    Solo Trip to Big Bend National Park

    The first time I ever go to a national park by myself, and it is one of the most remote parks in the United States: Big Bend National Park. As with any first times, I was nervous. I did as much research as I could beforehand to prepare for anything, but nothing could have prepared me for the experience.

    I am a podcast junkie. I usually listen to 1-2 podcasts in the morning as I am waking up, and when I drive anywhere. I have been collecting a lot of podcast episodes, and I want to share them with you. Categorized in many different ways, I have a lot of options, so don't be worried there isn't one for you!

    Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami

    One of the biggest changes from this road trip is my willingness to check out museums. I used to view museums as a waste of time cause I didn't have the patience to really look at the art. Now, I take the time to understand the artist's point of view and my interpretation of their work. This post is about Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, which has made my shortlist of great museums.

    Photo Diary: Wynwood Walls

    One of my favorite places in Miami is Wynwood cause of all the graffiti art. I am always in awe of people who can draw because I cannot, but I can certainly appreciate those who can. I was not blogging the last time I was in Wynwood in 2016, so this is snapshot of Wynwood in 2019.
