10 tips for your first trip to Australia

Australia is the birthplace of The Blonde Abroad and it’ll always hold a special place in my heart (I came up with the concept of this very blog while sitting at a cafe near Sydney Harbour!). When I first left the corporate world in search of something else, my first stop was Australia. I spent nearly two months living on the East coast of Oz and I couldn’t get enough!  The country has a beauty and diversity unlike anywhere else—there’s the cool coastal city of Sydney, the...

The best destinations to travel to in August

Summer is going to be in full swing soon enough, and for those that want to plan the ultimate trip to finish off the sunny season—August is the best time to visit countless destinations around the globe!However, there are a few places that aren’t so ideal.

Exploring Havana

With only 48 hours in Havana, my best friend and I hit the ground running (or should I say got the wheels spinning?) We took a spin in a perfectly pink classic car, sipped mojitos and daiquiris (before 11am), and watched the famous cabaret at Hotel Nacional! A ton of things we did aren't featured in this video, so be sure to check out my blog posts on Havana!

Exploring Namibia

Namibia has become one of my all-time favorite African countries. I've visited on two occasions, and feel like I've barely scraped the surface of everything there is to see and do here.
