Wow, I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for three years now.

It all started a few months before my study abroad journey, with my mom suggesting I make a blog so family and friends could keep up. I was hesitant at first, but got really into it quickly.

I started to blog a bit more seriously around this time last year, posting more personal posts and opinion pieces, and becoming even more involved in the community at the beginning of this calendar year, engaging with others and promoting my blog.

I find a lot of joy in maintaining this blog and thank you all for reading, whether you’ve been with me for a week or since the beginning! I’m not stopping any time soon.

I’ve more or less written about everything that has happened to me:

2018 (so far…)

2017 In Review

2016 In Review


Concert index (needs updating, sorry!)

Travel index (needs updating, sorry!)

Alternatively, have a look through my archive and see what I’ve been up to all these years.

Without further ado, here are my top five favorite posts from this month in all categories:

  1. The 25 most incredible things I’ve done before turning 25: I recently published something similar for my 23rd birthday and although it isn’t a competition, this blows mine out of the water! So many amazing things done, both of our lists could fill three lifetimes of adventures.
  2. Best vegan food in Brighton: I’m always looking for more places to try!
  3. A Weekend in Prague: This post is so well organized with great suggestions. I went to Prague during my year abroad with my grandparents and it was nice to relive our time together through this post on the one year anniversary of my grandpa’s passing.
  4. 10 interesting facts about the Galapagos Islands: It’s every conservationist’s dream to visit these iconic islands, I hope to get there some day!
  5. How to survive youth hostels: While I consider myself somewhat seasoned in staying in hostels, my brothers could learn a few things before we stay in one together next week!
