My CRAZY Uber Experience

Guys. GUYS! Boy do I have a story for you! I already told some people about my recent Uber experience but, I still thought it would be interesting enough to put on my blog and for other solo travelers to use as references when dealing with transportation mishaps.

22 Places in 22 Years

To celebrate my 22 years of life on this beautiful planet, I thought I would take 22 of the places I’ve traveled and write one word that sums up how I would describe that place / trip / time / etc. **Since I’ve traveled to more than 22 places, I alphabetized my list and went…

A Drive Through Kansas

How many of you have driven right through the Midwest in order to get to your ~preferred~ destination? I know I am guilty of this. I drove through Iowa to get to Chicago, I drove through western Nebraska to get to Colorado, and my family drives right through Kansas every year to get to the…

Fun in the Sun: Florida Vacay

It’s mid-July and it’s the first time I’ve gone swimming this summer. The only thing that makes that okay is that it was in the warm waves of the gulf. A week ago my grandpa took my family (plus Alyssa’s boyfriend) with him to go fishing down in Florida. I have been to Florida one…
