I recently spent a week in Los Angeles visiting my sister. My vacation days are usually used in pursuit of exploring other countries, but I decided to visit the west coast. Until this trip, I haven’t been further west than Laredo, Texas. During my trip, I focused on the same thing I always focus on. Food. There were a lot of great places to eat and I did what I always do when traveling. Overeating. LUCKY DELI The coolest place was definitely Chinatown. There…Continue Reading “How to Get Fat in Los Angeles”

Francs are not made of chocolate

My trip to Switzerland was different from my previous adventures. The biggest factor being that everything in this country is expensive. Minimum wage in Switzerland is 25CHF.

I wanted to just walk around and take in the scenery until I found something else, but thought better of the idea considering most places wouldn’t open for another two hours. Most places seemed to only serve coffee and pastries. I wanted…Continue Reading “I Decided to Try Something Else”

I Made It to Salzburg

Today I flew from Nashville > JFK > Düsseldorf > Salzburg. It was a long 17 hours, including layovers. I’m pretty sure I was the only non German speaking passenger on my flight to Germany and I nearly missed my last flight because they changed the gate without announcing it. The only reason I figured it out was because I looked up from my iPad to see the gate boarder had left and I was the only one there, other than these two European women….Continue Reading “I Made It to Salzburg”
