Why You Should Travel Solo (At Least Once)

Not all of us are fortunate enough to have a perfect travel partner — maybe you haven’t found someone you get along with enough to spend extended time in a car together or you haven’t been able to line your schedules up. But just because you don’t have a travel partner, doesn’t mean you can’t…

How to Find Cheap Plane Tickets

Travel can be expensive. The cost of traveling is probably the reason I’ve heard most often why people don’t travel (along with not having the time, but that’s another discussion). But traveling doesn’t have to be expensive. Sure, if you want a certain standard of travel and luxury, then budget traveling might not be as…

Lake Bled, Slovenia [PHOTO BLOG]

On my recent trip to Slovenia, I spent some time in Ljubljana but also managed to make my way to enjoy the beautiful country side! In everything I was reading online about Slovenia, Lake Bled seemed to be one of the top places to go. It’s only an hour from Ljubljana so we decided to…

Ljubljana, Slovenia [PHOTO BLOG]

One of the countries never on my bucket list was Slovenia. In fact, the whole trip, I kept calling it Slovakia 🙈. BUT it was an interesting little country to explore for the weekend! Joe had been there before, and it was an easy 2 hour drive from Aviano. We stayed in Ljubljana (pronounced like…

Venice, Italy [PHOTO BLOG]

After about 3 weeks of living in Italy (an hour from Venice, mind you), I finally visited Venice! It was such a magical city! I didn’t get to check everything off my Venice bucket list (yes, I do have an actual list). Instead, we spent most of the day just wandering around. It just gives…

Galicia, Spain [PHOTO BLOG]

Although Spain wasn’t necessarily high on my list of places to visit — since I was there when I studied abroad — my former coworker (who is from Spain!) happened to be in Europe just as I was arriving. So my fiancé and I took a long weekend over the 4th of July to visit…

Portland, Oregon [Photo Blog]

Despite all the traveling that I’ve done, I had never been to the west coast (shame on me, I know). So naturally when my travel partner had a wedding out near Portland, Oregon and asked me if I wanted to go, I was onboard! Apparently we brought our east coast weather with us (yay for…

Green Ribbon Trail

Words don’t really mean much until you act on them. If you’re like me, you’ve probably said hundreds of things you want to do, but only actually do a handful of them at most (I need more hands than I have to count the New Year’s resolutions I’ve made and not kept…). A few years…

9 Reasons You Should Take A Road Trip (Right Now)

When people tell me they want to travel — but don’t have the time or money — what I really hear is that travel isn’t a priority for them. And that’s totally okay! No judgement here. Travel isn’t for everyone, and, even if it is, we all go through seasons where other things will take…

Acadia National Park, Maine [PHOTO BLOG]

My perfect way to end the summer is with a road trip! Seriously, I can just get into my car and drive a few hours to get out of my hometown, see amazing sights, and visit friends who live in other parts of the country — how great is that?! Since camping has been on…
