Destination: Cancun

January seems to be a pretty popular month for friends’ birthdays. I was invited to celebrate a “21st” birthday in Cancun, and as usual, Cancun did not disappoint. The weather was perfect, the beach was beautiful, the blue ocean was crystal clear and the drinks were delicious. When I go on vacations, I tend to drop everything and be out and...

Destination: Philadelphia

Since it is Valentine’s Day, let’s chat about the City of Brotherly Love: Philadelphia. There is SO much history to explore in this fantastic city. It is very easy to get around (I really enjoyed walking most of it) and the food is delicious. I’m surprised it took me as long as it did to make it here. I’ve compiled a...

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for World Traveler’s

Valentine’s Day has always been a fun holiday for me. I always loved putting little goody bags together for my friends at school and decorating everything in pink, red and hearts. I enjoy a day when I can let loved ones around me know how much they are cared for. And hello, it’s an excuse to eat chocolate. Lots and...

Destination: French Polynesia

Little huts on stilts suspended over the ocean, crystal clear water and white sand…. all things that come to mind when I think of French Polynesia. These island oases have so much to offer. I ended up spending some time in Moorea, Papeete and Bora Bora. It was everything I imagined and more. It is more of a relaxing vacation...

Travel App Must Haves

Today’s generation has become very dependent on technology and cell phones. I am guilty of this too. I rely on my phone when it comes to getting directions and planning out what I want to do. See below for a list of apps that I use when traveling. Google Maps North, East, South, West normally mean nothing to me (I’m directionally...

Destination: Sydney, Australia

“The Land Down Under” has been on my top list of places I’ve always wanted to visit. I ended up making it to “Oz” visiting Sydney in April 2016.  The weather was perfect (not too hot and not too cold), the people were friendly and the scenery was beautiful. Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane are still on my list of places to see,...

Destination: The Baltics

I can’t say that The Baltics were on the top of my list of places to visit. My mom had always wanted to visit Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, so we found a great package deal and decided to go. I must admit that it was a little chilly for my liking (we went in October), but it turned out to...

Fashionista Travel Must Have’s

Two of my favorite things: Travel and Fashion. I must admit, I love certain designers, especially when it comes to shoes.  I have put a list together of some designer items that you will always find in my luggage. You can find some of these items cheaper then those listed below, but I have found these brands to be reliable and...

Destination: ICE! at Gaylord Hotels

The winter holiday season is one of my favorite times of year (aside from the weather). I love seeing all the decorations, hearing the music and watching people buy gifts for their loved ones. One of my favorite holiday activities is visiting ICE! at the Gaylord Hotels. It is a fun, indoor family activity that people of all ages enjoy. The...

Destination: Chicago

The Cubs are “Flying the W” for the  2016 World Series, it was home to The Oprah Winfrey Show and it’s known for having one of the biggest fires in United States history.  There is a little something for people of all ages. It has a fantastic public transportation system making it easy to get around and two airports (Chicago...
