From the Diary: St. Andrews, Scotland

June 20, 2012     5:00 pm     Stirling, Scotland I think everyone in my flat has gone to sleep. It's rather comical that we all were able to go about three days without completely passing out. I slept from about 1:30 pm - 4. Great nap.  The past three days have actually been [...]

Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon

Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon

Everyone knows of the giant hole in the middle of north Arizona: the Grand Canyon. Few people know of the Little Grand Canyon located in Georgia! Last month, Boy Friend and I took a drive south of Columbus to Providence Canyon and explored for the day. Providence Canyon was created due to poor agricultural practices Georgia. [...]

What I Took to Egypt

What I Took to Egypt

And What I Actually Used... Packing clothes for a lengthy trip is one thing. I've already covered that in one of my posts, but packing the odds and ends isn't a piece of cake either. There's a lot of decision making when it comes to packing the stuff you take on a trip. You have [...]

Getting Sick in Prague

Getting Sick in Prague

No one wants to be sick away from the safety of our own bed. I've been sick SO many times out on the road. It's comical at this point that almost every trip I go on, I get sick. It happened on the road trip in Ireland. It happened in Arizona. And it's happened countless other [...]

From the Diary: West Coast Road Trip

Summer 2013, my family took a four day road trip from Seattle, Washington to San Francisco, California. It was a group of 10 of us: me, mom, dad, sister, aunt, uncle, two of their kids, and my grand parents. These are the stories from that trip taken straight from my diary. June 15, 2013 - Washington [...]

Products That Will Help You Travel Like A Pro

Products That Will Help You Travel Like A Pro

Like many avid travelers, I too am a traveling fanatic. Although I travel a lot to different places, I always try to travel like a pro. Believe me, traveling in itself is fun, but traveling like a pro is like taking the aspect of fun to a whole new level. It is always assumed (and, rightfully so) that [...]

Flying Jacob – Sweden’s Bacon/Banana Dish

Flying Jacob – Sweden’s Bacon/Banana Dish

I visited Sweden in January 2014, and I've wanted to go back ever since. One of the best parts of that trip was the food. I imagine the long, dark winters allow the Swedes ample time to create a wide assortment of tasty foods. The most interesting of the foods was the traditional dish Flying [...]

Nightmare Situation: Bed Bugs

Nightmare Situation: Bed Bugs

No one likes to stay in a place that doesn't feel like home. Add bed bugs to that and the situation goes from unlikable to nightmarish. Last Saturday night, my sister and I drove down to Panama City, Florida for a two night vacation on the beach. We looked forward to a weekend away from the [...]

Civil War Re-Enactments

Civil War Re-Enactments

In the South we have this wonderful tendency to reproduce battles from the Civil War. We always show them as the event actually took place, but we strive to beat those Yankees each time. Last month, my sister and I ventured into the Old South. She and I traveled to Clinton, GA to explore life [...]

From the Diary: Scotland

From the Diary: Scotland

I've recently gone through my diary (the written, gut wrenching, shaming diary) that I've kept over the last five years. I take it on pretty much every big trip I go on and detail some of the events. While I was in Scotland studying abroad in 2012, I had the diary with me. Stories of [...]
