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.
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.
Mykonos Island was one of the most charming islands we visited during our seven days of island hopping in Greece. From beautiful alleys to restaurants over looking the ocean and the iconic mills, this island was absolutely stunning.
Although spending a few more days would have been ideal, one day was a perfect amount of time to see the main sites on the island and enjoy everything.
When we arrived to Twenty Eight, we were immediately in love with the decor and design. The space was classy yet modern and had such a bold, eclectic feel about it that still remained inviting. The staff greeted us excitedly and gave us the grand tour. Which was quite grand if I do say so myself.
Marrakech is an amazing city to visit. However, after a few days of the busy Moroccan souks, it's really nice to escape the chaos. There are many options when it comes to booking day trips from Marrakech. From the Atlas Mountains and desert to the beautiful town of Essauoira there is so much to see. Even if you're short on time during your travels to Marrakech, taking a day to see something different and learn more about the Moroccan history and culture is worth it.
