2015 was a huge year for me! I officially left the corporate world behind and took off on this crazy adventure of starting my own travel blog and my own business, and had so much fun along the way.
As I look forward to leaving on my round-the-world trip on Thursday, I found myself thinking back to all the amazing memories I made in 2015, and some of my very favorite travel moments. Here’s a roundup from my Instagram!
Drinking wine and spending time in Napa Valley.
Drinking more wine in Napa Valley…
Taking a day off of work for this amazing photo shoot with Cindy Loughridge in San Francisco.
Road tripping down the California Coast and spotting this view at McWay Falls.
Getting up to some trouble at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with my best friend.
Embarking on my first solo road trip through a few U.S. National Parks.
This view from one of my favorite hikes at Zion National Park.
And also THIS VIEW from a hike at Bryce Canyon National Park.
Finally setting eyes on Old Faithful and the amazing geysers at Yellowstone National Park.
Horseback riding through the mountains in Aspen, Colorado
Nearly dying to get the perfect road trip shot on the road from Colorado to Arizona.
Setting eyes on New York City for the first time.
Touristy, yes, but I loved exploring Times Square at night…
…and had a hard time saying goodbye to the city that captured my heart.
But I’ll be back there again someday. Just try and keep me away!
