Auschwitz

I want to start by saying that I will be describing an experience from a tour I took backed up with internet research to fact check. I’m also aware that people who actually experienced this are relatives of the survivors and those lost and may potentially read this. I want to think of this as…

How I Spent Christmas 2017

There tends to be a lot of pressure that happens around the holidays to attend every party and try to see all one’s friends and family. I personally don’t feel that pressure and chose to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas on an island in Colombia. After our boat adventure and arrival to Isla Grande, we…

The Journey to Rosario Islands

There is only one way to get to Isla Grande from Cartagena and that is by boat! You can reach the island of Baru by bus but you would still have to take a boat to Isla Grande. We ventured down to the port to buy our ticket for 40,000 COP with a 15,500 COP…

Back to Colombia

First off, recovering from 16 hours of jet lag is no joke! I landed on Thursday morning and had to unpack and do laundry and repack to catch a flight on Saturday to LA and spend an early anniversary with my boyfriend! But you can’t keep me in the country for long when I have…

Maui!

Where does one start after 8 days in Maui? With a story I guess. A few years ago (20) I met some amazing girls in high school. 20 years later we are still friends and decided on a girls trip to Maui. A few years ago (3) I met this girl in Rome. We became…

My Unplanned Stop in Aveiro

Seville

Time for one last stop in Spain before the parents head home and I move on to Portugal. Seville is mostly know for having the largest Gothic cathedral in the world and third overall largest cathedral in the world as well as the Alcazar. I was in Seville in 1998 at the lovely age of…

Mallorca = Perfection

Many people are fully aware of the island of Ibiza and all it has to offer. For those who don’t want $30 cocktails and crazy parties, there are the islands of Mallorca and Menorca that offer a calm and relaxing seaside environment. The sunsets were truly amazing and not something that should be missed. I…

Let’s go to Europe

Europe…a continent consisting of 50 countries with about 225 different languages and 28 different currencies. Where do I even start planning? How do I decide where I am going? These are questions I ask once I decide that I am heading to Europe again. This trip started with a plan to meet some family friends…

Mission Impossible III has nothing on me!

If you have watched Mission Impossible III then you know that Tom Cruise ends up in Shanghai catapulting off buildings and then escaping and running along some canals to save his fiancée. Those canals are actually about an hour outside of Shanghai in a little place called Tongli. Today started with a visit to Suzhou…
