13 Helpful Things To Know Before You Visit New York City

They say one of the easiest ways to spot a tourist in New York is when someone stops to look up at the skyline. I’m guessing this is because New York is fast-paced and residents are always on the move, so there is no time to admire the skyscrapers. I’m not one to get too obsessed over blending in or making sure I don’t look like a tourist (after all – I usually AM a tourist!), but I do think…

French Phrases to Know Before You Go

It’s always a good idea to learn at least a few phrases of the local language when you’re visiting a foreign country. I’ve found that making an effort to speak someone’s language (even if it’s just a few words) usually goes a long way–this is especially true in France. It’s also a good idea for safety reasons if you find yourself in need of a doctor or need to ask someone for help. Sometimes guidebooks can overdo it with the…

Carry-on Luggage for Every Style & Budget

It’s probably no surprise that I’m always on the lookout for cute luggage! I often hear recommendations to invest in a nice suitcase to last a lifetime, but I think it makes more sense to buy a modestly priced, yet still quality, carry-on instead. Whether you’re checking your bag or using the overhead bin, your luggage will take a few hits over time and to expect it to last a lifetime seems a bit unrealistic. If you keep your luggage…
