Montreal: Road Trip & Food Fest

Last Thanksgiving, Ross and I decided to set our own Thanksgiving tradition – travel as a new family. Well, actually, I was freaking out that our days to travel were limited, and while we love being with family over the holidays, that time was not in our favor (because #adulthood). So we booked a trip […]

Colombia in 1 Week

Colombia has been on my list for a while – I planned with Ross in ’15 for MDW, but we dropped the ball; I wanted to go for my bachelorette in ’16, but then Zika; and then the countless plans with our best friends from Colombia. Though a trip to Colombia was a long time coming, […]

Paris Part II

NYC Catch 22. New Yorkers know this feeling well: when you get sick of living in NY, where do you go? No city compares. Except maybe Paris. Paris is one of the few cities Ross and I could see ourselves living in, one of the few places we’ve traveled to multiple times, and probably the […]

Paris 101

Often, the hardest part of starting something is deciding where to begin. I can’t count the number of times I thought about which entry should be my first – how do you even begin to choose with so many diverse trips under your belt? I was kicking the can down the road when an impromptu […]
