How to Hygge

My favorite part about Copenhagen wasn’t something you can physically go to see, but a feeling you have while you’re there. Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t, but the feeling of hygge is something I came to realize the city of Copenhagen itself possesses. Hygge doesn’t have to be something you adopt or a […]

Don’t forget to fika

Stockholm, Stockholm, what a charming city. Blue skies act as the perfect canvas for vibrant, detailed architecture and rich sunsets that ignite the city. Sweden felt like a return to civilization after trekking through the wilderness of Norway. We were ready for some refined coffee shops and strolling through galleries, which is exactly what we […]

Preikestolen

Dusk snuck upon us as we sat in the Lilland Hotel in the Preikestolen Village, sampling beers and munching on olives with multigrain toasts. It had been a long day, and we could hardly muster the energy to head back to our bed and breakfast in Hundvag. I wanted to get some thoughts down on […]

a Rendezvous in Oslo

Ah, the journey that is traveling. I came quite the direct route to Norway. Something like Boston to Lisbon, to Munich and then to Oslo. I was so grateful to myself, upon hearing that my connecting flight closed their gates as I was hustling through security, that I had spent the extra $35 on flight […]

The UK has so much to offer aside from its standard, tourist drawing cities. (but if you want to hear all about how much I adore London, go check out “Things to thank: London”). The countryside is quite beautiful, sprinkled with unique small towns filled with culture. If you’ve read your fair share of nineteenth […]

Iceland is known for having the most beautiful women and the most barren lands. As we drove down a long, winding road the landscape seemed strikingly dark from the absence of trees and prevalence of the rocky terrain. As we road on we got glimpses of blue shores meeting small coastal towns. We were headed […]

When I look back on my trip to France I think about playing my grandma’s favorite poker game, follow the queen, as the two of us sat in the sunbathed courtyard of the Inn we were staying at in the countryside. For about 10 days my mom, step dad, grandma and I explored France, from […]

The first thing that comes to mind as I look back on my trip to Costa Rica is all of the vibrant colors. From the bright orange house with a purple painted living room that I stayed in to the colorful fruit filled markets and lively people that roamed them. As outsiders in this vivid new […]

51.1657° N, 10.4515° E: Germany

Oddly, February was the perfect time of year to go to Germany. I resided on the third floor of the Zarda’s home in Istein (outside of Frankfurt) for close to two weeks. The small window overlooked fields that remained empty as the winter came towards its end. The first morning brought a surprise as I […]

Things to Thank: London

Dear London, I’ve been thinking about what to say to you for quite some time now. When we were first introduced, I didn’t know what to expect from you. The only thing I did know was the importance of savoring every moment of being with you. I lived in a tiny dorm style flat that […]
