Gnomes And Trolls In Devil’s Punchbowl

Outside of dear little Menomonie, Wisconsin, there is a place rumored to be the home of fairies, gnomes, and trolls.  That is the Devils Punchbowl, a great place for a short visit any time of year, but this visit was in the winter. I've been to the Punchbowl a few time and always enjoy it. …

Explore Gooseberry Falls In The Winter

It was a cold winter Friday (I'm assuming) in Menomonie, Wisconsin, when me and my roommate and two friends decided to drive up to Duluth, Minnesota just for funsies.  We didn't really know what we wanted to do there other than see Gooseberry Falls.  So, of course, we packed up the car and headed out! It…

24 Photos That Will Make You Want To Plan A Trip To Germany

There are affiliate links in here. I don't talk about it all that much on here because I've never had the motivation to go back to find good pictures from my trip.  It was also eight years ago, so it's not super fresh in my brain.  I finally decided to take on this task and…

2017 Goals Reviewed + 2018 Travel Goals

This is the other post I always get excited about writing.  I know I've mentioned I love making lists, and I make a list of goals every year.  The last few years I've done a list of goals for when I'm in Wyoming, Utah (or wherever I'll be), and other general goals that aren't necessarily travel…

Super Ultimate Guide To Eau Claire, Wisconsin

I've never really written about Wisconsin before.  And by barely anything, I mean nothing.  I just checked.  I've included it in a few round-up type posts, but that's it.  So today I decided to write up a little super ultimate guide to Eau Claire, Wisconsin, my hometown. This is the place to find where to…

Hello Wisconsin! Why It’s Actually Pretty Cool

There are affiliate links in here.  When you think road trip, you probably don't think Wisconsin.  Or anywhere in the Midwest, really.  I mean, I don't.  I'm not saying it's the ultimate road trip destination, either, but it' actually a lot cooler than most people think. From breweries to cheese, and hiking to art, it's…

My Favorite Travel Planning Resources

There are affiliate links in here.   I've recently realized I've never really gotten into how I plan my trips, which I get really into, by the way.  Even if I am thinking about going somewhere, I will sit and plan it all out.  Just because.  Weird, right?  Does anyone else do that?  Anyone?  It can…

Why I Travel Carry-On Only

There are affiliate links in here.   On my first few international trips, Germany, New Zealand, and Ecuador, I brought along a giant suitcase that I probably could have fit in myself full of way too much stuff that I never used.  It wasn't so terrible on those trips because I didn't really have to carry…
