Top 10 Things to Do in London

I’ve had a long-time love affair with London. I’ll never forget stopping over there briefly in college after a semester in Italy. The moody weather, friendly black cab drivers, accessible and dignified culture and (let’s be honest) adorable accents left such an impression that it was the destination I chose for my first solo trip […]

#FriFotos: Windows

I’ve always loved photographing windows. The structure, the architecture… the promise of what view lies outside it. Something about them always has enticed me to whip out my camera and snap a quick shot. And sometimes, it isn’t even the actual window itself, per se, but the way a reflection bounces off of the glassy surface […]

French 101: La Fin

Mon dieu! My French 101 learning experience recently came to an end. After nearly 3 months of weekly classes, I’ll be the first to admit that I am far from fluent.

French 101: My First Step Towards Fluency

Photo via Tourist-Destinations.com Tomorrow, I take my very first class of French 101. Up until now the extent of my French knowledge has started and stopped at the movie “Amelie,” so I am excited and more than a little bit nervous to begin my lessons. Since I have publicly deemed 2012 the year of French […]

Snapshot of the Week: Graffiti in London

London is one of my all time favorite cities. Whenever I have a chance to visit, I go through the same ritual when I first arrive. Fly in early on a Saturday morning, drop off my bags at my hotel, hop on the tube and head to Borough Market to nosh on Kappacasein‘s famous Grilled […]

Best of Florence, Italy: Where to Go, Stay and Eat

In college, I studied abroad in the city that started the Renaissance: the magnificent Florence, Italy. I spent my time there living the good life: wandering the cobblestone streets, visiting markets and museums, sampling gelato from every notable place in town and eating enough pizza and pasta to feed a small village… balanced amongst my […]

Avignon, France: Off the Beaten Path at The Pope’s Palace

This guest post is by Mandy Kilinskis. Every year, over 4.2 million people flock to Vatican City. Some go for the religious devotion, some go for the unique and stunning architecture, and some go for the deeply historical value. If I asked you what other places in the world have the same criteria, you’d probably […]
