Are you looking for quick girls’ trip that won’t break the bank? Well, look no further than South Dakota!

2019 Year In Review

2019 was a huge year for me. I got to cross some things off of my bucket list – some travel related and some not travel related. I also learned more about myself (if that was even possible), started my first post-grad job, moved into my own apartment and even adopted two cats of my…

There’s something about small, seaside towns with chilly mornings and mountains facing the ocean that make my heart sing. I think this is…

Sunny in Seattle

A Quick Weekend Guide in Seattle Month 4 of 2019 took me to Seattle, WA! I wanted to go during April because I was hoping I would get to experience a little bit of rain (after all, what more is Seattle known for?) To my surprise, it was actually really nice out! It sprinkled a little bit…

Lost my Phone to Mardi Gras

Yes, I got my phone stolen and yes, I would go back. Mardi Gras is an incredible out-door festival, cultural experience and trip of a lifetime all in one. Thankfully, I did not go alone this time. My friends and I left early Sunday Morning for New Orleans and were welcomed by very humid weather…
