As everyone knows, Iceland has experienced a tourism boom since the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in 2010. The Icelandic government worried the country would take a major hit as a result. Instead they responded with a major publicity campaign & in the time since, has jumped from 465,000 tourists in 2009 to an estimated 1.8 million 7 2017 is set to finish around 2.4 million.

Study Abroad is an experience that I believe every college student should have. Whether you spend a week in Honduras teaching English or a year in Italy studying law; it is one of the most rewarding and eye-opening experiences a person could ask for, and, let’s face it, very little studying seems to take place. That is the beauty of it. It isn’t about the papers you write or the tests you… Read More

            Hello travel enthusiasts & fans of me! Early Last spring 2016, a few friends, Whitney A & I took our first trip to Portland. The city & the surrounding environment was amazing. To be in a city setting circled by snow covered mountains in the distance is really a treat.           The trip started with a stop in Umpqua National Forest & a… Read More

Three summers ago my boyfriend invited me to come out and sail on his teams boat: Edge. I had absolutely no exposure to the sailing world in the past, and between trying to squeeze in hang-outs with all of my college friends before the real world hit and working as a production assistant for my brother, I didn’t actually make it out to the boat until the 2015 season. I was hooked… Read More

This past February I broke my South America seal and traveled down to Rio and Buzios for 8 days with my boyfriend and two of our friends. The tiny taste we got of Brazil was fantastic. Below are my do’s and don’ts for traveling to and around the city of Rio De Janeiro. DO: Travel outside the city Rio is a great city full of life, culture, and a plethora of activities,… Read More

We did it again; Eric A, and I pulled off yet another epic road trip. This time we hit Zion National Park. We originally planned on going to the Grand Canyon, but if you look up temperatures in December all you really find are articles about how you will probably die. So we went another route. We started our 175 mile drive around 6:00am on Christmas morning from Henderson, NV-aka Las Vegas’s finest retirement… Read More

True to form, I booked a last minute trip to New York City with my best friend Hanna, otherwise known as “nugget,” for Labor Day weekend. I always find these trips to be the most fun as I don’t have enough time to exercise my excessive over-planning attributes. For this trip we flew in on Saturday morning and departed New York Monday in the late afternoon. For the short amount of time… Read More

So I am finally taking the time to sit down and write my blog post for, what was, an epic and eventful trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. What spurred such a trip was my bro up and deciding to take a job in Baton Rouge about a week before we were moving apartments. Naturally this made for the perfect excuse to plan a last minute Memorial Day weekend trip to see him…. Read More

Well…the holidays have past, the christmas spirit is gone, and the cold weather has kicked it into high gear here in Chicago, but I thought I’d focus on some more positive things; like the fact that I spent Christmas in Vegas. This was by no means my first trip to Vegas, but it was definitely one of the more memorable ones. How does one find themselves in Vegas for Christmas you might… Read More

This past Tuesday Tina, Benni, Loki, and I made the hour drive to this incredible little town on the Moselle known as Cochem. It’s one of those places that lives up to all the pictures on Pinterest and more (queue you searching Cochem on Pinterest). The quaint cobblestone streets and old German houses line the Moselle with the castle like a postcard backdrop. Once we took in the first views of the town… Read More

As I am saying Tchüss to Deutschland a lot sooner than expected, Tina and Benni were kind enough to show me a couple more sights before my departure. Last Thursday we ventured south to visit the lovely Burg Eltz and Pyrmonter Mühle. Burg Eltz is one of those fairy tale castles you dream of as a little kid or, in my case, as an adult searching for the real live Hogwarts. The… Read More

It’s been about two months since Eric and I embarked on our road trip through Kentucky and Tennessee. Below is the route we followed, some highlights of the 6 day trip, and a video summing up the ridiculousness that was “Just Two Bros On A Road Trip. The Highlights: Ziplining, Mammoth Cave Adventures, Mammoth Cave, Kentucky- Couldn’t have asked for a better first time ziplining. Our zip guides were absolutely hilarious and extremely… Read More

I spent only three days in Scotland, but that was all it took to become my favorite place on earth. Here are my top ten photos from the trip:

I started my travel adventures, as many people do, during a study abroad program in college. My program took place in London where I had the opportunity to intern in Oxford Circus (sounds cooler than it was), and take a class with forty other students from my university. This program was absolutely awesome, but it lacked in the “getting out there” department. When you travel with students from your university, teacher included,… Read More

This past Sunday I had the privilege of joining Oma, Opa, and some friends on one of their weekly hiking trips. Oma had stopped by earlier in the week to invite me and prefaced it with something along the lines of “this is a pretty tough hike, we don’t go far in distance, but it’s very steep and dangerous.” I sort of nodded her off and said of course, I would love to… Read More

Well, after a month in my lovely new home, Ramersbach, I felt it was time to share with everyone what this place is all about. I arrived at the Frankfurt airport at two o’clock in the afternoon and was greeted by my host mother, Nina. The drive from Frankfurt to Ramersbach was mostly anti-climactic, filled with questions about Germany and some not- so-exciting scenery. A highway is a highway no matter what… Read More
