Guest Post: An Outside of Ordinary Vacation

Are you a planner or do you prefer to go with the flow? Traveling is lots of fun but can also be tiring and stressful. Please read Lori's story on how she let go of her need to plan for their recent trip to Maine and ended up having a wonderful time just embracing her surroundings and what the day offered them.

Pacific Coast Highway Drive

The second day of our Pacific Coast Highway drive exceeded our expectations. I apologize in advance because I took a gazillion amount of pictures and this post is going to be more about the photos than the writing. (These are the kind of posts my friend likes to read haha, and my husband informs me that gazillion is not...

Pacific Coast Highway – Thanksgiving Trip

Hi Everyone, Driving on the Pacific Coast Highway has been a dream of ours for a long time. This Thanksgiving seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally check out California Highway 1. I love when the forrest meets the ocean, so based on the photos, this area seemed like paradise to me. Well, it exceeded our expectations. I hope everyone had...

A Gorgeous Day at the Grand Canyon

Couple weeks ago our family from Sweden visited us and of course, living in Arizona, we took them to the Grand Canyon. We packed up some snacks, hopped in the car and hit the road. I have been to the Grand Canyon a couple gazillion times before but I think this was by far the best timing of the year to go. It...

A trip to gorgeous Sedona, AZ

Last weekend Ben's mom came to visit us! And of course, when someone visits you in Arizona, you take them to Sedona. Not that she has never been there before, she has been many - many times, it is just a place where you must go for a couple hours or maybe even for a weekend when you are...

Knocking off two new places from my bucket list…

Welcome to the gorgeous Zion and Bryce Canyons! Echo, Ben and I left to visit Zion Friday morning. Originally we were going to leave on Thursday but I came down with a cold on Wednesday and had a fever so decided to take Thursday slow. I have been sick for almost two weeks, I lost my voice and was struggling...

Let’s tour The Ryman Auditorium, the mother church of country music…

When I told people that Ben, Echo and I are about to go and check out Nashville, I received a "what did you just say?!" look from most of them...can't even blame them...neither Ben nor I am big fans of country music, but luckily we are both interested in seeing new places and learning about history. I think that even...

My trip to California in Pictures

Have you ever seen the movie "The Holiday"? Well, I feel like I have been living it a little. My friend had to go back to Hungary for a couple weeks so we made a deal that I would come to California to house and job sit for her. I left Monday afternoon, my first flight was out of this cute...

Horseshoe Bend, AZ

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta I had to start this blog post with this quote about Horseshoe Bend  because this is exactly how I felt, arriving to this wonderful site. We have heard about Horseshoe Bend before and it was definitely on our list to visit one day. Someone told us that the best...

Lake Powell, Utah/Arizona

Lake Powell is another fantastic site to see in Arizona/Utah. There is plenty to do: chilling by the beach (which we mastered by the end of the day), fishing, boating, water skiing,  jetskiing and camping. We had to walk down to the lake from an upper rest stop area because the drive gets a little rough closer to the beach....
