7 Things to do in Berlin, Germany in 48 Hours

I'll admit upfront that I didn't love Berlin. I didn't find any of its neighborhoods charming and the entire city feels... cold and grey. It might have had something to do with visiting at the end of October, but either way, Berlin and I just never clicked. It's important to note that part of the reason…

48 Hours in Atlanta

It was a city I didn't know much about -- but when my mom was traveling for business, I took advantage of a free hotel room and set out to spend 48 hours in Atlanta. The city surprised me with all it had to offer - from some of the best ribs I've tasted to one…

48 Hours in Casablanca, Morocco

Casablanca is usually written off as a place to land at the airport and head directly for Morocco's photogenic destinations like Marrakech, Fes, Chefchaouen, the Sahara, or the Atlas Mountains.

San Antonio definitely shares some hipster vibes with nearby Austin, but the south-central Texas city known for the Alamo and its River Walk has its own unique personality that's steeped in history, a craft cocktail culture and a whole lotta delicious Mexican food.

Marrakech, Morocco: The Solo Female Travel Guide to a Weekend in the Red City

Solo female travel in Marrakech, Morocco might sound intimidating, but I think it's the ideal destination for three reasons: it's safe (violent crimes against tourists are rare in Morocco), the nightlife is either ridiculously expensive or nonexistent so you won't feel like you're missing something without friends to go out with, and the shopping is so fantastic,…
