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.


In January we decided to leave gloomy and cold NYC and go somewhere sunny and warm, the decision fell upon Miami. Instead of directly flying NYC to Miami we decided to do a fun roadtrip along the East Coast and make stops along the way. So, we booked a one way car rental with pick up from NYC and drop off at Miami, packed all our things and started our one week long roadtrip. During that week we passed through 9 states and made stops in 7. We visited historic towns such as Charleston, Savannah and St. Augustine, national parks, cute little coastal towns and much more.



Embarking on a journey to Savannah, Georgia, is akin to stepping through the pages of a time-worn novel, where every cobblestone street, majestic square, and whispering oak tells a story of intrigue, history, and southern charm. Savannah, with its hauntingly beautiful landscapes and genteel demeanor, beckons travelers to immerse themselves in its rich tapestry of culture, cuisine, and captivating history. Allow me to be your guide through the enchanting city of Savannah, offering personal insights and tips to ensure your visit is as memorable as the city itself.


Embarking on a journey to Charleston, South Carolina, is like stepping into a beautifully woven tapestry of history, culture, and natural splendor. This city, cradled by the gentle waves of the Atlantic and shaded by ancient oaks, holds a story at every corner and invites you, the traveler, to become part of its ongoing narrative. Charleston is not merely a destination; it’s a feeling, a moment in time preserved yet ever-evolving. Let me guide you through this enchanting city with a personal touch, sharing insights and tips gleaned from my own experiences and those of locals who call Charleston home.


Embark on a journey to the Yucatan Peninsula, where the past and present blend seamlessly beneath the Mexican sun. This enchanting region, a canvas of rich histories, natural splendors, and cultural vibrancy, invites the curious traveler to delve into its mysteries. From the majestic ruins of ancient civilizations to the tranquil azure waters of the Caribbean, the Yucatan offers an array of experiences that awaken the senses and captivate the soul.

Wrapping up 2023

I love writing my yearly recaps as much as I love going back and rereading them. It’s such a nice walk down to memory lane, but also a great way to see how far I’ve come and where all life has taken me. You can find my year recaps in the lifestyle section of my blog.


In the city that never sleeps, where the rhythms of life are fast and furious, New York City harbors a treasure trove for the bibliophile, a sanctuary where quiet contemplation and the intoxicating scent of books fill the air. As someone deeply in love with the written word, I’ve had the privilege of exploring the numerous bookstores sprinkled across the city, and each of them holds a unique place in my heart. It’s not just the titles within, but the stories these stores tell, the memories they evoke, and the knowledge they offer. Today, let me take you on a tour of some of my most cherished literary sanctuaries in the Big Apple.


Fall foliage road trip through upstate New York

Let me paint a picture for you: the days are growing shorter, there’s a distinct chill in the air, and all around, the world is changing. Trees that once stood tall and green are now ablaze with fiery reds, oranges, and golds. This, my friends, is autumn in Upstate New York—a season of pure magic where the very landscape seems to come alive with color and the air is infused with the earthy scent of fallen leaves. It’s a time when this part of the world becomes an enchanting canvas of nature’s artistry, a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed. Upstate New York in the fall is not just a destination; it’s an experience, a must-visit for anyone who treasures the beauty of the season.


Saudi Arabia 7 Day Itinerary [Riyadh & AlUla]

Took me a while, but I finally sat down to write my travel posts from Saudi Arabia. My impressions (even 5 months later) are still very much that Saudi Arabia is a beautiful country with out of this world nature and the beauty of being unspoiled by tourists (I hope this stays). It will probably be my favorite trip I’ve taken in 2023 and in top 5 trips I’ve taken in my life so far.

In this blog post I will be sharing the itinerary I had for my week long trip to Saudi Arabia. During the 7 days there I managed to visit Riyadh (including one day trip outside of Riyadh) and AlUla.
