Our girls getaway to Mexico had some hilarious moments and was a really well-rounded trip – we got to relax, take in Puerto Vallarta’s colorful sights, and experience its lively nightlife scene. This marked my third friends/girls trip of the year, and boy did it get off to a rocky start though. Firstly, I need to stop picking these redeye and 5:30am flights just because I think I’m saving money. I actually ended up paying $42 to take a Lyft to the airport, which I think brought me pretty close to how much a better timed flight would’ve been. Learn from my mistakes!
Here is part 2 of my Craziest Travel Stories series, in which fellow female travel bloggers share their wildest situations and experiences while adventuring abroad. These four stories involve a series of unfortunate events from Asia to Europe and follow our bloggers as they get stuck in sticky situations in more ways than one! Enjoy!
If you’ve ever traveled abroad, chances are you’ve found yourself in some pretty uncomfortable or hilarious situations. If you haven’t – consider yourself lucky! However, one thing is for sure – they always end up making some pretty great stories. I’ve personally been lost on the rugged streets of small-town Costa Rica, almost stranded at a gas station in Bali when we thought our motorbike broke down, and have run into a Scottish friend in Barcelona who I hadn’t seen in 7 years since we first met in Costa Rica. There was also that time I was stranded in the cow country and drove through the night with 3 complete strangers. Travel will test you and help create some of the most memorable experiences. Because of this, I have asked fellow travel bloggers to share their craziest travel stories. From a full frontal massage along the Silk Road to getting completely lost in the Balkans, each of these stories are highly entertaining.
Earlier this month, one of my oldest friends and I jetted off to Orlando, Florida to explore the wonders of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. However, what we found was that the region has so much more to offer than just great theme parks and expensive souvenirs. In addition to some much needed pool lounging time, we fell in love with some local restaurants and indulged in a fun history lesson by traversing some of Central Florida’s lakes and canals. We particularly enjoyed our time in Winter Park, which is a town right next to the theme park capital. If you’re planning a getaway to the area, here are the ins and outs of our trip and our 6 day Orlando, Florida itinerary.
