San Francisco is a city filled with breathtaking views and fun vibes. It is the perfect place to go for a weekend or even a couple of days, and you will never be bored. The city has that downtown, coastal and small town feel which can be hard to find in a single location. There are so many things to experience; from outdoor activities, to historical sites, to amazing food… San Francisco has it all.
I have compiled a list of a few of my favorite things to do and some others that I will definitely be hitting up next time I am in San Francisco. Check them out:
Golden Gate Bridge – this is kind of a given, it is the staple of the city and it is just a must see.

I can not even begin to express how in love I am with Tulum. I have seen a couple of Instagram pictures before heading over there and was thinking the place was beautiful. But with Instagram and any pictures in general you are usually taking pictures of the good stuff, but believe me when I tell you every single place in Tulum is absolutely magical and I am obsessed with it now.
I am sitting here writing this post and getting lost in my thoughts thinking of all the incredible places I have seen there. I decided to highlight some of my favorites and my experiences in Tulum. I am not sure if I will even be able to explain it because this is a destination that you just need to go and visit.
Tulum is a city located about an hour and half from Cancun, so it is a bit of a drive to get here. I recommend getting a shuttle beforehand, so that you are not wasting your time trying to get one at the airport and being bombarded by all the vendors.

My favorite type of place has always been something tropical. Now it may be because I was born in a place like that or the fact that I love the water, but there is just something addictive about going to a tropical destination. The mixture of the jungle, the ocean, the palm trees, the fresh food; is what lures me in to these amazing places and it’s what got me to the island of St. Lucia.
St. Lucia is one of the many Caribbean islands and it’s most known for the dramatically tapered mountains, the Pitons. The island has a lot to offer and it is perfect for all types of travelers. If you want to be more adventurous you can hike the Piton mountains, or go chase waterfalls in the jungle. If you loving immersing yourself in the culture, you can take a tour of the chocolate farms or hit up the local festivals. If you love to lounge around, well you’re on an island surrounded by beaches, so what more do you need than that.
Since I fall under all those categories, as I assume most of you do as well, below are some snippets of my incredible time in St. Lucia.

Many of you have heard of Croatia by now. And I may be biased because I was born there, but it is one of the most beautiful countries to visit. It offers breathtaking beaches, cute towns, mountains, and amazing greenery. Along with that comes one of my favorite national parks I have ever been to, Plitvice National Park.
The park is truly magnificent at any time of the year. My favorite time to go is during the summer months, just because you get to experience the beautiful waterfalls. But in the winter you get to be in awe of all the snowy beauty the park has to offer. Whichever season you go, you will not be disappointed.
The park is very big and it could take you hours to go through the whole thing. There are so many beautiful aspects to it that with each corner you can expect a different view. You will get to walk on shaky bridges, feel the breeze from the waterfalls and get some killer views from up the hills as well.
Recommendations: wear comfortable shoes, bring some snacks and a water bottle in case you get hungry (there are no shops throughout the park), and make sure to bring your camera because you will not want to miss these views.
Have you ever been to Plitvice National Park? What are some of your favorite National Parks you have visited?
Happy Travel – xoxo Dre ❤
Breathtaking to say the least. This five city paradise is a perfect one day destination when in Italy.
Now you definitely don’t have to limit yourself to just a day because this charming place can be explored in more than one. But if you are looking for a fun adventure, this is the perfect place to go.
The best part is that there is something for everyone and there is a train to take you through the towns, so you can choose which stops to make.
The Adventurous Type: Adventure is definitely out there. Personally my favorite part of my day trip to Cinque Terre was hiking through the adorable 5 towns. Not only do you get an awesome workout in, but the views along the way are breathtaking. And there are plenty of places to take a break along the way which make for great photo ops.

Talking about Paris is one of my favorite things to do, as it is one of my favorite cities in the world. I have always dreamed about going to Paris and when I finally had the chance to do so, I was in complete awe. Although, I spent a very short time there (a day and a half to be exact); it was one of the greatest experiences I’ve had thus far and I cannot wait to make my way back to the city of love.
Since I was in Paris for a short time, I didn’t get to fully experience it, but luckily I did end up visiting some of the most famous landmarks. Of course, one of my favorites was the Eiffel Tower since it was something I wanted to see ever since I started studying French in Junior High. Paris is huge and is divided by a couple of districts. I was staying in the 7th district; right around where the Eiffel Tower was located. Being able to see it from my hotel was amazing and with a twenty minute walk, I found myself right in front of it. I recommend going to see the Eiffel Tower at night. It lights up and I had absolutely no idea, so I was very shocked but in a positive way and it is just remarkable to see. It is hands down one of my favorite memories. Now make sure you check it out during the day as well, because there are plenty of places to just sit around and enjoy the view.
