Poland- European Adventure 2015

And the spotlight is now on Poland. This country was a major stop for me as well while I was in Europe. While in Poland, I visited 4 cities: Krakow, Oswiecim, Warsaw and Wroclaw. Prior to visiting Poland, I have to admit I wasn’t too excited about it. The last time I visited Poland was 2010 and I was in the city of Gdansk. All I remember from that was the rain and the below normal temperature. It was windy, gloomy and the streets were filled with rain water. Obviously, I didn’t have my hopes up going back this year. I was wrong. Poland is an AMAZING country and is definitely worth a visit! There’s a lot to see and do and all the architecture is stunning. Best of all? Everything in Poland is inexpensive. Their local currency is a polish Zloty. The rate for converting a Euro to a Zloty is about…

Germany- European Adventure 2015

Germany was a pretty major stop for me. While in Germany, I visited 5 cities. Frankfurt Rudesheim am Rhein (more of a town) Heidelberg (more of a town) Bonn Cologne Frankfurt is an amazing city, it really is. Too bad the weather was pretty gloomy while I was there. My hotel was right by the river, making it incredibly easy to walk to all the tourist attractions. I first visited the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew, a church that served as a site for the coronation of Holy Roman Emperors  for 300 years. From the cathedral, it’s about a 5-minute walk to Romerberg square, the historic heart of Frankfurt. If you only visit one place in Frankfurt, it has to be this one. You can walk around the square, purchase some souvenirs, admire the Romer, and even enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants in the square. I also…

Paris, France- European Adventure 2015

Hey guys! I just returned from my vacation in Europe and it was AMAZING. The view was great, the food was great and did I mention the view was great? In 17 days, I was able to visit 9 countries and 19 cities. I’ll be blogging about all the places I visited, just in case you guys are ever interested in visiting any of the cities. They were all unique and beautiful, so I definitely recommend paying a visit to any, if you can! Blog posts will be by country, so there won’t be 17 blog posts for you guys to sift through haha. Despite the fact that Paris was my last stop, it’s the first city I’m going to be blogging about because it was my absolute favourite. This is my second time visiting Paris and everything I saw still took my breath away. The last time I visited…

An Adventure Journal

Wanderlust~/ˈwändərˌləst/ a very strong and irresistible impulse or desire to travel the world. This is my last blog post before I leave for my trip to Europe next week, which is why I’ve dedicated it to all things travel. For my birthday, my friend bought me an “adventure journal”, which is a book where you can record all your most memorable adventures. This is PERFECT for anybody who loves to travel and travels often, like me! I just wish I had this book sooner! Most of the journal is filled with pages like the one above. There’s space to write each destination you visited, who you were with, what date you travelled, what you did, etc. There are also lines to write “the best of the best”, such as the best food you ate while you were there, the best attractions, the best places to shop, the best lodging, etc.…

July Reads

Summer readin’, had me a blast. The month of July is almost over, meaning summer is slowly drawing to a close. With the amount of free time I now have, I managed to read 4 books this month and they were all AMAZING. I loved every single one of them. Below are the books I read this month, along with a very short review of them. 1. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli (5/5)  I absolutely loved this book. I thought it was an incredible story of accepting the fact that you are gay and being PROUD of it, rather than trying to cover it up or “fit in.” A lot of the book is written in the form of emails between Simon and this mystery guy whom he is in love  with. The guy goes to Simon’s school and they’re in the same grade, however, he doesn’t want…
