Should I Move to Geneva?

My life is rapidly changing this year in a few ways: I’m graduating from university in Seattle in a few months, I’m turning 22 in August, and I’m moving back to Europe permanently after living a little over half of each year in Seattle for the past decade. Europe is my home, I’m from Poland, but I widely consider all of Europe to be my… Read More

Moving Back to Europe: My First Decisions

In November 2002, my parents made the radical decision to try something new and change up their life (and mine) a bit and move to Seattle, Washington from our home in southern Poland. Fourteen years later, we’re moving back to Europe. The past fourteen years of my life have been quite an adventure – I’ve spent almost every single July, August, and December back home in Poland… Read More

One More Year of University… then what?

Last Wednesday was my official last “first” day of uni.. that’s right, I’ve only got one more year of university left. And I couldn’t be more excited about that – not really because I don’t like my uni (I love it), but rather because I’m excited to begin a new journey in life and to finally *start* my life. I currently live a little over… Read More

The Next Report Format: Video Review?

I’ve written tons and tons of flight reviews throughout the years, and it takes me on average 4-6 hours from start to finish to write the average First/Business Class review of a long-haul flight. It isn’t that I don’t like it or anything, but it just really is time consuming. In the end, however, I always enjoy reading back the reports and reliving my experiences. That’s… Read More

Blogging isn’t Easy

As I approach my 500th blog post this week, I just wanted to take some time and reflect so far about my blog… Despite all of my best efforts to blog daily, it doesn’t always happen.. because unlike what some people might think, blogging isn’t easy. Blogging is actually quite hard. Finding a topic to write about takes some moments and then actually writing about… Read More

Focus on the Now, not the Future

April for me was both a wonderful and horrible month at the same time. It was wonderful because I took many trips with my friends and my parents to wonderful destinations and I had an amazing time. It wasn’t such a great month because of information overload and anxiety. I’m super OCD about literally *everything* and I just couldn’t keep up with everything going on,… Read More
