Oxford Day Trip

If you’re looking for a quick day trip out of London, I highly recommend Oxford! My sister and her husband recently came to visit me in London for the four day Easter weekend. Our weekend was jam packed, but we wanted to squeeze in a day trip somewhere outside of the city. I had been to Oxford once before on a solo adventure. So, I thought it would be awesome to return to the cute, college town with some company. We scheduled in the Oxford ...

Chef Laura’s Tearful Journey

You may have read the recent story by Laura that I heard while I was in Val D’Isere, France. Well, I’m here to tell you another story about a chef interview, told by a different Laura. This Laura was the incredible chef that worked in our chalet for the week. I am not joking when I say this was the most delicious food I have ever eaten! First off, I was not expecting four course meals. Second, she was absolutely amazing and such a sweet ...

The French Alps

Follow my blog with Bloglovin My job as a nanny comes with a lot of perks. One of the recent perks was the opportunity to travel to the French Alps for a week with the family I work for. Yes, I would be working, but hey, I’d much rather spend a week working in Val D’Isere than in London! When I first heard about the holiday, my initial thought was that this would be the perfect opportunity to meet others abroad and hear more stories for my ...

Simon’s Hostel Stalker

This story speaks to the true crime fanatic in me. The storyteller is one of my great friends, Simon. I met Simon through a pal that I worked with at Travel Joy Hostels (RIP) here in London. Simon and I bonded over our hostel living lives and our shared love of travel and I now consider him my token guy friend (I literally have no others). He is also the friend that I made sit with me in Holland Park while I held up THE SIGN. Simon’s story ...

Jonathan Tells the First Story

Here it is: the first story I heard from holding up the sign in Holland Park! So, as you read in the post about “The Sign”, this was the first story that any stranger had ever told me for my blog. As I was sitting there awkwardly with my sign, two guys walked past and did a double take. One of them nudged the other and told him to tell us a story! This was so exciting for me I nearly peed. The two of them walked over and we gave a quick ...

Siyad’s Love Story

 Have you ever had a horrible Uber experience? Where you cannot understand the driver and they keep talking and you just want them to shut up and leave you in peace? Well, I experienced the complete opposite in my recent ride home from work. My Uber driver was HYSTERICAL! I seriously almost peed my pants from laughing. But I knew peeing on the seat would result in a huge fee from Uber, so I held it in. Our conversation started with the ...

Bec Meets Ketut

Coming up with an idea of a blog is much easier than actually starting to write said blog. It’s tough working up the guts to walk up to a stranger in a foreign place and say, “Hey, you look cool. Tell me a story, please!” Eventually, that’s my goal. Give me a few glasses of wine and it will be easy-peasy! But, for now, I’ve decided to start close to home and talk with the first friend I made when I moved abroad about her Bali travel ...

Annie Writes a Book

There are some people that come into your life and it feels as though they have been there the entire time. For me, Annie DelSignore is one of those people, and she came into my life through a weird app called Bumble BFF. She is pure inspiration to my life. Our friendship is less than a year old, but it’s clear that our wavelengths are constantly synced no matter how far the distance. I know many of you are probably wondering, “Huh…Bumble ...
