In 2011 (has it been 5 years already?) I went to India on a volunteer program. I stayed in Hyderabad for six weeks, volunteering as an English teacher at KARE School – a school for underprivileged children in the slums of Hyderabad.
My time in India was intense. Among other things, I suffered from a massive initial culture shock, fell in love with Indian food, met amazing people, learned to cope with the immense poverty, visited incredible places, and somehow ended it all in the hospital the night before my return flight home.
I’ve traveled to Mozambique a few times over the past three years. It’s been a unique experience for me in that I don’t usually return to the same place every year. But, alas, with the boyfriend working there I really had no choice. (He’s back to Portugal now, thankfully.)
Two years ago, I went on 10-day road trip through Morocco and it was an incredible journey to get to know this unique country. From snowy mountaintops to the depths of the Sahara Desert, in a little over one week I got a glimpse of how diverse Morocco can be.
If you’re thinking of traveling to Morocco but you’re not sure where to start, here’s a quick guide to the country. From visa requirements to the cities you can’t miss: here is everything you need to know about traveling to Morocco.
Pinterest is one of my favorite apps. I feel like it has a bit of a reputation for being mostly used by stay-at-home-moms looking for a new recipe or DIY project. But there’s so much more you can do on it!
I love using it to get inspiration and tips for my travels. I have a Board for just about every destination and I use them to pin all kinds of useful articles from other travel bloggers and magazines. That way, when I’m off on a new adventure I have all the advice I’ll need in one (perfect-looking) place!
I’m in love with Lisbon. But even with our amazing relationship, sometimes we need to take a break from each other. When the city life gets too hectic or when I simply want to refresh my eyes with a different view, I head out of town for a day and explore a new city, town or park.
Over the years, I’ve collected a few favorite day trips to take from Lisbon. Because that’s another great thing about the city – not only is it a beautiful European capital with tons to explore, Lisbon is also surrounded by countless interesting cities and towns waiting for you to discover them.
Ask anyone what their New Year’s resolutions were for 2016 and I’ll bet you a gazillion dollars that one of them was to travel more. But I’ll bet you another gazillion dollars that if you check back with that same person in December of this year you’ll discover they might not have even traveled at all.
Portugal has become an increasingly popular tourist destination in the past years. Porto was named Europe’s Best Destination in 2014, Lisbon was featured as Europe’s coolest city on CNN and World of Wanderlust named that same city as the best budget destination in 2016.
Less than an hour away from Lisbon lies the coastal town of Ericeira. Once a quiet fishermen’s town, Ericeira has become a popular surf destination in recent years and one of the main stages for Portugal’s summer music festivals.
Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves, covering an area of almost 20,000 square kilometers. Besides its incredible size though, the park is very well known around the world for being a “Big Five territory”.
I’m so happy you’re here!
Allow me to introduce myself: I’m Inês (it’s pronounced kind of like eee-neige). Barely 5ft tall, and shameless picky eater (sorry Mom and Dad!). Oh, I’m also a travel blogger.
Right now, I’m working really hard on putting together the most inspiring, funny, awesome, happy, beautiful and real travel and lifestyle blog just for you.
