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 ...

Cheung Chau Island

This past weekend, my friends and I have traveled to a different island called Cheung Chau. We had to take the train to the pier and take a ferry to the island. When we first arrived off the boat, there were many small shops and bikes. The island is tiny that locals are not driving ...

Sunset in Sorrento

I went on a trip run by the American University of Rome to Southern Italy this weekend. We went to Naples, Sorrento, Capri, and Pompeii. They coordinated our accommodations which also included breakfast and dinner at the hotel we stayed along with an open itinerary of where we were going to be when. Visiting four ...

~Paradise~ (Bocas del Toro)

Hola personas! Hope you’re all doing well because I definitely did! This past weekend, we finally went on our Panama Field Trip. I know nothing about Panama before going, all I knew is there was a canal somewhere and it was a pretty big deal at one point. However, we traveled to Bocas del Toro ...

Skagen: The Northern Most Tip of Denmark

Over the weekend, my friends and I hopped on a bus that took us to the tip of the world – or, at least, the very tip of Denmark. Skagen is a small coastal town at the very north of Denmark. I had heard that it’s very pretty during the summer months and it’s worth ...

Brighton Beach Day

This past weekend, I ventured off to Brighton on a day trip to lounge on the beach and get some sun. My initial interest in the city stemmed from my love of the youtuber “Zoella”, and the numerous videos I grew up watching of her exploring, and falling in love with Brighton. Although I was ...

When in Marseille

Colonized by the ancient Greeks – and still home to some Greek ruins – Marseille is now the second largest city in France, boasting both enthralling history and breathtaking views.  It is this city that I chose to visit ...
