Summer Weekend Getaways

London, UK Amidst studying for final exams, a mini break was much needed, so Max and I hopped over to London for the weekend. We stayed with my friend Kaley and her boyfriend in Islington, and certainly made the most out of the 36 hours we had together. Advertisements

Berlin: First Impressions

I’ve lived in Berlin for six days now, and I’m pleased to say that the uncomfortable flight was absolutely worth it. Wow Airlines is truly something else. The price point in unbeatable, and now I know why With a total of six checked bags at $70 each, we spent an additional $420 on luggage. Although, shipping boxes to Germany is twenty times that, so while I complain, Wow still was the most affordable option.

Thailand Part 2: Best of Ko Lanta

As promised, my favorite spots on Ko Lanta are here! Noon Sunset Viewpoint Restaurant, Kantiang Bay Deliciously fresh Thai food, the tastiest cocktails (and good wine, which was particularly difficult to find throughout Thailand), friendly staff, and the most breathtaking sunset view make Noon my favorite restaurant that we frequented on the trip. The view is stunning — the terrace-style restaurant is situated on a cliff overlooking Kantiang Bay — and the Thai food is to die for. My favorites were the fresh veggie spring rolls and the seafood curry served in a coconut (totally had to break my veganism for that one, over and over again).

Palazzo Chupi: NYC’s Pinkest Building (ARCHIVE 2013)

You can expect to see the unexpected in New York City; people and buildings worthy of second glances. I regret not taking a picture of the man dubbed Chandelier and his friend King Charles V…or was it the VI? Chandelier had metallic dreadlocks that he habitually spray-painted gold, and King Charles was a wandering man with nothing but a rocking horse and a portfolio of amateur photographs. I purchased a King Charles original print for $1, and he kindly signed the back with a personal message: “I like pizza”.

Thailand Part 1

Skipped a season or two, but now seems as good a time as any for a new post. So much has happened since last I wrote (February?), but I’ll try to keep this short-ish and Thailand-centric and share a bit more of the past few months in later posts. Every time I’m inspired to write a post I’m convinced, or rather hoping, that the inspiration will last and I’ll finally get this whole blog thing rolling. Here’s to hoping.
