The British Bucket List: High Tea at The Savoy


Going back to the U.K. has always felt a little bit like going home to me. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to live here a few years ago, and have since returned on an annual basis to visit friends and continue to build and reinforce my network of people in the…

Bucket List Adventure: Stand-up Paddle Boarding in Colorado!


Last month I turned 24, and in the spirit of trying new things every year, I decided I wanted to do something exciting that I’ve never done before. I had tons of adventures in my 23rd year of life–skydiving, hiking, zorbing, exploring movie sets, playing with tigers, communing with elephants, volunteering in Thailand and getting…

Bucket List Idea: Taking a Class at Canvas and Cocktails!


Sometimes, when I’m not traveling, I start to feel like my day to day life is really, really boring. I tend to fall into a routine, either with work or school, and maybe going out for food or drinks, usually to the same places. Recently, though, I’ve been wanting to branch out more and to…

My Favorite Things: The Bucket List Traveller’s Top 6 Teashops around the World


“Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage…” -Catherine Douzel

…and every real voyage deserves a good cup of tea. Tea is one of the few things that is commonly found in all corners of the world, from Yerba Mate in Argentina to English Breakfast in England, from Darjeeling in India to simple yet invigorating green teas in China. In Turkey everyone comes together over tiny shot-like cups of sweet apple tea or a pure black, from ice cream vendors to restauranteurs to shop keepers, uniting locals and tourists alike. Discovering a new teahouse or shop is, for me, a goldmine when traveling. I’ve rarely found a tea shop that I haven’t enjoyed, but some certainly stand out more than others. Here’s a list of my top six tea spots around the world, plus a bonus destination at the end!

City Guide: Prague


Location & Atmosphere

A pleasant mixture between modern and medieval, Prague is full of old-world sites, packed to the brim with cultural landmarks and experiences, and home to many, many gastronomical delights, including their famous dumplings and beer, which are always best when consumed together. The atmosphere is relaxed and candid, and there’s plenty of things to do!

Bucket List Item: Zorbing in Rotorua, New Zealand!


New Zealand is commonly renown for being the adventure capital of the world, and they’ve gone to great lengths to earn the name. One of my personal favorite offbeat adventure activities was invented in Rotorua, New Zealand, and predominantly involves two things: a giant, human-scaled plastic hamster ball and a hill. The premise behind the activity is pretty simple; you get the ball up to the top of the hill, get inside and then roll down the hill. Its called zorbing, and it’s actually super awesome.

Hobbit for a Day(trip)


Years before a trip to New Zealand was in the cards for me, I knew that I wanted to go explore the now-preserved movie set depicting The Shire, or the place where Hobbits live, in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies. I was always a big Lord of the Rings fan as a…

Skydiving in Queenstown, New Zealand!


As some of you may already know, I’ve been dying to go skydiving for a very long time! Having done a lot of rock climbing, zip lining and other adventure and thrill-seeking activities in my past, I wanted my skydive to be beyond exceptional. So I went out of my way to save my first…
