If you would have told me how amazing this year would be for me in 2016, I would have never believed you. I have always talked about travel and seeing the world, but 2017 was my year to take action. I dove deep into the world of travel blogging, and I took advantage of some amazing travel deals. I was adventurous, impulsive, and welcoming to new opportunities, and I can definitely say it paid off. 2017 was a roller coaster to say the least… it was a year full of happiness, love, heartbreak, excitement, and challenges, but most of all it was a year that I truly found myself.
Bonvoyagewithbri.com has opened up my eyes to a lot of events and destinations that I never even knew about in the past. I am so thankful that I have done more research due to my blog, because I have found so many wonderful gems like Buckelew Farm! I came across this farm while researching Halloween events for 2016 in Tucson, AZ. I found that in October they hold a Pumpkin Festival and Corn Maze, as well as a haunt event at night called Terror in the Corn. This past Saturday I attended both events, and had so much fun. If you are in the Tucson area, make sure to take a trip down to Buckelew Farm and enjoy some October festivities.
Old Tucson is the perfect place to go for a western experience, and it has a pretty impressive film history with over 300 movies and TV shows filmed on property! Old Tucson is a must do for people living in or visiting Tucson, AZ. Throughout the month of October, they host an event called Nightfall. This year’s event is from September 29th – October 31st and the entire town becomes a very scary destination. I was lucky enough to attend this year’s event with a very fun group of friends. We made sure to see and do everything to make sure I had all the info to pass onto you!
I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ, and even though I left for college, Tucson is still where I have spent most of my life. Tucson is about 5 hours away from The Grand Canyon, and growing up here meant that for field trips, or weekend trips, that was a place we would visit. As a child I never really understood the beauty, or how amazing The Grand Canyon truly is; I just remember a big hole in the ground. So, a couple of weeks ago I realized I had 5 days off in a row, and came up with the idea to take a solo road trip to The Grand Canyon!
