With sun-drenched colonial plazas sitting beside ultramodern skyscrapers, Colombia’s capital city is a place of contrasts. If you only have 48 hours in Bogotá, there are some sights you have to hit.

Victoria Falls was a dream destination of mine for years. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, it is the largest waterfall on the planet and even more beautiful than I’d ever imagined!

I spent a few days this past summer exploring Québec to disconnect from the every day hustle. It was amazing to see the beauty of this destination, and to have so many diverse experiences with Tourisme Québec in just a few days. I camped lakeside, went zip lining through the forest, tried delicious gourmet specialties (including poutine of course!), and relaxed at a floating spa that was once an operating ferry boat. There's so much to be explored in and just outside of the city.

Looking back on my 2nd #TBAescapes South Africa Photography Tour with FUJIFILM X Series US! 📷
For 9 days, I showed an incredible group of women around some of my favorite spots in South Africa! We dug deep into Cape Town— watched the sunset from Clifton Beach, hiked to the top of Lion’s Head, experienced aerial views of the coastline from a helicopter, explored the colorful neighborhood of Bo-Kaap, ate our hearts out at the Old Biscuit Mill, and took a tour around the street art of Woodstock. We experienced a Big 5 Safari at Gondwana Game Reserver— complete with hippos, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and zebras! And we sipped our way through the Cape Winelands— indulging in fancy wine pairings and farm-to-table food at Boschendal wine farm. It was an absolute blast and I’m so fortunate to have shared the experience with such a wonderful group of women. I can’t wait to welcome our next group next week!

Ever wondered about this?
Since moving to South Africa I have been back and forth from the states a few times. While it's a LONG journey, there are little things that make it much more enjoyable.
I recently flew from LA to Cape Town on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines' Business Class and had a really great experience. The attention to detail and service made this flight stand out above the rest.

I'm always looking for ways to simplify my beauty routine on the road.
When I'm traveling, there are two things that are important to me: not having to reapply makeup or product when I'm out for the day, and not having to pack a ton of toiletries.
I use Olay Regenerist Whip in the morning as a lightweight moisturizer that eliminates shine throughout the day. It also takes the place of a makeup primer so I can travel with less -- win, win!

Cabin fever is an all-too-common side effect of being a freelancer. Working from home has its perks, but sometimes I lose focus and feel the need for a change of scenery.
When that happens, I love to find a cozy coffee shop to post up and knock out my to-do list. Thankfully Cape Town is full of great cafes to work at!
