After recently getting back from a long weekend trip to Chicago, I wanted to share all about it with you. However, I thought I’d put together a little guide of some of my favorite things to do, so that you can see just how many incredible things you can fit into a short time in a city. Josh and I got pretty skilled at maximizing our time in a city after we visited seven cities in three weeks last March during our spring break.

This was one of my favorite trips to Chicago to date because 1) my dad gave this trip to me as a belated Christmas present, so I was well equipped with some shopping money for a fun time exploring Michigan Ave. and 2) Josh was able to join us, so I was really happy he could spend a weekend hanging out with my family.

We took the train, which is my absolute favorite way to get to Chicago. The Amtrak is a quick and easy way to travel, and the student discount is pretty great, too. Early last Friday morning, we all begrudgingly pulled ourselves out of our beds and left on an early morning train to Chicago that brought us to Chicago’s Union Station around 10:30am.

From there we took a taxi to our hotel and our weekend began! Below I’ve created an itinerary using most of the things we did this trip, along with a few of my all-time favorite things to do in Chicago, so that you can have a fun-filled, jam-packed 48 hour itinerary in Chicago! Sometimes for me, it’s really helpful to see how you can accomplish all kinds of things in such a small amount of time, so without further ado, here is my Guide to 48 Hours in Chi-town!

Friday, after a late morning arrival in Chicago

12:30pm – Arrive at the hotel on Michigan Avenue, the InterContinental Chicago. I would highly recommend staying here, since I’ve been here on three separate occasions and loved every time. It even has a Starbucks connected to the lobby.

After we checked in to the hotel and organized our things, we headed downstairs, grabbed a coffee from Starbucks and hit Michigan Ave. 

1:45pm – After perusing around some stores on Michigan Ave., it’s time to eat! Opt for the Grand Lux Cafe, which is operated by the same owners of one of my all time favorite restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory.

3:00pm – Hit the town! You’re right in the middle of Michigan Ave., so it’s time to shop! This past trip, I hit LUSH, Topshop, Free People, Nike, ZARA, and a few other places. Since I rarely get the opportunity to shop Michigan Ave., I always go a little crazy shopping when I do come here.

6:00pm – Head towards probably the cutest restaurant I’ve ever been to in my entire life, The Hampton Social, home to the famous “rose all day” sign you’ve most likely seen on Instagram before.

8:00pm – After an incredible dinner at the Hampton Social, head back to the hotel and change into some more comfortable clothes. Walk from the hotel to Lucky Strike, where the rest of the evening can be spent bowling, playing pool or ping pong, and munching on appetizers if you’re still hungry. This place has been a staple to every Chicago trip I’ve taken with my family. It’s the nicest bowling alley I’ve ever been to, and it’s always super crowded, which just adds to the fun atmosphere.

10:30pm – You’ll be pretty tuckered out after your big day, so head back to the hotel to get some sleep. You can always stream a movie in bed, but after this long of a day, I’m sure you’ll be ready to fall asleep as soon as possible.

Saturday 

8:30am – Wake up and get ready for another big day. Today is a big day for photos, so make sure you’re looking ready for a bunch of photo opps!

9:30am – Catch a taxi and head to Goddess and the Baker for breakfast. This is honestly one of my favorite coffee shops and bakeries in the entire world, and it’s a must-do if you’re looking for a fun breakfast spot downtown Chicago. Filled to the brim with the perfect mid-century modern decor, Goddess and the Baker offers food all day, but I would personally recommend the acai bowl, jasmine tea, and apple cinnamon sugar scone for breakfast. It’s a game changer!

3:00pm – Head to Millennium Park to explore! There’s so much to do there, that it will easily take you a while to see everything there is to do. From the stereotypical pictures in front of the Bean or {if you happen to visit in the wintertime like I did} ice skating in front of the Bean, there are so many fun things to do!

6:00pm – Walk back across the Michigan Avenue Bridge to the hotel, where you can have some down time and time to get ready. You’ll need a fancy outfit for what’s to come tonight.

7:30pm – Catch a cab to the Willis Tower to the swanky Metropolitan Club restaurant. I would highly recommend the chicken stuffed with goat cheese and dried cranberries. The views from this restaurant are absolutely incredible. To be able to

10:30pm – After staring at the views of the city from your table, it’s time to head back to the hotel. Make sure to get your things semi organized because you’ll need to check out in the morning!

