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

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.

A Louisiana Swamp Tour with Cajun Encounters
There are many companies to choose from, but I went with Cajun Encounters. They are located north of New Orleans, in Slidell. They and several other swamp tour companies offer convenient pick-up from your hotel or a specified location in New Orleans so you don’t have to drive. It usually doubles the price of the tour but it’s still way cheaper than renting a car just for the drive.
When you get there and get on the … Continue reading

The USA’s Oldest City, St Augustine – Things to Do & Travel Guide
My family has driven through St. Augustine several times on our drives down to Orlando. Sadly, my unadventurous parents think that driving through a town is the equivalent of seeing it. When we went down for Thanksgiving, I conquered one of my travelling fears and rented a car so I could go out to St. Augustine and finally get to see the city.
History of St Augustine
St. Augustine has a history much unlike other US cities. Though it belonged to the Native Americans for about 3000 years before, including the Timucua, the history that’s most known about comes … Continue reading
