Serenity in the City: London Wetland Centre

A few months ago my husband and I discovered a little bit of London that doesn't feel like London at all! The London Wetland Centre, just a few minutes' walk from the Hammersmith Bridge, feels like an entirely different part of the country - it was absolutely serene. This place is now at the top...

Where do the women of London shop?!

I've lived in the UK for 3.5 years now and still have so much trouble shopping. Doesn't it seem impossible to find normal, professional and classic-style clothes that suit you without dishing out basically your entire paycheck each time? It is a game of extremes. You either have to settle for flimsy, cheap, mass produced,... Continue Reading →

Getting to know Edinburgh through stories

Sometimes, when I am too lazy to learn about the history of a place I'm visiting, I feel like travel is a bit wasted on me. I start to take all the buildings and streets for granted. There's no meaning in them for me. Sure, at first when you begin traveling things are exciting just... Continue Reading →

A scenic photo tour of the Scottish Highlands

I would've kept delaying visiting Scotland if it wasn't for my friend E! I think because Scotland feels so close to my current home (London), I've taken visiting it a bit for granted. Later, later...I can always go there...later. However, E was passing through Europe from the US, and we had the perfect opportunity to meet up... Continue Reading →

Our rainy honeymoon in Iceland

As long as you invest in proper... Continue Reading →

What we spent on 8 days in Iceland

It is commonly known that Iceland is pretty expensive - £20 bowl of soup type of expensive. So because of this, and because it is 2017 and J and I want to spend our money more thoughtfully so we can travel more, we did something we hadn't done before. We created a detailed budget for this trip,... Continue Reading →

Video: Vibes of Copenhagen at night

My talented 16-year old brother makes really awesome travel documentary videos, and has made one of Copenhagen at Christmas time. This is great to watch to get a vibe of the city at this time of year. (Everything is SO HYGGE, I love it. I am obsessed with Hygge, as you may have noticed.)

A long weekend in Copenhagen

Over a four-day weekend in November J and I got out of London to experience Denmark's famous Hygge, in Copenhagen. Visiting Copenhagen has been a bit of a dream for the last year, and the 'happiest country on earth' did not disappoint. It was cold, windy, and got dark by 4:30 PM - but none... Continue Reading →
