5 Things You Must See in Mexico City

In Mexico, North America by KatelynLeave a Comment

Situated in the Valley of Mexico at over 7,000 feet, Mexico City is the 5th most populated city in the world with over 17 million people. The city is overwhelming to say the least. The noise.

In Hipmunk, United States by KatelynLeave a Comment

I haven’t been to Georgia yet. It’s a bit surprising since I have friends that live in Atlanta, it’s the center of the Public Health world, and my all-time favorite book is Gone with the Wind. Why haven’t I been to Georgia yet?! Georgia is a state with a deep-rooted history. It’s famous for its historic plantations, peaches, and it’s …

I decided to spent my first two nights in Mexico City at the Mexico City Hostel. It met both my requirements and its location was perfect for exploring the historic …

Climbing the Pyramid of the Sun with Urban Adventures: Teotihuacan Tours

In Mexico by KatelynLeave a Comment

Just 48 kilometers outside of Mexico City lies one of Mesoamerica’s greatest mysteries – the ancient city of Teotihuacan. At its height, Teotihuacan was the largest city in the pre-Columbian Americas with a diverse population of over 125,000 people. If you’re like me, you probably think that Teotihuacan is just about Mayan ruin as they are heavily scattered through Mexico, …

In Maine, Travel by Katelyn4 Comments

Dear Maine, Goodbye Maine…. It’s not you. It’s me. I know, I know. That’s a totally overused excuse. But, you truly are amazing. I feel extremely blessed to have been born and raised in such a beautiful state. From your dramatic rocky coastlines to pine-covered mountain peaks to quiet lakes surrounded by small camps that have been in families for generations, …

Hipmunk Hotels: California Dreaming

In California, Hipmunk by KatelynLeave a Comment

California – the land of promise for thousands of people. To be honest California has never really interested me. I could care less about the Hollywood lifestyle. I’d much rather enjoy the outdoors smog and botox free. But, recently California has peaked my interest. My youngest sister recently moved to Orange, California for pharmacy school and now that I have …

2015 was a great year for me in terms of travel. My travels brought me to two continents, seven new countries and many new cities. While I love new stamps in my passport (which I also had to get a new one once I got home from Europe in June), travel isn’t about how many countries I can cramp into …

As 2015 comes to a fast close (where did the year go?), I’ve begun my annual reflection of the year.

5 Reasons Maine is the Best State

In Maine, Portland by Katelyn6 Comments

The following post was written by me and brought to you by Domain.ME, who I teamed up with for their #StateofME campaign. Hands down, Maine is the best state. Where else can you get cheap lobster, dramatic coastline, serene mountains, and L.L. Bean boots? Of course, I’m slightly biased. I’m a born and raised Mainer. As I’m about to embark …
