Checking In: Eden Roc Miami Beach Hotel

Checking In: Eden Roc Miami Beach Hotel

A few weeks ago I made my last trip of 2017 by trading one beach community for another. I packed my bags and jet-set from the cliff-lined coast of Southern California for the white sandy beach Eden Roc Miami Beach Hotel. This trip was particularly fantastic because I was with my best friend of God knows how many years. Traveling with friends is amazing, but I digress. The hotel itself is located on Miami Beach which is about a 20-minute ride…

Top 5 Airbnb Experiences in 2018

Experiences. If you’ve followed my travels for any amount of time, it is no secret that I am a lover of two things; Airbnb & travel experiences. I once met a woman who told me her favorite part of travel was never leaving her hotel. Sure, sometimes this can be a much-needed break but I find going out and living, experiencing life when you travel is the good stuff. While traditional hotels are a nice break, there’s nothing I enjoy…

Best Places to Travel in January

Travel in January. Yes, January. Now January is not typically a month where anyone jumps for joy at the idea of traveling but let’s face the facts here; the holidays are exhausting. Our New Year resolution of losing weight hasn’t had a chance to come to fruition just yet, the temperatures are colder than we would like, and we tend to be in a state of grumpiness. So here’s one easy New Year’s resolution: book a trip somewhere uplifting. It…

6 Ways To Make The Most Of This Thanksgiving

6 Ways To Make The Most Of This Thanksgiving

What began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and the preceding year, Thanksgiving has taken a bit of a new direction over the years. Thanksgiving has become commercialized, like most holidays inevitably end up becoming, we all eat far too much (guilty as charged right here), and at some point, football gets added into the equation. Is there anything wrong with this? Not at all! For some families, they put their spin on Thanksgiving entirely….

7 Best Travel Sites

7 Best Travel Sites

Once upon a time, in a land long ago, booking travel was a process involving you and one other person; travel sites were as foreign an idea as electric cars. You would think of where you wanted to go, pick up the phone to the airline or travel agent, and POOF! You were on your way. I can remember as a child anxiously waiting for the mail to arrive when I knew we had requested information to be sent to our…

Going Home Again

Going Home Again

So, did you miss me? I know, I went missing there for a bit. But it is not without good reason; promise. You see I just wrapped up a move back “home.” Not any move but an 8,000+ mile move to home. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about this word home and how its meaning has changed. It’s more of a relative term now than anything else. It has me in a constant state of…

The wow factor

The wow factor

The other night I was out to dinner with some friends, and I found myself completely and utterly distracted the entire time. Usually a pro with eye contact during conversation, I was as distracted as the squirrel in Ice Age chasing the Acorn. No, the people were not boring me to death. I found myself completely enchanted with my surroundings. Strings of lights hung from the dome-shaped ceiling making you feel as though it was going to begin raining diamonds…
