My hectic work schedule does not leave a lot of room for vacations so I promised myself earlier this year that I would dedicate more time to traveling. Since I couldn’t take an extensive trip, I had to come up with a destination that I could go to for the weekend, but still manage to make a mini vacation out of it?

The best part is that I would be leaving the country all while being only a 3Read More →

Trip to Puerto Vallarta

I recently wrote an article about how to plan a spur-of-the-moment trip, which was based on preparing for my trip to Puerto Vallarta.

my trip abroad

For my birthday this year, I decided to take a trip to Europe on a much-needed vacation, to learn new things about other places, and some new things about myself.

Aside from the chill, each city had its own appeal that kept meRead More →
