A Quick Guide Through the South of France with @The Girl Habit

A Quick Guide Through the South of France with @The Girl Habit

Our good friend Leore shares a few of her favorite must-see’s in the South of France… make them your must-see’s, too!

Antibes Farmers Market

Antibes is an open-air market, resting (or bustling, rather) under a sea of tents in the town’s center square. Its cobblestone road is lined with vendors selling fresh spices, honeys, French-made soaps and body lotions, fresh produce and sweets. This farmers’ market is an amazing place to stock up on French-infused beauty essential while eating healthy snacks.

Plage des Ondes

This small local’s beach is ideal for relaxing and swimming, the water shallow and clear enough to see fish gliding around your feet. Because the water is so calm, you can swim out very far and float for as long as you’d like. And don’t forget — salt water cleanses skin and balances oil production.

Plage de Pampelonne in Saint Tropez

Saint Tropez is known for its private beach clubs and famous parties but, aside from the fun, Place de Pampelonne offers an endless stretch of sand to run along, to take in all the action from a distance. Stop in a beach club that catches your eye and grab a fresh juice along the way during your workout.

Cannes

Cannes is THE place to take in endless shopping and endless — and delicious — food all along the French Riviera, with a few great yoga studios dotted in between it all. I love finding yoga all over the world. Re-centering yourself and taking time to stretch after long travel is so important, especially when your mind and body are taking in a new environment.

Gourdon

Gordon is a charming mountain town, with a climate perfect for growing orange trees, olive trees and perfume plants.Here you can walk through the perched village and visit one of many local perfumeries.
Less of a hotel and more of a museum, art lies everywhere in Colombe d’Or, teeming with Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and Léger, Calder and Braque. What makes it so very special? These 20th century artists donated a piece in exchange for room and board here.
St. Paul de Vence itself is swarmed with art galleries via its small cobblestone roads — a perfect place to get inspired and pick up a pen and paper and start drawing or writing.
While here, I also highly recommend visiting beach town Juan Les Pins, the village of Eze and Nice.

How to Do Sydney Like a Local, According to Lano Founder Kirsten Carriol

How to Do Sydney Like a Local, According to Lano Founder Kirsten Carriol

What to see and where to swim, eat, and shop in the Australian city…

This post comes from our contributor, Katheryn Erickson.

Spend five minutes chatting with Lano founder Kirsten Carriol about life in Sydney, and you may find yourself plotting exactly how to move there. “Sydney is very relaxed — it’s all about getting outdoors, having healthy food, and going to the beach,” she says. “You’ve got this cool vibe-y city, but you can drive 20 minutes and be alone in a national park. That’s the magic of Sydney.” Here, the creator of the lanolin-based beauty line shares her picks for everything from the best place to pick up fresh jam to the most unforgettable swim you’ll ever take. Ready to book your ticket?

For a perfect Aussie beach day…

Sydney has a super wiggly coastline, which means that there are tiny beaches everywhere. But Bondi Beach is the closest of the big ones. It sounds cliché because it is such a famous spot, but it really is quintessential Sydney. We live nearby and there are people on it all year. Everyone from babies to 80-year-old surfers make their way to Bondi.

For the most iconic Sydney meal…

Brunch at Bondi Beach is absolutely huge, and Bills started the whole scene. They’re famous for their sweet corn fritters: smashed avocado, lemon juice, alfalfa sprouts, and corn fritters with chili jam. It’s killer. I’ve been having it for 20 years.

For an insanely gorgeous walk…

Exercise and eating healthfully is an absolute must in Australia. We have gyms, but most Sydneysiders stay active outside in the fresh air. There’s this amazing trail called the Bondi to Bronte Walk and it’s the most spectacular thing. It takes about 45 minutes and you walk along the cliff tops and the coastline — there’s just nothing better.

For taking a (shark free) dip — with a view…

Icebergs is a public, natural swimming pool where the water comes in from the ocean. It got its name because it is so cold! The pool has been there since the 50s, and when Bondi was still really quiet, all the locals would go there; 60-year-old surfers would do laps at 5am and then go and surf. If you’re a swimmer and you’re healthy, it’s exhilarating. The restaurant is another place everyone must go for dinner or lunch. The views are the pinnacle of Sydney magnificence, and the Parmesan & pea side dish is legendary.

