  • Back That Month Up | Chiang Mai
    Oh, no! We’re halfway there.Having Hanoi as our first stop in Asia was, in my opinion, the scheduling equivalent of getting a pack of all orange Starbursts — it was the best possible scenario for everyone involved, obviously. After four weeks of learning to love the madness of Vietnam, I felt like I ... read more

    This one is going to be short, guys. And that’s a good thing. I arrived in Sofia early Tuesday morning and IMMEDIATELY felt more relaxed. It’s amazing how certain cities will just do that to you (I’m looking at you, Prague). I took this week to decompress from my last ... read more

    The past week has been an incredible experience- I knew Morocco was beautiful and crazy and hectic and hot, but I truly didn’t even know the half of it. The country is GORGEOUS. Like eye opening, stunning, don’t-know-what-to-do-with-yourself gorgeous. From mountains, gorges, deserts, and valleys filled with luscious forests, to ... read more
