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…

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…

Favorite Headphones for Traveling

One of the crucial items that Joseph and I like to bring are travel headphones. For Joseph, it helps him keep the screaming kids at bay during a 15 hour flight to Asia or to watch in-flight movies without using the airline’s screeching cheap earbuds. I use it to catch up on some podcasts to make those flights go a little bit faster. So what’s in our lineup? Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones For the heavy-duty noise-cancelling bluetooth headphones, we…

As an adults-only, all-inclusive resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, Secrets Maroma – part of the AMResorts brand – has earned quite the reputation.

Hyatt Zilara in Cancun – an All-Inclusive Resort

It’s been too long since my last travel adventure (to San Antonio and Austin, Texas in April to be exact – yikes!) that I was absolutely over the moon to spend this past Christmas with my fiance, Joseph, in Cancun, Mexico’s Hyatt Zilara, an all-inclusive adults-only resort, for five nights. This was my first time being in an all-inclusive resort, and let me just say, it was pure bliss. We arrived in Cancun around 12:30 am on a Thursday night and…

O’casey’s Boutique Inn

Tucked away in a quaint residential neighborhood is a bed and breakfast called “O’Casey’s Boutique Inn“. I found this cute B&B on AirB&B when my friend Cara was still planning on joining me, and renting a room for two here was just slightly more expensive than going the hostel route for two people (seriously, $7 more). The location was also just 10 minute drive from the San Antonio River Walk. The room is absolutely charming with a slight rustic feel. There…

Sauntering Down San Antonio’s River Walk

I flew out to San Antonio back in April to photograph a wedding and of course, took the opportunity to extend my business trip a few days and explore a little more of Texas. It only makes sense that the first landmark I visit is the famous and beautiful San Antonio River Walk. While I was there, it also happened to be the week that the annual San Antonio’s Fiesta week was occurring – an event that many businesses take part…
