Hello, Hola, Bonjour!

The first post…such a daunting task, or maybe I’m thinking too much. If you have stumbled upon my blog, welcome! My inspiration for this blog, as well as many other actions in my life, was of course my mom. She had the idea that I start writing about my adventures and experiences onlineĀ and of course, being the twenty-something I am, shrugged off the idea as impossible. But the idea stuck and soon I was thinking about article titles and advice columns. Actually starting the blog was a different task though, I could barely decide on a name, let alone what theme or font to choose. But, alas, I made my decision on the title. Passports and coffee…I thought it was pretty catchy and easy to remember. Why did I choose this? Well, first because I love to travel, I hope one day to fill my passport with stamps from multiple countries. I will also be giving advice and writing about my experiences while studying abroad. Second, coffee and I have a love affair like no other. In other words, I’m addicted to coffee. Every country differs in their coffee selection and I plan on trying all of them…Okay maybe not all of them but pretty close. Along with traveling and coffee, I also dabble in the style department. I try and follow the trends, I may not be able to afford some of the very expensive ones (I’m looking at you Michael Kors and Karl Lagerfeld) but what I can do is offer some less expensive alternatives. Again I’ve learned from the best (my mother) on how to bargain shop, but I also know how to splurge every once in while. Overall I hope you find some of my advice and experiences to be helpful and possibly even entertaining. does one end a blog post? I’m still working on that one…
