I want to be loved by you, in Italy preferably, I do!

I want to be loved by you, in Italy preferably, I do! Italy is synonymous with romance. It has been the backdrop for many beloved romance novels and movies including the greatest love story of them all, Romeo and Juliet. The good news is Italy still stands in all its alluring beauty, and eternity can…

Montréal Munching

My trip to Montreal quickly became about food, which is great because Montreal does food well! I’m sure they’re other things to do but in the winter food is comfort, joy and a proclamation of self-love while simultaneously being the beginning of summer body dreading! Let’s eat and be merry now; winter won’t tell your…

Christmas in Québec

Language fails to make available to me a word that can aptly convey my deep fondness towards Christmas. I am the embodiment of the Christmas spirit! Thanks to the dominance of North America in mainstream media I have, along with Bing Crosby been dreaming of a white Christmas. Québec City guarantees the falling of ice…

Bahama Mama

Question 1. If a girl is connecting through Miami to visit Cuba upon returning to Miami where is the next logical stop for a delightful end to her summer travels? The Bahamas! Question 2. What’s the point of going to uni and making friends from different countries if you’re never going to visit them in…

Viva Cuba Libre

Cuba is on the tip of everyone’s tongue so naturally and completely selflessly I had to go have a taste to see what all the talk was about, for you of course! Let’s get right into it, I’m prepared to spill the tea or Mojito or Piña Colada or any of the great big array…

A day in LA

Hoping off the plane at LAX wasn’t as glamorous or even as memorable as expected. It turns out, like men, most airports are created equal. It was really the city beyond, that sparkled! The First thing I noticed besides the traffic were the characteristic palm trees! I thought it was odd but remarkably considerate of…

Vegas, Baby!

How was Las Vegas? Hot. I know it’s a desert and deserts are hot but every time I’m asked that question the feeling of the sweltering heat rushes my memory and all I can muster as an answer is hot. However , once I manage to cool down and thoughts begin to stream again I…

The Blue Carpet Treatment!

A taste of the juiciest apple! There are about three places synonymous with dreams coming true- The North Pole, Never never land and New York City! Luckily Value Vacations along with Jet Blue can make the last trip happen! It’s important to remember the journey to your destination is just as important as what you’ll…

The Simple Things

I’m writing to you from outside. It doesn’t matter from where outside, it just matters that I am outside. It’s a bit drab because it’s been raining but the smell of wet grass is pleasurable. I boast about living where most vacation but the reality is I forget. I don’t want to forget. I like…

Value, Virgin & Vacations

I took to the streets of London this past week. There was never a plan for the day until the day of and I loved it! England has so much to offer, it’s not only a great gateway into other European nations to catch a cheap flight. It’s worth sticking around for a cup of…

This is not a Fairy-tale!

I have been struggling with the realization that I, in actual fact am not a princess. I try to replay those indoctrinating tapes my mother equipped me with as a child- “You’re my little princess!”, “How’s my princess?” blah blah blah! I’ve only ever worn plastic pink tiaras, it’s a far cry from shiny diamonds….

Don’t tell me what to do!

All of a sudden people are not telling me what to do. To my absolute dismay, the domineering atmosphere that is the school system has let me loose to join the rat race for misplaced fame and fortune. The well of advice is running low and I’m only now realizing I’m a thirsty, thirsty girl….
