RIO DE JANEIRO

RIO DE JANEIRO

Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - land of samba and caipirinhas! This seaside city has been on my bucket list even before I studied Portuguese in college. When we discovered a nonstop flight back to Houston (and on points!), we bought our tickets and never looked back. 

ANTIGUA

ANTIGUA

Antigua, GUATEMALA -  Ok, I admit it. Guatemala never truly hit my travel radar. That changed after seeing photos from a family friend who went to Antigua on holiday (thanks, Casey!)...and I knew I was missing out. So when it was time for my good friend, Dorina, and I to take our annual trip, we decided to go off the beaten path. 

VIENNA

VIENNA

Vienna, AUSTRIA - named top city for highest quality of life in the world for the eighth time, we headed to this regal city to celebrate the New Year in style. Spoiler alert: we are all about Viennese pastries.

BUDAPEST

BUDAPEST

Budapest, HUNGARY - Competing with Prague and Vienna, this Central European city doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Budapest is one of four capital cities situated on the Danube River, which divides the region into two cities, Buda and Pest. We came to Hungary in search of "meat and potatoes" and thermal baths. By the end of our trip, we left wanting to extend our adventure.

MEXICO CITY

MEXICO CITY

Mexico City, MEXICO - Foodies rejoice! Just one and a half hours from Houston, CDMX is the ultimate destination for street food, aztec culture, and way too much tequila.
