Tweet “He would write it for the reason he felt that all great literature, fiction and nonfiction, was written: truth comes out, in the end it always comes out. He would write it because he felt he had to.” ― Stephen King, The Shining • • • Most people can identify the significance of the […]

Tweet Alabama may conjure images of Forrest Gump and the like, but the state is more diverse than most people realize. If you’ve ever visited coastal Mobile, you might feel as though you’re in New Orleans or Savannah. The row houses and bougainvillea evoke similar images. First settled as a fort in 1702, the French, […]
Tweet Generations of travelers from far and wide have made their way to the northwestern corner of Wyoming for over 100 years. Perhaps the most well known of our National Parks System, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons national parks are only a few hours apart, making them easily bundled together into one trip. It’s the run-ins […]
Tweet The past six months have been ripe with stories of idiocy in the American National Parks System. At Yellowstone alone, there was the Chinese tourist fined for collecting water from the thermal springs, the Canadian YouTubers who went off the path at Grand Prismatic, the American man who died falling into the Norris Geyser […]

Tweet Mt. Timpanac, Credit: Mark Anderson As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, this summer will be my very first trip out west. There are so many places I haven’t been, and still won’t make it to this trip, that I want to see. One is Utah, with its diverse landscapes and ancient rock formations. I’d […]
Tweet I set a goal for 2016 to see more of the United States. Because, despite my years of travel, I’ve only seen some 20 or so states, most of them in the southern United States and the small states of the north. But there’s so much I still haven’t seen. I’ve already started planning […]
Tweet Solo travel wasn’t something I ever thought I would do, especially as a high schooler who could hardly leave the house for a period of time because of panic attacks. Anxiety plagued me on and off from a young age but was at its worst in ninth grade. It started to loosen its hold […]
