Bulgaria is beautiful - but the initial reception here seems as chilly as the November weather. How I learned that smiles aren’t everything, and why I’m getting to like traveling alone in Bulgaria.
Right now, I'm in the middle of two very different…
Lower prices, lower crowds, and a whole lot less going on (for better or worse).
On knowing an ancient version of a modern language, and the challenges of a different alphabet.
Finding the beauty in the unexpected on Greece’s largest island - tiny cats, friendly locals, and too much incredible food.
Visiting Athens as a solo female traveler is heaven - friendly strangers, safe streets, excellent coffee. Just watch out for those scooters!
Santorini is a hot modern destination for travel - but the ancient mysteries of Minoan Akrotiri is more interesting to me than pool selfies and hot clubs.
Visiting Dijon and Lyon, two of France’s loveliest cities, I learned to be open to what’s new instead of clinging to what’s behind me.
Spending a few fall days driving around the beautiful Burgundy region of France - why you should try it too (wine! And wine, and more wine).
Taking my own solo self on a romantic two-day stay in Burgundy chateau - leaning into the art of self-romance and eating all the cheese.
