Milano is one of the most magical places I’ve ever been to (especially during the holiday season). For as long as I could remember, I’ve dreamed of going to Italy and eating my favorite foods, drinking wine, and shopping. Sadly I only had a weekend to do all of that, but it was one of the best weekends of my life. A friend of mine was living there for a few months, so I bought a plane ticket, planned my trip, and left London on Black Friday weekend.
Everything just seemed oddly familiar to me, like I’d visited before. It was exactly what I thought it would be like, yet nothing like what I thought at the same time. But I must say, the food was EXACTLY what I thought it would be like. Fresh, flavorful and to DIE for. Best pasta and bruschette I’ve ever had.
There was so much culture and history everywhere that I went, and I could just feel it there. Everything was so beautiful and it sometimes felt like I stepped back in time.
It’s definitely a place I want to visit again in the future, and hopefully you and I both will get the change to tour the rest of Italy! And of course, eat all the food.
Some photos of me at my favorite place. One thing I love about my home so much is the beach. I’m an earth sign and the sea just makes me calm and relaxed. On this day, the waves were rough and the water was murkier than usual but I still enjoyed it all the same.
took a quick day trip to Bristol and fell in love.. here are some things I saw there
I’ve never been to Bristol before this, and didn’t really know what to expect. It was suck a laid back and genuinely cool place and I loved the difference in the vibe compared to London. It was full of creative art and skateboarders all over town. Below are some of the places I explored!
St. James Priory
I was itching to travel but was on a tight student budget, so I decided to travel within the UK. It was exciting to visit a new place and it was an interesting experience traveling alone. Brighton is 1 hour and 30 minutes outside of London by train, and only cost me 12 GBP, which was a steal. I got around by walking, and only took the bus too and from the rail station (as Bristol doesn’t take Oyster cards and I had to use my contactless on the bus which was more costly). Here are some of the place I visited and the things I saw on my little adventure.

Aladdin’s Magic Carpets ride
Over my spring break I took a trip to Disney’s Magic Kingdom for the last time before I turn 20 (an official adult!) It was the most fun and I’m always so glad to go and live like I’m 10 years old again.
Ever wanted to visit London? Here are some of my favorite museums you have to visit on your next trip!
The Grand Cafe in Green Park is definitely one of my favorite places for tea and scones..
The Grand Cafe in Green Park is definitely one of my favorite places for tea and scones (an macarons) in London! It’s one of the most affordable yet extravagant places so of course I had to take my friend here the day after she came to visit. If you ever come to London, it’s definitely a must!
