Joshua Tree Travel Guide

After our day of drinking and architecture in Palm Springs, we hit the road and headed to Joshua Tree National Park. Driving from Palm Springs to Joshua Tree is when you notice that you’re actually in a desert. The roads stretch endlessly with few outposts along the way. We entered through the south gate ofContinue reading “Joshua Tree Travel Guide”

Palm Springs Travel Guide

After our days in Disneyland, we woke up early and headed straight for Palm Springs. It’s really easy to forget that you’re heading into a desert until you see the temperature slowly increasing on your phone as your drive. By the time we reached Palm Springs we were squarely into the 100s and surrounded byContinue reading “Palm Springs Travel Guide”

Disneyland Travel Guide

The last time I went to Disneyland I was 4 years old. Needless to say, I remember none of it. Thankfully, I’m an adult now and can live out any childhood fantasies I have! Going to Disneyland as an adult is way better than going as a kid. You can ride all the rides. YouContinue reading “Disneyland Travel Guide”

Los Angeles Travel Guide

Follow my blog with Bloglovin When you have very little vacation time, you have to pack your trips to the point where the vacation itself feels like work.

Minneapolis Travel Guide

Last month, my roommate Megan and I headed to Minneapolis under the pretense of going to the Minnesota State Fair. Or maybe it was to escape the unforgiving humidity and heat of DC for the milder temperatures of the Midwest. Or it was our enthusiasm for mid-sized Midwest cities. I’ll let you be the judge.Continue reading “Minneapolis Travel Guide”

New Orleans Travel Guide

Sometimes it seems like suddenly everyone is taking a trip to the same place (Looking at you, Iceland circa 2017). This year, New Orleans has appeared on multiple “best places to go” lists and hosted so many conferences I would be surprised if you told me your professional conference was held anywhere else. This is dueContinue reading “New Orleans Travel Guide”

Windsor, London, and The Royal Wedding

When it was first announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would marry in Windsor, my best friend Anna had an idea: we were going to go to Windsor for the Royal Wedding. At first, I thought she might be joking. But she was quite serious about her proposal. Anna partly grew up in Windsor.Continue reading “Windsor, London, and The Royal Wedding”

Kansas City Travel Guide

When I told people I was going to Kansas City, the most common response was “Oh…um… do you have family there?” No, I do not. But I do love BBQ, and isn’t that enough of a reason to take a trip somewhere? As a Midwesterner, Kansas City reminded me of what I miss about livingContinue reading “Kansas City Travel Guide”

Seattle Travel Guide

A few months ago, a friend and I decided we wanted to take a trip to Scotland in December. We started to come up with an itinerary and look for the best flight options. We found an ice cream shop we wanted to visit in Edinburgh—we were committed. But soon enough, we realized that internationalContinue reading “Seattle Travel Guide”

Atlanta Travel Guide

I don’t go to the South. Or at least that’s what I make a point of telling people. I’ve only gone to Florida and Texas before, and have been informed that those do not “count” as the South. But when my friend asked if anyone would join her on her non-refundable* trip to Atlanta, IContinue reading “Atlanta Travel Guide”
