ABOUT TEONA

Welcome to my world of wanderlust. My name is Teona and this is my blog. This is a place for all my creative thoughts that I carry on daily.
This is my blog world, created in 2016, with the purpose to create a place where I can express myself through my photos and words.
My blog is the reflection of all my interests, passions and loves, but also my personality.

TRAVEL, USA

There are so many things to see and do in NYC. Something that you should not miss is visiting some of its world famous museums. My advice to everyone that visits NYC is to at least make time to visit one museum.

One of my favorite activities to do in NYC on a weekday is to go to a Museum, in this past year I’ve been to almost all museums in NYC area (missing a few more that I am planning to visit in the next few months).

TRAVEL, USA

Going to New England during the fall foliage season had been on my bucket list for so long. And for those of you wondering yes, fall foliage is an actual thing (and word) and a lot of people specifically travel to New England in October to see the leaves change and the colorful sceneries.

We organized a road trip from NYC all the way up to Vermont and back…

TRAVEL, USA

Chicago had been on my list of places I want to visit in 2022. When I booked the flights for a weekend in Chicago I was really excited.  Chicago is known for its horrible winter weather, so a weekend in late September/early October seemed like the perfect timing to visit Chicago.

BEAUTY

It’s been too long since I’ve shared beauty related content on my blog. I tend to share more skincare/beauty content on my instagram. But I do love from time to time to dive in-depth and talk about products I use and why I love them. You probably know about my skincare obsession..it started back when I was at university in London and it hasn’t stopped.

TRAVEL, USA

This 52 acre botanical heaven is located in the heart of Brooklyn near Prospect park and the Brooklyn Museum. The Brooklyn Botanic garden is home to more than 14,000 taxa of plants. The gardens opened in 1911 and were under the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences together with the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Children Museum and Brooklyn Institute of Music. When the garden opened it was only the Native Flora Garden (which still exists today). However, in 1912 Harold Caparn was appointed as the landscape archited, Caparn in the next 30 years designed the Brooklyn Botani Gardens as we know today.

TRAVEL, GREECE

Athens has so much to see and do just within the city (link to my Athens travel guide). But, there are also many sights and attractions that you can visit on day trip from Athens. Most are easily reached either by boat, organized tour, public transport or a short ride. Depending on what you like there are various options for day trips from ancient ruins and museums to beaches and coastal towns to monastery and churches.

TRAVEL, GREECE

Founded in 508 BC, Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world, with history sprawling over 5 000 years. Today Athens is the capital of Greece and has more than 3 000 000 residents. In Athens you can find the world’s largest collection of Ancient Greek ruins and artifacts. Athens is usually the starting point for a lot of travelers when visiting Greece and it’s islands, the Cyclades islands are fairly close to Athens. Even though I travel to Greece every summer and have been to Greece more than 40 times I had never been to Athens until now. It was on my travel list for this year and I am really glad I got to visit it.

TRAVEL, ITALY

A must visit when in Italy is the region Tuscany. Birthplace of the renaissance and Italian language evolving from the Tuscan dialect. Tuscany is an idyll of olive groves, vineyards, hill-towns and frescoed churches.

There is so much to and see while in Tuscany from popular tourists spots such as Florence and Pisa to lesser known places like Lucca and small villages. Beginning of August I visited Tuscany and fell in love with the region, I said to myself that I need to come back to Tuscany and stay a bit longer and explore the country side.

TRAVEL, ITALY

Florence is the home of the renaissance, art, architecture, history, literature and many more. Which is no surprise why this city attracts more than 10 million visitors each year. With legendary sights, renaissance architecture, winding streets and so much history Florence is a place that you must visit at least once in your lifetime.

It’s a perfect destination for art lovers, history buffs, foodies and good wine lovers. Florence is a great for any kind of trip from a family trip, to a group of friends trip to a romantic getaway. It’s a city that has so much to offer, so there will be activities for all types of people.
