Tianxin and La Pupuseria

I think it's a beautiful thing that a Norwegian/Irish white girl and a Chinese girl can walk into a Salvadoran restaurant to get food without even the thought of how none of this would be possible without being so beautifully connected, especially by food. I mean, all of the waitresses still looked at us like … Continue reading Tianxin and La Pupuseria

The Bad Days: Stories You Didn’t Hear from Spain

Traveling is not always as fabulous or fun as Instagram bloggers (covertly trying to sell you products) portray it. Life is certainly never a constant high, and there are aspects to travel, especially long-term trips that have quite deep, sometimes embarrassing lows. Life is hard, and strange, and also magnificent. It's still life though, no … Continue reading The Bad Days: Stories You Didn’t Hear from Spain

Granada : Alhambra, Tapas, and a Small World

I'm broke, and yet here I am in another beautiful city. Is it luck? The cheap bus tickets in Spain? My mom? (Thanks mom) As you know, I'm studying abroad in Spain for the summer, spending most of my days in the beautiful city of Salamanca, where there are drinks the size of my head … Continue reading Granada : Alhambra, Tapas, and a Small World

Madrid: Sungate One Hostel & All the Sites to See

On Memorial Day in the U.S, I sat in the airport waiting for my flight, feeling incredibly stupid for not only mistaking the time of the flight but also for forgetting my adapter AND euros at home. In the end it didn't really matter (it cost me quite a bit, don't be like me). At … Continue reading Madrid: Sungate One Hostel & All the Sites to See

My Summer in Spain

Hello all you lovely, freshly baked cupcakes! If you don't know me, you haven't had the pleasure (or as some would call it, annoyance) of my non-stop gush of how excited I am to be spending this summer in Espana! I'll be taking Spanish classes and finishing up my Spanish minor. If that doesn't sound dope … Continue reading My Summer in Spain

Williamsburg, VA

It's funny how some people are enthralled by a vacation to Florida or the Caribbean. How can I blame them though? The warm weather and clear blue ocean is a happy place for nearly anyone. It's a bit overrated though (and by overrated, I mean it's too damn expensive for a college student). You can … Continue reading Williamsburg, VA

Iron Rooster in Baltimore

My main goal in life is to be like Bilbo Baggins: Break out of my comfort zone and anxiety prone family to go on an adventure. Also, how can you enjoy any journey without second breakfast, brunch, and lunch? Whenever I go out, I keep that in mind. Half the fun of traveling is eating. … Continue reading Iron Rooster in Baltimore

My Garden

Living in College Park was a constant reminder of what I missed at home; my garden. In the concrete stop between Baltimore and D.C, there was little room to grow anything unless it was at the school. I discovered, a bit too late, about the community garden plots I could have rented. Now I'm home, … Continue reading My Garden
