The summer after I graduated high school, I visited the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park, some of the most beautiful places in the world. I’m a very athletic person, so I loved all of the hiking and sightseeing in the area. Plus, it is a great way to unplug and take in nature away from the big city. I would go back in a heartbeat.
I went to Italy in June 2023, and it was, without a doubt, the most incredible trip of my life. I spent time in Rome, Sorrento with day trips to Capri and Positano, and ended the trip visiting cities in Tuscany. I’ve never loved a country more. The history is spectacular. And the food was absolutely incredible.
On My Bucket List
The Mamma Mia super-fan in me craves a life-changing trip to Greece. I also think Santa Fe, New Mexico has a lot to offer, and I’d love to spend a weekend there taking in the incredible sights and food.
Go with the flow. I enjoy the escapism that comes with leaving home, so I aim to be relaxed but also stimulated as I embark on new adventures.
