For Millennials in today’s digital age, travel is no longer a luxury, it's a necessity. With pictures of exotic destinations and adrenaline-pumping adventures constantly flooding our social media feeds, we're no longer striving to keep up with the Joneses with nice houses and shiny new cars, we're striving to one-up the @Joneses with exotic vacations and envy-inducing lifestyles. We may have our phones out all the time (and admittedly are pretty reliant on our Uber drivers' iPhone chargers), but, if you think we're just Snapchatting and texting, you're missing the biggest and most important marketing trend of this decade.
A piece of writing originally featured on my personal blog - The Expat Mama.com - which Huffington Post republished earlier this year. It has received over 2000 likes on Facebook and has been shared worldwide.
What do you get when you mix punks, hipsters, cops and a yearly street riot? Berlin Kreuzberg.
Beach bars in a landlocked city? Whaddaya, nuts? Why yes. Yes I am. But you haven't lived until you've sipped an umbrella drink sitting on graffiti-ridden junk furniture with a view of an abandoned factory. I wrote this piece for a travel website.
For more than 6 years I lived in Berlin. I arrived five minutes late to the zeitgeist, but I soaked up beer and counter-culture in equal measure. In addition to my popular Berlin blog 'Dunkin' Berliner,' I also wrote destination stories for various travel websites. I also provided the photography for the stories.

I established High Heels and a Backpack travel blog in early 2016 as a means of documenting my travel experiences and inspiring other women to travel solo. Since its launch, I have acquired a large follower base of over 50,000 subscribers worldwide and the site receives 30,000 unique monthly visitors. Through this forum, I have worked with prestigious brands and tourism boards around the globe. Recent clients include Abraham Tours (leading Israeli tour operator), The Korean Tourism Organization, The Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Coca Cola, and Emirates. As a result of the impact of my blog, I have been featured on several leading travel websites and I have produced freelance travel content for Forbes, Tripzilla Magazine, Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Flight Centre, and The Huffington Post among others.

My husband is the “Grill Master”. However, I don’t always want to wait for him to whip up something yummy on the grill. I use these tips for Grilling Well to Eat Well. Instead, I want to master grilling myself, so I can eat well, even when he’s not home. For the people who have yet to master the grill, these tips are for you. You don’t have to Burn Everything It took me a while to realize that grilling doesn’t mean burning. When I grill our favorite food, Canadian Turkey, I make sure I use indirect heat. This means that you don’t sear the food with the heat on blast. You turn down the heat and let it cook slow. Cooking meat slow will give you a tender flavor you’ll love. Try Sizzling to get that Big Flavor When cooking up some Canadian Turkey, I’m not afraid to do a little sizzling. Sizzling comes down to adding a little BBQ sauce and letting it cook onto the meat. Of course, you can also smoke your meat to get that big, delicious flavor you long for.
What is beer cheese soup? Unlike French onion soup, there’s no written record on how beer cheese soup originated. What I know is that this is a very popular appetizer and dish in Midwest region particularly in Kentucky and Wisconsin. In fact, a friend who is from Milwaukee says beer cheese soup is a fixture at every pub and restaurant in the city. That’s not really a shocking because Wisconsin is popular for the two main ingredients of this soup — beer and cheese. Of course, the beer cheese soup in Wisconsin is a lot different from what the medieval people enjoyed back in the day. You can now see and enjoy beer soup flavored with spices. In Wisconsin, I was told that beer cheese soup is often served with popcorn. I’m unsure why they do that, but I was told that one theory is that popcorn is often served free in pubs and bars. So patrons usually sprinkle popcorn on their beer cheese soup. It’s really up to you what you would use as a topping for your beer cheese soup. What I can assure you is that this soup is quite easy to prepare.
