Five Countries, 15 Days (Pandemic Travel)

 Recently my boyfriend and I went on a mini World Tour and traveled to Italy, Turkey, Greece, Egypt and France. We originally planned to take this trip in 2020, however due to the Pandemic a lot of International Countries closed its borders to US travelers. So this year, we crossed our fingers, did plenty of research and waited for restrictions to lift. This trip was not the easiest to plan, and required hours of research. WE looked at Embassy sites to make sure that US travelers were welcomed into these countries and found so much travel inspo on sites like Pinterest, Instagram and Youtube. We were faced with flight cancellations  - one of the airlines we booked even went out of business: Alitalia. 
In each country, we already had an idea of where we wanted to visit and knew exactly what we wanted to do, so with much of our information gathered from our 2020 pre-pandemic research, we decided now would be the best time to travel as restrictions started to lift. We confirmed a lot of our flights this year and a few flights were repurchased with the vouchers we were given when we booked the original trip in 2020. 
To share the beauty of each country, I decided to split them up in five separate post and create a travel guide with tips for you because it would be too much to share five countries in one post. We took so many photos and we also decided to document the trip and create a vlog which will be posted to either my youtube channel or the Marius and Nat youtube page ( I'll keep you updated on this). So I hope you're excited for what's to come, and I look forward to sharing this journey with you.

Perfectionist Paralysis

 Omg I haven’t written on this blog in a little over six months.  But I am happy to say that I am back. So much has happened (within the six months) that I’ve been gone, but to tell you the truth, I had to find my inspiration for this and my overall why. Another truthful moment, but I also had come to a point where I actually liked my blog and to be honest I didn’t. I didn’t like the layout and how it looked via mobile. To me it wasn’t easy and when it comes to sharing my life online, I wanted it to be less complicated as possible. I wanted my site to be easy and user friendly, I hated the way my header looked, it wasn’t authentically me, it didn’t resonate with me. I basically copied a format that I saw someone else do, but what works for the goose doesn’t always work for the gander - or however the saying goes. 

So in true Virgo fashion, I didn’t post anything to my site because it wasn’t perfect. It wasn’t me. Over the past six months I discovered that I have something called  “Perfectionist Paralysis” meaning that if it isn’t perfect, it won’t get done. I realized that the fear of presenting something that just wasn’t true to myself, had kept me from actually performing. 

So over the last few days, I researched, made thousands of keystrokes online, and purchased a few different templates from SKYANDSTARS.CO on Etsy.com before I actually found something close to what I was looking for. Also to be honest, this template isn’t perfect either but it’s close, and I don’t have another six months to waste. Not to mention Etsy suspended my account *rolls eyes*  so I had checkout using the guest feature.

On a more positive note, I like how my site looks now. Although it isn’t as perfect as I would like it to be, it’s better than what it was and it’s done. And maybe I’ll tweak some things in the future, but for now, I just wanted this project to be done because I felt stuck for six months. I even missed my one year blog-iversary So from here I hope you enjoy this content that I’m rolling out. I’m excited again for my blog and I hope that you will be too. 

If there’s something that I learned from this experience, it is that done is better than perfect, unless you’re a Virgo, than it may take 6 months or it will never get done lol.

 In all honesty, don’t get stuck on something for too long, figure out what works for you so that you can live your best authentic life.

The Path of Fulfillment

"If you do what you’ve always done you’ll get what you’ve always gotten." - Tony Robbins

Hi guys, in my quirky YouTube girl voice lol. We have officially made it to the final day of 2020 and I think it’s fair to breathe a huge DEEP BREATH and SIGH of relief as the year comes to an end.

Simply Gratitude

We’ve made it Thanksgiving 2020 and I couldn’t be more happier and grateful just to see another day this year. As energetically draining this year has been for everyone it’s important for us to keep going and to not sit and dwell on things that are beyond our control.

Pandemic Travel Edit Vol. #1 - Tulum


With the world pretty much on lockdown, and only a few countries accessible to Americans for leisure travel, my bf Marius and I decided to make our way to Mexico and visit the towns of Tulum and Riviera Maya. At the very beginning of the Pandemic when hotels started to close their doors to guests, we were supposed to travel to Europe. Unfortunately our plans changed. So we started researching places and countries to visit to not only celebrate my 30th birthday, but to also enjoy some time off the grid.  We split our trip between two towns and spent two nights in Tulum and two nights in Riviera Maya.
