Ooh, I am SO living vicariously through you, Brenna!! What a jaw-droppingly gorgeous state…especially the parts without consistent cell service 🥰

Looks like an amazing trip, Maddie! It is comical how bad some of the sunscreen options are—I'm currently trying the Tower 28 one 🤞

I'm so glad you mentioned Tower 28, Sophia—I hadn't heard of it before, but it looks incredible. Definitely going to give it a try ASAP!!

Me neither! But the Sephora salesperson was also a fair-skinned redhead and swore by it—so hoping you can find your perfect shade.

Oh, I love to hear it. I've already picked out a shade and am strongly considering buying some JuiceBalm while I'm at it...! 🙈 (I'm a sucker for good branding.)

You have given me serious FOMO! 🤩

Totally aligned with talking to strangers. On my last hiking trip through Ontario’s Lion’s Head, we came across a lovely couple who were just completing a three-week hiking/camping trip around Lake Superior and gave us all kinds of amazing ideas and recommendations.

Oh, I love this story, Erin!

And if anyone has FOMO, it's me—you live in such a beautiful country! My boyfriend and I were trying to figure out how to attain Canadian permanent residency during our vacation. 😂

You were so generous with the links!!! I love when someone shares what they use and then drops the link 😍 Thank you, thank you!

I LOVE picking out a regular spot when I’m on vacation. For me, it’s the main way to really get a feel for a place and the people that inhabit it. Plus it’s so fun chatting up the people that work there! 🙏

You are the queen of link generosity, Jenovia! It's funny...I considered not writing this post at all, because I wondered if my faves were interesting enough to share 😅 But I always love a peek into other people's routines (you're such a great example), so I forged ahead—and I'm so glad it was fun to read.

wow i never thought of a vacation hobby! i think mine is sketching, altho I do it on mini-vacations here in my city too. I always like to have a consistent thing to travel with - a scent for the pillow, or certain music or an eye mask. helps me feel at home wherever i am.

I aspire to be someone who sketches, so I love to hear this! Your travel ritual sounds so calming, too. 🥰
