Learning Spanish with Duolingo While Staying Safe at Home

This post is written in collaboration with Duolingo, all opinions are my own.I’m going to be honest, I’ve always been a bit of a homebody. But all of a sudden, when I no longer have the option to be out and about I’ve been feeling a little stir crazy. One thing I’ve been enjoying? Dreaming up the trips Garrett and I will take together when this all passes. One place that’s been on my bucket list for ages is Spain. I’ve travelled abroad before to Argentina with my dad, and the language barrier was intimidating. I heavily relied on my… View Post

How to Save Money While Traveling

This post has been updated and republished since it’s original debut in August 2017. I’ve been traveling a lot lately. Since May I’ve gone to New York twice, Seattle once, I leave for Omaha on Friday and the week after I get back from Omaha I’m heading to Buenos Aires so I’m all about finding new ways I can save money while traveling.

Whenever I visit I feel like I discover a new hidden gem and I want to start sharing my must see’s in New York. With that said, it only felt natural to start off… View Post

How to Plan for the Best Spring Break Ever

I’m not in school anymore, but that doesn’t mean I’m not fully planning on taking advantage of spring break travel deals. I’ve been talking a lot with my friends on taking a trip this spring, and we’ve pitched ideas from the Wisconsin Dells to Costa Rica and just about everywhere in between. Clearly decision making isn’t any of our strong suits. With that said, no matter where we end up, a few… View Post

How to Plan Your Next Dream Vacation

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Apple Vacations for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Fall is here which means the leaves are changing and the temperature is dropping. Personally, I prefer summer. I like feeling the hot sun on my skin and being able to dive into a cool pool or river. Sure, fall is nice for bonfires and gold toned Instagram opps, but at the end of the day fall means that winter is right around the corner. And in my book, all that winter is good for is planning your winter getaway.… View Post
