#IHEARTCANARIES: Heading to Tenerife & Giveaway!

In just about a week I’ll be sunning myself on the beautiful island of Tenerife. It’s one of the Canary Islands – Spanish territory off the coast of Africa. The landscape is rugged, sporting volcanoes and fishing villages alongside miles of beaches with luxury resorts. What more could you want in a getaway? The best part is the whole week I’ll be staying at an oasis with great friends, off the grid and living...

Parks, Paintball and Pedal-Powered Tours: Outdoor Activities in London

Time for a #TasteofCatalonia!

My awareness of wine is dismal. Although it’s slightly improved over the last decade (mostly because my budget helps me avoid the hooch) I still am stupidly new at various blends and qualities. In fact, last time I was in the Catalonia region of Spain, my then-boyfriend-now-husband and I only visited the Freixenet cava factory. While fun for new fans of the sparkling stuff, we definitely missed out on tons of other amazing wineries....

Having the Perfect House Date: The Expat Move and Apartment Hunt

What the very first thing every expat must handle when they move abroad? Figuring out where the hell to live. I vividly remember the first six weeks my husband and I lived in London. We found an Airbnb to crash at in Battersea that was fine, but the size of a closet. The apartment might as well have been on the moon, because it took forever to acclimate where I was. Who knew what a Battersea was, and why was the walk to Clapham so...

Confession of an Expat Hypochondriac

Something subtle always pushed me into action. Maybe a little pain in my abdomen, a short period of not feeling hungry or maybe just a never ending cold. I’d fly over to Google and start searching what was wrong. Was it cancer?! Oh no, do I have a debilitating thyroid problem? No, it has to be an allergy. A life-threatening allergy that will leave me bedridden in a couple days. I know everyone goes down the internet rabbit hole when...

Iceland in the Summer vs. the Winter

Not many landscapes in this world are so polarized as Iceland. This is especially true as the seasons change and the entire environment evolves. A few winters ago, I conquered the icy wasteland of this seemingly hermetic country in January. While it wasn’t what you see online – sweeping northern lights, rolling green meadows and warm waterfalls, it was an adventure all the same. Visiting Iceland in the winter has its perks, I’m sure...
