October 30, 2017

I am constantly running around, exploring and it can be hard to keep track of the places I’ve discovered. There used to be the map feature on Instagram but since that’s been gone it’s been a bit more difficult to remember some of the places I have been to. That’s where the OneScreen app comes in. I love that the app gives me the opportunity to share the places I’ve traveled to with my family, friends, and readers. I’ve shared…

A Quick Stop In Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

October 23, 2017

Santo Domingo was my dream. I loved exploring the Colonial Zone and wandering down the streets that were lined with colorful buildings and houses. The streets were bustling, there were people wandering around, and it was full of life. When you travel to the Southwest Dominican Republic, odds are you’ll be flying in and out of the international airport in Santo Domingo. So the city is a great place to end your trip. I suggest spending two nights in the city…

Five Things To Do In Southwest Dominican Republic

October 16, 2017

There are certain countries that I have traveled to, but I don’t feel as if I have actually seen the country. Dominican Republic was one of those places. That is, until now. I was able to explore the Southwest Dominican Republic for a week and it truly blew me away. It’s nothing like the all inclusive resorts of Punta Cana (a place I have been about six times). Instead, you can explore untouched beaches, encounter wildlife, hike waterfalls, and go on…

two weeks in japan

You could probably spend about a month in Japan and still not get to see everything. The country is filled with so many wonderful places that it’s hard to squeeze them all in. When I visited, I spent two weeks exploring. During those two weeks in Japan I just scratched the surface. In fourteen days I traveled to five different cities. I did touristy things and I wandered around the streets getting lost (which is the best way to see…

Two weeks in Taiwan

October 9, 2017

I just got back from two weeks in Taiwan with the Taiwan Tourism Bureau. And it was a trip that left me feeling a lot of different emotions. I was happy to explore a new country, one that hadn’t been on my radar before this opportunity presented itself. I was also excited to get back to Asia. But, I like to be as real as possible with you. I did feel a bit isolated because of the language barrier and…

One of the first things that I do when I decide on a new destination is figure out whether or not I’m going to get my fill of street art. When I found out I was going to be in Taiwan for two weeks, and Taipei for a large majority of that, I knew I needed to scope it out. I spent hours on google and Pinterest, but unfortunately, I was unable to find much. Luckily, one of my favorite things…

Taiwan has been such a cool place to explore. It’s one of those places that was never really on the top of my bucket list, but I am so glad that I received the opportunity to visit! Thanks to the Taiwan Tourism Board, I hopped on a plane and headed to Taiwan for two weeks. And one of my stops in the country was Hualien. When I first found out I was going to be visiting Taiwan, one of the…
