"We left our kids at home and took a trip to Chicago" by Hannah Lacy

Chicago: a city full of historical architecture. A city where you can see the skyscrapers from the beach. A city where you will eat the best pizza and the best hotdog. Chicago: the city where my husband and I found ourselves kid free for the first time in years. A city where we made new discoveries and refueled our passion for creativity. “Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful [...]

20 Hours in Reykjavík (and what to do on a long layover in Iceland)

Well, WOW Air did one thing right in my books recently... they planted me in Reykjavic, Iceland for a day long layover. Iceland. My #2 bucket list country (next in line to Japan) and I had 20 hours to taste test the capital of the world famous island. Ready, set, GO! We landed at 10 PM. My next flight wouldn't be until 6 PM the next day. Airport shops were closing [...]

"My First Visit to LONDON" by HMD

London is a world famous city, and raved about in travel community for all it's offerings, sights and history.  It often shocked people that I hadn't made my way to "THE City" after so long on the road and quite a few trips to Europe, which is just a short flight away.  I put it off for various reasons, all the while knowing I'd make my way there someday and would [...]

“I got kicked off a train and unexpectedly found myself in Dijon, France” by Ella Kim

One of the best trips that I ever took was to Dijon, France, although I was really on my way to Italy. I dreamt of eating homemade pasta by the ocean and taking a gondola ride on the canals but ended up in a city that is known for manufacturing one of the fanciest mustards in the world. When my friend Jenna arrived at my door in Paris, France where I [...]

Living like a Local in Leeds, England

In February, with plans to head back to the states by the end of March, I had about 5 weeks left to explore more of Canada (I was in Montreal), but I was really feeling the need to slow down before beginning the journey home.  The project I worked on in Canada was over and I'd already adjusted to the cold, so I thought: why not finally make my way to [...]

Hotel de Paris: My New Favorite Boutique Hotel in Montreal

Hotel de Paris is an old family manor turned hotel on Sherbrooke street in Montreal, and I was lucky enough to call it home for 10 days.  The hotel has been operating for over 30 years and has quite a cool growth story, starting out with only 9 rooms and expanding over the years to their current size which holds 43.  It speaks to the quality of the hotel that they [...]

What it’s like to Date Around the World

It always cracks me up how eager people are to hear about my dating life, especially since I started traveling internationally.  I've played coy and kept the juicy stories for "Girls Night" with close friends, but with so many of you asking, let me share a little bit with you- you know, woman to reader. So, you ask, what's it like to date abroad?   One word.... FUN. Dating in general [...]

My Favorite Places to Eat, Sleep and Beach in Bocas Del Toro, Panama

I am just a Hippie Island girl at heart, and nothing has ever made that more apparent than my stay in Bocas del Toro, Panama this month.  My heart felt so full as we first arrived on the Caribbean side of the mainland in Almirante.  It was the first time I'd seen the Caribbean!  We hopped into a long tail boat that reminded me of the ones I became so accustomed [...]

Goodbye Fear, Hello World

One of the most frequent things I hear from people I meet around the world is this: "Id love to do what you're doing but couldn't ever find the guts to actually do it. You are soooo brave." I respond in two ways. In my head: Am I really though?   Half the time I have no idea what I'm doing.   The other half I'm just in pure discovery mode...like [...]

Happily “Homeless”

It's funny how it's taken all of 840 days, 4 continents and 31 countries plus a visit to California for certain things to REALLY set in.  Sometimes you're moving so fast you don't realize the full gravity of what you're experiencing.  Have you ever been there?  I have...recently, quite a bit. I've spent many days lately letting the fact that I am actually homeless mentally "marinade."  I knew this all along...sort [...]
