WELCOME TO ICELAND

The last blog in my UK series, I wanted this post to reflect Iceland’s true magic. The last time we talked about the United Kingdom, I was in Ireland, slowly making my way through a pint of Guinness. From Dublin, my mom and I took a two-hour flight to Reykjavik. A quick enough journey, we…

Nicaragua: A Hidden Gem

One recent county that I had the privilege to visit, was Nicaragua! I had an absolute blast and got to really immerse myself in the culture, test my spanish-speaking skills, and further my photography passion.
