TULUM TRAVEL GUIDE

tulum01

tulum? WOW. seriously, wow. i have been to mexico quite a few times but this time was really special. a few months ago, 3 friends and I decided to take a girls only trip. we all find so much inspiration from travel, and wanted to just take a few days to recharge and feed off of each other’s creative energy. it was one of those hilarious & memorable short trips that i probably will never forget. here’s what we were able to do in the three days we were there, in case you are planning a trip… (ps, the ruins are supposed to be amazing, we just didn’t make it due to time)

LOVE YOU JEN, JESSE & PAIGE!

9 PLACES I’D LIKE TO TRAVEL TO

i swear, once you start traveling more often you can seriously get addicted! it’s a vicious cycle of going somewhere, longing for the comfort of home, and then itching to go somewhere else. (ahem, i JUST got back from thailand!) i haven’t had the strong desire to go back anywhere i’ve gone, besides paris, which never gets old. there’s just SO much to see. so much culture and interesting ways of living. so many colors and foods and hidden gems to find. so much planning to be done (which i love!) it’s friday, i can’t help but dream a little of where i’d like to go next…

i’d like to take a dip in the blue lagoon in iceland…

have a candlelit dinner with this view in greece…

take a long bicycle ride with flowers in my basket around amsterdam…

lounge by the pool, sipping cocktails in morocco

check in to a bungalow over this magical water in bora bora…

paris never gets old. i’d like to sit here, eat chocolate croissants and chat with a friend…

wave hello to someone from my magic mountain window in chile…

take a colorful ice cream break in tokyo…

sip baileys & get cozy in the middle of nowhere with my guy…

SO! which one pulled on you? where are you dreaming of going?

ps. i searched high and low for the photo credits. i found most of them, but unfortunately i’m missing a few thanks to the black hole of pinterest/tumblr. let me know if you have the original sources to the two i couldn’t locate. thanks!

ROME TRAVEL GUIDE

we arrived in rome and dragged our bags through the cobblestone alleys to meet our host at the airbnb apartment we rented in via dei banchi nuovi (you can rent it here). it was quite the change of scenery from stockholm, where i had just been! i love how cheap the flights are through europe. just $80 and we were somewhere completely different.

follow the map that asia and i made for some of our favorite rome activities…

there was a bottle of wine waiting for us there and we just took in the crazy views from our terrace. our host was so nice and wrote out a big list of places to eat and drink and pointed out some of his favorite places to go in the area. victoria and i arrived first and waited for jen before we hit the town. the place was just a short walk away from piazza navona, which was full of great bars, gelato, restaurants and people watching. such a charming little spot.

rome-designlovefest04

a really good meal by our place was cul de sac. meatballs on mashed potatoes, cheese ravioli, tiramisu. a cozy little spot with friendly waiters, a bunch of locals, and a ridiculous wine selection.

we made a few meals in our apartment. mostly just meals in between larger meals (we ate far too much on this trip!) one of my favorite parts about renting an apartment is going to the grocery store and filling the fridge with snacks and drinks and having the option to cook. after traveling more than a week, sometimes it’s nice to not have to think about what restaurant is next and just stay home.
