Scenic Route Travels


The skies have cleared after yesterday’s unexpected slush and snow storm here in Boston, and with the sun making an appearance its been a little easier to imagine spring arriving any day now. And with the new season comes plenty of daydreaming and wanderlusting, so I thought I’d jot a few of my latest dream adventures down! 4. Attend Loi Krathong, or the “Festival of Lights” in Thailand. Alright, I may have seen Tangled… Read More

I knew that St Patrick’s day would be big here, but until I pressed my way onto the T, I don’t think I fully understood the magnitude. Pressed in too tight for any notion of personal space, we clung to strangers in attempt to stay upright and fiercely determined to make our way to Southie.  But it was all pretty worth it to be apart of this green mob of college students and families, braving the 30-something degree… Read More

Colorado was everything I needed in a spring break: Blue skies, fresh powder, and a constant cycle of eat, sleep, hottub, repeat. Returning to Boston, it felt like I had been gone for months. The grey skies and getting back into a busy schedule took a bit of adjustment, but after a week of recharging in the rockies, being back in flow of things feels good.

I’m always fascinated by stopping to think about what my life was like a year ago today. Without fail, I am bewildered and inspired. So much has changed! People I had no idea existed a year ago are a big part of my life now. I’ve been to Vienna, Budapest, London, Athens, Rome, and all over Ireland. I became completely at home in Dublin’s cobbled streets and crowded bars. And then I left… Read More

Making a Bucket List is that one daunting task that I have been putting off for way too long. And I realized today why exactly that is; it would be absurd to try and condense the constant flow of ideas and adventures I find into a reasonable list of unrivaled ideas.  Literally undoable. I fill every crevice of my notebooks, Pinterest boards, dashboard stickies, whatever, with unending bookmarks of websites, photographs, destinations, and experiences. It’s a little ridiculous,… Read More

Found this stunning video by Lea et Nicolas Features on Vimeo today, and I am so very eager for it to be July already so I can experience Iceland for myself!

“I was born lost and take no pleasure in being found.” — John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley: In Search of America An expedition towards Cambridge got me and my roommate gloriously lost, but all’s well that ends in Toscanini’s devine ice cream and some good exploring!

Blogging about Bali the other day reminded me of one of my favorite travel adventures of all time; a spontaneous trip with my family sailing through the Indonesian Archipelago. Last summer I spent a month or so lazing around at home in Borneo with my parents and two brothers, the days a happy blur of reading by the pool and watching the entirety of the first two seasons of Game of Thrones (so addicting). And… Read More
