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…

Emirates Business.

Let’s talk airlines. Emirates. I’ve had this idea in my head that flying Emirates Business would be the travel equivalent of winning the lottery… or perhaps it was just that it would take winning the lottery to afford to fly Emirates Business. Until I got the calling email. The golden-ray-of-sunshine email from Emirates offering to…

Canaves Oia Suites.

Sometimes luck happens. I research a lot for our travel. I mean A LOT. I have a semi-allegiance to specific hotel chains, but they certainly don’t dictate how I do things. And sometimes, even with all the research, we end up with resort envy. Thanks to friends, we knew Oia was THE place to be…

I’ve never quite found myself speechless in regards to the beauty of a destination.

Just a couple Friday afternoon pictures from our Santorini trip. Have a great weekend and check in next week for more pics from our Greek Holiday!

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

chicago.

So far, I have a love/hate relationship with this town. Hate= Snow and frigid temperatures that humans shouldn’t necessarily live in. Love= Everything else. You may remember a while back, Chelsea did a guest post on her trip to Chicago (catch up on that post here). I was elated to go to such a beautiful…

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…

Just a few quickie pics this afternoon from our Costa Rica vacation. We ventured out to a new location this Memorial Day weekend in hopes of finding some much needed R+R– and we definitely found it. More pictures to come, so come back soon. Hotel: Westin Playa Conchal Airline: United (as if you didn’t know…
