Feliz Ano 2020 (Happy New Year) from San Miguel de Allende, a tiny UNESCO town in the middle of nowhere. SWIPE right to see this wonderful Mexican tradition of paper dolls in a wedding procession! . โค๏ธ For those of you whoโ€™ve been following along my journey this year Iโ€™ve talked about my mental anxiety, fears, my obsession with growth, and my consistent desire for strong connections (new and old).

A 4 Day Visit to San Miguel De Allende

Iโ€™ve been dying to visit San Miguel de Allende and when I recently had the wonderful opportunity to attend a destination wedding on New Yearโ€™s Eve in this city, I couldnโ€™t refuse! This is a great place to buy local, high-quality things like home goods, jewelry, furniture, clothes and paintings on your visit to San Miguel de Allende. Pro Tip: If you do visit San Miguel de Allende and decide to go to the hot springs, take your own towel, buy a lock, prepare to be surrounded by plenty of kids and adults in the hot springs and the pool, and make reservations at the front desk if you want a massage treatment. San Miguel de Allende is a city of many traditions, whether youโ€™re there for a wedding, New Yearโ€™s Eve, Christmas or Dia de los Muertos, so make sure you have your camera to capture these special and unique moments.

For the first time in all my travels in 20+ years I woke up in Tangier without my credit cards including my global entry card! I somehow STILL had my passports however and was able to fly out of Morocco to Europe and onward to India. Having no cash and still in the middle of my 2.5 month trip, I still didnโ€™t panic. I felt annoyed sure since I would need to cancel all my cards and reapply. I felt annoyed I would have to borrow money from friends and family but they were all SO accommodating! I canโ€™t thank them enough for being so generous - lending me cash, letting me use their cards etc! I I decided to look at this experience as a gift, as an opportunity to realize how blessed I am that Iโ€™m surrounded by people who are willing to help me! There always seems to be a way out no matter what...and with the help of one another, we got this humans! Imagine if you looked at every problem as a gift. As an opportunity to learn and grow. Without growth there is no progress. Without progress whatโ€™s life!?

Destination Guide to Uzbekistan

Iโ€™ve always wanted to travel along some part of the route today and I discovered that three of the Silk Roadโ€™s most important cities lie in Uzbekistan: Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand. The spiritual heart of Tashkent for many centuries, today the square is a vast complex of religious sites such as the Barak Khan Medressa, the Hazrat Imam Mosque and the small Muyi Mubarak Library which holds the oldest Quran in the world. At sunrise I caught some incredible sunburst shots inside the courtyard and had the chance to interact with local women who were coming to the mosque courtyard to meet with their friends. Stepping into the inner courtyard you will find the mosque to the left and after youโ€™re done admiring the incredibly stunning ceilings and interior, walk around through the souvenir stalls inside.

Have you ever wanted to meet a local family when traveling to another country? Are you intimidated by language barriers perhaps? Wondering how to choose the right local experience for you? If you are, Iโ€™m here to tell you itโ€™s really not as daunting as it may seem! For example, in this video, Iโ€™m in Uzbekistan with @acanelaexpeditions and its founder @kytrisha participating in a cooking workshop in a home in Bukhara. Mukaram and her family are graciously hosting us, teaching us how to make local Uzbek delicacies and have invited us into their home for a glimpse of local life. So how DID we communicate!?? Through laughter and hand gestures ;) We overcame language barriers through food. It was that simple. My enthusiasm for that meal was a direct reflection of the hospitality of Mukaram and her family. Sharing food with a local family is not just about simply tasting the food, itโ€™s also about connecting and building a relationship. Next time youโ€™re in another country try and look for ways to interact with local people over a just may give you a more unique insight into local traditions and the culture. . ๐™๐™„๐™‹: ๐™ˆ๐™ฎ ๐™—๐™ก๐™ค๐™œ ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™๐™ฏ๐™—๐™š๐™ ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ฃ ๐™๐™–๐™จ ๐™ข๐™ค๐™ง๐™š ๐™™๐™š๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ž๐™ก๐™จ ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ซ๐™–๐™ง๐™ž๐™ค๐™ช๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™ค๐™ง๐™ ๐™จ๐™๐™ค๐™ฅ๐™จ ๐™„ ๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ค๐™  ๐™ฅ๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™๐™ค๐™ฌ ๐™ž๐™ฉ ๐™–๐™ก๐™ก๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™š๐™™ ๐™ข๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™š ๐™™๐™š๐™š๐™ฅ๐™š๐™ง ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ฃ๐™š๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ฎ ๐™–๐™จ ๐™– ๐™ง๐™š๐™จ๐™ช๐™ก๐™ฉ. ๐™‡๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™  ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™—๐™ž๐™ค. @๐™–๐™ž๐™ง๐™—๐™ฃ๐™—๐™š๐™ญ๐™ฅ๐™š๐™ง๐™ž๐™š๐™ฃ๐™˜๐™š๐™จ ๐™ž๐™จ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง๐™ง๐™ž๐™›๐™ž๐™˜ ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ฎ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ข๐™š๐™š๐™ฉ ๐™ก๐™ค๐™˜๐™–๐™ก๐™จ ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ž๐™ฅ๐™จ. .

