Who is in reflection mode? ⠀ ⠀ Who even knows what day it is?!⠀ ⠀ I kind of love this time of year. Part motivation and part fully transformed couch potato.⠀ ⠀ I just recently published my year in review blog post (first time doing one!) and wanted to reflect here too! ⠀ ⠀ These were my top 9 Instagram posts of 2019 and it sums up pretty nicely how great this year was. From left to right:⠀ ⠀ 1) My obsession with Costa Rican squirrels began right here. ⠀ ⠀ 2) The picturesque town of Pokhara, Nepal was just stunning and magical.⠀ ⠀ 3) Murals + Coffee = Nashville (home).⠀ ⠀ 4) NYC as seen from the High Line.⠀ ⠀ 5) HI hostel in NYC.⠀ ⠀ 6) One of the best things I ate this year - from Orchard Grocer in NYC.⠀ ⠀ 7) My ride or die repping Dropps.⠀ ⠀ 8) A throwback photo of Northern Ireland in 2017.⠀ ⠀ 9) Hot air balloon ride over Mesa, Arizona.⠀ ⠀ What were your best moments of 2019? ⠀ ⠀ #wildhearted #wildandfree #2019 #bestof2019 #2019reflections #newyearseve #endofyear #reflection #costarica #pokharanepal #nepal #visitmusiccity #newyorkcity #hiusa #vegantravel #everydroppscounts #discoverni #visitmesa #bestofthebest #top9of2019

Believe in Aliens? Visit These 7+ Out of This World Places

The place most people think of when they think of places to see aliens, or at least attempt to see them. It’s the home to the infamous 1947 UFO crash. The town has 100% embraced its alien status by opening alien-themed restaurants and shops, a spaceship-shaped McDonald’s, the International UFO Museum, and more. The one in 2020 is set for July 3-5, 2020.

I found that it’s National Bat Week so what better time to share one of the coolest (and weirdest) experiences I’ve had. While in Austin, I headed to the Congress Street Bridge at sunset to watch over 2 million bats emerge for feeding and other bat things. ⁣ 🦇 ⁣ I thought this would be cool but it really did blow my mind and it was incredibly hard to capture the feeling and experience so you’ll have to take this crappy video and trust me. ⁣ 🦇 ⁣ Do you think bats are cool or creepy?⁣ 🦇 ⁣ #odditiesandcuriositiestravel #nationalbatweek #weirdtravel #keepaustinweird #austintexas #atxlifestyle #trueaustin #exploreaustin #texasforever #austintx #igaustin #igaustintexas #downtownaustin #bat #dontmesswithtexas #lonestarstate #bats #odd #curious #365thingsaustin #congressbridgebats #igtexas #visittexas #oddandcurious #strangetravel #batsofinstagram #bats

Where and Why You Should Visit Them

The National Museum of Civil War Medicine offers visitors a unique glance at the difficult conditions soldiers had during the Civil War and the many medical innovations that occurred during that time, many of which we still use today. Anyone that enjoys history should visit this museum, but Civil War history buffs especially should consider a visit. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the war, women’s roles as nurses, and about the medicines and procedures that kept soldiers on both sides of the war fit to fight. The museum is open every day except New Year’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.

⁣Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Merry Yule, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, or anything else you may celebrate!⠀ ⠀ We used to make cookies every year and I missed it so I decided to do it this year! ⠀ ⠀ What traditions are you enjoying today? ⠀ ⠀ #wildhearted #wildandfree #merrychristmas #merryxmas #happyholidays #merryyule #vegancookies #cookies #christmascookies #whatveganseat #decoratedcookies #veganfoodporn #sugarcookies #vegansofinstagram #bestofvegan #cookieart #customcookies #edibleart #veganchristmas #decoratedsugarcookies #cookiesofinstagram #cookielove #instacookies #veganfoodlovers #veganlifestyle #vegancommunity #veganeats #vegangirl #icingcookies #veganfoodspot

Weird Things to Do in Indianapolis, Indiana for the Strange & Unusual

When people think of strange  and unusual things to do, they think of places like Austin, Texas or Portland, Oregon. However, Indianapolis has it’s own arguably large share of weird, dark, and unusual things. ’ Jim Jones, the mastermind behind the Peoples Temple, called Indianapolis home for a while and even started the first official church of the Peoples Temple right in Indy. So, as you can see, we could have an entire post on just the dark history of Indianapolis, but first, let’s start by letting you in on all the weird things to do in Indianapolis.

The coolest ‘new age’ shop I’ve been in and, of course, it’s located in Salem! ⁣ 🔮⁣ Where’s the coolest new age store you’ve been to? ⁣ 🔮⁣ #visitsalem #salemma #halloween #witch #trickortreat #pumpkins #nightmarebeforechristmas #jackolantern #instahorror #horrorfan #pumpkinpatch #horrorobsessed #horrorfiend #horroraddict #wiccan #wicca #witchcraft #witchesofinstagram #falldecor #pagan #witchy #horrorlife #ilovehorror #horrorgram #occult #witches #horrorjunkie #destinationsalem #gothgirl #moonchild

Central State Hospital Indiana & the Medical History Museum

The Central State Hospital in Indiana is an interesting stop while in Indy – head to the Indiana Medical History Museum in the Old Pathology Building! This is exactly why the Central State Hospital Indiana Medical History Museum was on my list of things to do in Indy when I found out about it. The Indiana Medical History Museum is located on the grounds of the former Central State Hospital on the west side of Indianapolis. By the end of the decade, 1969, the Pathological Department was turned into a museum and the interior was left intact so what you’re visiting at the Indiana Medical History Museum looks just like it did when it was in operation 60 years ago.
