When traveling abroad, I try to avoid any chain restaurants, especially American restaurants. The last thing I want to do is go all the way to a new country, and only eat foods I can easily have in my own country. And in my opinion, tasting new foods is one of the best ways to experience a culture! However, there do come times when you realize you’ve only got small change and there are no ATMs in sight, or you crave some sugary, terrible-for-you fast food from home. In times like these, you cave and enter the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts/ Burger King/ McDonalds. Here’s what you’re missing (or not missing), at several of these places in India… Continue reading “Trying American restaurants in India “
Getting here was the only bad part of Greece. Oh… and almost dying on an ATV I guess. Thira is a tricky island to get to. You either ferry or fly from Athens, Greece. We choose the ferry which happened to go on strike for the first time in 10 years. Needless to say, we choose the wrong transportation on that day. After some tears and a very expensive flight we were on our way to…

I came to Croatia with no expectations. We decided to stop here before spending a few days in Greece. I honestly was so excited for Greece that I really didn’t care about seeing Croatia. That is, until we arrived in Dubrovnik…

This week I’m taking you to España. Vamos a…
(1) We stayed near the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona. It is the old city’s center. I walked around these streets for hours before my friends joined me and I loved every minute just exploring without a map or schedule to do. I think it is important to always leave a little time to just discover during your travels. Don’t plan every minute. Continue reading “13 Things To Do In Barcelona, Spain”

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. It’s basically a fact of life. Hot day outside – eat some ice cream. Got a bad grade on your biology exam? Eat some ice cream. Got a good grade on your biology exam? Eat some ice cream. There’s really never a wrong time for ice cream. I would even say it’s acceptable for breakfast, but that’s just my humble opinion.
As a self-proclaimed-obsessive- ice cream-consumer, I’ve searched south Florida for some of the best local ice cream shops.

If you’re a fan of surfing, then you’ve probably heard of Cocoa Beach, the little town that gets to claim itself as the birthplace of multi-crowned World Surf League Champion Kelly Slater. My good friend Lizzie Le, who’s a Cocoa Beach local, wanted to share her tips for those wanting to adventure through this charming beach town.

Teeming with squawking seagulls, salty air, and friendly locals, Santa Barbara is a lively town full of history and stunning architecture, yet far enough outside of Los Angeles to create a relaxing and slower paced atmosphere. I only had about a day and a half to spend in this coastal town, but that was more than enough time to make me fall in love.
Both my sister and I share a love for cooking and baking…and experimenting. My sister has to be one of the most creative masterminds when it comes to figuring out what to do with (at times random) ingredients. Last week we decided to whip up some energy bars. We’re big Larabar fans, so we were looking to make a treat that had a similar taste and texture. Larabars are known for being healthy as well as having minimal ingredients – which is awesome. Some of the bars I’ve eaten have only had three ingredients. Seems kinda crazy when most packaged foods have 20+ ingredients (most of them being chemicals) ! So if you are looking for a super delicious raw energy bar, then keep on reading, because these bars are tried and tested, and pass the “super delicious raw energy bar” food test…if there is a test for that.
