One week and 3,000 miles later, I completed my second cross-country road trip with my partner in travel. It was another trip full of irreplaceable memories and I am, as always, grateful to have another unforgettable adventure with my Pop Pop. https://youtu.be/nwex0PdSU2U

Philly’s Eastern State Penitentiary: Terror Behind the Walls

I went to prison this Halloween, and it was thrilling. When I got the chance to visit Terror Behind the Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary, a historical landmark in Philadelphia, with my best friend, I was super excited to be jumping out of my skin in fear. I didn’t quite do that, but my heart… Continue reading Philly’s Eastern State Penitentiary: Terror Behind the Walls
