    I would love to know where your dress is from in your pictures in Essaouira! It’s beautiful and perfect for traveling! Thanks!

      Hey Allie! That dress is a few years old…and I think I actually snagged it at one of the local shops! However, Free People is a typical go-to for me! You might also like Spell Designs: https://rstyle.me/+3kpHuAtalzQnRY1X5qACzQ

    Your blog has been amazingly helpful so thank you so much for all your hard work! Would love your recs on our Marrakesh itinerary this Aug (leave in 2 wks from LAX)….arrive Thursday evening late and have Friday/Sat/Sun full days in Marrakesh before being picked up Monday morning for glamping (heading to Fes/Chefchaouen after).

    Fri: Walk around Medina, see Ben Youssef Madrasa and Bahia Palace (possibly El Badi Palace Ruins??)–> seems we can do all in one day right?
    Sat: Day trip to Essaouira (driver or bus?) –>think this is reasonable? worth it? maybe kite surf?
    Sun: Head to Jardin Majorelle, maybe hamman but doesn’t seem that sanitary/exciting??

    Thanks for your input! We are three mid/late-30s women fyi.

Concerts are one of the most obvious “loud” environments where hearing damage can happen.

But let’s be real: traveling can be noisy AF sometimes – whether it’s crying babies or snoring men on the plane or just the hustle and bustle of a busy city.

With up to 30 dB of noise reduction, you can enjoy undisturbed sleep, enhanced focus during work or study sessions, and the ability to relax in noisy environments.

First off, how genius is the design? The curved shape perfectly fits your ear, blocking out all the unwanted noise without feeling like you’ve got something bulky shoved in there. The ergonomic design ensures a secure yet comfortable fit.

They’re also reusable and easy to clean, so you can say goodbye to those flimsy disposable ones that end up in a landfill —saving the planet *and* protecting your hearing. Yes, please!

So, whether you’re jet-setting across the globe or just trying to catch some Zzzs on your next road trip, do yourself a favor and snag a pair of these CURVD earplugs. Trust me, your ears will thank you later! 💖✈️ #ad
#EGPartner Every year, I like to put together a “travel bucket list” with inspiration for the coming year. @Expedia Group’s Unpack ’24 report was the perfect way to find out the latest travel trends for 2024 - thanks to @Expedia, @Hotelsdotcom, and @Vrbo!

Most of these bucket list items are not destination-specific, so I encourage you to use them as a launching pad for ideas, essentially some “choose your adventure” inspo!

🌟 Be a “Tour”ist: In 2023, Taylor Swift’s Eras and Beyoncé’s Renaissance tours’ cultural impact was undeniable, driving ticket sales, travel, and tourism. Expedia predicts that Tour Tourism will continue to thrive in 2024. If you’ve got a major concert or cultural experience on your bucket list, make 2024 your year to experience it!

🏠 Rent a Vacation Home: Since becoming a family of four (yes, we count our furbaby), we prioritize vacation homes whenever we travel. Last year, we stayed in an 18th-century farmhouse in Tuscany and a modern beachfront unit in Malibu. There’s something for everyone on @Vrbo! With separate bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, and living spaces, you can cook meals together, enjoy movie nights, and spend quality time together without feeling cramped or confined.

👯‍♀️ Take a Girls’ Trip: Are you itching to travel, but none of your friends are up for the adventure? Join @tbaescapes and go on a safari in South Africa, sail on a luxury Nile cruise in Egypt, witness the Petra in Jordan, go glamping in the Sahara Desert in Morocco, and discover one of the most remote wildlife destinations on earth, The Galapagos Islands!

🌏 Visit a Wonder of the World: Each of the wonders provides a unique and awe-inspiring experience, showcasing the ingenuity and creativity of humankind, and they are symbols of human achievement that stand the test of time. Make 2024 your year to visit the Great Pyramid of Giza or Machu Picchu!
