Oh Sydney, you show-off! And I love it. ✨
Love rediscovering all the little corners of this city that make me wonder why I ever left... 💫 —————
If you saw my last post on top things to do in Bondi, you’ll love my next list on my fave things to do in Sydney (yes, there’s a world outside Bondi!)
Top 5 things to do in Sydney:
1. Visit @watsonsbayboutiquehotel Watson’s Bay beach and beer gardens. It’s a gorgeous quiet beach and easy to swim. The beer gardens are great fun and amazing views, perfect spot for lunch.
2. Seaplane from Rose Bay - if you really want to understand how beautiful this city is see it from Birdseye view
3. Dinner @catalinarosebay - exceptional food, amazing experience
4. Potts Point - I love this area, great coffee shops and restaurants like @fratellifresh
5. @thegrounds - amazing space for eating and events

Did you know that Marrakech is called the Red city⠀
In fact the buildings and the plazas are made out of orange-red clay. Moreover, during sunset the colour changes and seems to blanket the whole cityscape. ⠀
In la Mamounia, one of the most iconic hotels in Marrakech, you will be dazzled by the architecture.⠀
Thank you @lamamounia we were spoiled.⠀
Saviez-vous que Marrakech s'appelait la ville rouge⠀
En fait, les bâtiments et les places sont faites à partir d'argile rouge orangé. De plus, au coucher du soleil, la couleur change et se fond dans tout le paysage. ⠀
A la Mamounia, l'un des hôtels les plus emblématiques de Marrakech, vous serez éblouis par l'architecture but not only.⠀

Merci @lamamounia de nous avoir gâtées.

While my husband likes art, he can only handle so much. I however, can never get enough of it. We have gotten to the point where I send him off to an all day cooking class so I can bounce from one museum to another and while hitting some of my favorite shops along the way. The Cappelle Medicee is one of my favorites. There is so much to see and the first time or two, it is overwhelming.

29 and feeling absolutely fine... So, two weeks ago, I bought a book called “The Defining Decade- Why your twenties matter”— because I was sort of freaking out about entering the last year of my twenties. But, my dog ate it- no lie. And I was mad because I thought this book would tell me all the things I NEEDED to know before the next year was over. But you know what I don’t need a damn book.
I have learned, lived and loved so incredibly much in my twenties and I still have a year left! I’ve learned that not every story has to be beautiful to be a good story. Not every love has to be everlasting to be true. Life is extremely confusing, hard and messy. But it is also so beautiful and exciting.
I’ve learned it’s perfectly okay to make it all up as you go along. It’s ok to think about the past, especially the moments in your life that made you smile. It’s more than okay to not have a step by step guide to tell you what to do next. You should choose the nervous energy you feel deep in your chest when you are about to embark on an adventure to a new place. Choose the lump in the back of your throat when you are giving someone your heart. Choose the uncertainty and discomfort. Choose the freedom in knowing that you’re going to screw it all up— multiple times— and embrace all the lessons you’ll learn from the mistakes.
Remain curious. Remain unconfined. Don’t seek the answers- be surprised with what happens next.
Most importantly, love yourself. You absolutely cannot have true friendships and deep loving relationships if you don’t love yourself first. Take everything with a grain of salt- especially tequila. And remember how blessed you are-all the time- with everything you have. Thank you to everyone who’s ever taught me something. Thank you for all the birthday wishes. And thank you @rainbowsalt for these words! Love you 💕🌟 #tulummexico #happybirthday #dametravel #traveltagged #beautifulmatters

They say:”Another year older another year wiser” well... I guess we’ll see 🥰

This is a picture I took in Rome when I was on a walking tour on a stopover on our cruise.
Rome is somewhere I would really like to go back to and explore further😍
The only thing - when we were there it was SUPER busy and depending on my mood, that might be too overwhelming at times😅 it was also SUPER hot the day we were there (August) so I would consider going back around Easter time🤷🏻♀️
- where would you like to go back to🌎
Rediscovering joy 🦋
Never under estimate the power of being by the water and how good it can make you feel 💫
If you’ve been following my Sydney instastories, you would have noticed I just can’t keep away from the gorgeous seaside walks. The energy of the water makes me feel so good. You realise nothing else has changed in your world, no new car, bag, house... it’s just you and nature. To appreciate living in the moment and breathing in that fresh sea air, brings joy.
Are you a seaside or countryside fan
Feeling those spring time vibes Don’t you want to roll around in these fields 🌼 #traveltuesday here we come! 🧳
It’s almost my Birthday and I’m so excited to party with friends and my beloved ones ❤️
Can’t wait for it ✨
Going to Pompeii and the Herculaneum to see the ruins with all of the beautiful preserved artwork was impressive. Hiking up to Mount Vesuvius and seeing the stem rising from it, finding the red volcanic rock, and finding out how light and airy it was really cool and surprising.
In your travels, what have you seen that has surprised you the most

When I was a little kid, I fell in ❤️ with London and this beautiful building. My mom got a grandfather clock and I would drag a chair over to it, when nobody was home, to change the chime to “Big Ben”. It got it to the point that nobody in the house could sleep with any other chime.
When I was a teenager, I was given the opportunity to go backpacking across Europe for the summer. My dad said I could go with 1 stipulation: I had to go to London or I was not allowed to come home. 😄
What county or city captured your 💖 that started your wanderlust

I woke up super grumpy this morning, but some chocolate and happy vibes fixed it all. 🍫✨
Never let negativity take over, always look for the best part of your day/life and feel happy for it ❤️
This picture is full of joy and looking at it made me feel better.
So with this pic I wish you a great Sunday full of positivity and love 🌹
Milan baby 💕
So in love with the Duomo ✨ I think is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Italy 💕 don’t you
Several years ago, when we planned our trip from Ornskoldsvik to Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, Google maps showed that it would take 6 hours to get there. We did this in September and did not take into account the March weather. It ended up taking us 12 hours to get there instead due to there being about an inch of ice on the road for 200 miles. The really fun part was when we almost slid into a reindeer standing in the middle of the road. I couldn’t stop laughing and my husband white knuckled it the rest of the way to Jukkasjärvi.
What we got out of this is that while we can plan ahead (and far ahead like we normally do) we need to double check certain things like travel time as it gets closer to the trip to avoid weather / time issues like this. 😄

We can’t go to Italy without going to the Cinque Terre. Our favorite hotel offers the most amazing views of the Mediterranean and in recent years they now have wine tastings at night. If you want amazing seafood pulled out of the water that morning, pesto, great hiking, beautiful sea views and a relaxing vacation come here.
DO NOT miss the Pirate Café, on the backside of town near the parking lot! The brothers are so extremely nice and their food is amazing (any time of day)!!!!
