Hello everyone! At the beginning of May I drove from Tampa, FL to Oakdale, MN and along the way, we stopped in Birmingham, AL; Nashville, TN; and St. Louis, MO.

So, what could someone possibly do in only six hours in a brand new city? More than you think! Below is the list of everything we saw, ate, and did on the sunny Saturday in May.

The Ultimate London Bucket List

Hey everyone! In case you didn’t know, I’m going to study abroad in London for one month this summer and I am so excited, especially because this is my first time out of the country.
