    Beaver Creek Conservation Area

    I love living in cities. The hustle, metros and buses everywhere, the abundance of close-by cafes, and easy access to friends; that's where I love to be. But nature...that's a different story. The feeling of taking a deep breath of petrol-free air. The sensation of the...

    A Long Weekend in Edmonton

    Although I call North America my home, before this past week I had never actually traveled to Canada. Isn't that strange, seeing as it is so close?! I think it is very common for a lot of Americans to never go visit our northern neighbors, but I wasn't satisfied with...

    Salzburg ~ Refreshing and Breath-taking

    We stepped out of the train station, a few hours of relaxing train travel under our belts. Coming from the bustling and busy Vienna, we had a mysterious and beautiful view of Salzburg in our minds. The thought of taking a break from the big city for a bit of glorious...

    A Few Lovely Days in London

    The clouds were thick overhead and a cool wind was blowing. Suddenly the overcast sky parted and the sun shone through in its golden brilliance, casting a warm light on the airport below. "What is that?" an airport worker asked in bewilderment, as she stared up at the...

    Shakespeare Tavern

    When I was in elementary school, I went to my first Shakespeare play, "Twelfth Night". Ever since then, I have loved the rhythm of the scripts, the costumes, and the unique humor of these productions. Shakespeare did indeed give the world a beautiful gift in each of...

    Paris ~ Love at First Sight

    A few days in Paris, France is enough to take your breath away. I grew up reading book after book about France, the royal family, and the history of this artistic and extravagant country. From reading of the exploits of the Count of Monte Cristo and the carriage rides...

    Turkish Hospitality ~ How Everyone Is Family

    My first experience of living outside of the United States occurred in the fall of 2013. That semester, I moved to Istanbul as an exchange student at Bogazici University. During those first weeks, there were many parts of life that I had to adjust to, like shopping in...

    Stone Summit Indoor Climbing Gym

    In Atlanta, the weather can be crazy during the summer. One minute, it can be a blistering 90+ degrees Fahrenheit,  and the next minute a raging thunderstorm is on your door step.  This can make it tough to do outdoor activities with friends, but we have found the...

    St. Peter's Church

    On our first full day in the city of Munich, my family headed via the underground metro to see the famous Rathaus (the old town hall), with its playful, moving clock and gorgeous architecture. Across from the Rathaus is an old church, St. Peter's Church to be exact. It...

    Needed: German Words for a Weekend Trip

    This past week I travelled through Austria and Germany, both homes to a challenging and somewhat-rough sounding language: German.  I had tried to learn some common German phrases through the online, language-learning program, Mango, before taking this trip. It's great...

    First Experience in a Turkish Grocery Store

    I walked in slowly, hesitantly. This was all very different to me, and I wasn’t sure what to do first. What to look for. Where to go. My eyes searched around, hoping that I didn’t look too lost, but knowing at the same time that I was indeed just that. I spied an...
