Where to next?
From Coast to Coast… and Everywhere in Between!
I love going to far flung places as much as the next girl, but when c***d forced me into traveling closer to home, I pulled out my paper maps and started plotting routes to here and there. And really, there is so much to see right here close(ish) to home!
So these days, you’ll mostly find me traveling around the US, working through my “I’ve always wanted to go there” list that was ignored for so long.
Seeing the hydrangeas on Nantucket? As pretty as I imagined. Plus…the CHOWDER. Hiking through the Hoh Rain Forest in Washington? By far the dreamiest place I’ve ever been. Shopping for turquoise jewelry at the Indian Market in Santa Fe? My favorite way to spend an afternoon.
So whether it’s an epic road trip along Route 66, wine tasting in Napa Valley, or a quick jaunt to Iowa to stay in Frank Lloyd Wright’s only hotel, follow along for some amazing adventures.
Hawaii is how I got my start as a travel blogger. After moving to Maui for a little hiatus after school and playing tour guide for my steady stream of visitors, I started writing it all down. One move back to the mainland and DOZENS of trips back to the islands later and I think I’ve put together a little gold mine of Hawaii travel tips.
What You’ll Find Here
Planning + Logistics
Pretty pictures and “inspiration” are great, but I revel in the nitty gritty details. Stringing together an itinerary, finding the perfect place to stay, and knowing the best places to eat nearby is what I love.
You can always count on me for the real scoop. A place might be perfect for somebody but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect for everybody. People love my “this vs that” posts and “is it worth it” comparisons.
My Personal Style
This isn’t an anonymous site that will leave you questioning if the writer is even human ; ) My personal travel style is pretty pivotal to everything I write. Glamping near a National Park? Yes. 15 mile hikes? Not so much.
Where I’ve Been
I’m an Oklahoma based travel blogger on a mission to visit all 50 states and find the best, most unique adventures they have to offer. Some places are pretty obvious (and for good reason!), but others require a bit more digging. Those end up being my favorite ; )
What kind of travel can you expect here? Well, plenty of Hawaii and beach travel, obviously. Outdoor adventures and National Parks, but with a luxury twist. Cities/towns/regions with strong local culture (I love places that distinctly feel like no other place in the world), and no matter where I go I’m always looking for indie bookshops, tennis programs & tournaments, significant historical sites & museums, and vintage/antique shops.
