Crowders Mountain, NC, United States for A Day Hike from Charlotte.

Looking for a decent hike just outside of Charlotte? Head to Crowders Mountain State Park. Crowders Mountain is in Gaston County, a short 40 minute drive from Charlotte. You can choose between a ton of different trails, ranging from strenuous to rolling hills. Summit the mountain at Pinnacle Peak and on a clear day you…

Bandon, OR, United States for Golf Marathon

As one gentlemen from Scotland told me once upon a time during my first visit to Bandon Dunes in Oregon, “There is no need to play in Scotland when you have a gem like this in the United States!”. Just returned from another fantastic three day trip and played all four of the courses. Each…

New York for Worlds most expensive parking

This is just a heads up. If you go to the World Trade Center, make ABSOLUTELY SURE that you take the subway. At $28 an hour after tax, it was a little expensive!

Oslo, Norway for The Kingdom of Queens, Kings, Vikings and Aurora Borealis

Heading to Norway you should visit not only Oslo, but other cities as well, each with its unique landskape and history. So if you have enough time and resourses to travel around the country, you should not miss: 1. Oslo: The capital of Norway is the most multicultural place in Scandinavia. The town is not…

Seattle, WA for The Fremont Solstice Fair/Solstice Cyclists

When an entire neighbourhood proudly claims a motto like ‘de libertas quirkas,’ (‘free to be peculiar’) you know they know how to party. I lived in Fremont three years, and attended the fair for two of them. It really is a spectacle. If a good ol’ fashioned fair romp is your thing, head on down…

Dublin, Ireland for Temple Bar

I love Dublin, definitely one of my favorite cities that I have ever been to. It is such a walkable, enjoyable city, even Temple Bar area which to be honest is the most touristic area in Dublin but still great fun. It was a cool area to meet other travelers. We met some new friends…

Budapest, Hungary for Night Photography

As a photographer, I love shooting at night. There are some cities that this isnt a good option and others that are great for this. Budapest is one of the cities that is great for shooting at night! There is subtle accent lighting and a lot of great overviews of the city. On both sides…

Portland, Oregon for Getting Lost in Powell’s Books

Powell’s City of Books is Mecca for bookworms. I try to make my personal pilgrimage on a yearly basis. My most recent trip was last fall and I spent an absurd amount of money on books and clever little gifts. As I usually do, I started with a stroll through some of my favorite sections:…

Seattle for Views and Culture

Amazing day of dining atop the space needle. After dinner, we went to the observation deck, which was an incredible way to see the city. As it got darker, we wandered over to the glass museum which really popped at night. I recommend!

Madrid, Spain for Experiencing Traveling Alone

Madrid was an incredible experience. I went to this beautiful city in the very beginning of my journey as a self proclaimed professional traveler and it was one of my first experiences with traveling alone in a different country from my own. At the time, I felt overwhelmed, but looking back it was probably one…

Rabat, Rabat-Sale-Zemmour-Zaer, Morocco for 12 Hours

When traveling to Morocco, generally the first city I hear people talk about is Marrakech. I loved Marrakech, but I think a city that is highly underrated, especially for being the capital of the country, is Rabat. I had a very short window of opportunity in Rabat. From the initial reaction, Rabat reminds me of…

Prague, Czech Republic for 24 Hours

When my friend and I traveled to Prague we had an immediate agenda; do as much as physically possible in the 24 hours that we had allotted for the city. We started early and immediately ventured to the infamous astronomical clock. It was beautiful and the wedding photos that were being taken directly underneath it…

Kraków, Poland for 48 Hours

Eastern Europe is deeply routed in history and Poland was no exception. Krakow was one of a kind. From experiencing the infamously delicious pierogi to submerging myself into the deep and dark history of the Auschwitz concentration camps, Krakow left me wishing I had more time. The hostel I stayed at was everything you could…

Ireland for 1 Week

It is hard to fit everything amazing about a place into one week of travel, in fact, I’d go as far as to say it iss impossible. A place where this holds the truest for me is Ireland. So true in fact, that I turned my two week holiday into an eight month residency. Ireland…
