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
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?!
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
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!
I’ve been slacking on my posts lately, but I have a few coming soon that (I hope) will make up for the lost time. What brought me to Des Moines, you ask? Chris Soules. You know, the next Bachelor? I hear he lives in Iowa and I’m a woman on a mission! But… not really. […]Read More My Midwestern Adventure – Des Moines
As I mentioned in my first post, I’ve moved around a lot. I’m a native Texan and will always be proud of that, but after spending 6 years in Tuscaloosa, Alabama (and with my parents now living in Birmingham) it feels more like home than anywhere else. Being only a short two-ish hour drive from […]Read More Sweet Home Alabama
Baltimore. I always heard it was a filthy, crime-ridden city that seemed to be cold and gray year round. My expectations of this city were quite low before I visited some friends there last weekend so, I was quite impressed when I learned that the fore mentioned statements were mostly false. Of course, there is […]Read More Baltimore, You Are Lovely
I’m a little late with this post, but, I figure, better late than never, right? The first weekend of June, I spent with two of my best friends in the Northeastern part of the country. One of them lives in Philadelphia and the other in Atlanta. Three Southern girls hanging out in Yankee territory usually […]Read More I’m in Delaware! I’m in Delaware?
So, I figured I’d give a little more detail about my overseas adventure. Since the Middle East isn’t well travelled by Americans (espeically Qatar), I thought I’d give a little more insight into my experience while I was there. The Middle East is definitely an interesting place. At times I still felt like I was […]Read More The Chronicles of Doha & Dubai
