So, yeah. I'm still filtering through Portugal photos... on Saint Patrick's Day. 😆 BUT, 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗣𝗼𝗿𝘁𝘂𝗴𝗮𝗹 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝗹𝗹𝘂𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗧𝗘𝗡 𝗺𝗼𝗻𝘂𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝗰𝗿𝗼𝘀𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗿𝘆 𝗶𝗻 𝗵𝗼𝗻𝗼𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆?

In Paris Spread over 75 acres, Jardin des Plantes is actually the main botanical garden in Paris, located in the famous Latin Quarter (5th arrondissement) near the Seine. Some of the top attractions worth visiting in Jardin des Plantes are the Menagerie, Natural History Museum, Alpine Garden, Labyrinthe, Rose Garden, and six greenhouses, just to name a few. This beautiful park is great for getting a glimpse of local life, far from the city’s tourist attractions. While most tourists in Paris flock to the Eiffel Tower to get a bird’s-eye view of the Paris skyline, many of them aren’t aware that there’s another tower in the city that actually offers an even better view
SO. I [obviously] have a BUNCH of favorite travel resources and apps. But before I reveal all, I want to hear what YOURS are. 💕 𝗚𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝘁 𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗦𝗧 𝗼𝗻𝗲—𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗯𝗹𝘆 𝗧𝗛𝗥𝗘𝗘—𝗼𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗮𝘃𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝘃𝗲𝗹 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗲𝘀, 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘀, 𝘀𝗶𝘁𝗲𝘀, 𝗼𝗿 𝗯𝗼𝗼𝗸𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗕𝗘𝗟𝗢𝗪. 📱 Can't wait to hear what everyone lists! 📸: This little nugget—𝗔𝗷𝘂𝗱𝗮 𝗕𝗼𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗚𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗻—is tucked away in the Belém neighborhood of Lisbon. Now, Belém is on the outskirts of downtown, and a lot of folks go there to explore the riverfront. 🌊 But you won't find Ajuda there EITHER. It's about a mile walk up the hill from the Jeronimos Monastery. 𝗧𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝘁𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗰𝗸 𝗶𝘁 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗶𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂'𝗿𝗲 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗶𝗻 𝗟𝗶𝘀𝗯𝗼𝗻! 🇵🇹
With talking pictures, debauchery posters, and a speakeasy to finish off your tour, it’s definitely one of the best things to do in Savannah, Georgia. Another one of my fav things to do in Savannah, Georgia is to stroll through Bonaventure Cemetery. And that makes it one of the best things to do in Savannah, Georgia! With all the available options, it’s hard not to include eating, drinking, and shopping as one of the best things to do in Savannah, Georgia.
Good night, good night, El Paso! 👋 Parting is such sweet sorrow. You were absolutely incredible, friend. ❤️ But I’ve gotta get this travel show on the road. Meep, meep! 🚗 Up next ➡️ New Mexico!!! Stay tuned, y’all! P.S. That “❌” in the distance on the third photo is the “X” from “M-E-X-I-C-O” that’s spelled across the border. Cute, right? 😉 What’s today’s amazing offering, you ask? 💎 How about FREE tickets to next week’s @sheswanderful women’s virtual travel conference?!? 🤗 There’s a FREE beginner blogging bootcamp 👩🏻💻 AND a ton of FREE keynotes 🗣—launching a business during a pandemic, influencing & travel agents, ethics of travel during Covid, and engaging with politics on social platforms. It’s gonna be awesome!!! 👉 Get your FREE tix in my bio link!!! (...Did I mention they’re FREE?) 💸
The bridge wasn’t exactly what I’d expected from the photos, but I tried to get some nice photos out of it. Unfortunately, the main drag was filled with tourists and little shops, but just one road over, you got the same little houses minus the crowds. It was a super pretty monastery and all the locals have said we must go, but I’d seen so many monasteries at this point… Walked to the Ajuda Botanical Gardens of Belem from there. We walked through a couple of cool areas (Pink Street), but I was busy being a brat, and didn’t realize some of the spots we went through had much more to see than… what I saw.
