Life Update Dec. 2018

Wow I really slacked on posting this year! I just really haven’t had the energy or the time. Work is busy and I have a pretty active social life in NYC so it’s difficult! I barely have time to plan my trips and lately I’ve been disliking planning anything as it’s exhausting. I already ‘plan’ a lot for my job so the last thing I want to do is plan in my free time.

This year after Mexico City, I took a few more holidays. In the spring I went off to Ireland, which was lovely and had outstanding food but in general it was a bit too laid back for me. The highlight of the trip was seeing the Cliffs of Moher, which is about a couple of hours from Galway (great city, much nicer to visit than Dublin in my opinion).

 I wish I could’ve spent all day hiking along these cliffs but only had less than two hours :(

After Ireland, I did a long weekend in Chicago where it was basically a delicious food-filled trip. The highlights were Au Cheval (the best burgers ever!) and Fat Rice (amazing fusion Malaysian food).

Then for Labor Day weekend I flew over the pond to Sweden, where I visited Gothenburg and Stockholm. I had a wonderful time there, Stockholm is a lot bigger than I thought it would be and had no idea it made up of small islands. I was also in L.A. for work in September

But the trip I’ve been preparing for all year was my trip to PATAGONIA. I just got back a week ago and I really loved it. I spent most of my year planning and preparing for this trip. I did a ton of hiking on the weekends (in and out of NY). I’m going to try my best to recap it as it was amazing and I relied on a lot of other blogs for help as well. I also went to Mendoza, Argentina right after and it was beautiful so I’ll try to recap that as well.
