Top 5 – Hong Kong

Yet again, I managed to turn a work trip into a pretty amazing vacation, after I was accepted to present at a conference in Hong Kong.  I knew I had to jump at the opportunity to present internationally for my career, but also to take advantage of visiting another country or two in Asia (more […]

A Fall Day Away from NYC

New York City is the best, but sometimes a city break is an absolute necessity.  During the summer, a beach day is a nice escape.  But fall is a perfect time to explore the hiking trials and cute towns upstate, along the Hudson River. Beacon, New York and Storm King Art Center Storm King Art […]

Southern Charming Charleston

It’s been a busy summer and now that things are finally setting down, I’m back to the blog.  In addition to my annual vacation to my family’s lake house, I was also lucky enough to go to Charleston, South Carolina in June.  I’ve always wanted to go to Charleston, so I was excited it when […]

Top 5 – Prague

Prague has been number one on my bucket list since college. It sounds ridiculous, but ever since I watched the movie, Chasing Liberty with Mandy Moore (a part of which took place in Prague), I had to go.  Years went by, and for one reason or another, Prague just hadn’t happened yet.  But last year, […]

Traveling the Czech Republic

Prague has been number one on my bucket list for years.  I can’t even describe how excited I was to plan the trip, let alone set foot in the city.  It was a surprisingly emotional moment for me when we arrived, because it was something I had looked forward to for so long, and it […]

Top 5 – Salzburg

I have been dying to go to Salzburg forever. I have always wanted to do the Sound of Music tour and twirl on the hills.  I figured Salzburg would be an ideal stop on my bucket list trip to Prague since it’s so close, and it almost didn’t seem real that it was actually happening […]

Austria has always been a dream vacation spot of mine.  I knew it would be gorgeous from the pictures I have seen and I couldn’t wait to explore myself.  Because we had limited time, and the Sound of Music tour was at the top of my bucket list, we chose Salzburg as our stop in […]

Traveling Germany

Germany is a beer drinker’s paradise.  It’s a huge country with tons to see.  Because we only had a few days to spend, we decided to only visit one city, and we chose Munich.  Geographically it made sense for our trip as the other two stops were Salzburg and Prague, but also I had heard […]

Top 5 – Munich

I had never really had a huge desire to visit Germany.  But when planning my bucket list trip to Prague, Munich just seemed to make sense as a stop.  It is geographically close to Salzburg, our other definite stop, (more to come on those) and made traveling between cities pretty easy.  We made Munich the […]

Traveling London

I’ve been lucky enough to visit London three times now, and have thoroughly enjoyed every trip.  It’s definitely someplace I could see myself living at some point, as there is so much to see and do.  This time around, I went to visit my friends Clodagh and Kyle, who recently moved to London from New […]
