This week it was that time. That time when your passport expires and you have to get a new one. For me this always takes me back to the amazing memories I experienced traveling the world. While signing for a new passport I take one more look at all the stamps and various visa I have in there. I thought it would be fun to share the top 3 memories of trips I did with this passport and to share some pictures of those trips. Click on read more to see them! X

2. India – February 2012
We went to Mumbai and New Delhi for some gigs my boyfriend got booked. It was my first time in India and definitely something I will never ever forget. From the amazing temples we visited, the people we saw to the inspiring culture. Just an amazing experience!

3. Saint Petersburg, Russia – October 2011
I’ve been to Russia and Saint Petersburg a couple of times but the first time I went was in October of 2011. I always wanted to visit the Hermitage Museum and see the amazing city and buildings in Saint Petersburg. Again, a country that is really inspiring but can also give you a bit of a culture shock. I think Saint Petersburg is the prettiest city I’ve ever been to.
