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.

Governors Island: My Favorite Place In NYC

Governors Island: My Favorite Place In NYC

I love New York City. It’s the only place in the whole damn world (and I have been all over the whole damn world) where people walk at an appropriate speed. The people who live here are my favorite kind of people: sharp as hell and weird as fuck. But most importantly, I can get a bagel literally 24 hours a day, 365 days a year including during blizzards and hurricanes. Sure, I could happily live without the smell of hot garbage in the summertime, and the fact that I don’t even wince at a $16 cocktail using well vodka is absurd, but all this is a small price to pay for living in the greatest city on earth.

NYC: What It's Like To Float In A Sensory Deprivation Tank

NYC: What It's Like To Float In A Sensory Deprivation Tank
