HA! Finally found one of these instagramable maple leaves!!!  Oh and another epic bird’s eye view of a city! Yes I’m on the edge of a wall, no you shouldn’t copy me...unless you are a professional ledge-climber like me. 
.
Speaking of professional, I feel compelled to give my brief two cents on a topic about a recent article about a “scam” that everyone keeps sending me and voicing their concerns about trusting bloggers/influencers...
.
All I will say is that many of us professional blogger/influencers have been doing this for years (over 6 for me!), we helped invent the concept of “Influencer marketing”, we self-funded our dreams, and we grew authentic audiences that we could teach others how to do because we are too used to the grind it takes to do it. We’re not in it solely for the money or the luxury (not that I do luxury) and will be more than happy to explain how hard and non-glamorous it can be (hence my behind the scenes account).
.

So for someone who has only been in the game for a year or so (I remember when she’d ask me for business advice...) yet “magically” grown exponentially, to offer a course on the business behind all this, then not deliver, causing people to lose money and articles to go around giving the rest of us a bad name, is just a shame.
.

But please don’t let that let you lose trust for the authentic, real, hardworking people who devote their lives to inspiring you to travel!
.
It IS possible to do this, and more importantly, possible for anyone to travel (depending on your passport, ), but both take a lot of extra hard work!
.
Anyway....how cute is Bratislava tho?!?!

Bratislava, Slovakia
I wear gowns for special occasions...like arriving in new countries, summiting massive mountains, landing on 7th continents, annndd pretty much any other time you wouldn’t expect someone to be wearing one ‍️
.
To be completely honest, I’ve always loved wearing gowns, but I also love adventure, so I don’t wear them so much to make photos just look “pretty”, I do it to show that a badass, adventurous, independent woman, can also be feminine and elegant; there doesn’t need to be a rugged stereotype and vice versa.
.
Anyway! Welcome to Bratislava, Slovakia, my 91st country and a gorgeous little city that makes you feel like you’re in a fairy tale! Most people are dressed to the nines here at all times for events, ballets, or other performances, so I decided to as well...even though it was 30 degrees F outside! ️
.
I actually made a behind the scenes video on my other account for the first time in a while about trying to get this shot! Check it out on @alyssaramostravels ! .
Anyone else been to Slovakia or to Berlin where I’m going next??
.
 by me with my Sony ar7iii and tripod bc I gave up on trying to teach my mom framing.

@mmoonstar You JUST echoed my thoughts lady. High five to you from a fellow badass but feminine woman who loves wearing her maxi dresses anywhere anytime . Keep doing it ❤️❤️ @mylifesatravelmovie

@pilotmaria You look stunning!

I’m dreaming of a white...red, and leopard, Christmaaaasssss ️
.
In addition to seeing as many Xmas markets as possible, we’re now adding in rooftops and bell towers as well 
.
As always, I am practicing safe travel techniques, especially around big events like these, and even more so following the tragic news of the attack in France yesterday. Thank you everyone who checked in on me, and condolences to everyone affected ️
.
Remember that danger can be anywhere, it shouldn’t scare you away from traveling, but you should always act like you’re in ninja stealth mode. Tips on that will be on my Stories!

@mmoonstar Picture perfect 😍

Welcome to my (Christmas Market) heaven!!! If you want to see a ton of markets in a short amount of time/space, definitely go to Vienna! 
.
Pretty sure my mom and I made it to 6 markets here, and as you can see on my Stories, we drank wayyyy too much Ghulwein (hot red wine) bc she insisted we collect the mugs from each of them...you know...for my nonexistent apartment...
.
This also led to me buying that feather bird ornament in my hand for my nonexistent Xmas tree, so I’m fully intending on wearing it as a hair piece for NYE. ‍️
.
Oh! Let’s play another fun game for a shout-out if you’re interested! Who can guess what my dream Xmas tree would look like?? 
.
Also, I have another tip! If you’re looking for authentic local stuff, be sure to ask where things are made! The majority of stuff was not from Austria (a lot from India!) so not sure if it counts? Thoughts?
.
 @mylifesatravelmom after the millionth try but don’t look at her page bc she made fun of me on her last post.

@theplanetd Perfect for the holiday season

Old Town, “New” Town, and me freezing my ass off, all in one photo. ️
.
Did you know that most of the Old Town in Warsaw had to be rebuilt after WWII (which my Grampa was a POW in) and now the entire area is a UNESCO site? .

I highly encourage all of you travelers to do some sort of tour (or research blogs like mine ) any time you get to a new destination!
.
Anyone else take time to learn the history of the places they travel to? .

You’re probably wondering why there’s no one else at the biggest Christmas Market in Warsaw...we were too, but turns out the tree lighting was the next day, so just got this epic whimsical shot of the 4pm “sunset” before all the lights went on! 🤩
.
Swipe left to see just how big that tree’s balls are () and what the tree looks like lit up the next day! .

I’m off to Vienna, so any epic viewpoint or food/wine tips are mucho appreciated!
.
Btw my tips so far for Christmas markets:
1. Check online the dates they start and finish and what time
2. Keep in mind how early it gets dark (usually 3:30-4pm)
3. Be sure to have local currency cash
4. Be sure to drink all the hot mulled wine
5. Layer layer layer
6. Bring one sturdy reusable bag for whatever you buy
7. Make sure to practice your night photography and stand really really still for photos...unlike I did in this shot. .