Sunday

9:30am – After all your luggage is packed up, bring it downstairs to the luggage check so you can keep it at the hotel past the check out time!

10:30am – Walk across the street to the Corner Bakery. This is a great place to grab a quick bowl of fruit or a breakfast panini! You’re going to want to make the most of your time today, since today is the day you head home, so you don’t want to waste a lot of time on food!

11:00am – Catch a taxi to the Field Museum! You could spend as little or as much time as you want here, because you could be content visiting one exhibit, or every single one. Your ticket also includes a movie so that takes up time, too! When we went last weekend, we chose to see the movie “Mysteries of China” which was such an interesting movie in 3D! Also, there was an incredible tattoo exhibit featured where a tattoo artist was actually giving tattoos inside the museum. I could honestly visit the Field Museum every single time I come to Chicago because I learn so much every time. It’s definitely on my must-do list for anyone’s trip to Chicago.

Our train was at 5pm, so we got back to the hotel around 3pm, grabbed some coffee and our luggage, and headed to the train station. 

And with that, a fun weekend in Chicago is pretty much summed up! I wanted to highlight some of my favorite aspects of Chicago for you in case you have a trip planned there soon! Or, if you’ve already visited Chicago, what are some of your favorite things to do there? I’m always looking for more recommendations because I’m sure I’ll be heading back in the near future.

After living in Europe for about six months, I had plenty of time to discover some of the coolest coffee shops I could have ever imagined. When I came back home to the U.S. this summer, it made me all the more determined to seek out even better coffee shops here at home, since the past six months set the bar pretty high for my coffee standards! While the following list doesn’t even begin to describe my coffee shop experiences, these are a few of my favorite locations across Europe in a variety of cities and countries! If you’re looking for more ideas in different countries or cities, please feel free to comment below, because I have plenty more recommendations where these come from!
Sevilla, Spain // Torch Coffee Roasters
  • This is one of those coffee shops that I could have stayed at for hours. After getting to chat with the owners (who happen to be the sweetest sisters from Guatemala) and hear their stories, it was so incredibly powerful to understand the inspiration behind the coffee shop! Torch’s mission is all about empowering people. I also just get so excited about companies that ethically source their coffee. 100% of Torch’s coffee is sourced by farmers who are sustainable financially, environmentally, and socially. That’s something to get excited about, people! They also have a location in Raleigh, NC so you can bet that in the back of my mind, the option of a road trip there is always an idea!

Istanbul, Turkey // Twins Coffee Roasters

  • When Josh and I got caught in a downpour walking around Istanbul while doing some exploring, we happened upon this shop. When we walked in, I instantly realized that this was one of those places that I just couldn’t get over how much I loved the vibe there. With a neon pink light with Turkish writing hanging the main concrete wall, and grunge music playing in the background, I really don’t think I’ve been in a place that’s so hip before. This was the first coffee shop I was inside during my six month stint in Europe, so this one is really memorable to me, especially I think because it was such an awe-filled experience (like most of the time I sat there thinking, wait. I am in Europe. This is really happening. Oh my gosh).

Marrakech, Morocco // Atay Cafe Food
  • Overwhelmed by the vendors following us around the medina for hours, trying to get us to by their wares, Josh, Kelly, and I finally found refuge at Atay Cafe Food, a wonderful oasis in the middle of the medina. If you’ll be doing a lot of shopping in Marrakech’s famous Medina, this is a perfect place to grab some peace. When I say peace, you’ll only truly know what I mean if you’ve been to Marrakech. With the people yelling at you trying to sell you things, the constant overwhelming smells, and the bustling crowds, I felt such a need for peace after a while of being in that scenario. This is owned by Frenchmen and it is such a classy take on Moroccan style. There are beautiful art pieces and Moroccan style rugs hanging along the walls, and the bright accents of the pillows and decor contrasted quite chicly with the plain white walls. After enjoying some of the best food ever, we tried their coffee and were amazed with how delicious it was. I would highly recommend anything from here. Between Kelly, Josh, and I, we all tried plenty of different food and drinks and it was all 100%.

