WHAT TO EAT AND DRINK IN ISTANBUL

WHAT TO EAT AND DRINK IN ISTANBUL

The short answer? Everything. The downside to taking a last-minute weekend trip once I'd already splurged on a huge twelve-day trip in the same month, was that unfortunately I couldn't afford to eat everything. Nor did I have the time. And since my hotel offered free breakfast and afternoon snacks,…

MY FIRST TASTE OF TURKEY

MY FIRST TASTE OF TURKEY

The first couple days after returning from vacation are always a struggle—even more so when you know you’ll be jetting off to another exotic location the following week. From jet lag and slowly coaxing yourself out of vacation mode, to gauging your answer to the infamous "how was your trip" questions.…

Lazy Sunday at the Camden Market

Lazy Sunday at the Camden Market

This past weekend finally brought blue skies and well above freezing temperatures to London, so I spent Sunday roaming around Camden Market with my friend Julie whom I met a few years ago in New York. She's originally from France but currently living in Geneva, and luckily for me visiting…

Getting High for Birthday Dinner in the BVI

I am by no means a food connoisseur. Hell, one of my favorite foods is the Cheesy Gordita Crunch from Taco Bell. But I do have nearly 27 years of experience in eating. That's gotta give me some credibility, right? Living in New York for nearly six years has given me a…

If you're looking for a unique dining experience in New York City, you'll want to head down to the Lower East Side. The Stanton Social is a tapas-style restaurant serving up food that is intended to be shared amongst a group—hence the word "social."  With a full raw bar and…

Day 19: Last Day in The Bay

Day 19: Last Day in The Bay

I spent the majority of Saturday packing for Jamaica, and resting up. I did manage to make it out of the house for a quick bite to eat with Terazia, an extended family member I haven't seen since she was like 7 years old. Now she's 18 and going to…
