Ok so I have never been to a film festival before so I was really excited that my first one was in Austin at a historic theatre, The Paramount. The first night we attended featured a film called ‘Permanent’ starring Rainn Wilson and Patricia Arquette and it was great! Seriously entertaining. It is a comedy
Well, I just love a big city. And nothing beats the views from the 94th floor inside the Hancock Center. It is the best view, by far, in Chicago. The price tag on this view is a bit expensive. About $22 (including tax) for adults over the age of 12. However, there are coupons all
Let me repeat that for you …. Not All Travel Buddies Are Created Equal. Most of us have what society calls, “social friends.” You can meet up with them periodically for a glass of wine or a happy hour gathering but before you get into that second glass of wine and invite him/her on your next
I love my country. This country, like most Latin countries, the divide between the poor and the wealth is great. But one thing remains common among all the people in Panama; pride for our country. There is so much beauty and love. I was thrilled to spend time with mi abuela and when I asked
I was born in Panama… Going back to visit my Abuela and the country that I spent my childhood in. So much has changed but it felt good to be home. Panamanian Pride where ever you go! I love my country.
My first time in France and I quickly discovered the beauty of carousels. So I took to google to answer my question, why are there so many carousels everywhere in France?! I learned that the carousels were originated in Europe from a game played amongst knights where they would gallop on horses tossing a ball
Eating my vacation away.. . The best part about it, not feeling guilty, at all. . So let’s talk about some of the best places I ate at in Montreal, Canada. I spent 2 hours sitting at the bar of Burger Bar Crescent. First off, I ordered a delicious gin and tonic muddled with cucumber.
We started off the morning with a hearty breakfast at Homeskillet, thanks to my Yelp app. We loved the originality of breakfast at the counter and an open stove. The open stove made for an incredibly hot restaurant serving fresh, homemade breakfast. I went for the Eggs Benedict with tater tots for only $9. Hello, winner! We made my way to
Rainy days in Venezia. Bridges, bridges galore ! The “City of Canals,” just in case you were wondering. It’s illegal to drive in Venice. But don’t worry, you can take a water taxi through and around the entire city! “Gothic” style architecture takes your breath away. As I walked the cobble stone streets, I was
I had made plans. I started getting rid of my furniture and buying big coats. I decided to take the biggest step of my life and move across the country to Washington, D.C. I had secured a job and told all my family and friends that I was leaving. Farewell parties were in the works
Bourges, France is about 2 hours south of Paris by train. The train ride costs approximately 32 Euro each way (coach of course). I walked into a town and immediately fell in love. Not just with the town but with the historic buildings, the people walking hand and hand, all of the luscious green trees
All the green in Portland and beauty of the city makes for Portland a dream destination. We stayed in an AirBnB in the Southeast Neighborhood. The neighborhood was unbelievably adorable and conveniently walkable. Me, being a girl from Arizona, was taken back by all the greenery. I loved seeing the trees, flowers, grass and fresh
There are a few things I have picked up while traveling solo. I have visited a few major cities alone. Never meant to go alone, but sometimes you just have to pack your bags and go! A trip to the big apple was my first solo trip. I had the urging desire to go and
One of my favorite pass times while traveling is to get lost in the city. In Paris, the city that never sleeps, everyone else seemed to enjoy the same pass time. There were so many people walking around, dinning in cafes, playing games in the parks, drinking beer by the river. It was wonderful. I
