What Do You Like Taking Pictures Of?

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about what I’d like my first destination in South America to be due to the fact that I am a swimmer. Well, I think swimming continues to infiltrate in other areas of my life – more than I thought – because when I look at most of my pictures, they are dominated by one common factor; water.

An Open Letter To My Perfect Travel Partner{s}

When you travel with people, you’ll find some people are better at travelling with you than others.

It’s fun to travel in groups, and it’s fun to travel solo. For me, I find it best to travel with one-two people, as long as I’m travelling with the right person{s}. Travelling with another person is such a tricky business. It can literally make or break relationships of any kind. Just because we may be best friends, doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be my perfect travel partner. The perfect travel partner is found through trial and error, and when you finally get it right, it’s truly an amazing experience! Continue reading “An Open Letter To My Perfect Travel Partner{s}”

Here are five places in the south east United States that you may or may not have heard of before. In my opinion they are worth paying a visit!

I’ve been in the Southeast part of the U.S. for basically as long as I can remember. I’ve lived in Georgia. I went to school in North Carolina. I’ve visited Florida with my friends.

Basically the big well-known cities; The cities that offer theme parks, attractions, and sights. But what about the great places that aren’t as well-known? The smaller{er} places with places with personalities just as big as the larger cities? Ready to learn where to find some gems in the southeast? Let’s go!

A Guide to Finding the Right Airbnb For You

Airbnb is a great way to find accommodations for your next trip. Instead of staying in a hotel, try visiting a home away from home. This guide will give you the tools to figure out which place is right for you!

So many details go into planning the perfect trip. Your mode of transportation, your budget, your activities, your meals, and so much more. And let us not forget lodging. Depending on the location, most times people go for hotels. They’re easy, they’re what we know, and they have reviews. But you know what else we can look into for our next lodging needs? Airbnb. 

Airbnb is a community built on the foundation of trust. A person, a family, or even a business rents out either a shared space, a private room, or an entire place to a complete stranger. You can find anything from the typical apartment or house, to more interesting places like mansions, boathouses, castles, or even tree houses and igloos. Airbnb is available all around the world, and a perfect place is waiting for you at your next destination. You just have to be willing to find it! Continue reading “A Guide to Finding the Right Airbnb For You”

Exploring Hawaii

My trip to Hawaii was incredible. Come find out how we spent our time in the beautiful island!

Hawaii is made up of several islands, and if you’ve been keeping up with my posts, you’ll know that my sister, Brit, and I visited the island of Oahu. Continue reading “Exploring Hawaii”

Feature Friday: Meet Alice R.

Being a student is hard. Being an international student is harder. Come learn about Alice’s college journey in the U.S.

When I went off to college, I didn’t realize how long it would take to adjust. Thinking about now, I know I wasn’t that far from home; however, at the time a 6.5 hour drive home seemed forever away. Freshmen year I watched most of my peers go home at least every other weekend. It was heartbreaking that I didn’t have the option to do the same. As time passed, each semester got easier being away from home and I started making more friends who also didn’t have opportunities to go home often. I befriended many international students, and as I began to learn their stories, I realized I was very luck in my college experience. I thought about if I would ever consider going to a different country for my undergraduate career and my thoughts led me to this conclusion: International students don’t get enough credit. Not only do they have to {potentially} start conversing in a different language, they are thousands of miles away from their families and their homes. Alice is one who had to endure those extra trials and tribulations, as well as being a student-athlete. Let’s find out what she has to say about travelling from Sweden to go to school in the United States! Continue reading “Feature Friday: Meet Alice R.”
