Onwards To The Land of the Morning Calm

So I'm moving to South Korea. For those of you who have been following along here on Very Nerdy Curly and on twitter won't be too surprised I think. I've talked about it before, quite seriously actually. I've tweeted in mini essays about it and why I think it'd be a great idea and your [...]

How Budapest Surprised Me on Your Friend Elle

I've got another post up on Your Friend Elle, and this time it's a two parter! Back when I was studying in London I got a mad case of wanderlust (ok, this is a fairly regular occurrence), and I randomly picked a city on the map and headed off. Budapest surprised me in multiple ways. [...]

I’m driving to Russia… wait what?!

So remember when I wrote about my inability to stay still? Well, travel has won out, but not in the way you may think. No, I'm not going Korea. Instead I'm driving to Russia. It's not until July, but it's one hell of an adventure and one I've wanted to do for years. It's called [...]

My Brief Stint on Japanese TV

My work with The Baker Street Babes has afforded me a lot of amazing opportunities. I've been on red carpets at award shows, I've interviewed actors and authors, I've gotten special passes... tons of stuff. It's insane and I'm always so very thankful and humbled by everything we've been able to do. A few weeks ago [...]

On My Inability To Stay Still

I am 27 and I have traveled to 29 countries. I've lived abroad in three. I've traveled by car, by bus, by rickety airplane, by ferry, and by foot. I've been places I loved and yearn for every day and places that I have no interest in going to again. Since I graduated college in [...]

A Venetian Adventure on Your Friend Elle

Hey everyone! Sorry it's been so long since a post. I finished my MA in Radio at Goldsmiths and moved back to the USA from London. It's been a bit of a time and as I job search in the states, I am constantly reminded (& yearn for) my travels around the globe. So, when [...]

The Way Station: Steampunk, Doctor Who, and total drunken Nerdvana [NYC, USA]

The magical existence of The Way Station may not be new to many of you. It's been a staple in Brooklyn and nerdy drinkers in NYC for the past three years, but it's a place that deserves constant attention. It's just that cool. The Jules Verne inspired bar with a Whovian twist is on Washington Ave, not [...]

27 at 27

Heyyyyy it's my birthday! I turn twenty-seven today... yikes! I wanted to do something for myself this year. It's easy to forget all you've done in your life as each year rolls on. I'm constantly told by people that I've done so much and that they're jealous and I'm always left perplexed. What have I done that's so extraordinary? Yes, okay, I've traveled quite a lot, but I never thought of that as extraordinary. And then I listed all the countries I've been to (28 at the moment), and then I really though... really thought, about what I've done in the past twenty-seven years. And the more I thought about it and the more I wrote things done, the more I felt incredibly humbled and very lucky.
