Ah, Kyoto. Japan’s third largest city - and it's oldest. Rich in traditional Japanese culture, Kyoto is undoubtedly an experience unlike any other. It's a special place where the modern and ancient worlds appear to seamlessly merge. For instance: I loved how I went to a super sleek restaurant in the center of … Continue reading Japan’s Imperial Capital
We knew we wanted to kick our Japan trip with an extended stay in Tokyo, and research brought us to our second destination, Hakone. Hakone (pronounced ha-kone-eh) was a unique experience. It's great for the adventure-seeking-mildly-outdoorsy-types. My style? Retrospectively speaking, probably not. But, hey, it's good to try new things, right? To put it in … Continue reading Where the hell is Hakone?
Hey! Hi! Hello! It’s me. Back in action. I know I’ve been out of commission for quite some time now. To put it bluntly: life got tough, I got lazy, and I ultimately shelved one of my favorite hobbies: writing. Not having the energy to do one of the things I love the … Continue reading TOKYO DRIFT
You've got 3 days in Austin. I've got you covered. I was luckily enough to travel to Austin for work last month and it's safe to say that this tiny city in the middle of the state is definitely up there on my favorite cities list. Parts of Austin are super vintage, which I loved, … Continue reading Travel diaries: 3 days in Austin
Ah, fall. PSL season. Halloween season. Pretty foliage season. Drink-more-beer-since-it's-football-season, season (lol JK I don't really do #sports.) Nonetheless, it's an exciting time, and as the season changes and I start to low-key long for a beach, I figured it was the most opportune time to finally get around to writing about my Bermuda trip! … Continue reading Travel Diaries: 3 days in Bermuda
As I'm sure you've noticed, we've been back from the Turkish Turquoise Coast for quite some time now, yet I still haven't gotten around to finishing (cough, starting) my blog post about it! Well, being that I've finally found some time to chill out on a Sunday, I'm ready to tell gather my thoughts and … Continue reading #traveldiaries: Turkey 2018
I can't think of a better way to spend President's Day than by taking a quick trip to DC (unless there's a beach in Greece involved, because then I might reconsider.) Ben and I drove down to DC last Saturday for the long holiday weekend (lol jk I worked from my DC office on Monday, … Continue reading 48 hours in DC!
Olá, amigos! The temps have dropped and snow is on the ground in NYC! The weather peeps got the forecast right when they predicted a 'deep freeze', that's for sure. And on top of that, Christmas has already come and gone, which breaks my heart to say. Why does it always go so fast?! At … Continue reading 2 days in Porto
TGIF, party people! Can you believe I’m only JUST getting around to finishing up my Lisbon post! It’s so crazy to think that it’s been nearly two MONTHS since we left the Big Apple for Portugal. What happened?! One, I've been working on some new content, which will be coming your way soon! Two, time … Continue reading 4 days in Lisbon
Thinking of Tamariu makes me laugh. Mostly because when it was proposed to us as a day trip, it was described as a tiny beach with not much to do or see. WRONG. Very wrong. This beach town took my breath away! I knew that would be the case as soon as the road to … Continue reading Tamariu and kayaking in the Mediterranean
