Photo Essay: The Best of June 2015

June was a mess. I was really looking forward to June, but it was a messy month. My financial situation (too broke after May travels), my social media channels (too neglected), my hair (too long), my apartment (too dusty), my thoughts (too much going on) — everything was pure chaos. I thought May had had its […]

Love, It’s Complicated

I know this is a strange way to begin a travel-related blog post (especially when you have the real-life dating experience of a sandwich), but lately, I feel like a jealous ex-girlfriend. My first love and I have drifted apart. And I’m slightly heart-broken. A few years back, we were on the same page about […]

Highlights from a Weekend in London

Three years ago, London had caught me completely off guard: I had come to see the places that I had been familiarized with through all those countless English textbooks, but hadn’t expected to fall so hard for the artsy hipster London, the pretty stoops, and, oh — the coffee. Back then, I kept thinking that […]

Coffee Stories from Jordan

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with coffee. I’m addicted to a level where I need five cups of coffee in the morning to be able to leave the house. Whether at home or on the road, coffee is my daily fuel, it’s my favorite thing to photograph — and I also strongly believe a country’s coffee culture […]

Photo Essay: The Best of May 2015

I feel like being a little too redundant with starting off this monthly recap with the same cliché I used for my April wrap-up, but it just sounds so adequate this time around as well: May was a month of quite a few ups and downs regrading life, weather, and emotional states. But if writing monthly […]

How to Avoid Tourist Crowds in Florence

Florence is easily one of the most touristy places in all of Europe. You can’t blame people for picking Florence as a must-see destination in Italy though: It’s an absolutely gorgeous city and it’s a dream to visit — for anyone who loves art, architecture, history, food, and scenic views. Florence is the essence of what […]

Photo Essay: Impressions from Luxembourg City

To be honest, I had no real reason to go to Luxembourg. Usually, I book trips to places with famous museums or libraries or medieval churches I want to visit, but none of those things called me to Luxembourg City. Back in February, I had been a little frustrated with winter and just randomly booked a […]

10 Things that Surprised Me about Jordan

Looking back, I had no idea what Jordan was going to be like before I boarded my flight. I had tried to google some of the places on our #GirlsGoneJordan itinerary, but in the end I traveled to the Middle East with little expectations, ready to be surprised. And Jordan most certainly surprised me — […]
