Autumn Photography Roundup

Autumn Photography Roundup

It's been forever since I've posted anything, thanks to the stress of school, work and extracurriculars. This has been one of the busiest, most stressful semesters, but also one of my wildest, most fun semesters (semester reflection coming soon, so I'll save more for that).

Fun Things to Do in Cancun, Mexico

Both of my blog posts last week were about Mexico, but I love writing about travel-related things, so here's another one.

What to Expect in Cancun, Mexico

What to Expect in Cancun, Mexico

I recently got back from a family vacation in Cancún, Mexico. Cancún is beautiful, and most of the people we encountered were really kind and welcoming.

The Summer Guide to Weekend Trips to Take From the Chicagoland Area

I love to travel, but I don't have the means to go all of these faraway destinations all the time. Living in the suburbs during my summer breaks at home gets repetitive, since there's not a whole lot to do. But I am fortunate to live in an area where there are a couple of [...]

Where to Visit in Des Moines

Where to Visit in Des Moines

I've been in Des Moines pretty consistently for about two and a half years now, and that's given me some time to find great places to hang out and eat around the city. Des Moines is on the rise, and even though it's a pretty small city, there's still some fun things to do, especially [...]

Winter Photography Roundup

Winter may not be over yet, but I had too many cool pictures to share, so I rounded up my favorite photos I've taken so far this winter. Most of my photos are from my adventures in Spain and Portugal, while some are senior photos I took in snowy weather for one of my close [...]

What to Expect When Traveling to Spain

While there are many different regions of Spain, and they all have their own differences, I decided to write a post about what to expect when traveling to Spain.
