An Attitude of (Travel) Gratitude

As I sit back and think of my life, my journey, and all the things that have led up to this very moment, all I can do is give thanks. I'm very aware that I live an amazing life and I do not take any of it for granted. Any of it. Things always look great when we…

Solo Travel Over Everything!

About 75% (or maybe more) of the trips I take annually are solo trips. I remember my official trip out of the country by myself was in 2015, when I went to Barbados for 5 days.  I'm not going to lie, I wasn't too nervous to go alone, because I've always the type of person to do things by…

Copenhagen, Day 1 (VIDEO CLIPS INCLUDED)

Denmark is never a place I thought about visiting or had the desire to, in all honesty. However, when the travel gods start working their magic and show you all the different possibilities on how to get your butt home for the cheapest way, you take heed. I chose to spend the last leg of…

My Time in Stockholm

When I arrived in Stockholm it was early Christmas morning. After the long flight across the Atlantic, I was bit lethargic but after getting through the airport rigamarole, the sleepiness evaded me when it hit me that I actually made it to this foreign place. The "Arlanda Express" takes you from the airport to Stockholm…
