There are a lot of things to do in Palm Springs. You can take the Palm Spring Tram up to the mountain for a hike, do some serious shopping, eat plenty of tacos, lay by the pool and admire all the fun flamingo floats or you can go on a fun Instagram tour.

We went to see amazing architecture, cactuses, city sights, palm trees and all the colorful doors, including “that pink door”! Continue reading

After all the holiday festivities, I am ready to detox and get back into the routine of everyday life.
We decided to go somewhere around Europe for New Years as a double celebration and ended up with Berlin! We debated different places to go and I used some of my top travel research resources to find the best place to go (more to come on that). I had never been to Berlin so I was excited to explore the city. Continue reading
