4 Quirky, Iowa Roadside Attractions

The Midwest is often classified as the “flyover states” … aka states you fly over to get to your final destination. This can also be applied to road trips. You might have to drive through some Midwest counties to get to your actual destination. And while I do believe the Midwest has some unique offers…

How to have a Relaxing Time in Arizona

Nebraska welcomed me back from sunny Arizona with clouds and low temps. And although my time in the desert was short, I proudly showed off my new suntan lines. This wasn’t my first time in Arizona (and won’t be my last) but so many years had gone by between my trips that it was hard…

Dog-sledding in Minnesota

A majority of my bucket list is just a list of places. Not necessarily “things to do” but more “places to go”. However, a small portion of my list does include things not tied to a specific area, like skydiving. And dog sledding. I dragged my friend Drea across the frigid Midwest to go dog-sledding…

What I Remember from Our Cruise

The beginning of this year has got me reflecting. Reflecting on the past, things I miss, things I wish I could go back to. But also, things I can’t believe I haven’t done yet. New things I’m adding to my bucket list. New things I want to do in this year that I haven’t being…

2020 Year in Review

I don’t think this will come as a shock when I say 2020 was one of the hardest years, not only for me, but for a lot of people as well. It was a year I couldn’t live out my travel plans. A year I was forced to be home alone for most of the…

The Small State of Rhode Island

Rhode Island’s title as the smallest U.S. state makes it the perfect place to take a one-day trip. After crossing off some major bucket list items driving through New Hampshire and Vermont, Rhode Island was our pit-stop state in between Connecticut and Boston – where we would be flying home from. Driving into the state,…

A Haunting in Connecticut (the blog)

Driving into New Haven, Connecticut, it was actually refreshing to see some water, as opposed to just trees. The Long Island Sound glistened next to the coastal town. Our one night here was brief, but it was exactly what we needed after spending days hiking in the forests of Vermont. The first thing on our…

How to Celebrate Fall in Vermont

If you clicked on this blog, chances are you love fall. It’s hard to not fall in love with the pretty trees, sweatshirt weather and everything else that comes with autumn: apple orchards, scary movies, and pumpkin flavored food. If you’re like me, however, you might live in a place where fall really only lasts…

New Hampshire: Live Free or Die

My mom, my sister and I jumped into our rented Mazda after flying from Omaha to Boston this past Saturday – we were headed 3 hours north to New Hampshire! As soon as we crossed the state line, we saw a huge sign that read “Welcome to New Hampshire! Live Free or Die.” Maybe it…

A CC's Photography Travel Q&A

Hi guys and welcome back to my side of the internet. It’s been way to long since I’ve posted on here. I think we all know how crazy the world has gotten and that just made it hard to travel / write about travel experiences. However, I really wanted to put together a travel Q&A…
