Traveling


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...

Known as the “Birthplace of Minnesota” and having been named one of the prettiest little towns in America, I had a feeling I would be instantly charmed by Stillwater. Upon arriving, I was greeted with rolling hills (yes, in the midwest!) and inviting small streets woven throughout the...

This post was originally published on IHG’s blog. The Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, One World Trade Center…all of offer exceptional views of NYC, but only with some major trade-offs. You could wait hours in line just to reach the top, and the cost of admission is as sky-high as the observation deck. Plus, you’ll find the same exact views in every tour guide...

There is no doubt that Croatia is a beautiful destination, packed with an interesting history and culture waiting to be explored. Luckily, it’s not too difficult to pack light for a trip to Croatia. I managed to pack for a month of backpacking through Croatia in my trusty 48L REI carry-on backpack. I made a lot of stops during the journey through Croatia but a...

You may have heard of the popular Plitvice Lakes National Park in central Croatia, but if you are visiting the Dalmatia region along the coast it can be quite the lengthy day trip to get there. The alternative? Visit Krka National Park, Croatia’s lesser known but no less beautiful gem of a park. It’s an easy day trip from Split, only about an hour drive away...
