Paris Day 2

Bonjour! To kick off our day, my group and I grabbed a quick breakfast at our hostel and had a bit of free time before catching the Metro to Versailles. A few of us decided to take a 45 minute walk up the canal right near our hostel to enjoy the Paris morning and stretch…

Paris Day 1

Bonjour! I’m officially in Paris and having so much fun! I wanted to share just a few pictures of my first day. Bare with me, I’m writing on my phone while at breakfast! 🙂 On my first day, I visited and toured the Louvre before heading to Montmartre to watch the sunset from the Sacre…

Au revoir!

Today is the day! Time to tackle a new country – France. Tonight I’m boarding my direct flight to Paris and my spring break will officially begin halfway across the world. Here’s what’s on tap: Versailles – Everyone I have talked with has mentioned that this is a “must-see” while in Paris. I am so…

Prepping for Paris

My travels to Paris are only seven days away! The true countdown is on. I’m thrilled, but I have been so jammed with tests and activities all week that my planning has been slowed. Up until this week, I’ve been working to find safe food options in Paris when I am with the business school…

A Perfect Day

Here’s to the start of a new week and dreaming of a perfect day! When I was busying my way through my work this morning, my mom sent my family an article relating to a perfect day on Hilton Head Island. We had just been talking about our next trip down to the island this…

Confusion with Gluten

I have been thinking a lot about allergies lately, and not necessarily because of the foods I have eaten! I had an interview earlier this week and I spent much of my time talking about my past history with food allergies, how I found out that I was allergic, my work with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital…

Helpful Managers and Different Fryers

These are a few of my favorite things – helpful managers and different fryers! For dinner Saturday night in Columbus, we decided to try BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. This was my first visit to BJ’s, but they recently built a new location close to my apartment in Cincinnati, so I was eager to see what…

Mini Travels

They always say that traveling brings self confidence. I am a big believer that travel not only brings self confidence but also a little bit of peace of mind. In my opinion, travel is the best way to build up courage and peace when you have food allergies. It can be tough, and a really…

Are you Allergy-Friendly?

I, like many of you, find myself constantly wondering the answer to this question. Because of the severity of my allergies, I have to ask every waiter/waitress at every restaurant, read every label on every product, talk to every barista at every coffee shop, etc etc etc. It’s a big undertaking, but I know it…

Bonjour!

My next set of adventures is taking me to….. Paris, France! I am so fortunate to get to spend my last-ever-spring-break overseas this March! For the semester, I am taking a business course, “Luxury Marketing,” that explores the Parisian culture and style. The luxury marketing piece is of personal interest to me and it helps…
