I Have 2 Rules:

  1. A picture is only as good as the memory you made while taking it… do your best to never “force” a photo of it creates a fake moment. And ALSO do your best not to have your face stuck behind a phone or camera the whole time… because what memory is that?
  2. Never go somewhere without learning about it // soaking it in // talking to locals. Take a second to learn the culture, the food, the history, how to treat people. It not worth visiting somewhere JUST as a tourist who gets in the way. Slow down and learn something about the world you live in such a small part of.
  3. Okay 3… no one cares what you wear. Except YOU. You don’t need 50 swimsuits or expensive clothes. Be comfy and feel cute. Especially the comfy part.

The Memories


My name is Rebekah and I’m 28. My goal is to visit 30 countries before I turn 30.

Scroll down to read all about the places I’ve been so far! I figured I’d tell y’all a few stories and talk about some of the things we did / where we stayed / what to eat / places to see, what I wish we did differently!

The City - Oslo


SPAIN - Ibiza

Took a pill in Ibiza


Okay no I didn’t. But it was magical without it!

Oh and we each got a tattoo…


It took me forever to choose what I wanted, but I made a decision. Sage. With a leaf to go with it. Sage is (was) my middle name. But it also means wisdom… wisdom isn’t usually granted over night unless you’re Saul from the Bible. It’s built by experience and gained by insight and mistakes and learned by truths from God. Wisdom is my personal goal in life, but not for me… but that I might be able to give it away and be there for others to point them to life and hope.


DENMARK - Copenhagen

ISRAEL & PALESTINE


MALTA

The REAL Gladiator & Game of Thrones…


Did you know that they actually filmed these movies here? The colosseum in the Gladiator is here! Not Rome.

‘this gorgeous natural bridge was the spot of a famous scene in Game of Thrones! (Don’t go looking though… you’ll never find it). It’s on the island of Gozo, and it crashed down a couple years ago. It was a WONDER to see though… the waves were violent, and powerful. We both just stared in awe. No tour bus. No guide… just us and the forces and beauty of God.


VARIOUS - Europe

In Paris


Would you believe that my friend and I were asked to model for a clothing brand while here??

My friend had never seen "Taken" before… so I was extra cautious, and insisted we WALK to the location and change clothes with each other guarding the door…


Venice Floods


Did you know that? If you’ve been, you probably learned… but we saw people carrying knee high rain boots in broad daylight and quickly figured out why! We trudged along barefoot as the tide came in and honestly loved it. Didn’t think about how awfully smelly and dirty it was. We soaked it all in (literally.. not so much like a local).


We Snuck into the Palace of Versailles


yep… didn’t know you needed tickets in advance. Perfectly willing to pay, nearly throwing cash to the guards. Didn’t work. So when they turned their heads, we covered our hair and changed our clothes and just… walked in. We didn’t come THAT FAR just to walk away. We impersonated statues, enjoyed the gardens, and toured the palace. Loved it! Would recommend tickets though…


I could live in Germany


Various photos from Europe…

Travel Recommendations


  • Buy a multi-day "passport" to all the museums, when available (mainly France). It covers almost all of them and saves you money… It doesn’t count for the Palace of Versailles 😂
  • TRAVEL BY SUBWAY OR TRAIN - it’s really not hard and can get you absolutely anywhere. Plus you meet people!
