The Complete Travel Guide to Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico

Back in February we took a siblings trip with Greg’s family to New Mexico. When his sister pitched the idea of taking a ski trip, our initial thought was “great!”. Then she mentioned doing it in New Mexico and we were a bit confused;. to be honest, I didn’t even know New Mexico had skiing! She and her husband are pros are finding cool, off-the-beaten-path destinations, so, knowing they would not lead us astray we booked tickets instantly and started daydreaming about our upcoming time in the Southwest. Prior to the trip I tried to do some research on Taos Ski Valley to get a sense of…

What To Do in Northwestern Montana in the Summer

If you've followed me for a little while you know that I grew up in Montana and it's my absolute favorite place to be, especially in the summer months when the days are long and the breathtaking scenery is at its peak. Because of my roots and love for Big Sky Country, I am frequently asked for suggestions on where to go and what to do in Montana. With over 147,000 square miles to explore, it can be tough to know where to start, so I'm focusing in on my favorite region…

Why Lake Como Should Be On Your Italy Itinerary

Rome. Florence. Venice. These cities are on every tourist's must-see list while in Italy.

In the foothills of the Alps on the border of Switzerland lies Lake Como, a picture-perfect paradise known as a home-away-from-home for the rich and famous. But don't let that steer you away…

Its allure is irresistible— spectacular beaches, gorgeous weather, towering cliffs, charming villages, lush gardens - the list can go on and on. While this entire region of Southern Italy is amazing, the picture-perfect town of Positano may be the crown jewel. A staircase of colorful homes tumbling down to the sea, this once sleepy village has become a haven of chic hotels, fine dining and…

12 Hours in Newport, RI

A handful of years ago when I was living in New York City, my mom came to visit and we went on a road trip up through New England. I have such fond memories of that week exploring quaint seaside towns, taking in the beautiful coastline and stopping at what felt like every Dunkin Donuts along I-95 for iced coffee and a box of Munchkins. Aside from quality time with her, the highlight of that trip was experiencing Newport for the first time, and I knew I'd make it a priority to one day return. During our trip to Rhode Island over Memorial Day Weekend, Greg and I…

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…
