Menorca 2017

Recently I took a quick break to my favourite little Spanish island. I love to travel and explore different places but sometimes I also love to just chill out and shut off the busy world for a bit.

A Nice Holiday

Day 1: Place Garibaldi for a glass (or two) of the local rose, amused by Pierre la fou (who seemed to be a regular guy who goes about his business lounging on the pavement in one of the small streets with bars – forgot to take a photo), a walk along Promenade des Anglais at… Continue reading A Nice Holiday

Kefalonia, Greece – Day 2: Assos and Myrtos Beach

So for my last trip, I intentionally took a longer… Continue reading The Layover: Amsterdam

Barcelona: My First Solo Travel

Traveling solo sounds intimidating to a lot of people, me included. But I decided I wasn’t going to let my fear get the best of me during my first trip to Europe in 2010. After several days of traveling with Tess in some parts of the UK and Paris we parted ways. She went back… Continue reading Barcelona: My First Solo Travel
