Stockholm is one of those cities that appeals to just about every type of traveler. Culture enthusiasts have a slew of museums to choose from while foodies can indulge in traditional cuisine with a modern twist at every meal. While Stockholm has somewhat of a bad reputation when it comes to the exchange rate, it’s still
I’ve written about London neighborhoods before and that’s because there are so many fabulous ones to explore. During my semester abroad, I spent any free moment I had simply wandering around London. Similar to New York, I found that each area had its own distinct personality and that’s not the case in every city. This
The two hour drive from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes National Park was a gloomy one. The skies were cloudy from an early morning rain and it seemed like the closer we got to our destination, the gloomier it became. Almost as if the skies were playing a little trick on us, the clouds began to

Ireland may have its fair share of rainy days but my trip was filled with sunshine, which is why I’ve decided to dedicate an entire photo post to the sunshine filled skies of the Irish countryside. City Escape – one of Dublin’s most scenic parks. It’s perfect for a quick break from busy city life.
It’s been nearly five years since my first visit to Ireland and of all the places I’ve been this year, Ireland never stopped whispering in my ear. Even though I consider myself American, having been born and raised just outside of Washington, DC, I actually have dual citizenship with Ireland and so naturally I feel
My third time in Ireland definitely proved to be my lucky charm. I was able to experience the Irish countryside while still enjoying city life in Dublin.
