I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list. ~ Susan Sontag

Italian West Coast Cities

When Franny got an opening in her schedule, we booked an impromptu trip to several Italian West Coast Cities, a week in advance. Best. Decision. Ever. You can easily spend 2-3 days in most of these cities, but one full day was all we could do. I may just retire here after all, Italy has my heart. Day 1: Landed in Naples. Flew Meridinia airline – cheap, not exactly much legroom or personal TV’s like…

St Lawrence Gap Weekend, Barbados

Before starting my new job in March (!) the JetBlue getaways lady on the phone convinced me to do a St Lawrence Gap weekend, Barbados style when I said we craved warmth, no humidity, the perfect beach, and told her our budget. And in style me and girl friend flew for our 4 day, 3 night escape.   We stayed at Time Out Hotel, and while I typically write a lot on the places I stay, it was definitely…

Belize It in 7 days

You can’t Belize how many things we accomplished in 7 days in the country. But Belize It, cause you can do it too. Fun Facts about Belize: Friendliest country I’ve been to. 99% of people were friendly, except the idiots at the airport stores. Very proud and knowledgeable about the Mayan culture and where they come from. Very chill attitude. You better Belize It. It’s Unbelizeable. Makers of Belikin Beer. Though the same in size as U.S….

South Iceland Trip in 8 Days

For nature lovers & nightlife enthusiasts, summer is a great time to make a south Iceland trip in 8 days. At least that’s how long I went for. Six years ago I was forced to travel +50 hours from Venice to get back to London (where I was studying) because a volcano erupted in Iceland that affected air travel throughout Europe. Ironically, that eruption has accounted for Iceland’s boom in tourism. So what will you…

Day Trip to New Jersey for Grounds for Sculpture

This year I planned Mother’s Day, and I chose to do a day trip to New Jersey for Grounds for Sculpture. A day for mom usually involves an event, food, and flowers – I covered all three with the following:  (about four hours) 42 acres worth of fields filled with contemporary outdoor sculptures that continuously change. Since May 2014, the exhibition that has attracted over 145,000 visitors is Seward Johnson’s The Retrospective.  It is officially…

Denver Weekend Activities

Last week, I woke up and thought “What Denver weekend activities should I take part in?” I’ve never asked myself that before, so this was fun- should we go hiking, to a microbrewery, or a museum? Or perhaps a tea tour, shopping, dining, or an outdoor theater? The answer to this question can be determined after asking this: do I want to relax? Experience nature? Learn? Spoil my taste buds? In three full October days,…

One Page Travel Checklist

Is there a one page travel checklist of all the things I could possibly need for my trip? Why yes, I’ve come up with one for you! My friends always call me to tell them what they need to pack for their weekend getaway, travel abroad, or adventure vacation – asking me to verbally list out one item at a time. As a result, I’ve decided to come up with a one page travel checklist…

Costa Rican Expedition: What to Know

A Costa Rican expedition is the perfect opportunity to vacation for those who want to experience adventure, wildlife, volcanoes, rainforests, cloudforests, the beach, and the opportunity to meet both locals and others traveling from near and far. Relative to the countries I’ve been to in Europe, I definitely felt more of a culture shock here. That said, this was one of my favorite places to visit thus far just because of the sheer amount of…

Grand Canyon: Once Upon a Decade

The Grand Canyon has been referred to as one of the seven wonders of the world, so I decided that it would be the first wonder that I would visit in my lifetime.
