Planning a trip to South America can be SO exciting! It’s a continent rich in diversity and culture, one that has so much to offer. I had the pleasure of booking a trip to both Ecuador and Peru and I was PUMPED to visit South America for the first time! I had no idea what […]

Iceland’s Best Season

Waterfalls, lava fields, geysers, glaciers. Iceland is known for its pristine natural beauty. Hundreds of thousands of Americans flock to this northern-most capital city annually, considerable amounts between the months of June and August.

Quit Daydreaming, JUST GO.

It has come to my attention that Americans do not know how to travel on a budget. The most exciting thing about Europe is that it is entirely tangible for everyone from the well traveled to the first timers. Europe is a modge podge of culture, experiences, and landscapes. From the beautifully rainy cliffs of […]
