Tweet Oxford University, arguably the most prestigious in the United Kingdom, is actually made up of over 30 distinct colleges with their own emphases and history. They’re spread out all over town and are the spaces where the students learn, eat and live. Classes are held within each college, so it forms a tight-knit community. […]

Tweet The Caroline of 2002 is a shell of who I am today. If I saw her, I’m not sure I would recognize her. She spent the first few days of trips to Paris and London in the darkened hotel room watching television and hardly eating. She wouldn’t try new dishes and avoided leaving her […]
Tweet I’m as low key as they come in terms of beauty and fashion. I’m most comfortable in a soft vintage t-shirt and jeans with a pair of Converse. And my beauty regimen is even more limited, usually including tinted lotion and vaseline. I’ve heard it all over the years in regards to the rare […]
Tweet “You don’t even want to find a job. You just sit on your computer all day.” I flipped around at my then-boyfriend, incredulous. We were arguing about why I hadn’t found a “real” job yet and about my “hobby” of blogging. I should have known then, but I didn’t. It would be easy to […]
Tweet One of the perks of being a writer with a focus on the South is all of the fun and bizarre places and events I get to see. It’s the small towns and the festivals like the Tupelo Elvis Festival in Tupelo, Mississippi that I went to a few months back. Sometimes I just have […]
Tweet Whoever says that British food isn’t good, and is heavy and unhealthy, isn’t eating the right dishes. A common misconception is easily broken once you check out London’s ethnic eating enclaves and sit down for a true Sunday roast at a neighborhood pub. One of my favorite things about visiting a destination is checking […]
TweetI’m testing out a new feature called Behind the Curtain here where I talk about what’s going on with me beyond my travels. Because, believe it or not, most of my days are pretty basic. I travel a week or two out of every month and beyond that, it’s a lot of running errands, working […]
TweetThis is a new feature to Caroline in the City, the city guides to my favorite destinations in the world, featuring the best places to eat, stay and hang out. Beyond the famous tourist attractions like the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, Sydney is a chic, metropolis on the ocean. It’s surrounded on water […]
Tweet Every city has the up-and-coming neighborhood that has quickly gentrified and is popular with the young and hip. You might have a graffitied wall next to a boutique coffee shop. For New York, it’s Bushwick. For San Francisco, it’s the Mission. For Melbourne, it’s Brunswick. For Atlanta, it’s East Atlanta. And for London, it’s […]
Tweet One of the best things about living in Atlanta is the many places you can get to from there. I am 30 minutes away from the world’s busiest airport and within 8 hours of driving, I can get just about anywhere in the South. One of my closest friends moved a few hours south […]
