Hello! This past weekend, I celebrated my 24th birthday, the second time being far away from home, but nevertheless with good company. I spent the weekend on a getaway to the wonderful city of Dijon (yes, "Dijon mustard" Dijon!) in eastern France, and I had a great time.

Happy Sunday, folks! 🙂 Today's "Sunday Slow Jam" is one from none other than Coldplay, titled "Up&Up" and taken from their 2015 album A Head Full of Dreams. https://youtu.be/BPNTC7uZYrI I stumbled upon this song back in May, actually at first from a beautiful piano cover by Adrian Lee on Youtube (you can check it out here). … Continue reading Colplay- Up&Up (SSJ #46)

Besides traveling, however, when I'm not out and about exploring somewhere new in the world, I'm at home...watching YouTube videos to satisfy my wanderlust! ...yes, I know. I'm crazy when it comes to thinking about travel almost 24/7, not just from strolling through Instagram feed after feed … Continue reading My Favorite Travel YouTubers!
