When a “didn’t see that coming” country/city gets added into anyone’s travel, a friend, most likely who you’ve met from your travels or a friend who is now living in said country/city is the culprit. Sweden, Canada, Manchester and the Canary Islands are prime examples of countries/cities that were added to my Girl Takes Mundo … Continue reading Tel Aviv Is Tel Aviv And The Rest Of Israel
1 year ago today, I hopped into a plane with a dream to travel (center picture in above collage). I had no expectations, didn’t know if this would even be for me but I gulped deeply as I stepped onto a plane into the unknown. 1 year later and I’ve had my fair share of … Continue reading Happy Travel-Versary Girl Takes Mundo
Have you heard of the Canary Islands? Do you know it’s part of Spain? Do you know that despite it being part of Spain, it’s actually in the continent of Africa?

Apparently adding days to those already desired destinations … Continue reading Namibia, I’ll Be Back!
As I deplaned in Cape Town after what felt like my favorite layover during this whole Girl Takes Mundo trip (London) I couldn’t help to take in the initial sights of Cape Town, the lush African Savanna grasslands where the great cats prey and where the African elephants were roaming wild while in the distant … Continue reading The Up’s & Down’s Of Cape Town
And She’s back at it! Call me a predictable traveling nomad but I’ve decided to extend my original 6 month Girl takes Mundo journey and explore the world more.
