How to Plan Your Eurotrip

When it comes to traveling, my heart is always drawn back to my favorite continent: Europe.In the past 5 years, I've visited three times, and so I'd like to think I know a thing or two about getting started with planning a Eurotrip; but even so I still find myself getting overwhelmed by it all. I know a lot of you have had dreams and plans of visiting Europe one day but have no idea where to start, and so I decided to create a guide with all the basics to help kickstart your planning.

How I Stay Fresh During the Summer

My biggest issue with the summer months is dealing with the heat. I’ve never been a fan of it, I mean who is?

Things I Need for my Typical Work Day

Yes, as a freelancer, most days I work from home. In bed. In my pajamas. Under the covers. With my laptop open. Sometimes with a plate of food nearby. My bed becomes my sleep/eat/work station. It's definitely not healthy, but that's the reality of freelance life. On the other hand, I work outside at least 2-3 times a week and so I've got my typical must-haves when I venture out into the world to actually live.
