Who Inspired Me to Become a Tour Director?

I was inspired to travel by my family. I remember riding in the car along the winding mountainside in Southern California with Papa (my granddad) simultaneously driving and pointing down a deep ravine scaring the bejesus out of us. I can feel the long-healed bumps and bruises earned from a terrible experience of us ice [...]

Coming to Ya Live from Ireland

Coming to Ya Live from Ireland

I don't even know where to begin. It's strange being here.  I'm torn between feeling perfectly normal and horribly out of place. The range of emotions I've felt has gone from crying for joy to frustration to disgust to loneliness to content.  Here's how. I landed yesterday morning at 8.15am.  Getting off the plane and [...]

New England Road Trip: Day 2

New England Road Trip: Day 2

Picking up where we left off on the New England Road Trip. We planned day two to be a bit more relaxed than day one.  There wasn't as heavy a rush to leave first thing in the morning due to a long drive.  We set off around 9.00am towards Plymouth. Now we didn't really know [...]

From the Diary: Isle of Skye, Scotland

Back to typing up old diary entries from previous travels! Current 2017 thoughts on my super sassy, over exaggerated self from 2012 will be in bold and purple. July 3, 2012 I have gotten into a bad habit of getting distracted and leaving my journals unfinished.  Also, I have finally gotten tape to put everything [...]

Hot Air Balloon Rides in Egypt

Hot Air Balloon Rides in Egypt

I was looking through pictures from my trip to Egypt the other day, and I was reminded of the shear beauty of the River Nile from the sky.  The $140 I forked out for a 4.00am wake up and hot air balloon ride was more than worth it! I saw the sun rise directly over [...]

Day Trip: Chattanooga

Day Trip: Chattanooga

Last month, my dad and I took a day trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Looking back on it, we should not have decided to go on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, but hindsight is always 20/20.  We live about 2.5 hours south of Chattanooga, so we set out around 11.00am thinking that we would be [...]
