Paris, France: November 2016

Paris.  Save the best for last, right? We left Amsterdam early in order to have most of the day to do stuff once arriving in Paris.  We took the high speed train and I was so excited at first thinking it was going to be some cool new French train but it ended up being…

Amsterdam, Netherlands: November 2016

The only direct flight from Kiev to Amsterdam on a reputable airline was at 5:30AM on KLM, which was fine by us since we wanted to get out of Ukraine. These are two stamps I’m proud to have in my passport, because it displays the trials and tribulations of Ukraine.  Hahaha The airport in Amsterdam…

Busan, South Korea: May 2016

Last weekend was a three day weekend, so I took the opportunity to visit Busan with a friend! Busan is the second largest city in South Korea.  It’s also the furthest south.  The best way to get there is by the high speed rail line, the KTX.  As we were traveling I noticed we inched…