For a facial that’ll cure even the worst jet lag…

Jocelyn Petroni does the most relaxing facial in Sydney; everyone falls asleep under her fingers. She’s also number one for manicures by a very long way. She does all the photo shoots and the most perfect, pared back nails.

For a farm-to-table experience…

The Grounds of Alexandria is a farm you can go to in the middle of Sydney. You can spend a whole day there: They’ve got homemade jams, the best coffee, and everything they serve is grown in their vegetable patch. There’s also a potting shed where you can pick your own veggies, herb gardens, a flower market, a pig called Kevin Bacon, and a rooster named Russell Crow(e). It’s very farm vibe-y, which I love because I’m a farm girl.

For shopping like a local…

Paddington Markets is where a lot of Australian designers, like Zimmerman, got their start (I remember them being there!). People set up stalls on Sunday and take them down at the end of the day, and it’s still a fertile ground for up-and-coming brands. There’s an outdoor market at Bondi too, which is cute and a bit more hippie with handmade candles, natural soaps, and essential oils. Sydney is also very big on growers’ markets at the moment, and Carriage Works has beer, local-made cider, and artisanal cheese. It’s very curated — total urban hipster heaven.

WHERE TO STAY

Temple Lodge, Bingin Beach

WHY WE LOVE IT

The View: The stunning Temple Lodge overlooks the ocean from atop Bukit peninsula’s cliffs. You can access the beach from a staircase connected to the lodge (which we HIGHLY recommend). Also, don’t miss the infinity pool — you’ll feel as though you’re swimming right out to the vast ocean.

The Yoga: Offered on the daily, with schedules updated seasonally. Classes vary from Hatha Flow to Vinyasa, Yin Yang Flow and 5 Element Yoga. They welcome all ability levels and the temple is perfect for ultimate meditation.

The Spa: The Temple Lodge provides personalized spa treatments incorporating organic herbs and oils. The spa room is very intimate — and every single person we encountered was beyond welcoming.

WHAT TO DO

Bingin Beach: Bingin Beach is an idyllic spot nestled on the Indian Ocean. Surfers travel from all over the world just to say they were there! We recommend trying out at least one surf lesson (or two). This is definitely the spot to do so.

Morning Run: The village surrounding the Temple Lodge is stunningly colorful and classic Balinese. Take a morning jog and explore your surroundings. And, if you lose your way, there are friendly folks everywhere to sort you right.

Gili Islands: Escape to the Gili Islands and snorkel with the turtles! Hundreds hatch on the Gili Islands annually and the babies are the cutest. Swim in the crystal clear waters alongside these magnificent creatures.

Nusa Dua: If you’re really up for an adventure, we recommend you try a scuba diving class at Nusa Dua Beach! The ocean floor is full of bright coral, submerged statues, and an array of sea life.

WHERE TO STAY

Sal Secret Spot, Bukit

WHY WE LOVE IT

Design: This eco-resort boutique resort is beautifully designed with clean white walls, a saltwater swimming pool, private balconies and open-air design. We loved the daily communal breakfasts and immersion in nature. Each room is so uniquely different! It was exciting to visit each one its unique theme!

Size: We loved the intimate nature of this resort… incredibly private and tucked away from the world. Sal Secret Spot affords luxury feels in a magical environment.

Beach: One of Sal’s perks? Its access to some of the most famous surf spots in Bali. The resort recommends visiting between May and September for the best surf experience!

WHAT TO DO

Uluwatu Temple: We highly recommend making the trek up to the Uluwatu Temple. Watching the sorbetcolored sunset over the Indian Ocean from 200+ feet above sea level is truly breathtaking. Monkeys may greet you at the front of the temple and, be warned, they love to steal!

