Camping in the Forest: A Tentrr Experience

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been scraping the bottom of the bucket lately on “things to do in the age of coronavirus”. I want to be safe, first and foremost, but I also want to enjoy summer, see my loved ones, and get out of the house a bit. So when a friend…

How to Take a Socially Distanced Vacation

It’s summer in the US, the weather is nice, and many of us have been cooped up at home for months to stop the spread of coronavirus. For me, that’s meant spending most of my time in a 600 square foot Manhattan apartment (with my fiancé!) with the occasional walk in Central Park or on…

How to Hike The Narrows in Zion National Park

Imagine that the only sound you hear is the flow of a gentle river. You gaze up at the towering red canyon walls. A thick layer of fog hangs overhead, with light barely breaking through. You notice that some snowflakes have managed to fall through the cracks, dissolving in the Virgin River. The water rushes…

National Parks Journey (Part 2)

Stunning natural scenery. Quirky museums. And a landscape that looks more like the moon than planet Earth. These were some of the sights I saw on part 2 of my journey through the northern Rocky Mountains area. You may have caught part 1, which involved driving from Bozeman, MT to Yellowstone and three glorious days…

A Journey Through Yellowstone (Part 1)

I’ve been MIA for a few weeks, but it’s not out of neglect. Nope, I was lucky enough to go on an incredible road trip in the Rocky Mountains visiting some of the national parks in the area: Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Craters of the Moon, and Glacier. What an experience! I’ll be honest: Yellowstone wasn’t…

Perfect Day in NYC: Essex Market

Saturday was one of those days that was a perfect NYC day, one of those days where I really can’t believe that I live here and I appreciate everything. And trust me, there are plenty NYC days that suck with the crowds, the unpredictable weather, subway breakdowns, stressful apartment searches and job hunts, the terrors…

3 Days in Quebec City

Last week, I jetted off to Québec City on an impromptu vacation. Looking for a getaway within driving distance, my boyfriend and I decided to drive up to French-speaking Canada and spend three days. Québec City has a rich culture and heritage as well as a fantastic food scene. Thanks to all who followed the…
