Exploring North Dakota

I don’t even remember the last time I went to North Dakota. Maybe it was during middle school when we drove to Glacier National Park? Either way, a return to the state was long over due! After leaving Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, we made the four hour drive up to Medora, North Dakota. If you enjoy big blue skies, lots of space and hundreds of miles in between towns, that drive is perfect for you! […]

The Best Murals in North & South Dakota

We recently returned from a fun week long road trip through North and South Dakota. I’d been to both states before, but I honestly remember nothing of North Dakota and hadn’t been to South Dakota since high school. Most people go for the National Parks, which was also our reason for going too. But while we were out there, I discovered a pretty rich public art scene in both states. As you know, I love […]

U.S. Travel Bucket List

Even though I’ve been to all but one U.S. state (just have Hawaii left), there are so many places I still haven’t seen! I thought it would be fun to create a U.S. destinations bucket list to go along with my international travel bucket list. Boston I should be able to check this off the list very soon – we booked a flight to Boston last week and are planning to go at the end […]

Six Places on My International Travel Bucket List

I have wanderlust on a typical day, but being stuck inside and not really knowing when we can travel again has intensified it. I’m hoping (fingers crossed) for a fall vacation to Boston and up the coast to Maine this year, but kind of playing that by ear and waiting to see how the virus spread goes before hopping on a flight. But since I’m over here dreaming about the day I can start checking […]

Nashville Murals

Nashville is one of my favorite cities to visit. Growing up in southern Indiana, we were only a couple hours away from Music City and would often go down on weekends to the Grand Ole Opry and later in college, I road tripped there for many concerts. The city has seen a boom in recent years of tourism, bachelorette parties and people moving in. It’s also seen a ton of murals going up all over […]

Redwoods, Crater Lake & the Oregon Coast

For the final leg of our trip, we left San Francisco and headed up the 101 until cutting over to make a stop at Ft. Bragg. I had planned to swing by Point Reyes National Seashore, but the GPS wasn’t working very well and it didn’t seem like we were headed to the right place, so instead of getting lost and getting stuck somewhere remote like we did last time we were in California, I […]
