Europe 2015 Photo Diary

During spring break of my senior year in high school, I took the trip of a lifetime with my best friends: two glorious weeks wandering around Europe. Our stops? Paris, Barcelona, the French Riviera, Pisa, Florence, Rome.

I remember wanting to start a blog before I left so that I could update…

A New Day in San Francisco

Usually when I go to San Francisco, I know what I want to do. I would have somewhat of a plan and a list of things I want to see. I had already gone to SF the day before with my friend, Sarah, and I was pretty exhausted. Starting…

Point Reyes

I had been wanting to go to Point Reyes for years. I remember seeing the lighthouse on Instagram for the first time and thinking ‘woah that looks cool’. It’s a photographer’s dream location, complete with vastly open landscapes and beautiful ocean waves. My friends and I finally took the trip…

The Getty Center

Cancelled classes call for a visit to The Getty. I have been meaning to visit both the museum and the villa since the beginning of the year, and Wednesday afternoon was the best time to finally make the drive. The Getty Center and the Getty Villa are at two…

Sunday morning, I drove down to San Diego to meet up with old friends. I have a pact with one of them that we have to see each other every month and so I got to check February off of our list.

At first, we did some shopping (more like…

Multnomah Falls

You’ve probably seen this gorgeous waterfall at least once on Instagram, and for good reason. About thirty minutes outside of Portland, the Columbia River Gorge falls alongside the historic Columbia River Highway forming Multnomah Falls. Walking up to this beast, my mouth dropped. It’s much larger than it seems;…

Sleepless in Seattle

This is my second trip to Seattle in the last six months. I love this beautiful city and it is starting to feel like one of my many second homes. Our first stop in the city was a nice bread bowl filled with New England style clam chowder from Lowell’s.

Being able…

Balboa Island

My dorm floor went out on a GYRAD this weekend. (By the way, that stands for Get Your Roommate A Date). We took duffy boat cruises around Balboa Island and then went for a bonfire dinner and hangout at the beach. Around half of the girls went with other…
