5 Things I Never Travel Internationally Without

Unless you travel internationally on a regular basis, I think most of us can agree that a significant more amount of preparation (and oftentimes, stress) goes into making sure you have everything you’ll need before heading out the door. I grew up traveling abroad a decent amount–visiting family in India and my parents have always loved to do family trips–but it wasn’t until I started traveling sans-guardians that I figured out the essentials that were really important to me specifically.

My Favorite Travel Credit Card

Capital One Venture Card Review

TRUFFLE pouch (c/o)

It’s been a little since I’ve done a travel-related post but I have a few ideas brewing and wanted to start with one of my favorite post-college discoveries: travel credit cards. It’s been nearly four years since I entered the “real world,” and it took me until just over a year ago to fully discover the beauty of these guys. I’ve mentioned them before but wanted to talk a little more about my card of choice, the Capital One Venture Card.

48 Hours in Williamsburg, VA


J and I went to Williamsburg this past weekend with one of our fav couples, and the historic town did not disappoint! I’ve always wanted to visit, thanks in part to Felicity and the American Girl series (#tbt), and of course wanted to take advantage of it being an easy drive from DC.

We got to Williamsburg around at around 2pm on Saturday, checked into the hotel, and headed to Williamsburg Winery for wine + snacks before freshening up before dinner. Sunday was filled with more food, history, and lots of walking…pretty much what you’d expect a Williamsburg weekend to look like. Breaking down what we did (and where we ate, of course) below!
