I’ve been to a few theme parks in my day, and one thing I know is they are a lot like travel. You might lose a hairband, you might get sick, and you’ll probably be hungry. Today I’ve partnered with Kia Motors and Six Flags to share my best tips for how to survive a theme park, from planning ahead, to packing, to finding ways to make the park seem less crowded.
Lately I’ve been taking a lot of shorter trips, so much so that it’s made me come to realize I might not need to bring my usual carry-on hard-side suitcase. I’ve been opting for a much softer option in the form of a weekender, and packing it is a little different than I pack my carryon. Like packing for a weekend trip, today I’ve partnered with Lo & Sons to share some short and sweet tips for packing a weekender bag.

I think it’s time for me to address an issue that has plagued me for my whole life, my dairy allergy. Growing up I was lactose intolerant but still ate diary because some foods are just worth the pain. As I’ve grown older, my intolerance has turned into a severe allergy which I unfortunately had the pleasure of learning the hard way. I never realized how much it would effect my ability to eat and travel (and eat while I travel) until I had to actually deal with it. Today I’m sharing some of my best tips and tricks for how to travel with a food allergy (and still enjoy yourself).
It might sound weird to combine the phrases slow travel and exploring with intention, but hear me out. When we went on our action-packed trip to Paris we planned to do all the things. All. The. Things. The first four days were non-stop, filled with touristy things and putting more miles on my walking shoes than I have in the last couple of years. It was extremely exciting, but it was also extremely exhausting. Today I’m sharing with you a little lesson that I had to remind myself of on this trip, enjoy slow travel.
