I must I have said it a thousand times: being a travel journalist in SA is an immense privilege. There are countless hidden gems waiting to be discovered and experienced…
Last weekend I had the pleasure of my first visit to Lord’s Guest Lodge. Resting high up on one of the mountains of McGregor, you’d swear you were in the Scottish Highlands. Oh my, the views!
There’s a chapel, several stone houses, a pool area, a bar and a restaurant - which serves hearty doses of fine country cuisine. Swipe for some previews…
Never regret anything that made you smile!

Soil and Rock.
It’s the last day of the #letsgetearthychallenge !! I’ve been a little behind with my posts so I decided to combine the last two days together into one outfit. I’m wearing a simple black shirt dress from @target with a grey plaid blazer and some little booties from @anthropologie.
The black piece is my soil. It reminds me of the the black dirt I used to dig and sow when I had my big garden and grew my own fruits and veggies. We even had chickens then!
The grey is my rock. I think this color can vary in so many ways. Through our travels and adventures we have seen rocks of every shade and color. I decided to go with the traditional grey.
I’m going to share more soil and rock inspired outfits in my stories and please go check in with my co-hosts for their last outfits of the challenge.
It’s been such a pleasure and a joy to have a little passion project over the last week sharing these fashions and colors with you. Thank you for all your participation and support. So grateful for this community. ✌🏼🧡
Walking around in Seville is basically spoiling yourself to some treats for your eyes when it comes to the beautifully designed churches, parks and buildings - not to mention the delicious tapas and wine you must try to give yourself a break from all the walking 💁🏻♀️
El camino me puso en este lugar, y las preguntas llegaron rapidamente, todas se vinculan al pasado, a quien fuí hasta ese instante donde la división hizo que me detenga, que vea que por delante hay mucho más aún, que no siempre será color, pero que para predomine habrá que trabajar fuerte, que el corazón deberá sostener el ritmo de esa bateria que marque el sentir, el que no solo deseo para mí, sino para quien decida animarse a correrlo una vez más, habrá más revelaciones por delante, de eso estamos hecho. -Revelaciones al Norte-

Amsterdam’a her gidişimde evlerine,sokağına,kilisesine aklınıza gelebilecek her köşesine hayran oluyorum gerçekten.
Daha mükemmel nasıl yapılabilirdi bilemiyorum. •Dam meydanına Adeta aşık oldum,sanırım ikinci kez akşam saatinde görüyorum. •Dışarıdan bile muhteşem görünen iki kilise keşfettim centraal’e yakın, özellikle gidip onları göreceğim.
•Red light sokağı inanılmaz kalabalık herhalde en kalabalık sokaklar orasıydı. •Dün story’de paylaşmıştım kanalın yanında bir direğe kilit 🔐 asmışlar akıbeti nedir bilemiyorum ama bulursam muhakkak paylaşırım. Bilen varsa yoruma yazarsa aydınlanırız☺️
•Yine story’de paylaştığım bir antika dükkanı buldum her şey çok güzel ama çok pahalıydı.
•Ara sokaklarda dam meydanına yakın vintage güzel mağazalar var birkaç tanesine baktım,ürünler kaliteli aklınızda bulunsun. Benim gibi eşyalara anlam yüklüyor ve eski şeyler seviyorsanız bakmadan geçmeyin. @bijonsvintage hatta ismini de buraya yazayım 👌
After a brief stop in Sanremo, the quiet seaside town of Bonassola on the Northwest coast is our first Italian destination. The town is small, cradled between steep green cliffs filled with olive trees, grape vines and an old coral-colored church. On our first night, we’re drawn to the twinkle-lit patio of a hotel next door to our AirB&B. We walk through the gate and up the dirt pathway. There’s a large outdoor patio area and no one on it aside from two older Italian couples who play cards while they puff on their pipes and pour house white from their carafes. “Two for dinner?” we ask a woman in the tiny lobby, unsure if they’re serving food. “Yes!” she exclaims. Someone, who we think is her son, seats us under the terrace and the crawling lavender wisteria. We order seafood pasta and a pesto minestrone soup and watch as a woman, perhaps the grandmother, prepares the dishes in her open kitchen. The food is entirely homey and the loud sound of the train tracks above us — familiar and oddly soothing. Eventually, the card players meander to another destination and it’s just us among dozens of empty tables, the glow of the night stars and the twinkle lights. Dining here is arriving home to a secret garden, to a place where one should speak in whispers so as to not miss anything.
Growing up, all I watched were Disney princesses movies 👸🏼 No wonder all I want to do is find dreamy castles with the most epic views 🏰 aaaaand i get to do it with my prince charming 🤴🏼
But behind every stunning location there is a funny or tragic story of getting there....in our case a disgusting one 😅 Walking up hill for 20 min in a trail filled with horse 💩 is no joke in heat stroke august 🌞 but i must say it was well worth it ✨who would miss a chance to look at this view! Oh, did i mention we were wearing sandals?!
How far would you go to reach the end destination?

