While studying abroad in Prague, I traveled to Zurich to visit a friend for the weekend. Needless to say, I absolutely fell head over heels in love with the Swiss city. Hopefully my pictures will help show you why:

While studying abroad in Prague, I had the pleasure to make my way to the famous German city of Berlin. Here's a sneak peek at what I saw:

Duomo di Milano: If there is one thing you must do in Milan, it's see the Duomo. Its Gothic greatness is home to thousands of statues, hundreds of figures, and more than a hundred gargoyles! Buy a ticket for €2 to enter the cathedral and visit its museum,...

Making your way over to Prague, but not sure how to spend your time? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. After studying abroad in Czech’s charming capital, I compiled a list of my favorite spots and sweets. So what are you waiting for--let's expLaur!

It’s no secret, I love writing. I even love photography. But video? To be honest, I don’t have much experience in that field. So I decided to change that.

Slovenia wasn’t even on my radar. No, not at all. It just kind of happened–and I’m oh so glad it did.

I had quite the trip, quite the trip indeed. A trip, I’d venture to say, most Americans would never even think of taking in their entire lifetime, let alone at age 21.

In the yellowish, orange world outside my window, rays of sun seep through the trees’ bare branches. It’s 4:00 P.M., and I have two more hours on this train.

On the weekend’s agenda: England. A place I hold near and dear to my heart. A place I haven’t seen since 2...

For those who know me, it’s no surprise:  I’m a travel bug. It’s both a blessing and a curse– but mostly a blessing.


But a travel bug is only one way to describe me. I’m also a passionate writer and photographer, an ambitious student, dog-lover, and a cake decorator in-training.
