The Cliffs of Moher: What To Expect

The Cliffs of Moher – a must visit when in Ireland! Something you definitely don’t want to miss. There are multiple travel agencies that offer a day tour to the Cliffs of Moher from Dublin. All are basically the same: you get onto a bus for four hours as you cross to the other side of the country and give you the right amount of time to explore the cliffs on your own. After the tour is over, they take you for lunch at a restaurant in a nearby town. After lunch, they take you to discover hidden gems in rural Ireland. 1 2 3 4 What To Expect. The weather in Ireland is bipolar. There could be a clear blue sky and five minutes later it could be pouring rain with a very cloudy sky.  That being said, be prepared. Bring everything you think you might need for this outdoor activity, such as: an umbrella, a scarf, gloves, a hair tie, sunglasses etc. Closer to the Cliffs, the strong winds get out of control. …

Many people pass on opportunities for many reasons, one of them being fear. Through my life I’ve encounter many people that forget to live the present for something that might not even happen in the future. If you are constantly waiting for the right time to finally do something, like fulfill your life dream, you are going to spend most of your life waiting. My name is Mariella and I created this blog as a source of inspiration for others to believe they can live the life they always pictured. The secret? Believe you can and take action.

Chicago – The Windy City!

Today I decided to blog about my visit to Chicago, The Windy City! A quick trip through memory lane from my travels in 2013.  Four years ago, before deciding to travel the world full-time, I visited my dearest friend Cristi Romero. Like myself at the time, she was attending Loyola University in Chicago at the time.  When you are young the best advice I can give to a college student is to visit ALL your friends  in college. I used to have a blast and met a lot of interesting people that today I can call friends. That being said, my friend Cristi made sure I had an epic experience during my short 3-day visit! 🙂    I remember being so excited for my weekend getaway. Mostly because I was going to visit a new city for the first time and also two of our friends from High School got to join us as well.  Imagine six girls sleeping in a college dorm… There were suitcases and mattresses all over the apartment, it was a mess but …

From Little Havana to Havana, Cuba

(DISCLAIMER: To all my Cuban-Americans friends, this is not a political post and has nothing to do with my personal opinion regarding the revolution and its history. This post just narrates what I saw, did and listened from locals during my short-visit to Cuba) Introduction Over the past six years, I’ve heard multiple stories of Cuba from my Cuban-Americans friends living in Miami. Each story, whether positive or negative, is what triggered my curiosity. I always wanted to see with my own eyes how locals live in the present. I once heard: “Cuba was the Paris of the Caribbean”, and from my experience I 100% agree with this statement. Havana is as beautiful as any major city in Europe! The revolution indeed changed a lot and it’s sad to see how locals live with some sort of “limitation” in life. In Cuba, you can dream big but your dreams will most likely be shattered. To make a difference in this world, you must find a way to get yourself out the island. If not, you …

Santorini in 30 Epic Pictures

What can I say about Santorini? When a place is this beautiful, just take a deep breath and take a moment to realize that you are about to discover one of the most beautiful places in the world. As soon as I got off the ferry, I looked up towards the sky and couldn’t believe how tall the rocks were. Did you know Santorini was built on top of the island’s volcanic rock? Fira and Oia are Santorini’s main towns you must visit. Both towns are just breathtaking! My hotel was located in the heart of Fira, but I wish I stayed in Oia at least one night to experience what it’s like to live in one of Santorini’s traditional houses. Each town has it’s own architectural gem! A similar taste but different at the same time. The construction of the houses comes from the same idea, but built differently. The golden hour is something you don’t want to miss. If you can, admire the sunset every day. The view is just breathtaking! I’ve never …
