My 5 Packing Essentials

I love to travel. The entire reason I started this blog was to write about my study abroad trip. And tomorrow, I go on another trip to… SAN DIEGO! I am so excited for this “friendcation” and being able to experience a city I’ve never been to before. Well, I’ve been there, but when I […]

York: the loveliest place in the U.K.

Sorry I didn’t post sooner! Wifi at all the hostels was spotty, so I decided to wait to do these posts to avoid headache. We arrived in York just after lunchtime on Monday, June 17. All 14 of us walked to the hostel ( which we were unaware of its location ) with our large […]
