Walnut Canyon National Monument.

So to start off, I'm going to tell everyone something about this place that nobody told us: IT’S INSANELY WINDY. You really have nooo clue what is about to hit you as you park and walk to the front doors of the entrance/visiting center. It's not windy at all up there. Not even a little …

Horseshoe Bend: Incredible and Magnificent.

A true marvel of nature’s power and one of the most beautiful natural sights I’ve ever seen, Horseshoe Bend is one of my all-time favorite places - ever 😍. While there is not much to do other than gaze at the insane product of millions of years of nature’s ingenuity, it’s well worth a trip. …

Plymouth Rock: The Landing Spot of the Pilgrims (allegedly).

Honestly, Plymouth is delightful! It's (obviously) located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, inside Pilgrim Memorial State Park. Plymouth Rock is definitely the main attraction of the area, and it is located right alongside the beach. It’s in a surprisingly tranquil and scenic location, given the hustle and bustle of the East Coast we had previously experienced, and …

Grafton, Utah: “The most photographed ghost town in the West”.

The expansive Utahan desert, right outside of Grafton. Tucked down a bumpy, 3-mile partial dirt road, sits a little known and extremely cool ghost town. Located in the southwestern corner of Utah, not a soul lives in this completely deserted place, which is probably very creepy at night (there are ranch homes nearby, but nobody …

Berlin, Germany: A Quick Trip to the Fatherland.

***Just like in my Helsinki blog (Helsinki, Finland: “The Pearl of the Baltic Sea”.), my fashion sense during this period of my life was horrendous. I'm well aware LOL.*** 🥲 I always wanted to visit Germany, as my mother’s entire side of the family hails from there. I am a 3rd generation American on my …

Salem, Massachusetts: Welcome to 1692.

By far one of the most iconic towns in the U.S.A., Salem, Massachusetts played a pivotal role in America’s story. Of course, I’m talking about the famous Salem Witch Trials, a dark stain on our history. The witch trials were when mass hysteria took over, leading to very little thought and extremely irrational behavior. Between …

Savannah, Georgia: Cemeteries and Squares.

I've dreamed of visiting the historic city of Savannah for years. It’s considered by the paranormal community to be a mecca for ghosts and one of the most haunted cities in the U.S., if not the most haunted city. It’s older than the United States itself (records start in 1733), after Georgia was named the …

West Virginia: The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.

Considered to be a holy grail for ghost hunting in paranormal circles, the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is as haunted as it is historic. We visited this epic beast on the last day of our 2019 East Coast road trip (Epic East Coast Road Trip. - you will find a section about this former insane asylum …

Cadillac Ranch: The Stonehenge of Texas.

An iconic roadside stop just outside of Amarillo, Texas, Cadillac Ranch is worth the stop. We visited during our 2021 cross-country road trip to move my friend out to Arizona. I’ve passed by this place two times prior and I wasn’t going to miss it a third time. For those unaware of what the heck …

Helsinki, Finland: “The Pearl of the Baltic Sea”.

While Helsinki and Finland are lovely, with friendly people and charming historical sights, truthfully, it was my least favorite city/country duo that we visited. It was not because of the people, how we were treated, or even Helsinki itself, but compared to London, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Edinburgh, all of Norway, etc..., Helsinki felt just a …
