Life at 25

Hey guys! So today’s my birthday- I’m 25! As I said last year, I don’t dread getting older because I’m happy with how I’ve spent my time, and for that matter, my birthdays. I rang in my 22nd birthday while solo-traveling in Ireland, my 23rd hosting a dinner party in Paris and my 24th at my cottage in … Read more

I’m Off to the Middle East… Wait What?

Petra

As you may have read, I’m off to Jordan TONIGHT with three friends and fellow travel bloggers: Amanda, Jessica and Julika! The four of us met in Madrid last year, insta-bonded and have been plotting our next adventure ever since. I’m ridiculously excited to explore Jordan with them. And of course, to lay eyes on the Middle East … Read more

Goals for 2015 (And How I Did in 2014)

Hey guys! As you may have read 2014 was quite a year. And honestly I’ve never been happier. From 17 to 23 my goals were the same: write for a living, speak multiple languages fluently, travel the world and get in shape. And crazy enough I was able to accomplish all of them!

2014 – A Traveler’s Review

I won’t lie- my annual end of the year wrap-up (see 2012 and 2013 here) is one of my favorite posts of the year. And like 2013, 2014 was a big ‘un. In 2014 I took a four-month, round-the-world trip in which I bopped all over Europe, did a Yoga Teacher Training in India, trekked the Himalayas for ten days … Read more

First off, I want to thank each and everyone one of you who responded to my twenty-something crisis post. I teared up reading a few of the comments- seriously, you guys are so awesome for … Read more

Taking a Blogging Break

Today I arrive in Madrid to spend the weekend with friends and fellow bloggers. You may know them: Julika from Sateless Suitcase, Jessica from Curiosity Travels and Amanda from Farsickness. We’re crashing in a gorgeous apartment provided by Go With Oh! and planning on drinking lots of red wine and consuming metric tons of pata negra. … Read more

A Change of Plans- Back to Europe!

So, I’m not going back to Asia. At least not right now.

Being my usual impulsive and FOMO-prone self, I booked a one-way ticket to Europe last week!

But I have a good reason- although 2014 will be the year I finally settle down, I want to go on one last trip to see friends and family in Europe. Plus, my little brother is studying in London – I’d be crazy not to visit!