Málaga, Spain // Dulces Dreams Boutique Hostel + Café

  • If I could just live in a coffee shop, this one would be it. Fortunately, that’s very possible, since this cafe also doubles as a hostel! This place was just around the corner from our Airbnb while we were in Málaga, and I am not ashamed to say we went here every morning for breakfast during our weekend. From the delicious food to the lattes that I was literally obsessed with. Also, this place gave me some major gallery wall inspo, I mean come on how cool does this wall look? All of the art pieces were on sale and we made by locals from Málaga!
dulces-dreams-boutique
Copenhagen, Denmark // The Coffee Collective 
  • After arriving in Denmark at about 6am, Josh and I couldn’t think about anything else when we landed in the Copenhagen airport other than coffee. We proceeded to get off the airplane and headed directly to The Coffee Collective, even before checking in to our Airbnb. The shop itself is inside of a large indoor farmer’s market, so the entire surrounding area is amazing to wander around and explore also, as you have your cup of coffee in hand. Josh and I both ordered vanilla lattes and they were incredible. The Coffee Collective baristas truly know their thing and they take what they do SO seriously. Have a conversation with one of them and their eyes will light up as they talk about their art.
Alicante, Spain // Farmer’s Cafe
  • I saved the best for last, I guess! Living in Alicante for almost six months, I was always on the lookout for a great new cafe to open. Well, about halfway into my time spent in Alicante, I noticed this storefront with a sign announcing that a cafe was going to open soon there. After attending the Grand Opening for Farmer’s Cafe, I knew this was going to be my place. You know the feeling when you step inside a place and you know you’re just going to spend a lot of time there? That was exactly how I felt after I came here for the first time. Just a few weeks later, Josh and I quickly became friends with the sweet owners, Andrea, Ruben, and Daniel. The Farmer’s, as we like to endearingly call them, became our best friends from the semester. We would spend hours at Farmer’s speaking in a weird mix of Spanish and English, since all of us can at least conversationally speak both languages. Some of my best memories of Alicante took place inside of Farmer’s, and they were all accompanied by a cappuccino!

img_2256

As you can tell, some of the best memories of coffee shops around Europe were often because of the conversations that were had or the friendships that were built there. One of my favorite aspects of coffee, all over the world, is that it can bring people together. There is such a sense of community that revolves around coffee, and that is something that I absolutely treasure. While it’s easy to plug in some headphones and enjoy your ristretto or americano in peace, there is also something quite beautiful in spending that time sipping your coffee over a great conversation. What do you think? What are some of your favorite coffee shops here in the U.S. or around the world? I am constantly growing my list of places that I need to go to, so I’m open to all the more ideas!

Much love,

Ireland was the final destination of our three week long spring break. By the time we arrived in Dublin by way of Budapest, we were pretty much crabby and exhausted, to be quite honest. I was getting extremely sick at this point of the trip, and there was even a point when we were in Dublin when our friends wanted to go explore, but Josh was kind enough to stay with me at the hostel to watch Braveheart, because I was so sick.

img_6573

If you were to ask me about our hostel experience, I would probably have nothing good to say about it, but I think that I really need to try the experience again. Since my first time at a hostel was as a wiped out, miserable version of myself, I think that I cemented my harsh opinions before giving the hostel experience the chance it deserved. Normally, I’d like to think that if I were feeling healthy and all was well, I would have been sociable and tried to make a ton of friends at the hostel. However, since I was dealing with sickness, the rowdy other occupants of our hostel room only annoyed me with their late night drunken shenanigans and 2am bouts of incessant coughing! We spent a Thursday evening – Sunday evening in Ireland and it was probably the most perfectly allotted time out of any of the cities we traveled to over spring break. Some of the cities we visited, we felt like we needed so much more time, while others, we felt like we spent way too long in (ahem, I’m looking at you, Brussels).

On Thursday night, we found ourselves eating pub food (I enjoyed some amazing beef stew), then meandering over to a stand up comedy show. This was an incredibly enjoyable experience for us because there were a lot of locals at the show, and the emcee had quite the time making fun of Josh throughout the show; he’s a pretty easy target, hehe! 😉 After the show, we wandered back to the hostel, which was situated on the edge of the Temple Bar district of Dublin. I loved walking the streets of Dublin and, despite the seemingly constant dismal skies and drizzling rain, it was quite picturesque.

img_6581

Friday morning, Josh surprised me by waking me up in the hostel with a cup of coffee and medicine that he had gone out to buy for me earlier in the morning. It was such a nice surprise and I was so thankful for that, because that was just what I needed to feel good enough to get started for the day. After grabbing breakfast at the hostel, we headed to an early morning walking tour of Dublin. Like I’ve said before in other posts, Josh and I tried to take advantage of the fact that most cities offered free walking tours whenever we traveled to new places. This allowed us to not only get a good grasp of the city where we were staying and learn about the top attractions to check out, but we always learned so much history behind the city. It was a great mix of culture and history, and we always walked away feeling so much better informed than when we arrived.

