Badlands National Park

On June 7, 2018 after a 12 hour overnight drive from Springfield, MO we made it to Badlands National Park in South Dakota. We didn’t have high expectations for this stop, because we needed a halfway point to Glacier, but this park definitely surprised us! There are many overlooks, trails, and a scenic drive visitors […]

Glacier National Park

From Badlands, we headed northwest to Glacier National Park in Montana. I definitely never thought that by 2018 I would have experienced Glacier National Park, but I am so glad we went north for this trip. It was such an incredible break from the hot and humid Caribbean island heat that I am used to. […]

MIDWAY MASSAGE : Soothing Touch Massages Done by the Visually Impaired

Sitting at a cubicle or desk for the majority of your day is surprisingly hard on your butt and back. If I am not studying, I am eating, sleeping, or sitting in a desk at class for four hours at a time. The break from work is nice, but after completing almost half of the […]

Squeezin’ In Some Scuba: Scuba Diving Certified in Grenada

This weekend, I officially became PADI (Professional Association of Diver Instructors) certified as an open water diver. I probably would not have gotten certified, if it weren’t for the tempting coral reef and saltwater marine life. Many years ago, I was diving with my dad. I was a teenager, and I knew little to nothing […]

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 […]

A Day at Mount Rainier National Park

From my Western road trip in June, I was feeling inspired to see more national parks, before leaving the country in August. 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 […]
