This is a response to “5 Beautiful Cities To Visit Before 25.

Traveling on a budget is essential to your twenties, whether studying abroad, taking a trip with your best friends, or going on a solo trip! Here are five great travel destinations to hit in your twenties and beyond, in no particular order.

1. Berlin, Germany

I feel like I can’t have a conversation about my study-abroad experience in Europe without raving about the week I spent in Berlin. No matter what you’re interested in - whether it’s food, history, culture, or art - Berlin has it. If you like music and dancing, the nightlife is unparalleled.

2. Tokyo, Japan

Okay, I admit I’m biased on this one. My boyfriend has lived in Tokyo for the past three years for college and although I haven't been (yet), I’ve seen how appealing the city is for those in their twenties. From savory snacks to sweet treats, Japan has so many options for you to eat. From the whimsical Ghibli Museum to the amazing traditional temples around the country, book your next destination trip to Japan!

3. Lima, Peru

My best friend from high school had an internship focused on sustainability in Peru last summer and I could not be more jealous. Peru is the perfect destination for those who enjoy the outdoors and love to have fun. Learn how to surf, go on hikes that lead to amazing views, and explore incredible Peruvian classic food!

4. Amsterdam, Netherlands

Although I wasn’t able to visit Amsterdam while studying abroad, I heard so many great stories from my peers about their experiences in the Venice of the North. Other than the obvious pass time, check out the largest flea market in Europe, attend a film festival, and go vintage shopping!

5. Madrid, Spain

I was lucky enough to visit Madrid while abroad as well and it was truly the best weekend trip ever. From eating tapas with friends to singing karaoke with strangers to enjoying different outdoor markets and everything in between, Madrid has so much to offer!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
