By the time you read this, I will have gotten on a subway and a train to go to the airport and fly off to Denver for the weekend. In fact, I’ll probably already be there. Anyways, I splurged and since it’s only for two nights I’m staying at an actual hotel (!). It’s going to be a nice little weekend away where I’m assuming … Continue reading Packing For a Weekend in Denver
Everyone always writes about all the best touristy things you should do if you’re in New York City so I thought I’d flip that and write about the best things to do that aren’t touristy (or at least not too touristy).

Happy Monday, fellow wanderlusters! I wanted to let you guys know that I opened an Instagram account for my little blog over here. I realized I was spamming all of my friends with travel pictures and ‘New post!’ entries and even though I was resistant to it, I did it anyway. Do the things that scare you, right?

And then I remembered that the chill … Continue reading Chilly Memories

I started spotting a few interesting things along Riverside Drive recently so I decided to walk about 50 blocks from the beginning of Riverside Drive (around 63rd Street) to Morningside Heights (where I live) and see what I could see. Here’s what I found… At the base of … Continue reading A Walk Along Riverside Drive
Since I’ve moved and resettled again, I’ve been looking to make up for my lost trip to Reykjavik. Two nights ago I was thinking about the cities that I could easily visit in the US for a weekend and see most (or all) of it and Denver, Colorado came to mind. The company I work for just opened a studio there, so I could visit … Continue reading Itching to Travel Again!
I’m back from my hiatus! I’m all moved and closed and own my apartment so life is settling down a bit. It was a little hectic there for a moment. Did you miss me? Packing and unpacking all of my belongings made me a) realize that I needed to get rid of a ton of shit, and b) brought back memories from all of my … Continue reading A Collection From Abroad
