I was told that I only needed to spend one night in the city, but I’m so glad I decided to spend three nights instead of listening to everyone else. Because Ljubljana is a…

I learned all about the region, agrotourism, and met some really wonderful local people who elevated my experience in the area. Exploring Bela…

I rang in country number 40 in Belgium and it was so much fun! And I was lucky to lay my head down at Jam Hotel for my two nights in Brussels.

This was my third visit to Amsterdam. I’ll be completely honest with you, I really wasn’t excited to head back to a city for a third time.

I can now say without any doubt in my mind that I would not only return to Amsterdam over and over again, but I would absolutely move there. Amsterdam is filled with charm, character, culture, and not…

I’m all about packing as light as possible. And usually I’m a backpack kind of girl, but my backpack really only works for warm weather destinations since I’m only traveling with bathing suits and cover ups for the most part.

I have two suitcases from them and I’ve…
