Life Update

Hey everyone!

I feel horrible about this unplanned break. I didn't realize how much work and planning would go into my mom's trip, so that's been preoccupying me. But at least we're now together and having the time of our lives!

Keep an eye out for my upcoming posts about my recent trips to Morocco, Spain, the Brittany region of France, and more. For now, check out this post I wrote for Dame Traveler about my favorite French city--Tours!

Thanks so much for your understanding and, as always, for your continued support. See you all soon!

Berlin, Germany

Seeing that I love World War II and Cold War history, a trip to Berlin was necessary--especially after I found 98€ round-trip airfare.

An On-Board Manicure?

Would you ever consider getting a professionally done manicure--on a train?

Nice, France

My friends have always raved about Nice, and now I see why. Even though my friend Rachel and I went in January, it was still a quintessential beach city with Provençal flair--and I wouldn't have had it any other way.

My Railroad Bookshelf

I don't know about you, but I do all of my best reading while on a train. Trains are relaxing and often many hours long, so I've read some pretty good books on board. In the spirit of travel, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite books that I've read while sitting on a train!

Bruges, Belgium

For the final installment of my Belgium trip, I present you with Bruges! With sprawling canals, artisan chocolate shops on every corner, windmills lining the city walls, and a 150-year-old brewery, Bruges is nothing short of adorable.

Ghent, Belgium

In addition to our day trip to Antwerp while we were in Brussels, my friends and I spent a half day in Ghent. As we were only there for a few hours and just wandered around the city (it was New Year's Day so almost everything was closed), I don't have many tips. So, I've put together a photo diary for you to showcase Ghent's beauty and charm!

Antwerp, Belgium

While my friends and I were staying in Brussels, we decided to do a couple of day trips, including to Antwerp. I knew nothing about Antwerp before going there, but I absolutely loved it. For those of you who don't know, Antwerp is Belgium's second-largest city (but its most populous), and the largest city in the Belgian Flanders region. So why not visit?

This was my third Birchbox France (second time I unboxed it for you), and I wasn't horribly thrilled with it. Watch the video below to hear my thoughts on the products I received!
