November Reflection (2018)

Each month, I set aside time to reflect on the previous month: memorable moments, lessons I learned, how I spent my time, how I’m different, who/what I’m grateful for, improvements for next month, and goals to work toward. I try to be intentional in my personal development, and posting each month is a way to keep…

Staying in a Rifugio

When I thought of Italy, I imagined Roman ruins, cute little villages, and vineyards as far as I could see. What I didn’t image, were the beautiful, dramatic mountains. I honestly had no idea Italy had any real mountains here. But I have fallen head over heels in love with the Dolomites, the Italian Alps….

A Travel Guide to Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes National Park

I’m a list maker, so naturally when I came to Europe, I made a list of all the places I wanted to visit while over here (I mean, aside from just writing “everything” on a piece of paper). Plitvice Lakes National Park was high up on the list (or the waterfall park as I still can’t…
