Over this past year I have been fortunate enough to travel to six countries across Europe. I journeyed to the far reaches of Djúpivogur on the West coast of Iceland to the hot sands of Palma De Mallorca in Spain. I learned not just about each region's respective culture and history, but also a ton about how to make the most out of my travels. Below are my three top tips to maximize value gained from traveling abroad.
It’s wintertime again. Even though the weather is colder and the days are darker the changing seasons can open the doors to charming date ideas.
It’s November 2020. My depression and anxiety are at a new peak. The serotonin rush of Trump losing the presidential election has worn off and the reality that terrible things are still happening is re-settling in.

I personally think that soccer is the best and most exciting sport. I remember one day specifically when my family and I were watching the Seattle Sounders play at what was formerly Qwest Field, now named Lumen Field. I remember standing for the entire 90 minutes cheering for the team I had looked up to my whole life.

The weather app lied to me. What I thought was an overcast prediction turned into an 85 degree roast. Either way, I didn’t think I’d be standing outside the library for four hours trying to get people to write on this damn whiteboard.
