Food First – Moscow

Dear Reader, It’s time that we talk about the food in Moscow. I am here in Moscow with a group of Americans and Russians. Some of the Americans, many years my senior, have experience in Russia dating back to the 80s, when Russia was a part of the Soviet Union. All my American colleagues that […]

Walk While You Can

Dear Reader, This morning I took a walk through Moscow. It is the end of September and the weather can be described as comfortably autumnal. The sky is gray and the air is cool, but not uncomfortably so. In Boston before I left, the weather was sunny and 60-70 degrees, however, here in Moscow the […]

The Weary Traveler

Dear Reader, I have made it to Moscow at long last and with no problems to speak of. In fact, I had a pretty enjoyable flight. After a not-so-fun layover at JFK (read more here), other than a slightly late departure, the rest of journey was pretty good. I guess this owes to the fact […]

OMG JFK

Dear Reader, Things can get overwhelming pretty quickly. Have you ever been to the JFK airport? I swear to you it is just a busy as the New York City itself. So many people, so many noises from the thrum of machinery to the cackles and shouts from the masses. I am traveling today from […]

Wednesday Wanderings

Dear Reader, I woke up this morning feeling hungover from a difficult conversation I had last night. Dehydrated and sleep deprived, emotions rather than alcohol were the sources of this headache. My head was swimming in the things that were said, the things I wish I would have said, and the things I wish I […]

Until Next Time, Scotland!

Dear Reader, My lovely Scottish adventure has come to an end. In this post, I just wanted to share some of my peculiar observations about Scotland that you may not find in your Google searches of the country. Irn Bru You see this orangey, liquid concoction above? It’s not orange soda, but an Irn Bru […]

Highland Holiday

Have you ever heard of a wee Scottish town called Oban? Coming from the Scottish Gaelic word meaning “bay,” this little town sits on the western coast of the Scottish Highlands. On our little Scottish adventure, my boyfriend and I spent seven short hours at this touristy destination. In this post, I would like to […]

Edinburgh Excursion

Dear Reader, When my boyfriend and I chose Scotland as the destination for our vacation neither of us really knew anything about the place. We resorted to a flurry of last-minute Google searches that were all along the lines of “where should we visit in Scotland?,” “best city to visit in Scotland?,” “which is better […]

Girl on a Train

Dear Reader, Trains are your friends, well, at least they are in Europe. While on my laptop in Glasgow I started feeling FOMO (fear of missing out) creep in as I scrolled through all of the “best things to do” in and around the city. I thought to myself, how silly was I to spend […]

Faraway Friends

Dear Reader, I am now in Glasgow, Scotland on vacation. There is so much to do and see! This city is so full of culture, history, and life, I am totally unsure where to start. I also have two friends who live in the area. These two lovely ladies are friends from college whom I […]
