Never one to turn down a good street art walk, I spent the afternoon yesterday exploring the RiNo arts district of Denver discovering some new and some familiar street artists!

Around just about every corner on the islands of Croatia was an adorable alley like this one. Such a picturesque area of the world! Traveling in Croatia with @intrepidtravel was one of the highlights of 2018 for me and if you're looking for an excuse to try out group travel, now is the time to do it! I've had nothing but awesome experiences with Intrepid Travel and all their trips are 20% off for north Americans today! #BeIntrepid

Are you starting to think about your winter travel plans? Last year, I went to @onlyinlapland for a winter vacation. It was my first time traveling internationally to a winter destination. I loved all the snowy scenery and meeting these adorable huskies was definitely a highlight! There are so many good things to do in Lapland during the winter season and I write about 6 of them in my recent blog post. Check it out, link in the bio!

One of my favorite ways to explore my neighborhood is by bicycle, especially if I am hunting for street art! I can easily hop on and off when I spot a new mural I want to photograph. I always pin them to a custom @googlemaps in case I want to come back or need to tell someone about the street art. I recently started partnering with @schwinnbikes to write about safe biking in Chicago and my first post is all about discovering street art in some of the city's most bike friendly neighborhoods, along with a custom Google map so you can discover the murals for yourself! #Schwinn #schwinnbikes

How do you get in the mood for fall? For me, its visiting a pumpkin patch! We always went and picked out pumpkins as a kid so it is a nostalgic memory for me. But when you live in a big city, it can be hard to access a pumpkin patch. I was excited to find @jackspumpkinpopup which is part pumpkin extravaganza, part night time party venue. I had a silly night with @ladykwolfe wandering around the corn maze, sipping spiked apple cider and ooogling at all the pumpkins! Check out my story for more pumpkin vibes ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ

How exactly is it October 23rd? It feels like just yesterday that I was exploring Zagreb, enjoying my Croatian vacation with @intrepidtravel. That was over 2 months ago... these last few weeks have absolutely flown by. I am longing for the hours of sunlight and carefree vibes.

When your day starts with this view, you know it's going to be a good day. Mexico City is a loud and bustling city full of character but our @airbnb in the sky is a little urban oasis. We are spending the day wandering around our neighborhood, Condesa, drinking as many caffeinated beverages as possible and eating lots and lots of Mexican food. Needless to say, @cdmx_oficial was a good choice for Sam's birthday trip!

Today, I said goodbye to my work family at @greenheart_travel. Over the last 4 years, I have been lucky enough to come to work with this amazing group of dedicated folks who have taught me so much about how to be a better colleague, a better traveler and a better person. While I'm excited about the next step, it is sad to leave what has been the most rewarding workplace I've ever been a part of. Greenheart Travel is the place where I learned I was meant to work in the travel space and it has forever shaped my career moving forward. I'm feeling thankful for the opportunities this organization has given me, and even more grateful that I was able to bring travel into the lives of young people everywhere ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š Curious about what's ahead for me? Stay tuned next week for a big announcement! #greenhearttravel

I ride the @chicagocta to work every day and totally take it for granted. I get annoyed with delays or frustrated by the crowded trains. But with a simple shift in perspective like stepping underneath the tracks, I am reminded of its beauty, of its resilience, of its usefulness. I write this caption while riding the L and I'm feeling thankful that I have access to public transportation and grateful that the train is part of the identity of this city ๐Ÿ“ธ by @coffeyjen

if you're not living on the edge then you are taking up a little too much space. โ—ˆย  Make your story rich and colorful. Tell the world how you laugh and cry, how you love and are loved, how you give of yourself and how you receive. โ—ˆย  And yes, it sounds scary, but great things never came from comfort zones. โœจ

After three days of networking, learning and being extroverted at @travel_con, the reward of eating the most beautiful (and delicious!) cookie was well deserved. The adorable @thehayleycakes bakery is truly a treat seeing all her creative designs. This party llama was just one of my favorites! Thanks for recommending this spot @travelbranyik. #travelcon18 #travelcon2018

