Why I’m Glad My Flight was Cancelled

The more I think about it, I really can’t overstate how lucky it was that my European flight was cancelled. When You Find Out Your Flight is Cancelled My boyfriend and I had been on a month-long European exploration, and were set to return home from Portugal with a layover in Paris, before returning to New York. It felt bittersweet for such a grand adventure to come to an end… but then again I did need clean socks. I did have time to climb to the top of the …

8 Places in Iceland that are a Photographer’s Dream

I recently road-tripped around Iceland for about a week, and it was unlike anything else I’ve ever done. It’s hard to believe until you see it for yourself, but as you drive down the highway in Iceland, literally everywhere you look there is a new fascinating, breath-taking sight. Another mountain, a 100-ft waterfall, lava fields, moss-covered gorges. Nevermind the impossible-to-pronounce names or ever-present sulfur smell in geothermal areas… Iceland is 100% worth the visit. **It’s worth noting that my road trip was limited to the …

The Swiss Alps: A Day at The Matterhorn

It began with a cloudy afternoon, months back, spent flipping through European vacation guide books in Barns & Noble… One particular photo caught our eye: the isolated, striking rocky pyramid rising through the sky that is The Matterhorn. Even just the name is enough to leave you intrigued. The Matterhorn is a classic peak — one perfectly shaped mountain sitting proudly among the Swiss Alps. It reaches 4,478 m (14,692 ft), and does not disappoint. A striking view of the Matterhorn… a famous Swiss Alp …

Top 4 Things To Do at the Finger Lakes

Oddly enough, the first time I heard of the Finger Lakes was in high school watching an SNL skit – The Lawrence Welk Show, starring Kristen Wiig (you can watch one of the skits here… random, I know). That video certainly didn’t teach me much about the lakes of upstate New York, and if it would have, I imagine it would have made me think it too strange a place to visit. Fast forward maybe 8 years, and I found myself planning a trip to the …

Balancing Work & Play

I joined the corporate workforce full-time a year after college. I was working about 45 hours/week with an hour commute every day, as an environmental consultant. As I had neared the end of college and felt pressure set in to choose a livelihood, I had landed on environmental consulting as my dream job. So I was of course excited to finally get an offer letter! This 8-5 lifestyle was one I had seen all around me, and assumed I would step into. I was brought …

Feeling Inspired by Lady Liberty

I recently found myself in Jersey City with a free afternoon, driving by signs for Liberty State Park. The New York skyline had me feeling inspired, as it dawned on me that this would be the perfect opportunity to visit the Statue of Liberty…  Having grown up on the east coast, I have frequented NYC plenty, but never quite made it over to the Statue of Liberty itself. I’ve seen it from car rides and airplane seats, but knew I wanted to make the full …

I studied Environmental Science at an Ivy League univeristy and have worked as a Geologist & Naturalist. 

I’ve been a vegetarian for over 10 years, and have struggled to remain so while traveling through Southeast Asia. 

During my personal travels, I love to pack light and take only a carry-on, even for 1+ month-long trips. 

I started travel blogging back when I was hoping to break into the travel industry…
