Big 26 in London!

Since moving to Korea I have made a pact to myself to do something big for my birthday. My 25th I spent in Thailand and for my 26th Bday, I was able to spend it in London. I absolutely loved everything about it but most importantly I went for one reason. I am a hugeeeeee Harry Potter Fan. Like a HUGEEEE fan. My close friend was able to meet me there and we had the time of our lives! Here are a few pics to sum up our trip.

Just a few of my favorites: the food, the scenery, the big red buses, the red telephone booths, the people, and the Partying!

This isn’t even half the pics that were taken but all my favorite spots in London! I will definitely have to go back soon! 🙂

#HAPPY TRAVELING!

Thank“FULL” in the Bahamas! Thanksgiving Getaway.

You ever feel like you need to get away? So overwhelmed with life that you would go anywhere? That’s exactly how I have been feeling for the past couple of months. I just needed to get away from the stress, the negativity, the feeling of needing to do and be better. I have wanted to see the swimming Pigs and what other way to spend a vacation then getting on a flight 2.5 hrs away and checking it off your bucket list.

I had no itinerary when I booked this trip or landed. All I knew was that I wanted to get away and see the piggies. When I got to the airport everyone was sooo friendly. I booked my entire stay at the airport with the lady at the information desk for an amazing price. I was able to stay at a hotel downtown Nassau and enjoy all the amazing beaches and restaurants.

I then did the all day trip with 4C’s Exuma Excursions that was recommended by a friend which I highly recommend to you. They were absolutely amazing with their customer service and they took it upon themselves to be my personal photographers. Check out the pics of my trip below!

Recommendations: I did the speed boat trip to Exuma and back from Nassau and it was more time on the boat (9 hours to be exact). If you get sea sick I recommend flying to Exuma then using the company!

Fish Fry is a must visiting Nassau. The food there was absolutely AMAZING! You can definitely feed two with one plate it’s Soo much food and worth every penny. (Try the Snapper fish…I fell in love)

The holiday Inn Express Was literally right downtown Nassau and in walking distance of everything. The perfect place to stay with great prices for 3 Days.

I literally enjoyed every moment of this trip and the pics don’t even justify the views so make sure you visit it for yourself! 💫

HAPPY TRAVELS!

California Wine Tasting: Half Moon Bay 

If you know me, you know that I absolutely love a relaxing day of drinking wine and reading a good book. So when my friends and I were headed to the beach in Sunny San Francisco, California, we saw a sign that read, “NEBBIA WINE TASTING”. I immediately requested we stopped at the sign that said Wine tasting. I am soo glad we did because the location was ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I have always wanted to attend a wine tasting in California so glad I was able to check it off my bucket list. 

Once we got out of the car, I immediately fell in love, it was a small wine tasting garden but it had great views. The signs of the building were really nice and I instantly thought to take a picture. 


When entering the building, it was $10 for 5 tastings including the wine glass. The Host was really nice and she explained every wine in depth. She was extremely friendly. There was also this amazing vinegar mustard dip that was made at the garden that was PHENOMENAL. I don’t even like vinegar but this time I made sure to not miss a bit. 



Behind the wine tasting building was a beautiful garden you can go and walk around and enjoy the view. The flowers were gorgeous, it was super relaxing, and the girls and I absolutely loved it. We stayed here for about 2 hours soaking up the sun. 


Wine: so In regards to the wine. We found 3 wines that we were in love with and for our last 2 we doubled up on the ones we liked the most. We all wanted sweet wine so the host gave us her most sweetest ones. 


Black Muscat- red #1

Orange Muscat- orange #3

California Sparkling Wine- white #2

All 3 are dessert wines and were very good! We ended up combining the black muscat and the California to make an Amazing mix. 


California has never failed me yet with a new wine that I have to go back and try again!

4 Reasons You Should Visit Fiesta! 

                  VIVAAAA LA FIESTA

ARRIBA! ARRIBA! ARRIBA! That is the phrase I took away last night after attending one of San Antonio’s famous traditions. It is when the city comes together and celebrate for 10 days straight. This year it fell on April 20-30th! 

