The top things to do, see, and eat in Mexico’s capital city.
An underrated destination, Mexico City should be added to your bucket list. While many people solely think about Mexico through the sepia filter used in ‘90s movies about the country, Mexico City is a modern wonder and it’s time to see it filter-free. Many people come to Mexico City for the food and they are not wrong—the dining in the city is divine, and from street food to five-star dining, you’ll find everything you want here. Note: Attractions (like the Anthropology Museum) that are currently closed without an expected opening date are not included in this guide.

Is there a better way to island-hop in Greece than through dreamy properties that provide the ideal setting for your adventure?
Helping you be more prepared for vanlife than I was.
I was wildly misinformed about vanlife. When I cashed in on my van-dwelling dreams, I had visions of awe-inspiring road trips, showering outside immersed in nature, and epic sunrise views framed by my billowing curtains and van doors.

But the bulk of vanlife is rugged, complicated, frustrating, and chock-full of chores. I’m no stranger to uncomfortable travel. But vanlife brought a whole new meaning to the word “unglamorous.” Don’t get me wrong, I don’t regret choosing to live in a van, but these are 20 things that I do regret about vanlife.
