A Day in Dublin: A Walk Through Ireland’s Capital City

A Day in Dublin: A Walk Through Ireland’s Capital City

A Day in Dublin is hardly enough time. We only spent two insanely short days in Ireland, before whisking off to England, but it wasn’t before we attempted to absorb as much as we could during our small time in this lovely country. While Dublin is the largest city in Ireland and more than 1,000 years old, most of its highlights are located within the city center, so geography is definitely on your side when you only have a limited…

My Worst Travel Experience of 2016: Getting on a Plane with No Money

My Worst Travel Experience of 2016: Getting on a Plane with No Money

I’m one of those annoying people that eats, sleeps, and breathes travel. Seriously, it’s really hard to talk me out of anything travel related whether it’s TV shows that bore others to tears, purchasing some new-fangled gadget, or eating some weird food that I absolutely knew better than to put in my mouth but I just had to try it. I’m obsessed! But travel isn’t all sunshine and roses. Sometimes, it can get downright ugly. You lose your baggage, miss…

What I’m Reading: Best Travel Blogs for March 2017

It’s March and you know what that means! No, I’m not talking about shamrock parades and pints of Guinness. Although that sounds like a fun day! It’s National Women’s History Month. So, for this month’s “What I’m Reading”, in honor of the incredible women who pioneered and paved the way for us to live this amazing life we have, I want to highlight some fabulous, female travel bloggers who inspire me on a daily basis. These women are from all…

From Listicles to Storytelling: The Wrong Way to Start a Blog

From Listicles to Storytelling: The Wrong Way to Start a Blog

Hey Explorers, Remember me? I’m that girl that started a travel blog a month ago and fell off the edge of the earth for two weeks. Yea, that’s me. Hi, How ya doin’? I have been MIA due to a few different things these past few weeks. We’ve been dealing with sickness and a parent’s hospitalization among other things. Don’t worry, everyone is now on the mend, but there is something else that I really want to share with you….

Man Flu to Malaria: Avoiding Sickness while Traveling

Man Flu to Malaria: Avoiding Sickness while Traveling

I’m a little late on posting this blog today because the flu has reared its ugly head in my house. So far, I’m hunkered down in the fort with my weapons of Lysol and Purell. There have been casualties, though. Chris has been hit hard, and for the past five days, so you could just call me Florence Nightingale. Yep, he’s got the man flu. Him being under the weather got me to thinking, though. Remember that time you had…

What I’m Reading: Best Travel Blogs for February

A writer that does not read is like a mechanic that does not drive. The two really go hand in hand. Even Stephen King said, “If you want to be a writer you must do two things above all else: read a lot and write a lot.” Now I’m not really into horror, but with his track record, the man knows his stuff. I began reading travel blogs off and on a while back, but I never really committed to…

Accessible Travel Tips. What to Know Before You Go

Accessible Travel Tips. What to Know Before You Go

1.Plan ahead. I cannot stress this enough. A little planning goes a long way. I hear it almost on a daily basis, “I would love to go to Germany, but I can’t walk on those cobblestones like the young people do.” “Maybe I’ll go when my kids are older- you just can’t take a baby to Europe.” “Those castles aren’t wheelchair accessible.” Well maybe you don’t feel able to climb to the battlements in Blarney to kiss that slutty stone,…

An Accessible Day in Bath

An Accessible Day in Bath

During my first trip to England, I only had four full days to cram in as much as I possibly could of this amazing magical country. I know what you’re thinking, “Wow, that is not nearly enough time.” Well, no it isn’t, which is why a return trip is already in the works (wink wink). I don’t think any amount of time would ever be enough, but that is the beauty of travel. You can always return to the places…

2017 Let’s do this! Travel More, Blog More, Live More.

Hey, Explorers. 2017 has got to be better than 2016 right? Well, I have to be one of those people. 2016 was a pretty dang good year for me. I became an aunt to a gorgeous little girl. I visited two amazing new countries. I settled in a new job and celebrated one year with my husband. And guess what?! I also began the creative process to bring you this blog. Wouldn’t you say that’s a pretty awesome year? Yea,…
