A relaxing vacation is never something that my husband and I ever think of plan. We usually plan trips that are centered around exploring a new destination, waking up at the crack of dawn, and going back to our hotel just to sleep. So when our family decided to plan a trip to Cancun this […]

2020 Travel Plans & Goals

After a three-day road trip from Chicago, my bother and I had a few days together in Los Angeles before I flew back home. While our main priority was getting him unpacked and settled, we still had plenty of time for some sightseeing. I will warn you, since I didn’t have much time in Los […]

The Best Weekend Trips From Milwaukee

I recently took a much needed girls weekend to the Smoky Mountains. Since our first ever girls trip to Lake Geneva last Spring, we decided to make our trips a seasonal tradition. Of course, with our busy schedules, we finally managed to book our second trip almost exactly one year later (whoops)! So, I guess we […]

Girls Weekend in the Smokies

It’s taken me a while to write this post, because what I am about to say may upset and shock a few people… Ok, guys. I’m gonna say it! I did not like Vegas (gasp!). On our most recent vacation, Brian and I flew to Phoenix and road-tripped through Northern Arizona. We loved the sleepy […]

Why Vegas Isn’t For Everyone

We recently got back from our Spring Break trip to Arizona and Nevada, and completely fell in love with Northern Arizona. While our trip was short, we were able to fit in quite a bit of activities, and I wanted to share our favorites with you. Exploring Flagstaff When booking our Airbnb, we wanted a […]

Winter Door County Travel Guide

I feel like I haven’t talked about travel in a while on the blog, so I wanted to share a fun trip that Brian and I decided to take on a whim! Just about a year ago, we drove down to St. Louis for a little adventure when I was in-between jobs. We wanted to […]

48 Hours in St. Louis

This past weekend, Brian and I went to San Antonio for a family wedding. It was a quick trip, but we managed to see a lot of sites! The city in October was beautiful and warm. It was about 80 degrees the whole time we were there, so it was perfect for exploring and walking […]

Iceland: Part One

The first question we got asked when we told people we were going to Iceland for our honeymoon was, “Why Iceland?” We even were asked that while on our honeymoon, and to be honest, it’s a very simple answer. We wanted an adventure! While sitting on the beach and enjoying tropical beverages did sound amazing, we […]

Why Iceland?

With the Royal Wedding less than two days away, I became inspired to write about our time in London a few years ago. Before my senior year of college, I studied abroad in Rome, and after my last class, my husband and I traveled to London for a few days before heading back to the […]

Wandering Around London

Before the busy Summer sets in, a few girlfriends and I decided to take a weekend trip to Lake Geneva. A quick little getaway before our schedules explode and the only time we will see each other is at bridal showers or weddings. Surprisingly, this was our first EVER girls weekend! And I was honestly […]

Girls Weekend in Lake Geneva

During our time in Norway, we decided to venture out to the countryside after a day of exploring Oslo. Throughout the country, Norway can experience many different temperatures and weather conditions, so traveling through it was quite a sight. Some areas were covered in clouds and snow (in mid-August), while others, had temps of 70! Before our […]

Norwegian Countryside & Sognefjord

My husband and I traveled to Northern Europe a few summers ago, and Oslo was our final stop before heading back to Milwaukee. We were so excited to visit, because we are both part Norwegian and we couldn’t wait to experience the culture and see the infamous Norwegian countryside. We only stayed in Oslo for […]

A Day in Oslo

On our one-week anniversary, I thought I would share a bit about our mini-moon to Kohler, WI! As a wedding present to my new hubby, I bought us one night at The American Club. Instead of a physical gift, I decided that we needed a little time to celebrate our marriage since we aren’t going on our […]

Our Mini-Moon In Kohler

On our trip to Europe last summer, we visited three countries. My favorite, by far, was Denmark. As soon as we got of of the train in Copenhagen and began our walk to our AirB&B, I knew that I was going to love the short three days we had there. The city was so beautiful and […]

Exploring Copenhagen

During our time in Dublin, we spent a lot of time exploring the sites, shopping for aran wool and claddagh rings, and eating some good, hardy food. Of course, our list of things to do involved drinking lots of Irish whiskey and Guinness, and while I never actually kept count, I must have tried at least […]

Whiskey Drunk: And Other Dublin Experiences

Nashville Roadtrip

The summer after my freshman year of college, I decided to travel to Costa Rica to volunteer with International Student Volunteers (ISV). I was 18 and had no idea what to expect. Most people go to Costa Rica for a relaxing time at a resort… I was going to be living in the rainforest doing conservation […]

5 Things I Learned While Living in the Rainforest

This past summer, my friend and I were talking about how she had never really traveled and how she wants to explore the world. After telling her to “seize the day,” I thought to myself, “why not plan a trip together?!” We started planning our European adventure in September of last year and picking where to go […]
