Exploring San Francisco! | California Road Trip Day 1

After waking up at 2:30am to start my long day of traveling I made it to the golden city and met up with my best friends and travel buddies for the next 12 days: Sarah and Myles. Luckily we were able to find flights from our various cities to San Francisco that landed within half…

The California Road Trip

Hi There and Happy New Year! I for one am so happy that 2017 is finally here and I have high hopes that it will be worlds better than 2016 was. I definitely started the year off on a great note as I just got back from the California road trip I did with two of…

Packing for 12 Days in a Carry On!

As I talked about in a recent post, I’m going to be spending the holidays traveling down the California coast in a van with some of my best friends! What I didn’t mention is that I’m going to attempt to squeeze everything I’ll need for the 12 day trip into a carry on suitcase and…

Holiday Cranberry Mimosa Recipe!

Happy Thanksgiving World! I have had such a great day spending time with my parents this Thanksgiving. To get the day started off right, this morning I made the three of us cranberry mimosas and I must say they are my new favorite! They are both inexpensive, super simple to make, and they taste delicious! Ingredients: Champagne…

Countdown to California

I’m writing this on November 21st and that means in exactly one month I’ll be boarding a plane, for the first time in over 5 years, headed for the ultimate California road trip! I can hardly contain my excitement for this trip so I figured I’d talk a little about it before I embark, just to revel…

Hiking at Stone Mountain, Georgia

This weekend consisted of another glorious road trip with my travel buddy Erica! This time we packed up on Friday, since it was Veteran’s day and we were both off work, and headed up to spend the weekend with friends in Atlanta. Erica suggested stopping at Stone Mountain to hike on our way to the…

A Lucky Duck Halloween

This weekend was one for the books! On top of it being Halloween we ended up having nearly all of the OG Lucky Ducks back together for a few days. Chase, Jeinni, Myles and Sarah had all planned trips to come stay with us awhile ago, so I had already been looking forward to seeing…

Universal & Islands of Adventure

This weekend I got to join my roommates/best friends Michael and Kandice on a trip to Orlando to visit the theme parks and stay with Kandice’s best friend from college. We had a couple of bumps in the road and ended up getting to the parks a little late in the day but life’s all about…

Clearwater, St. Petersburg, & Tampa

One of the main reasons I’ve decided to start this blog is because I’ve been getting out of town a lot more recently and have always liked keeping a journal of my travels to look back on. As much as a fan as I am of pen and paper, I think having a digital platform will…

New Ventures

My first post! Hooray! I’ve been toying with the idea of starting both a blog and a YouTube channel for quite awhile now as a way of documenting the vast array of thoughts constantly running through my head, as well as the adventures I try to fill my time with. I decided to name this blog “HanaVentures” because…
