Happy Monday, everyone! This building is colorful and vibrant just like my life.❤️☺️
Every time I travel, I like to do a google search on “most Instagramable spots.” And, this marvelous building popped up on my DC search.👍🏽
It definitely does not disappoint!❤️💋 #bostonblogger#travelinstyle#mydccool
How beautiful and unique are these tree roots?
The largest of these water gardens was used in the movie "Logans Run"
This smaller pool surrounded by massive trees and twisted hallways was inspired by the scene in alice in wonderland where she shrank and grew in size depending on what she ate or drank. While looking down at the gardens you feel like a giant, and as you walk down the uneven staircase you feel as though you are shrinking. It was a very cool thing to experience 💙

"This land, although not my native land,
Will be remembered forever.
And the sea's lightly iced,
The sand on the bottom is whiter than chalk,
The air is heady, like wine,
And the rosy body of the pines
Is naked in the sunset hour.
And the sunset itself on such waves of ether
That I just can't comprehend
Whether it is the end of the day, the end of the world,
Or the mystery of mysteries in me again."
- Anna Akhmatova

This is Sue, the largest, most extensive and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex specimen ever found, at over 90% recovered by bulk.
It was discovered in August 1990, by Sue Hendrickson, an explorer and fossil collector, and was named after her. .
it now resides in the Field Musuem of Natural History in Chicago.
This is Sue's actual skull, the one on display with her body being a recreation. Imagine living next to these beasts, my entire body could fit inside of her head. 😮

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
Can you name this super famous poem? It was my favorite when I was young 💙 .

Sometimes you find yourself standing on on a modern path overlaying an ancient one.
This is called Jarlabank bridge, a 150-meter long Viking bridge, built by the powerful lord Jarlabanki. Each large stone you see is a runestone, written in Old Norse and dated to the 11th century. .
The energy here felt so powerful. I honestly fell so deeply in love with Scandinavia that I have hopes of living there one day 💙
Fun fact: I recently did my 23 and me and found out my genetics are a mix of German, Scandinavian, and "generally north western European", I had believed I was German and Italian my whole life 😮. During our Scandinavian adventure I was mistaken for a local more than once, it makes a lot more sense now 🤣❤
Mexico truly has some of the most beautiful color of turquoise water 💙
Where is you favorite place to witness the beauty that is our ocean?

How do you make public transportation more tolerable? Make it a large underground art installation of course! 🤷♀️
This is the Stockholm Metro Station. Each station has a completely different theme and each one is completely and utterly breathtaking. .
This station was called ⛅Solna Strand⛅
It symbolizes yin and yang, with these massive cubes filled with light blue skies on a sunny day encased within the darkness of the cave surrounding it.
Where is the most unexpected place you've found art?
This town was the most colorful little town with the absolute best food in our entire Swedish trip (and that's saying a lot 😋) And this particularly colorful street is called Stora Gatan, it's said to be Sweden’s oldest main street dating back to the time of 10th-century King Erik the Victorious. Its amazing to stand in a place that has been there for so long. To think about how many different generations walked the same path as we did on this day. ❤

The road less traveled. ✌
So my sister informed me she would like to try hiking (which I am always down for 😜), and we picked a location and were on our way. We had to drive to the trails up these steep mountain roads with huge drop offs. The further we climbed, the more nervous she got, until she just completely closed her eyes for most of the trip. It was just then that she informed me she had a debilitating fear of heights 😩 She wanted to do this to conquer her own fear, which is incredibly admirable but made me feel pretty awful to be the one dragging her up a mountain with me. So once we parked I asked if she was sure she wanted to climb the trail we picked. It has a huge overlook with a view but that is probably the worst option for someone afraid of heights. She said yes and pushed through (albeit very nervously 😬) Once she got to the top she kept getting closer to the edge of the overlook and just wanted to sit there. It was so awesome so see her go from being petrified to amazed by how beautiful these mountains are. In the car ride home she saw an overlook stop on the road that first made her close her eyes to cross over. She asked of we could stop and when I did she ran out to edge of the overlook so see this view. 💙 Its amazing how one good hike, or one amazing view can conquer your fears and turn you into an views addict 🤩
What is a view so beautiful it would make you conquer you fears?

Is there a more iconic site in all of Ireland?
I don't think it would be possible for any capture to truly do the landscape here (or in all of Ireland for that matter) justice. My husband joked that the entire emerald isle looks as though it was perfectly landscaped at all times. Everything was so green and lush. (I guess that's why they call it the emerald, huh? 😜) Do you have a favorite landscape, pub or historical site in Ireland? Drop it below 👇 and let's discuss 💚

The blue ridge mountains in North Carolina 💙
More beautiful in person but not as scary as the photo looks to climb (unless of course you have a fear of heights 😬).

The peninsula of Dingle was the most beautiful and otherworldly place we've been lucky enough to see. Its hard not to fall in love with such a beautiful country. If you are up for a true adventure don't hesitate to rent a car and drive across the entire country. There are so many stop offs and historical sites you won't want to miss a single one of them. (Plus most of Game of Thrones was mostly filmed in Ireland 😜) 💚 #dingle#ireland#emeraldisle

! Kungsträdgården metro station !
The station is notable for its unique flora and fauna. It's the only place in Scandinavia where you can find the Lessertia dentichelis spider. The cave-dwelling spider has lived on the station's walls ever since it opened for service in the mid-1970s, but scientists don't know exactly how it got there. Presumably, it traveled on machines and excavation equipment from Southern Europe that was used during the construction. There is also a moss growing on the walls that was previously thought to be extinct in the Stockholm region.
And also, it looks like this 😍
