Summer nights in Kentucky

There’s something special about spending a semester across the ocean. When I went to England, I left without knowing anyone in my program. And the first two days I didn’t even know where the cafeteria was. (I lived on a bag of trail mix, because I didn’t realize it had set times that it was…

10 things to do in Prague

Prague is best known for its cobblestone streets, massive bridge and beautiful castle. It’s a city full of history, and definitely one that has been popping up on those top 10 “places to go in Europe.”

10 things to do in London

  London is one of my favorite cities, and I am so lucky that I was able to live an hour north of all the action for four months. That meant I got to explore the city on a few free weekends and random days. Each time I went into London, I discovered new things…

Prague Food Tour

  One thing that I love about traveling to other places, is getting to know how the locals live. My mom did the research for this one, and soon found Prague Food Tours. With 6 days in Prague, it was a clear choice that we would have to spend one day sampling all of the…

Hiking into Germany

Europe really surprises me. It’s just so easy to go from one country to the next. In the states, if I drive 4 hours south, I’ll still be in the same state. It’s not as cool.  While my family and I were planning our trip to Prague, we decided to spend one of the days…

Stepping into a Painting

Before I visited Prague someone told me that it was like “stepping into a painting.” and I loved that image. I loved looking forward to that moment.  And let me tell you, Prague did not disappoint. While the temperature was a bit chilly, it was still beautiful. We walked along the cobblestone streets and turned…

Discovering Venice

Sometimes it’s hard to believe all of the places I have visited in the past four months. Venice seems like it was just a dream. There was delicious gelato and amazing pizza slices, gorgeous sunsets and amazing views.  While Venice was a little warmer than England, we still needed to wear light jackets. Our second…

Bibia Be Ye Ye

 “Everything will be alright.” That’s the meaning of one of the songs from Ed Sheeran’s new album,  Bibia Be Ye Yeand one of my favorites.  Last month, I took a quick trip to Venice Italy. Getting there was not an easy task. Before leaving to study abroad I had a list of places that I…

Barcelona rain or shine

It rained in Barcelona when I was there two months ago and it was a bit windy. By a bit, I mean my sunglasses would not stay on my face. One of my favorite memories of Barcelona is getting a breakfast at a little cafe (a croissant). On our beach day though, I convinced my…

Spanish Sun

One afternoon train, a sunset flight and I found myself in the city of Barcelona. A few weeks ago, I also realized I hadn’t been back to the Mediterranean sea since 2012. Which is crazy, because that trip was one of my favorites.  I was reminded why I loved the sea so much last time…
