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?

A part of me wishes we went on our honeymoon right away. That we had woken up the morning after our wedding, rushed to the airport and flew to a relaxing vacation away from all the stress of life and wedding planning. But after going through it all, I am so glad we waited. Brian […]

Carry-On Essentials

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 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 […]

Saving Tips for Expensive Travel

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 […]

Rushmore, to parasailing in the Gulf of Mexico, to strolling down Pier 49 in San Fransisco, my parents really fostered my love […]
