Which State is Right for You

Whether you live in the USA or if you want to come visit, it’s a huge country. And by huge, I mean huge. With 50 states and 1 federal district, it reaches from one ocean to another, and contains 3 major mountain ranges and a variety of ecosystems. Now, if you’re coming from out of the US and want to know where you want to visit, this will help you. You can’t just say “I’m going to the US!” Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. Nope. It should be “I’m going to California!” or “I’m going to Utah!” You need…

The 10 Countries I Most Want to Visit

Ready for this? I’m excited about this post. To share with you where I want to go most in the world. What things I want to see. What places I want to go. What experiences I want to have. Do I want to go on a safari in South Africa, or a trek in Greenland? I guess we’ll find out. (Note: None of the photos in here are by me because, obviously, I don’t have pictures from any of these places.) 10. Italy Whether you’re interested in the creative Dolomites or beautiful Mediteranean beaches, Italy is surely for you. Or…

Top 10 Travel Tips from a Traveler

After 8 countries and 28 states, I think I can say that I have learned what it’s like to be a traveler. I have backpacked, budgeted and booked many trips, and will continue to do so to many more. It is in this way that I have learned how to travel the best, sometimes the hard way. Thinking of many factors, like safety, photos and fun, here are 10 things I have learned as a traveler.   Carry Cash Everywhere Cash is important in most countries. Places like Thailand and South Africa don’t always take credit cards, and as such…

A Guide to the Memorials and Museums of Washington D.C.

Well, the worthwhile ones at least. Washington D.C., and more specifically the National Mall, holds several major museums and memorials dedicated to preserving the history of the United States of America, and in some cases, the world. Here, I have listed only the places I deemed ‘worthwhile’ to visit. If it isn’t here, I didn’t think that you should waste your time doing it. It’s just not worth it to go to every single one of the stops, only to find that half of them were useless. That’s why I put this together. Lincoln Memorial This popular memorial was built…

The Best of New York City

10 million people. Thousands of buildings. A marvel of architecture and engineering. The most culturally diverse city in the world. New York City is many things. But boring is not one of them. Only 300 square miles, you couldn’t fit the entire city in a week, let alone a day. It’s revolutionary design, beautiful creativity and wide diversity make it the most interesting place to be. It’s like visiting China, Italy, Germany and Texas at the same time. New York City is, literally, the center of the universe. New York City is comprised of 5 boroughs, the most central of…

Why (And How) You Should Visit Boston

Known as ‘The Hub’ by its 700,000 residents, this historical mecca has long been a place where history buffs, baseball fans and university students are all together. With several major universities, including MIT and Harvard, within it’s boundaries, Boston was one of America’s first European colonies, housed by Puritans from the 1600’s onward. It is a city full of history, where it’s capacity to move forward is hindered by the tight streets and brick buildings of colonial Boston. Granted, that century-old feel is what gives Boston it’s New England feel. The obvious thing to do in Boston is Boston Common,…

Experience Chicago like a Local

Granted, I didn’t experience it exactly like a native. But after going to a Cub’s game, cruising along the river and swimming in Lake Michigan, it kinda felt like it. In 2016, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time since 1908. Wrigley Field, proud home of the Cubs, housed a sea of blue and white, most of which from the visiting Toronto Blue Jays fans. The stadium was full of them, and the rivaling home team, the Cubs, were ready for action. Today, we visited Wrigley Field. It’s a great place. Full of energy. I suppose…

Architecture in Chicago

After arriving in the Windy City via Amtrak, we went on a walk through the city filled with skyscrapers. Sorry, I don’t know all the names of the buildings. But they offer great views of the city above the Chicago River or bustling streets. After enjoying downtown, the Riverwalk and all the rest, we headed to The Second City. The highest rated comedy show in Chicago and a training center for actors, comedians, writers and artists.   At The Second City, we had a blast. Probably the funniest night of my life, I was constantly cracking up at the show…

Top Photos in San Francisco

The Golden Gate City. Baghdad by the Bay. Fog City. Shaky Town. San Francisco goes by many names. It’s people are so distinct, it’s architecture so unique and it’s culture so defined. Although I have visited San Francisco before, it has never been in one day. Here, I will show you exactly where to go for one day in the City by the Bay. The cloud cover towered over the skyline of San Francisco, but that is definitely very normal for the Golden Gate City. Our first touristy stop was Union Square, a one square block plaza flanked by buildings…

Off the Beaten Path in Chelan

Only accessible by boat or plane, the town of Stehekin in Northern Lake Chelan holds 80 people, who share it’s natural beauty and open hearted kindness with the few that visit. Stehekin is a town at the top of Lake Chelan. Lake Chelan, 55 miles long, is one of the deepest lakes in the USA, and one of the clearest too. The best, easiest, and cheapest way to get to Stehekin is on the Lady of the Lake. Departing from Chelan every morning at 8:30, there are two routes. The slow one and the fast one. The fast one gives…
