When I booked my flight ticket to Utah in March, one of the top places I wanted to see was the Salt Flats at Bonneville. Thousands of years ago, this location used to be a huge lake that has dried up since then. Nowadays, it’s home to virtually nothing but salt pans. However, there’s definitely something worth capturing even in the middle of nowhere. It’s a beautiful natural phenomenon that becomes even more stunning after it rains. When wet, the salt flats cast a mesmerizing reflection of the serene mountain and blue skies. It’s one of the most surreal experiences to witness in person, while also creating one the best mirror effect photography. Captivated by it all, I felt like a miniature figurine inside a snow globe. The landscape stretches on for miles and you can’t help but feel so small in such a vast endless space! ~b
Bonjour!!!Sharing my final pics from my mini France travel series with one of my absolute favorite cities – Paris! It’s one of those places that I love to visit over and over again. There are so many things that come to mind when I think of Paris…. picnics by the Effiel Tower, casual strolls through the immaculate gardens, sightseeing at all the top attractions…The list can go on and on but I’ll truly never forget my first time seeing the iconic Effiel Tower. I remembered turning a corner and suddenly having a “pinch me” kind of moment when I first laid eyes on the majestic structure. It’s grandiose and timeless, I couldn’t stop marveling at it! The historical monument is one of the most famous landmarks in the world and a symbol of Paris. If you have the time, you can also climb the tower to get a beautiful view of the city… I posted a pic down below. It’s an amazing experience that you have to do at least once in your life! The City of Lights is awe-inspiring, romantic, and simply magical. I am honestly sooo entranced by the lovely atmosphere of Paris so I can’t wait to come back soon! ~b 🙂
A couple summers ago, I had the adventure of a lifetime while backpacking Europe. I traveled throughout the beautiful country of France and was enamored by it all! Nestled in between the mountains and the Mediterranean is a sleepy seaside town called Menton. It’s one of my absolute favorite spots on the French Riviera and has even been nicknamed, “The Pearl of France.” It’s a beloved hidden gem that tourists often miss out on. A cluster of pastel homes cascade the hillside overlooking the quaint beaches. A little library is even situated on the beach which I thought was a super clever idea. I know if I was local there I would totally love sunbathing with a good book in hand! Menton also has sunny weather year-round so it’s an ideal gateway for any season. The relaxed atmosphere also makes time stand still and you feel like you are in a daydream of some sort. I loved my quick mini trip to Menton and can’t wait to come back here one day to explore more of this charming village! 🙂 ~b
Happy Tuesday, guys! Yesterday I drove down to Charleston with some family and friends for a mini day trip. So I thought what better idea then to share some photos from my last visit in the summertime!
Charleston, South Carolina is a super popular destination. Beloved by both tourists and locals, it’s well-known for its rich culture and historic charm. Exploring the historic district is a must-have and the best way to fully experience the city. Located in downtown, the South of Broad neighborhood is home to some of the most beautiful residential architecture. My absolute favorite is this posh mansion overlooking White Point Garden! It’s the perfect balance of classic and contemporary. Nearby these fabulous estates is the famous battery. It’s a nice place to take a stroll and catch a light breeze in the hot humidity. Below are some of my top pics from my summer trip, I’ll also be posting my pictures from my winter trip in a later blog post. As always, thanks for stopping by – until next time! 🙂 ~b
Happy Wednesday, everyone! One of the main reasons I started blogging was because I wanted to document parts of my life. Like a diary of sorts, I love the ability to reflect back with words and beautiful photography. Below are photos taken in West Palm Beach, Florida this past summer.
Naturally anywhere with tropical palm trees is my type of vacation and West Palm Beach was no exception. It’s absolutely gorgeous! My family and I were only there briefly after our cruise to the Bahamas. Regardless of the short stay, I still loved strolling around the sophisticated streets and gazing at the colorful pastel architecture. We also had time to venture to the beach and enjoy the calming seaside bliss. Hearing the waves rolled in, eased and rejuvenated my soul with a sense of carefreeness. I love peaceful and relaxing destination, so I hope to travel back one day to fully experience all that West Palm Beach has to offer! ~b
As the weather continues to plummet into the low 30’s on the East Coast, my mind can’t help but yearn for the warm, inviting, West Coast sun rays. Last year in early October, I took a mini getaway to one of Oregon’s classic seaside town, Cannon Beach. I have always loved the beach, there’s just something about the sea air that invigorates my soul with tranquility. Cannon Beach was a wide sun-kissed stretch of sand with rocky shores. Charming, quaint, and picturesque – it easily became one favorite destination of 2017! While I wish I could be whisked away and hop on the next flight there – that’s just not realistic or feasible. But, I can rejoice in the memories by posting a few of my favorite pics from my trip. 🙂 Hope you enjoy them! Where are you hoping to jet set to next? ~b
