Coronado Beach at Sunset One of the most beautiful places to watch a sunset in the world, this small island off downtown San Diego is a prime spot. Post up at the Hotel del Coronado and have a picnic as you watch the sky turn into a million colors. ​​SMLXL Hotel del Coronado ​​SMLXL Watching the sunset on Coronado Beach Bar Hopping in Gaslamp Quarter San Diego isn’t all beaches and hiking, there’s a great downtown area, with an even better nightlife! Interested in partying it up? The Gaslamp Quarter is perfect for a night full of memories you will probably forget 🙂 ​​SMLXL C with a friend at Vin De Syrah in Gaslamp Quarter Amplified Ale Works in Pacific Beach Not only is this a brewery full of some of the tastiest beers San Diego’s many breweries (they have a TON) has to offer, but the restaurant portion, Cali Kabob, also has food that is on POINT (I recommend the zucchini chips). You think thats great? They’ve got board games too to really round out your experience. And if you have a similar experience to the one I had, your waiter might even come back and play with you when they get off work! ​​SMLXL Zucchini chips at Amplified Ale Works Kayaking in La Jolla Cove A terrifying experience personally because I’m scared of the ocean, but for those of you that love the outdoors and a bit of an adrenaline rush, La Jolla Cove is a beautiful… View Post

At the end of o​nly my second day, I finally got what all the hype was about. Colorado is literally a playground for people of all ages, especially grown ups. After ​all the excitement in Vail and on Resolution Mountain, D & I headed back toward the Mile High City, with Chris and a friend in tow. ​​SMLXL C, Chris & D about to head back to Denver from Vail What’s the best thing to do after a long day of outdoor excursions, mud puddles and utter excitement? Indulging in literally the best buffalo wings I’ve ever had. Shoutout to Fire on the Mountain, for literally blowing my mind. If you don’t know this, I’m a bit of a wings connoisseur, and I live in New York, so the last place I expected to have the best ones of my life was in Denver, Colorado. But hands down, they were top notch. In case you didn’t notice, food is a big part of traveling, especially for us Wanderlisters. So after indulging and growing one pant size in wings, I of course had to wash it down with some of Denver’s best ice cream at Little Man Ice Cream. I got a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich that was to die for and let’s just say by the end of the night, I needed to SIT DOWN. ​​SMLXL Ice cream sandwich from Little Man Ice Cream The best part of Denver, other than the weather, the food and the people,… View Post

There’s nothing like visiting a new place, especially one that’s so different from everywhere else you’ve ever been. So when I set out to Colorado on July 13th, I was more than excited to finally discover what all the hype was about for myself. I’ve had several friends move there within the past year, and being a beach-loving, East coast gal, I couldn’t understand the appeal of living in a landlocked state. Immediately when I was picked up by my friend D at the airport, I could tell. Sure it was too overcast to really see the mountains clearly, but the change in the air, the vibes of the people, and just the overall way of life in Denver seemed to be beaming with positivity. ​​SMLXL C & her friend D at the first stop in Denver – Tacos Tequila Whiskey D picked me up from the airport and we drove back towards the city. She lives in the LoHi neighborhood right across the bridge from downtown. Our first stop? Happy hour and tacos, obviously. What’s another wonderful way to get to know a new place? Food! And Denver does not cease to disappoint! We had delicious margaritas and tacos (pork belly, fried chicken & carnitas to be exact) and some mouthwatering nachos that can easily enter my Top 10 best of all time! ​​SMLXL Best nachos ever at Tacos Tequila Whiskey I arrived in Denver in the evening, so after happy hour and dinner, it was time to go home and call it an… View Post

As we’ve said countless times, the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. So what’s the best way to get to know the hearts of those around the world, whom you visit when you go to a new place? Food. Since we’re in Germany this week on The Wanderlist, we put together a list of the most delectable dishes these Germans have to offer. Get ready to say danke schön because you’re going to love each and every one of them! Wurst Easily one of the most traditional dishes, it’s pretty much the German version of a hot dog. A German sausage is perfect for travelers, on the go, who need a hearty snack. Douse it in some delicious spicy mustard, and you will have a salty and delicious treat. ​​SMLXL Weiner Schnitzel Technically the national dish of their Austrian neighbors, Germans still consider this one of their most popular dishes. A thinly cut and then pan fried cut of veal. Typically served with some type of salad, whether it be lettuce, potato or cucumber, this delicious dish isn’t one to miss on your next trip to Deutschland. ​​SMLXL Apfelstrudel In case you don’t speak German, that’s apple strudel to you and its simply DELICIOUS. Perfect for all the sweet tooths out there, this delicate pastry is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. ​​SMLXL Eintopf Germany is beautiful all year long, but the winter months can get brutal at times. What’s the best way to warm yourself up during these long and cold… View Post

Champagne is not just a product in France, but a way of life! Unbeknownst to many people across the world, champagne is only from the specific region in France from which it is named after. Many people confuse it with just sparkling white wine in general, which the French claim is l’impossible! We decided to dive into life in this northern region just 100 miles east of the twinkling lights of Paris, and get a taste for all that Champagne has to offer! ​​SMLXL Founded in 1065, it’s a historic province that boasts both military and historical significance. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site just a short few days ago this July, it tops our list of places to visit when we make our next trip to France! Let’s start with the province itself… Located in the northeast of France, its biggest city lies in it’s former capital of Reims. A bustling metropolis, almost four times the size of the present capital, when visiting here, you must see the 13th century cathedral that stands so beautiful. Though it was severely damaged in World War I, it has since been restored and is a top tourist attraction when visiting this beautiful French city. ​​SMLXL Photo by Wikipedia User-Traveler100 Though it’s not necessarily a top tourist destination, due to it being so rural, Champagne does remain a top choice for French homeowners to invest in another property. Many Parisians and other French citizens choose this region for holiday homes, as a way to escape… View Post
