This week, the theme is “sunset”. Sunsets are really an amazing thing and when I travel, one of the things I try to do is […]

Weekly Photo Wednesdays: Bridges

Every Wednesday, 7 photos along with a short description revolving around a self-chosen theme. This week’s theme: bridges Ok, so I’ll admit that the bridges around the San Francisco Bay Area inspired me to do this theme. However, I don’t have a photo of a bridge from the area in this series (oops!). With the […]

[on the road] Goodbye for now, Brighton.

I think my time in Brighton has officially come to an end. I thought it did when I left early October, but I got the chance to return to go to my graduation and see many of the friends I met there and the places I frequented. As I walked towards the beach as the […]

2012: My year in travel

Where in the world was Victoria? 2012…what an amazing year! It will likely go down in my books as one of the best years ever. I couldn’t have even imagined the fun I’d have, the things I’d learn, and the lifelong friends I’d meet when I decided to attend school at the University of Sussex […]

Murals of Belfast, Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Belfast is a very interesting city, the capital of Northern Ireland, a group of 6 counties on the island of Ireland, but a part of the United Kingdom. It’s a city affected by decades of “the Troubles” and a still present divide between nationalists and unionists, between Protestants and Catholics. We took a black cab […]

Penny Lane, Liverpool, England, United Kingdom

 Gosh, it has been a while since I’ve last blogged! This past weekend I visited Manchester and Liverpool. I love the Beatles, so a day trip to Liverpool sounded like a great idea. We visited the Beatles Story museum, and took the Magical Mystery tour around Liverpool to places like childhood homes and schools. One […]
