It’s wild.

My grad program had a conference in Leiden. It is like a mini Amsterdam with less tourists and less fear of getting hit by a bike at all times.

Enjoy a few photos!

iPhone Photos from Life Lately

33990076_10211495493364304_2748167324363128832_nHello friends, how are you? I’ve been having fun traipsing around Europe with my little brother and our childhood friend who is conveniently studying abroad in Germany this summer. It feels so nice to be able to let loose completely and be around people who’ve known you your whole life. There’s nothing like it. After I spend time with them, I always stop and think why did that feel so different?

Because being known is everything. It is so important and I’ve missed that feeling a bit this year. You don’t realize how much your body and soul needs to be known until you’re placed in a new environment. I’m so glad to share these summer months with them. Below are a few photos from life lately. Enjoy!33745830_10211495460163474_4496772574990041088_nThe neighborhood of Kreuzberg was my favorite spot in Berlin. So funky. So punk.

Well, enough said.33847724_10211495459803465_7319151032942985216_nHiking to the petting zoo with a class from school. The bus didn’t show up so it turned into a rather long adventure, but at least the scenery was pretty ;p

Have a good one!
