Chocolate. Beer. Rain. Frites. More frites. More beer. And even more rain. That’s pretty much how I would sum up my time spent in Belgium. I had a great few days in Brussels and Bruges and it was a nice relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of Paris. While there isn’t a ton to
There’s one thing I know for sure about Paris: no matter how much time I am there, it is never enough. I had an absolute blast in Paris last week. I’m going to follow up with some more in depth posts but I wanted to share a brief overview of what I’ve been up to.
For this month’s Hungry Traveler Interview, I am pleased to introduce Sean Lee. Sean graduated from the University of Cincinnati a few years before me but we were involved in many of the same campus organizations and have many friends in common. I’ve enjoyed following Sean’s travels on social media and was especially intrigued by his
Right now I’m writing to you from a train traveling from Brussels to Amsterdam. I’m a bit behind on my travel journal entries but it’s hard to sit down and blog when there are frites to eat and beers to drink. However, instead of sleeping like my travel companions, I thought I would take the
As soon as I finish this post, I’m headed to the Detroit airport to catch a flight for Paris, the first destination of my 6 week trip. After taking some cooking classes and doing some research in Paris, I’ll meet up with my friends Annie and Biff in Belgium and travel with them for about a month.
A three way and a cheese coney I tried Cincinnati chili for the first time during my freshman year of college. I was brand new to Cincinnati and when you meet people in Cincinnati, the first thing they ask is where you went to high school. When they found out I was from out of
I’ve spent the last few days in Nashville, Tennessee attending a technology conference with my dad. When he asked me to come with him, I wasn’t too excited about sitting in meetings with tech nerds all day (Who am I kidding? I’m a tech nerd myself) but I jumped at the chance to spend time
Jessie Svet Reedtz was introduced to me by Missy Hanley, my friend and the subject of the last Hungry Traveler Interview. I’ve never actually met Jessie in person but after chatting with her online and reading her interview answers, I feel like I know her. We have so many common interests that it’s surprising our paths
Food is always my priority when I travel and I am lucky to have great friends who go along with my crazy eating plans. Last weekend, I convinced Annie (you met her here) to do a pastry tour of Chicago with me. We came up with a list of bakeries together and Annie planned out our
A few weeks ago I joined my French class for a special dinner to celebrate the end of the term. The group of students dining together was diverse in age and background but we all share a common interest of travel and, naturally, that’s where the dinner conversation drifted. During our Moroccan feast, we discussed the
