Happy Anniversary!

Two years ago today, I had the crazy idea of starting a blog to chronicle my travels through Israel and Europe. My first post was entitled, “Expectations,” and reading it now brings a smile to my face. My life has changed so drastically since that post was shared, and if you’ve stuck around since the very beginning then I’m sure you’ve seen my transformation yourself. I’m so … Continue reading Happy Anniversary!

I Moved!

Well, the day has finally come! I have officially moved out of my parents’ house in the valley and into an apartment in…West Hollywood! I am now living with my awesome friend Maria (who has made quite a few appearances on this blog, and who will definitely make many more)! We are still in the “unpacking/making the apartment ours” phase of moving, so stay tuned for … Continue reading I Moved!

Where I’m Going Next!

It has been over 14 months since I have traveled abroad and over a year since I have left the state of California. I am way past due for a fun and exciting adventure outside of my Los Angeles bubble. As much as I love LA, my urge to explore other cities has been very strong as of late. Since I’m finally in a good place in my job and have the means (read: funds) to go somewhere, I have planned my next vacation! Continue reading “Where I’m Going Next!”

My Bucket List

I stupidly gave myself the work task of creating trip itineraries around the world. I say stupidly not because it is a bad idea but because it is giving me major wanderlust and I just want to travel to all of the places I’m researching.

As social media and marketing manager/director/whatever I want to call myself, one of my duties is to find relevant posts and/or pictures and post them to the company sites. On Monday, I posted an article titled “56 Travel Bloggers Reveal Their Best Bucket List Ideas,” and each of the 56 picked their top 3 things they want to do before they kick the bucket.

A Life Update

Hello followers! It’s been 4 months since I returned from the journey of a lifetime, and unless you’re my mother (hi mom), you probably have no idea what I’ve been up to. Well, I’m back in beautiful LA, and I’m fully employed! I’m the Marketing Director for…(drum roll) a travel agency! Pretty perfect, am I right? Life has actually been going really great, and I … Continue reading A Life Update

18 Days Back: Final Thoughts

What a crazy adventure this has been! I’ve been home for just 2 and ½ weeks and it feels like my trip happened months ago. That was the longest I’d ever been away from home, and I don’t think I’ll ever go away for that long again. Not that it wasn’t an amazing experience, because it was, but I just got so exhausted, mentally and physically, that the thought of doing that again drains me.

Here are some of my reflections back on the trip.  Continue reading “18 Days Back: Final Thoughts”

12 Days to Go: Expectations

I have just 12 days left until I embark on what I hope will be the adventure of my lifetime. Where exactly am I going, you may ask? The holy land, the land of milk and honey, a place I am excited to call my home: ISRAEL. For those of you who don’t know already, or who have somehow stumbled across this blog randomly, I will be spending the next 6 months abroad. 5 of these glorious months will be spent in Israel, and the other month (or longer, depending on my mood) has yet to be determined.
