Welcome to the Expat Diaries! Before we start, I want to thank all of you for linking up with us every month. Because of your participation and support, Chelsea and I have been able to meet some of the most amazing women and men living all over the world. We’ve been able to share embarrassing expat stories (man, I love those posts), travel tips, gorgeous photography, and I’ve loved every moment of it.
Since the link-up is coming to an end very soon, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite travel posts with you all. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane!
P.S. We’re doing one more link-up next month since I had so many bloggers sign up to co-host and I didn’t want to disappoint. The LAST Expat Diaries will be Thursday, May 1. Seriously, guys. This will be the last one.
My Top Travel Posts:
1. San Francisco.
Our trip to San Francisco included a tour of Fisherman’s Wharf and the Mission, plus a stroll through the Castro. Oh, and Philz Coffee. Philz Coffee is a must.

While we were expats in the UK, we tried to take as many weekend trips as possible and found that we were able to stretch our budget if we planned ahead and compared discount airlines. Here are our top tips for traveling on these budget airlines.
3. Amalfi Coast, Italy.
When we went on a Mediterranean cruise, my favorite stop was the Amalfi Coast in Italy. You won’t believe how beautiful it is.
4. Dublin, Ireland.
Castles, Guinness, and Trinity College. We explored it all while staying in Dublin.
5. 10 Travel Photography Tips.
Formatting memory cards, travel tripods, lighting, landmarks, and little extras. Do you know how to prepare for your next vacation? Check out these 10 travel photography tips I’ve compiled for you.
6. Cruden Bay, Scotland.
On a rare, sunny day in Scotland, we decided to travel to Cruden Bay to check out Slain’s Castle and beautiful cliffs on the coast of the North Sea. The colors in Scotland are vivid and make any view look like it’s out of a movie, and even though the castle wasn’t a beauty, it was interesting enough and its placement on the coastline made it a must-see.
7. Saint Augustine, Florida.
St. Augustine is known as the “Ancient City” and one of the most adorable places I’ve ever visited in the United States. The main street shops are charming, there are plenty of attractions (check out Castillo de San Marcos), and the bed and breakfasts? Some of the best.
