Once Driven, Forever Travel.

Traveling is difficult when you go for long stretches at a time, but you always come back refreshed, feeling that you've accomplished something. I'm on my knees before I go anywhere in this world.

Travel for a professional

Travel for a professional

I've been lucky enough that I can gather all sorts of experiences and find inspiration by traveling around and by spending time with people I admire.

Travel Innovate Your World.

When I am traveling in a carriage, or walking after a good meal, or during the night when I cannot sleep; it is on such occasions that ideas flow best and most abundantly.

How to Find the Middle of Nowhere

The stars were brighter than I’d ever seen that night. The sky was so open out there and with no evidence of human civilization to obstruct it, I felt suddenly at home, and also beautifully alone.

The road to get there had been crazy for the minivan rental I was driving. I got stuck on a cattle grate and had to floor it over. I was driving sideways in a non-4 x 4 to get there without any cell signal. I admit it wasn’t my brightest moment. But looking back on the highlights of my life, this is kind of a pattern.

I was after this

I know that especially now, thanks to the ‘Rona, many people are seeking these uncrowded places, which provided you’re prepared, can be a wonderful thing.

I live for these moments. I strive for the places that I don’t have to share, and perhaps surprisingly,

The Ultimate Savannah Guide

Pin me!

Savannah is a Southern city with more than enough charm to go around. Much of Savannah’s architecture has either been preserved or restored, which combines with the surrounding oak trees to create a historical atmosphere. But while the quaint architecture feels like a step back into Antebellum times, the nightlife gives the city a pulse.

There are a ton of different ways to explore Savannah. Ghost tours are particularly famous here since the city is nearly 290 years old. You can also opt to see the city through trolley tours, walking tours, food tours… you get the point.

But if you want to walk the city’s streets without a guide, Savannah is definitely doable on your own. You can sufficiently explore the city over a weekend, though many people come back for longer because of its fairy tale-like atmosphere.

Here are my top things to do in Savannah:

The Solo Female Traveler’s Guide to Iceland

Pin me!

For a long time, Iceland was a relative nobody in the travel world. It didn’t have the popularity of Western Europe or the reputation of other Nordic countries. But thanks to Instagram and budget airline option (i.e. the now defunct WOW air), Iceland has exploded in popularity among travelers over the years.

In my opinion, Iceland is the perfect jumping off point for a solo female traveler. Its sweeping landscapes and friendly people will make you want to return again and again. My trips have been fantastic experiences, and even though people say Iceland is overtouristed, I’ve had plenty of amazing experiences without crazy crowds.

So what exactly can you expect from a solo trip to Iceland? Read on and find out.

There are thousands of podcasts out there that can teach us all kinds of new skills, tell wonderful stories, or educate us, but my favorite genre is motivation and personal development.

The Best Things to Do in Newfoundland

Pin me!

While it’s not the most common tourist destination in Canada, there’s a reason everyone who makes it to Newfoundland falls in love. Unspoiled wilderness, breathtaking hiking trails, whale watching, icebergs, and colorful communities make Newfoundland easy to fall for.

From a Newfoundland local, this post will help you plan a perfect Newfoundland itinerary:

Top Things to Do in Newfoundland

The best things to do are listed below going from east to west, but you could also do this itinerary in reverse if you’re coming in on the ferry to Port-aux-Basques.

While planning your trip, it’s important to remember that Newfoundland is a big province and takes 10 non-stop hours to drive across. To give everything in this itinerary justice would take two to three weeks, so if you have a shorter time frame just pick the regions that appeal to you most:

Eastern Newfoundland

Asheville’s Best Free + Budget Things to Do

Pin me!

Asheville is the nonconformist of North Carolina’s cities. It’s a part of the South, yet it doesn’t quite fit into this box. Asheville attracts both mountain enthusiasts and artsy folk, merging all of these influences to make a city that’s completely its own.

Asheville’s eccentric vibe has attracted celebrities throughout the years, from literary author Thomas Wolfe to the Obamas. Even the Vanderbilt family saw something special in the city and built the country’s largest home here!

While its increasing fame can give off the impression that Asheville is a quirky getaway for the rich, it’s totally doable on a budget. Here’s how:
