A Guide to Tamarindo, Costa Rica

I stepped off of the bus that I had been on for the past 2 hours and looked around. I felt like I had walked onto the board game Candyland. It was 8 at night, but everything was so colorful. Lights flashed from every shop on the street that wasn’t more than a floor high. […]

What I Spent in One Week While Backpacking in Costa Rica

After spending a week in Costa Rica, I’ve learned that it’s extremely beautiful, with its wide range of Pacific Coast beaches, day long hikes, and hidden waterfalls. With that being said, I’ve also learned that it can be pretty cheap- and also very expensive (I felt like I was in NY with some of the […]

Why You Should Study Abroad

I said one last goodbye to my family before getting on line at security. “See you in…May,” I said. The words sounded harsh coming out of my mouth. May? I thought. Four months? The longest and farthest I had ever been away from home was when I went to South Africa, and that was only […]

Berlin on a College Student’s Budget

I visited Berlin on an extreme budget. There’s so much to see, so much I want to do and eat, I thought on the plane ride down to Berlin from Copenhagen. How can I pull this off? I managed to spend around $195 during the 60 hours that I was there. I spent the most […]

How to Spend a Day in Madrid, Spain

I stood on the center of Spain, smiling. I pictured myself on a map, at the zero kilometer mark, this is so cool. I was in Madrid, Spain, visiting for a few days in March. Street performers were everywhere, spray painted, dressed up in odd attire, showing off their skills in hopes for some profit. […]

Top Five Things to Do in Ponta do Ouro, Mozambique

On the coast of the country Mozambique is a beach town called Ponta do Ouro. A picturesque, quiet town that can only be reached by jeep or quad due to the surrounding sand dunes and lack of roads. Be prepared to take off your shoes for the entire length of your stay, as I did […]

Rain, Rain, Don’t Go Away

Rain. That was what it did the whole time I was in Bergen, Norway, for two days. But it was beautiful rain. It chilled you to your bone, soaked your feet, and turned the town a shade of gray. I’m sure it would have been beautiful if it was sunny, but when the clouds obscured […]

Hoping to Hop into a Hot Spring?

Visit the hot spring capital of the world, a small town in Iceland called Hveragerði. Never in my life had I thought I would be going to Iceland. Before I knew it, though, I found my 17 year old self on an airplane heading there with my parents after I graduated high school. In July 2011, we […]
