Hello fellow travelers! Over the summer, I partnered with the Island of Hawaii Visitor’s Bureau to go on the ultimate trip of a lifetime through the beautiful Island of Hawaii. Today, I am sharing with you the exact itinerary I used for my 6 day road trip. My trip planner, Jourdyn, worked very hard to put this awesome itinerary together for me, and it turned out amazing! Â You can see the article I wrote about the trip here.
As I spent my last few moments in the states, I couldn’t help but find myself savoring the faces of the Americans around me. I knew once I exited the plane I was about to board, everything would be different. I took note of the guy across from me in the camo jacket reading a book. I noticed a girl with bleached blonde hair walk past, wearing a shirt that said “wifey”. I smiled as a little girl in a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt trotted by holding hands with her mother who donned a Disney sweater.
We’ve been in China for almost two weeks! And so far, we are loving our new city. I snapped these shots while walking around town this afternoon. Most of these were taken on the street behind our apartment. I wanted to write about the first 10 realizations I had after being here for just over a week! 1. VIEW.Â The living room in our apartment has an INSANE view of the city. I’m talking skyscrapers, a river, a park- this view is legit.
Things I’ve learned today: This means I love you in chinese ❤️❤️❤️ Ps how cute are these girls?! My first Chinese gal pals! We are the first foreigners they’ve ever met. We helped them w English they helped us w Mandarin. And we ate spaghetti and sung sweet home Alabama 💕 https://t.co/1Tv1s4vAxS
5. Walked down stairs to get a protein shake from the gym’s cafe. They tried to charge my husband $700. Nope. 6. No water fountains. 7. Despite it all, ill be back tomorrow...with blinders on my eyes, water bottle in hand, stronger lungs, and my own protein powder!!! 😭😭😂😂💪🏽
3. Went for a run on the treadmill. 3. Thought I was running the fastest 5 miles of my life. Turns out it was kilometers. 4. By mile three I felt like I was chocking. On my own breath. Because of the dangerous air quality. 4. Pushed through. Not a quitter.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
