The Seaside Calls

A place all travelers & foodies can call home.

Hi, I’m Nena! I’m a photographer, traveler, and food enthusiast.

This blog is my little corner of the internet where I share travel guides, yummy recipes, and tips for getting the most out of life.

Travel

I take a unique approach to travel. Yes, I’m all for spending a portion of your time doing the touristy things you’ve seen in movies, but I think it’s even more fulfilling to explore the world beyond, experience the unexpected, and take the roads less traveled. Come with me and together we’ll explore some of the lesser-known sights, the quirky attractions, and the downright bizarre.

As Anthony Bourdain once said, “Nothing unexpected or wonderful is likely to happen if you have an itinerary in Paris filled with the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower.”

(No shade to the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. Definitely don’t skip those!)
