Chile? Cool.

Standard

Hello beautiful people!

Chile has been getting some positive publicity lately and promoting tourism within their borders. Being a supporter of all things travel, I figured I would help them with their promotion; plus, I think these sort of information tidbits are beneficial to any travel bug 😀

  1. Beaches. With thousands of miles of coastline, Chile is almost a country entirely of coastline.
  2. Desert. In northern Chile, there exists San Pedro de Atacama with awe-inspiring skies.
  3. Patagonia. I don’t think I have to say more. Just know in southern Chile, Patagonia = awesome.
  4. Art. Specifically, street art in Valparaiso; it’s badass.
  5. Food. Need I say more? A wide array with amazing flavors. Try it all.
  6. People. Good people are quintessential to a positive travel experience. Apparently, Chileans are just that.
  7. Sandboarding. It’s on my life to-do list, why not add it to yours?

That’s all I’ve got right now. I just made these ah-mazing plant/veggie burgers so stay tuned for a recipe and pictures at some point! I love when healthy tastes good.

Baby Loves –

I don’t know if I 100% agree with this list I stumbled across, but they boast to have compiled the top 10 trips to take within your lifetime, and who am I to keep that information to myself? Travel bug problems.

Regardless of if you agree, these destinations are sweet.

  1. Iceland
  2. Great Wall of China
  3. Taj Mahal
  4. Giza, Egypt
  5. Iguazu Falls, Argentina
  6. Angkor Wat, Cambodia
  7. Grand Canyon, Arizona
  8. Eiffel Tower, France
  9. Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
  10. Italy

I’ve only been to France and Italy from the above, so it looks like I have some things to see.

Back to work for me – enjoy the rest of your Thursday my dears!

Arizona Escapade

Standard

Bonjour mes beaux ❤

As you may know, a few weeks ago I took a trip out west to Tucson, Arizona to visit a former co-worker turned friend, and since I still owe info on my NYC trip, I figured this would be a good bone to throw.

Even their trash cans are artsy!

Let me start off by saying that downtown Tucson is a place I would not mind spending some extended time. I loved the local, up-cycle and unique vibe it was giving off, and there seemed to be plenty to keep all sorts occupied, including decent music. Also, there are rocks *swoons*.

The nature is pretty wild out here. I never knew 1) cacti could get so big and 2) a cactus forest was something that existed. Super cool! Peep the pictures for some amateur shots I took on our hike up Mount Lemmon. It was pretty wild to start out the trek at the bottom of the mountain with a cactus forest, then end it at the top with an evergreen forest and lots of snow on the ground.

The food here is pretty tasty, too. I had my first In-N-Out experience, so I can say I’ve experienced what everyone talks so much about. I mean, I wasn’t a fan of all the fast food chains, but there were enough local and healthier cuisine to satisfy me. It’s funny; the food is a mix of southern and west coast and considering it’s location… that makes sense.

Being a rock addict, I had to get my hands on some outdoor rocks. It was too snowy to climb at Mt. Lemmon the day we went, so I had to settle for indoor climbing, which was still okay with me. I went to Rocks & Ropes right here in Tucson, which was incredibly convenient. I also had some time to kill before the gym opened, so I decided to try acupuncture for the first time… because why not? In the same day as the two above mentioned events, I also stumbled upon a random Jazz Festival and a Twilight Farmers Market. It was a really successful last full day in Tucson, I can say that much.  If you ever get the chance to visit Arizona, I can certainly claim that Tucson is not a disappointment!
