Have you spent your spare time this winter season training to climb Mount Kilimanjaro? Well I have…not.

I have spent the last few weeks exploring my neighborhood,…Continue

Dobry Den! That is Czech for “hello” and it was one of the only phrases that I could manage to correctly pronounce during the summer of 2010 when I lived in Prague, Czech Republic. While in Prague I discovered its charm and quirk, which make it unique from other large European cities, and in my bias opinion what makes it the best city in Europe to…Continue

This addiction cannot be cured, rather only maintained by a Pinterest board of dream vacations, a subscription to National Geographic, and cable television in order to watch the Travel Channel. And now…Continue
