Road Trip to Cadiz

We embarked on a road trip from Estepona to Cadiz. The bad: The locals really hype up Cadiz for its white sand beaches and Atlantic ocean waters. The roads to Cadiz from Estepona were a tad brumby and motion-sickness inducing. Firstly, despite local hype about Cadiz tuna and beach towns we struggled to find an…

Luggage Forward International Shipping Review

Have you ever tried shipping your suitcases rather than checking them in at the airport? I used Luggage Forward to ship five suitcases to Spain from the USA. PROS: Excellent customer service Fast shipping ahead of deadline – My suitcases were scheduled for the first of August but they actually arrived only 3 days after…

San Diego Road Trip

Check out my San Diego road trip pictures in this post. The road trip began at 1 am and we arrived from the Bay Area to San Diego at around 10:40 am. We stopped two times during the trip. I recommend starting a California road trip at midnight because there was little traffic for the…

Updated Travel Carry-on

A wheel went missing from the carry-on I got last year. This is my updated long-term travel luggage carry-on. I purchased a vegan leather travel bag from Sole Society final sale for about $34 bucks. The inside of the bag has three pockets and a stylish black and beige print. The bag has an extended…

An Ode to California ~ Planning My San Diego Trip

Have you ever moved somewhere and find that you fell in love with the location? I first fell in love with California almost ten years ago. It happened when I flew into Los Angeles International Airport, LAX, at night. My family moved from the East Coast across the country to the West coast with little…

Photo Journal of Trip to Guatemala

Three years ago I traveled to Guatemala for service learning during my undergraduate studies. I’ve realized it was a disservice to not have posted these pictures on any of my social media. My next post will overview some of my favorite places to go to in Panama. My family is from Panama, and I know…

Howth Day Trip & Fish and Chips Review

This morning I visited Howth for the first time with new friends. I recommend taking a trip there from Dublin because it’s a fast journey via DART (train) and supremely scenic. The water is a gorgeous blend of turquoise and dark blue. Together, we walked the Cliff Path Loop and then went to The Bloody…

Box Braids – Third Time’s the Charm

I’ve gotten box braids with extensions done three times now. The first time I got the style installed was in North Carolina. The stylist made the braids skinnier than I anticipated and used *gasp* 20 packets of hair! I loved the results of this first experience. The hair was not too itchy and the quality…

Fish and Chips Review Series: Part One

This fish and chips series will include reviews of fish and chips restaurants at various price points and locations. I love fish and chips when its done well, and Leo Burdocks at 4 Crown Alley, Temple Bar, Dublin do just that. True, Temple Bar is a tourist area, but the building is so picture-ready! That location’s…
