Seek Out Adventure

Two years ago, I quit my job and booked a one-way ticket to California. At 23, I had never been to the West Coast and was excited about my first solo travel adventure.

I needed a fresh breath of air and this trip provided so much more than that.

New experiences, friends, and memories to last a lifetime.

TBT: That time I went to Utah…

In honor of Best Friends Day, I’m reposting this! Best Friends Animal Society is an incredible organization! Today would’ve also been my first dog Sammy’s 17th birthday!

Back in 2013, I was a senior at Northeastern and decided to use my last spring break to do some good. I signed up for Northeastern’s Alternative Spring Break program where students spend the week volunteering at one of many participating organizations. I, being the animal lover that I am, opted for the program at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. It was an amazing week; spending time with the animals, exploring the Coral Pink Sand Dunes and Zion National Park, and getting to know new people from my school – ah, so fun! It was unlike any place I’ve ever been and, at the time, it was the farthest West I’d ever traveled. 531518_10152668392960118_1419418716_n531555_10152668393230118_1157599316_n313808_10152668393915118_82020514_n537564_10152668394880118_438560448_n602787_10152668395855118_1634239435_n482809_10152668392875118_1483484582_n1696_10152668394325118_2145519080_n559669_10152668395220118_181811803_n537475_10152668394895118_1412887369_n26327_10200838288743046_1352955968_n580447_4771189003315_1906962984_n

Donut Judge Me

In honor of National Donut Day!

IMG_3398 The “Voodoo Doll” doughnut filled with jelly!

Portland, OR, is a wonderful city with superb donuts. While most have heard of Voodoo Doughnut (a quirky doughnut shop based in Portland), y’all may not know about Blue Star Donuts. I took a train from Seattle to Portland and made a beeline to Voodoo, luggage and all. Hopped in an Uber afterwards and when the driver saw me with my box of Voodoo deliciousness he goes, “You know it’s funny. Voodoo doughnuts always has a line and everything but they’re not even the best doughnuts in Portland. Blue Star is where it’s at.” Oh okay then…

…So I tried both. And both places were delicious.

And I can’t choose a favorite.

If you’re ever in Portland, try both and you shall not be disappointed.

HUGS AND KISSES TO PORTLAND. KEEP ON BEING WEIRD AND AWESOME!
