Water Activities

Stay-put swimswear, cozy fleece by Patagonia or The North Face & a camping couch...Backcountry offers all we need for lakeside adventures.
A huge thank you to Backcountry & Shopstyle for sponsoring this post. We just returned from a three-week trip to the lake. And by 'the lake' I mean the gorgeous, clear-watered, sandy bottomed, hidden gem of a lake located somewhere in the wilderness of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.    Lake Life: All This Woman Needs For An Outdoor Adventure No big deal. I grew...
From my trip to Mexico, I bring you not only a packing list, but this li'l rundown of things to do, what to eat & what to wear in Riviera Maya (+ Tulum).
Friends. Put the Riviera Maya on your travel list. You will not be disappointed. As a fan of the lovely country of Mexico, I'd visited the Yucatán Peninsula before, but this time around, we got to take more advantage of the beauty it has to offer (aka, we didn't just sit on the beach and drink piña coladas this...
Never in my wildest dreams did I realize that we were literally across the street from THIS. I don’t even know how to best describe this place — swimming platform? Natural swimming hole? Cliff-jumping spot? It’s all of those things, really. And this spot became the central point for our entire week in Sicily.
We chartered a pretty epic speedboat in Syracuse, Ortigia in Sicily. Our boat excursion included swimming to a restaurant — perfect family-friendly day.
I had booked a total of two pre-planned experiences for our week in Sicily. That’s pretty much my usual speed: two per week. I’ve found that nothing stresses me out more than a fully packed schedule, especially on vacation. I need my headspace. I need time for…spontaneity. I need to wander. I also need, if I can get it, a...
Swimming platform? Swimming hole? Cliff-jumping spot? It’s all of those things, really. This spot became the central point for our entire week in Sicily.
I didn’t quite realize, when I had booked our flat in Ortigia, Sicily, exactly where we would be staying. I knew we were near the water, I knew we were in the old town of Syracuse (that’s the Ortigia part), but never in my wildest dreams did I realize that we were literally across the street from this: Must Do:...
A long weekend at the beach is the just right Rx for a summer refresh. I brought a li'l capsule wardrobe too, so here's my packing list for the shore.
My mom was visiting Philly over Memorial Day Weekend, so we ended up taking her to the shore for a few nights. Since we were short on time, we booked a room at the ICONA Hotel instead of renting a beach house. It turned out to be a perfect little weekend getaway, especially for anyone who can't commit to...
We LOVE a day at the beach, so we're looking at some seriously cute outfits — especially for those who don't wear shorts. Jumpsuits & skirts — we're on it.
Y'all know getting ready for a beach vacay in the middle of winter is...daunting. White legs, holiday/winter tummy in full effect (I've been baking way too much lately), etc. It's all good though. If you have a trip coming up for spring break or just to escape to somewhere warm soon, I've got your back. Here's what I actually...
Art Deco hotels on Collins Avenue & shopping on Lincoln Road — a day trip to South Beach in Miami wouldn't be complete without 'em. See how we do.
We recently took a little hiatus from the Left Coast and hopped over (and by hopped I mean traveled all day) to visit my parents in Southwest Florida. They winter in Naples these days, and sometimes we get to benefit...and it's always warm there. Yay! We've been a few times over the years now, so this time, Pinky and...
A romantic vacay can be a test for looking sexy & feeling confident when coming to terms with your postpartum body. Here's how we do it for Colombia.
Oh, Cartagena! You are magical! If by any chance you follow me on Instagram @julietatorresd, you may have seen we just spent 3 weeks in Colombia. Even though we could be traveling other places, we always go back to our country because of one thing: Family. We usually spend our time in Bogotá, but this time we decided to...
hiking reykjadalaur with kids
Our trip to Iceland was totally incredible.  It was just...wild.  The hiking was mind-blowing, the vistas awe-inspiring, and there's no doubt in our minds that Icelanders know how to live it up (especially in the summer).  I have so much more to share about our trip, but I wanted to start with one of our top experiences:  hiking Reykjadalur. Reykjadalur,...
