We were basically children in Chicago but it’s fine, that’s how you stay young!
Last year, I flew to Chicago with Theresia, Gabe, and Austin from the moment we left work until very late at night before coming back to work Monday. We did so much in the few days we spent there!
Our airbnb stay was awesome, we went with 3 bedrooms because Ricky was in our original plans to come but something came up. If you’re interested in the newly renovated airbnb close to so many things within Chicago, here it is. *I just became an airbnb associate so we both get some credit towards my future travels if you do book a stay!
Food we ate/things we did:
-Top of the Willis Tower
-Boat Tour Chicago
-Navy Pier (did not feature)
-Museum of Science and Industry Chicago
-Lou Malnati’s Deep Dish Pizza
-Imperial Lamian Soup Dumplings & Hand Pulled Noodles
Stay tuned for more of mine/our adventures!! xx Sam
Hey guys! Right after graduating from University and receiving my degree in computer science, I traveled to London to visit a friend! Ngoc was studying abroad at the time which lined up perfectly for a chance to explore places together.
It was my first time flying alone out of the country and I’m grateful for the polite strangers who helped me navigate along the way!
Here are some pictures from the trip:
Of course we had to go to the Tower Bridge! We also took a day trip to the White Cliffs of Dover which was such a beautiful site and world away from inner London which was only a 2 hour train ride + 1 hour hike away (one way.)
A lot of the pictures are also included in my vlog, London was very instagrammable! Ngoc brought me to some “hidden gems” like God’s Own Junkyard, which was basically this place that collected neon signs & props from movie sets, strip clubs, and places that would have these.
We were literally running around for 8 days straight–can you believe it?! As the grand finale for our adventures, we went to Sketch London for breakfast on the day of my departure. I’d been dreaming of going to Sketch for a few years.
The rooms are just so aesthetically pleasing to the eye and don’t even get me started on the cool INDIVIDUAL POD RESTROOMS. I knew of it before my first trip to London with my university’s entrepreneurial student organization but it’s very hard to convince college students to drop ~$40 for breakfast or ~$75 for high tea just for the experience combined with our limited time to explore!
Check out the video for a better look at the experiences!
Hey guys! Your girl had a much needed weekend getaway in the mountains; we went to the Ice Castles and snow tubing at Loon Mountain (New Hampshire).
We stayed at an airbnb in Twin Mountain, NH; please use my referral so I can save on future trips if you haven’t made an account yet and are planning to anyways (not sponsored btw, you just get $55 and I get $30 off or something).
Things You Should Pack
All kinds of warm winter gear; especially the following:
Warm boots/shoes (I brought my LL Bean duck boots that I added winter-fur soles to but that lowkey became cold too, luckily I also packed a pair of Uggs and my toes stayed toasty in those!)
Snow pants, maybe not needed for Ice Castles but definitely for snow tubing
Check out my vlog above to come along with us on our adventures there + some food places we went to and other random things.
Thanks for watching/reading, I hope you have an /ice/ day!
Hey guys! Sarah and I flew down to Texas to visit our cousin Daniel in Dallas for a week this past summer. We also road-tripped to Austin and declared BUC-EE’s or bust.
I guess things really are bigger in Texas… we pit-stopped at the World’s Largest Convenience store! It had 60+ gas station pumps as well.

A short video of my experiences at the Enactus National Competition USA 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri aka KCMO. The event took place from May 21-23rd and my team was there from the 20th to 24th to explore the city and participate in the presentation and events. We are excited to go to the Enactus World Cup in September!
Hey guys! Last month I had the opportunity to visit Chicago for a few days. Most of these pictures were taken on the same day of exploring. I uploaded a short travel vlog;
Of course, I had to go to Millenium Park first to see THE BEAN!
We walked from Millenium Park to Navy Pier to meet up with the guys in our group and along the way, we came across these views!
There’s way to many pictures and things we saw throughout the city so I just chose a set of photos from the same general area.
Last but not least, you cannot go to Chicago without trying deep dish pizza. We chose Giordano’s!
Pro tip: DO NOT order appetizers before getting your own personal pan pizza. When they say deep dish, it’s thicc af. I could barely get through half of mine after having mozzarella sticks and other cheese-related samplers.
