I recently checked off my first travel goal of 2019 by spending a long weekend in New Orleans. The city is so unique and has a lot of offer, and I'm pretty impressed with how much I was able to do. So, how do I recommend spending 72 hours in the Big Easy? The First… Continue reading Three Days in New Orleans
We’re now seven weeks into the new year, and I’m currently at home getting ready for my first trip of 2019! At 4:35 p.m. today (yes, today!), I will be headed to New Orleans. I’ve only been once—back in middle school with my family, so I don't remember much—and I’m so excited to return, explore… Continue reading My Travel Goals for 2019
I’ll open with the bottom line: I finally made it to Asia! How did this happen? I’ve been at my current job for about six months now, and I didn’t realize until I started that traveling is a big part of the position. So imagine my reaction when I learned that I would be going… Continue reading Switching Things Up: Thailand

Some possible reasons: I’m lazy. I lost interest. I started dating someone and finally made new friends. I was overwhelmed… Continue reading I’m back!

A year ago, I was sitting at home, wondering what I would do since graduating. 2015 was a transition time for me -- not the best time, but necessary. So what am I up to right now? What am I looking forward to… Continue reading Looking Towards 2016
Günaydın! (Good morning) I’m finally getting into the rhythm of things here in Ankara. I have three classes of about 20 students each. The university gave us Fulbrighters the A+ level students. Contrary to what you might think, these are the students with nearly the lowest speaking ability. So how does that work when I barely know… Continue reading What I’ve Been Up To
This will be my first attempt at blogging, so bear with me. My main goal is to keep my friends and family updated on how life is treating me in Ankara. I’ve read a lot of travel blogs that deal with men and women quitting their fancy (but possibly boring) corporate jobs to travel the world,… Continue reading Just a Little Introduction