After the walking tour, Josh and I revisited some of the places from the walking tour that were interesting to us, including places like Christ Church Cathedral, the Spire of Dublin, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, more of the Temple Bar District and more.

One thing I forgot to mention was that when we landed in Dublin, the sweetest couple gave us their bus passes because they were heading home, but they still had a few days of rides left on their passes. So, Friday afternoon, we took advantage of our bus passes and simply rode the tourist line for a bit, to see some of the sights that were recommended. We ended up at the Guinness Storehouse. This was honestly such a cool experience. Not only was it informative, historically fascinating and fun, but the top floor of the Storehouse had a bar and restaurant with one of the best views of Dublin. I would recommend the tour of the brewery if for nothing else but the view! All of the days that we were in Dublin were completely dreary and overcast, but from my understanding, that’s pretty much the norm. So the photo below is a pretty great shot, taking the weather into consideration! 🙂

img_6653

That evening, we were able to meet up with our friends Bri and Scott for dinner and more exploring. Looking back, I can’t believe I had the opportunity to travel to so many cities with so many of my close friends. It truly becomes a bond with those people that I will have for a lifetime.

We woke up at the crack of dawn early on Saturday to grab a shuttle a few blocks from our hostel. There, we began the three hour drive to the complete opposite side of the country to the Cliffs of Moher! Honestly, if you only have the opportunity to do one thing, the Cliffs of Moher  should absolutely be it. One of my favorite things was the cross-country drive, and looking at the window to see how the scenery changed. All of the cliches about Ireland I had in my mind were true! We saw pastures full of sheep and herding dogs and shepherds and it was just all. so. green!

img_6688

The Cliffs of Moher were so incredible that absolutely no picture will ever do it justice. There weren’t any railings at the ledge, so you could sit right along the drop-off, despite the “rocks may give way” signs posted occasionally along the edge. I loved the adrenaline that came with sitting on the edge, looking out to sea, and taking in a breath full of fresh, clean air. It was terrifying to see how far the drop would be, but incredible to marvel at the Cliffs of Moher.

Sunday, before our flight left Ireland and we went back to Alicante, we were able to walk around Trinity College and do a little bit of shopping. We ventured to a few cool coffee shops on Sunday, too, which of course is something I always love to check out when exploring a new city! We were pretty tired though, since this was the final day of a three week traveling period, so we headed to the airport a bit early and prepared to head back to Alicante. It was such a bittersweet feeling.

img_0404

While it was sad not to be constantly traveling like we had been, I am forever grateful for the time that we had. Josh and I had the most incredible time together and it really truly helps you learn so much about someone when you travel with them.

I hope this inspired you to travel more! Much love,

Olivia

Out of all the places I’ve traveled to recently, the one place I really wish that I would have had more time in was Milan. It should be noted that I did three weeks of constant traveling with Josh during our spring break, and we were all over the place. During that time, we traveled to Seville, Brussels, Copenhagen, Venice, Milan, Budapest, and Dublin. Obviously there were a few things I would have done differently out of all of that and one of them is that I wish I could have spent at least three days in Milan.

As a fashion merchandising major, I was at heaven among the noisy, bustling streets of one of the world’s fashion capitals. The headquarters of some of the most famous designers are located here, so seeing showrooms for Gucci, Prada, Versace, etc. is a pretty common thing (but it wasn’t common enough that I could get over the freaking out feeling every time I saw one of those stores). The architecture of the city is absolutely mesmerizing and we stayed in this Airbnb with the most amazing view of the city. I’ll post the link to the my Airbnb account HERE so you can get yourself some $30 free in travel credit and HERE for the link to where we stayed so you can see how amazing it was.

IMG_9587

We got to Milan bright and early, since we had taken a train at the crack of dawn from Venice. We kicked off our morning in Milan by sipping on some cappuccinos (Italians do it best, you know) and eating croissants and strawberry scones at Princi Cafe, which was just steps outside of the door to our Airbnb. We stopped here at the recommendation our our host, and she couldn’t have given us a better place to go. The countless pastries and goodies that they were serving at Princi were to die for, and it took all the self control in me not to eat my way through the cafe!

