Utah’s Arches

I’ve always had this vision of me traveling across the country in a beat-up Jeep, sleeping in my car, not having a care in the world. That’s what led me to drive 12 hours to Utah’s Arches National Park and back, in ONE weekend. Because of this “idea” I had of myself, I also purposely…

5 Fun Things in Northern Cali

Wow, can you believe 5 years ago I wrote this blog post:  5 Fun Things in Southern California. And while San Francisco has been on my city bucket list for a while now, that last blog inspired the layout for this one. Part of my 2019 resolution is to travel every month, so the weekend…

My Favorite Travel Apps

If you’re like me, travel and the possibility of travel is always on your mind. I think about upcoming trips, my ultimate dream vacations, hotels I would love to stay in, what food I can get in other cities and sometimes I even look up airline tickets in my free time. I am OBSESSED. But…

Sweet 16 in NYC

I’ve been feeling really inspired lately and I’m not really sure where it’s coming from but I hope it stays. One of the things that’s been on my mind is how I’ve traveled quite extensively, but a lot of it was before this blog came to be. I used to only write about recent trips…

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…
