The Quaint Turkish Village of Adatepe || Turkey Destination Highlight

I remember when I first wandered this quaint village. It was autumn and we had scarves on and the fallen leaves from the trees crunched as we walked down the rugged paths that led through the village homes. “This place would be ADORABLE to visit, or stay, in the summer!!...

Riding a Traghetto in Venice is AWESOME || Italy Travel Experience

It’s iconic. We also see the canals FULL of tourists in their gondolas. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful. But….I tend to go with the less “typical” ways to experience local life.   That’s why I was all about finding the traghetto station on the Grand Canal and try it out for...

La Botica De Le Abuela Aladdin – Chefchaouen || Morocco Destination Hightlight

Chefchaouen’s Souk || Morocco Travel Experience

One of the things I notice when I travel is that the best way to REALLY get the feel of a place is to visit their local market. It is here that you will see the locals, see the produce they are selling and see how real life is among the place you are in. It was no different when...

How I pack for 12 days with just a carry-on || Travel Tips

I never in a million years thought I could travel for 12+ days with a simple carry-on bag. What if I forgot something? What if I needed this? Or that? No, I couldn’t do it, I thought. With traveling becoming more a part of my lifestyle for business and pleasure, I decided it was...
