I grew up in rural Michigan, and have called Boston home for 6 years. I love to travel, and some highlights of trips include Japan, Brazil, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and a summer-long road trip across the U.S. My friends and family call me a free spirit, and my wanderlust is constant. Always looking for the next adventure!

Boston is great anytime of the year! The museum of science is also a fun spot if you want to get out of the cold for a while. If they are running, I personally think it is worth paying for the guided freedom trail. I've done it both ways with visitors, and you definitely... See More
If you enjoy hiking, there are no shortages of beautiful destinations! Some of my favorites were Devil's Bridge Trail which leads to a beautiful natural bridge (see attached photo) as well as Fay Canyon Trail. I would also highly... See More
I am traveling to Sedona, AZ for the first time next week, and would love some insider advice. I am looking to spend most of my time outside (no shopping/restaurants) hiking and exploring, and would love suggestions for less-traveled hiking trails and lakes/streams/rivers... See More
