The Countdown Begins… Greece, here I come! 

In only 10 days I’ll be traveling to Greece! Another marvelous country that I’ve been dying to visit for the past two years. It is very exciting to finally make it happen. Originally, I was going to go by myself on a solo traveler adventure but at the very last minute my Mom decided to accompany me on this trip! Words are not enough to express how excited I am. The hotel accommodations and transportation are all set! Now here comes the tedious (yet exciting) section of planning a trip: What to eat, see & do? For the next ten days, I’ll dedicate all my free time to research! This requires a lot of patience but a good research always pays off! Here are some tips on how to start your own research:  Verify your sources! The better the source, the better the advice. I cannot tell you how many articles I’ve read around the web that are not quite right and give tourist the wrong advice. Sources like Lonely Planet or Conde Nast Traveler …

Bogota, a sight for sore eyes!

If I had to choose one photo to describe my weekend getaway to Bogota, it would be this one: I’ve always wanted to visit Bogota and now that my friend Shany lives there, I decided to go. We had an awesome weekend of just brunching, partying and drinking all day long. That’s all we did and it was awesome.

But Bogota is not a city that you visit to go on city tours (I mean you can, definitely), but mostly to enjoy its delicious cuisine in a beautiful setting, enjoy the great nightlife and much more. Bogota’s Street Art    Things To Know: Bogota’s traffic is a nightmare (especially during rush hours between 7am – 9am and 4pm – 7pm.) Make sure you don’t have to head over to the airport between those peak hours or you would be stuck in traffic for an hour and a half. …

Hello from Atlantis!

Let’s talk about my weekend trip to The Bahamas! This trip  was the most relaxed vacation I’ve had in a very long time. Every time I travel somewhere new, I always make sure to take advantage of every minute I have to see or do something new. That being said, my itinerary is always busy. But not this time! It felt SO good to just do nothing for four days and enjoy the beautiful sunny day at the beach or pool, taste a different restaurant every night and party at night. My only sightseeing of Nassau was the route from the Airport to the resort! Basically, didn’t see anything so I have zero advice or tips to give you haha For four days, my body & soul belonged to the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island! My friend Jackie invited me to join her family vacation to celebrate her 24th birthday. Our friend Kristine, Joey (Jackie’s brother) and his girlfriend Steph were part of the gang as well! Our day activities involved going to the water slides, …
