TRAVEL | prague II

Last week I spent a spontaneous weekend in Prague. My { last visit } always felt a bit too rushed so I decided to return to Prague for round two because I would be crazy to not take advantage of the fact that I live so close now.

Luckily for me a fellow SCAD student was also in town, so I met up with him and his friends for a night of drinking the first night, and casual stroll around the city the second day. Safe to say that this experience outdid the last by a longshot!

I definitely did more walking this time. I think of the reasons is that I'm a little more
fit/healthy this time around haha. It was actually really nice to have the time to explore
more of the city on foot.

Naturally, I returned to Lokal, the food hall that serves a lot of classic Czech dishes.
Everything is pretty affordable so I went for dishes that were new to me and also dishes
that sounds like something I would not able to replicate at home. Pictured above is the
rabbit with mushrooms.

PERSONAL | me in berlin

After a few months of hiatus due to graduation, internships, and job hunts, I think I'm ready to get back into the blogging game. Many things have changed since the last time I posted. Once again, I'm in Berlin, but this time I ditched the traveller title and am now officially living and working in this great city.

The last few months have been a rough back and forth. My 5 year plan had led me right to the moment I've been waiting for: to graduate and move to Europe (somehow). Even though I've been talking about Europe non-stop for about 3 years now, the fact that it was finally happening really scared me. I was scared I wouldn't find a job if I moved--that I had overestimated my abilities. Because with so many talented designers in Berlin--in Europe--why would anyone pick me? But luckily I had some pretty great people in my life slap some sense into me whenever I lost my center.


So now I'm settling comfortably into my new life here in Berlin. I started work at my new company, Tandem, one month ago and I'm loving it. My co-workers and the office are so lovely and more than I could ever ask for.

I'm really happy. :)
