Have you ever felt so drawn or connected to something, but you don’t know why? That’s me with Spain. As of writing this post, I have not yet been to Spain, or Europe. But anyone who knows me knows that I have had a love affair with Spain from afar for years. I don’t know what it is about the country. I’ve always loved the Spanish language and Europe has always been a continent I wanted to visit. So I guess Spain has the best of both worlds for me. I have joked that if reincarnation exists, I was Spaniard in a past life.
Until I get over to that side of the world (which will hopefully be soon, fingers crossed and positive vibes sent out into the universe) I spend my time scrolling through Pinterest at the beautiful places I want to visit. Do you love Spain too and need recommendations on where to go? Keep reading. Also, please keep in mind since I have not been to Spain yet these photos are not mine and were all found via Google Images! Included in this post are videos highlighting each city mentioned.
Travel is clearly a huge passion of mine, as you can guess from my most recent blog posts. However, we are all complex humans with a variety of interests. So due to this and to add more variety to my blog, I am going to share with you my favorite true crime/mystery podcasts and Youtubers. So if you’d like a list to come to when you’re getting ready for school or work (or on the plane/airport), keep reading.
Through my research I learned about several different apps, but the two most popular were HelloTalk and Tandem. As expected, they both have the same premise: connect with native speakers and have conversations. Both apps are free to use but offer extra features if you upgrade your membesrship or pay for the service. Sounds pretty simple. But I have found that there are several differences between these apps and I definitely prefer one over the other. If you’d like to know which one, as well as the pros/cons of each, keep reading.
With social media being so big, we often see our favorite influencers jetsetting across the globe and more and more, we see Youtubers who backpack for months on end to various destinations around the globe. However, if you’re like me and 1) do not get paid to travel (at least not yet, dream big guys) or 2) don’t have endless amounts of cash (currently living on the oh-so common “student budget”), then I have a few tips for you to help you save money for traveling, or anything else for that matter. We shouldn’t let being a student, having student loans or not making a 6 figure salary stop you from traveling. Let’s go on this money saving journey together on our mission to see the world.
There are so many travel Youtubers out there now. Some may say that the market is oversaturated. And I kind of agree. But what I find is last common is what I consider to be TRUE travel Youtubers. You see many videos of “influencers” and content creators who just say at these expensive resorts where they have product shots seeminly every other frame. Sure, staying at the beach or pool may be cool. But that’s not the type of travel that inspires me. I like seeing Youtubers on foot, trekking through the city, getting lost in the streets and finding hidden gems. I think some of the bigger/more popular Youtubers do more vacationing and less traveling.
Hey, if that’s what you want, then go for it! I know my sister for example would hate walking around a city for hours. But for me, and I am sure a lot of you too, when you travel you want to experience the local culture. You want to see the beautiful (and not so beautiful) parts of a country. Why travel if you’re going to be surrounded by things/people you could meet at home? So I’m here to introduce you to five Youtubers you should be subscribed to.
