This place should be on your bucket list…

One of the things I love about being an expat is all of the travel opportunities I get! Living in a place like Dubai, there are so many places to explore which are only a short plane ride away. Back in November, I got the chance to visit Morocco with my school, and I’ve been wanting to share this blog post for a while. We spent a week traveling around the country, but we got the chance to visit a city that I had never heard of before.

The city of Chefchaouen is one of the most interesting places I’ve ever visited. For someone who enjoys photography, I was in heaven! It’s a city that is completely blue and white. Every street is white and painted a different shade of blue, the cobbled streets are charming, and there are so many nooks and crannies waiting to be discovered. We spent a day walking around this city taking photos and exploring small stores. Here are some of the photos I got of Chefchaouen, I hope they inspire you to put this place on your bucket list!

The most photo-worthy spots you must visit in Sydney

As you might already know from all the photos I’ve been posting, I visited Australia over winter break! I saw so many amazing sights: mountains, beaches, and architecture etc… In today’s post, I want to share my top photo locations from Sydney that I think you must go to if you’re visiting! Let me know if you have any more recommendations, and if you’ve been to any of these locations!

The Byron Bay cafe guide

This winter was my first visit to Byron Bay, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be my last! I loved spending each day waking up early, walking down to the beach, and eating so much delicious food at the local cafes. Before I got to visit Byron Bay, I had seen so many bloggers on Instagram visit this place and eat some great looking food. So by the time I actually visited Byron Bay, I had an extremely long list of all the places I wanted to try. As you know, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. So here are my top breakfast spots in Byron Bay! I hope you enjoy seeing photos of the food as much as I loved eating it!

Three Blue Ducks

This was the first breakfast place we visited and it did not disappoint. Three Blue Ducks is located in the middle of a farm, and its menu is packed full of fresh local produce. It’s a popular spot and gets busy quite quickly, so I’d recommend getting there early to avoid a wait.

Folk

I already wrote a whole blog post about this cafe because I loved it so much! The food, ambiance, and location were just a perfect blend, and quite different from most of the places I’ve visited. Their menu is also very unique, and worth the trip just to try one of their interesting dishes.

Bayleaf Cafe

One thing I loved about all the cafes I visited in Byron was that they each had their own take on the usual breakfast dishes. Sometimes it can get boring when you’re traveling as you end up eating variations of the same food every day for breakfast. But each spot I visited had something different and special going on for them. I don’t remember the exact name of what I got at Bayleaf Cafe, but it was a variety of roasted vegetables on a flatbread and it tasted sooo good.

These are my three top breakfast cafes in Byron Bay! Let me know if you’ve tried any of them, and which ones you recommend for next time I visit!

See you next week,

Byron Bay Cafes – my top pick

As some of you will know I spent the majority of my Winter Break in Australia! I traveled to Melbourne and Sydney, but Byron Bay was by far my favorite. I’m a sun lover and I dream of living by the ocean, but what made this place even more special was the AMAZING food and nature that surrounded this town. It’s something I don’t get to experience a lot, having lived in big cities my whole life, and it was a breath of fresh air. Being in Byron was like a step back from the life I’m used to, everyone seemed to laid back and the lifestyle was just so relaxing and fluid. One of my favorite days I spent in Byron Bay was at Folk.

dsc_0351dsc_0577

Folk is a cafe on a patch of land surrounded by nature, and it’s heaven on earth. It’s a caravan type building where you can order your food and take a seat in their quaint little garden. I’m not used to this kind of thing, so as a typical tourist, I found it intriguing. And let me tell you, it looks like a small side of the road cafe, but the food that comes out of there is soooo good. (just writing about it makes me crave it) The beautiful location adds to the tranquility of the cafe, and with good food in your mouth and the sun on your back you can’t help but feel like everything is perfect.

img_9809dsc_0396img_9788dsc_0550dsc_0287

I LOVE restaurants and cafes with lots of different juices, smoothies, and health lattes to try out, and Folk did not disappoint. I think I sipped on all my familys’ drinks, but as usual, I stuck to my signature matcha latte, which they had sprinkled dried rose petals over. I don’t know what I was expecting the food to be like, but it exceeded all of my expectations! The dishes are not like the boring regular breakfast dishes you would find in any other place. I had a bowl full of hummus, dips, avocado, poached eggs, and some rice filled with spices and it tasted insane. I liked how their food was different and exciting, but still tasted amazing (and it was presented so beautifully, an added bonus!)

