MIAMI MAMI

Typically when I travel, the purpose is to experience exotic food, beautiful culture, and incredible architecture/nature, but my intentions for Miami was simply to help throw Halu (my best friend and sister-in-law) the best bachelorette party ever. There was six of us total and although most of the long weekend was spent heavily drinking, we…

Over to O’ahu

About a month prior to my departure, I was catching up with an old friend at a restaurant in Santa Barbara. At the time, she was working for a travel company that organized trips for recent high school graduates to various tropical destinations. Every summer they send their employees along for three weeks to help…

Embark to Barça!

After an amazing summer studying abroad, I left Roma for Barcelona. Two of my friends from back home landed in Barcelona that same morning and were patiently waiting outside of my terminal. A bit delusional, the three of us eagerly rushed to our hotel on La Rambla street in the heart of Barcelona. We checked…

Sono innamorato di Venezia

Ever since I was twelve years old, I have dreamed about going to Venice, Italy. I saw the movie The Italian Job and I absolutely fell in love with the city. The Italian Job is still one of my favorite movies – Charlize Theron, Aston Martins, and Venezia – What more could you ask for? I saved my favorite Italian…
