World Cup Craziness

I LOVE the World Cup! I grew up playing and loving soccer. I got the soccer genes from my dad. ;) So when the World Cup comes up every 4 years, I get distracted, hence why I have been MIA! So with this said...

Do you watch the World Cup?
Who are you rooting for?
Who's your favorite player?
Have you been to a live World Cup game?
What are your thoughts on any of the games you've seen so far?
How are you liking (or not liking!) the Refs?
Follow me on Facebook where I post tons of my World Cup thoughts!

Finding Inspiration!

I'm sorry my fellow travel friends! It's been A WHILE since I've been around. I've been spending more time in California and since I've been here longer than expected, I haven't had much inspiration for travel and hit a snag.

----- For now, you can follow me on Instagram: loveatraveler for my favorite travel shots AND while I'm not traveling, you can follow me on my personal account: reeeeeeeems for inspiration on food and things to do in California! -----

What's going on in my life at the moment?

Weellllllllllll....I'm looking for a job. My original plan had me teaching English in either South America or Asia, but sometimes plans change! ;) All I'll say is so far I am happy and I think I have just met my travel match/partner.

He is a traveler and has been to places that I haven't been that we'll just have to go to AGAIN! Don't want to jump the gun yet and get to excited but that is the main reason why I'm still here.

Don't you worry though! I am still my happy travel lover self and I see plenty of destinations in my future!

Next Destination?

Not sure yet BUT I turn 30 in February 2015 and it has been my dream to go all over Africa at or before I turn the wonderful young age of 30! So we'll see if that will happen! But I may forsee other travel adventures before then. Maybe Lebanon in the summer time, perhaps? I'll let you all in when plans are set. :)

Keep your travel dreams alive my travel buds!

Throwing it back to the most +1'd posts!

Excuse my absence. Partially my fault. Half of it was because I was sick --either the cold or the flu, allergies, and chest pain! :/ I guess after going 10 months without being sick, it had to hit me hard, huh? ;) And the other half was because of my travel sickness and blank canvas. Had a hard time figuring out a topic, so I decided to take a step back, recollect my thoughts, and then come back feeling refreshed. I don't like to write when I don't know what to say! Has this happened to you?

So while I have been collecting my thoughts, I looked back on some of my old posts from Peace.Love. and Blueberries., I didn't realize how high some of these posts were +1'd! I was happy :) to see that! So I thought I'd put them up here to share with you all.

1) Shrimp and Nectarine Stir Fry +1'd 7,709 times!

It's that simple! I love fruit and seafood together. They marry beautifully. If you are a lover of the kitchen, get in there and sample this!

2) After traveling... +1'd 7,709 times!

Silly that this post was right after my Ecuador and Chile adventure. I made a butterfly cake for a friend and then I show you all my favorite restaurant in Southern California- North Los Angeles area - Carnival!

3) 3 Cities in Ecuador +1'd 5,038 times!

My favorite eats that I indulged in the lovely Ecuador.

4) Beautiful Landscape +1'd 306 times!

One of the many reasons why I loved Bolivia ----the landscape --the views! Just awe-inspiring.  Everything there is breathtaking. This is just one of my favorite shots in the mountains.

How I feel looking back on these posts? My writing style is a lot different now! :-p It's fun to look back and see how I used to write!!

Do you ever look back on your past posts and notice anything different between then and now? :)

Photo of the day - Egypt

Fruit stand in Alexandria, Egypt
Alexandria, Egypt is one important city in Egypt that you must have in your travel plans if you happen to travel to Egypt now or in the future. Just a 2 hour drive from Cairo and worth it. The city has a Mediterranean feel but that crazy night life that is just a little different than Cairo. But also known to have many historical sites here. A very important city to explore and get a feel of the past. During the day, Alexandria is just a normal everyday city but at night, the people are out and about, cars everywhere, and don't even attempt to try and cross the street!

I just loved how among everything moving around, there was this fruit stand just sitting still and calm. A true site to see and one that I appreciated. Egypt won me over. And it will win you over too.

Machu Picchu

As promised from Throwback Thursday (and part because I LOVE reminiscing on past adventures!), I thought I'd show some of my favorite pictures from my time in magnificent Machu Picchu. :)
I loved capturing the site during the different times of the day and showing how the sun hits differently over this incredible world wonder. From sitting down and taking it all in to wandering around and exploring the site to climbing up Machu Picchu mountain, this day I will never forget.

PS. What is the one world wonder/world site you have always wanted to see?
