Digital Nomad // Seeker's Social Media Manager. Hello, fine folks! I'm Sarah from the USA. My travels have taken me to six continents (hoping to get to Antarctica one of these days). When I'm not traveling, you can probably find me cooking something inventive, researching my next destination, or riding a motorcycle.

Sarah Lempa's Lists

  • Places I've been
  • Places I Follow
  • i'd go here on my (eventual) honeymoon I have no idea who I'll be getting married to but I sure as hell can imagine where I'll be traveling to afterwards.
  • And then I said, I guess I'll go to Egypt! I feel like every kid dreams of seeing the pyramids. At 24 years old, I am still that kid... who now has friends to visit in Egypt.
  • Paris during the winter is a bonafide winter wonderland Okay, I certainly have nothing bad to say about Paris in the summer, but I had the chance to spend Christmas in Paris with my family back when I was a teenager and it was unbelievably dreamy. Between the illuminated Champs-Elysees and cozy little restaurants, this city is incredible under a blanket of snow. #SeekerChallenge
  • Dream places to visit before I kick the bucket Northern Lights! Cape Town vineyards! Sunrise safaris in the middle of nowhere somewhere in Tanzania! This list is constantly evolving, growing, and going crazy up in my brain all the time — seeing as I'm always discovering new places that seize my attention (and travel budget). These are a handful of places I haven't made it to yet but they're seriously on my radar for the future... Let's gooo! #seekerchallenge
  • How to experience Minneapolis like a local There's so much to love about Minneapolis — and even though I technically don't live there anymore — I definitely have plans to return for a visit. Hell, my storage unit is going to need me at some point... Anyway! Between a ton of lakes, cozy cocktail bars, and trendy eateries, there are so many off-radar places in Minneapolis that you wouldn't discover on a first visit. These are just a few of my (many) favorite places. #seekerchallenge
  • French Polynesia favorites (and a few for next time) I went to French Polynesia in 2019 and split my time between Tahiti and Mo'orea. Needless to say I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the beauty and culture (and also one of the only people traveling solo, lol). This list has the best places I visited between Tahiti & Mo'orea and also a few other islands I heard about from other folks. I'm so down to go back, maybe with a husband next time.
  • Places I wanna go in Indonesia (outside of Bali) I live in Bali, and honestly, it's pretty hard to leave the island when things are as good as they are here. There's a ton to see around Indonesia though and I'm eager to plan some more "out there" trips.
  • Best places to visit in the lovely state of New Mexico I lived in New Mexico for 2 years when I was a kid. It’s a weird place, and I say that with a completely endearing tone. The nature is unreal for starters, and then you get authentic Mexican food and tons of art galleries and well, to this day I’m sold. Cheers to the American Southwest!!
  • Best places to check out around Canggu Canggu is popular among expats, surfers, digital nomads, yogis, and beach-seeking vacationers. It's a super fun area of Bali where foreigners and locals alike enjoy the vibrant energy — and you'll probably end up staying longer than you expected. Hell, I was supposed to come here for one month and it has been ten. These are a few places you should definitely check out if you're in town!
  • Bali: Best beaches around the island I've been living here for almost 10 months (!!) which is crazy to me — and I've had a lot of time to explore the various beaches that this island is so well-known for. My favorites are definitely down in Uluwatu, but there are plenty of unique finds across the island. It just depends what you're into. Between water sports, lounging, day cocktails, or marine life — there's plenty of options for every preference.
  • Bali: Best waterfalls around the island Once you head up north to the mountainous region of Bali — prep yourself to chase tons of waterfalls because this area is full of 'em!!
  • Minneapolis: Best cocktail bars in town Speakeasy lounges and bustling basement bars are just the start of Minneapolis' underrated (and incredible) cocktail scene. These are my faves, and they might be spendy, but you'll regret nothing once you see and taste the drinks these bartenders are slinging. Much love to my service industry family in MPLS!
  • Indonesia: Mountain hike bucket list I've gotten to climb a few of these, others are on my bucket list for the near future.
  • Melbourne: Best weekend getaways Melbourne can be a bit hectic (although you'll never be bored). My favorite part about living in Melbourne was the nearby nature—these places will keep me returning for years to come.
  • Minneapolis: Best spots for a picnic Minneapolis might be a fairly large city, but it's oh-so easy to find green spaces to enjoy some leisure time (and a cheese plate or ten).
  • Paris: Best green spaces to hang out at Paris is pretty hectic and sprawling, but surprisingly, there are so many chill spots to read a book or have a picnic in the grass.
  • French Polynesia: Ridiculously dreamy places to visit It's not just for honeymooners, folks.
  • Paris: Best cafés and restaurants for atmosphere I'm a sucker for the occasional fancy restaurant (especially when it has a view of the Eiffel Tower...ehm) but this list incorporates a wide range of places—not just the fancy ones. They're each special to me in their own way!
  • Copenhagen: Best places to have a picnic Copenhagen's weather may be tricky, but I absolutely love going to the grocery store (Netto or equivalent) and getting some snacks to eat outdoors. I frequented these places so much when I lived there!
  • Peru: Most stunning sights across the country Mountains, deserts, cities, jungles -- Peru has every type of landscape and I actually couldn't believe the diversity when I was there?! You have to see them all seriously
  • Marrakech: must see spots I spent 2 weeks in and around Marrakech in 2019. Between the bustling souks and the incredible architecture, the entire city feels like a museum.
  • Vietnam: Motorbike trip stopping points from North to South In 2018, I rode a motorbike from Hanoi to Saigon. Long story short, it was f%*$ng awesome, and I'd do it all over again. These are the places I stopped, plus a few more I wish I could have made it to.
  • Amsterdam: must see spots Parks, museums, cafés, historical spots — Amsterdam feels like a second home to me after visiting several times over the years. I love it :) A lot of these are the classes must see's, but I threw in a few of my lesser known faves too.
  • Ho Chi Minh City: must see spots I spent about 3 weeks in Ho Chi Minh City (or Saigon as some call it) after a massive motorbike trip down the entire country.
  • Bali: Must-see temples around the island TBD
