A New Journey

As summer winds down and my incredible NYC internship comes to an end, I find myself embarking on a new journey of sorts. One that’s sure to be filled with its own challenges and stresses, but also extremely rewarding in its own right. That journey I’m referring to is senior year. It seemed so far away […]

Photo Diary { Genoa, Italy }

The diversity within Italy itself is reason enough to love it. It’s a country steeped in history and rich in culture and the arts. Not to mention, it’s culinary credentials are out-of-this world. I spent six years in junior high/high school learning Italian, so this country, its culture, and its people all hold a special place […]

Happiness Is… { Boston Edition }

 A few weekends ago, the 4th of July to be exact, I took advantage of the two extra days off we got from work and hopped on a bus to visit some of my best friends from study abroad in Boston. After spending five way-too-short months in Europe together, the separation anxiety was starting to […]

Dear Geneve

Nearly 5 months, a dozen countries and countless memories later, my study abroad experience has come to a bittersweet end. In the wake of my departure from Geneva and Switzerland, I find myself looking into the distance in search for the Swiss Alps only to be greeted by the flattest of lands that stretches on for miles. […]

The Blue Balloon

For the past week and a half, I have been traveling around Spain and Portugal for Spring Break with some of my best friends from my study abroad program.   With so many stories and adventures to share, I figured it would be easiest to split up my Spring Break recap posts.  Hopefully you’ll be […]

The “Good” in Every Day

Life has a funny way of working itself out sometimes. Some days, it seems most unfair and then others, it leaves you with a feeling of happiness that just cannot be measured.   For me, life today was the latter.   These past few days have been quite stressful. On top of studying for our […]

Dear Prague

Dear Prague,   As my first foray into Eastern Europe, I couldn’t have been happier with my travels this weekend.  Everything about your city has left me in absolute awe.  I arrived on my flight from Geneva early Friday morning knowing very little about your customs and traditions.  However, I have cultivated the utmost respect […]

The New Normal

As my friends are starting classes back in the States, it occurred to me on my walk to class today just how different life has been ever since I arrived in Geneva.  There are many comforts and conveniences that I miss about the US (namely my almond butter and granola!!), but each new adventure brings […]

Neuchâtel

Neuchâtel

“Once in a lifetime…”     Very well said, Kristina- and exactly the same words that I would use to describe this fairytale weekend.  From the beginning of our scenic journey along the shores of Lake Geneva to our delightful crêperie experience to ending our day with a majestic view of the sunset on the […]
