IMG_2307

Krabi is located on the west coast of Southern Thailand. Surrounded by beautiful beaches, yummy food, and friendly people.

The beach closest to our airbnb was so beautiful, this beach was called Ao Nang.

Railay Beach

IMG_4909

We went on taxi boat’s to beaches nearby like Railay Beach for about 300 baht ($3) !!

Railay Beach was about 10 minutes away from Ao Nang.

IMG_2051

This is Railay Beach! I cannot believe this is where I swam a few weeks ago. It makes me wanna cry. I miss it so much.

 

Tiger Cave Temple

IMG_4968

We rented a scooter to go see the Tiger Cave Temple.We had no idea that we were in for the workout of our lives.

IMG_4939

To get to the Tiger Cave Temple, you have to go up 1,237 steps. This may not sound like a lot but they were very very steep steps. Let me tell you, it was painful. Very painful.

IMG_4971The view was beautiful but I have to admit my legs were shaking on the way down. haha

IMG_4952

Although, I was in so much pain, the 1,237 steps (I cannot believe I am saying this) were worth it.

IMG_4936

On our way down we were greeted by cute little monkeys.

IMG_2309

There was a point where we went to this place for breakfast almost every morning.

Awh, I hope to go back again soon. I really enjoyed it. Thank you Lion & Shark ♡

 

Food in Ao Nang

IMG_2012

We had such amazing crab by the beach. This literally took us such a long time to eat but it was so worth. The spices in Thailand were delicious.

Thai Spicy Soup and Prawns.

Thai Curry and Pad Thai mmmm

Elephants ♡

We were able to ride the elephants, but we felt a little sad because it seemed like the animals were very mistreated 😦 stop animal cruelty please.

 

Other than that we had such an amazing time, thank you Thailand 🙂

IMG_2301

Can’t wait to go back again soon!

Playa Del Carmen, Mexico ♡

IMG_7721.JPG

Hello ♡

Recently my family and I went on a family vacation to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

img_7727

On our first day we relaxed and enjoyed the sun at a beach near our Airbnb.

                    img_7886    img_7776

On our second day we went to Akumal Beach.

We went snorkeling and swam with the turtles, also saw a few stingray!!

        img_8021

Here are a few pixelated photos my brother took of our adventures underwater!

The stingray were a bit scary for me…. I kept trying to swim in a horizontal position when we approached the stingray. My legs were definitely outside of the water. haha

img_7908  img_7924

On our third day we went to an aquatic theme park called XelHa where we went snorkeling, zip lining, cliff jumping (which only Andre – my brother did), swimming!

img_7928 img_7923

We even were able to swim in a Mayan Cave!

img_7911

We  even were able to spot a beautiful rainbow! Isn’t it beautiful?!

On our last day, we went to visit a few places: Cenote Chikin Ha, Tulum, and Xpu Ha.

img_8006

Cenote  is an underwater cave, there are a few in Mexico but we went to visit the Cenote called Chikin Ha.

IMG_7948.JPG

Look at how blue the water is! As the light reflects into the water it made a crystal blue color in the water. It was the clearest water I have ever seen. I wish the photos would do it justice.

img_7975

Later we went to visit the Maya Ruins in Tulum. This was so interesting to see.

 img_7990         img_7981

 Next to the ruins was a view of the beautiful ocean! So we decided to take a few photos.

      Later we enjoyed lunch at Xpu Ha Beach

img_8007

For our last dinner I had an amazing seafood pasta  in a restaurant located in 5th avenue of Playa Del Carmen.

I had such a great time and I cannot wait to go back again.

With so much love,

Panarea- Isole de Eolie, Italia ♡

IMG_0976

Sadly my trip to Italy is over but I am thankful to be able to look back at these beautiful pictures I took. During my trip to Italy I was able to visit two of the several islands in Isole de Eolie. My favorite by far was an island called Panarea.

IMG_0995

The buildings at Panarea were so beautiful and characteristic. I felt like I was in Santorini! This building behind me is a home…. isn’t it sooo dreamy?!

IMG_0996

The streets were very narrow. Believe it or not golf carts were able to pass by these tiny roads! They used the golf carts as taxis in Panarea which is something I have never seen before.

IMG_1006

The  buildings were white and with a few plants it  changed the atmosphere of every little street.

IMG_1008

I also was able to swim here. The water was so warm! Ahhh I want to go back!!

IMG_1036

This is me in my natural state enjoying a erba meditarranea granita (which had mint, finocchi (fennel), and lemon. I know it sounds kind of funky but it wasn’t guys it was soooooo good!

I can’t wait to go back!

I already miss you Panarea.

With so much love,

Baia di Riaci- Tropea, Italia ♡

IMG_0839

I have been relaxing in Reggio Calabria which is where my family lives (south of Italy, where the tip of the boot is). When we go to Reggio Calabria we go to the beach every single day! This time we went to Baia di Riaci which is by far my favorite beach in near Reggio.

IMG_0902

Look how beautiful the water looks.

IMG_0897

We rented a boat and went into the little caves- I couldn’t take pictures because I don’t have a waterproof case… I know I know, I will buy one soon!

IMG_0850

I love the ocean so much…the water is so beautiful.

IMG_0867

My brother and I

IMG_0886

I will definitely be missing this beach.

I literally swam 3 miles every time I was here.

Ti voglio tanto bene Baia di Riaci

with so much love,
