Visiting Historic Seneca Falls, New York

Seeing my BFF Chelsie is always a top priority when I'm in the States, regardless of which state she's in (though thankfully she's always on the East Coast). She recently moved to Seneca Falls, NY with her husband and informed me she was not visiting me this time, I had to come to Seneca Falls because I would love it. I figured she just didn't want to drive to see me and since Seneca Falls is part of the Finger Lakes region of New York, it... Read More »

Bonnaroo 2016: Welcome to the Farm

20 Memorable Moments from Year 20

As of last month, I am officially legal in the United States! The fact that I made my first legal alcohol purchase in Costa Rica did not make turning 21 any less exciting and, lucky me, my birthday fell on a Friday so I was able to go out and celebrate that night. I ended up celebrating my birthday for three weeks and I can honestly say that between two concerts, a road trip, a weekend with my second family, two birthday cakes, my boss showing... Read More »
