Things To Do In (and Near) Playa del Carmen

Of course I have to say, four days in a foreign place is not usually enough time to explore it at its full potential (or for me, hit up half of the things off my bucket list!). However, for us part-time travelers with limited vacation time, sometimes you have to make the most of a…

My 2019 Travel Plans and Wish List

It’s that time of year again! A new year means time to start daydreaming about new (and old!) destinations to explore and making those dreams a reality. Here are the top places I’m hoping to make a reality for 2019: Bermuda So far, Bermuda is my only “official” travel plan of 2019. My (new) husband,…

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…

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…

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. With all the chaos of trying to find an internship to graduate on time, balancing…

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…

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…

My 2016 Travel List

I cannot believe that 2016 is here to stay! With an entire new year ahead, it’s time to start planning some destinations to visit throughout 2016! Unfortunately, due to academic commitments (I’ll be finishing my last year of graduate level courses this year), I will not be able to travel abroad as much as I…
