First Month in Melbourne, Australia

It's now been over a month since I first arrived in Melbourne! Time has flown but I've completely adjusted to living in this vibrant city. From hostel life with 11 other people in my room to my private space in my apartment, it's been an electrifying whirlwind. I have an immense amount of gratitude for... Continue Reading →


Sydney, Australia | 3-day itinerary

I'm in Australia, and I'm loving it! It's been hard to find a moment to write a post summarizing my experiences because it's all been a whirlwind so far and I still have a lot of time that I'll be spending in this country. I arrived in Sydney on January 26th (Australia Day!) and spent 3... Continue Reading →

A Second Trip to the Blue City

  Thanks to Instagram and other social media platforms, the "Blue Pearl" of Morocco, Chefchaouen, has become a popular destination within the country among young travelers. It's striking- a glow of blue buildings in a cluster against the rugged backdrop of the Rif mountains is hard to not be impressed by. The air is cooler,... Continue Reading →


Not every travel moment is picture perfect. (sometimes the self-timer beats you)   I've been avoiding getting into another TV series these past few months. I didn’t want to fall into a trap and binge watch another Netflix-produced masterpiece that would have me neglecting to interact with other human beings for days. The other night,...

I was deeply enjoying my time spent with two of my favorite people who had recently moved to the windy city, and I didn't think to get out my camera very often. It was an awesome weekend. The weather was sunny and hot and... Continue Reading →

25 Life Lessons I’ve Learned in 25 Years

Today is my 25th birthday. 25 sounds way older than 24 for some reason. I still have a lot to learn, I've learned quite a few life lessons in my quarter-century on this planet. I thought I'd take the time to reflect on the top 25 and share them here. Some are funny, some are... Continue Reading →

The Grand Canyon | Arizona, USA

I hadn't been to Arizona since I was a very small child, so my memories of the state were limited if nonexistent. Returning as an adult to visit a friend studying at ASU, I was quickly enamored with this desert state, although I began to melt as soon as I stepped off the airplane. For... Continue Reading →

The Sahara Desert with Ready Morocco Tours

In April of 2017, I embarked on one of my biggest adventures yet with one of my oldest friends - a desert experience tour in Morocco. Being from Minnesota, the most un-desertlike place, we were so excited to experience firsthand the massive sand dunes of the largest desert in the world - The Sahara! It's... Continue Reading →
