Hi there! My name is Taylor Pepper Saia. Welcome to my travel blog!


If you’re new here, welcome! Let me tell you a little bit about myself: I’m a recent graduate of American University in Washington, DC. In college, I loved exploring DC, singing with my a cappella group, On A Sensual Note (OASN), and lounging on the quad between classes. During my junior year, I studied abroad for a year in the South of France, which was a beautiful dream. I grew so much there, really improved my French, and realized a lifelong goal of living abroad.


During the summer before my senior year, I knew I wanted to get back out in the world. A full-time job or graduate school – as respectable as they may be – couldn’t satiate my need to see new places, taste new foods, and meet people seemingly very different from myself. So, I decided to apply for a Fulbright Scholarship to Indonesia, which I was stunned and honored to receive.

Now, I am here in Indonesia, teaching English at a senior public high school, serving as a cultural ambassador on behalf of the US, and singing my little heart out.


I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I like writing them. Thanks for stopping by, and good journey!

  2. Hey Taylor,

    It looks like you’ve done what I am about to go. I go to school at American University and am studying at SKEMA for a semester. What would you say are the best spots in Juan-les-pins/Antibes area for nightlife and snorkeling/cliff-diving? And how did you start this blog?

    Thanks for the help

    1. Hey Heather,
      I’m glad you found my blog and even glader you have the chance to live it up on the Côte d’Azur for a semester! There is so much to do and see, but in terms of nightlife, Juan-les-Pins has some really good clubs (like, Le Village, Pam-Pam, or L’Esterel), and Antibes mostly has good bars/cafés/brasseries (like, The Hop Store, The Blue Lady, and others close to the port). Choopy’s, a cupcake café, is also a must-see during the day. In terms of cliff-diving, the Cap d’Antibes is the best area, though you might have to find your way to the cliffs (by foot), as many of them are hidden from the street. I started this blog through WordPress and a working knowledge of HTML. Bon courage et profitez bien!
      – Taylor
