November in a NutShell

November is one of my favorite months here in New York but as anyone living here will tell you, it flies by fast. Since I’m not currently traveling like some of my fellow bloggers – Leave Your Daily Hell, Wake and Wander and theplanetd just to name a few – I’ve been keeping myself preoccupied with all that New York City has to offer a wandering bohemian.

Here’s what I’ve been up to the past few weeks:

My First Print Feature: Yes, the day has finally arrived! Before primarily focusing on travel, much of my former writing was in Fashion so when a friend of mine approached me about writing a New York Fashion Week recap for MyLifeStyle Magazine‘s First Year Anniversary Edition, I jumped at the chance. Here’s a little screenshot of my name in print! The magazine is printed in both the US and in Colombia, South America. A PDF version should be available soon for those of you who want to read more about the Latin Culture in New York. The magazine party took place last night near Columbus Circle.

WeHostels launch Party: Also the same night of the magazine party was the launch of my boyfriend’s new and highly-anticipated company, WeHostels. The platform provides a social aspect for travelers booking their hostels and beds for their next trip. Instead of simply seeing a hostel’s review, you can actually see who will be in the hostel during your exact travel dates. For solo travelers looking to connect with other solo travelers before landing in a new country, this is an ideal platform. The launch took place at Hostelling International and drew in more than 300 guests. For more information on WeHostels, check out their recent feature in Mashable.

Megan Learns Spanish: After two trips to South America and Mexico, it’s slightly embarrassing that I had not picked up the Spanish language. I remember learning Spanish in Fifth and Sixth grade but that was a long time ago and we pretty much only mastered numbers, colors and animals. Since I have a fascination with Latin American culture I finally decided to do something about it and signed up for classes with Instituto Cervantes here in New York. I’m about mid-way through the first session and I’m finding myself thoroughly enjoying the classes. One perk of freelancing is that I can sign up for courses scheduled during the middle of the day, so an added benefit is having a small class and more individualized attention. Take a look at the outdoor courtyard!

Every so often, I write about a destination I haven’t been to. As much as I love recounting trips and sharing my experiences here on Bohemian Trails, I also love to dream; dream about people and places I’ve never crossed paths with. That’s the traveler in me, the explorer that believes in the magic of

Want to Work Remote? These 5 Degrees Will Help

Back when I was starting college, I had very different ideas of what my life would become. For years, I planned on being a child psychologist and was pretty content with that. Then something happened; I studied abroad, landed a job in the fashion industry and everything changed. I started to realize that I wanted
