Santorini coming in hot with the best view of 2022! 🇬🇷 I just left this beautiful island and would you believe if I told you I had it practically to myself? 😍 The island closes from November to March so instead of having to fight hundreds of people for the best picture spots, it was nearly empty. Not many people get to see Santorini like this. It was incredible! Stay tuned to my stories for more of my trip with @celestyalcruises 🚢 Wishing you and yours a happy New Year, and more breathtaking views in 2023 🥂 #celestyalcruises #santorinigreece #santorinitravel #santoriniisland #santoriniview #santorinisecrets #bestviewof2022 #epictravel #greekislands #offseasontravel #travelviews

Pro tips for flying during a busy season: 1️⃣ Take the first flight of the day. It’s less likely to be delayed as you’re not waiting on the plane to arrive from somewhere else. 2️⃣ Invest in CLEAR. I saved hours this morning by going straight to the scanner and not having to wait in the security line. 3️⃣ Book your flight with a travel credit card. Many of them have trip delay and cancellation insurance so if anything goes wrong, you’re covered and can get reimbursed for expenses. Shout out to @delta for the awesome service on Christmas Day and a handwritten note on my boyfriend’s seat! What’s one flying tip you swear by?

Have you ever tasted a proper stroopwafel? It’s supposed to be warm and soft, not cold and crispy! I learned from a master stroopwafel maker while in Gouda, Netherlands. His family has been doing this for 6 generations and they make 20k-25k waffles a day 🧇 I also learned there’s no butter in the waffle dough itself since it’s cooked at a really high temperature. There’s plenty of butter in the syrup filling tho 😋 Cooking classes are one of my top things to do while traveling. You learn about the local culture and get a new recipe for the road 🧑‍🍳 Follow @jenonajetplane to stop waiting and start living ✈️ #stroopwafel #stroopwafels #thenetherlandstourism #travelnetherlands #goudacity #travelfoodie #travelfoodlove #travelforfood #foodietravel #foodtravels #foodtravelers

Looking for a bucket list trip for summer 2023? The south of France is an absolute dream in the summer! I did a week-long road trip around the area by myself. It felt safe, the language barrier was manageable, and I found private accommodations for as low as $50/night. This trip gets expensive the longer you wait so if you’re interested you should start looking at flights NOW. Have you seen any parts of France beyond Paris?

Welcome to Freiburg, Germany! On this day, we docked in Breisach, on the edge of the Black Forest where Hansel and Gretel were from 🌳 Then we took a shuttle bus into Freiburg to explore the shops and Christmas market, and listen to a special holiday organ concert inside the cathedral at 11am 🎶 This was one of my favorite Christmas markets because it was large, but not to the point where the vendors were repetitive. I saw some gifts here I didn’t find anywhere else! It was also part farmer’s markets and I found myself wishing I’d had a home there to being back fresh ingredients and wreaths 🛍️ What’s your favorite part of visiting a Christmas market — the food, the shopping, or the decorations?

The perfect vacation does exist! 🎁 Here’s where I went on an 8-day river cruise focused on Christmas markets 🧑‍🎄 I traveled to 4 countries, seeing 8 Christmas markets in a little over a week, 4 of them at night. It was a shopping and eating extravaganza! If I had to pick, my top 3 would be: 1️⃣ Cologne for the size, quality of stalls, and activities like an ice rink 2️⃣ Freiburg for the unique gifts and vendors 3️⃣ Strasbourg for the lights at night and biggest Christmas tree in Europe Are Christmas markets on your bucket list?

What’s the best Christmas market in Europe for holiday lights? Strasbourg, France! 🇫🇷 This is the oldest Christmas market in Europe and has the biggest tree — even bigger than the one at Rockefeller Center🎄 The display of floating angels in front of the cathedral is divine and they have over 300 stalls throughout the city. They don’t call it the Capital of Noel for nothing! 🎁 Do you put up Christmas lights at your house?

12 Fun Things to do in Vieques, Puerto Rico On Your Next Visit

Whether you’re going for a week or a weekend, you’re going to want to bookmark this list! Vieques is a small island located off the coast of Puerto Rico and makes a great destination for those wanting a slower paced, tropical getaway. I personally found the snorkeling by Mosquito Pier (aka the “rompeolas”) to be the most enjoyable since the water was calm, visibility was clear and there is a lot of wildlife under the pier. Punta Mulas is beautifully restored and has a small museum inside covering the nature of the island and maritime history.
