While in Europe, I got to visit Italy for the first time, and it was pretty dreamy. We drove in from Austria, and started our visit in Venice, or Venezia if you’re Italian. It completely blew away my expectations, and I even loved the quintessential tourist activities. From gondolas to gelato, Italy is magical, and these were some of my favorite moments.
Pink Churches & Apple Strudel
After waving a bittersweet farewell to Germany, we arrived for a brief stay in the beautiful city of Innsbruck, Austria. My only experience of Austria had been a day trip to Saltzburg, so I was excited to see a new part of such a stunning country. Innsbruck was a convenient stop on our way to Italy, and while we didn’t spend much time in it, we had a grand time exploring. Highlights for me? Pink churches and apple strudel!
The first part of my adventure found me in one of my favorite countries, Germany. Don’t tell, but I’m already trying to contrive a way to go back on a hiking trip! Our plane flew into Stuttgart, and we spent the first evening wandering around the beautiful old city. I had been to Stuttgart once before, but I didn’t remember it very well, so it was fun to walk around and get a feel for it again. I love the intricate old palaces, and blue-green copper accents sprinkled in among red roofs. The next day we headed off to Neuschwanstein Castle of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fame– also one of my favorite places for a bit of hiking!
An Adventure Abroad
Hi friends! It’s been far too long since I last posted here, and if you follow me on Instagram, you probably know why. I’ve been in Europe for the past two weeks, and I had an absolutely wonderful time! I hadn’t traveled abroad in six years, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed exploring new places. I visited Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, and England, and I have so many photos that I can’t wait to share here on the blog. Travel has a way of reminding me of who I am and what matters to me, and I’ve returned refreshed and ready to dive in to some creative ideas, and of course, blogging.
I love YouTube. One of my favorite ways to chill out after work is to make a good cup of tea or coffee, and sit down to catch up on my favorite channels. When I first started to get into the YouTube world, most of the channels I watched focused primarily on makeup and skincare, but over the past couple of years, I’ve come to love channels that focus on personal style. I love the creativity that goes into each video, and I always walk away with inspiration for new ways to wear the items in my closet. Since fashion channels are a little more difficult to come across, today I’m rounding up my four current favorites.
