5 Alternative Canal Cruises in Amsterdam

This article on alternative canal cruises in Amsterdam is inspired by a recent trip to San Francisco. As I was holding up my Sign in Mission Dolores, San Francisco, I noticed a familiar face walking towards me. Up walks one of my good friends from high school that I have not seen in years! Can you say coincidence? She was visiting San Francisco and happened to be having a great day. Which in other words mean she had a good amount of mimosas ...

Lake Tahoe with Jonny Mac

The man referred to in my previous blog post is named Jonny Mac. He was the bartender at The Boathouse on the Pier with the deep, raspy voice that mesmerized me. I was sure he would have a good story because what bartender doesn’t? Especially in South Lake Tahoe! Jonny Mac wasn’t convinced he had a story to tell, but I was determined to learn more about him. Are you ready to hear what I learned? Jonny Mac was originally from Cincinnati, ...

It continues to be a location that I crave, so whenever I am in California, you bet I spend a weekend in South Lake Tahoe. My boyfriend and I drove up to South Lake Tahoe early one Saturday morning with plans of adventuring outdoors the entire weekend. Unfortunately, it snowed ...

Oxford Day Trip

If you’re looking for a quick day trip out of London, I highly recommend Oxford! My sister and her husband recently came to visit me in London for the four day Easter weekend. Our weekend was jam packed, but we wanted to squeeze in a day trip somewhere outside of the city. I had been to Oxford once before on a solo adventure. So, I thought it would be awesome to return to the cute, college town with some company. We scheduled in the Oxford ...

Lyn and Fin Travel Ireland

By this point in my blog, you should know that I love sharing travel stories. One day, as I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram, I stumbled upon a post of only words. So, obviously I read it. The author of this post is a good friend of mine here in London, Lyn. Lyn has a beautiful soul full of wanderlust and adventure, so I knew whatever this post was, it was going to be good. I hope this tale of travel in Ireland inspires and moves ...

Birthday with the Huskies

The second story I heard in Amsterdam was, again, told by one of the sisters. But it was too good not to write about! Now, I can’t remember if this sister was Madeline or Sydney…so, we will just say it was Sydney. Sydney told me the story about her twenty-first birthday, and it also had to do with dogs! This time, the dogs were the Norway huskies. If you remember from my Follow the Dog post, Sydney and her sister were from the west coast ...
