Why Are There Horses Swimming At This Barbados Beach?

Why There Are Horse Swimming at this Barbados Beach: A travel guide to the Caribbean Island of Barbados at sunrise

Stumbling out of bed, I felt my way over to the sliding door and opened to a blast of warm air outside. Looking down below to the beach to check for any signs of life, there was one lone jogger tracing the shoreline. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore made a tempting argument to fall asleep to the melodic rhythm, but I began rubbing my eyes a little harder to stay awake. The sun hadn’t begun to…

Where To See Tulips in Amsterdam: Should I Go To Keukenhof?

A guide on when to visit the tulips in Amsterdam, what ticket to buy, photo-worthy tulip fields, and if Keukenhof is worth a visit.

If you managed to make it through my long (& emotional) post on exploring the tulip fields in the Netherlands, I applaud you. At first, I was going to include a mini guide and comparison section at the very end to help you decide on how to best see these tulips in Amsterdam, but after all the crying I did sorting through old photographs last week, it felt a bit weird. After our initial flight to Amsterdam was canceled and…

Once all the chaos begins to normalize and feel less so, it can be easy to fall into a routine in spite of…

Everything Ever: My 30 Before 30 Travel Bucket List

An unusual 30 Before 30 Travel Bucket List spanning almost all seven continents. How many of these have you completed?

Picture a simple, white desk with an open laptop, basking in the morning sun. Now, pan to the left and in the corner of this desk stands a massive stack of notebooks looming over all else, all precariously balancing on top of one other. Most are half-filled, several with only a few pages marked up, otherwise left in a pile unused. They contain appointments, to-do lists, inspiring quotes, how I’m feeling at that moment, and various doodles threaded in the…

I Attended Thailand’s Lantern Festival & It Was A Complete Nightmare

Yi Peng Lantern Festival in Chiang Mai Thailand Guide

Watching the night sky fill with thousands of blazing balls of light, the Yee Peng/Yi Peng lantern festival in Thailand is something you see on many bucket lists. When my travel partner Jenn and I realized our leg of the journey coincided with the festival’s potential dates (it varies each year depending on the full moon cycle), we were elated. It was, judging from the photos, something to not miss, being THE festival of festivals. It’s Instagrammed by the masses,…

An In-Depth Look At All The Popular Neighborhoods in Singapore: A Travel Guide

Guide to Neighborhoods in Singapore

The neighborhoods in Singapore are a part of a diverse melting pot that blend in a beautiful way. One can experience the colors of Little India, head to Chinatown for $3 lunch at a traditional food hawker stall, and wind down with a night of luxury shopping on Orchard Road. There is something for everyone’s budget in Singapore, truly. Whether you’re staying for a day or a month, Singapore has a lot going on under it’s seemingly sterile surface. Although…
