Fall is finally upon us (my favorite season) and it's the perfect time to travel!  Destinations tend to be less crowded, it's cheaper to travel, and some places have the most gorgeous fall leaves.  However, the weather tends to get a bit crisper, which equals more layers to stay comfortable.  That means that carry-on or… Continue reading Multi-Use Fall Travel Essentials

Tour of Italy, Part 3: Venice

For the final leg of our tour of Italy, we went to Venice, a city worth getting lost in.  We cruised along the lagoon in the packed water bus, the more economical option to arrive at our hotel.  It was a gorgeous, sunny day, the light reflecting off the water, boats and gondolas effortlessly cruising… Continue reading Tour of Italy, Part 3: Venice

Tour of Italy, Part 2: Florence

After our time in Rome, we took the train up to Florence, admiring the countryside as we whizzed by.  I immediately knew I loved the atmosphere of Florence better than Rome when I stepped out of the station.  Florence has a sophisticated small-town presence while still being a bigger city.  The streets weren’t overrun by… Continue reading Tour of Italy, Part 2: Florence

Tour of Italy, Part 1: Rome and the Amalfi Coast

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to bring my family on a whirlwind trip through Italy.  No one besides myself had been, so we had a lot of ground to cover if we wanted to see all that Italy had to offer.  We took 8 days to see 5 cities and it was beautiful,… Continue reading Tour of Italy, Part 1: Rome and the Amalfi Coast

Paris Trip Part 1:  The Sights and All the Feels

This past week, I had the absolute pleasure of traveling with my friend, and fellow flight attendant, to beautiful Paris!  We have both been before, so this trip was more for the shopping and food, and less for the sight-seeing.  I hadn't visited Paris since my time studying abroad in France six years ago, and… Continue reading Paris Trip Part 1:  The Sights and All the Feels

What Makes a Great Travel Backpack

I'll admit, I've resisted carrying a backpack until quite recently.  I can be a bit picky when it comes to what I wear and use, and I found backpacks bulky and unstylish.  I even forgo a backpack in college. I didn't have to carry as many books as I once did in high school, so… Continue reading What Makes a Great Travel Backpack