I would highly recommend this breakfast spot for anyone in the area, and would even go as far as to call it the best breakfast place I ate at during my whole trip to Australia! (and I ate a lot of good food, so that’s saying something…) Let me know if you’ve ever been to Folk, and what your Byron Bay recommendations are (as I’m sure I’ll find my way back there soon)

See you next week,

Morocco through my camera lens

A couple of months ago I visited Morocco for a photography immersion experience. It was honestly one of the most amazing trips I’ve been on, and I’ve been waiting to share some of my photos with you guys! I learned a lot about photography while I was in Morocco, and I’m proud to share this ‘Morocco through my camera lens’ post with you guys. I hope you enjoy my photos, and that they can give you a little taste of what my experience was like!

Morocco is famous for its leather. We visited a tannery, it was kind of disgusting… but also eye opening

Morocco – some highlights – more to come…

I just spent one of the best weeks of my life traveling across Morocco with 10 other students in a rickety old bus, taking photos and capturing moments.

Two weeks ago at 2:00 am I was struggling to do my last minute packing, and I was stressing out because I didn’t know what to expect with from trip. I was traveling somewhere 8 hours away, with a small group of people, with no device except my camera. Something that was very out of my comfort zone.

But I shouldn’t have worried because it ended up being one of the best trips ever, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I traveled from Rabat, to Chefchaoeun, to Fes, and to Casablanca, and they were all beautiful.

This trip centered around photography, and I learned how to use my camera to its full potential, and I got some pretty cool photos! I spent a week capturing moments on my camera and immersing myself in the culture, and I’m excited to share my full experience with you guys!

I’m going to be writing about each city, my trip as a whole, and my photography tips in separate posts, but for now, enjoy these highlights of my trip to Morocco. I honestly had such an amazing time, and I think that can be seen through these photos. Consider this a teaser of what’s to come…

Enjoy!

3 breakfast spots to try in London

During summer I always go back to London for a few weeks, where my days are filled with exploring new quaint stores and restaurants. One of my favourite things to do during summer is to wake up early and go out for breakfast. In case you didn’t know, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, so I’m always down to try new places. London is home to some of my favourite breakfast spots in the world, and in this blog post, I’m going to share 3 that I think you should try.

Granger & Co

Granger & Co have a few locations around London, but I’ve only ever visited the Notting Hill one. It’s one of the most popular breakfast spots in Notting Hill, so be sure to get there early if you don’t want to wait in line! All of the items on their menu are so fresh, and they have a lot of imaginative options. My all-time favourite, is their ricotta hotcakes, I’m drooling just thinking about them right now.

Andina Bakery

My family and I discovered Andina this summer, and we fell in love. Andina is also located in Notting Hill (although they do have other locations). It’s filled with the smell of freshly baked bread, and they display all of their baked goods on the counter, they look so inviting, you can’t help but try one. What I like about Andina is that their food is different from your regular breakfast options; they have a Peruvian inspired menu, and some of my favourite options are their corn cake and their artichoke and swiss chard pie, they’re so good! Whatever you order off the menu at Andina, you can see it being baked right in front of your eyes.

Farm Girl Cafe

Farm Girl Cafe is one of my go-to breakfast spots. Their light and fresh breakfast menu is perfect for the summer, but their wide array of lattes, such as the matcha latte, rose latte, charcoal latte etc… are the perfect fix for a cold autumn day. I’m slowly making my way through their drinks menu (my goal is to one day try them all!) and I would strongly recommend the charcoal and matcha lattes! I’ve visited their cafes in Notting Hill and on Carnaby street and I love them both. Be sure to try one of their smoothie bowls, or their avocado toast topped with strawberries!

Those are three of my favourite breakfast cafes in London! Be sure to let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any of these, and what your recommendations are!
