Billings, Montana blew me away with their food scene. Between classic western diners, to modern martini bars, to the only walkable beer trail in the state, there was so much happening here it needed a separate blog! Here are just a few of the incredible places to stop when you visit Billings.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I visited Billings Montana. I guess I thought it would be completely flat and maybe have good burgers. Man, was I wrong! I mean not about the burgers…but we’ll get to that.
I love any opportunity to get to travel and adventure with my dog Millie, but it’s definitely not always easy. From restaurants, to adventures, to hotels, it’s a LOT to coordinate and figure out where to go.
Lunchtime at Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey can feel like a busy Saturday flea market with shops and restaurants clamoring for your attention and business. There’s one restaurant that isn’t begging for business and shying customers away with their cat calling (chowder calling?)
The realization that I can work from anywhere, combined with filming a travel show around the country has given me new perspective when I go to new cities. Every time I travel it is now with the mindset of “Could I live here?”
Canada ranks very high on the list of the best countries for adventurous travellers. Whether you love skiing, cycling, hiking, or watching wildlife, the country has something for you. Here are five of the best places in Canada for adventurous travellers:
When we arrived, there was one other person who had signed up for a wet-suit who changed her mind so out of hundreds of people snorkeling for the day it was just Kristin and I braving the cold. We were told it was the choice between driving a school bus and driving a Ferrari, of course we chose the Ferrari!!!
There are SO many hiking trails around Southern California that this list could be endless! And I have only explored a small section in my eight years living in Los Angeles. Going off of the many places I’ve had the pleasure of hiking, here are my top 10 favorite hikes around Southern (and a couple in Central) California!
when I was invited to try my hand at skiing again last year at Mountain High Ski Resort I was excited but cautiously nervous as well. As soon as I got there, I realized this would be a TOTALLY different experience.
One of the big reasons that I started Monica Goes was because I saw so many amazing blogs and vlogs of experts going on epic adventures but I kept thinking “What about the rest of us? What about the people like me who loved the outdoors but had NO clue where to start or what I needed? The ones who are scared of the unknown and intimidated by the adrenaline junkies but want to give it a go?”
No matter where you want to travel, renting and traveling with an RV can be a great and memorable experience. Whether you decide that you want to vacation overseas or somewhere in the country, there are ways to rent and travel by RV anywhere you want to go.
Nomadik is an adventure subscription box that arrives every month with new outdoor goodies. I just received my second box and I’m so excited to tell you all about it and what kinds of things you can expect when you subscribe!
Man, every time I go to or through Arizona I just fall more in love with that state! From the desert wilderness, to the red rocks, to the mountaintops, it just gets more and more beautiful! But when I had the chance to visit Tempe last month I wasn’t sure what to expect other than a fun little college town.
True California beach towns are going extinct. All up and down the coast, former strongholds of surf and bohemian culture are being transformed into exclusive neighborhoods for wealthy transplants. Five-star restaurants have been replaced with taco stands, while million dollar mansions now loom where beach bungalows once stood.
However, there are exceptions to this growing rule.
DON’T GET A DOG! I heard it soooo many times throughout my life. First, I was too young, then I was too busy, next it was “wait until you’re married and have help”, and finally “you travel too much” (YUP!) The truth is, like any big decision; starting a job, quitting a job, moving, having kids, or having a dog…there really is no “right time” to make the leap.
