Feature Friday: Meet Victoria M.

Happy Friday! I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during these turbulent times. I thought this would be the perfect time to bring back Feature Friday. In case you don’t know, Feature Friday is usually an interview segment where we get to know a little more and behind the scenes of a traveller, travel blogger, or in this case – a pilot! How cool is that? I met Victoria years ago through competitive swimming. We swam on the same club team and the same high school team. Now, Victoria is a certified pilot and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share her journey with you!

Accessibility at Disney World

Disclaimer: I am an able-bodied individual speaking on accessibility at Disney World.

It never even crossed my mind that I would be able to say I’ve been to Disney World more times than I can count! Okay, I haven’t been that much, but more than the once in a lifetime I was expecting. If interested, check out my previous Disney posts here, here, and here! The cool thing about returning to Disney is that each time I go, I learn something new! This time around, my friend Courtney shared with me about the accessibility at Disney World, and now I’d like to share it with you!

Year in Review: 2019 Year Highlights

2019 is coming to an end, and we’re about to enter into a new decade! Before heading into the new year, I decided to look back on this past year and see my 2019 highlights. Come check it out!

Every year I say the same thing: how crazy is it that the year is ending and the new one is beginning?! Although sometimes it feels like the days go by slowly, the years go by in a blink of an eye! This year I kicked off 2019 in a completely different country, and I travelled to several new countries. I spent time with some of my favorite people, and also made new friendships along the way. I tried new things and learned new things. This year has been filled with laughter and tears; joy and frustration; healing and pain. Despite it all, I have so much to be grateful and thankful for during this past year. Let’s take a look back at the 2019 year highlights:
