My bi-yearly trips to New York have become one of my favorite times of year, as it allows me to see the city in both summer and winter. I get the chance to explore and catch up with friends before starting work for the trade show. This time around, we were scheduled on an early […]

I’ve been working as a freelance writer for the last five years, albeit not yet full time. What I’ve learned is that writing is, in the words of Lean In, not a ladder, but a jungle gym. There’s no direct path to where you want to be, no perfect job or internship that opens doors. You […]
My degree is a Bachelor’s in Political Science from the College of Charleston, currently framed and leaned against my closet door, gathering dust since 2010. I’m frequently asked why I got that degree and by some, why I wasted my parents’ money on a degree I wasn’t even going to use. I sometimes wonder that […]
From the moment the ferry got close to Koh Tao, I was already filled with regret. After spending the last week and a half on Koh Samui for my friend’s wedding, I thought I’d had enough island time, but that wasn’t the case. While parts of Koh Samui were certainly beautiful, particularly the area where […]
I loved my time in Puerto Rico, especially the crystal blue waters of Vieques. This video is a short feature of what we did with our time there, from swimming on Playa Grande and snorkeling at Mosquito Pier to the tiny plane that transported us over there.
It took a month of seeing all of Vietnam, from the stalls of Hanoi to the quiet shores of Mui Ne, to fully appreciate the country. So when we arrived in Saigon, I felt like I needed to cap off the experience with as much history and culture as possible. Saigon’s Reunification Palace, known also […]
Digital nomads love the cafes in Southeast Asia for their quality coffee, fast WiFi and space to work in. Sammi and I found ourselves spending lots of time in these cafes, whether it be killing hours before an overnight train or simply taking the chance to cool off in the air conditioning. I was impressed […]
There are few moments when I crave a fixed life and a place to call my own, filled with my favorite things. I’m typically content with no more items than could fit in the trunk of my car. But when I opened the door to our rental house on Vieques, El Dormilion, I opened the […]
If you saw the last few editions of Travel Writing Round Up, welcome back! A lot are repeats from last month, but new posts are denoted with stars. I have checked all the links to ensure that they are still valid, but please let me know if I have missed one. Feel free to shoot me […]
As Americans, the first question we usually ask someone is, “What do you do for a living?” It’s a question I usually hate to answer, as I don’t know how to best sum up what it is that I do with my time. I usually say I’m a writer, but I also work two other […]
Everyone always thinks that this blog name, Caroline in the City, is a play on the novel and subsequent television and film franchise Sex and the City, when in fact it’s based on the 1990s sitcom. But I play off of the show anyways. My Twitter bio reads, “A lil bit Samantha Brown, a lil bit […]
In our five days on the island of Vieques, we drove our rented Jeep down nearly every paved road and some that weren’t. We explored as much of the island of possible, which is difficult when you consider how much of it, about half, is protected by the government and inaccessible to the public. On […]
