LA in Three Days

This girl is no stranger to Los Angeles. Ever since my oldest brother moved there to pursue his music career (and succeed in it), I had spent many a spring break soaking up the sun on the West Coast. But over the past two or so years, I've had to skip out on the annual LA trip because, well, life got in the way. So while my parents took one for the team and continued to visit my brother each spring, I, sadly, missed out. 

Until this year. The annual Olia Family vacation took a dramatic turn, and we ended up heading West instead of to Europe, like we normally do. It makes things easier for my oldest brother, who has little time to take off of work, and makes it so that we can stay in the country (albeit a 6 hour flight away) for our vacation. Cue jetlag. 


Upcoming Travels

I just touched down in Los Angeles on Monday for my first big holiday after 8 weeks of work. I'd say it's pretty well deserved, and for that reason I'm keeping things short this week.

The next month or so is going to be pretty hectic for me in terms of travel. Nothing monumental or anything, but plenty of moving from one place to the next. It's definitely not the worst way to start off my final year of university, but I definitely wish there I had a bit more stability. Oh well, all in the name of travel, I guess!


How to Spend a Day in Boston

There's no shortage of things to do or see, or iconic foods to eat in Boston. But say you've ticked all the tourist-y boxes (the Freedom Trail and Faneuil Hall to name a few) and want to freshen up your Boston itinerary?

Well, that's just what fellow blogger Hayley and I did this weekend. Hayley first paid me a visit in my home city last summer. Since it was her first time in Boston (and in America for that matter...), we had so much to do in so little time! Back then, we really hit the ground running and did the full on Boston crash-course. But this time, we took things at a bit of a slower pace, visiting old favorites and discovering a few hidden gems.


3 Things I've Learned from 3 Years of Blogging

Starting a blog when you go abroad is about as basic as it gets. I'm sorry to say it, but it's true. 

For some, it's a required assignment for their program. For others, it's a personal project punctuated by bursts of creativity from time to time. And for the rare breed of blogger, they've turned their online space from a side hustle into a full-time job.

For me? It's simply been my passion since day one- basic or not. 

I started my blog back in 2014, about a month before I started at the University of Edinburgh. At the time, I knew so little, but wanted to write about so much. I mean, so much that any little adventure or anecdote would turn into a full-blown blog post. I was amazed by everything, and I just had to write about it.