El Kabron: In keeping with the theme of sunsets, consider treating yourself to a dinner at El Kabron outdoor restaurant at dusk. They provide awesome Spanish appetizers, great drinks, and take reservations online!

And, don’t forget to explore a few of our favorite beaches:

Padang Padang: This beach, one of Bali’s biggest surf spots, also serves as the perfect place for laying out and/or swimming in the crystal blue water. The rocks poking out of the Indian Ocean paint a stunning backdrop as surfers dance along the waves.

Uluwatu: Exploring the coastline of Uluwatu Beach made for one of my favorite memories. The water was so clear and warm, the rocks so stunning, it just felt perfect. Words dare not even describe how amazing this place is — just go and see for yourself.

Saba: Though this beach is a bit of a trek, this black sand beach is pretty incredible and worth the drive. We arrived at sunrise, just in time to watch the sun peek above the horizon and the fishermen pulling their colorful fishing boats out to sea…so many bright colors juxtaposed against the black sand. If you’re up for it, horseback riding is a huge activity on this beach. The horses even love to walk into the ocean so make sure you’re wearing a swimsuit!

WHERE WE STAYED

Bambu Indah, Ubud

WHY WE LOVE IT

The Food: Dapoer, the resort’s restaurant, can hardly be called just a restaurant. Their team of gardeners harvest and hand-pick the on-site organic veggies, herbs and rice used to create each dish. The kitchen cooks warmly welcome guests into their massive space to observe the making of their meals. I can say, from personal experience, it’s pretty incredible.

The Location: The resort is quite off the beaten path (in the best way possible). You have two options when staying here… Option A: you can stay in the Javanese teak wood villas by the restaurant and lava stone natural pool… Option B: travel down the mountain in a hand-made elevator, over a bamboo bridge, and into a carved out safe haven overlooking the lush jungle and personal freshwater pools. These two cave houses are luxurious and tucked away from the rest of the resort. If you’re up for bathing outside and watching the sunset from the comfort of your bed, this is the place for you.

The Yoga: Walk to the centrally located open-air Minang House for morning yoga. If you are a yogi or seeking peaceful meditation, this is a must visit. Fun fact: each curve of the roof mimics the exact symmetry of a rising full moon.

The Adventures: The small village is located on the Sayan Ridge across from the Bongkasa rice paddies. Bambu Indah offers personalized adventure themed activities for those seeking to absorb everything this location has to offer.

WHAT TO DO

Monkey Forest: Take a 20-minute ride to the Ubud Monkey Forest…trust us, you won’t regret it. It’s full of baby monkeys, iguanas, and trees towering hundreds of feet above.

Sari Organic: Hop on a motorbike to Sari Organic for lunch! Crack open a fresh coconut, eat a delicious, clean, organic meal, and overlook the glistening rice paddies. Its novelty comes from the truly unbelievable surroundings and open-air eating environment.

Pura Tirta Empul: Give an offering, put on a sarong, and take a dip into the holy water. This is a truly surreal and spiritual experience…koi fish swim around you as Balinese locals pray for healing and spiritual enlightenment. Tip – don’t wear a white t-shirt, and make sure you bring an offering.

Ubud Art Market: Shop for trinkets, silk scarves, sarongs, hand-woven bags, and local goods at the art market! It is open daily, and centrally located, which makes it a must to visit. We bought some incredible hand-woven bags there that accessorize pretty much anything.

Tegalalang Rice Terrace: Ubud’s tiered rice paddies are quite a hike up and down the stairs, but well worth it if you’re seeking adventure. If you get hungry, there are plenty of cafes and restaurants overlooking the rice terrace! Tip – drink fresh coconut water before and after since you’ll definitely be working up a sweat.

Travel Tuesday: Lex Weinstein in Morocco

If you find the patience, the rewards are that of a dream…

This post comes to us from our friend, Lex Weinstein.

