This Page is for all you Travelers out there. Below I'll share my story & then I'll fill this page with posts about how you can travel safer and smarter! I've had a love of travel since the very beginning. Growing up, my Mom was always making sure we spent more time and money on experiences rather than material things. We went on so many road trips I've lost count. *cue the 80s playlist now For my high school graduation present my Mom drove me cross country for my next phase of life, college. We started in Washington State and drove all the way to Virginia. It took us just under a week & we joked along the way that we were stopping to smell all the roses. It was one of the best experiences my Mom could have given me. While I was a broke college girl I moved to Florida for a summer job by myself and flew to Costa Rica for my first solo trip! That trip was a total fail. However I learned so much about traveling and myself I wouldn't take it back for anything. After I finished up college I really didn't know what I wanted to do. While I don't use my degree in a literal way, I grew up so much during college and was opened up to so much about the world, culture, and communicating. It made me want to travel even more. So I did what I had always dreamed of - I became a flight attendant. Since becoming a flight attendant in 2017 I have visited all 50 states and gone to 11 countries. I plan to see so much more & to use this blog to both document my travels and help inspire others to travel.

Hotel Travel Hacks – From a Flight Attendant
So I’ve been living out of hotels now for about 3 years, I don’t have much of a choice since I’m a Flight Attendant. That being said, I’ve had to get pretty smart & come up with lots of hotel travel hacks to make myself as comfy and safe as possible away from home. The only thing getting me through my work day is knowing that I have a nice king size bed waiting in a quiet room & the ability to have Doordash deliver guilty pleasure food for me to eat in bed instead of standing in a nasty galley while people bug me. (Want to help me not…

What not to do on an airplane
Just like everywhere else in the world there are people that don’t make any sense or are making their life way more complicated than necessary. In the airline business I like to call them questionable passengers. The following is a list I’ve compiled of the most questionable passengers onboard an airplane and all the odd, confusing and stupid things they do. I’m pretty sure TSA does something to people’s brains when they go through. That or travel is just that stressful for some people. People who travel with soft guitar cases & other soft cases for various expensive instruments and expect them to not get ruined or expect us to…
Let me Introduce Myself
Since you came all the way here I figured I should introduce myself. I’m a lot of things but mostly I’m a flight attendant, a writer, a coffee addict, beer snob, college graduate, girlfriend, bookworm, and a wanderluster. No matter how many crazy stories I write on here, I really do love my job. I am so thankful for all the experiences and friends it’s given me just in the last three years and I hope to fly until I can’t lift my bag into an overhead bin, or maybe even several years after that. For those of you non aviation people, there are flight attendants who only fly one…
