First Timer’s Guide to Aruba

For our wedding anniversary this year, we decided to go somewhere nearby and by nearby I mean less than a 12 hour flight from Las Vegas.

Since we only had 4 days, it came down to either New York City, Canada or the Caribbean. Two of those destinations would require a lot of walking or hiking so ultimately, we settled on the Caribbean. Most of our trips, including our recent  ...

The Ultimate Travel Guide to Yellowstone

Yellowstone is the first national park I visited back when I started traveling almost 3 years ago. It was definitely love at first sight! I remember hearing about Yellowstone through my Microbiology professor who couldn’t stop raving about her week-long vacation there. To think I even had a horrified look on my face when she gushed about a colorful hot spring formed by heat-loving bacteria. Little did I know that the hot spring that I used to call gross is now one of my favorite  ...
