Womens March on Washington

I Was There

This is a long, boring account of an exciting, historic weekend in Washington DC. The Women’s March on Washington (or really on the world) took place on January 21, 2017. While the numbers were never conclusive, several estimates have come to between 3-4 million people taking part in marches on all 7 continents. Yet, between President Trump’s executive orders and the debates occurring in Congress … Continue reading I Was There

March Madness

Maybe during the month of March I gave myself mild travel whiplash. For some reason, several travel plans managed to converge in March and so I’ve spent the past few weeks traveling around the coasts of the USA. Each mini-trip has been fun in it’s own separate way and with spring around the corner and longer days, it’s easier to maximize the opportunity of each … Continue reading March Madness

Falling in a Rhythm

The past month has brought about the end of summer with colder weather and darker days and a busier work season—a reminder of the routine of winter. It’s hard to believe that a year ago this past week was my first week at my job and the first week of making the routine that has now become the norm. While it’s only been a year, … Continue reading Falling in a Rhythm

Sunsets on Summer

It’s been a crazy long summer in the USA, full of ups and downs and commotion and it’s all ending in one last culmination of change. After lots of fun in the NYC sun, I’m off to the Czech Republic for a reunion tour before coming back to a new job, new apartment and who knows what else! I’ve realized that a lot of the pictures … Continue reading Sunsets on Summer

The Winter that Never Ends

Even though you would think that with the amount of snow that’s fallen on New York City this winter, people might have gotten used to it. However, it seems like the weather is all that anyone talks about these days, as snow and freezing temperatures make it impossible to forget. I realized that after 4 years of balmy winters in Virginia and an unusually warm … Continue reading The Winter that Never Ends

Vynikající*

It’s past Labor Day here in the USA, so according to the cultural calendar, official summer is over (not that you could tell by the 90F/30C weather). I think the number one word I can use to describe this past month would be: chaotic. Everyday seems to fly by with a list of too many things to do and a feeling of dissatisfaction when I … Continue reading Vynikající*

Skyscrapers + America

Reverse Culture Shock

It’s officially been 2 weeks since I first landed back in the United States. I’ve tried to keep a list of everything that has hit me as strange, uncomfortable, exciting or just plain weird about coming back to the United States (specifically the New Jersey suburbs of NYC) after my 11 months in Znojmo. I think I have definitely been looking at my old usual … Continue reading Reverse Culture Shock
