14 Photos of Montenegro That Will Make You Want to Visit

14 Photos of Montenegro That Will Make You Want to Visit

A week before my Balkan road trip I sat in a meeting. I didn’t know the man sitting across from me. I didn’t know his name or his official job title, but I knew he outranked me because of the way he carried himself. We scoffed at the latest news about Trump shoving the prime minister […]

Friends to Cuba- Actually, Friends to Cubans

Friends to Cuba- Actually, Friends to Cubans

If loving Cuba is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. What I especially loved about it were it’s normal, everyday, working class people and the families of the slums. I visited Cuba legally, and hesitated to publish what I learned because of the icy relations of the past that have yet again been […]

Vancouver Island & Telegraph Cove

Vancouver Island & Telegraph Cove

∴Mountain Ranges & Sunshine∴ There’s something about the way the light shines on Vancouver Island. Even the weeds on the side of the road are beautiful. The green that hits you when you step off of the ferry is unreal. The island is roughly the size of Honshu, the main island of Japan—pretty big for […]

Authenticity in Costa Rica

Authenticity in Costa Rica

This is where this story began; it was hard not to miss the burning forest outside of Liberia. When the Spanish claimed “Costa Rica” they named it after the RICH land they saw. Mixed research indicates that in the 1940’s 75% of Costa Rica was forested. Suprise As of today 20,000 acres of land is deforested annually. Now, while […]

My Road Trip Through Japan

My Road Trip Through Japan

Honshu, the main island of Japan, is the place where the land shakes. It’s the cold wet you feel on your skin as you drive through a mountain cloud. It’s the vast expanse of the volcanic plateau stretching into gold and beige haze that seems to stretch into eternity.  The past is what I felt […]

Scratching the Surface in Oaxaca City

Scratching the Surface in Oaxaca City

In our modern urban lives we search for the latest cuisine hot-spots across American & European cities. On Friday nights we settle in to the hippest cantinas for tapas and  music. It’s exhausting to keep up with the latest trends as  the new continuously turns over. What happens when trendy is incredibly Old- World, relatively  unknown, & authentic? […]

My Experience at Auschwitz Concentration Camp: An Evil Like No Other

My Experience at Auschwitz Concentration Camp: An Evil Like No Other

To be honest, I had initial hesitancy about publishing this post. This experience haunted me–so much so– that I was hesitant to even publish an online article about my experience. How could words even begin to express such atrocity, such evil, such hate? How could I ever verbalize my disgust and astonishment about what I […]

Reality Check in Krakow Poland

Reality Check in Krakow Poland

It all began last year when my husband and I became obsessed with trying to figure out a way to get to Prague. All year we’ve watched flight prices rise and fall; we knew that if we could get to the continent of Europe that we could train it to the golden city. Needless to […]

Building the American Dream Part 1: Why I Loved BOSTON

Building the American Dream Part 1: Why I Loved BOSTON

Ah, Boston. The rebel born child of independence. The strong firstborn that once raised it’s fist to it’s hated colonialist parents. It’s the city that wore a scowling “screw you” on it’s face while it turned it’s back on everything safe and familiar that it once knew. It’s a place built on leadership; a place […]

Knees Quivering: A Photo A Top Horseshoe Bend

I’ve never been so scared of heights. I mean, one slip and you are as far gone as the pebbles clicking far below you. I had the best time exploring Page, AZ. My only regret was not making time to explore Antelope Canyon. Have you ever discovered something that frightened you while traveling? It’s one […]
