Winter in Reykjavik is so Beautiful. It’s that snowy time of the year, folks! I can’t help but feel super nostalgic about my winter trip to Iceland. Iceland’s natural beauty is renown among travel enthusiasts, myself included in the mix, but lately I’ve been reminiscing about Reykjavik’s unique and urban beauty. The soft light illuminating the streets […]

So why solo female travel in San Francisco? Solo female travel in San Francisco is incredible. I speak from personal experience. San Francisco is a beautiful action-packed city with amazing hills and views of a sweeping bay. I seriously think San Francisco is the most picturesque city that I have visited in the United States.

There are many advantages of traveling solo! I rave about solo travel on this blog, especially solo female travel, because the experience does truly change your life for the better. I’m a much stronger person today thanks to my independent travels. However I understand that booking plane tickets, reserving accommodation, and actually following through with […]
I loved visiting Iceland in winter. I originally expected dark and bleak weather, few tourists, and very limited activities. My predictions were so, so, so completely wrong. So wrong. Iceland is an incredible winter destination. In particular, Reykjavik for New Year’s Eve rocked my world. Trust me, I highly recommend it, even if you’re normally a sofa […]

Even as a teacher, supposedly a “natural problem solver,” I still hesitate to tackle “large and vague” problems. I get overwhelmed, […]

So, Rachel, You’ve Been Quiet Again I know. I’ve been way too quiet. Two posts in a month isn’t exactly a blogging goal to aspire to. Not only is two posts not a reasonable goal, writing so little also makes me feel embarrassed. I love to write, especially about travel, and know I can do […]
Halloween is almost here! Yay! Who doesn’t adore Halloween? It’s one of my favorite holidays ever. Sadly, my Halloween has been a little quiet. Meaning I didn’t shimmy on a packed NYC club’s dance floor wearing a homemade costume. Not to mention, I’m way too old to go Trick or Treating. Like way too old. […]

You Must Visit Montreal in Fall Fall (or autumn!) is my favorite season. I love Halloween and Thanksgiving. I love red, orange, yellow, and brown leaves. I love the crisp cool air. I love the dramatic twilight skies. I love sweaters and scarves and boots. And yes, I love pumpkin. Alllllll things pumpkin. I just bought […]
