Savannah, GA: the Charming Belle of the South – Things to Do & Travel Guide
I’ve driven through Savannah a few times and even though my experience was really weird (woman walking a cat on the highway while wearing heels weird), I was eager to go back and really get to know the city. Considering my initial experience, I found that there was a lot I didn’t know about Savannah and it’s a really great place to visit!
Savannah as we know it was founded in 1733 by General James Oglethorpe (a name still huge there today). Its location was chosen as a buffer between the English colonies up north and the Spanish … Continue reading

A Local’s Travel Guide to Baltimore, MD (Things to Do & More)
Baltimore is Maryland’s largest city and it’s filled with history and fame. A lot of people confuse it for being the capital of Maryland, which it isn’t, but it’s nonetheless a great place to spend a day or two for travellers and an awesome day trip from DC. Every building is so beautifully crafted and the entire city sits on its original streets, making it feel as it must have been a century or two ago. Add in delicious food and a passion for the sports teams and it’s a very cultured place. I love this place so much that … Continue reading

Blown Away by Beautiful Chicago – Things to Do & Travel Guide
Chicago, Windy City, Chi-Town. Undoubtedly Chicago is one of the most landmark cities in America. Known for sports and hot dogs, you can’t possibly take a modern architecture class without learning about Chicago and its impact on architecture: the skyscraper. If you’ve taken an art class, you’ve probably also heard of the Art Institute of Chicago, which has notable artworks. That is basically all I knew about Chi-Town when I set off for my social distancing trip. I did a lot of research on things to do and areas to visit, but there was no real expectation when I went. … Continue reading

Things to Do & See in Annapolis, MD: a Local’s Travel Guide
Annapolis is the capitol city of my home state, Maryland, and its old town location on the Chesapeake bay is incredibly charming. I got to spend a lot more time here after graduating from college and moving on from DC, so what as a local do I consider the highlights of “naptown”?
Annapolis and the Maryland region has been inhabited for thousands of years but was also one of the first places colonised by the Europeans. Settled as a colony for decades before, Annapolis became a proper city in 1708. It had been officially “designed” a few years … Continue reading

Following the Stars in Los Angeles & Hollywood – Things to Do & Travel Guide
Los Angeles is debatably the poster child of America. Hollywood culture is one of the ways we’re put on the map. I myself love a good movie and am amazed by what people in the filmmaking industry have been able to create and accomplish. But I had no idea what Los Angeles was like or what to expect when I first visited.
A Brief History of Los Angeles
Los Angeles is actually a lot older than I’d previously thought. The modern city dates to about 1771, when a mission was created in the Spanish territory of southern California. After being … Continue reading

The Colonial City of Williamsburg, VA – Things to Do & Travel Guide
Williamsburg, Virginia has been one of my favourite destinations for a very long time. I’ve gone there several times as a kid and as an adult for various reasons. While a college town, Williamsburg mainly sparks images of people in colonial attire wandering around a centuries-old village. That’s the main part of this post, but I hope to touch on other parts of Williamsburg as well. It’s an excellent place to visit for people of all types.
The History of Williamsburg, VA

7 Charming Towns on Maryland’s Eastern Shore
Maryland’s Eastern Shore is really charming. It’s also an underrated destination since nearby places like Washington DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis shadow its neighbours across the bay. While many flock to Ocean City, there are several smaller places in Maryland that are overlooked. Here’s a list of a few that I felt were very cute.
Some tips for travelling in Eastern Maryland:
- Many places have “headlights always on” laws so it’s best to have your headlights always on.
- Bring bug spray!
- Some places have Amish communities who use horse and buggies to travel around, so watch out for that.
