The Importance of Noticing Details and Being Present

Details are so important. I live my live surrounding them. As an anxious person, there's nothing more important than details. As a traveler, nothing should be more important than details. But sometimes it's really really hard to notice details when you're travelling. It's super easy to get caught up in looking at all the big... Continue Reading →


Nostalgia // Vienna

I just keep picturing myself walking through Volkgarten. Or sitting on the steps of the Kunsthistorisches. Or walking home in the rain with my groceries. Or strolling along the river. I almost cried when I came across a picture from outside my Ubahn station. I can remember all the sights and smells, and the same... Continue Reading →

Where I’d Rather Be, Vienna

Vienna is like my European home-away-from-home. (Hopefully one day I will simply call it home.) I've been thinking a lot about it lately, dreaming of being there and doing all the things I love. Getting pastries and coffee from the bakery, going to the Kunsthistoriches museum, speaking German. Standing in line for €3 opera tickets, people... Continue Reading →

A Farewell to My Favourite City

Don't take this as a goodbye, because I'm definitely coming back- hopefully to stay for a long time.... Continue Reading →

Amoung those 6 towns were Munich and Königssee, and Hallstatt. Hallstatt is a charming little town sandwiched between mountains and the Hallstätersee. It's... Continue Reading →

Flora & Fauna & Royalty

Vienna's history and buildings are amazing, but this week we've been seeing a lot more flowers. A lot more. Of course, everything here has historical/cultural significance, so even those flowers tell some kind of story. Kahlenberg, Vienna Woods Vienna basically has everything, including mountains and a forest. We went for a short jaunt up one... Continue Reading →

Vienna Week One

I've just realized today that I've been posting pictures of things I've seen and random bits of writing, but not actually what I've been doing. I know my friends from back home would like to know what I've done. As this is a study abroad trip, most mornings are spent in class and then the... Continue Reading →
