In Bloom at The Huntington

I just returned to Brighton from a whirlwind visit home in Southern California. While I barely survived the summer heat, I made time to explore new places (yes even in my own home), which included a first-time trip to The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. It was a perfect place to spend a

Last Call in Dubrovnik

13 May 2017 Due to the previous night’s adventures, I overslept from all the drinking. But because I drank copious amounts of water, I did not wake up with a hangover. Take that, 30! However, I missed my chance for an early morning hike up Mount Srd, which ended up being fate since it was

Vienna: Day 2

9 May 2017 Another full day of adventure. I left my Airbnb early and headed to Café Neko, a cat cafe — these seem to be trending. Don’t get me wrong, I love cute kitties, but where are the puppy cafes? I’d like to see a puppy or doggo cafe before I die. If one

Vienna: Day 1

8 May 2017 The second location I visited during my Journey to 30 was Vienna, Austria! Mostly because the train ticket from Prague to Vienna was under €25. #Bargain I walked to my Airbnb from the train station and met with one of my hosts (Shout out to Ivan and Neva!). Ivan was really helpful