I wanted to end this round of posts on Bosnia with a light and lovely note of how art is such a strong part of the vibe of old town Sarajevo. I first found the shop, Gallery Nur with its funky piano while walking with a dear friend and we both fell in love with it. ⠀
The owner, Dzenana is a master of her craft who is known for drawing on all of her pieces, and one of her signature themes is Bosnian houses. On that first trip, I bought a dark blue linen skirt with Bosnian houses and the more I wear it, the more I fall in love with it.⠀
Then fast forward twelve months, I went back to Sarajevo and Dzenana made me this beautiful piece that you can see in the picture.⠀
Dzenana is also a musician and teaches music at the university. The sight of her, like other artists taking care of their shop and creating their art at the same time, is a heartwarming sight that my heart holds very dear and admires deeply. ⠀
I hope that you find it easily and my warmest salams to Dzenana, so the address is Veliki Čurčiluk 35 Sarajevo 🌹🎨⠀
حبيت أنهي حديثي معكم عن البوسنة بالحديث مرة تانية عن كيف الفن جزء جميل من روح منطقة سراييفو القديمة. أنا وصديقتي لقينا محل رائع اسمه جاليري نور وفيه بيانو وكتييير حبيناه.⠀
دجنانا ماشاء الله موهوبة، هي اللي بتصمم وبتخيط بعض القطع وبترسم عليهم. واحدة من المواضيع اللي بترسمها هي البيوت البوسنية. ⠀
اشتريت تنورة كتان كحلية عليها هاي البيوت وكل ما بلبسها بحبها أكتر! وبعد ١٢ شهر رحت للمحل مرة تانية وهالمرة دجنانا خيطت هاي القطعة الحلوة إلي. ⠀
دجنانا عندها موهبة الموسيقى وبتدرس بالجامعة. لما أشوفها زي فنانين تانيين في منطقة سراييفو القديمة، دايرين بالهم على محلاتهم وبيشتغلوا عم بيعملوا قطع فنية بنفس الوقت، قلبي بيصير يرفرف على هالمنظر المثير للإعجاب والتقدير. ⠀
إن شاء الله تلاقوا المحل بسهولة، ووصلوا سلامي لدجنانا. فهي العنوان ٣٥ شارع فيليكي تشورشيلوك سراييفو 🌹🎨
Kabak Koyu Muğla'nın Fethiye ilçesinde bulunmaktadır. Faralya' ya kadar gidip kabak koyunu görmeden dönmeyin. Hatta yürüyebilirseniz likya yolu rotasında bulunan şelaleye ve Cennet Koyu'na da yürüyün. Ya da Kabak Koyu'ndan tekne veya kano ile de gidebilirsiniz.
Follow me to Brazil 🇧🇷 One of the world’s most captivating places, Brazil is a country of beautiful beaches, verdant rainforests and wild, rhythm filled metropolises. It’s also home to a world wonder - The Christ the Redeemer statue.
I explored this country for shy of five days and I can’t wait to share my experiences with you! My experience was filled with loads of plot twists and completely laughable moments (you’ll find out soon!) Is Brazil on your list of countries to visit? Comment below what comes to mind when you think of Brazil!
