London calling! There’s always something so special every time we visit London. Maybe it’s a mixture of the charming quaint buildings, red phone booths, or the old-school taxis. Or perhaps it’s the cute British boys with their cute British accents everywhere in sight. But you know what isn’t all that special? The weather (surprise, surprise).
Have you ever traveled somewhere where everything just kept going wrong? If you have, you know it is not fun, and it can really ruin a vacation. Although it is adventurous to go with the flow every now and then, traveling to a new place in a time crunch can get pretty stressful.
When you think of Paris, what comes to mind? The Eiffel Tower? The famous Louvre? Brie and baguettes? Or is it the warm, mouth-watering chocolate croissants found at almost every street? It’s all the above.
The main attractions of Paris are enough to convince anyone to book a ticket to this romantic city. What they don’t tell you is that despite it’s high tourist attraction, this city also has hidden gems. As much as we love exploring the famous sights that make a city endearing, we are keen on discovering more of the unknown places.
So, here’s how to exceed being an average tourist and instead, explore the hidden gems of Paris.
New York City. The ultimate city that never sleeps, the city with all of the lights, the city we all dream about from movies. If you’re like us and grew up watching Gossip Girl or Sex & the City as your girly guilty pleasure, then NYC was always on top of your list of places to visit. This city is home to thousands of the coolest restaurants, hip bars, museums, landmarks, and the list drags on. The number of things (yes, free too) you could do here are endless.
While growing up, we often thought the globe was our toy. We remember spending hours spinning the globe with our eyes closed, and wherever our fingers landed on, was the place we would choose to learn about.
So, Bali, huh? Either you just watched Eat Pray Love for the first time or you have seen breathtaking images all over your social media channels, Bali is calling your name. I don’t blame you – it was calling ours too.
After researching when to visit Bali, we decided to pull the trigger. After college graduation, we and our friends spontaneously booked a trip to Bali exploring these three areas: Ubud, Canggu, and Uluwatu.
