I visited DC last summer for the first time since I was a kid. It was my birthday weekend, which also happened to be July 4th weekend so it was a great time to visit our nation’s capital. Hellooo fireworks. We didn’t plan too many things but rather improvised most of the trip. With all […]
When I tell my friends I only bring a backpack on most of my trips, they look at me like I’m crazy. Granted, I’m not one to wear a full face of makeup or blow dry my hair every day (or ever, really …) but I’ve seen girls who do successfully backpack it for trips. […]
Travelers are a funny bunch. They often treasure experiences over things and raggedy souvenirs over the latest shiny object. This can make coming up with gift ideas for travelers a little difficult. But one of the items in this post might stick out to you as the perfect gift for the beloved traveler in your […]
Here are three ways you can save on airfare using Google Flights.
Last March, I booked a flight to Costa Rica (my first Central American country) with the intent of attending a yoga and surf retreat. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the retreat was canceled and I was left wondering what to do with a flight to Costa Rica. For the following few months, I was seesawing between […]
So you have a laundry list of destinations you just need to visit, but only have ~2 weeks of vacation time per year to make it happen? Unfortunately, this is the situation in which most of us who are kissed by wanderlust find ourselves. However, that shouldn’t discourage you. There are several ways you can […]
I consider myself a “bad Floridian” sometimes because of all the places I have yet to visit although I’ve lived in Orlando for two decades. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not was on that list of places I hadn’t visited until recently.
I live in Central Florida and the area is a treasure trove of adventure. But although I’ve lived here for a long, long time, I feel that I haven’t been the best at exploring near home. I’m making it my mission to change that. While St. Augustine wasn’t *technically* a new destination for me, I had lots to discover.
To begin Day Two in Munich, I met Rupert of the Munich Tourist Office to make our way to Brienner-Quarter, a historic shopping district that has been around since 1826. To get there, we took the Underground, which was a really short walk away (2 minutes tops) from Schiller5, where I was staying. A video […]
Here begins my attempt to document the wonder that was my recent trip to Bavaria. I would have never thought I could win a trip to Germany via an online contest, but it apparently was in the cards for me. More details on how it happened, *here!* Day one was a reallly long day for […]

For my upcoming (and first-ever) trip to Bavaria a.k.a. the southern region Germany, I wanted to combine some of the cold weather staples I already own with a few new essentials in order to a) look sort of fashionable; b) not freeze my behind; and c) avoid splurging on clothing I would likely never use […]
Being short on vacation time at work doesn’t have to mean you can’t get away every once in a while! Living in Orlando – the most-visited destination in the US – we don’t have to go far to experience something new and incredible. Just think about it … we live where everyone dreams about vacationing. Why not take advantage of it by planning the best staycation in Orlando?
