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 ...

How to Stock a Dorm Fridge

Yesterday I tried my best to be an adult. It wasn’t easy, but I made it out alive with a brown grocery bag in hand. I rode the subway back with a Whole Goods bag nestled between my feet and a grin on my face because I could cross another thing off of my week’s to-do list like a real adult! I won’t lie and say that I didn’t get pushed around a little in every aisle or try and say that I didn’t stare at 37 different Greek ...
