This Woman Hiked across North Carolina - TWICE

•••
Maybe you have read (or seen) 'Wild' and have been utterly inspired to give long distance hiking a try yourself. Maybe, like me, your desire to hike across a region, state or country goes back further than 2012 when the book was published. Or maybe you're still not so sure about why anybody would want to go through the pain and torture that is long-term hiki[...]

A year full of Travel and void of Regrets

•••
I have been “home” for a combined total of 14 weeks this past year. I can confidently say that I have friends all over the United States. I have been to places that I never knew existed and I have met people that have changed my life for the better. Most importantly, I have learned so much about myself and about the inspiring world around me. I have been [...]

What Makes me feel at Home in Colorado?

•••
Everyone knows that the holidays are typically when you head home. Home means different things to different people; sometimes it doesn't even mean a location, but a group of people. Sometimes it is getting away from people and heading to a place. For me, home has more than one meaning, because I have more than one home. On the one hand it's going to Target w[...]

The day has come. Today we’ll arrive at Desert Trip Festival in Indio, California. After several days' road-tripping across the United States, Stefan and I wake up in our hotel room in Twentynine Palms, about an hour's drive from Indio. We're fairly  nervous at what Desert Trip might bring; the line up - which includes The Rolling Stones, Paul McCa[...]

Finding Love in San Francisco

•••
I recently returned from a whirlwind trip to San Francisco, CA. The trip was all about love, but not in the two-people-fall-in-love kind of way; it was about one woman (me) and one city (San Francisco).  I have been to the City by the Bay before as a tourist on my first ever solo trip, as a cheerleader when my mom ran the Nike Women's Marathon, and as a tour[...]

6 Instagrammers That Make You Want to Escape into the Montana Wilderness

•••
'Live and let live' is the Montana state motto, and every inch of this state embodies the wild American spirit. The sky really does seem bluer and bigger, the beer tastes better from a rustic town tap, the roads are winding, and the wildlife isn't afraid to get up close and personal. As I gear up for my last-minute road trip through the Montana wilderness[...]

50 Must See Places in the Western United States

•••
This summer I returned to my home country after living in the Far East and embarked on a month long road trip through the Western United States, experiencing my homeland like I never dreamed: through a Great American Road trip. Coming from the East Coast originally, I have spent many long hours experiencing the open highways of America. However, much of t[...]

8 Surprising Cities to Add to Your Cross-Country Road Trip

•••
One of the coolest parts of planning your next road trip is that you can constantly search for new and less-explored parts of the country — a bonus to living in such a vast space as the United States. There is nothing quite like getting lost in nature or among locals in some remote or unknown location. If you’ve yet to kick off your next cross-country jou[...]
