Bocas Del Toro famous with backpackers, surfers, and scuba divers looking for an off beaten path destination that feels like paradise. I never heard of Bocas Del Toro until I arrived in Panama City, Panama and immediately knew I had to go. While Panama City was awesome, I knew I had to get out of the city. I loved the thought of a place where I could get the beach, jungle, and island paradise all in one. While some maybe put off by the 10-hour overnight bus ride, or taking another flight I heard this place was worth every extra minute and cent it took to get there.
48 hours in Dallas convinced me that I loved this city. Dallas is the glitz and the glamour of Texas. The city is made up of neighborhoods, such as Bishop Arts and Deep Ellum that give Dallas a hipster edge. Personally, I had decided to stay longer in Austin, Texas because people in Austin tried to tell me there was not much to see in Dallas. However, I thought they were wrong. I found there was plenty of things to do for any foodie, art lover, or culture seeking traveler in Dallas.
Tulum is the destination that everyone is talking about on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico. My mom was shocked to learn how popular it was now, she told me of the unspoiled beaches and town of Tulum she had visited 30 years ago. While tourists have discovered this gem, thanks to Instagram, influencers, and word of mouth, it is still 100 percent worth coming here for a great vacation! The pearly white sand beaches are what initially draws tourists, but there is a boat load of things to do beyond the shores.
If you want uncommercial, chill, and relaxed vibes as compared to nearby tourist destinations Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Tulum is for you! If your still not convinced here are 10 reasons that will have you booking your ticket ASAP!
New Orleans a city of jazz, mouthwatering food, and the nicest people that make you do a double take. The beauty of New Orleans is it is a city where almost anything goes. I have been three times throughout my life and every time the Big Easy surprises me with different experiences that blow my mind.
I have gone as a teen, a booze crazed 21-year-old, and a more mature sober Sarah. This time around there was no booze as I traversed the city, by day and night. In fact, the past 6 months I have cut out alcohol out of my diet entirely, but that is an entirely different story. Seeing New Orleans through a fresh mindset and an open mind allowed me have a hell of a great time!
When I arrived to Mexico City other travelers and people back home in the states were interested into why I chose to go there. The city’s reputation as a dangerous, dirty, and overcrowded metropolis hardly may sound appealing to American, Canadian, and European tourists that prefer the turquoise waters of the Mexican Riviera. Many travelers may write it off altogether, but I believe they are missing out on one of the most culturally rich and historically significant cities in the world.
