Thousand Wonders

As we enter the new year of 2017 younger genertations are becoming more open to having those "once in a life time opportunities" than the newest and trending material goods. The millennial generation is opening their minds, and wallets to travel, concerts, protests, and all sorts of the endless amazing current events that the world has to offer. Personally as a millennial, and someone who has had a small bit of travel experience I highly suggest taking your funds and spending them on the trip of a life time. Last year on this exact day I was landing on the island of Oahu Hawaii, and had the experience of a life time. I realize that I am extremely privilaged to have gone on this trip, and I can honestly say that it had inspired my passion to see as much as the world as I possibly can.

If you have never been to Hawaii I highly suggest that you start to save for a trip, and catch the earliest flight that you possibly can. Hawaii was by far the trip of a life time for me (but im only 19 so hopeful for more), and I had gotten to experience the beauty of its small land mass with many of my good friends. Hawaii and its crystal blue waters, sunny blue skies, and beautiful flora leaves you in a state of pure euphoria which allows you to fully experience the island to your fullest. As you spend time in the lush island of Oahu you will encounter some of the happiest people that you will ever meet, and of course the famous juicy Hawaiian grown pineapple. Spending time in this enchanging state will leave you wanting more, and more while never failing to meet high expectations.

When spending time in this gorgeous tropical state make sure to spend more time experiencing the moments that you may never get back. Spending too much time behind a camera, or cell phone will distract you from being in the moment, and you will ultimatley miss the feeling of complete satisfaction. The United States is extremely diverse, and has much to offer, but unless you go out and experience what it is blessed with to make its boarders you miss out on the true American greatness. The short amount of time I had spent in Hawaii does not compare to any other experience that I have ever had. Travel allows you to want more, and allows for personal growth; allow yourself to experience your life by seeing what the world has to offer.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
