It’s So Close 

As I was sitting at Bafarat Cafe at Soho last day and getting my work done, I got a text from my sister asking me to look into flights for going back home. It’s at that point that hit me that I am here for only two more weeks. All these days I kept on ...

Under the Tuscan Sun

I spent the weekend in Tuscany. We were primarily planning a trip to Florence but I ended up finding a gorgeous Airbnb about 45 minutes outside of Florence that is in a 12th century castle.

Traveling and sightseeing the country I’d be living in was also a goal I wanted to accomplish while abroad. That’s how I picked the ...

A Vegan Weekend in London!

With COVID restrictions lifting slowly here and there, I got the wonderful opportunity to travel to London. In a country that speaks English, I got the luxury of just requesting that my meals were vegan and not having to say “Senza latte e uovo e formagio e burro e prodotti animali per favore!!” I took ...
