Day Trips in Arizona

In living in Arizona, I’ve had the opportunity to visit a lot of amazing places around the state. Though I’ve written full posts about some of them, there were also several places that I couldn’t write a full post on but still wanted to mention. From the desert oasis of Agua Caliente Park to theContinue reading “Day Trips in Arizona”

How to Spend a Weekend in Tucson, Arizona

When I started my college education in summer 2017 and moved to Tucson, I knew very little about this amazing city. I had been here twice – once for a campus tour and once for registration. On both of those trips, I only visited the university campus and had no idea what else was aroundContinue reading “How to Spend a Weekend in Tucson, Arizona”

One Day Around Berkeley Springs, WV

Despite living in West Virginia for most of my life, I had never actually visited the state’s Eastern Panhandle until summer 2020. Our day around the Berkeley Springs area was actually part of a longer road trip; I was taking an exam in Martinsburg, which is close by, and we were visiting family friends inContinue reading “One Day Around Berkeley Springs, WV”

Winter at Blackwater Falls

Blackwater Falls is one of the loveliest places in West Virginia and especially well-located in Tucker County near lots of other fantastic places to explore! While I’ve been there numerous times over the years, we decided to spend this past Christmas at a cabin in the state park, which was an excellent decision in myContinue reading “Winter at Blackwater Falls”

A Taste of Hershey, Pennsylvania

About a year ago, I went on a fun spring break trip with my family. It was a great trip to see them, especially since I thought I would spend the rest of the semester in Arizona; instead, I flew home two weeks later after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. Consequently, it took me aContinue reading “A Taste of Hershey, Pennsylvania”

A Weekend in Prague, Czech Republic

Do you love beautiful buildings and fantastic food? Do you want to visit a city that looks like a fairytale? Do you want to burn calories by climbing over a thousand stairs in one weekend? Then you should visit Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic! Real talk, Prague is one of my favoriteContinue reading “A Weekend in Prague, Czech Republic”

One Day in Avignon, France

Of all the places I wanted to visit in France, Avignon was near the top of the list. This little Provençal town (also mentioned in my post about day trips in Provence) is, of course, beautiful to walk though, but it’s also home to the Palais des Papes (Papal Palace) and the famous Pont d’AvignonContinue reading “One Day in Avignon, France”

A Guide to Orvieto, Italy

My study abroad program in Italy was absolutely amazing, but one of the best parts of the trip was my home-base town of Orvieto. While there, I wrote a short blog about a typical day in Orvieto for me, and while this post will have some similarities, it’s also more of a guide to whatContinue reading “A Guide to Orvieto, Italy”
