This entry marks the last of my scavenger hunt series. Previously I’ve talked about Stray Boots, Munzees, and local Atlanta hunts that center on landmarks like Oakland Cemetery.

Four months ago, my husband and I went on our honeymoon in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. While there, we went on a hot air balloon ride, which was so much fun! (And that’s saying a lot for someone who is terrified of heights). We just got back from another trip to Colorado, this time for skiing… Read More An out-of-the-box adventure in the heart of Colorado
Ahh, traveling. The iconic “dream life” that so many people aspire to. Personally, I’m a huge fan of cultural immersive traveling – not only does it provide an opportunity for personal growth, but it can also have some surprising health benefits. Over the years, I’ve had many people ask me how I travel as much as I… Read More How to travel without time or money