Europe Christmas Markets bucketlist trip starts now!! My mom and I have never had a White Christmas...or even a cold Christmas for that matter, since our Cuban culitos were born and raised in South Florida, so this year I decided to take her on the ultimate holiday trip!!! ️🤪
.
We’re hitting 4 countries with some of the best Christmas Markets in 12 days (shout out to my 63 yr old mom @mylifesatravelmom for being totally down for that much aggressive traveling), 2 of which I chose bc they’re new countries for me, making them my 90th and 91st countries!  .

First stop is here in Warsaw, Poland...where we’ve already eaten way too many pirogies (English spelling) and mulled wine, next is Vienna, Bratislava, and Berlin! Wish I could add more but gotta make it “home” in time for actual Xmas!
.
Speaking of which...I don’t have an official religion that I associate with. I learn about and respect all of them, and have spent a great amount of time traveling to many countries to understand them. My official religion is World Peace, and I celebrate every day as my holiday!
.
But for my fellow Cubans....you know I have to make it home for Noche Buena every year (we have big parties Xmas eve instead of on Xmas) ...even though I always make a big drama-fest about the poor pig being roasted! 
.
Who here has seen some epic holiday markets or has an awesome way of celebrating the holidays?!

@crystalhefner Makes me want to take some trips with my mom! 🙏✨💕

What. A. NIGHT!!! The first ever Oscar’s of Travel, AKA the #TPGAwards was a smashing success, not just for the fabulous time we had, but the incredible amount of money raised and donated to charities like @gboweepeacefoundation_africa thanks to @briankelly @thepointsguy ! 
.
It was also fun getting glammed up for the red carpet (haven’t done that in years, and fun fact: that’s where the name of my blog came from!), and seeing so many of my favorite fellow bloggers/influencers all in one place!
.
Swipe to see some of the highlights (mostly my dress lol) including the moment when I announced on stage I was going to stand backwards bc “my dress looked better that way”. 
.
Dress: Custom fit and ordered from India
.
Hair: Half drybar half me
.
Makeup: Me

#MondayMotivation :: Everyone has to start small to get somewhere. It’s how determined you are to work hard to soar to the top that will get you there. Fly my little eagles and pterodactyls! 🦅

Beyond excited to be back in NYC, this time for the Oscar’s of Travel, AKA the inaugural #TPGAwards! Tomorrow The Who’s-Who of professional travel bloggers, influencers, and industry leaders will gather together...and I get to present an award!!
.
It means so much to me and I’m so honored to be attending and presenting, because about 5 years ago, I first met @briankelly (@thepointsguy) when I randomly tweeted a selfie with his dog Miles @thepointspups from the first class (lucky upgrade after a canceled flight) of a plane, and someone saw it, retweeted it, leading him to turn around and see who was taking selfies with his dog.  IT WAS MEEEEE!!
.
Back then I had literally JUST started my blog, and today it’s how I make a full time income. It was people like Brian who made me know for a fact it was possible to do that, and I’d highly suggest you read about his story for inspiration!
.
Now, on another important note...anyone who can guess what my gown looks like below I’ll personally shout out from the awards show tomorrow!

It’s December so holiday-photos are officially now Ok to post, and you may be seeing A LOT from me! 🤪️

Starting with the kind I’m used to...ones with palm trees, like this one on Worth Avenue on Palm Beach Island!
.
Fun fact: there’s two stores on this street that have bars in them! One is the new @lillypulitzer which you probably saw me playing in on my Stories!

What type of weather are you used to for the holidays?

@briankelly Don’t get too comfy- can’t wait to see you at the #tpgawards !!!

@christinapascucci @mylifesatravelmovie ahhh I leave FRIDAY for Buenos Aires/Mendoza for some 💃🏽 🍷 🧗‍♀️ and then head to Ushuaia to start our expedition with @aktravel_usa @abercrombiekent and I’m FREAKING OUT!!!!! 🙆🏽‍♀️🙆🏽‍♀️🙆🏽‍♀️

Mirror mirror on the pool, tell me all the juicy secrets you’ve seen here too! ️‍️
.
Could you imagine if the walls could talk in a 1920’s-built hotel where celebrities and politicians frequented partially because of the amount of hidden entrances and exits there are?? 🤭 (And also because it’s beautiful!)
.
I actually have the inside scoop on one historical scandal that happened on Palm Beach Island...I actually met one of JFK’s mistresses here...he moved her to the island (where he also had a house) from Sweden, and she wrote a book about it which is how I know I can’t get in trouble for saying that  I’ll keep what she told me in person to myself tho 🤫
.
Anyone else love learning about secrets and scandals of the past? Or am I just a weird wannabe detective?

@gettingstamped Super cute swimsuit

Kept seeing pictures of people holding a fall maple leaf over one eye so I wanted to make my own version except, OH WAIT! There’s no fall in Palm Beach, Florida! Or winter. And I’m not complaining at all. ️‍️
.
An endless summer is what makes Palm Beach Island so appealing for winter travels, but there’s so much fascinating history here that also makes it a timeless classic! .
In fact, Palm Beach Island is said to be the first vacation destination in the country especially for celebrities and presidents, and is also home to many as well! AKA, the island holds tons of secrets and scandals...️‍️
.
Be sure to check mine and Oscar’s Stories as we take you around the island and try to get into as much trouble as the Kennedy’s probably did! 
.
Also, how do you like my interpretation of a “fall leaf”? ...or the fact that Oscar is laughing at me...or the fact that I’m hiding my phone behind the leaf so I can also take my own photo from my camera on a tripod?
