A Look Back at 2016

The more I travel, the more I find that each year tends to group itself into themes. As I look back on 2016, the three themes that my travel seemed to rotate around was taking return trips, visiting national parks and traveling consistently through my continued #take12trips challenge. I have talked about return trips in the past and how the benefits of returning somewhere with a new perspective can often be just as beneficial as viewing a totally new destination. I’ve struggled with return trips previously, but fully embraced the concept this year and enjoyed showing family and friends around some of my favorite places. Read more

Travel Thursday: Savannah

As I sit here watching more snow accumulate outside my window, I cannot help but think of warmer times. Where would I rather be besides Boston? Pretty much anywhere right now. One of my favorite mother-daughter trips was to Savannah, Georgia where the sun beamed down on us for three whole days (what I would give for that right now!). Read more

A Look Back at 2014

2014 was a great year in many ways, but especially in the travel sense! January started with a return back to the slopes in Vermont for my first ski weekend since the 90s. A beautiful snowy weekend up north was the perfect way to make the most of the New England winter. Read more

Benefits of Renting an Apartment While Traveling

As I mentioned in my previous post, I did not love Paris the first time around and was determined to do everything differently on my second visit. One of those changes included staying in an apartment, especially since we were staying for a whole week. I had never stayed in an apartment while traveling, but after some research it seemed to be the best option. Read more

A Second Chance for Paris

I am going to be honest with you, I did not love Paris the first time I visited. I liked it, I just did not love it like I thought I would. As one of the most popular and romanticized cities in the world, I went in with high expectations and Paris did not meet them. Read more

The Charm of New Orleans

There is a popular street in the Southern US that gets a lot of attention this time of year. Bourbon Street, the epicenter of New Orleans, annually attracts revelers for the infamous Marti Gras celebration. Donned in green, yellow and purple, these partiers celebrate “Fat Tuesday” unlike anywhere else in the country. Read more

An Annual Tradition: The Mother-Daughter Trip

It all started when I was nine months old. I boarded my first flight to Colorado with my mom (and dad) and we have been traveling together ever since. My mom inherited her love of travel from her father and she in turn passed it down to me. When my brother was in high school, his yearly lacrosse tournament was held on her birthday weekend and he and my father would fly down to Maryland leaving us with a summer weekend wide open to celebrate her birthday weekend.

Take 12 Trips: An Original Travel Writer
