Travel Tuesday: Yellowstone National Park

Watch my travel vlog here.

Growing up, our major family trips were across the U.S. My mother loves national parks and is passionate about visiting as many as she can, but her favorite has always been Yellowstone National Park. I visited for the first time when I was nine, and then again when I graduated high school.

This article is a continuation of my previous blog post where I detailed where each democratic nominee stands on climate change. Since publishing part 1 of this article, Bill De Blaiso has since ended his 2020 race.

Travel Tuesday: 24 Hours in New York City

Recently, I visited New York City for the first time since I was six years old. Why did it take me 18 years to go back to the city that never sleeps, which is only a four-hour drive from my D.C. home? Honestly, it was so close that I kept putting it off, knowing that it would always be there. But I finally made the drive (well, ride on the Greyhound), and jam-packed everything I wanted to see into 9 hours! Continue reading “Travel Tuesday: 24 Hours in New York City”
