It’s Almost Christmas!

In case you weren’t already aware, it’s almost Christmas! I could spend paragraphs upon paragraphs raving about how amazing snow is, and how cold weather is incredible, also how family and this season are my favorite things… but I won’t (given that I’m sure you’ve heard it from me, or like me already). But just…

Back To My Roots

What does going back to your roots mean? I would define it as doing something that embodies a former version of your present self. What I mean by going back to my roots is multidimensional this week. This whole last year has been a whirlwind of new experiences and being forced way out of my…

Laksa, Salaman Rushdie and Berlin

I wouldn’t use the word momentous┬áto describe this week necessarily, but I almost want to throw it out there, because this week was one of the better ones since arriving in Germany. Living abroad, while having its incredible perks, I have found can be incredibly isolating and lonely. This isn’t to say I don’t go…

It is cold in Berlin.

It is, as I said above, cold (really cold) in Berlin. Somehow, it has already hit 35/45 Fahrenheit temperatures, and it’s barely November! I can hardly believe it and I am in no way prepared for the wintertime! (i.e. did not bring a warm enough jacket) Otherwise, most of my week has been filled with…

Greetings from Berlin

Well, here I am once again moving locations (this time – to Berlin of all places!). Yes, I’m an almost-official Berlin resident until July of 2016… Isn’t that crazy? I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I live in the city that was once the epicenter of the Cold War. As…

Apologies and Food Photos

Dear Readers, My dearest dearest apologies for having been off the radar for over a month now. In all honesty, I am really sorry for leaving you hanging (especially since last month I was really getting into the vibe of weekly blogging). Learning how to live in Berlin takes some effort! So to prepare for…

Deutschland and Yoga Teacher Training

So it may have been a *ahem* few weeks since my last post, but I have reasonable cause for the delay… I’ve been busy. Since the 8th, I completed an intensive 14-hour-per-day Yoga Teacher Training in DC and I traveled to Germany to start my year abroad. Crazy right?

Traveling Alone: Day 1

What follows is the first day account of my travels abroad. And yep, you guessed it! It’s also going to be part of a series where I’m splitting up what I actually do on the traveling and the action of traveling. Because really, they are quite different (at least I think…). So without further ado…
