NY Road Trip: Watkins Glen State Park & Taughannock Falls

We decided to pull our lazy bums out of bed and see the sunrise on our final morning by Keuka Lake. The air was deeply crisp as the light began pouring out over the water. At one point we convinced ourselves that we would take a sunrise kayak ride, but that plan was quickly squashed … Continue reading NY Road Trip: Watkins Glen State Park & Taughannock Falls

NY Road Trip: Finger Lakes Wineries & Lake Lounging

We only had a few days in the Finger Lakes before heading north, and a lot of ambitious plans. We wanted to kayak AND hike AND drink all wines available within a 10-mile radius. Mom didn’t raise a quitter. The tiny house came with kayaks so we started there. I am not what most would … Continue reading NY Road Trip: Finger Lakes Wineries & Lake Lounging

NY Road Trip: Finger Lakes Tiny House

It feels strange to write again. When quarantine started and we were truly “hidden away” from the world, I thought I would find myself pouring words onto pages and posting them every step of the way. But when all predictability evaporates from your life, you cannot expect to be the same person you were. Our … Continue reading NY Road Trip: Finger Lakes Tiny House

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Melbourne Food Heaven

My blogs are currently being posted on a 2-month delay. Please remember that Australia is still experiencing a devastating bush fire season as a direct result of climate change. Re-posting this article with links for local relief organizations to donate to, if you can! We woke up to the faint sound of birds. I was … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Melbourne Food Heaven

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Shipwreck Coast, Port Fairy & Australian Country

Before I share this post, I want to clarify that I am blogging at a nearly 2-month delay. Since our departure from Australia, they have experienced a devastating wildfire season. 14 million acres of land has been burned (7x the acres burned in the 2018 California wildfires) and almost half a billion animals have been … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Shipwreck Coast, Port Fairy & Australian Country

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Wallabies, Snakes & 12 Apostles Sunsets

The next morning, we decided to brave another beautiful lookout in town that sat at the top of a *ahem* hill equally as steep as yesterday’s. We were better prepared this time and the groans of the car were less of a shock. Once again, it was worth the sweeping views from high above tiny … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Wallabies, Snakes & 12 Apostles Sunsets

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Great Ocean Road Koalas and “The Top Pub”

The next day we started off at the infamous breakfast buffet that our hotel dude had raved about. It did, in fact, have the exact styles of milk and brands of cereal that he rattled off like a computer. The woman at the front desk during checkout gave us some tips for our drive ahead, … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Great Ocean Road Koalas and “The Top Pub”

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Bellarine Wine Tour & Great Ocean Road

Honeymooning with Sara and Katie is never as simple as relaxing on a beach. After four days of lackadaisical living in Fiji and sipping sunlight through our pores it was time to hop onto another airplane. The rest of our trip would be centered on driving the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to Port Fairy … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Bellarine Wine Tour & Great Ocean Road

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Sunsets & a Kava Ceremony

We woke up by 7am with little effort. Jetlag or island time? The resort goes quiet so early at night and you just roll with it. We dug into a buffet breakfast and then went to grab a 2-person kayak before the rest of the crowd descended upon them. There was a small island not … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Sunsets & a Kava Ceremony

Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Waters & Island Hopping

There are no words that can adequately describe the feeling after your wedding when you are no longer “planning” anything. Your brain hangs in list-making limbo while you polish off the reception wine that you bought a case too much of. I felt so content in those days afterward but also desperately needed to hibernate. … Continue reading Honeymoon Across the Globe: Fiji Waters & Island Hopping
