I was so relieved to finally make it to Athens after a delayed flight and literally running through the Amsterdam airport to make my connecting flight. Upon arriving at the President Hotel in Athens, I found my friends that I was meeting. After freshening up we ventured out to Taratsa, a restaurant with a fantastic rooftop view of the Acropolis and Parthenon. I totally pigged out on falafels, fresh tomatoes, pita, and hummus while everyone else also had different meats.
After staring at my bag for over a month and trying to figure out how I am going to have everything I need for 43 days in Europe…I finally took the plunge. I started by gathering everything that I wanted to take, but don’t necessarily need. Then I packed everything I thought I wanted and then removed a few items from each packing cube and tried again. I repeated this until I was satisfied that no space was wasted with useless items.
Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to travel and explore Ireland three times. The first two times I visited while nannying and the third time my mom and I went on an incredible culinary tour. One of my favorite parts about being in Ireland is being around so much greenery and so many kind people.
I recently took a weekend getaway with some friends to Cataloochee, NC. This was my first time hitting slopes that were covered in fake snow instead of real, fresh powder [spoiled, I know].
I am a snowboarder, thanks to my father, but on my last ski trip with my family I decided to ski instead of board. I LOVED it…mostly because I wasn’t constantly falling on my ass, but also because I was able to use two separate feet instead of having them attached as one.
