My Carry-On Essentials

With only a few days left until my boyfriend and I take off for Bali, Indonesia it’s time for me to start packing my carry-on essentials. Previously, I swore by taking a duffle bag and a backpack but most backpacks only have two compartments and don’t tend to be very safe since all of your […]

Surviving Economy Class

For most of us student travelers, the only fares that we can afford to take trips abroad are economy flights, and believe me, economy class is no walk in the park. After surviving my fair share of 13+ hour flights, I think I am beginning to get the knack of things and how to stay […]
