TRAVEL VIBES: SHOP ALL
"I once traveled to 5 cities and 4 countries in 24 hours."
"With that kind of commuting, I am ALL about ease and comfort in terms of my travel vibe. Staples such as these certainly got me through 2016: jeans, t-shirt, hat, good skin care, sunglasses, a jacket, and, my personal favorite, sneakers."
COORDINATES OF HER°
Hi! I’m Kristi Bailey, a Louisiana native and now Los Angeles transplant, who left a career in architecture to become a world traveler. Since then, I have traveled to over 50 countries and have collected countless memories of gratitude, hospitality, and kindness around the globe. I share these stories here on my travel blog. Thanks for stopping by!
ESSENTIALS FOR HER:
Watching the sunrise over Bryce Canyon will forever be one of my favorite adventure stories. It was beyond beautiful and deeply inspirational. Here is a little video from Nick and I's time spent here one morning.
From flower markets to old world cafes to stunning architecture, Vienna was inspiration overload. But, my biggest moment of inspiration here actually came from a conversation I had with an Uber driver.
We stayed the night in a Buddhist temple and woke up to a kind monk offering to make us fresh coffee. We chatted about our different languages, guessed each other’s ages, and also discovered that Nick thinks I am old. Just kidding, but seriously, just wait for my reaction...
I have been trying to recall for a while now, so I hope I am getting this right, but I think this was my first ever solo stay in a foreign country. Since this little hotel, I have flown solo quite a lot, but if my memory is serving my correctly, this was my very first little stay over seas alone.
As a little girl, I grew up hearing stories about Vienna from my grandmother. From long afternoons spent at old world cafes to late nights at the Austrian Opera House, she still says this city was her favorite place she ever visited. Walking these streets, I could see why she fell so madly in love.
If you are heading to Mammoth Springs, California, then make sure to check out Woolley’s Snow Tube Park. The views from the top are beautiful, and there is a pulling system taking you up from the bottom!
Without a doubt, this large complex, is the number one visited tourist attraction in Budapest and it is well deserved. The panoramic views of Pest and the Danube are unparalleled.
Thank you to all those I have met along these journeys around the world who have taught me kindness and showed me compassion. I am forever grateful. And, my only hope is that I always pay it forward in some way in some other part of the world.
