Timeless Train Travel Across Great Britain: My Journey on Belmond's British Pullman

I love seeking out unique travel experiences and this past year I’ve had my eyes on your not-so-typical train journeys. I had never given train travel much thought, but with it being Greg’s favorite way to get around Europe, I was curious what was out there in terms of luxury overnight sleeper cars - a way to take his preferred mode of transportation and turn it into the destination itself. After a little research I was instantly on-board with the idea…

Hotel Spotlight: Luxury in Banff at Fairmont Banff Springs and Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

I checked into the Fairmont Banff Springs on a Friday afternoon and upon pulling up to its grand entrance immediately understood why it’s nicknamed "The Castle of the Rockies".  Surrounded by majestic mountains and just a short walk from the resort town of Banff, the hotel sits high at 4,600 feet and is more castle than hotel with a stone facade and…

The Streets You Shouldn't Miss While Visiting Charleston

I love being able to check new places off my bucket list and that's exactly what I did back in April when Greg and I met up with his parents to visit the oh so charming Southern city of Charleston, South Carolina. Horse-drawn carriages leisurely make their way down picture-perfect cobblestone streets, where colorful antebellum homes and Spanish moss adorned oaks are the rule rather than the exception.

The sight of these seemingly endless fields set against stunning mountain peaks is one of the things I look forward to most when I visit my home state in the summer months.

The right apps can be great tools for discovering hidden gems, experiencing a city like the locals, or providing tips for travel ease, but with the overwhelming amount to choose from, it can be intimidating and confusing to find…

My Guide to Whitefish, Montana


While August days are typically hot and sunny, the temperatures in Montana are known to run a wide range and can drastically change from day to day (like 40 or 50 degree swings!), so when the temperature drops in the Flathead Valley I enjoy to get off the lake and spend a day exploring. Aside from Bigfork, my favorite town in the region is Whitefish, so on a cool Thursday afternoon we swapped our swimsuits for sweaters and made the short drive up. Situated thirty miles north of Flathead Lake and thirty miles west of Glacier National Park, Whitefish is a western…
