Thinking of Traveling to Portugal? Consider Porto Instead of Lisbon

Most people who travel to Portugal go to Lisbon. This makes a lot of sense. Lisbon is the capital and the most populated city in Portugal. In my opinion, Lisbon is overrated and should be skipped. This comes from someone who grew up in a small city, lived in NYC for many years, and now lives in a tiny town-like city. I’ve been to Portugal several times, and I wouldn’t…

8 Less Talked About Reasons the Netherlands Is a Great Place to Live

Financial Health Doesn’t Happen Overnight, but It Can Be Achieved

Please take note this blog post contains affiliate links. Anyone who knows or follows me on social media knows I’m a fanatic about personal finance.

I have learned how to live with almost…

Better Than My Grandma’s Apple Cake

Many cultures have their own version of apple cake. Growing up, apple cake was made up of a total of seven ingredients. The cake was good. But now that I’ve tried many other types of apple cake, I realize that the apple cake that my grandma made lacked depth. If she makes it, I’ll still absolutely eat it. It tastes delicious. But I would prefer to make this new recipe…

5 Important Lessons I Learned After a Year of Freelancing in the Netherlands

Freelancing was something I never thought I would do as my primary job. Over the years, I have taken various projects here and there, but maybe a few projects every few months, if that. But sometimes, life gives you a choice about your future, and you must make a monumental decision. That’s what happened to me in the spring of 2021. I had to choose whether to work for someone…

If Croatia Isn’t On Your Bucket List, You’re Missing Out!

Croatia was one place that had been on my bucket list for a very very long time. I’d heard about and seen photos and videos of its beauty, but never managed to go until now. My sister Chaya and I took a 10-day trip together to 3 different European countries. We visited Portugal, Croatia, and Austria. By far, Croatia was the most beautiful and most memorable destination on our trip.…

You’ll Want To Eat These Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I’m not a huge raisin fan, but in cookies, I’ll eat them. Instead of following the recipe exactly, I also added some chunks of chocolate and changed some other things. These cookies were so scrumptious! My partner took them to work and not a single one was left. So here’s the recipe so you can make it. Ingredients 1/2 cup and 6 tablespoons butter 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup…
