Appenzell Switzerland: Swiss Countryside and a Quaint Mill

Let me introduce you to the cutest town in Switzerland called Appenzell. When my sister and I were in Zurich everyone told us that it would be what most tourists picture all of Switzerland, and they weren’t wrong. From the lush rolling hills, to a downtown area that looks straight out of a fairytale, what’s not to love! The town even had a festival while we were there, and I randomly got interviewed on Swiss TV. Talk about taking the blog international hahah While we were in Appenzell we stayed…

A Few Days in Zurich

One of my favorite things to stumble across…

A Non-Monument Filled Weekend in DC

DC is a really fun city to visit, talk some politics (or not because I hate talking politics), and see all of the classic American monuments we have grown to love. However, after having seen all of the typical DC hot spots, I was ready to explore some new areas on my most recent trip to the city. A former manager of mine (way back from 2013 when I first started working) and now just really good friend, recently bought a new condo in the Logan Circle area in DC,…
