LALA Land

After Vegas, I was Los Angeles bound. My job at Tamwood International Camps was one I will always remember. Working with ESL kids from all over the world was such a challenge, and this wasn’t made any easier by the lack of sleep and crazy hours. However, LA was awesome. We took trips to the…

Dry heat (Vegas)

When I say that Vegas was hot, it is a wild understatement. Vegas was scorching. Whoever said that it isn’t that bad because of the dry heat was lying. It was bad. But anyway, had to get that out of the way. Stopped in Vegas for a week long trip to see my boyfriend, who…

Barcelona means nightlife in Spanish

My last big trip was with the girls to Barcelona! Me, Arianna, Gracie, Nelliann, Liz, Tiff, and Calla all made the trip and had the best time. Barcelona was a vibrant city and the nightlife was a 10. We went to the Sagrada Familia, La Rambla, Park Guell, and our hostel was in the Gothic…

Two out of five ain’t bad

My next day trip was with ESN to Cinque Terre. That day consisted of lots of walking up steep hills to get to some of the most beautiful views. Cinque Terre was also known for its seafood. We had some of the best calamari in one of the cities. We took a ferry to another…

Where is George Clooney?

The next two weekends were day trips. I went with Nelliann to Lake Como for a couple of hours. It was very peaceful and I could definitely see myself spending weekends soaking up the sun on the rocky shores.

Amsterdam, the city of “freedom”

First stop: Cologne, Germany. Final destination: Amsterdam, Netherlands. Amsterdam is known as the city of freedom; however, it could also be interpreted as the city of sin. There were lots of people in the city because of the Flower festival occurring and it was a bubbling atmosphere. We stayed outside the city in an Airbnb…

The French Riviera, my forever dream

The French Riviera was a roomie and Arianna trip. Katty, Idil, Arianna, and I made the trek to Nice, France during a long weekend. The French Riviera was definitely up to the hype. It was glamorous and expensive to match. We took the first day to go to Monte Carlo, Monaco. The lavish lifestyle was…

Venice, I’m going to Gondola school

Venice was another trip with the family. We stayed in a hotel outside of the city and crossed the bridge every morning to get into the heart of the city. It was also crazy with tourists. It was so interesting to see the Gondola rides that have been the inspiration for so many other places…

Roman heat

My family arrived for an awesome week of trips. One of our longer trips was to the capital of Italy, Rome. Rome was definitely the touristy part of Italy. It was a crazy time navigating public transport with my family. Our hotel was located near the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, so that was a…

The Italian Riviera in 24hrs

My roommate Katty, and I decided to take an impromptu trip to Genoa, Italy. Genoa lies on the Italian Rivera. Early that morning we departed to take a bus that would lead to an incredible journey. Upon arrival, we walked around and saw Genoa. Because it was a smaller city, we decided to take a…

Milano has my heart

The last month of my experience, I spent in Milan. I am so glad that I took the time to do that because I fell in love with my host city. I learned and saw so much of the city and got to know more locals, as well as hanging out with my European friends…
