French Polynesia: Beyond Paradise

Johnny and I have always wanted to visit the French Polynesian islands. We just couldn’t believe we’d got to visit so soon! I posted a post way back when about an amazing deal he found to fly there from Los Angeles. It was a steal truly! Ever since then, all we could dream of is our return one day. We bounced from island to island and stayed a little over a week. We visited the main 3 islands, Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora. If I could pick a favorite, it would definitely be Bora Bora! Our goal next time…

Santorini Guide: Dreams of White and Blue

Santorini, one of many Cycladic islands in the Aegean Sea, is one of the most popular destinations in Greece. Its beautiful beaches, dramatic ocean views, luxury hotels, white washed walls and blue domes have made it a famous vacation spot for many international tourists. Despite the crowds of people during peak season, the local charm of Santorini and its stunning beauty will surely have you packing your bags too! For reference, I went the beginning of October and it was still quite busy but not as packed as summer would be. The weather during the day was warm and…

Checking In: Nizuc Resort & Spa, Cancun

Before the holidays, I was fortunate enough to be able to stay at the Nizuc Resort & Spa and visit the pink lakes in Mexico. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, visit my post about it here.

There are many pink lakes around the world (Lake Hillier in Australia, Dusty Rose Lake in Canada and Lake Reba in Senegal) just to name a few. Like I mentioned before, the lakes are 3 hours from our resort in Cancun. I highly recommend anyone who is…

Dreamy Pink Lakes in Mexico: Las Coloradas

On my most recent trip to Mexico, Los Coloradas was definitely on my list. Have you ever seen photos of pink lakes and wondered if they were real? I knew upon booking my trip to Cancun had to include the 3 hour drive to discover the amazing salt lakes of Las Coloradas. Las Coloradas is incredibly easy to get to. Though if you’ll be driving, bring some pesos with you to pay the toll. It was about 300pesos each way to pass the toll, which is quite expensive in my opinion. The factory is about 3 to 3.5 hours…

Mykonos Travel Guide: Traveling Off Season

Many of you have seen my posts on Instagram on my recent trip to Greece. Johnny and I decided to go off season to miss the crowds of people that are normally there in the summer months. For reference, we went the first week of October into mid October which is considered to still be shoulder season in the Cyclades. We visited 3 beautiful islands: Mykonos, Milos and Santorini. All of which will have there own post coming up soon! But before leaving, I found it difficult to find information regarding travels in the shoulder seasons such as ferry…
