Is last minute travel a good deal?


I’ve always been of the opinion that the best deals you’re going to get are when you actually do the leg work. Piecing together a vacation yourself allows you to find cheaper deals than if you were to rely on a third-party. Last year when I went to Mexico I called the resort directly and was able to get a savings…

The Good Old U.S of A.


I’ve been thinking a lot about travel, it is a passion after all, but I started to think about all of the places I can visit within the US. So I think I’m going to make it my priority to explore America this year. I’m still headed to Europe in February but after that it’s on to the States. I…

WOD Wednesday: Open Special


Who’s excited? February 23rd is coming fast. It’s only a month away! I have participated in every open since it started. That’s crazy to think about.

It was a great day spent with friends and fraught with mishaps, but fun none the less. We started out at 9:30am. I was hoping to be done by around 1pm so that I could have the…

Rainy Day Weekends


So earlier I wrote about what you can do if you’re snowed in. It’s raining today in Vegas, a rarity for sure. Coupled with that it’s chilly and I want to do is sit on my couch wrapped in a blanket, watch movies and eat popcorn. Instead I’ll start a project. Here are some rainy day activities you can do,…

Where To Go for First Time Solo Travelers.


This is a topic with many different opinions. With the world becoming increasingly smaller and much of the world speaking English it’s not as scary to venture into a foreign speaking country anymore. I love traveling to new places where I might not know the language so that I can experience something all together new. Experiencing new things is a…

How to make the most of a Snow Day.


Oh SNOW! I left you because you’re so cold and wet and heavy. Ever felt like you were constantly digging out your car? If you live in a city of any size and don’t have garage parking you’re digging. I currently live in Las Vegas but last year I was living in Upstate New York. I love New York. I…
