Traveling


The morning heat settled instantly on my skin upon stepping off my Turkish Airlines flight into Nepal. I breezed through the visa process since I was towards the front of the line, and quickly found my ride outside. Once the rest of our group arrived and we made the short drive to central Kathmandu, the van was surrounded with a whir of activity. Store owners setting up...

A summertime girl’s getaway to Mackinac Island proved to be the perfect quiet retreat to slow down and disconnect while enjoying a more simple nineteenth-century way of living without cars. After the first automobile drove the roads of Mackinac Island, it didn’t take long for automobiles (or, “horseless carriages” as the locals called them) to be banned completely on the island in 1898. Make the most of...

With a rating as prestigious as number one in Utah by Zagat, The Mariposa at Deer Valley Resort is a winning selection for dining in Park City. Upon entering, the warm fire instantly thawed the bitter cold I left behind on the other side of the door. We were quickly shown to our table in an intimate room with only a few other tables, alongside another crackling...

Park City, Utah is made up of a mere 8,128 residents (as of 2015), yet it is also home to the largest ski resort in the United States. Park City even hosted nearly half of the events in the 2002 Winter Olympic Games! I was quickly enamored with this small, colorful town that brought in visitors from all over the world. The snowcapped peaks grew larger as our plane...

There are very few brands I truly show loyalty toward. Southwest Airlines is one of those few exceptions. If I have a choice, I will always choose to fly Southwest. After flying 21,271 miles with Southwest in 2016 alone, I think it’s safe to say I’ve had my fair share of time spent with them recently! There are many reasons why I love Southwest Airlines, but...

New Orleans is famous for its food, art, and culture. Among that mix is the architecture and history of some of the oldest buildings in the city. The beautiful French style was overpowered by Spanish iron works, which now adorn much of the French Quarter. Some of these buildings are restaurants, bars, and even hotels. Below are 5 historic hotels in New Orleans, and some...

When the spring snows melt and ski season comes to an end, it makes way for the beautiful warm summer and fall months in colorful Colorado. The open road winding through the towering Rocky Mountains awaits, as the perfect southwestern Colorado road trip beckons. As much as I love Boulder and the greater Denver area, the rest of Colorado is just too wonderful to overlook. The...

Travel is not always a smooth journey with pretty photos and perfect weather. Sometimes things go wrong when traveling. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to avoid at least some sort of travel blunder, whether it’s as minor as plans going wrong or as detrimental as being in the midst of violent situations. Yet, there is always a lesson to be learned and sometimes there is even...

It’s hard to resist the orange rooftops reflected in the crystal clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea along the Croatian coast. Last summer, I had the pleasure of visiting Croatia after my trip to Sweden and I fell head over heels for the country. My sister and I flew into Croatia from Stockholm and met the rest of our family for the start of our multigenerational trip...
