A Girl and 21 States

Over two years ago I wrote a story about a Nebraska native turned Peace Corps volunteer who had been to over 21 countries. Today I want to bring you a continuation of that story by talking to another Nebraska girl who has been to over 21 STATES! (37 to be exact) Logan Koepke is the…

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…

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…

Vegas Is Not All Drinking

I recently graduated from college (I know, hard to believe right) and my parents took me to Vegas, Nevada to celebrate! We went with close family friends and stayed from Dec. 16th to early in the morning the 20th. And since we live in a state where casinos are illegal (thanks, Nebraska) we made sure…

Studying Abroad: What to Expect

I am a proud UNO Maverick – I love my school, I do. But, I have to admit one of the reasons I chose this university is because I found it relatively cheap (as universities go) and knew I could afford to study abroad. From the moment I started applying to colleges, I KNEW I…

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…
