7 Travel Reads That Will Give You Major Wanderlust

Growing up I hated reading, you could not pay me enough to pick up a book… Spark notes were my best friend throughout school, as reading assignments were my worst nightmare. It was not until a few years ago that I realized when you find a genre that fits you, you actually enjoy reading. As my love for travel grew so did my love for reading about it. Now to me there is no better feeling than finding a book you cannot put down. Continue reading 7 Travel Reads That Will Give You Major Wanderlust

Stuck In Amsterdam

I know by the title you’re expecting this awesome story of how I got stuck in Amsterdam and had a wild time, in fact this story is the polar opposite. We’re always so quick to talk about the positive experiences we have while traveling, but fail to mention some of the negatives. A year ago I was stuck in Amsterdam due to a missed connection on my way back to New York. At the time I was in tears, but now I look back and realize that this just like any other experience has help shape me into the traveler I am today.

Oktoberfest Guide: Tips for Survival – The DO’s and DON’Ts

Oktoberfest; the world’s largest beer festival is beginning this weekend. I know it’s the 3rd week of September, but most of the festival actually takes place this month. The festival has become popular and is celebrated all around the world, but if you get a chance to head to the birth place of it all you won’t be disappointed (if you are attending the festival this year – you can’t see me right now, but I am green with envy). Oktoberfest comes but once a year in Munich, Germany – it is in fact one of the cities largest and most profitable tourist attractions. The 16 day party attracts over 6 million people every year who consume around 1.5 million gallons of beer. Sound like a good time? Trust me, it is.

Costa Rican Adventure

Going into my Costa Rica trip I wasn’t sure what to expect or what I was getting myself into. From zip lining through the rainforest to swimming under a waterfall this beautiful country exceeded any expectations I did have. When I told people I was going to Costa Rica they were jealous of the “relaxing beach vacation” I was about to embark on, but it was the complete opposite. In fact we only spent 1 day at the beach, but I prefered it this way. I felt as though I was challenged to try new things, and step out of my comfort zone everyday.

Top 5 Things To Do In Reykjavik

Planning a trip to Iceland? If so you’re one step closer to making the smartest decision of your life.  I’ll start off by saying I never thought of going to Iceland. In fact I only planned the trip because the flight was super cheap, but I completely fell in love with this incredible country from the moment I picked up my first travel guide. To the surprise of many Iceland has a lot to offer. I only had three and a half days so I had to fit in as much as I possibly could. As soon as I landed I hit the ground running with my jam packed schedule. I dropped my stuff off at the hostel and on little to no sleep I was off on my first adventure. Continue reading Top 5 Things To Do In Reykjavik

Solo Trip Success

I  did it. I just returned home from my first solo trip, and I have to say it has been one of the best ones thus far. Yes I have traveled by myself many times, but not like this. This was my first trip completely alone. I can’t take all the credit though, I owe a lot of this trips success to the location. Apart from being incredibly gorgeous Iceland is also one of the safest countries in the world (reassuring for a first time solo female traveler). Iceland is now in my top 5 of the countries I’ve visited (so far) and who would have thought. When I told people I was going on this trip I got some strange looks followed by “Why Iceland?” (the same people who have now liked every single photo I have posted on social media).