After fueling up a bit, we moved on and walked towards downtown a bit more. It was a dreary Sunday morning, but despite that, there were quite a bit of people out and about. First, we stopped at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the iconic building that is the world’s oldest shopping mall which has been flourishing since it opened in 1877. Honestly, not only did the architecture but the store selection blow me away here. Some of the dreamiest stores lined the sides of the mall, from Prada and Valentino to Missoni or Dolce & Gabbana. To be completely honest, I felt so out of place. High fashion isn’t necessarily something that I would ever consider wearing myself, but I can’t describe the feeling of walking in some of those stores in Milan and looking at some of the most exquisite and expensive items I have ever seen in my life.

Right outside of the mall is the Ferrari store, which Josh and I spent quite a bit of time in. It’s quite the experience if you get the chance to go inside of the store. First of all, there is such an unbeatable high energy inside of the store that makes it a great place to be, with all kinds of racing noises playing through the speakers. Additionally, with perks like driving stimulators and a model of a Ferrari made out of Legos, it’s a pretty fun time.

After that, we walked to the Duamo to begin one of the most memorable experiences of the entire spring break trip. We tried to figure out what package we should buy, since you need to obviously pay to get in. There are lots of different package deals, which grant you access to various parts of the building. Since we were trying to budget extremely carefully, we ended up only getting tickets that gave us access to the first floor of the cathedral itself. In a different circumstance, we might have wanted to see other parts of it (I know that the roof of the Duamo is a famous view of the city and a popular tourist destination) but honestly this ended up being the perfect option for us. Like I said, we happened to be in Milan on a Sunday morning, so as it turned out, we entered the cathedral right as Mass was starting. What an experience! I honestly have no words for the feeling of worshipping in such a beautiful place as we listened to the liturgy echoing all around us. While I couldn’t understand everything being said, I was able to comprehend a surprising amount using my Spanish knowledge and finding the similarities between the languages.

IMG_9674

After that amazing experience, we grabbed some pasta and coffee at a sidewalk restaurant and simply enjoyed the day. By the late afternoon, the sun was finally out and people were out in even greater amounts than they were in the morning. After we ate, we did what we of course had to do in Milan…shop. We conquered block after block and street after street of a mix of high end and budget stores that were full of some of the most beautiful displays I’d ever seen. At times, though it was cliche, I felt the need to check and see if I was dreaming because of how surreal this day felt.

Unfortunately, I really wanted to go out for the night to see Milan at nighttime, but I actually got pretty sick towards the evening. Thankfully, Josh was super sweet and went to the grocery store and picked me up some food and tea for dinner and all we did for the evening was watch Zoolander. Not the ideal way to spend part of your 24 hours in Milan, but we definitely made the most of the situation and it worked out great.

Since our airplane to Budapest left at I believe 7am, we traipsed through Milan in the middle of the night to the train station which is where we took a train to get to the airport. The funny part of traveling is that you get to see other people at some of their best and worst points, so looking back on this point of the trip, I’m pretty sure Josh saw me at one of my lows, haha. I was a basket case, to say the least. Not only was I still pretty sick from the evening before, but I am in no way, shape, or form a morning person. We literally were sprinting through the dark, empty streets to ensure that we made this one specific train and I can hear Josh’s words so clearly in my head telling me that I’m doing great but I need to run faster and then I can sleep once I’m on the train.

Thankfully, we made it on time to the train, and consequently the airplane that took us on to Budapest. We had a bit of a rushed exit of Milan and I felt like we said ciao a bit too abruptly, so I just can’t help but wish I could go back and see a bit more. There’s always next time, though…I believe without a doubt that I’ll be back to explore Milan once again, only with a little bit more time on my hands next time!

Much love,

Hey guys!

I kicked off the month of July with the most killer road trip so far of my life! My family and I flew into Phoenix, rented a car and drove to Sedona and Flagstaff in AZ, St. George, UT, and Las Vegas. And…during all of that, we were able to see the entire South Rim of the Grand Canyon! The trip was amazing for many reasons, but one of the main things that I loved about it was the chance to see so many different types of scenery all in one trip. With the red rocks in Sedona, the absolute jaw-dropping depths of the Grand Canyon, and the cityscapes in Las Vegas,  there were constantly new things to see. I wanted to share with you today some of my very favorite aspects of the trip.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Phoenix, Arizona.

