With the sudden arrival of winter and the fleeting moments of sunlight, I can’t help but reminisce about the two weeks I spent in Ghana this summer. Located in West Africa, Ghana is home to some of the most culturally enriching activities, delicious cuisines, and local...

The island of Jamaica radiates an infectious vibrancy, in the most chilled way possible. Every time I return to Jamaica, I have thought about what makes up this oxymoronic ambiance, and I’ve yet to put a finger on it. There is something that hangs in the air of the Jam...

London is great; we can all agree on that. Yet, it’s the sort of complicated love that demands you get away from the object of your affection every once in a while. A week on a sun-scorched beach would be ideal; however, for those of us who haven’t been blessed with en...
