16 Things Travel Taught me in 2016

•••
1. Never skip breakfast First things first. Never miss that morning alarm, as you'll miss one of the best introductions to a country. A morning filled with locals breads, teas, coffees, and whatever the local morning delicacy is, is hands down the best way to start exploring a new culture. I never used to be a breakfast person, but after tasting some of the[...]

What Makes me feel at Home in Colorado?

•••
Everyone knows that the holidays are typically when you head home. Home means different things to different people; sometimes it doesn't even mean a location, but a group of people. Sometimes it is getting away from people and heading to a place. For me, home has more than one meaning, because I have more than one home. On the one hand it's going to Target w[...]

How to Au Pair in Australia

•••
I wanted to live in Australia since the day I heard Steve Irwin say 'crikey mate' as he cruised around white sandy beaches searching for crocs.

The place where I was a child, a teenager, a young adult and whatever you want to call me now. The place where I loved and was loved. It’s a place where I always felt cherished and that al[...]

5 reasons to leave your partner at home

Skylines and Apps: Lost and found in Tokyo

•••
My first time in Asia (as a travel blogger? Scandalous, I know) went by in no time. I had three days to stuff my face with food, get a feel for the world’s largest city, Tokyo, and to try and keep calm during my very first earthquake. Needless to say, just about all my senses were constantly overwhelmed and loved every second! Tokyo feels like the future. It[...]
