My friends and I are thinking of booking a special trip somewhere warm for an upcoming vacation. This article inspired me to look into different places that aren't your typical all-inclusive getaways. Although these are all luxurious villas and hotels that I would like to stay in when I have saved up and can afford it, they are still fun and different beach destinations that are worth taking a look at!

This new tool created by Google is an interesting and creative idea. I like how it helps travellers plan trips simply from their phone. It appears to be a very simple tool to use and I like how it helps create full itineraries to keep track of the amount of days gone, the places planned to visit, the number of people, possible costs etc. I will be sure to give this cool new tool a try next time I plan a trip somewhere!

Bora Bora is definitely a place that I plan on visiting at some point in my life. It has been a destination on my bucket list for years but I will make sure to plan and save up to visit this island eventually. I follow the blog "Barefoot Blonde" where the author Amber Fillerup Clark talks all things travel, fashion, beauty and fitness. Lurking her blog, I found a post she did on her first visit to Bora Bora that I decided to share. She talks about her experience, shows you a bunch of beautiful pictures as well as gives you a travel guide you can follow. Reading over her experience of her trip as well as seeing all the gorgeous pictures of the resort and beaches only motivates me to start saving for the trip of my dreams!

This is a travelling blog that I have recently found by fashion-forward co-founders Anna Peuckert and Søren Jepsen. They do a great job in creating travel guides that are made into 12-hour itineraries per trip. These itineraries include boutiques, restaurants, art galleries and the list continues of what is best to see, eat and do in these places at a short stay. The make sure to stay away from the typical tourist attractions that many others will recommend or one may stumble across and instead show you places "off the beaten path". They have great tips from locals and their own first-hand experience. Their trips allow for one to follow the full schedule or pick and chose what is of most interest in that location. I think this is a very unique and smart idea for a blog and it is very useful for any kind of traveler. I will make sure to browse this blog before my next trip as well as allow it to inspire me to add new places to the bucket list to visit!

I'm not sure about you, but I would love to travel the world when I am out of school and one of my top places in mind to visit is Thailand. Southeast Asia seems to be the newest traveling crave with a lot of people either making trips there or planning on visiting soon, and with this article I found on the best beaches to find there - I don't blame any of them! The water is clear and light blue, making you want to relax but at the same time inspiring you to explore. I am very adventurous and although I do like to sit back and relax on the beach, I am one who prefers the excursions. These beaches show that they have a lot to offer as they are all different in some way. Some are closer to cliffs and coves while others are surrounded by wild jungle. I have taken this article as inspiration to plan a future trip to such an amazing country and hopefully a couple of other countries close by as well!

Over the Christmas break I was lucky enough to take a family trip to California. This trip was action packed as we decided to venture around different parts of California and Nevada. This was my second time in California and I was able to experience and visit new places that I have been dying to see. We started off by San Francisco where my cousin lives in a smaller city close by called Red Wood City. We stayed there for a week and went around small towns like Stanford, Belvedere Tiburon, Sausalito, Presidio, Daly City, Fremont Santa Cruz and Cupertino. After a week of tourism and shopping we drove down to Las Vegas to spend new years as a family. This was special for me because my cousins who I don't see very often joined us in on the adventure and celebration.

After two days in Vegas, we drove up to Lake Tahoe, a city that I had been planning on visiting since my first time in California. The mountains were breathtaking and the views of the lake were even better. We stayed in a rental cabin for two nights and three days. We went skiing and tobogganing which was a lot of fun! After our time in Lake Tahoe, we drove back to San Francisco and did our final tour of Alcatraz, the famous island and prison that I have always been intrigued in visiting. That was a cool and fascinating experience, a tour I definitely recommend on taking if you are ever in San Francisco. Here are a couple of pictures that I would like to share from this trip which made me fall in love with California even more, I would love to live there someday...

Here is a short article I stumbled upon on Facebook today. I wanted to share because it talks about all the typical things people do, say and think when they are from small town Oakville, Ontario like myself! I connected with all 25 "signs" and it made me realize how much Oakville means homes to me. I love everything about this little town but most definitely agree with number 5 when it talks about Oakville being a "bubble". Although this is home for me, it does not stop me from wanting to experience new cultures and places. I want to travel and have the opportunity to live in different cities and towns, yet Oakville will forever be my home no matter where I may end up one day!

Over the reading week I went on a trip to NYC with my parents. It was my first time in the big apple and the experience was something I had to share. I stayed in a hotel close to Wall Street in the Financial District and because NY is so big, we decided to only venture around Manhattan. I was there for 5 days and made sure to try and hit the most touristic spots I could. Some of these included the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Centre, Empire State Building, Central Park and 5th Avenue.

The city is very large and it was very busy all the time, hence its nick name being "the city that never sleeps". Yet, I found that it wasn't as overwhelming as I thought it would be. The food was great, the weather was perfect and the shopping was even better. I would definitely recommend to anyone who hasn't been to New York to add it to their places to visit because for me it was a trip for the books!

Here are some pictures from my trip!
