Each blog has a unique take on the different facets of travel. The Culture-ist has some great think pieces and photo essays, Thrillist is known for their love of adventure and crazy attractions, Tuula Vintage and The Love Assembly combine fashion and travel in a flawless manner, and my new favorite, A Modern Wayfarer, has great personal posts in addition to interviews with other rad globetrotters!

In addition to visiting Washington, D.C., I spent a little time in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.
This city is super cute and has a really European feel to it…Although I couldn’t quite pin point what other city it reminded me of. Anyways, I loved just strolling around the streets here. Most of the buildings retain their original 1800s style and structure which is super impressive. King Street is the main road here, and if you follow it all the way to the bottom (which I did) it will take you to the Potomac River. There you’ll find an adorable boardwalk complete with more shops, cafes, and the like. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a local farmer’s market on my way to the river as well!
As a Metro Detroit native, it’s really a shame that I don’t get down to Detroit more often. Every time that I do visit, however, I’m reminded of just how powerful the city is. Although there is a lot of work that still needs to be done, the city is booming and the people are proud. What I like most about Downtown is that it has a character all its own. There isn’t a city like Detroit out there and our spirit emanates from every corner. My cousins and I had quite the weekend in the city:
Driving around Downtown: Side streets, The Riverfront, Heidelberg project, etc.
Breaking into Abandoned Buildings: Detroit has over 78,000 of them and as long as they are not schools or buildings that are being restored it is OK to trespass. We ventured inside of a church and a 15-story apartment building.
Visiting The Henry Ford Museum: This museum is like stepping inside of a time machine! It’s super interactive which makes it impossible to not have a good time. There are all sorts of relics that showcase just how innovative the American people are.
Attending a Tigers Baseball Game at Comerica Park: Great food, great beer, great company. The atmosphere inside of the stadium is amazing.
I love this blog!!! I just came across it today and have already spent the better part of my afternoon reading through the various posts. What I like most about Voyage D’Etudes is that it is a unique collection of moments and memories which have been organically captured through photos, scraps, and objects during different travel experiences. Basically, this is everything I wish my blog could be! Read more here (and enjoy!)
La Dolce Vita, a new series by photographer Gray Malin, captures some of the most amazing beaches in Italy. The vintage inspired set is a result of a 2,000 mile coastal road trip from Cinque Terre to Capri and everywhere in between.
