Well, here I am at the ripe age of 26 and I found myself smelling way too much of that Fierce cologne trying to find the perfect pair of high-waisted denim shorts for our trip to Mexico. I had seen another blogger wearing these super cute shorts and when I found out they were from Abercrombie, I was like, “eww”, then I realized I need to stop being so prematurely judgy and just try them out. When you need shorts in a pinch, you do what you gotta do.
If you’ve been thinking about traveling to Tulum, then you know that the hardest part about planning this gorgeous getaway is finding the perfect spot to stay. I think I spent two weeks going through Airbnb listings before settling on Nahouse. Also, things go quick, so waiting too many weeks to book your stay isn’t recommended!
The Maldives is one of those few places that blow your expectations out of the water. One couldn't possibly dream up a paradise as gorgeous as these 1,100+ islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The amazing teal colored water, palm trees perfectly placed on gorgeous islands, fresh fish caught daily, and sunshine 365 days of the year -- it's pure bliss.
Chefchaouen, the Blue Pearl of Morocco, has topped my list of places to see for quite some time now. I've been mesmerized by the beautiful blue buildings, small streets, and colorful culture that Chefchaouen provides. As a photographer, it's one of those dream places that you really cannot take too many photos of. Walking through the blue streets, I had to stop myself and soak it all in from time to time. It's truly one of the most gorgeous cities I've seen in person.
We drove to Snoopers rock after a long work day and arrive 1 hour before sunset. We didn’t really have a plan; per usual. However, we just winged it and it all worked out. We camped out at Davis Pond and it was pretty busy (granted it was Labor Day weekend). Next time we go, we’ll try to hike to our camping spot so it’s more quiet, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy campsite I definitely recommend David Pond.
Mother Goose Hotel located in Utrecht, the Netherlands is one of the dreamiest and coziest places I've stayed in to date. Upon arriving to this small, boutique hotel in the heart of Utrecht, I knew I was going to fall in love. This chic space feels like a super trendy B&B with modern amenities, lots of privacy, and such a unique flare.
Paros Palace set the bar high (like really, really high) for the rest of our trip in Greece. Just a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride from the Paros Port, Paros Palace sits on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean and the mountains nearby. The views are absolutely breathtaking as you can see in the photos above and that's just one of the many perks of this little oasis overlooking the Aegean Sea.
We said goodbye to Germany and our little life there last month and moved back to the States. If any of you have ever moved (whether it was down the street or to a totally new place) you know it's always bittersweet. Excitement for the new adventure, but lots of sadness when it comes to saying goodbye and closing such a big chapter.
