As I get ready to embark on another adventure, it feels like an appropriate time to reflect some past travels. Also, since I haven’t posted in a while, I have a lot to talk about… Last year I traveled to Asia for the first time (Yay! A new continent!). And, I have to admit, I […]Read More I heart Thailand
Ever since my first trip overseas 2 years ago, I can’t get enough International travel into my schedule. I’m constantly trying to work around holidays and any other way I can manipulate my vacation time to get out of the country as much as possible. It also helps when you know people overseas who can help […]Read More Zdrasti, Bulgaria!
Unfortunately, it’s been a while since my last post, but this only means there’s more adventures coming soon! Anyway… I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Minneapolis is pretty cool, y’all. So, I’m on this mission to visit all 50 states. Unfortunately, I was only 25 states into this adventure at this point, but on […]Read More Minneapolis — Dontcha Know?!
Our last couple days in Cape Town were pretty lazy, for the most part. We decided instead of trying to cram in a safari, or doing some other activity that would be an all day event, to take some time and enjoy the city. That Friday, we went to lunch at Gouremet Boerie where we […]Read More The Final Days
Day 6 consisted mostly of hiking and being outdoors all day. It was my brother’s 30th birthday, and he decided that he wanted to hike Lion’s Head that morning. We also figured it was the best day to check out Table Mountain. That morning, we started our hike around 9 am. The weather was […]Read More The Great Outdoors
I’m not quite sure I can say that I have a favorite day from the 8 that we were in Cape Town, but these two were pretty good ones. Day 4: We decided to take a day to just relax and spend sometime close to our Airbnb apartment. My one request for the trip was […]Read More Beach and Vino – Days 4 & 5
Apparently, I got a little too excited about my penguin and baboon adventure that I completely left out the first two days of the trip! Not nearly as exciting, but here you go… We made it to Cape Town around noon on a Saturday. I could barely contain my excitement to be in such a […]Read More Cape Town: The First Days
Day 3 of our Cape Town family vacation was probably the most eventful of the whole adventure. Because Jordan and I enjoyed the drive so much that we did the day before, we wanted to do it again and show our parents everything we saw. Luckily, it was on our way to Boulders Beach which […]Read More Lions and Baboons and Penguins, Oh My!
Well, it’s definitely time for a new post! Long overdue… And this series, I think, is well worth the wait. A few months ago, I get a WhatsApp message from my brother asking, “Hey, would you want to go to Cape Town in February?”, and of course my response was, “YES!!!”. It never really crossed […]Read More The Journey to Cape Town
I’ve realized that Chicago has to have one bad quality or else everyone would want to live there — brutally cold weather. Fortunately, the weather was just about perfect while I was there a couple weeks ago. Sunny and 75 (I think that’s a song?). My friend Kat and I decided to drive to Chicago […]Read More My Midwestern Adventure – Part 2 – Chicago!
