Birthday sunset cruise ⛵️🌅

It’s hard to genuinely surprise me. I can usually read the clues and between the lines, so this year’s annual birthday pilgrimage was an unexpected highlight of the year. Due to recent hurricane damage, being hit by a distracted driver 2 days prior totaling my jeep and a busy fall work schedule, we opted toContinue reading “Birthday sunset cruise ⛵️🌅”

Devil’s Kitchen trek

This trek was an absolute delight! Being my 97th National Monument visited, it says a lot that this is my absolute FAVORITE to date. I was truly blown away! Before even escaping the comfort of my car AC, the 23 mile scenic drive was easily one of the best in the country passing by mindContinue reading “Devil’s Kitchen trek”

3:20am wake up call to adventure

3:20am the alarm echos and I break out of bed like a bolt of lightning. Afraid of being late for my Dry Tortugas National Park adventure, I had packed my bag the night prior and was out the door in 11 mins flat. Being a holiday weekend in the FL Keys, every dive motel isContinue reading “3:20am wake up call to adventure”

Glass dome glamping 🇳🇴

I had been looking forward to this stay since I originally added Norway to my bucket list six years ago. Knowing that it endcapped a week of trekking in the majestic highlands towards the end of the 2022 season, it was to be one of the highlights and rewards for the 50+ miles conquered. AfterContinue reading “Glass dome glamping 🇳🇴”

Rattlesnake Canyon trek

It was a 102 degree scorcher in late July but I was determined to conquer this 9 mi very remote trek. With 35+ arches gracing this path, the eye candy was amazing! I knew getting to the start of this remote trek was going to be tough and I did end up getting lost inContinue reading “Rattlesnake Canyon trek”

Disney Cruise 2022 🚢

Even though I’m blessed to have already been on 23 Disney Cruises, it’s been over 8 years since my last sailing! Who is over the moon excited?!? And to be able to twist the arms of some of my favorite people on this planet to hop onboard together (of course I exaggerate because it wasContinue reading “Disney Cruise 2022 🚢”

Garth Brooks Soundcheck

Unexpected perks are truly blessings. Volunteering to work guest services for our suites on the biggest concert ever hosted at Camping World Stadium, I really had the mindset to just be ready for anything amongst the 70,000 guests. I had seen Garth for my 40th birthday and it was over the top amazing (even thoughContinue reading “Garth Brooks Soundcheck”

Glacier hike 🇳🇴

This was the crazy adventure I didn’t know I needed. After strapping on 3 inch crampons, helmet, harness and grabbing an ice axe, we got secured to our teammates via rope. Who would entrust me with an axe and what did we just get ourselves into? The daunting 300m vertical ice field ahead made usContinue reading “Glacier hike 🇳🇴”

Fisher Towers hike

I can count on one hand the number of times my body has completely shut down and said “nope, you are not 22 years old anymore”. This day, I was 90% sure I was going to skip this iconic trek but my adventurous side won over as I passed the exit and I found myselfContinue reading “Fisher Towers hike”

Travel reading pleasure

What’s your favorite reading genre? I’m a huge fan of thriller/suspense lawyer type books. A complete 360 from my chosen profession and my release. But I really only read for pleasure while on vacation mostly just because of being in the regular work grind. And nobody knows, but growing up I didn’t enjoy reading andContinue reading “Travel reading pleasure”