10 Reasons Why You Need to Visit Osnabruck

For instance, when I recently traveled to Northern Germany on a Historic Highlights trip and visited the historical city of Osnabruck, hiding just a quick 20-minute train ride away from the biking capital of Germany, Munster, I was taken aback at how much Osnabruck had to offer. Osnabruckโ€™s historic center (Altstadt) with its tiny alleys is the perfect place to get far away from the bustling crowds of the bigger cities like Munich and Berlin. Donโ€™t miss strolling through the historic town hall, St Maryโ€™s Church (the Marienkirche) and the Gable houses (where the Hanseatic merchants used to live) toward the marketplace, including St Peterโ€™s Cathedral. As a solo female traveler, I was apprehensive about attending the wine festival, but it was so easy to go up to one of the stalls, buy a glass of wine and find an empty table to sit at and listen to the live band.

One of my favorite spots to photograph in San Miguel de Allende is in this street - Aldama! Itโ€™s the money shot of the Parroquia de San Miguel, one of the prettiest churches I have ever seen! What do you think of this view!? . ๐“๐ข๐ฉ: ๐€๐ฏ๐จ๐ข๐ ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ง๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ฌ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐š๐Ÿ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ง๐จ๐จ๐ง ๐š๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฅ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐ข๐ฌ๐งโ€™๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐›๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐จ๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ž๐ญ ๐š๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ข๐ฆ๐ž. . #sanmigueldeallende #sanmiguel #sanmiguelarcangel #sanmiguelallende #visitmexico๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ #visitmรฉxico #visitsanmigueldeallende #mexicomagico #mexicogreatshots #indiantravelblogger #passionpassport #prettylittlecities #mexico_fotos #mexico_capital #mexico_amazing #mexico_great_shots #mexicotravel #mexicocityofficial #colonialtowns #afarmedia #travelandleisure #travelandleisureindia #natgeocreative #natgeoyourshot #natgeoindia #telltnlindia #parroquiadesanmiguelarcangel

10 Things to do in Munster

What really stood out to me about this city is the prevalence of cycling amongst ALL ages, the conservation efforts of the Allwetterzoo, the astronomical clock inside the cathedral, the three man sized cages on the spire of St. Lambertโ€™s Church and the tower keeper. City Hall (Friedensaal, Hall of Peace): Walk toward Prinzipalmarkt and gaze a moment at the historical city hall, a 14th century Gothic building, with its high Gable (pronounced geeble) that was reconstructed after WW2. One of the top 10 things to do in Munster is to visit the city hall, especially the Friedensaal (Hall of Peace), where part of the Peace of Westphalia was confirmed in this hall, ending the Thirty Yearsโ€™ War. St Lambertโ€™s Church: Once you leave the city hall and turn right you will come face to face with St. Lambertโ€™s Church, in Gothic architecture.

โ€œGoPro take photoโ€ became the slogan of this 8 day trek to the Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal! Last year I partnered with a boutique company in Nepal @firstlightadv and formed a team of 9 to embark on this journey with me to base camp! It turned out to be full of fun, laughter, discovering my own strengths and weaknesses, making new friends, meeting locals, eating, and really feeling the essence of Nepal and the Himalayas. I decided to shoot a video using @gopro entirely for this trip because it was easier than my Sony DSLR which I still used for photography. The video is being edited as we speak ..but in the meantime hereโ€™s the group that made it on this trip! Stay tuned for some other group trips Iโ€™ll be putting together for this year!
