VPN stands for “Virtual Private Network”, and it really is a great tool to have nowadays. VPN’s can serve several purposes, and two of the main ones purposes are: it can help you watch TV shows even if you are in an unauthorized location and it can help to protect your data when you are using free public wifi.
Basically, a good VPN will hide your true location, for both your own convenience and privacy. I would recommend reading this article by PC Mag to really understand what a VPN does, and why it is necessary.
There are many VPN options out there such as Nord VPN, Surfshark, etc. There are different VPN’s because not all users need the same type of features. Features such as amount of people who can simultaneously use the VPN, data encryption, location services, etc. will vary, so be sure to research which VPN best suits your needs. Ultimately, I choose to use ExpressVPN because it has great security features, it allows for 5 simultaneous connections on different devices, and has many server locations. At around $10 a month or so, it is one of the most expensive VPN’s out there. However, for VPN’s, you often get what you pay for (cheaper VPN’s still work but have less features, options, security, etc.).
Express VPN works on almost any type of device: Iphone, Ipad, Mac, so I would recommend it for anyone who uses the Internet often. It may take a little time to get adjusted to using a VPN, but it can help to protect you in the long run.
Be sure to check out what VPN would work best for you, and maybe you will end up getting ExpressVPN also!

This post has now been updated to reflect a new ratings system that I have implemented, which is scored as follows:
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
