  • Heading West | Visiting Roswell, Carlsbad Caverns and My New Home

    Heading West | Visiting Roswell, Carlsbad Caverns and My New Home

    Just like that, My Great American Road Trip is headed back west. If you read my post when I started traveling back east, you’re probably very confused — honestly, so am I. Over the course of 4.5 months, I crossed the entire United States from coast-to-coast THREE times. It’s a really long and complicated story, […]

  • Heading East | Snow in September, Dinosaurs and John Mayer’s House

    Heading East | Snow in September, Dinosaurs and John Mayer’s House

    My Great American Road Trip is heading east! In a little less than a week’s time, I made it from Oregon, to Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, to Missouri where I’ll be for a week! It was a crazy few days. I saw snow in September, a man walking a dinosaur, and drove […]

  • Washington | Exploring Downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier

    Washington | Exploring Downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier

    There’s something special about Seattle, and I can’t quite place it. I just love the feel of the city, the gloomy skies, the UFOs everywhere. Seattle is just different—and I like that. My recent trip to Washington was great! I spent my time exploring Downtown Seattle, camping in the woods, and meeting family I’d never […]

  • A Life on the Road | Leaving comfort behind for a life of exploring and discovering

    A Life on the Road | Leaving comfort behind for a life of exploring and discovering

    If you had met me a few years ago, I would have told you that having a secure, stable job, a home, and a routine were the most important things in life. I’ve grown since then. I’ve gone down that path and I’ve realized that following a structure like that only led me to being […]

  • Life Lately: Two more months left in Hawaii!

    Life Lately: Two more months left in Hawaii!

    Life has been pretty busy and fast-paced lately, but it’s good. So, so good. If you read my last post, I’ve been here in Hawaii for 6 months now, which I still can’t grasp. Time FLIES. And it hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down. Here’s what life has been looking like lately. I had the […]

  • Visiting Las Vegas in the Winter

    Visiting Las Vegas in the Winter

    I recently came back from a quick trip to Arizona and Las Vegas. It was one of the most incredible weeks I’ve ever spent, and it was definitely a much-needed vacation. Plus, visiting Las vegas during the winter time is such a different experience than visiting during warmer months. I’m not sure what it is… […]

  • Driving through the Arizona desert

    Driving through the Arizona desert

    I recently drove through the Arizona desert, and I fell in love. I’ve been dreaming of deserts, cacti, quirky roadside attractions and friendly in-the-middle-of-nowhere gas stations – and this trip was everything I wanted and more. There’s just something about driving through the desert. It feels warm even though it’s the dead of winter. It […]

  • Halloween at Disneyland

    Halloween at Disneyland

    I grew up in LA, so it will always have a special place in my heart. There’s nothing quite like going back to a familiar place, seeing your old friends and family, and reminiscing on good times. And in my most recent trip to the City of Angels, I did just that. After I left […]

  • Last Days in Canada

    Last Days in Canada

    Three weeks ago, I decided to leave the home and life I made myself in Canada. It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, and it was really rough on me. Luckily, friends from work were there for me, friends from college kept me company on the phone, and my mom […]

  • I had tea with Michelle Obama

    I had tea with Michelle Obama

    What do you do when you get an email that reads: “First Lady Michelle Obama invites you to a conversation about the health of our nation to be held at the White House”? Scream. I’ve visited the White House a few years ago, but I never got to go inside. Let alone be on a list of […]
