Snapshot of the Week: Chichen Itza, Mexico

I am fresh back from my trip to Mexico. I had an awesome time… but am in the midst of some serious Cancun-withdrawal. To help me transition back to the real world, I wanted to share one of the experiences I had on my trip. One day during the week, I visited the Mayan ruins […]

Next Stop: Cancun, Mexico!

After a glorious fall filled with fun local travels and a lot of really hard work, tomorrow I’m heading off to one of my favorite locales… Cancun, Mexico. I’ve been traveling to Cancun’s pearly white sand beaches every Thanksgiving break since I was in middle school. Needless to say, it’s been a long time and […]

#FriFotos: Windows

I’ve always loved photographing windows. The structure, the architecture… the promise of what view lies outside it. Something about them always has enticed me to whip out my camera and snap a quick shot. And sometimes, it isn’t even the actual window itself, per se, but the way a reflection bounces off of the glassy surface […]

2011: A Look Back

At first glance, 2011 was a bit of a tough travel year for me. Coming off of the epic-ness that was 2010 (A month backpacking around Australia and New Zealand?! Hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon?!) it’s been difficult to have to grapple with a consistent lack of excess cash and time off […]

Cancun (Days 2 & 3)

Hola! Everything is still going great in Mexico. Weather is beautful, family is fun- perfect perfect. Yesterday, Sunday, we spent the day on the (limited, rocky) beach and by the pool with a break mid-day at 1 for the Welcome Party. I never miss the Welcome Party- sure, the music is cheesy, but there is […]

We’re here! (Cancun Day 1)

Woke up yesterday morning at 5:15 am (ack!) and headed to National for our flight. The American Airlines counter was really unorganized, so it all was a blur to me since I wasn’t caffeinated yet, but other than that, our trip was relatively travel-trouble free. While there was no food on the flights, they did […]
