    Third stop: South Station

    The last train stop following Back Bay is called South Station. This is the stop where my dad would get off every day to get to work at the World Trade Center, so I tend to associate this train stop with my father. I especially love this area because of what surrounds...

    The best methods to learning a language

    Whether you are an Erasmus student or simply a world traveler, you already know the great importance of learning a new language (or even two or three). Not only does speaking more than one language help you to order food at a restaurant in another country, but it...

    My lesson learned in Miami: Have money for Uber.

    Huge, posh, and not my cup of tea One of my three least favourite cities in the United States is Miami. It doesn't come in last place, however, so I can somewhat tolerate it when I go there to visit. The other two on my list are New York and Los Angeles. Ironically,...

    Warak arish (stuffed grape leaves): the healthy comfort food.

    You may have heard of the Lebanese warak arish as a different name: The Greeks refer to them as Dolmades, the Turks call them Dolma, and in English they are simply stuffed grape leaves. The Lebanese words warak arish literally mean "vine leaves", with warak meaning...

    A small city in Germany: Wiesbaden.

    Madrid: Pizza

    I am extremely fond of pizza (and pasta); Italian food is probably something which I can eat every day and not get tired of it. However, it has to be good, and when I say good, I don't mean any Domino's, Pizza Hut, Papa John's or Telepizza. Out of all these big pizza...
