4 Must-See Destinations You Need To Check Out

My top 4 favorite Youtube travel diaries and must-see travel destinations.


With the endless opportunities and various cultures the world has to offer, there is nothing more I want to do than to explore the many different walks of life. While I am always on the lookout for new places to add to my travel board on Pinterest, there is no better way to get travel inspiration than by watching some travel diaries on Youtube where adventure enthusiasts showcase their journey through a camera lens. With that being said, I have put together my top four favorite travel diaries that will inspire you to visit these must-see destinations.

1. Santorini, Greece - Tess Christine

Ever since the year 2008 when my grandma introduced me to the movie "Mamma Mia", I have wanted to visit the islands of Greece. I mean who wouldn't love the photogenic architecture and jaw-dropping views? One of my go-to Youtubers, Tess Christine, visited this past summer and uploaded a slow-motion aesthetically pleasing travel vlog. Whether it be the unbelievably stunning sunsets or the black sand beaches, Santorini, Greece is definitely somewhere I want to explore.

2. Portland, Oregon - Aspyn Ovard

Traveling the world doesn't necessarily mean traveling overseas. There are plenty of perfect destinations for any travel enthusiast right here in the United States. For instance, after watching Aspyn Ovard's Portland, Oregon travel diary, I fell in love with it. Ranging from the picture perfect color changing trees throughout the many hiking trails, to the many different biking trails and the one of a kind beaches, there is something to do in Portland, Oregon all year round.

3. Banff, Alberta - Brad & Hailey Devine

After watching Brad & Hailey Devine's travel guide of Banff, Alberta, I want to stop what I am doing and plan a trip to Canada as soon as possible. With the extremely beautiful mountain range, miles of trees, the various hiking trails and the incredible lake views, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

4. Bali, Indonesia - Aspyn Ovard

If the breathtaking rolling hills of Bali doesn't convince you to visit, then the delicious one of a kind food will. I never thought of visiting this incredible island off of Indonesia that is known for forested volcanic mountains, beaches and coral reefs, until I watched Aspyn Ovard's video that showcased the many wonders of Bali. It's the places like this that make you want to pack your bags and plan a trip discovering the never before seen destinations.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

The Summer To-Do List For The Girl Who Doesn't Want To Be Bored

And although these probably won't keep me busy in the same way I was at college, I know that at least I won't be bored.


It's been a day and a half since I moved out of my dorm at Rutgers (sweet ole Tinsley) and back to my room at home. Now, I think that it is safe to say that my schedule totally different. But, I've made it my goal to keep as busy and active as I was during both semesters. But, how exactly am I going to do that? I've got a couple of ideas in mind and here they are.

1. Getting my first-ish job

For the past couple of summers, my parents have been pushing me to get a job and make some money. However, as much as I've tried, I could never find a place that would hire me. One summer, I applied for a position at Barnes and Noble and that same day I was interviewed over the phone. By the end of that phone call, they decided that I did not have enough experience and time to be considered for the position. First of all, I could put in as much time as possible since it was supposed to be a seasonal job and second, how am I supposed to get experience if no one will hire me?! Honestly, the nerve of some people. This summer is a little different though since I've already applied and have been granted an interview with a store at my local mall. I'm very excited and considering the "hiring, help wanted" signs I've seen posted, I think I'm a shoo-in for the job.

Although, I guess you're wondering why I'm not exactly sure if this is my first job. Well, the reason for that is that I've recently been hired to work at the computer labs at Rutgers! Even though I haven't worked an official shift, orientation has come and gone and this summer I will be driving back up to Rutgers in order to complete my training. So, that's another way I'll be staying busy.

2. Spending time with my hometown friends

With all of the friends I've made headed back to their homes hours away from me, I'll be spending time with my family and the forever friends I made in high school. I'm excited to see five of my closest friends and all of the plans we have lined up for ourselves. Although we all have our own things going on, like summer classes and family trips, we've already made the promise to each other to spend as much time together as possible. From the beach to sushi dates, the possibilities for our summer together are endless. I cannot wait for all the memories we're going to make, especially if they're just as amazing, if not more than, the ones we already have.

3. Reading... and more reading

Growing up, I was an avid reader and could never be found without a book in hand. I lived for going to the library and bookstores, absolutely loving everything. But, as time went on and school got harder, my love for reading fell the tiniest bit short. It became something that I had to do for school rather than something I enjoyed. But, I've made it my goal to do just that, to actually enjoy reading and find my love for it again. Whether I finish one book or twelve, I want to know that I read for my own personal enjoyment and happiness and not for school. There are a couple of books that I've got my eye on and am looking forward to reading so I think I'll be good to go for this goal. But, if you have any suggestions let me know!

It doesn't seem like a lot, but I promise I also have some other bits and pieces planned. And although these probably won't keep me busy in the same way I was at Rutgers, I know that at least I won't be bored. I don't want to return to school and say that I wasted my summer, sitting on the couch or laying in my bed and watching Netflix.
