Oz Through Sara’s Eyes: Queenstown, New Zealand

On today’s episode of me sorrowfully yearning to be back in the land down under, I take you to Queenstown, New Zealand. I had no idea I would be so moved by this energetic city, but between the extremely kind people, breathtaking views and endless list of adrenaline-pumping activities, a piece of my heart lives… Continue reading Oz Through Sara’s Eyes: Queenstown, New Zealand

Oz Through Sara’s Eyes: Sydney and Cairns

During my semester in Australia, I was lucky enough to have my best friend and traveling partner visit me for a week with one of his best friends. Per usual, we made the fullest of our time and explored three cities: Sydney, Cairns and Queenstown, New Zealand. Some of our adventures took us up a… Continue reading Oz Through Sara’s Eyes: Sydney and Cairns

Phun in Philadelphia

I underrated Philadelphia as a kid. I decided it was old, small and dull. It wasn’t a “real” city (AKA not New York). However, over the last few years, I have really grown to love Philly and visit every chance I get. I made it to the City of Brotherly Love twice in one week… Continue reading Phun in Philadelphia

Frisco, Colorado Day 4: Reflecting on the Trip

How does one spend the last day of a ski trip? Ripping it, of course. My dad, grandfather, uncle, cousin and I headed to Keystone Mountain Sunday morning with much excitement due to the bright blue skies and sun shining over us. If we could have combined Sunday’s weather with the snow conditions of the… Continue reading Frisco, Colorado Day 4: Reflecting on the Trip

Frisco, Colorado Day 3: Family Fun

Day three of skiing brought more amazing conditions, but best of all, it brought my family! I was super thrilled to be on the mountain Saturday with not just my father and grandfather, but also my aunt, uncle and two cousins who are Colorado natives. The day was bound to be interesting because my whole… Continue reading Frisco, Colorado Day 3: Family Fun

Frisco, Colorado Day 2: Skiing in a Snow Globe

Day two of skiing gave some of the best conditions I’ve had (I definitely said that last year). Similarly to my second day of skiing at Park City, I thoroughly enjoyed my second day in Colorado at Keystone Mountain. I walked outside Thursday morning surprised to see about five inches of snow on the ground… Continue reading Frisco, Colorado Day 2: Skiing in a Snow Globe

Frisco, Colorado Day 1: Fluffy Snow with a Hint of Sun

When my father and I went to Park City last year, we stayed at one resort the whole time. However, in Frisco, Colorado, we do quite the opposite. In fact, we do not even ski in Frisco. We just stay here at the sweetest little inn called the Frisco Lodge. When in Colorado, we go… Continue reading Frisco, Colorado Day 1: Fluffy Snow with a Hint of Sun

Hello Colorado: Thoughts on an Airplane

The last time I was on a plane, I was curled up in a ball with tears spewing out of my eyes, drenching my cheeks. I was leaving Australia and coming back from my alternate universe, which I have now come to call it. I’ll admit I was not too excited to be on a… Continue reading Hello Colorado: Thoughts on an Airplane

Lake George: Good Eats

The only thing that motivated me through the whirlwind of September was my weekend getaway to Lake George at the end of the month. It was an extra special trip because my mom and step-dad let me come along with them and helped me surprise my grandparents and aunt. The astonishment on their faces when… Continue reading Lake George: Good Eats

1 Year of Whitmanythoughts

A few days ago, a sweet little memory popped up on Facebook: my first blog post on Whitmanythoughts. I cannot believe it has been a year since I started writing about my travels. I feel like I have written so much, yet have so much more to share. I have expressed over and over again… Continue reading 1 Year of Whitmanythoughts
