5 Tips for Hassle-Free Airplane Travel | TheDanceGrad.com5 Tips For Hassle-Free Airplane Travel

In a previous post I wrote, Carry-On Essentials Packing List, I mentioned that I’m a frequent traveler. During my most travelled year yet, I took about 35 airplane trips in that year alone. Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that I do know a lot about traveling, packing, and airport experiences. Read More…

 

 

 

 
Carry-On Essentials Packing List | TheDanceGrad.comCarry-On Essentials Packing List

I do a lot of traveling. I don’t travel for work (yet), but I just travel very often because I love it and I’m fortunate enough to be able to travel a lot. While I was in graduate school, I traveled so much that I counted about 35 airplane rides in one year alone. Thankfully they all weren’t long haul trips, and some of them within Europe were only about 2 hours or less. What I’m trying to say is that I know how to pack… really, really well. I did a post about packing tips for short European budget airlines (Easy Jet, Ryan Air, etc.) about a year ago, but I haven’t done one since, so I figured, why not? Read More…

 

Why You Should Study Abroad At Any Age | TheDanceGrad.comWhy You Should Study Abroad At Any Age

A few weeks ago, I listened in on the live feed of the White House Travel Blogger Summit in Washington D.C. (I basically invited myself), and I was inspired to write a post on the importance of studying abroad at ANY age. The folks over in Washington D.C. were discussing the benefits of having young students travel and study abroad, but what my new favorite travel blogger, Paula Froelich (who also happens to be the editor and chief of Yahoo Travel), pointed out was that it is also equally as valuable for people who aren’t students to travel the world as well.

Sri Lanka Travel Blog | TheDanceGrad.comSri Lanka Travel Vlog

So, I’ve already shown you the elephant safari that I went on while I was traveling around Sri Lanka in November 2014, but here is a video blog of the sites from the rest of the trip. I’ve managed to condense all the footage from the 10 days I was there into a solid 5 minutes of all the best views and most interesting experiences. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, and it was very different from anything I’ve ever experienced before. Read More…

 

 

Elephant Safari in Sri Lanka | TheDanceGrad.comElephant Safari in Sri Lanka

As I was editing my video footage from my recent trip to Sri Lanka and sipping my Ceylon tea (a.k.a. English Breakfast tea, which is imported from Sri Lanka), I was instantly transported back to my trip. Yes, it was hot, humid, and sticky due to the copious amounts of sunscreen and bug repellant that I can to keep layering on, but overall it was quite the experience. I have never seen elephants before that were not enclosed in a zoo, and this elephant safari was definitely something that I will never forget. Read More…

 

 

London Travel Vlog ~ Walking Tour | TheDanceGrad.comLondon Travel Vlog | London Walking Tour

So, I’ve been traveling quite a bit during the month of November 2014. My first stop (as it usually is) was London, UK, and while I was there, I took a fairly long walking tour on my own, and I passed through some of London’s most iconic sites such as Hyde Park, Marble Arch, Oxford Street… Read More…

 

 

 

 

Why Traveling Is Always A Good Idea | TheDanceGrad.comWhy Traveling Is Always A Good Idea

Traveling is something that means a great deal to me. When I was in high school, my friends use to talk about wanting to travel the world, and I always remember thinking to myself, “Why would anyone want to leave the country? We have all that we need right here.” I just didn’t get it. I didn’t own a passport until I was 16 years old… Read More…

 

 

 

Is NYC for Me? | TheDanceGrad.comIs NYC for Me?

Ever since I returned back to The States from London about 5 months ago (woah, has is really been that long?), I’ve been doing some SERIOUS life reevaluating. What role does dance have in my life? Where do I want to live? What kind of life do I really want to lead? And while I don’t necessarily have the answers to all these questions completely ironed out quite yet, I feel like I’m definitely on the road to just figuring sh** out… Read More…

 

 

 

Travel Tips: Amsterdam - The Dance GradTravel Tips: Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of those cities that has a stigma attached to it due to their legalization of cannabis and prostitution. To be completely honest with you, I was a bit nervous about going there because of that very reason, but once I arrived, I was surprised by what I found. Not only was it a very quaint and picturesque city, but the people were very nice, and the food was fairly decent. Here are my travel tips for visiting Amsterdam! Read More…

 

 

How To Pack for a European Budget Airline Trip - The Dance GradHow To Pack for a European Budget Airline Trip

About 2 years ago, I was introduced to the joys of European budget airlines. Everyone always says how easy it is to travel within Europe, but you never fully understand until you’ve actually experienced it. To put it into terms that Americans can relate to, its basically like driving from state to state… except it can be cheaper, takes less time, and you’re far more restricted in terms of packing (because you’re dealing with airline restrictions). From London, it takes about 2 hours to fly to… Read More…

 

 

Travel Tips: Los Angeles, CASurviving Your Visit to Los Angeles, CA

I have a special place in my heart for Los Angeles because that is where I spent my college years. I just recently provided a coworker with a list of “worth while” LA attractions, and it inspired me to write a post about it. Remembering all the things that I loved about LA made me feel extremely nostalgic, not only for my college years that slipped away from me so quickly, but also for the place where I could go to the beach in the middle of October and not freeze to death.

Travel Tips: BudapestTravel Tips: Budapest

For most people that I know, traveling to Budapest, Hungary is not number one on their “must do” list, and I can sort of understand why. At first glance, there is nothing extraordinarily famous to see, and it seems very similar to slightly more popular cities in its architecture and cuisine. In fact, its often called the “Paris of the east” when referring to its romantic vibe and night time scenery, which in itself describes a notion of repetition as a tourist destination in Europe. Some of you may ask, “Why would I travel to a city like Paris when I can just go to Paris?” Well, as someone who has been to both cities, I believe that I have the knowledge to tell you why, in my opinion, Budapest is worth it!

4 Things You Must Know About Moving to London4 Things You Must Know About Moving to London

Ever since I moved to London back in 2011, so many people have asked me if I have any tips or advice on how I did it. Therefore, I’ve decided to compile a list of things that everyone one needs to know in order to leap across the pond to hang out with Big Ben and The Queen just like I did (we’re all BFFs)! Read More…
