Stand-up Paddle Boarding For The First Time

Over the weekend, my friend and I wanted to stand up paddle boarding for the first time in Hong Kong. I was skeptical about doing it because we did not know how to swim, but we did not want that to hold us back. After doing extensive research on different beaches that have to stand ...

Winter is coming!

It is that time of year where festivities begin along with the cold weather. The bright sun which isn’t warm, the cold breeze hitting your face and hands, so you always want to put your hands in your pocket, stay in the warmth indoors sipping hot chocolate enjoying the views outdoors, right? Oh, how I ...

Vegan Eats in Athens

With the European Union allowing travel between countries and Drexel announcing that we are allowed to travel to “green zone” countries, I had the incredible opportunity to visit Greece, which I will forever call ‘The Land of Hummus and Falafel’! I ate all of the garbanzo beans and fava beans that I possibly could over ...

Tips for Packing Using Only a Backpack

Use a large durable backpack I have had a large Swiss backpack since I started high school and it is the best backpack I have owned. It has held up really well and fits so much inside it. I highly recommend getting one or something similar and using it for all of your trips where ...

Rainy Trip in Berlin

My roommate Erin’s dad thought that it would be a waste to fly to Copenhagen for the weekend just to fly right back to Rome. He suggested that we go to Berlin. We booked our flights just days before we left for Copenhagen and packing was even harder than expected because now we were packing ...

Copenhagen in Pictures

My roommate Ruby has family in Copenhagen and they were away for the weekend and invited us to stay in their apartment. We had originally planned on spending the weekend in Austria but we hadn’t yet booked transportation or accommodations so we somewhat spontaneously decided to go to Copenhagen. A few days later, we booked ...

And That’s a Wrap 

Well, if you say I have attachment issues because I love London so much and I am more than sad that I had to leave that place – that would be fair. I am finally back home after so long and I couldn’t be more excited to spend the next one month here but a ...

Almost Touched the Clouds

This week’s blog is from WatchHouse Cafe at Convent Garden. Cafes will always be my favorite spot to work from at London because there are so many work friendly cafes around London that it motivates me to get my work done. Right now, I am sitting in front of this huge window which overlooks the ...

Walking Amongst the Oxonian Greats

Out of all the towns I’ve visited in England, my day trip to Oxford last weekend was definitely the most “quintessentially English”. I always imagined the prestigious university to be filled with archaic buildings, freshly manicured gardens, libraries filled with every book possible, and ancient history bursting from every street corner. Thanks to an amazing ...
