    Rome, Italy (June 2013)

    My favorite site in Rome was the Colosseum, so much history!

    A friend asked me for tips on Rome. I totally forgot I made this guide when I was planning to go. Figured I should share it here just incase I lose that guide and need some tips!

    I went for several days (maybe 4) in June 2013 so forgive me for not remembering extensively. I thought Rome was really cool for its history, architecture, and culture. However, the food- it wasn’t the best. I heard from other friends the same thing; they said the food in other Italian cities were a lot better. Welp, just more of a reason to visit Italy again right?!

    Chicago, Illinois (December 2014)

    Hope everyone had a joyous holiday. Happy New Year!

    Came back from Chicago for work right before Christmas so didn’t have a lot of time to venture outside of city center, where my hotel and work office was. Overall, I really enjoyed Chicago. Yes, it was super cold (um in New York on Christmas, it was 50 degrees.. what.) but a pretty city. Felt like I was in New York (with the high rises and holiday decor) once I stepped outside the subway. I didn’t get to go to River North or any other parts of Chicago since it was way too cold and I didn’t feel like commuting too far at night by myself so here are the things I did get to do in my time at Chi Town. read more “Chicago, Illinois (December 2014)”
