We happened to take a trip to Austin when it was cold! I know, being from Arizona, 50 degrees doesn’t seem to be that cold. But it is! The weather didn’t stop us from having a good time though! My first recommendation when visiting Austin, go kayaking! We went down the Colorado River and it
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.
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
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
I am the epitome of a girls’ girl. So when I saw the movie ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ starring Julia Roberts, I was inspired to travel solo to Italy! And just like that… I was in Italy. Living out scenes from one of my favorite movies. Walking the streets of Rome, shopping for “bigger pants,” trying
I turned 30 and I have to tell you, I wasn’t ready. All my 30 year old friends kept telling me how great it is to be 30. And all my friends in their 20’s kept telling me, when they turn 30, they’re going to be happy, not sad, like me. Well, here’s to celebrating
The moment I stepped off the plane, everything changed. The land felt new. The smell felt stronger. It was real.. Real leaves change colors. Real life takes place. The first thing I had to do was find a car to take me to Bolling Military Base. Yes, military baby and I am proud. Especially during
Florence, Italy. What is there to say about such a beautiful city. It was my first stop on my first European solo adventure. It took me a couple hours to really take in the astonishing medieval architecture. I only had one day in Florence and I wanted to spend it wandering around, getting lost. I
The city of Rome is one very unique in it’s likeness. You have the history of all the old buildings and architecture that captivates the tourists. But I loved walking the around and seeing all the street art and locals. It’s great to see different cultures in their unfeathered atmosphere. My goal for the day was
My family and I have been going to Porto’s since I was a little girl. This authentic Cuban bakery is a staple in California. Their location in Downy makes close to 10,000 sandwiches a day and houses over 250 employees. My favorite is the Cuban sandwiches. Layers of pork, ham, cheese and pickles. Sounds simple,
I have no been to a lot of cities and here are some of my favorites: Boston: What I loved most about this city is that is was historically preserved but life keeps going, changing, moving so quickly! San Francisco: My favorite part about San Fran is the FOOD and WINE! I know that sounds silly
First off, thank you for all the messages about BOSTON! I had several suggestions and took you guys up on a few of them! Boston is a city filled with so much history. As much as I love learning about American history and everything our country has been through to make it what it
Ok, duh. What is the best part about traveling. . Well the eating of course. All guilt free, because you’re on vacation! Just a few tips when dining in Portland. Make sure to use Yelp! Yes, I said it. Yelp everything. Don’t eat anywhere that has less than 4 stars. Portland is heavily Yelp user city.
