Visiting 3 Countries in 1 Day

While I try to keep my itinerary open for spontaneous adventures, I usually end up booking a few day trips in advance. However, when exploring top day tours in Barcelona, I could not resist booking this day trip listed on Viator: visiting three countries in one day. A full-day adventure, this tour visits a medieval…

Highlights of Barcelona

Cheap flights from the US to Barcelona were quite prevalent in 2018, which sparked a spontaneous decision to book a week in this beautiful city! With stunning architecture and rich history, I can see why Barcelona is a popular destination among tourists. Here are the highlights of my week in the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s…

Things To Do In (and Near) Playa del Carmen

A Year in Review: My Top 10 Adventures of 2018

    I feel like I say this every year, but I can’t believe another year has come and gone! 2018 had been my biggest year for traveling yet. While I typically only embark on one international adventure a year, I was fortunate enough to both have the opportunity of taking time off and affordability…

Highlights from Nicaragua

For those of you who may not know, I was very fortunate enough to participate in a couple undergraduate service trips abroad to Nicaragua in 2012 and 2013. Approximately a few weeks ago now, I found out that the organization is reuniting alumni to participate in a reunion service trip in May 2017! I can’t…

From the Ring Road With Love: A Road Trip Through Iceland

Well it’s been a while since I’ve been on an overseas trip (14 months, but who’s counting?), but I’m happy to announce that I made my travel plans come true for this year and recently embarked on my road trip throughout the land of fire and ice! Iceland has definitely become a more popular travel…
