Since my trip to Japan (holy food paradise) in 7th grade with my mom, food has played a major role in my travels. If I didn't know about the cuisine (rare) I made sure to do my research to find the "dish" of the region. My latest trip to Greece has been no different. I … Continue reading Eating Everything: Corfu
Everyone’s Irish on March 17th
When I made the oh so difficult decision to move to Leeds I knew that there were experiences and trips I wouldn't under any circumstances miss out on. One of the many on my list was to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Dublin. We flew into Dublin the night before St. Paddy's, and flew out … Continue reading Everyone’s Irish on March 17th
I've been MIA, my bad. But it's been for excellent reasons. Life in Leeds has pretty much been what I hoped for. The whole package. School is rad, soccer bod is back, social scene is fun, and my involvement at work has gone above and beyond expectations. Below is one of the blogs I wrote for … Continue reading Doing Things.
What Are You Packing?
In honour of the Full Moon and the Full Moon party (to the humans making the trip, bless your souls) I've decided to post a blog I wrote for a different website that hasn't been used. Clearly this isn't what I would normally write about. Beauty/Makeup/Fashion is way out of my realm but I think I … Continue reading What Are You Packing?
With its cool weather, Dalat is an amazing escape from the heat you can't seem to escape in Ho Chi Minh City. It's also an insanely cheap trip - a sleeper bus costs 200,000 Vietnamese Dong, which is about 10 USD and a night at a Hostel is around 5 USD. I stayed at DaLat Central … Continue reading Da Lat
Leeds International Beer Festival
This past weekend was the Leeds International Beer Festival - luckily as I was in the taxi driving into the city for a night out, I saw 'LEEDS BEER FESTIVAL' in ginormous red marquee lights. I knew I HAD TO GO (Michael, my roommate says I have to go to everything and I must say he … Continue reading Leeds International Beer Festival
N. Vietnam Photo Blog
Another well overdue blog post, but better late than never. In May I went on several solo trips, and Northern Vietnam was one of those trips! In seven days I went to Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, and Sapa - it was an amazing first solo trip. I'm so proud of myself for pushing myself and … Continue reading N. Vietnam Photo Blog
What To Do In Ubud
Before I go into detail about what to do, where to go and what to eat in Ubud I'm going to give you my suggestions on the most basic, yet essential parts of the trip - where to stay and how to get around. Where To Stay There really is an endless amount of places … Continue reading What To Do In Ubud
June 22nd was my best friend, Tawni Martino's 23rd birthday. For the first time in two years I was actually in the country to celebrate with her. HELL YES. I'm pretty sure the girl has had her birthday planned for a few months because when I asked her what her birthday plan was, she immediately knew … Continue reading HBD TAWN
Eating (Everything) In Indonesia
The food in Indonesia was phenomenal. Specifically, my favorite meal of the day, breakfast. Smoothies, toast, jam, 'pancakes,' it was all amazing. I didn't indulge in lunch too often because we were out touring quite a bit, but dinner was divine. I'll have a few blogs coming soon about a few of my favorite restaurants, but … Continue reading Eating (Everything) In Indonesia
