Read To Travel

The Best Reading Spots in London

One of my absolute favorite activities to do while traveling is read a good book.   Consuming my current read in different spots all over a city or town is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a new place. I lived in London for four amazing months. On days when I would explore by myself, […]

Eating Like a Local at Prague’s Lokál

We entered a loud, crowded, male-filled beer hall.  I had just reunited with my good friend Mary Kate, from whom I had been separated for almost two weeks. Having chosen Lokál because of a recommendation from the people at her hostel, we had no clue what to expect.  Were we supposed to seat ourselves? Or […]

The Art of Keeping in Touch While You’re Abroad

Traveling to a new place hits you with a gust of excitement and endless views, scents, and tastes to stimulate your senses.  However, while you’re eating tredlnik in Prague‘s Old Town Square or hiking into the Irish clouds, your friends and family at home continue to live their daily lives.   Adventure sometimes makes it […]

Relaxing in Vienna: Hotel Pension Lumes

Five short minutes from the Stephanplatz U-Bahn (subway) stop hides Vienna’s Hotel Pension Lumes on a quaint side street.  I arrived in Vienna utterly exhausted from three fully packed days in Budapest.  Clouds rested over the city and the cooler temperature invited me to exchange my sundresses and shorts for jeans and a big sweater for the […]

Unbeknownst to much of the world, Ireland has a native language preceding English that many […]

Essential Budapest: Budapest for First-Timers

Budapest has been one of my dream destinations for the past several years for no other reason than its mystery, exoticism, and location in the heart of Eastern Europe.  In reality, I knew nothing about the city or the country of Hungary before going there.  Much to my surprise and delight, Budapest turned out to […]

I Want to Spend the Rest of My Life Reading Books in Beautiful Places

My primary drive behind creating this blog is because I love to travel and I love to read. My main goal in life is to spend the rest of my life reading books in beautiful places and recording those experiences.  I’m always looking forward toward my next adventure and seeking out the best spot to […]

Quick Getaway: Amsterdam

The decision to go to Amsterdam was made within about 30 seconds four days beforehand.  Being the most spontaneous trip I have ever taken, I did not plan very much ahead of time in terms of what to see and do.  Still, the “Venice of the North” did not disappoint.  Traveling either alone or in […]

The Importance of Studying Abroad

1. You get to make another town or city your home If you are like me and you went to a university a short distance from where you grew up, you have really only had one area to call home your entire life.  Moving to a new country allows you to truly call a new […]
