Travel: America, I Love You

It's no secret that I absolutely love to travel and see the world. I've seen various countries, but I'm still fascinated by the diverse landscape and culture of my very own country. America! This country really is such a beautiful and amazing place. I love that you can find such a variety of different foods, lifestyles, traditions, and places to explore. All of this exists without even leaving the country. Amazing!

{ not only do I just love to travel, but I love spending time in airports almost as much }

It's without being said that many of my favorite blog posts involve our travels.
Here are a few of my favorite posts. I dug these up from the archives just for you!

Soul Stirring Utah : If I've ever felt moved by the land, it was during our drive across the state of Utah. Just about every square inch of Utah is photograph worthy. It was breathtaking, and maybe someday we'll even get to ski/snowboard it. That would make my year.

Oh Dam It: Hoover Dam Tour : I never thought I'd be so interested in learning about electricity and so many million cubic yards of concrete. It blows me away to think this masterpiece of engineering was built without the modern technologies we use today for construction. Plus it's funny to tell people you drove across that dam road.

The Stanley Hotel | Haunted Travels : I absolutely hate scary movies, but boy do I love a good ghost story. You'll hear plenty of ghost stories if you take the ghost tour at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. We thoroughly enjoyed walking the halls of the hotel that inspired Stephen King to write The Shining. It was so creepy and fun!

These are some of my favorite posts!
I hope you enjoy them too.


  1. haha I thought I was the only crazy one that liked airports!

    Love seeing your travel posts!

  2. I love Estes Park! And I love love love love love airports!

  3. Looks like I am not alone in this! I was just going to comment that it was nice to know someone understood my love of airports and I see the comments already here. People look at my like I'm cray when I tell them that I kind of like layovers and sometimes even prefer them (esp. when I am on the way home)!

  4. I know that first picture really well. DTW. I have spent much time there going to Asia. I think it's one of the best if not best airport in the United States.
