The first thing people think of when they hear ‘Salt Lake City’ is ‘The Great Salt Lake‘. The lake is a great tourist and recreational place to explore because of how many different viewing points there are, but that’s not all there is to the city. If nature and hiking isn’t your thing, try out our 2 day Salt Lake City itinerary, where a full day is dedicated to exploring Salt Lake City.
Looking for a place where you’ll find many Instagrammers, bloggers, and vloggers? Well you’ll find them all at the Hall of Breakfast in Salt lake City. This is a large pop up location that has all the interactive backdrops you’d ever want and imagine to have on your feed. If you saw something cutesy on your feed lately, it was probably at the Hall of Breakfast.
Whether you live in Arizona or not, this is definitely a place you need to stop by or add to your bucket list and Grand Canyon itinerary. It’s not a stop that takes consumes too much time and would easily fit within any schedule you have planned. The views are mesmerizing and no photos can truly capture the feeling you get when you look over the Colorado River. It’s a spot you shouldn’t forget to visit.
A hotspot in everyone’s travel list is the Grand Canyon. It’s a great place with beautiful views and easy hikes, making it perfect for everyone! However, because it’s such a popular location to visit, trying to find a hotel to sleep at can be difficult. Most lodges within the Grand Canyon are extremely expensive and very booked up. Luckily, I found out where to stay for the Grand Canyon: Williams, Arizona.
When you mention Ontario, what many people talk about often is: Toronto. Vaughan, Ontario is technically part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), so it is often overlooked in terms of photography. People often assume the only place to get trendy photos is Toronto because of the hipster, social media-catered restaurants and many art exhibitions that get put up weekly. I’m here to tell you that Vaughan too, has many instagram-worthy locations that you may have overlooked.
Photography is a great way to capture memories and share them quickly. I love being able to show friends and family the travels that I’ve gone on and seeing places I want to go next. However, living vicariously never matches up to seeing and experiencing things in person, but it does get pretty close with some basic photography equipment!
To get the best content, I have a variety of photography equipment essentials that I use listed in this post. But to be clear, you don’t need to best equipment to get the best photos or videos. It does improve the quality, but there’s no need to buy the most high-end products. It’s the photographer that makes the photos great.
Anyone who lives in Ontario knows, the best places to take photos is either up north in more natural settings, or in the heart of Toronto. Toronto has many great photography spots all around the city. A little walking around, and you’ll have lots of photos snapped. However, what about the spots no one thinks to look? I lived in Vaughan, so I often took trips to the city and have familiarized myself with some hidden or neglected photography spots.
If you’re looking to visit a location that’s not a hot-spot for tourists, Ancona, Italy is the place to go. Although it is not on many “to go” lists like Venice, the city still has a lot of the European culture integrated into it. There is the option of visiting wineries, vineyards, or just visiting town to see what the locals are up to. But the main place to look out for is the Frasassi Caves.
A trip to the Arizona Grand Canyon is great to plan if you’re looking for breathtaking views and a dose of the past. The Canyon itself is a history book, showing layer by layer how long ago it has existed. Even the Vishnu Basement Rock layer has been around for 1840-1680 million years. The colorado river had even once filled the many crevices 5-6 millions years ago and at one point, people of the past called this place home. Luckily now, it is safe for us to visit and take a look at the past. If you’re limited on time, here’s my 1 day Arizona Grand Canyon Itinerary.
The Great Salt Lake is an important part of what Salt Lake City is known for. The salt density is so high, if you lay on your back in the water, you will just float. The Great Salt Lake is also known for having a beach, camping, and picnic areas. The media isn’t wrong, it has all those things, but it has more that may make you second guess whether or not you want to book a vacation to visit it.
When you think of influencers and Instagrammers, the first thing you think of is California or LA. It’s typically the place where many successful entrepreneurs live and post on their social media. I took a trip to Los Angeles to see if it really matched up to the pictures and lifestyle portrayed online. Here’s where I visited to simulate a typical Instagram day in LA.
Travelling is fun, everyone loves it. However, there are certain situations that can arise that you never considered- even the minor things! I travelled for nearly a whole month straight to different places and only brought a carry on. The space was limited, but it fit the travel essentials I needed and used during the trip. So here’s a list of things I carry and have learned to bring next time I go pack to travel.
Travel isn’t cheap, and travelling for long periods just adds to the cost. To minimize the fees, we decided to visit Rome, Italy for only two days to see everything we wanted to see. Granted, if you stayed longer, you could fully immerse yourself more with the culture, food, and history, but 2 days is more than enough to explore major tourist and notable points. Here’s our 2 day Rome Itinerary that covers most major attractions.
Santorini, Greece is an island that we’ve all seen plastered on social media. We instantly recognize the blue building tops with the clean, white architecture and sunny weather. From an outsider’s view, it looks like a beautiful vacation get away spot that you’ll remember forever. However, if you’re planning on visiting, do know that it’s not as jolly as everyone makes it look online.
Split, Croatia is a hot spot for tourists looking for beautiful crystal clear waters, sunny weather, and delicious local food. Sometimes, it can get overwhelming for a first-timer to see so many foreigners in one location. Especially around the docks where cruise ships like mine let passengers off, it can get pretty hectic. So here’s how you can get the best view in Split, Croatia from above without being pushed around or brushing against other sweaty tourists.
