Destinations

  • I’m a bit of an expert on this topic. St. Augustine is where I live. My backyard. My home base. My playground. And I hang out with my friends and other couples here every week. The city is full of history, amazing food, great craft cocktails, quaint hotels and an overall charm that makes it the perfect getaway for a group of friends traveling together. Here are the fun things to do in St Augustine…

  • Hopefully you’ve read my article on planning a South African safari, so now I want to tell you about the best South African safari lodge, Arathusa Safari Lodge. My brother and SIL had stayed at the lodge a few years ago so why reinvent perfection? I’m a bit OCD when it comes to trip planning, and especially about where I’ll be staying.

That’s actually a bit misleading. I LOVE everywhere I go. Because I love to travel and I find something interesting or memorable in every destination. Even the bad experiences, of which there…

  • I like to say, “I may not be a Millennial, but I sure like to travel like one!” My husband and I spent a few days in Puerto Vallarta on an empty nest adventure. Unlike the touristy locales of Cancun and Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta felt real. Authentic. Unspoiled. PV is after all, Mexico’s oldest town not built as a resort destination. And it’s the perfect place to experience a little midlife adventure! There are plenty…
