I am a girl’s girl when it comes to planning a vacation. Most of the time, nothing sounds better than laying out at the beach, access to a pool, spa days, great food and time to truly unwind and relax. However, deciding my favorite trip is hard because I love all kinds of travel and every destination brings a new perspective. Outside of travel that promotes “relaxation”, the most eye-opening travel is seeing how others live their lives. As an example, I would say Prague was one of my favorite and most memorable trips. When I visit cities like Prague, I set one day to visit museums and other areas that teach us history of that destination. This one day is when I am a true tourist, but outside of that I make every effort to live like a local. I love researching cafes, restaurants and bars on Instagram so I can find the best places to go. As someone who loves fashion, I plan accordingly with my wardrobe because I enjoy walking everywhere and taking public transportation. This means, flats over heels which is hard to accept as a New Yorker. One day in Prague, I walked around and came across a local farmers market one afternoon. Afterwards, I kept walking and stubbled on a little winery overseeing the city. Both experiences made the day perfect and would have never happened if I didn’t have the “live like a local” mentality. Those who know me won’t be surprised but I am never one to create an itinerary when I travel. I don’t like to be constricted to a plan each day and prefer to find places to see and things to do as they come. The sense of adventure and freedom in a new country is what makes the trip so special.
