New Orleans Through the Eyes of a Foodie

New Orleans Through the Eyes of a Foodie

When you think of New Orleans, what comes to mind? Mardi Gras? Jazz? French Quarter? Voodoo? All of the above of course! Now, after being there and experience it first hand, the first word that comes to mind for me is food! New Orleans is teeming with different cultures, and each of those cultures brings their own traditional meals. There are some must-haves well known meals, and plenty of new places with new culinary ventures. We tried to get a…

The Airbnb Spectrum – NOLA Edition

The Airbnb Spectrum – NOLA Edition

I would just like to disclaimer this by saying I’ve been so lucky to have great experiences with all the places I’ve stayed on Airbnb. Some you get what you paid for, others go above and beyond, and the two Airbnbs we chose in New Orleans proved just that. Cheap is not always the best route… Traveling with a large group of girls is not always easy to coordinate or find accommodations large enough. However when we stumbled upon this…

Life Update!

Life Update!

Here we are, another unplanned hiatus and another quick life update post in order! Last you heard from me, I had just come back from our amazing trip to New Orleans with some great friends! Before this festive and exhausting trip, I had begun the process of searching for a new job. As you may know, I had been an Interior Design at Phase Zero Design for over 5 years. Although I do not take my time at PZD for…

The Bourbon Street, Mardi Gras Survival Guide!

The Bourbon Street, Mardi Gras Survival Guide!

When planning a trip to New Orleans, it is standard that you will probably somehow at some point end up on Bourbon Street. We had specifically planned our trip to catch only the LAST day of the Mardi Gras season, and then having several days to explore New Orleans without the mayhem. I recommend this, but maybe come in one day earlier than we did to catch a couple more of the big parades!

Must-see Waterfalls of the Finger Lakes

Must-see Waterfalls of the Finger Lakes

I had the opportunity to go to the Finger Lakes twice last year and both times I was pleasantly surprised by how scenic the entire area was. Between sprawling lake views, beautiful vineyards, and waterfalls, this region does not disappoint. I’ve compiled a list of can’t-miss scenic spots in The Finger Lakes to help plan your trip!

Airbnb Serendipity: Finger Lakes Region

Airbnb Serendipity: Finger Lakes Region

So travel isn’t all smooth sailing, relaxation and pretty Instagram photos, sometimes things don’t quite go to plan at all. Now the story I’m about to tell you isn’t quite an “Airbnb horror story” (though according to my mother it is)… it’s more of a story of everything happens for a reason. All Planned Out Right around this time last year, my friend Brianna and I decided to take a spontaneous winter trip somewhere. The Finger Lakes region in Upstate…

Iceland Itinerary: The Uncommon Route

Iceland Itinerary: The Uncommon Route

Hey friends! I’m back! Life got weird, and I needed to take a step back from KristinInMotion for a moment. But a trip to Iceland and a media detox later, I’m rejuvenated, re-inspired, and ready to get back into it. First on the docket: Iceland Itinerary Guide! So when most people think of Iceland, they think of a trip around the Ring Road, also known as Route 1. However, it is recommended to have at least 10 days to really…

Adventure Diary: Burlington Birthday Brew Bash

Adventure Diary: Burlington Birthday Brew Bash

First adventure of the 2019 year was one for the record books! My 28th birthday conveniently fell on a Sunday this year, so what better way to celebrate than by planning a trip! This year, myself and 7 of my favorite people rented an Airbnb in Burlington, Vermont and treated ourselves to a long weekend filled with food, beer and laughs.

Airbnb Highlight: Vineyard Villas

Airbnb Highlight: Vineyard Villas

I’m a big fan of Airbnb for a multitude of reasons! I’ve stayed in In-Law Apartments, converted basements, entire apartments, standalone homes, and even private rooms in someone’s home. I love that you can feel like you’re at home while traveling, I love meeting locals and getting their advice for the area and I LOVE the freedom of being able to cook to save money! I tend to spend a lot of time researching areas and reading reviews before I…

Strolling the Watkins Glen Gorge

Strolling the Watkins Glen Gorge

January is the perfect time for me to catch up on old blog posts, and for you to start planning your 2019 travels! Last year I had the privileged of exploring the Finger Lake region in Upstate New York TWICE! Both trips were different and each had their own highlights. In Upstate New York, at the southern tip of Lake Seneca, you will find the small town of Watkins Glen, NY. Mostly known for its winding Nascar Speedway, Watkins Glen…
