This year I was lucky to go on a few adventures with my mom. One of them was a trip to Abu Dhabi and visiting this incredible mosque. The pink abayas we wore to enter it were surprisingly comfortable despite the 40 degrees plus temperature. It was a day of jetlag, stunning architecture, cultural introductions, sweating and lots of laughter. This year has flown by faster than usual and I am completely behind on blogging about this trip and a few others, but I'm so glad to have snagged moments like this throughout. #travelhermagic
Traveling to southern India, there are a few things that have surprised me! ✨
The 3 things I find most beautiful:
Temples. 🙏🏻 I expected them to be beautiful, but it’s hard to describe them in words. The energy felt inside is very moving. ✨
The people. 👫
Of all the places I’ve been, the people here are perhaps the kindest!
It’s been around 80* + sunny every day. My kind of place! 😉 (although it’s winter time here so I probably would melt in their summer!)
Do you typically research details before heading to a destination, or do you just go for it + hope to be surprised?
Simplicity. We walk by things every day that we take for granted. Trees, grass, puddles, lakes, ponds, rivers. Fun challenge. Take more moments to see things, to breathe, to observe. Tell me how it goes for you!

My guitar is my true passport in Spain. It's allowed me to connect with people in so many ways. I've received some of the most kind compliments about my playing while staying at the incredible Sant Jordi Rock Hostel in Barcelona. I've also played with talented and friendly musicians.
The other day, I received a guitar lesson from José "El Pirata", the best flamenco guitarist I've heard during my travels. My intention was to find a brilliant guitarist in technique, emotion, and friendliness, and I found just the new amigo.
From Barcelona to Sevilla, to Granada, to Algeciras and beyond, España rocks 🇪🇸🤘🏼
Start by learning the words most relevant to your basic needs in a new place: food, accommodation, transportation and money. Then master the questions so you can at least eek your way through the rest: 'what', 'where', 'when', and 'how'. Also learn a few words around time - the number of times I've struggled trying to explain 'yesterday', 'now' 'later'...😅 And when all else fails, a translator app is your best friend 👌
This is the I did it for the GRAM shot. I was actually thinking of trying the restaurant but apparently the owners/managers hate that all the tourists come to take photos of the building (from what I read on their responses on #google ) - so I took my business elsewhere. 🥂
What are your thoughts on capturing the perfect Insta moment? I think it’s great for the business..it’s free marketing...but would love to hear your thoughts. 🥂
The building is super adorable though! I am so happy to get a tourist free shot! Which is so difficult in Paris unless you are up super early...which I was way too jet lagged to do 😬 🥂
I actually came across a restaurant that I thought was much cuter but not instafamous so I’ll be posting that soon 🥂

Very few undisturbed Sabal forests remain in Texas. The Sabal Palm Sanctuary just outside of Brownsville, TX is the largest remaining place in the state where you can experience the diverse ecosystem that coevolved with these cool little trees.
