By birth year I am technically a millennial, but sometimes I feel a little more Generation X. Perhaps it’s the stigma that millennials love technology, which I do –I’d cry if my laptop crashed before I remembered to back it up (and not to the cloud because ‘nobody understands the cloud’)- but that doesn’t mean I love all advancements of technology, and sometimes want to be stubborn toward them.

Intrigued by the Harmony of Nature and Lives at Ohiopyle State Park

I have enjoyed living in Pittsburgh for the most part of past four years. To be honest, though, Pittsburgh winters can be a little bit of dull. Thus, when summer finally arrives, everything is reborn. So am I!

The Ultimate Travel and Fitnesss Backpack from Fitmark

In our house, we have a tussle for bags. I use them for travel (international, domestic, to the beach), whilst my husband, a CBS Sports Radio show host, is always grabbing them for his workouts (and complaining about sand). And we have our favorite bags - one of which has had a lot of tussle lately.

Sea Otters, Sea Lions, and California Seals, Oh My!

A frolicsome sea otter, noisy (and stinky) sea lions, and hundreds of migrating pelicans were among the first inhabitants to greet us as the Elkhorn Slough Safari (a 27 ft. pontoon boat) motored slowly away from the harbor.

#StudyAbroadBecause the experience changes you in the most unexpected and amazing ways

Hello! My name is Danielle Weber and I am currently a student at Grand Valley State University through the University Center in Traverse City, Michigan. I am 25 years old and I feel I am finally discovering my passions. I had always dreamed of traveling abroad, but never thought I would have the chance due to my financial situation. My life was changed by attending an event at Grand Valley and one of the many discussions was studying abroad.

The Big Trip: Your Ultimate Guide to Gap Years and Overseas Adventures

Truth: international experiences change your life. That's why we do it - why we travel, learn new languages, try different foods, fall in love with colors and textiles, walk beaches and ancient paths, explore, make new friends, and keep traveling. International experiences can come in a plethora of forms - study abroad, gap year, weekend travel, year-long RTW trips, cooking classes, couchsurfing, sporting events - the list is endless, which is exciting!

Whether you’re on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook, these days, travel quotes are ever present. Found on social media, they urge the end of complacency and the rise of carpe diem. Adventures and journeys, whether personal or actual, are growing in popularity. In a world where materialism still reigns supreme, thankfully, more and more people are choosing experiences over purchases and realizing that comfort zones are meant to be broadened.
