City Guide to Seattle

There’s this cult-like following of the Pacific Northwest.  Other hot vacation spots like Cabo or Florida just don’t compare to the hype surrounding PNW disciples.  At the end of July, I made my first trip to the Pacific Northwest, and I can see why all the fuss—its nature access, perfect weather and stunning views make… Continue reading City Guide to Seattle

Not Your Grandma’s Travel Advice

Originally published on Girl with a Planner. I love my grandma; I really do.  As kids, we’d go to the dollar store with her to pick out toys.  My siblings and I went to her house to play dress up with her colorful scarves and watch poorly-made VHS tapes about trolls.  Even though we can… Continue reading Not Your Grandma’s Travel Advice

Confessions of a Study Abroad Student

Sitting in an American classroom with a French textbook can only do so much.  Sure, it provides the base to succeed once abroad, but touching down on French soil is an entirely different experience.  I worked in Toulouse, France last summer and love learning to travel deeper, but have never experienced a traditional study abroad… Continue reading Confessions of a Study Abroad Student