📣 It's official: I'm declaring ALL Tuesdays Global Debauchery TRAVEL TIP TUESDAYS. 📣 That means, in addition to the already awesome, jam-packed info I provide every other day of the week, you can ALWAYS count on me to give the best of the best travel tips... on Tuesdays. ❤️ So, what's in store for today? Well, I touched on this a bit in yesterday's post, but I'm gonna go all in on it today. Want to REALLY get to know City XYZ? Head for their arts district. 🎨 Mural hunting is the new, trendy travel thing to do, of course, but you can discover SO much more than those lone angel wings on the side of Cafe Yadda Yadda for The Gram. Do better. And dive in. 🤸♂️ ✴️ You can find entire art walks outlined on a lot of city visitor's bureaus sites. 💻 Not only will they lead you past the more obscure artworks a city offers, they offer you a tour of downtown overall. It's free entertainment and a great educational opportunity. ✴️ Google travel blogs. 🌎 Lots of bloggers specialize in specific cities, know ALL the mural locations, and—as a new friend pointed out yesterday—they'll also tell you all the little details you wish you'd known beforehand. ✴️ Grab ahold of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. 🤗 There's an entire Picasso exhibit happening in Nashville right now, an immersive Van Gogh exhibit in Cleveland, and a new Yayoi Kusama in New York. These exhibits usually only stay in one place for a few months, and they may or may not make their way to your neck of the woods otherwise. 👉 Do you have any artsy tips to add? What's happening in the art world in your city right now? What've been some of your favorite art cities around the world?
Now, Philippe told us that Sintra, Portugal is actually a microclimate, but I didn’t truly understand what that meant until we got there. What it meant was that, while it’s 90 degrees every day in Lisbon, it’s cold, rainy, and so foggy Pena Palace is fairly famous and, if you admire travel photos at all, you’ve probably seen this one—a bright red and yellow tiered fairytale castle in the mountains of Portugal. The town of Sintra, Portugal—our first stop—is in the mountains and, periodically, in the little streets, they have intricate little fountains with spring water that you can just drink straight from.
Happy Monday, y’all! 🤗 What kinda trouble did everyone get into this weekend?!? 😈😇 Tell me EVERYTHING!!! For anyone visiting El Paso, might I recommend a little weekend hiking in Franklin Mountains State Park? 🥾 It’s the largest urban park in the United States, offers crazy views of the city, has some rock climbing opps 🧗🏻♀️, AND Aztec caves with petroglyphs. I mean... ✋🎤. The highest point of the park is over 7,000 ft, while park HQ sits at just over 5k. ...In Texas. 🤷🏻♀️ What more could you ask for from a state park, seriously? What’s your all-time favorite state park?👇
I’m thinking... It feels like a Global Debauchery TRAVEL TIPS kinda day!!! 🤗 One of my fav days. I LOVE digging deep and seeking authenticity in any given place I travel, going beyond your standard tourist stops. ❤️ And people ALWAYS ask me how I find the places I find. So here are a few of my TOP TIPS on tracking down some TRUE travel experiences:🔎 🔸 One of my favorite NEW tips? Dig into local coffee shops. I fell in love with @elpasocoffeebox,☕️ a renovated train car with an outdoor deck and mural on one side. And they had some super different craft coffee drinks, too—like horchata lattes and charcoal frappes! 🔸 Track down arts districts. 🎨 They're almost always in some sort of "up-and-coming" neighborhood, covered in murals, and there's a TON of small business shopping to be done here. 🔸 Discover the weird and the wonderful. 👽 One of my favorite sites to peruse is @atlasobscura. THIS is where you'll find some REAL off-the-beaten-path things to do! And create some whacky memories. 🔸 Visit the local food market. 🍎 Better yet (and assuming you aren't vegetarian), visit the local meat market. 🥩 Try all the samples and chat up the vendors. 🔸 Do ONE thing that SCARES you. Figure out what the big local adventure activity is and DO IT. 😱 Shark cage diving on the North Shore? Okay. Tour the DMZ from Seoul? Sure. That abandoned railway tunnel in Paris? Absolutely. What are some of your tips for traveling DEEPER? Tell me everything!👇
