I love Vancouver! I’d like to compile a list of places and tips for getting around based on my experiences in Canada in case any of you are planning on your own Vancouver adventure!
The first time I ever went to Hawaii, I chose Kauai. Having done my research, I knew I would be absolutely enchanted with the beautiful garden island, and it didn’t disappoint. If you’re thinking about going to Hawaii and you haven’t decided which island you want to visit first, you should know that each one is unique and offers something different. Depending on your personality and what you want to get out of your trip, you’ll want to choose different islands. Personally, Kauai fits me like a glove.
A few months ago, I went on a Southern Arizona road trip. While the purpose of my particular trip was mainly to visit relatives, we did take some time out to have fun and explore, of course, and it got me thinking that I should probably write a blog post on cool things to do in Southern Arizona. I think a lot of the time, Northern Arizona gets all the glory. Home to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, and Antelope Canyon, Northern Arizona is an absolutely amazing place. But if you find yourself in the Southern part of the state, there are some cool things to enjoy there as well. If you find yourself visiting the area or just driving through, check out some of my recommendations and have a great time!
I can assure you that it DOES snow in California (yes, even Southern California), and when it does, we flock to the mountains, strap on our boards or skis, and have a great time! If you’re planning on visiting my fine state this season, you may be wondering just where you can go to get your Winter on. Well, friends…that’s what I’m here for.
I love hiking. The more exciting and adventurous the trail, the more I love it. Since I’ve spent the entirety of my life up to this point living in the American West, I’ve of course explored a lot of trails and researched even more that I would like to do at some point. If you’re going to be in the American West and love hiking, you might want to check out some of these epic hikes.
If you’re visiting Los Angeles, you’re going to have so many things to see and do that your time in town will easily be filled with fun, exciting activities and you’ll never be bored. That being said, this is one hectic city and you might end up needing to take a breather somewhere. You can always head to the beach, where the ocean waves gently lapping on the shore (or crashing and roaring, depending on the tide) will put you in a calm state of mind.
That being said, the beach isn’t the only place to find a little peace and serenity in the City of Angels. I highly suggest you check out some of my favorite places to find a little zen in L.A.
I was inspired to write this post because I saw this question on a travel message board I’m a member of and it brought back a flood of memories from that day in Italy when I decided to visit Pisa. I was on my honeymoon and spending the […]
When it comes to Los Angeles coastal communities, places like Santa Monica and Malibu get all the glory. However, there’s a beautiful community in the South Bay called Rancho Palos Verdes that I think is definitely worth checking out.
I’m almost ashamed to admit that it took me 33 years of living in Southern California to finally get myself to Joshua Tree National Park. On the other hand, it made my recent excursion over there a delightful, fresh experience for this So Cal native who has “done it all” (although apparently not, hahaha).
I recently traveled to Seattle, as you’re probably all aware of. I wanted to recap some of the great things I saw and did while I was there in case any of you are planning your own Seattle adventures. I should preface this post with a note on how things work in Seattle. It’s a pretty big city consisting of neighborhoods. It’s a tough town to drive around and park (but we did it, so it’s not impossible). Public transport is decent but doesn’t go everywhere, so when you’re planning your Seattle adventure you’re going to want to look into the things you want to see and do before you decide whether or not you are going to want to rent a car.