The streets of the riverwalk were completely filled with people in their colorful accessories representing the traditions of Fiesta. My friend and I started on Main Street and that’s where we got our directions to start from central market and work down from there.

FOOD. Being from California, I Liveeeeee for some Corn in a cup, Carne Asada tacos, or a Juicy Gordita. Living on the east coast and overseas, aunthentic Mexican food is definitely hard to find. Welp, thanks to Fiesta, I was able to get some AMAZINGGGG authentic Mexican food, candy, and drinks! 

LIVE MUSIC. There was soo much Live Music from performers on stage, DJ’s playing music on the sides, or just random people on the corner with their boom boxes. It ranged from Country to hip hop to Spanish. There was so much music 🎶 that it was fit for any age and crowd. 

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. If you’re into Margaritas, beer, wine slushes, or more beer, then you would definitely enjoy Fiesta. The Beer is a little pricey ranging from $3-$6 but when you’re having a good time, who’s really counting! 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ the margaritas were premade so in reality it was juice but the wine slushes were AMAZING! Totally worth trying. 

DANCING. Now for the best part. I did not expect to be out all night on a Thursday knowing I had to work the next day but it was totally worth it. My friend and I walked down to central Market following the directions we received and we stayed down there the entire time. There was so much food, beverages, and music. Plus the decorations were beautiful. We ended up walking to where we found the DJ and the younger College students. It was suchhhh a good time. The party was outside but it did get extremely hot to the point of sweat rolling down! 😩😩 (AGAIN, totally Worth it). We danced all night to Literally every type of music. The DJ was awesome and the people were definitely lively. Not to mention the Spurs won that night! 

Seriously, if you are ever in the San Antonio area during the month of April, you must put on your list to attend some Fiesta activities. Promise you won’t be disappointed! ❤️

First Time Skiing in Daegu, South Korea! 

So for the past two months I have been dying to go Skiing here in Korea. I have heard that some of the best resorts are in South Korea and with me being here only for a year, I wanted to make sure that I took the opportunity to see it for myself. Not to mention you can buy ANYTHING in Korea and I bought a ski/snowboarding outfit that I have been dying to wear! Lol. 

So with that being said, on Saturday I rented a car, grabbed a couple of my friends, and we were on our way to ski. Mind you, I have been snowboarding but never Skiing. I live in Daegu so I really wanted to find somewhere that was close by. Luckily for us, we were able to find Eden Valley Ski Resort that was only an hour and 15 minutes away! SCOREEEE!!!!! 


It was soo beautiful pulling up to the Resort. Now I must say, it was super dangerous and scary going down those roads to get to the resort. Totally worth it, but totally scary to drive. However, the views were to DIE FOR! 


Once we arrived, it was such a beautiful day outside. The sun was shining and we just knew that there would be no snow. Joke on us! We immediately realized that there was snow but not only was there snow, but the slopes at the resort were insane. There were two ski lifts but the way that downward slope was set up and none of us ever skied before, it wasn’t happening! 


What was nice was we payed 50,000 won for the entrance fee, ski equipment to include pants, jacket, shoes, and skis, and the ski lift. Really great price for 4 hours of Skiing. So to continue, after we were ready to get our Ski on, we decided to go to the baby slope. Here is where it gets real, it was the smallest slope but the steepest to us! No really, I was scared out of my mind!  


What shocked me was the fact that Koreans start their children at a super early age. I mean there were literally kids  at age 3 that were on the slopes and were killing it. At first I was like I clearly need to do better these little kids are not beating me, but then I realized that this is my first time and I have a lot more to break than this 3 year old who can fall down and get back up without feeling any pain in the morning. 


Morale of the story, 

We had a few falls, might have ran into the fence a couple of times (more so me) but other than that, we got the hang of it and it turned out to be extremely fun! Definitely glad I got the opportunity to visit this resort and more importantly to check Skiing off of my Korean bucket list.
