Happy Thanksgiving image

There is so much to be grateful for. Thanksgiving is the best time to remember, thank and appreciate the many blessings that life brings you. It has been an interesting year full of countless moments (good & bad) that made me feel alive + grateful for each day. Life is a gift, get out there and live it! In January there will be a travel highlights + year reflection post with much more. What is one thing you are grateful for this year? Wishing you and your loved ones safe travels and a very Happy Thanksgiving! Today’s tidbit: “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” — Melody Beattie

Friends Who Travel Together image

When it comes to traveling, there are lots of different options on where to go + WHO to go with. Do you venture out solo, go with family, book a tour and/or explore with a friend? Up until this year I had always gone solo or with family. In June that changed when Holly (a friend + roommate) and I decided to stop talking about Europe and make the trip a reality. As the Thanksgiving week starts, it’s a good time to think about everything you are grateful for. Exploring near or far, from Washington, D.C. to Europe, one of the many things I’m grateful for is having a true friend + travel partner like Holly and the many travel adventures this ...

Super Blood Moon image

Last night, September 27th, the Sun + Earth + Moon lined up in a row to put on a magical show. People all over the world looked up to watch the lunar eclipse. Super Moon + Blood Moon + Lunar Eclipse Why was it special? It was a special one for at least two reasons. First, it was a super moon + blood moon.

Second, this lunar eclipse was the last in a series of four in two years. It can happen a couple ...

September Reflecting image

9.11 First off… as this beautiful day begins, today is different. It marks the 14th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in the USA. I remember this day 14 years ago well, sitting in english class in middle school. There was a somber feel and erie silence that spread around the building. The evening was spent watching the horrible footage and updates from the day. So many powerful and heartbreaking images. My thoughts are with the families and friends of those who died, as well as with the many survivors, volunteers and first responders. Remember You never know what each new day has in store. People aboard the flights had bags packed they would not live to open. People left for work thinking ...

I’m moving! A new adventure awaits image

Goodbye Washington, DC. Hello Colorado. It’s my birthday month and I’ve got some exciting news to share! Back in January I made a promise to myself that 2015 would be the year to leave everything and travel. To take advantage of any opportunity to discover this beautiful planet. I certainly have traveled, exploring more countries + states in the USA this year than ever before. It has been absolutely incredible and I don’t plan on stopping. With that said, I’ve been seeking a big change since I went to Western Australia (WA) last June. While WA is still where my heart is (priority to move there in 2016) I am trying to plan less and seize new opportunities as they ...
