Los Angeles Creativity Binge

On some days, I want to sleep in so I can catch up on sleep, but on other days, I want to get up early to run off to L.A. Actually, I saw an Instagram post about an artwork that caught my curiosity and I did a little digging and found that L.A. last month had a few interesting things to see. After getting motivated, I went on an LA escapade. Take a look at these places I liked.

Twinkling Lights in Geneva, Switzerland.

A few months ago V and I had one of our many conversations on the train while en route to yet, another destination. That day, we talked a lot about places we wanted to see before we left Europe and we both agreed on Geneva as one of the cities to see. Fast forward a few months later, well, little did we know a trip to Geneva would become a reality and more importantly, it would be our last European trip together.  Continue reading “Twinkling Lights in Geneva, Switzerland.”

The sound of Cremona.

Cremona

Known as a musical destination, Cremona hit all the right notes. My friends and I embarked our way for the day in Cremona to celebrate the end of our semester. As it turns out, the town was having their annual Fiesta Del Torrone. The streets were lined with markets selling various sumptuous nougats and musical performances with a stage set up in the middle of the square. There were youngsters singing and dancing to songs from popular shows like Grease or Dirty Dancing. It was hard not to get into the groove of it all.

One Day in Basel

Coming from Paris, C and I had the weekend in Milan to rest and prepare for our next big trip. If you didn’t know, Milan is a ghost town in August because everyone shuts down and goes on summer vacation for a month. All of my friends from school went home for the summer but, for those of us that are far from home don’t have that luxury.

Anyway, I’m glad my little C-Bear came to visit me as we made use of our time and we happily spent our days jumping at various locations within Europe. What I find great about being in Europe is the fact that I can be in another country within a few hours.

Basel was one city that both of us have never been to. It’s 4 hours away by train from Milan and yes, we did another 7am wake up call nearly missing our train. Although, I’m happy to say we made it.  Continue reading “One Day in Basel”

Browsing in 10 Corso Como, Milan

Corso Como

I spent yesterday wandering in Corso Como 10. This shopping complex is a major stopping point for anyone who needs a break in Milan. The complex has an art gallery, a book shop, a design store, a small hotel, and (my favorite) a rooftop garden. Having spent a few hours browsing the bookshop and looking through the art gallery, I decided it was going to be my go-to spot. I went up to the rooftop and read for the rest of the afternoon.
