A Day At Waiheke Island, New Zealand

My multi-flight route to Oceania was the longest amount of time I have ever spent on a plane. Coming from New England, the fastest route to arriving in Auckland, New Zealand is about 18 hours (it takes about 6 hours just to get to the west coast of the US!).  I arrived in Auckland at…

Picture Vs Reality: Behind the “Picture Perfect” Travel Photo

With modern technology, there is not much left of the world that has not been discovered. Which can be both a blessing and a curse. I mean, who wouldn’t want to cross off iconic structures, such as the Eiffel Tower, The Great Wall of China, and Machu Picchu off their bucket list? Since 2012 when…

My 2018 Travel Plans and Wish List

I can’t believe we’re already two months into 2018. I have already started planning my major yearly trip as well as have a few smaller trips in mind for some mini vacations and long weekend getaways. I was fortunate enough to have traveled more often than ever in 2017, so I’m hoping to continue to…

A Year in Review: My Top 10 Adventures of 2017

This year had been the year for some major life changes for me outside of travel. I completed my final year of graduate school, my college boyfriend of five years proposed to me, and we bought our first home together.

Back from hiatus (and future travel plans)!

Greetings fellow readers! It’s been way too long since my last blog post (four months to be precise), something I am not proud of! While I haven’t done nearly enough blogging as I would like to since starting the blog, going MIA for this long is just not acceptable! Unfortunately, my last two semesters of…

72 Hours in Quebec City

As a way to say audios to a crazy 2016 and ring in the new year, my significant other and I decided to book a long weekend in Quebec City. Having a taste of Canada with our long weekend adventure in Montreal last year, Quebec City as a lure of old world charm that we…

My 2017 Travel Wish List

As 2016 comes to an end, now is the time to start re-vamping the bucket list and plan for some new countries to explore in the upcoming new year. While I did not travel as much this year as I would have liked, I was very fortunate to visit Iceland and Montreal for the first…

How To Handle Travel Withdrawals While Off The Road

Unlike most travel bloggers, I don’t travel full-time for a living. If I’m lucky, I’m able to plan a few trips a year. While I try to add local and spontaneous excursions to “fill the void”, it can be a challenge to get through my “normal” life when I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and unsure of…

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…
