Day Trip to Cassis (And How to Get There)

If your story book, quant little Mediterranean coast town existed, Cassis France would be the place. With its adorable boat dock, its narrowed cobble stone streets, and the incredible Calanques park a few steps away, Cassis will charm you away. What I didn't know was how complicated it would be to get there from Marseille without a car (as well as getting back). Stick around to discover all the picturesque corners of this not so hidden gem off the Cote d Azur!

Granada Photo Diary

Going to Granada for the second time with my family reminded me of how spectacular and majestical the city is in every corner and nook. From dinner facing the Alhambra to a family-run tea shop (or teteria), here are some shots taken throughout our time there and their respective locations. Enjoy!

Toledo Sunset Guide

This past September, we were lucky enough to see Toledo for the first time during one of it's magical sunsets. However, before arriving to the medieval city, my family and I were a little overwhelmed with the amount of "restaurants with views" there were and did not want to fall into the classic tourist trap (you know those- the ones with incredible views, skyrocket prices, and not-so incredible food). After a little research, we ended up visiting the Mirador del Valle during sunset and dining at the Restaurant La Ermita. To say the least, it was certainly an incredible evening with an unforgettable gastronomical experience and breathtaking views.

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure to visit Granada and stay at the amazing Hotel Casa 1800 Granada. From its quaint little Andalusian patio to its gorgeous wooden decor, this hotel can't be missed if you're visiting this bohemian city.
