My First Airbnb Experience

I am not always the first onboard with change. When traveling I found myself in a routine of researching the closest Sheraton or Marriott locations, simply out of habit. The free night stays you receive from collecting so many points always made it difficult to try something different. Who doesn’t like free? However, I wanted […]

Blooming Lotus

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36 (KJV) Falling in love with the book Eat, Pray, Love written by Elizabeth Gilbert and a basic love for yoga led me over to Google in search of Balinese yoga retreats. Blooming Lotus had […]

Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge

My experience in Belize was far better than I could have ever expected and I owe that to Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge. I went to Belize to live out my personal definition of a vacation, which is making time for nothing except R & R (Rest and Relaxation). The way I visualized my trip I […]

Reykjavik Lights Hotel

If you can imagine spending a night in the best Ikea you can imagine an experience at the Reykjavik Lights Hotel. This centrally located hotel is modern and unique in the best ways. Everything from the continental breakfast area to the setup of the guest rooms are strategically arranged with comfort in mind. I think […]

DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Zanzibar – Nungwi

A canopy on the bed set for a queen, a beach overlooking the Indian Ocean, and Tanzanian culture busting out the seams. I can’t think of another place I would have preferred to be in that moment or a place in Zanzibar that could have offered a better experience. Great weather, great food, and the […]

Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel

If you’re in Amsterdam and looking for convenience in a hotel, it doesn’t get more convenient than Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel. You literally pick up your bags from baggage claim, follow the exit signs, head up the escalators out towards the garage, and on the right-hand side in the glass tunnel is the Sheraton’s double […]

Grand Mayan – Mayan Palace

I have a timeshare through RCI that was handed down to me by my parents. Let me start by saying if I didn’t have a timeshare, this is the company I would want to timeshare with. I have stayed at their Riviera Maya resort in Playa del Carmen and their Acapulco resort. They are without […]

Aloft Bangkok Sukhumvit

After two weeks in a volunteer house with 20 international volunteers, Aloft Bangkok Sukhumvit offered me the perfect day of relaxation, before heading back to the United States. Hot shower, room service and a moment to regroup before the 20-hour flight. I only needed the room for about 7 or 8 hours. Aloft Bangkok is […]

The Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa

Paradise is the only word that comes to mind. Looking out from your balcony onto the endless pool that flows into a clean body of water, a beach on the premises, and a little monkey that walked on my balcony every morning at 6 am like a wake-up call. The spa in this resort was […]

Four points by Sheraton Downtown Dubai

The staff was extremely friendly and pleasant. The concierge provided great recommendations for tour and dinner options. I wholeheartedly enjoyed my experience in Dubai and I don’t think it would’ve been the same had I stayed at another hotel. The complimentary shuttles to the beach and the mall were very useful. And who can argue […]
