Hiking Trip Photos Uploaded

This summer has been a big one for hiking trips! It’s taken us to the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and whatever you want to call the hill in Rhode Island. We were able to accomplish our goal of hiking the tallest peak in each state of New England . And we finished a bucket list item of the Presidential Traverse. Check out the albums on Facebook.

Hiking Above the Achensee Lake

Achensee lake was by far, the most memorable place we visited on our epic backpacking trip through Europe. We found this place on google maps, and once we saw a picture of that lake, we knew we had to make it there. Just a short train ride away from Innsbruck, the Achensee region is a getaway for everyone. Our AirBnb sat right at the base of the mountain and overlooked the lake as well. We were able to hike right out the back of our place to the trails. It was an experience I’ll never forget, and honestly can’t wait …

Hike Cerro Chato from La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Less than 24 hours after touching down in Costa Rica, our restless legs were already carrying us up the sister peak of the Arenal Volcano, Cerro Chato or Chato Volcano. Like most of La Fortuna’s visitors, we all make the stop in there to experience the jungles of Costa Rica and everything they can offer, whether that’s hiking, nature walks, zip-lining, or waterfalls. Personally, I hate guided tour groups because they cater to the fat-Americans that come down, and that’s not the speed I like to go on. And hiking the Cerro Chato is the last remaining activity in the …

Seeking Wanderlust | The Journey to Oktoberfest [video]

When you come across the opportunity to cross off a bucket list trip of a lifetime to Oktoberfest, you do everything you can to make it happen. And that’s exactly what happened. I was able to convince 6 of my friends to join me on a partial two-week trip that would start in Amsterdam, head south through Dusseldorf, Cologne, and Frankfurt until we reached the city of Munich for Oktoberfest! But it didn’t end there, we pushed south into the alps to hike the Zugspitze and then ended the trip in the Austrian cities of Innsbruck and Achensee. There were …

Visit Achensee Lake in Tirol, Austria

Simply beautiful. This is one of those places I’ve been, where the words to describe my first view of this place are difficult to formalize. Sounds cliché, and it totally is, but I still stand by my statement. Our taxi driver picked the four of us up from the train station and headed north, towards the mountains. The small towns we passed through were so tight, I barely thought one car could pass through, let alone us and the ones he kept passing. The road began upward from the valley, along these winding mountain roads that

Greatest Nap Of My Life | Iceland

Picture yourself standing on the top of a mountain, in Iceland, surrounded by massive, white-capped peaks to the east, and an endless coastline to the west. For most people this would be the pinnacle of a trip, that beautiful, scenic moment where everyone is staring out in the distance and reminiscing on how incredible the days in that mysterious country have been. However, this was not the case for the four of us. At that moment I just described, we had been traveling for nearly 16 straight hours and had only in Iceland for  about 4 hours. Normal people would …
