Switzerland: How To Do 3 Cities in 3 Days

One of the best last minute decisions I have ever made, was to book a trip to Switzerland only a week in advance. I’m still adjusting to the new European holiday schedule and didn’t realise there was a long weekend coming up, so we went for it! In three days we were able to explore Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen and Oeschinensee. How? Well let me break it down for you. 🙂 Day 1: Land in Switzerland, head to Interlaken We chose to take an early flight into Basel, Switzerland on Friday morning – picked up the rental car and were on our way! The drive from Basel took about 2 hours to the town of Lauterbrunnen where we were staying. It was the cutest and roomiest Swiss chalet apartment. There was a balcony directly facing the famous Staubbach waterfall! Check out the listing on Booking here. (And $20 off your next booking…

A Weekend in Majorca! (Mallorca)

Hey everyone! I have kickstarted my spring/ summer travels this year by going to Majorca (Mallorca) on a bachelorette trip. And it was AH-MAH-ZING! The waters were some of the bluest I’ve ever seen. Spain is definitely one of my favourite countries to visit because I love me some tapas and this island is definitely a gem in the Balearic Sea. If you’re looking for a vacation to just relax and beach bum it, Majorca is the place for you! It’s perfect as a couples getaway, group trip or bachelorette like in my case. So let me break it down how to spend the ultimate weekend in Majorca. How to get around Majorca We chose to rent a car and drive around since it was pretty affordable, about $50 USD for the whole weekend Friday-Monday. But if that’s not an option for you, during peak season public transportation is pretty…

Expat Life In Amsterdam: 3 Month Update!

Earlier this year Kevin and I moved our entire life from California to… THE NETHERLANDS! And for the past three months we have been trying to live our best Expat life in Amsterdam. We’ve been here for just over three months now and so far and, spoiler alert — we love it! How it happened When Kevin and I first started dating I told him that a dream of mine was to experience the nomad life and travel long-term before I could “settle down”. I wanted to really be immersed in a culture other than the Silicon Valley. And luckily he loved the idea! Obviously there is serious prep work needed to make the dream happen — save up money, can we make passive income, and health insurance, etc. The plan originally was to work for a couple years then quit our jobs and travel. Then maybe when we finished…

Three Things to Know When Planning a Trip to the Tulip Festival, Netherlands

The tulip fields are now a super popular tourist attraction every year so here are three things you MUST know when planning a trip to see them. When, How, and What to do on your visit. I am so happy that I was able to see the gorgeous tulip fields in the Netherlands in person and WOW they were so pretty! Not only are there tulips — but also orchids, dahlias and daffodils. When To Visit The best time to visit the tulip fields honestly depends on what you want to see. If you want to view them with less crowds I suggest earlier on in the season (early April). However, at this time not all of the flowers may be blooming/ open although they are still super pretty. I do NOT recommend visiting Easter weekend as that is a holiday in Europe and peak time for tourists in the…

Budapest Guide: 5 Beautiful Things To Do

It’s been awhile since my trip to Budapest but I was going through the photo archives and realized I have so much to share from that trip! To be honest, when we first arrived we were super turned off because of the situation with our accommodation host and ended up scrambling to find last minute housing. BUT ANYWAYS! We tried not to let that ruin our trip and ended up enjoying what beauty the city has to offer. My Top 5 Sights in Beautiful Budapest Fishermans Bastion The Fishermans Bastion was my favorite favorite and in my opinion the most beautiful sight to see and see FROM in Budapest. You can see it’s a photographers dream location. From the white stone and the great views of the city — we spent a good amount of time here. Tip: be sure to get here before the crowds arrive. We got to…
