Destination: Tokyo

Two other flight attendants and I decided to go to Japan for a few days. We had the most amazing time! We started off by being able to get first class seats on our flights to and from Narita. We explored the country and learned about the Japanese culture. See below for some of my favorite things we did while...

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: Las Vegas

While many travelers spend countless nights in hotel rooms, it would take “288 years for one person to spend one night in every hotel room in Las Vegas” (www.movoto.com). Las Vegas, also known as Sin City, is one of my favorite cities in the United States. Known for its entertainment, casinos, hotels, and nightlife, there is always something to see or...

Destination: Costa Rica

Pura Vida! A friend and I were looking for a fantastic, warm destination to visit when we had a few days off. We ended up in Costa Rica and LOVED it! We spent 3 days there and it was just the right amount of time for what we wanted to see and do. We unfortunately did not have time to visit...

“I kissed an elephant and liked it!”

Would you like to pick up poop or prepare food? Is that sand bag full enough? Have you taken a water break? How many watermelons are left in the truck? Are there any French fries or spring rolls left? All questions asked numerous times during our time spent at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. By our, I...

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: Napa, CA

This city in the heart of California Wine country, makes for the ultimate girls’ weekend. Transportation This is one of the few destinations that I really think requires you to have a rental car or private driver. Having a car to go to the different wineries will make things a lot easier on you, but it is also nice to...

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...
