Surrounded by endless mountains and featuring more than 300 Buddhist temples, Chiang Mai’s laid-back atmosphere invites visitors to explore the Thai culture and the ancient history of the Lanna Kingdom while savoring delicious dishes and enjoying the night markets that line the Pin River. Exploring the city’s lush mountainous outskirts is another perk for adventurous hearts.

Tulum, Mexico

Tulum is a haven where the picture-perfect beaches of the Mexican Caribbean blend splendidly with boho-chic vibes.

If sunbathing in white sand-perfect beaches, sipping cocktails at hip bars, snorkeling in turquoise shaded waters, biking through a seaside town, and exploring ancient Mayan ruins seem attractive to you, then Tulum’s just right for you.

Essaouira, Morocco


Seaside bliss, Moroccan culture, and stunning walled forts make Essaouira another sought-after destination. Moroccan cultural sites, stunning walled forts, and a dreamy beachside scene make this a great spot to visit. Less hectic than Marrakesh, Essaouira is literally a walled city that is a maze in itself which visitors love to get lost in while shopping and taking in the various hand-made Moroccan goodies that are for sale.

Lagos, Portugal

The town of Lagos is the perfect destination to hit in Europe. As shoulder season arrives and the summer crowds return home, the weather in glimmering Lagos remains warm.

The stunning turquoise beaches of Lagos blending perfectly with the town’s treasures make this destiny in Portugal a very worthy one. Its quaint cobblestone streets are lined by amazing historical buildings and forts, all of them surrounded by majestic cliffs.

Diani Beach, Kenya

If you’re yearning for a relaxing getaway mixed with a bit of adventure, Diani Beach in Kenya will do the trick.

Located only a few kilometers from Mombasa, Diani Beach is a small beach town that boasts some of the world’s most splendid beaches while being close to Tsavo National Park, Shimba Hills Reserve and Kisite Marine Park. So, beach vibes can mix with quick safari escapes and some snorkeling, making it an idyllic and adventure-filled African dream come true.

The journey has been full of highs and lows of all sorts – of grand adventures, heartbreak, self-discovery, screw ups, and lonely roads. I wouldn’t change any of it. While I’m no longer traveling full-time anymore and I am now based in the wonderland that is Mexico City, you’re more likely to find me in some far-off place than at home. I’m a firm believer in the law of attraction, and I hope my stories inspire you to take the leap and follow your dreams!
