Mediterranean Restaurants You Just Can’t Miss

I had no idea how just a year abroad would turn me into a complete foodie. While growing up in Pensacola always meant grits à ya ya & water views, I never knew what incredible Mediterranean restaurants were just a short eight hour plane ride away. So while you may be closer to the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean…

5 Unexpected Cities That Will Steal Your Heart

I always thought it would be the most famous cities that would impact me most. While selfies with the Colosseum & Eiffel Tower have made for profile pictures galore though, it has been the the strolls through quiet cobblestone villages and foreign serenading that have truly stolen my heart.

Beijing, China

Arriving late afternoon to the heart of Beijing (after a missed flight & 5 extra hours of travel), we checked into our beautiful, flower obsessed hostel & headed out in search of Beijing’s most delicious dumplings. Walking along the hidden streets of the Donghuashi district, we quickly realized we weren’t in the tourist section of…

Japan by Shinkansen: Hakone & Kyoto

Waking up in Hakone, our first Shinkasen pitstop began with a four o’clock sunrise over Lake Ashi & a Japanese inspired breakfast. Staying at the Hakone Hotel on the bank of Lake Ashi, everything Hakone has to offer was just a walk, boat, or cable car ride away. Deciding first to catch the cruise around…

48 Hours In Tokyo

Flying 5,000 miles from Melbourne, Australia to Tokyo, Japan it only took 9 and a half hours to find myself in an entirely different hemisphere, culture, & cuisine. Trekking first from Tokyo’s Narita airport to Hamamatsucho staton in the central Minato district, we quickly dropped our bags and started on our to do list for 48…

A Summer Down Under: Outside of City Centre

Moonlit Sanctuary Similar to many other first time tourists in Australia, the top item on my bucket list was a close encounter with some of Australia’s most famous animals. Learning quickly that holding koalas is fairly rare outside of Queensland, I worried that my closest encounter would be the glimpses I caught at the Sydney…

A Summer Down Under: Melbourne

While Sydney was described to me many times as “the LA of Australia,” and Melbourne the New York, I left sunny Sydney ready for the hustle the bustle. Dropping my bags at Southern Cross Station and wandering down the gridded streets to Federation Square, it didn’t take me long to start seeing what everyone meant.

A Summer Around The World

Traveling through three continents, eight cities, and circumnavigating the globe completely, this summer has been unlike any other. Starting in South Africa, interning in Australia, and then sightseeing through Japan, China, and Nepal, catch a glimpse of my summer around the world in the video below! Also check back for posts about my adventures in…

A Summer Down Under: Sydney

Figuring one winter for the year wasn’t enough, as soon as summer hit New York, I hopped on a flight and headed down under to Sydney, Australia. Traveling for 30 hours and arriving just after six in the morning, I spent my first two mornings at the studio combatting 14 hours of jet lag with Pilates…

To: South Africa

A city covered with sandy beaches and bookended by mountains, Cape Town is known as the most beautiful city in South Africa. Speckled with diverse culture & one of the world’s most riveting histories, my week in South Africa was the perfect combination of everything I hoped and nothing I expected. Flying from New York…

The Real Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants

No one understands “going out with a bang” better than five wanderlust college kids who spent the last year of their lives traveling the world. Using our last birthday excursion as an excuse to sunbathe excessively and try out our summer runway looks, I knew from the start that our final trip to Greece would be…

The Pearl of the Adriatic (& All Of Europe)

Traveling to Dubrovnik was a bit of an after thought for me. Moving to London with a roundtrip ticket, a short stay visa, and plans to be Stateside by the time the New Year rolled around, it wasn’t until I was on my way back to Heathrow did Dubrovnik squeeze it’s way onto my list of…
