Denver Travels

 In July I flew to Denver to visit my friend Anna who moved there last year. Hannah and I made a plan to visit Anna in Colorado for a week and it actually worked out perfectly. Hannah flew from New York City and I flew from Chicago to meet Anna in Denver on the same day. We spent the week exploring Denver and Golden, we hiked up Horse-tooth Reservoir (which almost killed me), and we laughed so much. Hannah's friend Emily was in town, so she swung by and spent a couple of nights with us, too! I had met her once before in NYC at a coffee shop in Brooklyn. It's so nice to catch up with these girls every year because we are constantly in different states and even different countries!

I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the MCA Chicago David Bowie Is exhibition last year. It informed and astounded me how one man could be so incredibly creative. Thank you for your beautiful art, David Bowie! You will live on for the rest of eternity.

Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Key Largo & Key West Florida

 After a 45 minute uber ride from Fort Lauderdale to Miami, I arrived in South Beach with a group of four friends on my first night in Florida last month. It was amazingly warm and humid at 1 AM with frequent short rain showers throughout the days. My friends are studying abroad and working temporarily in the United States until they go back home to France. It was exciting to see them experience Florida for the first time. I stayed with them in an International Traveler Hostel right on South Beach in Miami. The nightlife was crazy and so colorful there and I even got to hold a yellow boa constrictor on the street. We woke up the next morning, headed to the beach and had brunch by the ocean. My parents picked me up the next morning to head to Coral Gables for the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens which was mind-blowing paradise! After Coral Gables, we drove my parent's rental car to my Grandma Kutch's little trailer on the ocean in Key Largo. The next day my father and I snorkeled at John Pennecamp Coral Reef State Park in the warm ocean water off the coast of Key Largo. We ate stone crab for the first time and drove down to Key West on my last day where we explored much of the island. I also had way too much key lime pie and red wine! It was truly a dream and I can't wait to visit again next year! It was a dream to return to Key Largo after all these years!
