Christmas 2018 in Taos, New Mexico

One of the great things about living in the States again is that we can slowly begin exploring the states we haven't been to yet. America is as large as it is diverse, and my friends tell me that regional stereotypes do hold some truth in them yet. Anyway, during this vacation, I did not … Continue reading Christmas 2018 in Taos, New Mexico

Spring Break 2018: Café Adventures in Cambridge, MA

One year ago, I ventured off to a different continent and spent the entirety of my spring break exploring London, Paris, and More. What a blessing that was! I look back at those pictures and am dazzled by how much ground my two feet had covered. Little by little, one travels far. While I would gladly … Continue reading Spring Break 2018: Café Adventures in Cambridge, MA

Spring Break 2017: London, Paris, and More

In the latest jealousy-inducing episode of my life, I arranged myself a little solo trip to Western Europe, where I spent the all-too-brief week of my spring break in London, taking day trips to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Bath (a 3-in-1), and Paris.

One Perfect Week in Greece: Athens, Santorini, Crete

Before we start conjoining our first week of our two-week Greece and Italy trip, allow me to have a brief fangirl moment celebrating my 51st post: Alexander joins forces with James Madison and John Jay to write a series of essays defending the new United States Constitution, entitled The Federalist Papers. The plan was to write … Continue reading One Perfect Week in Greece: Athens, Santorini, Crete

Summer Planning in Progress: 2 Weeks in Greece & Italy

About three days ago, the parents announced that the Sun family would be taking a trip to Greece and Italy this summer (loud cheering), and that I would be responsible for most of the planning. My sister, Joyce, and I created a Pinterest board within minutes and began grabbing pins from all over the web in a frenzy. But that … Continue reading Summer Planning in Progress: 2 Weeks in Greece & Italy
