I spent ages searching for the perfect pair of travel pants to bring on our year-long backpacking trip. What I quickly found was every pair of men’s travel pants falls into two categories: there’s the baggy pants with elephants on them, and then there’s the baggy pants with 86 cargo pockets & 53 zippers. But then, finally, I found 3 pairs of men’s travel pants that are EXACTLY what I wanted. They’re functional, techincal, and not hideous! These are the only 3 pairs of men’s travel pants you’ll need.
Traveling with your partner is one thing. Long term travel with your partner? That’s like, a whole other, totally different, completely not the same thing. My husband and I spent a whole year traveling the world together as a couple …and lived to tell the tale! We’re even still happily married, I swear. It can absolutely be done, and it’s an incredible and enriching experience for any relationship. But … there are a FEW things that nobody told us about before we jetted off on our around-the-world trip. And so, to prepare/warn you, we’re laying it alllllll out.

Indiana is a state full of surprises. In this one (very tall) Midwestern state, you can find sugar sand beaches, lakeside resorts, giant sand dunes, ancient burial grounds, ski resorts, German villages, and vineyards. Pretty impressive for just one state, right? I am a proud Hoosier (AND a proud Kentuckian – a rare coexistence). I LOVED attending college in Bloomington – my personal favorite destination in Indiana, centrally located within a several hours drive of many amazing Indiana getaways. I explored Indiana on weekends and holidays, venturing as far north as the South Shore and as far south as Evansville. From the northern shoreline of Lake Michigan to the southern border with my hometown on the Ohio River, Indiana is filled with hidden gems to explore. Here are 8 of my favorite weekend getaways in Indiana!
