Why I’m Excited to Go to Disney World Alone

Why I'm Excited to Go to Disney World Alone

After a successful solo trip to Disneyland this past summer, I have booked a five day stay at the Walt Disney World Resort at the end of February! I couldn’t be more thrilled to revisit my magical, happy place.

I’m particularly excited for this vacation because I have never done Disney World by myself. I’ve always been accompanied by family, friends, and romantic partners in the past. While it is certainly fun to experience the parks with a group, there’s something very special about doing Disney on your own. My last trip to Disneyland really showed me that. Solo travel, in general, can be super fulfilling, and it’s no different with theme parks and resorts.

City Walk: From Grand Central to the West Side

City Walk grand central west side selfcareseason

Welcome to my first City Walk blog! My favorite way to get around in New York City is by taking long walks, so I’ve decided to share some of my routes/urban trails in blog form since some of my followers requested it.

City Walks can be great for tourists looking to experience NYC from a more residential perspective or for city dwellers trying to gain a new appreciation of their area while exercising more. Try this one or other upcoming ones the next time you’re in the city and share you experiences with me in the comments! Just be sure to wear comfy shoes and stay hydrated.

Alright, now onto this lovely and very doable walk from Grand Central, through Central Park, and to the West Side.

Skip That do this instead paris france selfcareseason

I had an amazing time in Paris this past March. This was my second time in the city of lights and love, and I really got to soak in and learn the city over the nine days I was there. C’était magnifique!

Like any popular travel destination, some of the sites in Paris provide a better experience than others. I shaped my itinerary around what I liked and didn’t on my previous trip. The result was seeing more, waiting less, and generally avoiding big crowds: all travel wins!

I hope you can use these tips to make your next Parisian vacation magical. Here’s my list of five activities to skip in and around Paris, France, particularly if your time is limited to a few days, and what you should check out instead.

My Whimsical Stay at the Madonna Inn

My Whimsical Stay at theMadonna Inn

In the midst of planning for my solo California trip, I decided to book a hotel to break-up my drive from Disneyland in Anaheim to San Francisco. I’m so happy I stumbled upon the Madonna Inn in my search. It ended up being a major highlight of my trip.

The Madonna Inn was constructed for just that purpose: to create a place to stop in the otherwise rural Central California town of San Luis Obispo. It opened its’ doors in 1958 with twelve rooms.
