I lived in Fort Worth for four years during college, and each time I go back it reminds me of so many places I have been missing since moving back to Dallas. Fort Worth is laid back, incredibly friendly and has some serious cowboy cooking to choose from. If one thing is for sure, Fort Worth is authentically Texan.
For some reason a lot of people think Dallas and Fort Worth are actually a lot closer to one another than they are. It usually is a 45 minute to an hour drive, so if you are visiting DFW, make sure to schedule some time to see the best of both cities. Here are my personal favorite picks of where to eat, shop and explore in the Fort. READ MORE
If you are new to hiking, there are a few basic things that are nice to invest in before hitting the trail. Now that I have gotten my day hiking routine “perfected,” from previous trips to Italy, New Mexico and Austin; I wanted to share my list of gear that makes day hiking comfortable and fun.
Any essentials I’m missing? I’d love to hear. Just drop me a comment below!
With vacation days being as precious as they are, it is really important to pick the best places to go when spending the time and money to go on a trip. When trying to decide where to go next it often takes the right price, place and timing to figure out what the best options really are.
A new trend that we are seeing in travel is inspirational shopping and booking engines that help you find a destination during the search process. Since price or general timing are integral factors to deciding location, these shopping tools allow for multiple destinations during different time frames to be considered during the search.
Want to look at a few sites that help you decide? When I first started blogging, I wrote a post that highlights a few travel resources that are inspirational and very helpful to browse when you are trying to decide on a location.
The thing that I always find hardest is finding a great place and then actually committing to taking to trip. I’m sure lots of other people do this too; dream about a place for years and then when the opportunity presents itself you start second guessing if it’s the right time. I have found that if most things line up, it means it’s probably time and I have never regretted pulling the trigger to go on an adventure.
** Amongst the Chatter is a place to discuss everyday adventure related topics that have been on my mind or that I have read something about recently. It is also a chance to be a little more serious. I believe that discussing how and why we think the things we do helps us to live and celebrate our best lives.**
Happy Sunday, everyone! Sorry my usual Friday post is a little bit late. This weekend has been full of fun celebrating my roommate’s birthday and catching up with friends. I hope each of you had wonderful and everyday adventure filled weekends.
This week, my adventures included:
+ Watching my sister walk the stage at her college graduation. Couldn’t be more proud or happy for her and it was so much fun to celebrate!
+ Signing for a new townhouse! After about a month of looking, we found something that my two roommates and I will be really excited about and it is in the perfect location.
+ Getting a few summer travel plans brewing. I will be sure to let you all know where I am going as soon as it is final! Up next is hiking in New Mexico for Memorial Weekend, which should be a blast.
** And a few of my favorite travel related links and finds from around the web **
Great thoughts on saying yes to the unknown and being intentional. I think it goes right in line with my post from last week about adventure. - The Everygirl READ MORE