The amount of street art in Austin is astounding and there is a beautiful piece to find around seemingly every corner. So many of the murals depict city pride too, which I love! You're weird and beautiful and awesome Austin โค #travelcon18 #travelcon2018

people think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. โœจ . . . . . . . . . . . #prettylittleiiinspo #femmetravel #girlsthatwander #girlswhotravel #letsgetlost #letsgoeverywhere #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #travelgirlago #abmtravelbug #globelletravels #prettylittletrips #theglobewanderer #girlgetters #wonderfulplaces #passionpassport #beautifulmatters #letsflyawayto #beautifuldestinations #igersamalficoast #italy๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น #ravello #villarufolo #ig_villarufolo

It's been a week since we got back from Croatia and even though my tan is fading, my awesome travel memories with this guy aren't fading any time soon. I am beyond grateful to have Sam as my lifelong travel partner and celebrating our anniversary yesterday just reminded me how happy and lucky I am โค

Despite the blazing 95 degree heat, we tackled all the bucket list items in Dubrovnik! We walked the 1100 year old walls of the city and rode the cable car up to get a view of Dubrovnik from above. You might not be able to tell in this photo, but I was sweating my butt off by the end of today. Still, these views made it worth it!! #BeIntrepid

In addition to some pretty amazing sightseeing during our @intrepidtravel sailing adventure, we have been eating like royalty on this trip! Prior to coming to Croatia, I didn't have much exposure to Croatian cuisine. I assumed it would be similar to Greek or Italian food, given it's close proximity, but once we started eating here, I learned that it is a creative combination of lots of different flavors. We've seen plenty of Italian influence mixed with Balkan cooking traditions and an emphasis on local ingredients. Truffles, seafood and lamb have been staples of our diet here, including lots of tartare and oysters like you see in this photo. I am so surprised by how much delicious food we've eaten and the local cuisine has really impressed me! The food in Croatia has truly exceeded my expectations! #BeIntrepid

It was day one in Manali, and the hillstation had its last snowfall a week back, and my heart was longing to see the white flakes falling from the sky.

With day one of traveling through Croatia in the books, I can easily say that the next 12 days are going to be a lovely vacation. Zagreb was such a nice start to our trip!! It has been one of the most welcoming, clean, and beautiful capital cities I've ever visited and definitely a place I would return to with more time to explore. The stunning architecture and scenic overlooks made wandering around (on only a few hours of sleep mind you!) easy, fun, and incredibly picturesque. If this is only the beginning of Croatia, I can hardly wait for what lies ahead!

and just like that, i was blown away. ๐ŸŒฌ . . ~~~ FUN FACT: the Carmo Church was built right next to the Carmelite Church but since it was not allowed for 2 churches to share a wall in common, between them the narrowest house in the world was constructed, 1m in width, and was inhabited until 1980s. Say whaaat !? ๐Ÿ™ˆ ~~~ . . . . . . . . . . . #prettylittleiiinspo #femmetravel #girlsthatwander #girlswhotravel #letsgetlost #letsgoeverywhere #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #travelgirlago #abmtravelbug #globelletravels #prettylittletrips #theprettycities #theglobewanderer #girlgetters #wonderfulplaces #passionpassport #beautifulmatters #letsflyawayto #hello_worldpics #natgeotravel #beautifuldestinations #visitportugal #portugal_vacations #portugalonthetop #portugal #ig_portugal

On the eve of starting our trip to Croatia with @intrepidtravel, I cant help but reflect on my last trip with Intepid Travel when I went to Cuba for 9 days. That tour was eye-opening for me and I absolutely fell in love with traveling in Cuba. My group was amazing, my experience was everything I hoped for and it was the trip that started my now 18 month relationship with Intrepid Travel. I am beyond excited to be traveling with them again to Croatia and I am so sincerely grateful to @bexshapiro for giving this 'lil blogger the opportunity to write for such a great company. Cheers to the journey ahead! Stay tuned over the next 13 days to see my adventures in Croatia because I can guarantee it will be a fun experience to follow! #BeIntrepid

I spent the whole afternoon scooting around Chicago with @amyarz and @kristinarz923 on a Segway!! Check that off the list of things I've never done before. @absolutelytours taught us how to ride and then took us out for a 3 hour ride along the lake front on what turned out to be an absolutely perfect day. We had such a blast and I even learned some new fun facts about Chicago. See all the highlights from my tour in my story today!