After flying into Phoenix from St. Louis, we spent a few days here and stayed in an a rad airbnb. Click HERE to get my gift of $30 travel credit towards your first Airbnb stay! We explored the Scottsdale and Phoenix area, and I personally was obsessed with everything about the city. Scottsdale impressed me so much because I had no idea how poppin’ it is! From cool restaurants to endless shopping opportunities, the options for fun are endless. My friend Sophie gave us some pretty amazing restaurant ideas. One of the first places on the list we hit up was {my new favorite place ever} Diego Pops for tacos and nachos. The next few days consisted of a little bit of outdoor adventures but a whole lot of pool time and air conditioned adventures…considering it was 115 degrees out.

IMG_7028

Sedona, Arizona.

After Phoenix, the real road trip began as we made our way to Sedona, where we stayed at the beautiful Sunset Chateau for a few days. I loved our time spent in Sedona because everywhere we went was just incredibly beautiful. The red rocks that surround the town just set the perfect backdrop for everywhere you go. While we were in Sedona, we hiked Red Rocks State Park, took the ever popular Pink Jeep tour of the Red Rocks, and visited Montezuma’s Castle Ruins. Sedona also has such a quaint downtown area that is filled with souvenir shops and cute restaurants. One of my favorite experiences of the whole trip was simply going out to eat in Sedona because if you ate out on a patio, you were surrounded by the rocks the whole time, which fascinated me so much.

IMG_3864

Flagstaff, Arizona.

Downtown Flagstaff was so fun! It honestly is so eclectic and has such a great vibe. There are plenty of boutiques, restaurants, stores, and coffee shops to keep you busy for hours. I found tons of cute souvenirs in Flagstaff for myself, family, and friends. We also visited Walnut Canyon National Monument, which was incredible. These were a series of hiking trails through cliff dwellings of Indians from centuries ago. This was absolutely a once-in-a-lifetime thing to see that I would recommend to anyone. The dwellings were still kept up so well and you could actually go inside all the little rooms and imagine just what life must have been like for the different Hopi tribes who had inhabited these areas.

IMG_7201

St. George, Utah. 

From Flagstaff to St. George is the route we took to ensure we saw as much of the Grand Canyon as we could during the trip. Since we saw the whole South Rim, I took so many pictures that I wasn’t sure my memory card that holds 3,000 pictures would have enough room…embarrassing haha. We didn’t do too much in the actual town of St. George, however, Zion National Park is located nearby, so we stayed overnight in St. George. I absolutely loved exploring Zion, as well as the little town that Zion is located in. It’s so cute! But honestly, Zion is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places that I’ve been to ever, and it was just crazy to take in. That’s kind of the theme for the entire trip that I felt…it was all just so overwhelmingly beautiful to take in. It was one of those times where (yes I know it’s cliche, but…) I felt like I needed to pinch myself to ensure that it was real life.

IMG_4080

Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Since we were only in Las Vegas for a little under 24 hours, I don’t have a ton of recommendations, however what I can say is that visiting the Seven Magic Mountains art installation is a must. The bright colors of the mountains stand out so strongly in contrast with the brownness of the desert surrounding it. This honestly was my top recommendation for your to-do list while in Las Vegas. Don’t get me wrong, the Strip is definitely intoxicating with all the flashing lights and bright colors, but this really topped the charts for me. I’d love to return to Las Vegas again soon, because even though I was there for such a short time, I saw what a cool city it is and I’d love to have some more time to explore there!

IMG_7386

And of course, as promised, here is my playlist for your summer roadtrip adventures. It seriously makes me so happy listening to this whether I’m on a short drive or in the car for a long haul! The time spent in the car definitely is much more enjoyable when you’re able to jam out to some of your favorite tunes along the way. And when it comes to the car you’re going to rent for the next road trip you’ll be taking, you should absolutely check out Turo, a website that allows you to rent cars from other people at an economical price. Since I already mentioned my affinity for Airbnb above, I thought I would now share the place to go for the Airbnb of car renting! With Turo, you have the opportunity to rent someone else’s car for any period of time you’d like…making it the perfect option for a road trip. You can click HERE to book a car, or learn more about Turo HERE. Happy road tripping, friends!