As I stood in the arrivals terminal at Agadir airport, I was asked a question that abruptly interrupted my contemplative daze, soaking in the elements, absorbing this unfamiliar desert landscape. “Would you like a cigarette?” A tall, thin, dark-skinned man peered at me inquisitively. Normally I would answer with disgust, but with a strange excitement I politely declined. Finally I had arrived to one of my life-long dream destinations and deep down, the lonestar, no-rules approach to living was exactly what I envisioned of the people in this rugged territory. We chatted briefly and after we bid farewell, I walked towards my taxi and whispered to myself, “Welcome to Morocco.”

Time in the desert moves at a different pace than the rest of the world, a blessing and a curse depending on which side of the coin you choose to hold against your palm. Traffic zips past at frightening speeds while the midday sun burns through the sky at a snail’s pace. My first encounter with this challenge was when the airline lost my luggage — 3 days without surfboards while the waves were pumping; head high swell, no wind, sun shining bright. Each hour I went without felt like an eternity, and I struggled with seeing the bright side of this misfortune. But Morocco has this incredible way of giving you a second chance to make the right move or find another path, and so I decided to use it as an opportunity to enjoy the other aspects of my surroundings. Amouage Surf + Yoga Hotel kept me plenty busy — their guides took me on afternoon excursions to exotic markets and ancient cities. We hiked at sunset, practicing yoga while brilliant colors set the sky on fire as the sun tucked behind the horizon. From every postcard corner you turn, there’s something to discover — from the warm, inner blanket of the local mint tea to the brilliant colored tile and architecture at every glance. Below are my Morocco musts for anyone looking to take on this dream destination. 

Where to: 

StayTaghazout is a small but buzzing little surf town on the southwestern coast of Morocco, with everything you want to experience from North Africa with a full coastal vibe. Surf Maroc is a one-stop shop offering an array of accommodations based on the experience you crave. Between Taghazout Villa (an upscale hostel experience), Villa Mandala (a week long yoga/surf retreat house) or Amouage (a surf + yoga boutique hotel) you can experience the best of surf, yoga and ambiance that this quaint Moroccan town has to offer, at any budget. 

Surf — The best part of Surf Maroc? The surf guides and group tours offered with your stay. Based on your skill level, you can join a group or get a private guide to take you to any kind of wave you want, from longboard peelers at Imessouane to overhead barrels at Anchor Point. There’s a huge variety along this stretch of coast so I recommend getting a guide to show you the in’s and out’s.

ShopTaghazout hosts an epic little market on Wednesdays, but the Agadir Market occurs every day and has a ton to offer as well. Also, do NOT leave Morocco without checking out Essaouria, a town adored by Jimi Hendrix when he visited in the 1970’s with a cafe created in his honor. Winding cobblestone streets and back alleys are lined with the most incredible clothes, bags, lanterns, leather crafts, crystals, homegoods….the list goes on. Worth the couple hour drive from Tag, for sure! 😉

See — Go to Paradise Valley and hike into a gorgeous, palm tree-lined canyon and have tajine by the river. Wander around Tag and drink local mint tea by the water, watching the fisherman go out on their colorful boats. Go to happy hour on Moroccan Night at Amouage and watch authentic drumming and dance as the sun sets in the most beautiful ombre of fiery hues you’ll ever see. Then take yoga at sunrise on the rooftop of the hotel or get a traditional Hammam massage to fight off the jet lag. There’s really no wrong way to experience Morocco, so just get there (with patience) and the rest will unfold in imperfect perfection!

When my boards finally arrived, an unexpected bump in swell had me in the water until the stars came out. The taste of my first sunset surf was sweeter than I could have ever imagined, leaving me with the question every traveller asks themselves — would I have had as much fun if everything had gone right? In Morocco the answer is simple: the lonestar, no rules approach must be embraced at full accord, and if you find the patience to look at the bright side in a Moroccan desert, the rewards are that of a dream.

In Bloom: A West Coast Wildflower Guide

Where to find the best super blooms in southern California…

A wet winter in LA can only mean one thing. Whoa, scratch that. Not just one thing, it means a lot of really amazing things for nature, like the incredible effect rain had on the drought. For the past 5+ years, California has endured such a severe dry spell that crops began to wither, produce prices rose, lakes dried up, and local residents traded in their lawns for cacti and rocks. But this year, California has received more precipitation than normal and the results are magnificent. Not only are some drought effects reversing, but wildflowers start to blossom on the hills around southern California during the middle of March and into early April, creating a carpet of color. It’s a quick and finicky window, but it’s a beautiful one.

