the best of grand cayman


This past March, I dusted off my passport and spent a week at the Caribbean Club on the island of Grand Cayman. Located just steps from the gorgeous soft white sands of Seven Mile Beach, it was a perfect location for a relaxing getaway.

great smoky mountains national park


In an effort to explore more of the United States, my boyfriend and I have been slowly checking off National Parks on our list. So far, we have traveled west to the oldest, one of the largest, and probably the best known national park, Yellowstone, and also the stunning snow capped mountain filled Grand Teton National Park. A little closer to home, we traveled north to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where we explored Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore along the banks of crystal clear Lake Superior. This past Thanksgiving, we spent a long weekend in eastern Tennessee exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

copenhagen


Copenhagen was never a "planned out months ago" type of trip. As luck had it, a price alert popped up in my inbox a few weeks before with a cheap flight offer to the Danish capital that was extremely hard to pass up. It has been over seven years since I've been to Europe and I have never been to Denmark. So with that, I said to myself, "why not?" and bought the ticket.

the people and villages of tanzania


On our two week overland trip in Tanzania, we covered quite a large distance. We started north along the border with Kenya all the way southeast to the city of Dar Es Salaam. Along the way, we were fortunate enough to visit a few villages, some small enough to be just a quick blip along our route to larger ones, full of hustle and bustle.

stone town, zanzibar



After seeing all of the animals on Tanzania's mainland, we hopped a ferry taking us from Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania's largest city to the island of Zanzibar. After the quick two hour ride, we disembarked at the main port and walked to our hotel in Stone Town.
