How do you walk like Parisienne? The simple answer: don't care and do whatever you want. The walking style in Paris is very chaotic and stressful to witness; it could be likened to the style of New Yorkers (although I've never been to NYC and only have other people's references to fall back onto).

By now, everyone has heard, read, and commented about the new fiasco that United Airlines has faced: the death of a puppy in an overhead compartment bin.

Is it the artistic glamour that is found all over the city? The calm that washes over you as you sit in café, sipping a café au … Continue reading The City That Calls to Me
There are many songs that bring you back to a specific place and time. Patio Lanterns reminds me of warm summer nights spent in a small town outside my city with the smell of fresh cut grass fragrantly filling the air; anything by Backstreet Boys and O-Town and I’m instantly 13, again; and then there’s … Continue reading The Importance of a Travel Playlist
