  • Budapest!

    Travel Journal from Hungary Budapest, Hungary | Fri Jan 02, 2015

    So, for the 2nd time in my life I have taken off to a foreign land all by myself.

  • Final Post: Ten Things I’ve Realized Coming Back Home

    Travel Journal from United States California, United States | Sat Dec 27, 2014

    1. I have a niece now! I’ve loved coming home to Los Angeles to visit family and hang with my brother’s daughter during Christmas break. It’s only a matter of time before she’s 6’7” and playing basketball in high school. Born four weeks ago, it’s the little things that have changed while I’ve been gone... 2. I’ve missed being able to interact with strangers on the street all the time. There’s …
