ABOUT THIS BLOG

Hi! I’m Lauren. One of my favorite pastimes is planning and going on epic trips. I decided to start this blog as an easy way to share my tips and itineraries with friends and family, and to serve as a resource for others trying to plan a fun adventure! Don’t let having a 9-5 job stop you- learn how to maximize your vacation days to still be able to check things off your bucketlist!

I’ve been taking a break from traveling the past few weeks to enjoy this amazing place I get to call home. Feeling refreshed and re-energized, and ready for another epic adventure coming up next week! .

  • This hidden gem of a cave is quite possibly the most epic place in Sedona. ✨

  • ~Iceland in the fall is the best idea~ .

Seriously though- this is a “hole in the wall” waterfall if I’ve ever seen one. And those colorful leaves!! 😍 if you’re looking for a trip this fall, you should go here. It’s the perfect time to visit because the weather is mild AND there’s a chance you can see the Northern Lights. .

  • This fun little hike requires some steep scrambling up rocks and following cairns to make sure you’re on the trail, but the view at the top is epic AND we had the place to ourselves. On top of all that, it’s known to be one of the best places to feel those magical energy vortexes that Sedona is known for, so of course we had to check it out! 🌀✨

  • Spent the weekend relaxing in wine country and exploring this new area! Who could have guessed that @lanoueeric planned this whole trip himself!? Our little trailer Airbnb on a farm surrounded by a vineyard was SO cool. If you’re looking for a wine getaway that’s chiller than Napa, this is it 🍷 .
