Highlights
Gallery Stroll & Art on Canyon Road, Santa Fe

Situated just east of the Santa Fe Plaza, Canyon Road is home to many art galleries selling artwork created by famous artists, hand-woven Navajo rugs and Southwestern wood carvings. Santa Fe is famous for its museums — New Mexico Museum of Art, Museum of International Folk Art, IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts When we were in Santa Fe, most museums were still closed due to COVID, so we spent an afternoon admiring public art, gallery strolling and popping into the different studios – there are more than 150 galleries along Canyon Road in Santa Fe, where you can find everything from jewelry and pottery to sculptures and paintings. The best way to experience this art district is simply by strolling down Canyon Road to admire all the public art and it is a wonderful way to experience art even if you don’t want to go inside the galleries.

Madeira: Best things to do & a special Spring Flower Festival

Madeira Island is World’s and Europe’s Leading Island Destination 2020 according to World Travel Awards. It has been on my travel wishlist for some time, so here is a complete guide to the best things to do, see and eat in Maderia, Portugal including popular well known attractions, hidden gems, and the best place to see flowers. Fajã da Rocha do Navio in Santana, Fajã dos Padres or Fajã da Quebrada Nova in Achadas da Cruz – three different secluded areas located by the ocean, which are very hard to reach as they are located on the bottom of very high cliffs. During this week’s long event, there are daily concerts, dance performances, flower exhibitions and all sorts of flower-related attractions, flower markets selling flower bulbs, exotic fruit and even street carpets made of flower petals.

11 Best Wine Regions in France

Starting in the East by the German border, we have the Alsace/Lorraine Region, known for its exceptional white wine cépage, they produce great Riesling & Gewurztraminer wines. Stuck between the Pyrenees mountain range and the Bordeaux region up North, the South West Region is the land of the cabernets wines. Last but not least the largest wine region of France, the Loire Valley, also known as the other Champagne region due to its ever-improving production of quality bubbly from Chardonnay cépage. Contrast pairing: pick a wine which aromas will pair with your food, sweet and salty, tannic and spicy (as in spices), sweet and spicy (as in hot) Overall, the wine regions of France are undoubtedly some of the best and most famous in the world.

One day in Nara Park: Ancient Temples & Sacred Deer that bow for biscuits

The ancient city of Nara is known for its beautiful temples, the 15m-high Bronze Buddha statue, and sacred deer that bow for biscuits. But the deer at Nara Park are still protected and the Nara Park deer are designated as national treasures. Nara Park is beautiful year-round (we visited in December), but especially beautiful in Spring when cherry blossoms are blooming.

Woke up to a foggy morning and for a moment thought I was in one of my favorite places... I have fond memories of taking the blue heritage train that still runs on a steam railway line, visiting tea estates, gardens, and hiking... Also known as Udhagamandalam, Ooty is a hill station( mountain resort town) in the Western Ghats mountains, in South India. It is called the Queen of Hills for a reason. Have you been? More photos on the blog if you haven’t... Just search for Ooty #ooty #travelmemories #flashbackfriday #queenofhills #tamilnadu #incredibleindia #ootydiaries #chennai

What a historic day 🇺🇸 What a moving ceremony ✨ ... yes, we are far from polished, far from pristine, but that doesn’t mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect. We are striving to forge our union with purpose. To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man. And so we lift our gaze, not to what stands between us, but what stands before us. We close the divide because we know to put our future first, we must first put our differences aside... - Amanda Gorman #inauguration2021 #historywasmade #ceilingsbroken #presidentialinauguration #unitedstatesofamerica🇺🇸

Another great Restaurant in Plano with a lovely outdoor patio and amazing food - @forkandfireplano Located below Highway 121 @boardwalkgranitepark has many restaurants with patios and chairs around a little lake to enjoy some of that Texas sunshine. I had a Fiery pineapple Margarita with muddled jalapeños and Mr. Suburbia had an old fashioned. The Pastrami eggrolls with gruyere, pickles and kraut were delish. So were the burgers and flatbread at this scratch kitchen. Now you can get your drinks to go from one of the many restaurants here to enjoy at the boardwalk. #planorestaurants #boardwalkplano #forkandfire #dallasfoodie #dallasrestaurants #planotexas

Brunching 🥂 I find myself @whiskeycake quite often lately, Mr. Suburbia likes the Egg Benedict and French Press coffee here, they have a nice outdoor patio that has heaters, the drinks are delicious... wish they had a few more options for vegetarians. #planotexas #planorestaurants #brunch #dallas #dallasrestaurants #friscotexas #vegetarian

Made it through another week of 2021 and dreaming of somewhere warm and blue! This was the Presidential water bungalow we saw as we approached our little villa @conradboraboranui How amazing would it be to wake up here on this multi level overwater villa with turquoise lagoon views, sun beds, an infinity pool, fully stocked mini bar and a personal butler. I’m dreaming big today 😉 What places are you dreaming of visiting? #overwaterbungalow #borobora #frenchpolynesia #moorea

Well, that snow from yesterday didn’t stick around... but it had me thinking about this place in Japan where we saw ❄️ and lots of it! Shirakawa-go is a group of a beautiful, historic villages remotely located in Gifu Prefecture, which is situated in the Japanese Alps. Gassho-zukuri is a unique architecture style special for this area of Japan. They are steep straw-roofed homes made of wood. Due to harsh and unforgiving winters with a lot of snow, the roofs of the houses are steeply angled to prevent the snow from piling up. Was a beautiful day trip filled with gorgeous scenery and lots of snow ❄️❄️❄️ . ———————————————————— 👭Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest: OutsideSuburbia 📝More travel stories, itineraries and photos at OutsideSuburbia.com ———————————————————— #japan #japanesealps #shirakawago #osinjapan #winterwonderland #wanderfolk #traveldeeper #lifewelltravelled #luxurytravel #iamatraveler #familytravel #luxurytravelblogger

Hello friends! Hope you survived the first Monday of 2021 ok! I thought I will start the new year by introducing ourselves here. We are Priya, Vinod, Sneha and D, part-time travelers, neither backpackers nor jetsetters, just your regular working for the weekend kinda people with a passion to see the world… to explore, experience and enjoy… one trip at a time! 👩🏻‍💼Sneha @snesnickersphotodiary is our first born who is doing her final year of University in California specializing in Genentics. She writes for her school paper and hopes to publish a children's book this year. 🙎🏻‍♂️D @dharin19 is our baseball loving, fashionista son who is a senior this year. As the admissions start rolling in my heart skips a beat at the thought of being empty nesters soon. 🤵🏻Vinod aka Mr. Suburbia loves the Dallas Cowboys. He likes the finer things in life. While he enjoys landscape and wildlife photography, has absolutely no patience for Instagrammy lifestyle ones. Finally, Priya 🙋‍♀️ I work full time but this space is my creative outlet. I’m a dreamer, a wanderer at heart – my bucket list is big and seems to grow even more after starting this blog. I believe in living each day to it's fullest and finding JOY in the little things! I started this account and blog in 2015 but we have been traveling as a family long before that. We look our daughter on her first trip to Washington DC and California when she was only 3 months old! I took her on a mom and daughter trip to France and Italy when she was 3 years old. ✈️ While I dream of slow and extended travel and living in Chennai, London, Paris, Lisbon, Milan for a few months... 'burbs of Dallas will always be home! I hope to share more about all the fun spots, especially restaurants🥂 and businesses 🛍 in and around Dallas this year along with other travel inspiration 🌎 Your turn.
