Barcelona

Sophomore year of high school, I anticipated my fourth period Spanish class with Señorita Hillen. The advanced class mastered simple conversations and focused on Spanish Culture. Upon flipping through slide shows about Gaudi, I urged to visit Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, and other famous houses designed by Spain’s greatest architect. With Barcelona ...

Greece

Thursday, October 31st For the past two decades, Halloween has been my favorite holiday. A marathon of classic thrillers and costumes, a party-worthy duo. Though I managed to stream “The Shining” with friends, the day-long cruise to Corfu, Greece killed the Halloween spirit. But I couldn’t complain. We were on a cruise ...

Bolzano

Biking Bolzano With included spas and breakfast buffets, Mom did alright booking the Stadt Hotel in Bolzano. Wednesday morning started with mimosas, strudel, and fresh fruit before our bike ride. What a ride it was. We passed hundreds of Italians biking and jogging on this calm, cloudy morning up to ...

Stuttgart Day 2

Strolling Around Stuttgart Allowing myself to wake up naturally, I figured I would have enough time to stretch out on a morning run before breakfast. This thought dissipated when I rolled over to see the screen on my phone read: “10:39 A.M.” No time for a run, I’ll eat instead. ...

Antibes

No Suit, No Problem Ending our French exploration in Antibes, we tumbled out the bus exhausted Sunday morning. The views along the port was not as impressive as Nice and Monaco, though our perspective changed once we entered the village. The Antibes market holds several textile stands in front of the ...

Eze and Monaco

Nice, France

Very Nice Waking up early to shower from the overnight bus ride, I finally felt refreshed for our 10AM Old Town walking tour through Nice. Starting along Place Massena, we looked up at Jaume Plensa’s “Seven Statues”, representing the world’s joining communities. These sitting figures line the square and lead ...

Dublin

Ladies and Gentlemen At 10:10 we departed the hostel with our tour guide David. Before starting, we stopped at a hotel to pick up more tourists. Waiting at the bar, a few men were drinking a Guinness. It wasn’t even 11AM… I love the Irish. My roommate and I hunted for an iced coffee ...

Pompeii

Ruins Sunday morning we departed from the hostel to visit the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. For £20, we could purchase a wristband for a guided tour throughout the preserved town. I unknowingly bought the wristband on Friday, thinking it was my pass to cliff jump. However, I would have ...

Positano

Italian Style After noticing I awoke in the wrong hostel, I cleaned up and carried on. Around 11am, we walked a hefty trek to town. Before laying out, I bought a much needed cover up. In the store, the sweet Italian woman insisted on taking in my dress. “I sew with my ...
