Dear Flight Takers, Here Are Reasons Why You Need To Schedule Your First Cruise

Dear Flight Takers, Here Are Reasons Why You Need To Schedule Your First Cruise

Visit multiple locations, Entertainment, and All-inclusive. Enjoy!

Traveling...we all want to do it, right?

I mean, who doesn't want to see the world?

Only weirdo's, I guess.

Well, traveling is loads of fun and there are so many people that save up tons of money to travel hundreds of places!

But it's time to trade those plane tickets in for a week cruise and I am here to tell you why!

1. Multiple Locations

When it comes to travel, most people take a flight to the destination they want to see and then drive around from there or take another flight to the next place. Cruising saves you all that struggle and hassle! Once you get on a cruise, you don't have to worry about getting to your next place and paying for another ticket to go elsewhere. You are able to sail to nearly three to five places in one week, seeing multiple locations, cultures, and faces. This allows you to see many new places that would be difficult to see on land.

2. Entertainment

I don't remember the last time I went on a flight and got to watch a whole two hour live theatre show of "Hairspray". Yeah, that's probably because they don't offer it. Unlike planes, when taking a cruise you have the option to watch shows at sea. Many cruise lines offer full shows such as comedies, musicals, game shows, and even circus acts! The last ship I went on, I saw a man throwing knives at his wife spinning in the air... Crazy, right?

Not only are there shows offered on the ship but there are also many games you can participate in to just have a good laugh or make some memories. Cruises host several games such as, "The Hairy Leg Competition", "Around The Boat: Scavenger Hunt" and "Karaoke". The list is endless, you literally can't fit everything into your schedule because they offer so much. I can assure you that you won't ever get bored when you are onboard!

3. All-Inclusive

Instead of having to worry about where to eat in this new city you traveled to. Or how many pesos/euros/pounds/etc... you need to buy lunch. Just take a cruise, and you won't have to think twice about this! Most cruises offer all-inclusive stay. This means that food and drinks on the ship are included in the price paid.

You no longer have to think about money or even time! Cruises tend to have a restaurant or two open for 24 hours. Making things so much easier for you and your travel mates, not having to search where to find food at 2 AM in some new town.

So as you can see, no time is wasted on any cruise. You can slip down a slide, hit the bar, relax in the sauna, or even catch some rays... all which you can not do on a plane, train, or car!

There is obviously just so much to do on a cruise that you must take on to see for yourself!

To The Girl Who Hasn't Been Herself Lately

Your spark return, and you will shine like you were meant to.

Life gets tough. Life gets too much to handle sometimes, and those times make you stronger. However, right now, it seems like you have lost yourself.

It’s difficult when you catch yourself not being you. When you do something or act a certain way and just wonder, “what did I do to deserve this? Why is this happening? When will it get better?” The way you’re feeling is not so much that you’re unhappy, you just feel weird.

Your day will come. I promise you. This is just a phase.

The day you realize how much you have grown from this point in time will be your reward. It is so hard to see now, and I feel your pain.

Your light will return to you. Your pure bliss moments, they are seeking you. Your laughter where your tummy aches is in your reach.

Our moods change far too often for us as humans to understand why, but the encounters you make every day have this effect on us.

You must remember the pure happiness you experienced before your first heartbreak, before the first friend became someone you thought they weren’t, before you lost your innocence. That was a time of true joy as you had not a care in the world for the things that would harm you. Better yet, you didn’t have the option to experience them because you were just a child.

The world can be an ugly place, and your attitude towards life can change every day. One thing is for certain: you did not lose who you are internally. We all put on a face for the world. For the people who we try to impress. For the life we want to live. For the things we want to achieve.

Your definitive personality is still in the works. Believe it or not, it always will be. Times like this change us for the better even though we can’t see it.

Your happiness will return. You will be a better, stronger version of you. In fact, you will be the best version of you yet.

Once this phase is over, you will be okay. This I promise you.

9 Things To Do In Nashville If You Have No Idea What To Do

Trust me, I was just as lost as you are.


Nashville is a great place packed full of lots of really cool smaller great places that all offer their own unique take on the city. If you're like me, though, and have a hard time ~planning ahead~, then this list is exactly what you need. I went around and got lost and tried all the coolest hidden gems in Nashville so you don't have to. Here are some of my faves.

1. Milk & Honey Nashville

Located in the Gulch, Milk & Honey is the coffee shop/cafe from my dreams. It's decorated perfectly for any cute insta story and y'all when I say their coffee is amazing I mean it. Try it. It's so worth it, and pretty easy to find, too! You can browse their menus here.

2. Frothy Monkey Coffee Shop

While we're on the topic of coffee shops, Frothy Monkey is a MUST try. Trust me, I've drunk A LOT of coffee in my lifetime, and theirs is up in the top 10 of the best. They have other good things too, but if you're a coffee person like me, this place is heaven, I promise. It's right off 12th Avenue and within walking distance of lots of other funky little shops.

3. Two Old Hippies

This is the coolest little shop you will ever go into. Tucked away in the Gulch, it's within walking distance of Milk & Honey, so stop by after you grab a coffee and browse. They have everything from handmade clothes to cool books to refrigerator magnets. This is one of my all time favorites and I know you'll love it too.

4. Baked on 8th


I fell in love the second I saw the cute sign. Baked on 8th has a great atmosphere and even better little pastries, cookies, and cakes. Their cookies were so good it took every ounce of self-control I had to not go back and order 2 dozen. 12/10 would recommend if you're into Instagrammable locations and bomb sugar-filled desserts.

5. Burger Republic

I get it, you've gotta eat more than just cookies and coffee. As far as restaurants go, this place is home to the best burger I've ever eaten, plus the atmosphere is pretty laid back and great, and it's an awesome place to go and watch pretty much any sporting event happening anywhere relatively close to Nashville. Browse the menu so you can know exactly what to order before you even get there here.

6. Fido

In case you haven't noticed yet, I'm a HUGE fan of coffee shops and cafes. Fido was the most perfect little spot. It boasts about its gourmet coffee and great food, and rightfully so. It's also got the coolest funky vibe that makes you just want to sit and stay all day, and it's in a great location and decently close to Vanderbilt.

7. Go see some murals

Nashville is FULL of these bad boys. I know y'all have all seen the countless pictures of those people with big butterfly wings. Well, there's more and they're all around the city and on the side of pretty much every building. It's cliche, but tbh it's also kind of a must do while you're there.

8. Walk around Centennial Park and the Parthenon

This is a really nice place to visit if you're looking to spend a couple of hours away from the concrete of the city, and the Parthenon is a full-scale replica of the one in Greece.

9. Ride one of those little scooters around and explore


I'm not gonna lie to y'all. I did not ride the scooters. They seem kind of dangerous and I know without a doubt that if I tried to get on one it would not end well for me, the scooter, or anyone within a 3-mile radius. With that being said, though, I did see a lot of people riding them and it looked pretty fun, plus it's a great way to see the city without walking too much. So if you just want to explore, hop on one of these bad boys and pray.

Nashville is a great city full of tons of tourist attractions and amazing musical history, but if you find yourself stuck with nothing to do for a couple of hours before your next walking tour, you're sure to find something on this list that you'll love. So, you're welcome.
