Hotel Review: Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman. Anyone who knows me, knows that direct flights and turquoise water drive my decision making process. So when I realized we could be on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman for the long Easter weekend, there were no other questions asked. I received 2 pre-arrival emails from the concierge team, welcoming D and…

The Maldives.

Every bit as exotic as the name sounds. I’ve been asked a hundred times why I picked this destination and more importantly, where the heck is it? So first, the back story. I LOVE Tahiti. Anyone who has read this blog for even one posting likely realizes this fact. Read about my love affair with…

We booked the Dreamliner to Chicago a few weeks ago for a quick weekend trip to beat the heat in Houston. I know people…

costa rica.

The Westin Playa Conchal. Even the name sounds exotic. As the Westin’s first all-inclusive resort, I didn’t know what to expect when we booked this vacation through United Vacations. I’m always comfortable with SPG properties and knew that this newly renovated resort would likely live up to the rave reviews. And, I can handle anything…
