Lately people have told me it seems like I’m going on a trip every other week. Although this is not the case in the last year I have traveled 3 times internationally, 8 times nationally and have another 3 trips planned in the next 3 months, all while working full time!

What to Pack: The Essentials

Whether traveling for 2 days or 4 weeks, to the tropics or the rainforest, I’ve come to learn that there are some things you cannot survive a trip without.

I’m becoming a master packer like I tend to move around a lot to different towns when I travel and need to pack as light as possible. I’ve brought my essentials down to a science and always get away with at most a carry-on and personal item. Not only is this more convenient but I don’t have to worry about surprise airline fees.

I put together the following list and images as a reference; I hope when you’re getting ready for your next trip you can customize & utilize it as your own. You’ll notice some of these are quite obvious but sometimes the most obvious items are the easiest to forget.  Continue reading “What to Pack: The Essentials”

This Blog’s Purpose

IMG_0951To be honest I’m not quite sure yet what it is, at least not all it is.

A Hummingbird’s Home

From the people, the tourist attractions, the animals, the waterfalls and the mountainous landscape, Costa Rica is a beautiful place and was such an amazing experience for me.

I was only able to spend 10 days in the country making it one of my shortest international trips to date. It was an unfriendly reminder how a full time job with a specific amount of vacation time would prove to be difficult for someone who enjoys traveling as much as I do. However, for the time being working is what funds my travels so this will teach me how to make the most of every trip no matter how long.

I came to several realizations in Costa Rica: Continue reading “A Hummingbird’s Home”
