20 Photos to Inspire your next Road Trip

I don’t think it’s a secret how fond I am of road trips. There’s something about the wide-open road (maybe it’s because I grew up in the country as opposed to the city, who knows) that leaves me feeling peaceful and relaxed. I can do solo trips, like the time I slept in my car…

Irish Stories: Tombs, Tours, and Temples

This is my love letter to Ireland. My grandma has always talked about wanting to visit Ireland because of her Irish heritage. I too, have dreamed of this place for a long time and I’m extremely grateful to have experienced it with my mother. We flew into Dublin from Scotland and immediately realized that in…

A Touch of Scottish Heritage

Continuing on my dream United Kingdom trip, after England and Wales we finally made it to Scotland – home of the bagpipes and Haggis. Our three days are split up into three very different Scottish vacations and our story goes like this… Day 1: Edinburgh Castle + Fringe Festival We technically only had a half…

Foreign Films with A Movie Lover’s Review

I am beyond thrilled to write this post today. Besides traveling, I would say my other love in life is movies. I try to go to the movie theaters at least once a month, and I usually need to see the hottest blockbusters on the Thursdays they come out. But I also love Netflix and…

Why Wales Should be on your Travel Bucket List

Conwy, Wales has, in fact, taken the spot for my most favorite place ever (previously held by Cannon Beach, OR). Wales is the small, neighboring country of both England and Scotland, and although it isn’t as tourist heavy – it should be. Wales has it all: ancient castles, rolling green hills, beachside towns and beautiful…

A Tale of Two Cities: London and Liverpool

I have wanted to go back to London since I first stepped foot in the English capital about 9 years ago, and this month I made that a reality! I had been planning this big “United Kingdom” getaway for about half the year now, and I knew I wanted to spend some time in London…

Nashville on a Budget

Nashville is the home of country music and it was the 7th stop in my 12-month travel journey. When I think about the “top” travel destinations in the U.S., Nashville is definitely on that list, which is why I ventured down there the weekend after the 4th of July. Here is my music city experience,…

Niagara Falls in Under 24 Hours

My 2019, solo travel list has officially taken me international! This past weekend I flew into Buffalo for the sole purpose of seeing Niagara Falls – a bucket list experience that’s been on my mind for quite some time. After arriving in Buffalo, I learned the next bus that would take me to the falls…

How to Deal with a Layover in New Jersey

The first (and only other) time I was in New Jersey was when I was 16. I was heading to New York for my birthday, but our cab driver had the wrong address for our hotel. He took us in and out of New Jersey and back into New York what felt like a dozen…

May is for …. Maine!

“May is for …. Maine!” This is my exact thought process for picking where I wanted to spend my trip over Memorial Weekend, although, I have always wanted to go to Maine! There’s something about small, seaside towns with chilly mornings and mountains facing the ocean that make my heart sing. I think this is…
