The Ultimate 3-day Denver Guide

Exploring is always fun, but there’s always something new and different to try when you go back somewhere as an older and [hopefully] wiser person. I definitely saw a different side of Denver during this trip than I did when I used to visit my grandparents as a kid.

Eats!
The first thing we did after dropping off our bags was head to Snooze. After people repeatedly recommended this place, I decided it was worth a shot and I’m so glad I did. It was so delicious.

Favorite Brunch Spots in Atlanta

Why should you try all of the breakfast/brunch places in Atlanta to find a great one when I already have? Here are some of my favorites [in no particular order]!
 

 
Treehouse
I love this spot. Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is also so fun. The patio is a great place to eat especially on a nice day. I got huevos rancheros last time I ate here and it was seriously incredible.

Being a Non-Tourist in Chicago

Third time’s the charm because this was the longest I’ve stayed in Chi-town and the most I’ve done and seen while there.

Eats!
The first restaurant I enjoyed during this trip was The Southport Grocery and Cafe. Oh my yum. This is a small cafe and grocer and had incredibly delicious brunch. My friend and I split their bread pudding pancake [must try] and I had a summer squash and kale omelette with mashed potatoes. Seriously such a great meal with so many flavors.

Learning to Code in Paradise

I just got back from an amazing 10-day coding retreat in Sayulita, Mexico with The Institute of Code. Institute of Code hosts all-inclusive retreats with the aim to teach students how to code and they definitely succeed in doing so.
There is a method to IOC’s madness because they take care of everything so you can focus on learning. When I say everything, I mean it. We had three meals a day plus lots of snacks and everything was so yummy and healthy.

64 Hours in Dallas, Texas

Meeting my mom in Dallas at the tail end of her work conference definitely had its perks. I was able to be her guest at her last work event before getting our weekend started. We went into AT&T Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play and were able to eat, drink, and even play on the field a bit.

Mini “Out West” Trip

When you realize you have 5 days off from school and work what should you do?
The answer is look up flights, book something cheap and go from there. Lucky for me, one of my good friends was able to join on this spontaneous trip.

At our hotel, The Flamingo

We landed in Las Vegas around 10pm and stayed at the Flamingo, which is on the strip.

Hawaii Travels USA

Maui, Hawaii

Maui, Maui, Maui. I absolutely love this island and wish I could have stayed longer. After arriving we stopped at Leoda’s for lunch, which was simple and delicious. We also grabbed a couple pies [yum!] because Thanksgiving was the next day. My favorite was the banana cream pie. After settling in at The Ka’anapali Beach Hotel we set of to see a luau at The Royal Lahaina. This was a ton of fun and made for a great first night on Maui.

The Big Island

Let me start by saying that flying for 10 hours isn’t the most fun, but landing in Hawaii makes it all worth it.
My first flight landed in Honolulu with enough time to grab a bite to eat before the second flight to Kona. The first full day we jumped in the jeep and took off exploring. We started going north around the top of the island stopping at beaches and lookout points.

The Force Awakens at Disney World

When my brother and I decided to go to Disney World during the Christmas holiday we intended to see The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Hollywood Studios because 2015 is the last year they are being shown. What we didn’t realize was that our trip coincided with the release of the new Star Wars movie [Episode VII].

To Ski or Not to Ski?

I recently took a weekend getaway with some friends to Cataloochee, NC. This was my first time hitting slopes that were covered in fake snow instead of real, fresh powder [spoiled, I know].
I am a snowboarder, thanks to my father, but on my last ski trip with my family I decided to ski instead of board. I LOVED it…mostly because I wasn’t constantly falling on my ass, but also because I was able to use two separate feet instead of having them attached as one.
