Aside from the obvious packing skills, the portable chargers, the overstuffed backpacks, the camera gear and the constantly referenced abilities to compromise or go with the flow, theres 1 thing in particular that jumps out at me as to why the past 3 months have worked (and occasionally not worked) so well.

Despite nearly 3 million Americans writing in to their government to oppose the roll back on two National Monuments in Utah, President Trump still decided to move forward with his decision to cut back the acreage of Bears Ears National Monument and Grand Staircase-Escalante by a whopping 85 and 50%, respectively, to “make way for local industry”. Large pieces of these Monuments will be cut away, including coal-rich portions of the Kaiparowits… Read More

A few weeks ago, Shelby and I went to explore the Tegalalang rice terraces outside of Ubud. Easily one of the most iconic spots in the area, the picturesque terraces and morning light made for some of the most unique landscapes either one of us had ever seen. Despite going on a Sunday, the fields were relatively empty and at times it felt like we had the place to ourselves. With the camera and the drone already fired up to take a few photos, I decided it would be the perfect spot to try my hand at a quick, experiential travel video

Healthy and delicious food is not hard to come by in Ubud, I could literally try a new cafe each day and still not run out of options, however I thought I would share the places that have gotten me to come back for more…some several times. 1. KAFE Vegetarian and paleo friendly, this spot has healthy options for every diet as well as delicious smoothies and healthful elixirs. I made several… Read More

Ceremonial grade cacao is highly concentrated and if you drink enough, it can produce a high/euphoric state from the feel good amino acids theorbromine and phenethylamine. Euphoric and relaxed but alert state with no hangover in the morning? Finally something I can get behind.

This is probably counterintuitive to most people’s thought process, but I am not discouraged from traveling when tragic events like this happen around the world. In many ways, I’m actually motivated to travel more.

How do we manage the expectations of the holidays and not being able to spend them with my friends and family while we’re traveling?

The honest answer is that it’s not always easy. I’d love to be hanging out with my parents and our dogs while I dive face first into a bowl/open-faced sandwich of leftovers and hopefully watch the Cowboys get stomped by whoever they’re playing this year. 

I’m the girl that prioritizes fish oil supplements and Green veggie powder over makeup and a hair iron in my limited packing space when traveling. A steady health and wellness routine, especially when on the road, is important because it keeps you grounded and maintains your body’s natural rhythms. There are a few essential products I use day in and day out to maintain my mental and physical wellbeing, I always find… Read More

1. Tsukamen Noodles These noodles are currently our new favorite food, we went back for the same exact dinner two nights in a row. Tsukamen noodles are similar to ramen noodles but a bit thicker and more gooey. They are served in a bowl by themselves and you are given a separate bowl with your broth and various other toppings (ours included pulled pork, mushrooms, green onions, seaweed and a soft boiled… Read More
