After driving over 5 hours yesterday to visit Olympic's beaches and the Hoh Rainforest, we stuck closer to our campsite for our third and final day. But in Olympic, we didn't need to drive far to experience some magnificent scenery. We started by taking the 17 mile road from Port Angeles

Just shy of 1,500 square miles, Olympic National Park is the 13th largest National Park in the US. Olympic's unique because it contains 3 distinct eco-systems within its borders. At lower elevations, it's home to temperate rain forests with moss-drapped trees and ferns aplenty. Then, there's the 73 miles of

My parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this summer by taking a 6 week road trip across the US. Just them, a camper van and America's best national parks. (It's tight quarters, so I guess they still must like each other!) I coordinated my Seattle trip to align with their

After such a spectacularly whirlwind-tastic first day exploring Seattle, I was ready to use my second day to slow things down just a bit. Part of travel isn't just hitting all of the top sites but trying to also get a feel for what the destination is all about. What

Today, I flew to Seattle. I left on a 6 am flight... incredibly early. All in an effort to give myself as much time today as possible so I could begin my  whirlwind tour  of the city. (What I like to call "unapologetic tourist syndrome.") I arrived at 10:30 AM, perky

I was going through my old videos, and found this one from my Tongariro Crossing hike in 2009. You can see the volcanic activity that I mentioned earlier this week was evident. http://youtu.be/WuTYP-qfkcM

Earlier this summer, I visited Thomas Jefferson's house, Monticello. I went to college just over an hour from the 5,000 acre plantation and, would you believe that this was my first visit? (Sidenote: I'd traveled to Charlottesville just once during my tenure at JMU, and that was to go to

Living right outside DC, I see the Washington Monument all the time! Despite the relative normalcy of it, whenever I pass it by I always bring out my phone to snap a quick picture. Except, one day about a month ago, I was walking by the stone obelisk. It was ridiculously,

This week, I thought I'd highlight some of my favorite moments from when I was in New Zealand. Looking back, I sure did cram a lot of uber-adventurous activities within the month I was there. Enjoy!!

London is one of my all time favorite cities. Whenever I have a chance to visit, I go through the same ritual when I first arrive. Fly in early on a Saturday morning, drop off my bags at my hotel, hop on the tube and head to Borough Market to

Recently, I’ve been on a bit of an Instagram bender. I can’t go anywhere nowadays without looking at my surroundings (or my food…) trying to find a perfect shot that would be a good candidate to be “Instagram’d.” I've become a bit of a mobile adventurer. For those of you not

As the winter doldrums set in, with this photo we're reminded of breezier days soon to come. This photo was taken on the Marathon Island in the Florida Keys by my sunrise-loving mother, who is off jetsetting with my equally cool dad while I'm holding down the fort
