Roundup of the 10 Most Viewed Blog Posts in 2016

I’ve decided to reminisce and do a roundup of my most viewed posts of 2016. I’ve come such a long way since I first started this blog, a little over a year ago. I want to thank all my loyal followers who continue to read my posts and support me by clicking on my blog on a regular basis. I appreciate it a lot!

1. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – Abu Dhabi, UAE – I’m not surprised that this is one of the top posts of the year. Although I didn’t go to the UAE last year, it has been probably one of my most memorable experiences. And this mosque was a site to behold!Sheikh Zayed Mosque Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Mosque Abu Dhabi

2. Sunken City – San Pedro California – If you look at the pictures from this post you will know why this is also on top. A city that sank and then turned into a piece of art, right on the Pacific Ocean? Umm…if you visit California, this should be on your list of MUST SEE places!Sunken City San Pedro California Sunken City San Pedro California

3. Waterfall Glen – Darien, IL – Ah, Waterfall Glen, I still remember when I went there for the first time. After weeks of below freezing weather, it was finally 40 degrees and the sun came out. This only meant that I HAD to go out and explore. And I’m so glad I did because this was probably one of the most beautiful wintery things I had seen! (I don’t like the cold.)

4. New York City in 2 Days – Part 1 – Doing New York City in two days was a challenge but because I managed to hit all the popular spots, it made the experience memorable. Not to mention all the amazing food!Brooklyn Bridge NYC View from the Empire State Building Los Tacos No. 1 from Chelsea Market

5. Open House Chicago Series – Part 4 – My love for architecture is the reason this post made it to the top. After learning about Frank Lloyd Wright in design school, I knew I had to check out his home and studio which was featured in Open House Chicago 2016. I got to see it for free and it was awesome!Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio

6. A Road Trip – LA to Chicago Day 1 – Driving across the country is something I had been wanting to do for a long time. I took up that opportunity when I moved to Chicago and I don’t regret it at all. It was an epic trip with awesome friends! Road Trip LA to Chicago - Grand Canyon

7. Laguna Beach, California – This is one of my favorite beaches in Southern California. It’s a mixture of sand, rocks and cliffs which make for the most beautiful pictures. The sunset from here is pretty breathtaking too.Laguna Beach, California

8. Three Dunes Challenge, Indiana Dunes National Park – As a lover of hiking, this probably had to be one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve done recently (ever since moving to Chicago). Mostly because it was done in the fall. 3 Dunes Challenge, Indiana Dunes State park, Indiana 3 Dunes Challenge, Indiana Dunes State park, Indiana

9. Wednesday Wisdom: “You will never be completely at home again…” – A quote that really speaks to me. 

10. FREEbie Friday – Adult Coloring Page & Typographic Print! – I’m so glad that something I introduced just towards the end of the year was popular. It gives me the reassurance that I’m doing something right! 😀 Free Printables!

I hope you will check all these out and continue to support me as I grow and learn more about the blogging world.

I’d love any sort of feedback. Thank you! <3


  1. Nice roundup with all the beautiful places you’ve been to! Looking forward to seeing more of your adventures 😉

  2. What a nice roundup! Your #9 – your wednesday wisdom about ‘You will never be completely home again’ – really hits home. I haven’t seen the post when you posted it but I had to think a lot about it now. I have been living abroad in various countries for some time and the quote is so true to what I am feeling or have been feeling for a while. Thanks for sharing the quote! 🙂
