3 Places To Visit When Bitten By The Travel Bug


I feel like in my past life, I was bitten by the “wedding bug” or was it a “travel bug”?, that must be the  only explanation for why I’m always super excited for all things wedding and travel. I visited a lounge with my girl squad last weekend and I couldn’t help but have nostalgic  thoughts of Weddings and Travel after taking one look at these Heineken bottles – Heineken is currently taking folks on a trip to Amsterdam, and I really don’t mind travelling again.
