best day”. We woke up bright and early and left our apartments at 5 to catch our train on time. We started in Vernazza, which if you only know Cinque from google images, is the one with the colorful houses. I spent the whole day trying to ...

Cliffs of Moher and Authentic American Food

If there is anything I can advise about going to Ireland, it is GO TO THE CLIFFS OF MOHER. I don’t care if you’re only in the country for a couple of hours and only have one thing to see, this is it. Our tour included a couple of different cliffs on the way and ...

It’s been 19 days since I last checked in and I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. I should have written at least five days ago but I’ve been a busy, busy bee. Sorry about that and to make it up to you, I’ve compiled a list of all the stuff I’ve done ...

Raíces: Andalucía Part I

Hola todos, School is starting to pick up with the workload with midterms quickly approaching. I have an exam next Thursday for Spanish Language History, on Friday for Communication Theory and a four-page paper due for my Novel class in three weeks! The communication class requires A LOT of analysis. At times, it feels a ...

Raíces: Toledo

Hola amigos, This past Saturday, I took a day trip with City Life to Toledo. It was a nice trip to such a symbolic city. Toledo is an hour’s drive from Madrid. It was founded over 3000 years ago and was even the capital of Spain for several decades. It is a city filled with ...

Cachai?: Utilice Su Tiempo Bien

As the months and days reach closer to December, to my departure and return to the United States, anxiety and a sense of hurry and panic seeps in. It is not just the thought that I will be leaving soon that is tearing me apart, but doubts about whether I am fully taking advantage of ...
