What souvenirs do you like to find while traveling? I love markets like this, and this has to be the most unique location I’ve seen. I always try to get a piece of art from each city I visit - they remind me of my adventures when I’m back home!

We were disappointed that the two days we spent in Antigua were very grey, but lucky that it didn’t really rain more than a light sprinkle! That is one of the downsides of a shorter trip - you don’t have the time to wait for a nicer day to do things. But I don’t think a little rain has ever stopped us from exploring even on longer trips!

What's the most unique city you've been to? The truly amazing thing about Antigua is that there are ruins of gorgeous buildings like this on virtually every street. After the capital of Guatemala was moved from Antigua to Guatemala City in the late 1700s, the Spanish colonial buildings - many in ruins from earthquakes - were left standing. I've honestly never visited a city quite like it! . . . . 📸 @astute_moose

Do you prefer to explore small cities, or larger ones? The other factor we considered in choosing our international destination for our long weekend was city size - we wanted a city small enough to explore thoroughly in just a couple days without feeling like we missed out on things we needed to see! Antigua ended up being absolutely perfect - there was plenty to do, but we were able to wander around and enjoy the sights without feeling like we needed to rush to get it all in.

Where would you like to go for a long weekend? When we were choosing an international destination for our long weekend, we focused on choosing someplace that neither of us had been to, and that had affordable flights, with as little travel time as possible. It was tricky to do from the US, but we managed it! We ended up having the afternoon of Saturday, all day Sunday, and Monday morning to explore. Follow along for more about how we spent our time in the city! . . . . 📸credit @astute_moose

I know my feed makes it look like I'm traveling all the time - and I wish I was - but that's very far from the truth. As much as I'd love to run off to travel the world, it's pretty impossible to litigate a case hundreds or thousands of miles from the courthouse. But I have become an expert at maximizing my weekends and vacation time - follow along to hear about how we managed a trip to Guatemala from the United States over just a three-day weekend! . . . 📸 by @astute_moose because most of my photos are still trapped on my old iPhone....

Do you wake up early when you're traveling, or do you like to sleep in? I'm team sleep in all the way, but I'd love to be more of a morning person to catch beautiful moments like this sunrise! Because I was only in Sanibel for 36 hours, I was determined to make the most of it, and I was so proud of myself for actually getting up early.

What’s the most spontaneous trip you’ve ever taken? I’m still a bit shocked that I took this whirlwind Florida trip a few weeks ago - it’s definitely the most impulsive airline ticket I’ve ever booked! I decided to do it two days before leaving, and was only on the island for about 36 hours - but it was definitely worth it!

It’s a beautiful clear day in DC today, but it’s so cold, so I’m still dreaming about beaches. Sometimes I forget that I do live in a really fantastic city - I’m always planning my next trip or daydreaming of being somewhere else. Any tips for remembering to appreciate your home base when you’re not traveling?

Anyone else think sandpipers are the most adorable little birds ever? I love watching them dart around the beach, scurrying with their little tiny feet to avoid the waves.

Will I ever get tired of posting sunset photos? Probably not... especially because I’ve only recently begun to capture them somewhat well. What newly developed skills are you proud of? I love hearing about people’s accomplishments!

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving tradition? When I was growing up we’d come here every Thanksgiving for a mini family reunion. I was so sad when that tradition ended, but I love going back whenever I get the chance.

Trying to get over my insecurity about posting pictures of myself on Instagram... so here’s a picture of my face. Looking at this picture just makes me think of the fantastic day I had at the beach with my family, so why shouldn’t I share something that makes me happy? Anyone else get anxious about putting themselves out there on social media?

Are you ready for winter? Today we had our first snowfall in DC, which immediately turned to slush and freezing rain... so I’m staying warm by remembering sunsets in my favorite tropical paradise.

Today’s photo was an experiment in figuring out how to work with a new tripod and remote. Swipe for a slightly embarrassing behind the scenes peek at of me trying to see if it was working... #noideawhatimdoing

Missing this view - this beach is definitely the place I want to run away to whenever I’m stressed... even when I was just there a few weeks ago. Do you have a favorite getaway spot to escape to?

I’ve never really been a fan of birthdays (well, my birthday - I love other people’s), and today is no different... but a couple weekends ago I used it as an excuse to take a spontaneous weekend trip to one of my favorite places in the world, so I can’t really complain. 26, you’re not looking so bad after all.
