Charming Transylvania

When you think of Romania the first thing that comes to a lot of peoples' minds is Transylvania and Dracula. It is true that there is plenty of myth around the infamous vampire, however Romania is much more than this one story.

Three days in Dubrovnik

You may have heard the ancient city of Dubrovnik referred to as the Pearl of the Adriatic. Standing on the top of the cliff looking down, I felt I had discovered a fantastical place that wasn’t quite of this world. That feeling never left throughout my three days in Dubrovnik.
