Before heading to Mexico City, pretty much everyone I asked for recommendations RAVED about Mexican street food. “Eat ALL the street tacos!” “Try everything you come across in the markets!” “Don’t hold back!” Just a few of the many enthusiastic responses I received… Needless to say, all this hype got me pretty pumped up. I’m not ususally one to discriminate or play favorites when it comes
Before going to Colombia, I received tons of rave reviews from other travelers. Everyone attested to the fact that Colombia was a captivating country full of colorful culture, welcoming people and incredible history. All who had visited Colombia had completely fallen in love. Actually, out of all the travelers I talked to, Colombia was most people’s favorite stop in all of South America. BUT, the
Argentina- land of the cows and home to the meat eaters. There’s no place for vegetarians in Argentina. In this country, carnivore is king. Any decent foodie knows the famed reputation of a quality grass-fed Argentinean steak. It’s a culture known for its dedication to the art of red meat.

Welcome to Wanderful Wednesday friends! Don’t forget to link up a wanderful travel related post down below! 😀 Today I’m going to be talking a little bit about Asheville, North Carolina, a city that’s been on my mind a lot lately.

As we all know, travel in the US isn’t the easiest and is usually on the expensive side, so for me, taking advantage of time down here is crucial.
EVERYONE I’ve spoken to has raved about Rome. Tourists. Locals. Its history. Its culture. Its sights. Its food. Unfortunately, I have to say, I just didn’t get it. My first trip to Rome left a weird taste in my mouth, literally and figuratively. Maybe it’s my fault, as I guiltily admit, I didn’t do enough research beforehand. During our short trip it was hot, crowded and dirty.
Before visiting Istanbul, I had absolutely no idea what Turkish cuisine entailed. I was a little disappointed that the foodie in me had let this Mediterranean [or was it Middle Eastern?] style cuisine slip by with little notice. Oh right! I have had a doner kebab. If you’ve spent any time in Europe, I’m sure you’ve heard of these doner kebabs as stands selling
A few weekends ago I finally made it to Porto, Portugal, a city that’s been resting on the top of my bucket-list since I came to Europe last year! At such a close proximity and with many transportation methods available, Portugal makes the perfect weekend trip from Spain. It is also a great valued destination with amazing cuisine, glorious sandy beaches and lively nightlife. Seriously Portugal,
