Charles Bridge  Prague, Czech Republic

  The Charles Bridge connects you to Old Town and is one of the main tourist attractions of Prague. No cars are allowed on this bridge as its cobblestones are reserved for the shoes of locals and tourists alike. In the middle of the bridge, you have a 360 degree view of what is around you. There are bridges both above you and below you and city on either side of you. It's a must see if you are ever in Prague, but with that I have a few suggestions. Avoid going between ...

Kofárna Cafe  Prague, Czech Republic

Tucked away on the quiet street of Zborovská in Prague, Kofárna Café stole my heart. I came across the quaint café on Trip Advisor (a must-use for anyone traveling abroad). I was greeted first by a soft pink exterior and then by a local barista who assumed I spoke Czech (I was flattered, but I know about four words). I ordered an espresso (from Brazil) and found an open table amidst the minimalistic ambiance. The espresso was unbelievable. The wifi worked. I felt very much in my element. I was able to ...

Italy by the Seaside ⎜ Savona, Italia

I have been in Europe the past week or so--traveling through Italy. These photos are from our trip to the seaside in Savona, Italy. We arrived on an overcast Sunday afternoon to a private beach that you can see above. Each lounge chair was accompanied by a matching umbrella to shield us from the sun that finally shone later in the day. It was a picture-perfect scene every time I closed my book for a second to turn around. Vacationing Italians sauntered around the rocky beach: men in speedos or short swim ...

19 Candles

    Yesterday was my 19th birthday. 19 is really such an odd age. At 18, you become a legal adult and you can vote. At 20, you are no longer a teenager. At 21, you can legally drink alcohol. At 19, you are sort of in this transition period. Nothing monumental happens upon turning 19 years of age. But here I am, writing to you, having existed on this earth for 19 years and one day. I do, however, think that a lot has happened between my 18 and 19 years of ...

Brunch and Ensemble: Friend of a Farmer

  In line for brunch at Friend of a Farmer, we spotted a rustic red-colored building laced with vines. A wide stairway and romantic gate led us to huge doors that I one day hope to use as I enter my home. It was 75 degrees in New York and I found a dress in my closet that resembles frayed denim that everyone so loves these days (not excluding myself). I haven’t discussed this particular bag on my blog much, but it is the Coach Ace Satchel and it fits ...

A New York Winter Day

It has snowed twice in New York City. One day was a blizzard and the other day didn’t even qualify for cancelled classes. I almost feel bad when I am back home and relatives and friends ask how I am surviving an East Coast winter because, well, I’m doing pretty well and some days the temperature here in New York was warmer than in San Francisco (for that, I apologize). That said, my winter coat came in the mail the other day and I have worn it almost exclusively despite ...
