    Science on Tap ~ A Free Happy Hour + Lecture Series

    This past July, my friend sent me a text. "Want to go to a free lecture at the aquarium?" I was in! What I didn't realize is that Science on Tap is so much more than a free science lecture - it is a free happy-hour networking event as well!  The Smithsonian sponsors...

    Raging Taco and Burrito

    I love the city of Decatur. The artsy vibe is amazing and there are a ton of great restaurants. Today, I tried a new one: Raging Taco and Burrito. It's been on the Decatur square for a while, and I was glad to give it a try at lunch time.  It was great to find out that...

    High Museum of Art

    Art is something that brings us together. It makes us stop and think, viewing the world from someone else's perspective. It gives us something to experience together and talk about, delving into deep topics that don't normally surface at the dinner table.  What would...

    8 Hour Layover in Amsterdam!

    Layovers can be tricky. How long is long enough to leave the airport and go exploring? There have been times when I have spent hours inside of an airport, just wondering what the country is like around me. Landing in a new place and not getting to adventure in it can be...

    Rembrandt's Coffee House

    Chattanooga, Tennessee is a wonderful city to visit. Situated up in the mountains, the air is fresh (especially because most of the local buses are electric...and free!) and the people are friendly. Runners and cyclists pass you all the time, and it is very easy to walk...

    Benazio Coffee

    One of my favorite places in Istanbul is Kadikoy. Anytime I would have a free afternoon or Saturday while living in Istanbul, Kadikoy was the place I would head. Their coffee shops, great views, and quiet back streets were paradise for me.  One day while in Rasimpasa,...

    Kadıköy ~ Your New Favorite "Semt"

    "Semt" in Turkish really translates to "neighborhood." Because Istanbul is such a large city, you end up identifying a lot of areas by neighborhood. For example, Beşiktaş is a key neighborhood where many students spend their time, as the food is cheap and there are...

    Rumeli Hisar (Rumeli Fortress)
