During the summer of 2016, I traveled overseas completely on my own for the first time. Over the course of seven weeks, I wandered through Scandinavia exploring the Swedish heritage of my grandmother, made my way to Berlin by train, and confronted the stark beauty of Iceland—stretching myself along the way.

Como Park Conservatory

While visiting my sister and her family in Minnesota this week, I made a special pit stop at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory in St. Paul. First opened to the public in 1915, the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory stands on half an acre, and its leafy, sun-drenched glass domes will keep you transfixed for hours.
