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

Hey everyone! Whitney A & I are back with another late bloomer. If we haven’t discussed it before, Whit & I have a tradition of skipping family Christmas & heading out to a different national park each year. This past Christmas we hit up Big Bend National Park in Texas. Amazing mountain filled landscapes, starry skies, & nights so quiet you can hear the sound of murder. To start off the trip, Whit and I flew in… 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

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

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

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 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
