The Abandoned: Brooklyn Army Terminal

If you follow me on Instagram you maybe know that my boyfriend and I like to explore abandoned places across the East Coast from time to time. SO naturally we want to explore places in Brooklyn (where we currently live). 

We had known about the Brooklyn Army Terminal for awhile but were always turned away from exploring it as it's heavily guarded. Better safe than sorry.

Moving in NYC 101

If you've ever wanted to move to New York but haven't heard anything about the process it can be described in one word, Painful. As great as New York City is the process of moving is a pain in the a**. Sorry to burst your bubble of excitement but in order to move here you need to be aware of a couple things. I've moved five times in Manhattan, and twice in Brooklyn (where I currently live).

The Wedding of the Century

A wedding at a 16th Century Chateau, sign me up! As you may or may not know, I studied abroad in Paris during my junior year of undergrad. During my first semester I had three roommates one of them being my now good friend Samara. On the first night out on our Parisian adventure she met Martin, and almost four later I was invited to their wedding back where it all began.

Germany has sooo many great cities to visit; Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, and more. However, if you want to go to attractions that are off the beaten track and not completely overloaded with American tourists, below are three sites that you have to check out.

Another itinerary is below! This time a 12 hour itinerary of Amsterdam. If you're ever in Europe and have two-three days to spend in another city, I highly suggest Amsterdam. Why? Amsterdam is the nicest, cleanest, happiest place on earth. I've never heard from anyone that has visited Amsterdam saying they had a horrible time. So for the nicest European visit, Amsterdam is the place to go.

Itinéraire: 12 Hours in Paris

I have to start this off by saying that I'm a little bias when it comes to doing anything in Paris (I love everything that has to do with Paris). I was lucky enough my junior year of school to study abroad, for the entire year, and yes you guessed it...in Paris. For the newbie that is just coming to Paris, below is my 12 hour day plan to have a full day of being a tourist.

The City of Hills: San Francisco

San Francisco; great town, really loved the weather and the fact that it's near the beautiful Pacific Ocean is a huge plus. HOWEVER, living in New York for almost 7 years I would consider myself a walker (meaning I walk everywhere, and don't drive), so I figured San Francisco would be a piece of cake. I was very very wrong.

Advice: How to Plan a Weekend Trip

Best piece of advice I can give, regarding working corporate, is work for a company that has summer Fridays. When it's 90 degrees outside and you're watching summer go by from an office window, a couple extra days off definitely will make you feel like you've enjoyed your summer. For anyone that's graduating make sure to ask during interviews if the company has this policy, it's an added bonus if they do.
