A Vision for 2020

A year and a half since the last post, and I’m finally feeling the resurgence of energy to start back up with this blog. It’s be a tumultuous couple of years where life took over and I had to put this site on hold, but it was always in the back of my mind, tugging away and reminding me that blogging always held a special place in my heart. With this rebirth, there are a few things that I want…

A Laid Back Mini-Vacation to Savannah, Georgia

For a few days over July 4th week, we decided to spend a few days exploring Charleston and Savannah. We arrived in Savannah at around 4pm and spent two nights at the Andaz Savannah, a very well-located hotel in the heart of the historic district. For many reasons, this trip was meant to be slow-paced and relaxing, so we didn’t want to cram our itineraries until we were sore in the feet. In fact, we stopped by the hotel several…

Checked In: Andaz Savannah

As we arrived in Savannah, Georgia, we checked in to Andaz, a Hyatt branch with a boutique vibe that’s situated right in the heart of the historic district of the city. As soon as we entered the lobby, it was clear they had recently renovated (apparently as of April 9, 2018), and the only word I can muster to describe the decor was hip. The decor was minimalistic and clean, with white walls that created an airy feel and contemporary…

Chicago in Two Days

Changing the tune since my last trip to Los Cabos, I decided to take a quick trip to the bustling city of Chicago, also known as ‘The Windy City’, in Illinois. I went with a friend who also has never been to Chicago so it was fun exploring the city. Below was our itinerary, and hopefully it can help you get an idea of what is possible in 48 hours of being in the city. Day 0: 11pm – Grab…

Secrets Puerto Los Cabos – All-Inclusive, Adults Only Resort

In the past nine months, I’ve been to three different adults-only, all inclusive resorts in Mexico. The first two – Hyatt Zilara in Cancun and Secrets Maroma in Playa Del Carmen – were terrific properties. Needless to say, we were excited to once again relax and on an all-inclusive beach-front property, this time around in Secrets Puerto Los Cabos in Baja California, Mexico. I say the word “relax” loosely because we were actually there for an annual travel agency conference!…

Seize Your Moment

When I was in high school, I had the dream of traveling the world, one country at a time. Funnily enough, at that same time, I barely stepped out of my little town. I didn’t even explore the next town over. I kept making excuses like “oh, I don’t have a car and it takes too much energy to take the bus” or “oh, I don’t have enough money to do x, y, and z” or “oh, I have too…
