The Best Photo Spots In Dubrovnik

A few years ago I saw a photo of Dubrovnik on Pinterest for the first time and knew I had to visit this place one day. I finally made it a reality this past June and wow, did it blow me away! Dubrovnik is nothing short of a photographer’s dream. The medieval fort with towering […]

Guide to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abu Dhabi

In all my travels I’ve gotten to visit quite a few mosques, and each one of them has been so beautiful and unique in their own way! But I am going to make a claim that the Sheikh Zayed in Abu Dhabi might just be the world’s most beautiful mosque. When we had a layover […]

What to Do On Your Dubai Layover

If you’re flying Emirates, there’s a good chance you’ll have a layover in Dubai. The owners of the world-famous airline company are the same owners of Dubai World, so they’ve got a big interest in getting lots of tourists to visit. For layovers longer than a few hours, you’ve got enough time to explore this […]

First Time Guide To Egypt

I was first awed in Egypt, not by the pyramids or the ancient history, but by the traffic. “It’s like video game driving, except you only get one life,” joked our driver as we headed to in Giza. Our first day in Giza started with a homemade breakfast on the beautifully-designed rooftop of our Airbnb. […]

Peru: My 2 Week Itinerary

Peru… a country filled with so much diversity. From one day to the next you can go from the big city to vast desert, rainbow colored mountains, and one of the Wonders of the World – Machu Picchu! This makes Peru a great travel destination for anyone looking for adventure and amazing landscapes. But making […]

Honeymoon Safari in Kenya

Day 1 We landed at Jomo Kenyatta Airport at 4:30 a.m., exhausted after a 36-hour layover in Morocco. On the long drive to Wildebeest Eco Camp, we had the chance to chat with our driver about the upcoming World Cup, recommendations for where to go on our first day in Nairobi, and the mischievous thieving […]

Hostel Review: Puerto Dreams, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca

If the only beaches that come to mind when you think of Mexico are Cancun and Cabo, then you’re missing out! As of now, my favorite beach town in Mexico is Puerto Escondido, on the West Coast in the state of Oaxaca. Puerto Escondido is most widely known for its surf and hippie vibe, but […]

Why We Left the US and Moved to Mexico

I am so excited to share my story and although I’m sure this post might stir up some debate, I know many of you will share my feelings and hopefully gain some new perspective on a country that is so often portrayed in a false light. The story begins with van life, which my husband […]