There has been a lot of talk (some people are saying this is the best super bloom in a decade) about the wildflower crop, so I packed up my film camera and hit the road this week to find out for myself. For the last few years, our dry winters only yielded patches of sporadic color. This year had to be different. Check out what I found below. 

Poppy Reserve at Antelope Valley — The window for the poppy bloom is happening right now! If you’re currently in southern California, get there as soon as you can before it starts to get too hot and the poppies are gone until — fingers crossed — next year. If you don’t want to go into the Reserve itself, there are many hills surrounding the park that are littered in orange. Explore the dirt roads to find the gold.

Lake Elsinore — Lake Elsinore is en route to Anza-Borrego (if you are coming from LA), and the hillside is covered in orange poppies. Just punch Lake Elsinore into your geo tags on Instagram and you will soon be flooded with little orange beauties.

Anza-Borrego National Park –– When I traveled to Anza-Borrego six days ago, the bloom was just beginning. Small buds carpeted the desert floor — speckles of purple, yellow, and white were only starting their bloom, but the gorgeous mountainous background and blue sky backdrop made the trip worth it. The scent of flowers here is incredible, as if you entered an orb of subtle perfume. Hot tip: I just heard that the bloom is in full swing now — flowers are taller, brighter and larger.

Death Valley National Park — Tall yellow flowers with long green stems sway back and forth in the warm desert air in Death Valley, creating a sea of yellow.  Get there soon, as temps are increasing and the wildflowers are going quick.

Your Doit-All In-A-Day Grand Canyon Manual

The Grand Canyon, whenever you just have twenty four hours…

Would you actually wish to try to escape, if actually just for each day? Whenever your nbsp & center wishes;to flee  the program of life that is everyday? Toss it jump within the  go. and vehicle everywhere… just-so long while you visit a world beyond your own. That sensation burns within me and, just a couple months back, I behaved on that hot desire and went 8 hours to relaxation my eyes on the place I’ve never observed — a location therefore regal and special, it’s regarded among the eight miracles of the planet. I just had but desired to put around I possibly could into browsing with the Grand Canyon.

The Grand Canyon prevails thanks to the& nbsp Water within the upper area of Arizona — 277 kilometers long and certainly will be as heavy and as broad as 18 kilometers as you. Our emotions so severe the very first second I noticed it that obtain and I needed to cry ill all at one time. The Edge produces vision unlike something I’ve actually observed & mdash shades across my periphery of red, orange and crimson and also the odor of clean rainfall on wood woods. Nbsp & its consistency; is nbsp; , level that is unique sometimes while, at others becomes& nbsp extinct. The Grand Canyon performs with stunning and enchanting methods in your eyes, and you’ll discover nbsp;somewhat & the mouth area leftover . To explain the Grand Canyon in one single term is buddies, and spectacular, that doesn’t actually scratch the top.

Should you ever end up there, or are organizing a visit (get it done! Get it done!), allow this 24 hour manual be of support.

Where you should remain: if you’re able to’t discover hiking (attempt Mather Campground), remain in Grand Canyon Town, an enchanting city situated in the South Edge. The Town it has been doing this since 1901 once the Santa Fe Railroad from Williams, Arizona Towards the South Rim was finished and works like a safehaven for visitors. There are certainly a several excellent lodging choices, but I really like Yavapai Hotel — excellent support, austere hotels, and wildlife right outside your doorway.

Where-to consume: should you’re-in need of the picnic meal or simply a post-backpack chilled drink, I would recommend Yavapai Tavern. Or outside the playground is just a small-town named Arizona, Tusayan. Ensure that you quit at Sophie’s Asian Home before or after browsing the playground. Two phrases: also great. And excellent vegetarian choices aswell!

