There is a pizza place by my apartment that I’m obsessed with. Last weekend, I golfed down four slices in a time period of 15 minutes. #NoRegrets
I’m already beginning to plan my trip to Europe on February 8th. I can’t believe time is already flying by! I purchased a one-way ticket from NYC- Stockholm back in December, and now we’re less than 3 weeks away from leaving. I’m going with one of my best friends, Andrew, and since he’s a photographer, we’re going to be shooting the entire time. Even though the weather is going to be freeeezzzzing, I actually don’t mind it as much as I was thinking. I love the idea of walking around Stockholm in the snow with a warm cup of hot chocolate.
One thing people frequently ask me is how I get to travel so much. How do I afford it, enjoy it, handle it and more. Since I’ve been traveling alone since I was basically 16, I’ve got a decent amount of years of experience under my belt. Traveling for less isn’t that difficult if you’ve got a savvy mind. I always tell people to track flight tickets with sites like Momondo and apps like Skiplagged. You can find crazy reduced rates for less.
Since I’m a blogger, I usually get most of my hotels for free so that makes everything even more affordable. But if you’re not a blogger (I promise my life is not all free hotels and food), I suggest looking at hostels or Airbnb. You can usually get reduced rates on hostels if you’re traveling with a group. As always, if you want to travel at a peak time, like Fashion Week or in the middle of the summer, the rates will be higher, so I suggest planning your trip more than two months in advance so you’re saving as much as you can.
In the meantime, I’ve got two M.I.N.T talks lined up before February 8th, and I just ordered the coolest M.I.N.T postcards! They’ve got all of the important hotlines on them, as well as Steve’s contact info, so if you’re a student looking for more information on our project or looking for any therapy, you’ve now got all of the info you need to reach out.
