SI Swimsuit Rookie Sixtine Shares Key Summer Travel Advice That Might Surprise You

The body neutrality TikToker spent three weeks in Italy last year.


Sixtine is an expert on how to properly execute a European summer vacation, and her biggest takeaway is don’t do too much.

The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie shared some valuable advice in a recent TikTok. She created a stitch of another user’s relatable video that read, “when you try to see so much of Europe that this is how you spend half your trip,” atop video clips of women packing, using multiple transportation methods, unpacking and lugging their suitcases around.

The body neutrality influencer then appeared on the screen to share her thoughts and admitted that she also fell victim to the “see as much as you can” mentality.



“If there is one thing I regret from my Italy trip last year, it’s that I did too much,” she explained. “I feel like I spent half my time packing and unpacking and repacking and being on trains and being on flights, and I just didn’t get enough time in the places I really enjoyed.”

The model, who was photographed by Yu Tsai in Dominica for this year’s SI Swimsuit magazine, spent three weeks in Italy last summer. She began her trip in Milan and then went to Lake Como, Venice, Rome, Sorrento, Capri and Naples.

“So if you’re taking a Europe trip this summer, go easy,” she encouraged her followers. “I promise you will enjoy seeing less and spending more time there than hopping all over the place trying to cram it all in.”
