Someday is Today

After spending hours trimming my wardrobe for an upcoming move, I pulled into my parents’ driveway at four o’ clock in the morning (night shift probs). Due to a constantly messed up sleep schedule, I decided to try my luck in my parents’ DVR. Man, I hit the jackpot. In 2004 A Cinderella Story was […]

Week 1 on the Island: The Unexpected Waves of Reality

As soon as I was accepted into St. George’s University, I started a countdown on my phone so that I could see how many days until I got to start this exciting, new adventure. As the days decreased, my excitement increased. It wasn’t until three days before departure, that I realized what was happening. On […]

Scales, Wails, and Airline Tales: My First International Flight

I’ve began to think that traveling is really enjoying the views and kind humans, while making every mistake you can. And while it is stressful in the moment, the most important part is being able to laugh and learn. August 7th I got to the airport at 2pm for my 4:25 pm flight from Tulsa […]

Olympic National Park

Olympic National Park reminded me of how I have always envisioned Washington: foggy and chilly with ferries! The last day in Washington was spent at this national park. Seattle, Mount Rainier, and North Cascades shared similar forecasts of sunny, clear skies and 80s. A local resident recommended taking the Edmonds-Kingston ferry to get to Olympic […]

North Cascades National Park Day Trip!

North Cascades National Park was easily my favorite national park in Washington. From Seattle, it was about a 2.5 hour drive, and along the drive you start to see the massive Cascade Mountain Range. At this visitor shop, I purchased my National Park Passport, and received my first stamp in my passport. I plan to […]

July 22-27 I stayed in Seattle, Washington and was able to hit up all three national parks in the state! I spent one day in Seattle, and then allotted a day for each national park. On July 24, […]

Why I Chose Caribbean Medicine

Pictured above is St. George’s University in Grenada where I am attending medical school in the fall. Today gave me clarity. I tell people that I am going to the Caribbean for medical school, and most of the time people ask the same question first. WHY? At first, I was taken back by this question, […]

Zion National Park

  After checking out Horseshoe Bend, Zion National park was a short two hour drive to Utah. This was a last minute add in, but I couldn’t resist with it being so close! Luckily there was a campsite that opened up. I thought it was odd that at about 20 miles out my GPS was still saying […]

Horseshoe Bend

About two hours from the north and south entrance of Grand Canyon National Park and halfway to Zion National Park, is the iconic Horseshoe Bend displaying the Colorado River. This was how the beginning of Day 4 of 8 was spent on the way to Zion National Park. This part of the Grand Canyon is right outside of Page, AZ, […]

Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon was the inspiration for my western road trip! This national park charges an entry fee of $30 per vehicle, however, this is where I purchased my “America the Beautiful” National Park pass ($80 and it gets you into every national park for a year)! Purchasing this pass, made me want to take in as many […]

Petrified National Forest

It’s a 12 hour drive from Tulsa to Petrified National Forest. The good news is you gain two hours from the time zone differences. If you need to stretch your legs about halfway through,  you can also stop by Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX; even better, if you leave at midnight, the sun is just beginning to rise.
