travel tip: purchasing miles.

I’m a frequent flier miles whore. I admit it. Although, not as much as some of my friends– Justin and Xenia, I’m talking to you. So I thought I’d share a little tip. I received an email from United this morning about their award miles being on sale during the next two days for 40% off. Seeing…

food, food, glorious food.

When travelers hear “cruise ship” they automatically think: buffet. I know I always have. Our ship’s cuisine was so different than your run of the mill cruise food. Yes, PG does have a buffet. No, it’s not one of those stereotypical crusty meatloaf kind of events. So last year, we were pleasantly surprised to find…

it’s b’s wedding!

Tomorrow is wedding day! I cannot believe it’s finally here. My sweet friend Brittany is getting married tomorrow to a wonderful man– someone who makes her happier than I have ever seen her. Brittany and I go way back– we were on dance team and then cheerleading together in middle school– back in the days when…

i am NOT a crier.

So you can imagine my shock last year when we left the Paul Gauguin and I was sobbing like a toddler who didn’t get candy at the check-out counter. At the time, I attributed this sentimental breakdown as too much Sauvignon Blanc at the farewell lunch. I quietly hid behind my Jackie-O shades blubbering, while…

I haven’t yet composed my thoughts. Where do you even begin to tell about such an incredible trip? They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I guess I’ll start with that… Here are some more images from Bora Bora, Fakarava, Rangiroa and Huahine. I’ll post part 2 on Monday with our pictures…

tahitian sneak peek.

D and I are finally home from our beloved Tahiti. And while I did come back relaxed and a nice shade of bronze, I also came back sick. I’m pretty sure spending 18 hours of travel time behind the “iron curtain” (i.e. first class), has something to do with my incessant hacking. I may have Moorea’s…

a heavenly friday.

Thanks to Patrick’s Tour and an influx of Maitai’s, I’ve had a heavenly Friday! Hope yours has been great too!

mañana.

I’m giddy with excitement– seriously, I’m bordering on 6 year old the night before Christmas kind of excitement. My co-workers ask me when I leave and I have to stiffle a shrill of elation. Finally, after planning, and booking, and paying and day-dreaming, our Tahitian vacation is here. Mañana. Tomorrow.  If you are unfamiliar with my…
