Why I Love To Travel Alone

When I first proposed the idea of traveling alone to my Mom – she thought I was absolutely insane.  “Traveling alone?!” she said, “but what will you do by yourself?”

I feel as though many of you had similar reactions when watching my stories & posts last weekend when I told you that I was planning a road trip by myself to Santa Fe.

Things You Must Do in Nashville ASAP

Anthony & I took a trip to Nashville this weekend. Since I’m living out in Colorado for work and he’s down in Misssissippi, we agreed that Tennessee is a great “meet-in-the-middle” location. (Lol I can’t say meet me in the middle these days without instantly breaking out in song, thank you Zedd & Maren Morris.) Anyways, this weekend was our third time in Nashville together and each time it’s better than the last.  My previous Nashville must-do list still holds true, (you can read it here) but I can’t resist sharing with you some more of my recommendations!

Charleston Charm

I must say I’ve been wanting to visit Charleston for quite some time now. After I got back from studying abroad in Spain my junior year of college, I started frantically researching cities in the US that are considered most similar to European cities. I knew it’d be unrealistic to make weekend trips to Europe, so I wanted to see where I could go in the US to still experience a city filled with history and quaint cobblestone streets.  In my research – there were 3 cities described as having a European-feel (one not quite in the US, but close enough) – they were Montreal, Boston and Charleston!  I now can say that so far I have gotten to 2 out of the 3.  I visited Montreal the summer after I got home from studying abroad (it’s a must!!) and this weekend I finally made my trip to Charleston happen… and I will say, I’ll definitely be back because just one weekend wasn’t enough.  Here I will share with you where to stay, what to see & do, and what & where to eat in Charleston.

48 Hours in Atlanta

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I met up in Atlanta for a weekend getaway.  The trip was very spontaneous, so without much time to plan, we relied on my blogger friends to tell us the best places to go - thank you to everyone for their suggestions!

Flashback to Nashville

Shortly after our college graduation last year, my boyfriend and I took a road trip down to Nashville.  As a huge fan of country music and southern comfort food, this was like a dream come true.  Below I will share with you some of the highlights from our trip – we did so much in the 5 days we were there that it is hard to choose my favorites, but I’ll try my best.

New York Trip in a Nutshell

This past weekend, my family and I ventured up to NYC for a fun, touristy Easter weekend.  I clearly have been living under a rock for the past 23 years, because I had no idea that Brooklyn is only a 2-hour drive from Philly.   After our amazing weekend wandering around the city (my iPhone told me I took 40,000 steps!) – I can’t wait to plan my next trip!  I finally understand the craze of loving New York City!
