A Typical Sunday in Berlin for Me, a Guy Who Loves to Club

By |June 23rd, 2017|Categories: Berlin, Culture, Germany, Nightlife|0 Comments

It's 3pm on a Sunday, and while the rest of Berlin is going to bed after a long, hard day of being a cog in a system, I'm just waking up. Why am I waking up at a time that, to you, is a very unreasonable, but to me, is a normal hour to start the day? I'm glad you asked. Part of the reason is, of course, because I had a massive night out [...]

Keep Calm and Carry On—London in Real Time

By |June 20th, 2017|Categories: Culture, England, London|1 Comment

On June 3, I loaded on to a bus with 30 other bright-eyed tourists and traveled around London seeing the filming locations for the Harry Potter films. One of those locations was the Leaky Cauldron Tavern, filmed at Burrough Market. Later that evening, I was back at my central London hostel talking to my mom on the phone. When I hung up, I saw the Washington Post notification: someone had driven a car into pedestrians [...]

I Tried Iceland’s Infamous Rotten Shark

By |June 19th, 2017|Categories: Culture, Food, Iceland|2 Comments

Full disclosure: I like eating weird food. It’s one of my favorite things about traveling. I’ve tried chicken feet in China (delicious), haggis in Scotland (somewhat less delicious), and pig intestines in Hong Kong (think really chewy, orange meat noodle). When I got to Iceland, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. After all, it’s normally the volcanoes, glaciers, and black-sand beaches that draw people to this island, not the food. Behind the counter [...]

Getting Lost in London

By |June 15th, 2017|Categories: Culture, England, London, Transportation|0 Comments

Who would win: a directionally-challenged girl with no data plan, a fraught history with maps, and a shaky understanding of the concept of “north,” or the entire city of London?  For those keeping score at home, the answer is London. To be fair, London’s mean streets and I do not have a relationship of pure antagonism: I’ve been saved quite a few times by handy little street maps (ah, the existential reassurance of a “you [...]

I Couldn’t Put My Contacts in Until I Couldn’t Speak the Language

By |June 13th, 2017|Categories: Culture, Portugal, Transportation|0 Comments

Like riding a bicycle, or learning a language, putting in contacts is something you can learn at a young age and—once you learn it—you’ll never forget. It’s the kind of thing that can be maddeningly frustrating to master, but then seems laughably easy once it becomes habit. When I got contacts for the first time in May, when I was finally sick of waving at people I thought I knew only to find a stranger [...]
