As someone who was born and raised in the Bluegrass State, I have always loved my home here. As much as I love it, I've come to realize how underrated this region is, and how much there is to do here that is relatively unknown. You could spend forever adventuring around Kentucky and never run out of activities. I might be a little biased, but this state is one of the best places around.
A new year means new travel plans! I've been trying to put together a few trips for the upcoming year with family, friends, and Michael. We went big last year (I mean... Scotland!) so we're going to turn it down a little this year, save some money, and stick to this side of the pond. But you know what that means - next year we're going big! Right now, only one of our hopeful endeavors is absolutely happening, but I'm going to do my best to follow through on all of them.
Our last stop during our time in Scotland was in the legendary St. Andrews. In the past couple of years, Michael has gotten really into golf so when we decided to go to Scotland, visiting St. Andrews was a no-brainer. Walking the Old Course was Michael's one big request for the trip so we immediately booked the tickets and incorporated it into our planning.
New travel destinations have been on my mind since we got back from Scotland in August. Since we got back, I've been brainstorming locations that are more affordable, and I've also been thinking on how to make our next trip even more of a money-saver than Scotland. It's no joke that travel costs money, but there's a stigma that says hey, you've gotta be rich to travel, but that's not always the case. Earlier in the year I wrote a post on how I save money in order to travel here; saving money on travel expenses before and during your trip is super important. Here are a couple of tricks + tips I've been implementing to make my next trip a reality.
Just a quick post today, guys. I know I'm winding down Scotland posts, but I wanted to share our trip to Eilean Donan Castle just south of the Isle of Skye. Eilean Donan is Scotland's most photographed castle, and from the outside it's not hard to see why: its stunning location.
The holidays are rolling around and the question that's always on everyone's minds is "What do I get for my family?" I've put together some ideas specific to different family members starting with The Traveler.
Did y'all know I love Scotland? Winding down the Scotland posts today with our second to last stop on our whirlwind road trip. Inverness is actually the northernmost city in Britain and is considered the capital of the Highlands of Scotland. The city itself exudes Scottish heritage with cobblestone streets, quaint shops, and old architecture. Outside of the city, however, is where the good stuff is.
