Today I had the privilege of speaking at the LA Travel & Adventure show on my favorite topic- authentic, local travel! I know it sounds cliched but truly exploring our world & sharing it gives me the greatest joy. 🤗
Talking about the ‘10 destinations that I think travelers need to go to now’ was not only deeply personal but really gratifying. At the end, several people came up to me, asking me to spell out names of cities or help them choose a tour operator. Some even said that they are now going to one of my recommended places. That direct impact is so rewarding & something that can get lost through just sharing videos & photos. 🌍 At the end of the day, I hope that some of my experiences help other’s travel a little bit better. To me, that’s the point of it all, right?

That’s my floating home in the background! 🚢 See why my European sail with @vikingcruises sold me on cruising in my new video (⛓in profile). Hint: it had something to do with the food...

Ps. I hit 3 million views on Youtube! 🤯🎉 So astounded! Thank you for watching the adventure 🙌🏼

Every day’s objective: experience a newest Mediterranean city to the fullest. And guess what? Every day was a VERY good day. I live for days like that.
•
I am excited to share this video that I think captures a little bit of that European magic that we felt on our 7 day cruise- with stops at some of the world’s best cities. Onboard, on land or floating in this infinity pool & gazing at France, it was all perfect. I don’t think I’d change a thing about this journey.

Give it a watch (link in profile) & let me know what you think of cruising below. 🚢⚓️ My opinions were certainly changed!

Is it a bike? Is it a rickshaw? I have no idea what exactly this “surrey” vehicle is but I do know that I’ve only seen them in Santa Barbara & they are so ridiculous that I LOVE them. We pedaled (slowly) up and down the Santa Babs beach this past weekend, with necessary stops for fish tacos & ocean plunges. We took the @amtrak #CoastStarlight 🚂 up so we were car-less and this made perfect sense. (Maybe not to Dave who did most of the pedaling while I giggled & took photos 🤫) When in SB, right? #weekendgetaway #traintravelisthebest

Sometimes all you need is a good seat ✌🏽

This weekend, I plan to find a good seat and sit in it—instead of running around at 💯 mph like usual. I’ve had the flu 🤒 all week so my normal “turbo” energy levels have been completely wiped out. I am finally starting to come back from the depths💀 & be ready for a romantic, weekend getaway, just up the coast. 💕Valentine’s Day REDO! 
#WeekendGoals: rest, relaxation, tacos 🌮 & sea air. Good thing we are taking the @Amtrak so NO driving hassle involved 🙅🏼‍♀️! Any guesses where we are heading? It is only 2.5 hours by train 🚂 from LA!
