Big Fat Greek Vacay: Exploring Greece During Off-Peak Season

If you’re looking for a quaint Greek village, where old men gather to play dominoes and yayas (grandmas) force feed you baklava, well, Mykonos is not for you. Famous for its beaches and nightlife, frequented by supermodels and Italian bachelor parties, the island is more “Ibiza” and less “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”.  But if days spent in the Mediterranean sun followed by dancing the night away sounds like your cup of tea, read our guide, grab your bestie, and pack your swimsuit.

How to Prepare for an Epic Road Trip in Iceland

Immediately, I began to do basic research and quickly learned that the best way to see Iceland is by car. I kept coming across phrases like “the ultimate road trip of your life,” and “you’ll want to stop every five minutes,” which are pretty bold statements that make you take pause.

Budapest was the last major stop on our road trip before we returned to Poland. The city is divided into two parts Buda and Pest.

Top 5 Things to Do in Berlin!

Continuing on my Euro road trip series, Jacek, Jessica, and I drove 2.5 hours from the coast of Poland to Berlin. We spent 3 days there, which bought us to the halfway mark of our itinerary. As soon as we arrived in Berlin, I received major NYC vibes from its evident diversity (relative to Poland) and liveliness.

Before we get into the top 5 things to do in Berlin, let's cover some travel basics: accommodations and transportation.

Why I Was Wrong About Poland

Confession time. My Polish friend, Jacek has been trying to get me to visit Poland for many years. But I brushed off his invitation to visit "sexier" places in Europe like Paris, Barcelona, and Milan. If you've been following my posts, you know that I recently accepted his invitation and I'm pleased to say I had the time of my life during our road trip exploring Poland and other neighboring countries.

Party of One: Lessons Learned on My Solo Adventure to England and Iceland

As I unloaded my bags from my weeklong England & Iceland excursion, I chuckled at the mail that had arrived for me in my absence. On my pillow laid Essence Magazine’s June 2016 travel edition. It was this time last year that I was reading an Essence article that encouraged women to step out of their comfort zone and see the world, even if it meant doing so, solo! After reading that article, I was determined not to let another year pass before I did just that.
