Visiting Norway in the winter was one of the most incredible trips of my life. From seeing the Northern Lights to jumping in an icy cold fjord to dog sledding in the mountains to herding reindeer with the indigenous Sami people to crashing a snowmobile in the Arctic Tundra (because it wouldn’t be me if there’s not at least ONE disaster, right?), here are 35 jaw-dropping photos of Norway in the winter!
Before our trip to Bali this past July, we wondered: Is it actually possible to visit Bali on a budget? I mean, 99% of the Bali photos you see on Instagram involve fabulously beautiful people rolling around in luxury villas, swimming with all 18 of their abs in infinity pools, and eating way-too-fancy breakfasts while wearing high-end watches. So, we weren’t sure: is Bali a luxury playground, or are there budget-friendly deals to be found? Well, good news: you can absolutely visit Bali on a budget! You’ll just be experiencing a different side of Bali from the resort-goers and luxury lovers. Leave your high-end watch at home – you won’t be needing it where you’re going. We’ve partnered with Expedia to create this guide to saving money on a trip to Bali. Here are our favorite money saving tips for visiting Bali on a budget!
Indianapolis, Indiana is the biggest city in the Crossroads of America, but it’s also the most surprising. Canals, an incredible art museum, an award winning foodie scene, historic monuments, and plenty of adorable neighborhoods to explore; describe Indianapolis to someone who’s never been, and they might think you were describing somewhere in Europe. (It’s the canals, isn’t it?) But don’t underestimate Indianapolis! Centrally located to most major Midwestern cities and a quick flight from either coast, Indianapolis is a fantastic destination for a weekend getaway!
Although Oakland and San Francisco are neighbors, located just minutes apart across the Bay, the two cities could not be more different. Oakland has its own distinct history, sounds, tastes, its own social movements. And so while visiting San Francisco is its own kind of rad, visiting Oakland is completely, totally different – and just as awe-inspiring. I’ve lived in Oakland for almost 7 years, and I’m still discovering new things to fall in love with daily. In this post you’ll learn about what makes Oakland tick, and discover all of my favorite things to do in Oakland!
As a general rule, Jeremy and I are crochety old people at heart, but Nashville brought out our inner 22 year olds again. We couldn’t help it: Nashville is the kind of city that makes you want to dance even if you don’t know the steps, sing even if you don’t know the words, and drink even though it’s 2pm and you’re still riding a hot chicken high. Nashville is a city brimming with energy: from music spilling out of every doorway on Broadway, to down-home Southern food and mind-blowing drinks, to the history and art on display all over town, Music City lives up to its name and so much more. We’ve created a GIANT Nashville weekend itinerary full of foodie finds, culture, art, and (duh) music!
I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, a city famous for two things: bourbon and horses. True to form, my childhood in Louisville involved plenty of of horseback riding, and I developed a taste for bourbon at a young age (nooo, that sounded bad. I mean like… bourbon in chocolate form, not actual bourbon. Look, I turned out just fine, OK?). I may have moved away years ago, but I will always think of Louisville as home! Visiting Louisville as an adult, I’ve realized that there is SO much to do in this amazing city, and so much to share with Jeremy. We’ve realized that Louisville makes the PERFECT romantic getaway! Whether you’re looking for a weekend escape or you live close enough to Louisville to visit frequently (so jealous), there are tons of romantic things to do in Louisville. Below, we’ve got a selection of our top date ideas, organized by category (so that you can tailor your date to your Tinder selection for that day. Kidding, ish).
