Hello from England! As I mentioned in my previous post, I am spending the next month in Europe with my first adventure being a tour of the United Kingdom. We still have about five days left in this glorious country, but I thought I would drop by with a quick update of my favorite moments so far. Don't forget to follow along on Instagram for even more snippets!
1. Taking on college again with a day at the stunning University of Oxford (also known as Hogwarts, of course).

I hope you have enjoyed my travel snippets from Asia over the past week! If there is one thing Seoul and New York have in common, it is in the intense winter chill. This kind of weather calls for the chunkiest knits and oversized coats -- in neutrals, of course.
Our last few days in Korea were spent waking up to five-degree temperatures, hence the unfortunate lack of photos. But don't worry, the travel posts are far from over...
If Winter Storm Jonas cooperates, I will be flying off on a month-long European adventure tonight with just a backpack of belongings. It is just the send-off I need before joining the 9-to-5 world. While this means I will be leaving my laptop behind, I will try my best to upload some phone updates to the blog as often as possible. If not, you can always find me on Instagram!
I apologize in advance for any blogging absence that may occur, but I promise there will be some awesome content to come once I return! Here's to the adventure of a lifetime. Europe, here I come!

We're in Korea! Before heading to Seoul, we stopped for a day in the southern port city of Busan. Most tourists flock here to enjoy the beaches in the warmer months, but there was a certain beauty in the quiet of wintertime by the seaside.
Unfortunately I will not have a photo diary from Seoul as I was sick at home for most of the time, but I hope you enjoy these snaps from our day in Busan and look out for what is yet to come on this post-grad travel adventure!

The second half of our Taiwanese adventure was no disappointment! My conclusion? Come for the food; stay for the relaxation. Taipei may be known for its serene hot springs, but its friendly, hospitable inhabitants are truly what make this city the peaceful environment that it is.
Speaking from a New Yorker's perspective, I was blown away by the level of kindness that is shown by the Taiwanese people. I can assure that any of you who make the trip one day (and I highly recommend you do so), you will be greeted with a smile, always.

There are two reviews of Taiwan I heard on repeat before visiting. 1) There is nothing to do, 2) The food is out of this world. After three days of exploring Taipei I can tell you the latter is absolutely true, and for me, endless dining means there is plenty to do.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I have embarked on a month-long travel adventure before joining the corporate world in March. My roommates and I began this journey in Taipei, the peaceful metropolitan capital of Taiwan inhabited by some of the kindest people I've ever met. My favorite moments of the trip so far have been the gondola ride to the hills of Maokong (below) and the energetic night markets lined with stalls of local food.

Happy 2016! I hope you have enjoyed a fantastic start to the new year so far. The arrival of this year has been especially exciting for me, as I will be spending the next month traveling internationally before joining the corporate world. Packing lightly during these frigid winter months is never an easy task, so my first post of the year is for the on-the-go girls who want to stay warm, comfortable, and still in style.
