    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:

    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.

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
Charging up for my next adventure with the NEW @anker_official MagGo! 🌟
What’s the one product I *always* take when I travel? A power bank!

Like most people, when I travel, I’m out the entire day exploring without the ability to charge my phone.

And I use my phone a LOT for battery-draining functions like maps, transportation, and, of course, taking photos and videos.

The #AnkerMagGo can fully charge most iPhone models at 2x the speed of other 7.5W power banks.

I love the magnetic wireless charging and the built-in folding kickstand for an upright comfortable viewing angle.

No more tangled cords, just sleek, convenient charging on the go!
