TRAVEL DIARIES – AMSTERDAM

It’s finally the time to pack up my bags and fly off on another adventure. This time, we’re heading to Amsterdam. Day One: Our first day in Amsterdam was a big one.

A YEAR ON FROM GRADUATING

After months of thinking and deciding … Continue reading A YEAR ON FROM GRADUATING
