Less than two hours from Atlanta and right up across that state line of Georgia is the beautiful little city of Chattanooga. It’s surrounded by water and mountains and has some of the most scenic views in the south. After spending a weekend in Tennessee, I was infatuated by the small town charm. While Atlanta may be bustling, it’s also busy with traffic. Everything in Chattanooga was a walkable distance and it’s an easy walk too! The city is accommodating to pedestrians, streets are lined with talented street performers, and who can get enough of those southern manners. While you roam the city on your next trip to Chattanooga, make sure you stop by these famous Instagram spots…View Post
I remember when I was younger and I watched this couple sitting near the window seats on a flight to Europe. I I was only 8 and my mom and I had a stopover on our way to Pakistan. The couple was mesmerizing. They laughed and giggled, slept on each other’s shoulder’s and even watched a movie together. I remember thinking that one day I was going to be able to travel with my soulmate and we would be borderline sappy. Fast forward more than 20 years and I feel so blessed to be able to travel with my husband often. I’d be lying if I said it was only fun & games. Traveling can cause stress and tension in relationships if you aren’t mindful of certain things. Here are the things you should focus on before you plan your next trip with your beau…View Post
The Atlanta food scene is one of South’s most well-hidden gems. From Buford Highway to Grant Park culture runs deep and is engrained in the fiber of the city. Yes, Atlanta traffic is notoriously awful, but it’s because the city is sprawling with hustlers & go-getters from each corner ITP.
We Atlantans love our restaurants and there’s no better way to eat your way through the city than to mix it up with a few hole-in-the-wall spots and some celebrated Atlanta landmarks. Here is your go-to guide for 72 hours in the city…View Post
When you’ve been with someone for over a decade you have to be super cautious of falling victim to the “R” word. Nope, not what you thought – it’s routine. Routines enable repetition and that drives monotony. That’s why Sahir and I try to get away, even just a little, every month in the year.
I know what you are thinking. Every month? You’re crazy. I’ve got bills, school, kids and responsibilities! But before you come for my head with pitchforks, hear me out. Getaways don’t have to 5 day trips to Indonesian islands (although wouldn’t it be great if they all were?) but instead just a…View Post
We’ve been planning this trip to Thailand for nearly two years and even though we booked nearly 11 months ago, the trip still kinda snuck up on us. We sourced hundreds of recommendations and itineraries to find the best travel plan for us and I’m happy to share the details of my trip in hopes that it helps you prepare for one of your own…View Post
My sister and brother in law were actually the masterminds behind this impromptu trip to Mexico City. They planned a much-needed family vacation for our side of the family. Both my sister and I travel more often with our in-laws so it was nice to do this one trip with our mom! They are both travel gurus and go to the most incredible places and always find the best insider tips. Sahir and I knew that this trip would be one that we would have to do little to no planning and everything would be perfect because those two are amazing when it comes to this kinda thing…View Post
It’s safe to say that I’m well versed in SF tourism. After visiting nearly annually for the better part of a decade, I have seen most of the sights and know the places that I’ve…View Post
Zurich was a complete fluke. When we took an impromptu trip to Europe early this summer, we knew that we needed to make it to Portugal, preferably for at least 4 days. Since that was…View Post
Visiting Paris is a must-do for everyone, no literally – everyone. I’m lucky enough to have been three times and every experience was a little different then the last. My first time was as a student studying abroad in college and I was literally in Paris for 48 hours. I vowed to come back with my husband since Paris is, of course, the city of love. Sahir and I made that happen when we spent Christmas in Paris in December of 2016 which is so romantic – right? I thought so too, except between 2 days of flight delays and 7 days of lost luggage in freezing cold weather – it was a little less glamourous. We still had a great time but promised ourselves that we would never travel during the holidays again with a) connecting flights and b) checked luggage. Our most recent trip was a do-over and Sahir made me promise to travel carry-on only. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. It was however, super refreshing to just hop off the plane and head straight into the city. Now that I’m a seasoned Parisian traveler, I have made a list of the top things you have to do when you visit Paris…View Post
I am a serial procrastinator when it comes to packing. I mean, hours before my flight I’ll be putting rolling shirts and ordering chargers on Amazon Now. It’s not my proudest moments. BUT I’m committed to breaking the cycle and this year has been amazing practice. (Remember when Sahir made me go to Paris for a week in just a carry-on?)…View Post
