My August was spent in three of the most staggeringly different places I could have imagined – Belgrade, Dubrovnik, and Copenhagen.

The quick changes of scenery […]Read more "MONTH 08: BELGRADE"

Miraflores borders the beach and has all kinds of lovely neighborhoods with parks, […]Read more "Month 04: Lima"
