Discover Dubrovnik

As my second Game of Thrones location, Malta being my first, Croatia was everything I hoped it would be. Filled with delicious cuisine, locally produced wine and beer, dainty shops and welcoming locals, the Dalmatian Coast was even more astonishingly beautiful than I imagined. No visit to Croatia could be complete without exploring this extraordinary…

My Roman Bucket List

Being back in the States for almost five months now, I’m finding it difficult to keep my thoughts from Europe.  The hardest to forget is Rome itself, my old home and my favorite city in the world.  Although constantly brainstorming ways to get back oversees, at the moment the closest I can get to Rome…

(a Czech hello) A trip to Europe isn’t complete without boarding a super-sketchy Ryanair flight and Czech-in’ out Prague (feel free to laugh at my hilarious pun).  Although we could only spend two days in this gorgeous city, it ended up being one of my favorite trips, and not only cause I got…

A Weekend in Paris

Ah, Paris.  Or, Parigi, as the Italians say.  Even the 40 degree, cloudy and raining weather we struggled through couldn’t destroy this city’s famous charm.  Late in March of this year, I was lucky enough to snag a €60 RyanAir flight from Rome to Paris’ ORLY airport.  In addition to a flight that cost less…

When in Rome…EAT as the Romans do

Everyone knows that Italy is responsible for some of the best food in the world.  Take it from someone who’s lived there, it’s true.  Although not the place to go if you’re buying into the low-carb craze, Rome has more than it’s fair share of delicious Italian cuisine.  However, sometimes the sheer amount of restaurants…

How to Pack for a Semester Abroad

Four Days in Santorini

No visit to Greece is complete without taking the 25 minute plane ride from Athens to the beautiful island of Santorini!  Notorious for being a honeymoon island, although it’s just as fun to explore with a good friend, Santorini is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the Greek culture while also catching a killer…
