Horseshoe Bend, AZ

When originally planning my trip to Arizona, I knew that the Horseshoe Bend just had to be one of the stops, because I simply feel in love with the place while browsing through Pinterest. Even if we where supposed to fly out of Las Vegas and going to Page would take us way off our…

Antelope Canyon, AZ

One week ago my friend Emma and I did a short (as in two days, definitely not in length) road trip all around the Grand Canyon, USA. Unfortunately, while driving into the South Rim a snow storm struck resulting in that we did not see a single thing. Luckily, prior to that day we stopped…

Memorials in Washington D.C

My favorite part when visiting Washington D.C last week was not only the many free museums and the lovely warm fall weather, but in fact the many memorials that can be found in downtown D.C, also refered to as the National Mall. I’ve, like most people, seen the majority of these sites in the news…

Whale watching in Massachusetts Bay

Back in 2004, my parents took me and my younger brother on a road trip through the most northern parts of Sweden and all the way up to Narvik in Norway. I’ve a lot of great memories from that trip; my brother swimming in the Norwegian Sea and a bunch of porpoise passed next to…

Perfect fall daytrips starting out in the Twin Cities

My favourite season of the year is probably early autumn. I love the fact that the trees are starting to shift in color, that the air is getting cooler making the perfect conditions for wearing knitted sweaters, socks and scarfs. Moreover it gets darker earlier in the day, which invites to tea drinking inside with…

Nashville, TN

One of our detours while driving down the Great River Road in 2015 was a two day stay in Tennessee. One day was spent in Nashville and the other one driving around this beautiful state with a quick stop in Lynchburg – home of Jack Daniels whiskey (separate article will be posted shortly). My dad…

St. Louis, MO – the Gateway to the West

St. Louis was to me a nice surprise when driving down the Great River Road in 2015. To be honest, I didn’t know much about the city and when researching it I couldn’t find any particular landmarks worth a visit, except perhaps the Gateway Arch. Nevertheless, when arriving in July last year I knew from the…

What not to miss in New Orleans, LA

During the end of July 2015, me, my parents and youngest brother took a road trip along the Great River Road starting in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN all the way down to New Orleans, LA. It was an entertaining trip where we passed some great places and cities I’ll write separate articles on, but we all…
