The Ireland One

As I wrote in my last post, I was so sad to leave the city that I had called my home. But despite all of my attempts, I left my flat, tears in my eyes, and headed to the airport. The tears didn’t stop until I looked out my window and saw my new home […]

The One Where We Went On Spring Break pt. 2

After a week of living solely off of cheese, bread, pasta, gelato, and red wine, we said goodbye to Italy, packed up our memories in our suitcases (surprisingly mine fit even with a broken bag and Ryanair’s shady luggage policies), and headed to Greece. Athens They say that there are two kinds of people, the Greeks, […]
