Prague + A Part of WWII History That I Never Knew

    0
   Prague...I Love You!I've never meant those words as much as I have this month. This city. This architecture. This history...I vibed so hard with this place. Is it touristy? Yes. Are the people periodically less than friendly? Yes. But damn, I just loved it. And there was so much to love! I legitimately can't wait to tell you about it!The Best Public Transit EVER....

Sticking Up for Salt Lake City

    0
Ahh Salt Lake City. The HQ of Mormonism and land of endless salt flats. My Dad often has to work in this area and Salt Lake City (SLC) is a drivable distance from the small town where my Mom grew up. Because of this, the Kent family has spent a lot of time in Utah over the last few years. Even so, when my family...

The Prague Blague… see what I did there?

    0
I wanted to skip writing a post about Prague. My feelings about the city are complex, and potentially controversial (I didn't love it... eeeek), and part of me wanted to just put it behind me as I start living the Serbia life.But writing these posts about each month really has helped me process my experiences, and hopefully has given you (yes, you, all 4 of...

Why I Didn’t Love Prague

    0
Maybe it is because the city is hotter than hell, maybe because there is no A/C, maybe because we came from Lisbon, maybe it is because miss my family or maybe it is because I do not like working from 2pm-11pm…but Prague is just not my favorite destination. I know. I sound like an over-travelled brat. I was punching myself the whole time thinking….people LOVE...

Determining what to pack for long term travel is really challenging. You have to be prepared for every activity and every weather scenario.I first heard about a capsule wardrobe when I was studying up on what to pack for Remote Year. At the time I thought it was a crazy excuse to not go shopping, which is not something I wanted to be a part...

Things I Miss About The USA

    0
I've been traveling around Latin America and Europe for the past eight months, and absolutely loving it most of the time. So far I've been exposed to SO many new experiences, ideas, people, languages, foods and more. While that has all been invigorating and exciting, sometimes I find myself missing certain things that only the good ole US of A can provide:#muricaWheat Thins: Yes this...

Lisbon: Tiles, Tapas & all the ocean vibes

    0
   I must have a thing for seaside cities...Seriously. I loved Lima. And I loved Lisbon too! Something about being near the water just makes me really really happy. Though there were definitely some big differences between the two cities, they still are among my favorite stops this year. Though, you can probably tell, I was just pretty happy with everywhere we've gone this year...

Take me to the beach!

    0
During our last week in Bogota, a large group of us took a trip to the northern part of the country to visit the Colombian beaches. I went with a few friends to the small island of San Andres for a few days and then met the rest of the group in Cartagena. The island of San Andres is actually geographically closer to Nicaragua, but...

Beautiful Bogotá

    0
Our fifth month of Remote Year was spent in Bogota, Colombia. Upon arrival here, you could tell that this city was entirely different than Medellin. We had quickly gone from the rainforest-like climate to a cooler, mountainous atmosphere in just an hour flight. Bogota sits at 8,600 feet and you could definitely feel the altitude as well. While many people in our group didn’t really...

There are certain things that you always make a point to do when summertime comes around whether is going to the beach or pool, going to a music festival, or enjoy watching some outdoor sports (for everyone back home, that’s baseball season, go Cubs!). I may be cheating on this since I’m chasing summer all year, but these are all my favorite things to do...
