I think most people can relate to this situation. You’re in a beautiful location, on the trip of a lifetime, and the scenery in front of you is just breath-taking. The colors are so vivid, the details are incredible, and you can barely believe what you’re experiencing. You pick up your camera to take a photo so that you can remember this moment and everything you’re seeing. Then, later on, you scroll through the photos you took in that moment, and realize that none of them do it ANY justice. One’s blurry, a hand made its way into another, and the colors are so… muted.

Here are my top tips on how to look stylish while traveling. View Full Post
I’m not a fan of Paris. There, I said it. But I have visited other parts of France and felt differently. I spent six days in Pays de la Loire’s Nantes for a travel blogging conference, and although I had never even heard of this French city, it’s found a place on my list of suggestions for off-beat places to visit in Europe. If you want to experience a French city without the hoards of tourists and ridiculously high prices, head to Nantes and do these five things while you’re there.
