Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort Review

Last October, my best friend and I took a trip to Jamaica. (By the way, 10/10 would totally recommend traveling with your BFF). It was a pretty spontaneous trip right after I graduated from university. We booked our trip about 3 months in advance, and it ended up being right after Hurricane …

WTF Moments with Mom | Root River Canoeing

The first of many kayaking/canoeing trips this summer has been completed! I initially fell in love with kayaking summer 2016 when my mother dragged me out to Riverbend Nature Center in town. She grew up doing these types of activities; I’m a late bloomer on the other hand. Better late …

The Magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall | Iceland

Since 2014, the Gullfoss Waterfall has been in my top 3 favorite natural landmarks that God has created, narrowly beaten out by the Northern Lights. “Gullfoss” means “golden falls;” this name given because the sediment in the water gives it a golden color when the sun shines on it.
