Reykjavik

Not to be disgustingly braggy, but I’ve traveled a lot. My mom’s job requires her to go to week-long meetings all over the world for free and, often, me and my sister will tag along. So my family has been all over Europe, and my mom and sister have traveled

Ah, Paris! The city of love, the city of art and museums, complete with evenings dining on outdoor patios and sunny days spent walking upon the river. But what is there to do when the city of love is drowning? I had what I thought to be the unfortunate experience

Washington, D.C.: An art and food capital

With the Fourth of July fast approaching, you may already have that Independence Day spirit in you. The one city where that same spirit is possibly the most evident year round is Washington, D.C.

Here are a few of our favorite things to do in the city.

Barcelona

Beautiful Barcelona

A city ruled by the friendly people, beautiful architecture and incredible cuisine, Barcelona is a hotspot for any Spanish vacation; though Spanish isn’t exactly spoken in Barcelona.

More than just potato farms

In the beginning of this summer I got the chance to visit Idaho with my family. I had never visited and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much.

Ramadan abroad

It’s my last week in Granada. Having been here just shy of five weeks, I’ve been lucky enough to make new friends with some of the most genuinely lovable and perceptive people I’ve ever met. Because it’s currently Ramadan, one of the happiest and most reflective months for Muslims around the
