Strolling Trastevere🇮🇹

Strolling Trastevere🇮🇹

I can mosey along the Tiber River for hours and never tire of its humming rush and scenic display. The foliage reorients, weakening leaves to make room for the beauty of bare branches. And as I cross one of the many bridges that link the […]

A Jewess in Rome🇮🇹

A Jewess in Rome🇮🇹

Notable foot traffic, diving pigeons, workers lunching, divas brunching; Roma bears a semblance to New York. However, this city is spared the monotony, the graceless coffee breaks, the inexcusable lack of fine dress. NYC is home to wondrous magic, but Rome has evolved; it has […]

A Guide to Taking Yourself Out on the Town

A Guide to Taking Yourself Out on the Town

Initial order of business: I needed to take myself out. Just me. Alone. Happily embracing the silence and solitude. Okay, maybe not silence. This is NYC after all. 1. Plan it Out…but Not Too Much I don’t like to meticulously plan things out as much […]

LA: WEEK 2

LA: WEEK 2

Like I mentioned in my week 1 post, I am soulfully an East Coaster and initially didn’t get the whole California appeal. Though I don’t have a total change of heart, I’m still happy to report that LA is remarkable in less conventional ways, such […]

LA: WEEK 1

My 2 weeks in California were filled with just the right amount of amusement to keep this East Coast gal from yelling, “Where’s a damn bodega when you need one?!” I was invited by several friends to come bask in the California sun and take […]

Exploring  DUMBO

Exploring DUMBO

I’m quite certain many people don’t even know what DUMBO’s acronym stands for: Down under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Back when Brooklyn was becoming the hyped up scene it is today, (for hipsters and trust-fund babies anyway), Dumbo seemed to be the first neighborhood everyone […]

Shuk Machane Yehuda 🇮🇱

From as far back as I can remember, Machane Yehuda has always been on my bucket list. When I finally got a chance to go 4 years ago, it was everything I imagined it to be. This time around, I remember being very pressed for […]

Old City, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

Old City, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

This is where cultures come together, (or collide, depending on who you are and how you choose to view things). I personally loved every aspect of the Old City. There’s so many things to see, foods to try, people to meet. This is a mecca […]

Har Nof, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

Har Nof, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

My time spent in Har Nof was short and sweet. I went to visit my cousin who’s currently studying abroad there. I actually met up with her after my visit to the Tower of David Museum. We lunched in Denya Café where I had delicious […]

Rechavia, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

Rechavia, Jerusalem 🇮🇱

I recently came home from Israel and I find it daunting to properly convey all that’s happened over the course of the three weeks I was there. But I’ll try my best. There will be more posts here where I explore other cities, museums, and […]
