White Mountains, NH

I had no big travel plans this semester as I settled into life as a MBA student, but thought I should put a blogpost together for our quick trip to the White Mountains over Fall Break last month, as well as give a little update for the last post of this decade! I can’t even…

Catalina Island & LA Area (2019)

Finally, I’m all caught up on travel blogging, and I don’t even have a huge trip coming up soon – just a long weekend in the White Mountains for fall break, and no huge trips until January after that! We are almost at the end of our first term, and while people are starting to…

Pacific Coast Highway

My last trip before heading off to bschool, back in early August, was a roadtrip down the Pacific Coast Highway for a slightly early 1-year anniversary trip. It’s a bit crazy to think that I only started school a little over a month ago, and our 1 year anniversary was only a month ago –…

San Juan, Puerto Rico (2019)

Another month since my last blogpost, but at least I haven’t gone on a bunch of trips and run into a backlog of posts just yet – I’ve just been acclimating to student life! It’s been pretty busy, but mostly just on the academics side for now; this term is really more of a quarter,…

Beijing, China

As usual, I am delinquent with my blog posts. I am stealing away a few precious moments during my first week of orientation for my MBA program to write this blogpost, because I want to make a conscious effort to have balance in my life in the midst of all this crazy “networking” (i.e. socializing,…

Qingdao, China

Our time in Qingdao was a whirlwind; we ended up only having 2 days here. I didn’t think we would need that much time here, since it’s not as touristy as Shanghai or Beijing, but in reality I wish that we had stayed longer because it was probably the best city we visited in China….

ZhuJiaJiao & Suzhou, China

ZhuJiaJiao Ancient Water Town  Continued from the Shanghai post: I wanted to go out of the city on my second day in Shanghai, since I knew when M made it he would want to see the main tourist sights in Shanghai. I chose to take a day trip to ZhuJiaJiao, an ancient water town about…

Shanghai, China

  Day 3 of funemployment and time is going by too fast! I’ve loved having time to work out and cook, although I’m not getting to spend as much time studying for my exemption exams as I’d like because I’ve had plans every evening. I’ll be traveling to Puerto Rico tomorrow for an extended weekend,…

Cebu, Philippines

Once again, I am delinquent on my blog posts, and I am hustling to finish all the ones from last month’s Asia trip before my next trip this Friday (ah!). I officially started funemployment this past Monday evening, and have not gotten my last paycheck yet so I’m sure I will feel my changed financial…

Taipei, Taiwan

After my really long trip to Delhi (it was only 2 weeks, but felt way longer), I was super ready to start my personal travel. I had to be in China the week of July 4th, and since my work trip was planned two weeks prior to that, it didn’t make sense for me to…
