Flying used to scare me so much, especially on long haul flights. While I love flying (as it is MUCH better than traveling in a car for long distance), I always get those late-night jitters about how I will be able to handle the long plane ride. There was even a time when I thought of pulling out Travel can be stressful, which is why I have mastered the art of staying sane while still heading to far away destinations. Believe me, you will feel so much better just trying to incorporate one or two of these techniques into your travel routine! It is almost like I did not spend six hours on a plane (almost!)
Oh hey! Fasten your seat belts.
I had so much fun in Paris when I was there. Before I went, people told me that the feeling of the city really overtakes you. I kind of rolled my eyes at this notion… until I realized how correct they were. Paris is a city steeped in history, tradition, and culture of hundreds of years. After the first day, I was completely head over heels for the city. It blends old and new so effortlessly.
It is also no secret that the FOOD in Paris is amazing. I do not think I have eaten so much in my entire life.
After traveling to Austin, I have to say that it is definitely one of my favorite cities. I do not know how they infuse Mexican food, BBQ, and “healthy” restaurants into one, seamless travel experience, but they DO! I was honestly overwhelmed with my options and, even with the not so great weather, I found plenty to see AND eat during my travels here.
Before I start this post, let me preface this by saying this is in NO WAY a comprehensive review of places in Austin. There are just too many to count. The place also are in no way in order of how much I loved them. However, in the three days I was here and, after hearing from a TON of you about what I should do and where I should go, these were the place that stood out during my travels. I ate SO MUCH FOOD when I was there and I’m glad I did! I will say that you shjould not be afraid here to head off of the beaten path. Regardless of where I went, everything here was so delicious. They definitely have quality on their side!
Summer is coming.
And hopefully, it will not be as morbid or bloody as a Game of Thrones winter! Fall is actually my favorite season, but there is something about summertime that is always so magical. It is PRIME beach season. It becomes socially acceptable to eat ice cream all the time. The fact that I can wear shorts outside and not be judged that it is not “shorts weather”.
Personal choice that shorts weather is all the time weather.
