The Rialto Market in Venice.
A charming little wine bar in Corniglia, Cinque Terre, Italy. The walls were decorated with construction paper hearts!
My first travel article has been published! -
It’s about how to be more European in the USA. Check it out if you’d like! :)
Clowning around in the Vatican. Is that allowed?
Because it is only when you are carrying your whole life on your back that you think, “Wow, I demand a lot of stuff to survive a single day!”
And the first time I have ever thought to myself, “I have too much stuff,” instead of, “I need more stuff!”
Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italy
A change of scenery!
Backpacking through Cinque Terre, Italy.
kena-nicole asked: Hi there! I'm Kena, nice to meet you. :) I'm studying abroad in Greece in the fall (Athens!), and your video made me super excited for my own trip! Do you have any advice? How was it going without knowing any Greek? I'm in the same boat haha; so far, all I can do is recite the alphabet.
Yay! Nice to meet you! Wow how exciting! I am sure you will love Athens. It is the best. Gah I have like 80 billion hang out place suggestions for you already but maybe as the time draws closer I will send them to you haha.
I didn’t know any Greek but by the end I felt pretty confident with it and I think I was proficient enough to get around. If you can take a Greek class there, do it, and if you find a nice English speaker at the grocery store or another place around town ask them for any words you need (I always asked the kiosk guy down the street, he taught me more Greek than anyone else!). I would say just don’t be afraid to dive in, speak with a terrible accent, and try as hard as you can. Greek people will love that!
Reunited with a certain boyfriend of mine in Rome… It has been so fun to travel together! I have heard that when you travel with someone you learn if you really like them or not, so I guess I have learned that I really like him!
