Antelope Canyon: Is it Worth It?

Antelope Canyon: Is it Worth It?

The pictures on Instagram are gorgeous but does it really look like that in person? And if it’s so popular, are there tons of people in the canyon, making it damn near impossible to have an enjoyable time, or even get a good solo picture? Girl, let me help you plan the best trip to Arizona...

How To Get A Permit To The Wave

How To Get A Permit To The Wave

The Wave, located in Northern Arizona, is one of the most “holy fuck is that real?" natural phenomenons in this country. While occupying only a small section of Coyote Buttes, the natural red, orange, and yellow wave-shaped sandstone formations are at the top of many a travelers bucket list. It is definitely a beauty to see, but it’s also fucking hard to get a goddamn permit. This past November, Pate and I traveled to Arizona and Utah, with our hearts set on getting a permit to The Wave (AND WE FUCKING DID Y’ALL!!) I’ll explain the two ways you can go about getting a permit, and some tips for maximizing your chances!

How to Avoid Crowds in Sedona, Arizona

How to Avoid Crowds in Sedona, Arizona

Look. Sedona is gorgeous. It’s actually steal-your-breath-away magically beautiful. But. There are a lot of people who visit Sedona. The hikes are congested, the restaurants are bustling. And if you are like me and you fucking hate looking at anyone else’s face while you hike, you may find yourself somewhat disappointed. When Pate and I went to Sedona for a weekend this November, I consulted my good friend Jena who used to live there and gave me some tips for a more private and special trip...

Two Weeks in Alaska: A Complete Roadtrip Itinerary

Two Weeks in Alaska: A Complete Roadtrip Itinerary

I just came back from a balls ass perfect two week road trip through Alaska and all I can say is, guys, fucking GO TO ALASKA. It’s a beautiful state, sure. But I love it because it’s just fucking weird. Like, legit the second weirdest place I’ve ever been (after North Korea). Here is an outline of my trip, along with what I would do differently next time around.

Hippie Towns: Nimbin, Australia vs San Marcos, Guatemala

Two of the crunchiest hippie towns I have ever visited were Nimbin, Australia and San Marcos, Guatemala. If you are debating between which to visit (I doubt you are, but I just learned that some dudes like being suspended from ceilings by their testicles, so anything is possible), hopefully the following information will help you make your decision.

New Zealand: South Island

New Zealand: South Island

If you are only able to go to one Island in NZ, make it the South. It really is as spectacular as everyone says. I highly recommend renting a car to get around (I got a cheap one from Ace Rentals). Honestly, this entire region is not about the destination, but about the gorgeous landscapes that take your breath away while en route…check out my itinerary + photo journal of my time in the South Island

New Zealand: North Island

New Zealand: North Island

“Should I go to the North Island or the South?” says everyone on a travel time crunch who wants to experience the best of New Zealand. Most people will pretty eagerly say South, and I’m not going to disagree with them; the South is a mind fuck of beauty. But the North Island has some gems as well, and if you have the time I highly recommend checking out both spots. Here is a photo journal (featuring #truetea commentary and some tips and tricks) of my two weeks in the North Island!

Fergburger: Is It Worth The Hype?

Fergburger: Is It Worth The Hype?

Is this the most vacant piece I will probably ever publish on Top Knot? Yes. But chances are you’ve taken a few of those dim “What Kind Of Shoe Are You?” quizzes on Buzzfeed, so we’re all guilty of being dense here. Now that I’m no longer pretending to be a journalist (or educated for that matter), let’s get to a pressing issue: Most restaurants around the world that are “the best” actually suck leaky asshole.

20 Hours in Sydney

20 Hours in Sydney

I just went back to Australia with my boof, Pate, for the second time. Our schedule was tight with family up in Queensland and our campervan road trip in Tasmania, but I insisted we stop over to Sydney. Why? Because I wanted to see the Opera House. Is that touristy as fuck? It sure is, but I deal with your basic ass crawling through Times Square with your mouth agape at some fucking lights on buildings as though you’ve lived without electricity your whole life, so save your eye roll.
