On the Road

I live a long way from my family and most of my friends, the farthest I've ever been apart from them, actually. So visiting for holidays and special occasions tends to be an event itself. There are plane tickets involved, even the occasional rental car.


But every now and then all the stars align and friends near and far can make a nice, long vacation work!

In August 2015, a group of eight took a Carnival Cruise out of New Orleans to Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico.

Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica-- I was so proud of myself for making it to the top!

It was a week of no emails, no cell service and no worries! Bliss!! Here are some of the photos from that awesome vacation with some of the best travel buddies...


Carnival Cruise 2015


One of the best trips I've ever been on was my first visit to Washington, D.C. I immediately fell in love with the history, architecture, and power of the city! The road trip from Cleveland to D.C. took a fortuitous detour in Pennsylvania when my travel buddy and I spotted the sign for the Flight 93 National Memorial, a stop we had not planned for, but ended up being one of the most emotional of the trip. Enjoy the rest:
