Expedia Travel Tip

Expedia Travel Tip

Package deals are the big craze these days. Sometimes I find the package plans to be the best deal, but other times, I find that it is cheaper to book separately. For my last couple of trips, I have booked my flight separately through Expedia. […]

Workcation in the Dallas Area

Workcation in the Dallas Area

As much as I absolutely adore my co-workers, I will be the first to admit that I was not looking forward to spending a week with them training in Dallas. The non-profit sector is so much different than corporate America… We would be carpooling and […]

Se Lo  Llevó la Calaca

Se Lo Llevó la Calaca

I’ve always wondered what the skeleton-looking things were in Mexico, or outside/around Mexican restaurants. They are always so colorful, and have such intricate details. I did some research and found that they are called calacas, and they are actually celebratory statues. Calacas is the Spanish […]

Have Child, Will Travel

Have Child, Will Travel

Most of the travel bloggers I see are single with no children. This can be discouraging to parents (especially single parents) who have been bit by the wanderlust bug…. but it doesn’t have to be***. As a single mother, who loves to travel, I have […]

The Outgoing Introvert

The Outgoing Introvert

The Outgoing Introvert Everyone assumes that I must be extremely extroverted in order to travel alone and meet people. Actually quite the opposite. I am quite introverted, and in my day-to-day life, I prefer to keep to myself. You’ll often find me chilling at home, […]

Houston – A Nature Lover’s Dream

Houston – A Nature Lover’s Dream

I never considered myself a “nature lover” until recently. I’ve found that being outside and experiencing God’s creation first hand is therapeutic. I’m constantly looking for places to visit – other cities, states, countries – but never considered that there was beauty in my backyard. […]

A Day in Antigua – The Land of Sea and Sun

A Day in Antigua – The Land of Sea and Sun

Lovely Place. Just Lovely. We arrived at the cruise port bright and early. Walked through the port area to meet up with our tour guide for the day. We booked a tour with Lawrence of Antigua, and it was worth every penny! Lawrence and his […]

What I Learned from My First Solo Trip – Las Vegas

What I Learned from My First Solo Trip – Las Vegas

I will begin by saying that my first solo trip was NOT intended to be a solo trip. I was super excited to go to Vegas for the first time. It was my 30th birthday celebration. I was packed and ready to go! The person […]
