Banff, Alberta, Canada
Say what? Where is that? Just outside of Calgary in the province of Alberta within the beautiful and wildly gigantic Canada. Literally booked a trip to see if those turquoise waters were real life.

Coastal Maine Road Trip. In fall.
A little secret from Maine-ers themselves, Maine during the autumn months is unrivaled. Sure, those who are born and raised there are quick to tell you that their home is quite superb, perhaps the most superb, but from everyone I came across, they said it with humbled appreciation. And like most people I know, I absolutely adore fall. So it made sense that on a rainy New York Monday, I made arrangements for a solo road trip up the coast of Maine.
Oregon: 4-Day Road Trip Guide!
I’m not sure when my love affair began but it did, in full. I booked a trip out west, rented a car in Portland, and spent four days on the road finally exploring and finding the fruits of my google image stalking labor.

So I set off to experience this province and filled in my gaps in knowledge along the way.