Where you can hike: in most integrity, men, there’s no poor place to consume the watch or even to backpack. Every position, every picture, every place is ideal. But when you’re buying reasonable to challenging evening backpack, I would recommend Santa Maria Springs from Hermits Rest Trailhead. The backpack is 2.5 miles down &nbsp and the canyon; weaves out and in of huge boulders to& nbsp purposefully positioned stones. It’s not really a backpack for nbsp & novices;— make sure to pack water and a treat. And, permit the full time to oneself to walk back-up.

Where you can view the sundown: Uh, anyplace? However in all importance, attempt Yavapai Stage. It features an amazing breathtaking view which includes Bright Canyon and the Co Water. Burnt-orange wills progressively change whilst the atmosphere draws flame that is huge. Kick-back, relax, appreciate.

Where you can capture the dawn: when there is something you need to do before you depart, it’s view sunlight increase within the tired canyon walls. Bunch camera, a quilt, and warm tea or espresso and check out Mather Stage. It might be hectic with respect to the season but, I assure other interruptions will begin to fall off whilst the atmosphere increases.

That Which Learn is didn’ted by You About Sites and Machu Picchu

Into  the must see locations of Peru, get an expert look from historic damages to historical towns.  

Of all of the nations in South Usa, Peru hosts the biggest assortment of historic damages, with a few of the world’s many magnificent historical sites, including Machu Picchu, (among the Seven Wonders of the Planet), spread throughout its Sacred Area. The remains left by these cultures that are intriguing really are a testament towards engineering and the sophisticated thinking which was used below. On our current FP Escapes escape to Peru, we were luckily enough to discover these holy sites with this buddies at Yogascapes and yogini Ashleigh Sergent.

We started our trip in Cusco -difficult 11,000 legs above sea-level at an air. Constructed nbsp from the 9th&;King of the Incas, the town to become formed just like a Puma was created by Pachacutec. The Puma, along with the Snake and also the Condor, are extremely respected and proceed to remain nowadays whilst the 3 many holy creatures in Peruvian tradition. The top of Puma lies at Sacsaywaman using the city-center creating your pet body. Laying about the city’s upper borders, researchers for a long time have confused. The extremely big rocks which were used-to build the website are cut to fit without mortar, showing an accuracy of installing that’s unparalleled within the Americas. What’s much more astounding is the fact that placement and the perspectives of the rocks are thought to match large alignments.

Through the ability of excellent declaration of moon and sunlight, the Incas were able transform the substantial values into ideals, that have been subsequently integrated to their structure and to forecast the positioning of eclipses. This method was utilized not just at numerous historic sites, but additionally at Saksaywaman throughout Peru.

One of Incan city planning’s greatest types may be Ollantaytambo’s enchanting town. House the city, to 2 massive ruins continues to be constantly inhabited because the 13th millennium. With a few blocks weighing more than 50 loads, Ollanta’s mysterious stonework was positioned with mind boggling accuracy; you cant actually slip just one bit of document between two rocks! Professionals declare that, despite  nbsp the absolute most present&;engineering accessible, these amazing websites could not recreate with accuracy and the ability utilized by the historic magicians who constructed Ollantaytambo.

Undoubtedly the absolute most renowned historic website South America in all, Machu Picchu may be any trip to Peru’s pinnacle. Built-in the 15th millennium on the hilly form higher above the River, Machu Picchu nbsp & s room; one of the clouds gives its guests a sense of transcendence. Once the American Hiram Bingham discovered it inhabited for merely a century before being forgotten throughout the Spanish cure, the town stayed a solution until 1911. Since the Inca had no published vocabulary, there’s no report as to it had been utilized or why they constructed the website. With 700- rsquo & plus balconies, the website;s executive mixes that are wonderful naturally in to the rock cliffs that it’s constructed on. Located in the centre of the community of attractions and associated websites, Machu Picchu& rsquo of houses, plazas and palaces seem to arrange with substantial activities.

The Kingdom vanished nearly as rapidly because these holy sites were constructed by them. With this type of advanced knowledge of the cosmos, one is left questioning had they existed for another a century what common strategies they may have revealed.
