Confession time. I’m kind of a Type A when it comes to planning trips. I so want to be the traveller that flies by the seat of her pants and goes with the flow. But when I have only a week or two at a place, I don’t want to leave things to chance. Actually, scratch that. I can’t. So I plan. And plan. And plan.
I want to roll into a place with my accommodation booked, a couple of activities planned, and a few places to eat noted. I don’t follow this guide to a tee though. If I wake up one morning with a cold (aka Portugal), I cancel my surfing lesson and take it easy by the beach instead. If someone tells me I must try a certain restaurant, I give it a shot. But I hate not having fallbacks. If I’m not sure where to head to for dinner, I pull out my guide and boom – I know where to go.
So I plan. A lot.
And I thought it was time to pay if forward. Below you can find my travel guides. I’ll be updating them over time and adding new destinations as I go.

We spent a week on this island and had an amazing time. Snorkeling with sea turtles, surfing, whale-watching, hiking above the clouds, swimming in waterfalls, etc. If you are planning a similar trip, check out my itinerary!
This little country blew me away with its beauty. And it seemed to have it all: beaches, mountains, and castles. Oh and just hands down the best sunset I’ve ever seen. Interested? Take a look at my itinerary below!
Want to explore rainforests, beaches, & cloud forests? Swim in waterfalls, snorkel with sea turtles, and spy on sloths? Then think Costa Rica. This was my first journey into Central America and it was a great preview of what Central America has to offer. You can bet I’m planning on coming back sooner rather than later.
This has become my family’s go-to vacation spot. Bar Harbor is a cute, seaside, New England town that shares an island with Acadia National Park. Want to relax and eat lobster? This is your town. Want to go sea-kayaking, hiking, and rock climbing? Let Bar Harbor be your base. It has it all! Check out my itinerary below for more details.
