It’s been almost a month since my trip to Ottawa and I finally finished sorting through all the pictures! My friend Sandra and I wanted to go somewhere we’ve never been to for a weekend trip (Friday to Sunday) and we decided to go to the capital of Canada! Traveling with her is always a fun time because we like to do similar things when we travel, and we catch up on each other’s lives : ) We had three full days in Ottawa and it was definitely enough time to see the city, not including the countryside of course.

Williamsburg is a neighborhood in Brooklyn and is easily accessible from Manhattan via the L train.It is known for its hipster vibes, so my friend Tennley and I spent a day there to explore the neighborhood.

We shared both dishes so we could get a bit of sweet and a bit of… View Post

I learned a lot about packing a carry-on from the various business trips and other fun trips.

Let’s get into my tips! 1 USE AN EXPANDABLE CARRY-ON I love my marble suitcase by Calpak because it is expandable, which means that you can pack more! When I go on a trip, I try to not expand it on the way there to restrict the amount of things… View Post

I adventured to Toronto, Canada two weekends ago to visit two of my best friends from high school. They asked me what I wanted to do in Toronto and I said “eat and hang out with you guys.” And that is exactly what we did! So let’s see what I ate in Toronto : ) Thursday Aroma Espresso My latte came with a piece of chocolate. Enough said. Why don’t more coffee shops give free chocolate? I actually walked into this cafe because it had wifi, but I ended up enjoying my latte and worked from Aroma that day. Cacao… View Post
