Continuing my Work + Travel series, I wanted to share what a day working on the road actually looks like for me. No two days are ever alike (which is part of while I love it so much) but I... Continue reading

Just one of the things I miss about Paris are my frequent trips to Merci. You might know it as the shop with the little red Mini out front. It was about fifteen mintues from my apartment and I would... Continue reading

In contrast to my trip to Copenhagen, I fell in love quickly with Prague. I visited back in July and my next trip there will have to be in the winter - I hear it's a completely different (and enchanting)... Continue reading

Hi Rhoni! Unfortunately I don't remember. I just chose one outside the Grand Palace, there are tons of restaurants lining the streets over there. I don't think you can go wrong! Have a good trip!

Thank you! No Portland guide going up before your trip but there are a lot of recommendations posted on my Instagram and also blogged here: - enjoy your trip, it's one of my favorite cities!
Hi Krystyn, I have been in the dark about the coolness of podcasts for so long that the only way I found the ones I listen to has been through other people posting about them. Twitter or blogs have been my resource, but you can definitely search through iTunes. I really like the ones on Heritage Radio Network. there's a huge variety to try out. Anne Marie also has a great list here, if any of these sound interesting to you:
I'm quite late jumping on the podcast bandwagon but have started listening to them more + more while I work. I wanted to share five of my favorite episodes that are somewhat travel related with you today. They all happen... Continue reading

Back in August I had about half a day to explore the city. I knew exactly what I wanted to do: a design hunt. I was on the hunt for some great inspiration in one of the most creative cities.... Continue reading

Hi Chloe, I say long term trip because it was a long term for me - the most I am usually spending in one place is a week. I definitely felt like a local and not a tourist because I was able to take my time to get to know the city, rather than just hit the touristy hot spots. I made friends and made the city feel like a home. The post is titled that because they are tips for anyone who is looking on taking more than just a vacation to Paris. A post about actually moving to a country would be titled something completely different. You can check out my friend Stephanie's blog, she's moved to Italy for three years, so perhaps that'll be more helpful for you: I also recommend checking out some of the books I've mentioned on my reading lists, The Art of French Eating, Paris My Sweet, and Paris to the Moon. Those authors all made a move to Paris for at least a year. And maybe this is your chance to start a blog and put that helpful information out on the web for others to find. Bon voyage!
I tend to get very attached to parks. They beome like friends to me. In New York, it was Madison Sq Park. We had a special friendship. That was the place I would escape to just to hide away from... Continue reading
