Spending a Day in Miami’s Wynwood Art District

Coming back from our Carnival Cruise to the Bahamas, my sister and I had time to kill before going home so we visited the Wynwood Art District. With her being a photographer and me wanting to visit since Blogalicious weekend, it was the perfect place for us to meet up with my friend who was also in Miami for the weekend.

Stuck in Athens?! My Rookie Travel Mistakes

Last year my cousin and I had the most epic weekend in Athens through a glitch fare we found online. The initial planning was exciting, but the closer it was to our departure date, the more frustrating it became.

10 Romantic Cities Around the World

Press passes to the New York Times Travel Show were given for the purpose of this post. One thing I love about the New York Times Travel Show is it showcases both domestic and international options for solo, family, group and couple’s travel. Valentine’s Day is a few days away and while it’s too late (and expensive) to plan something now, there’s nothing wrong with getting some inspiration for your next...

Essentials For a Long Haul Flight

I experienced my first intercontinental trip this year to Colombia, but the 5-hour flight has nothing on the 10 hours to Greece or 15+ hour flight I’ll be taking to Thailand. There were no issues on the way to Cartagena since I was used to the flight length going to Trinidad, but the red eye to Athens was slightly rough.

Sister’s Weekend at the Verdanza Hotel San Juan

Sister's Weekend at the Verdanza Hotel San Juan

You may recall seeing on Instagram my visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico with my youngest sister for an extended weekend. The last time we went to the Caribbean together was in 2004 so a trip was overdue, plus she needed a break from mom/wife life.
