Switzerland in the Summer

I thought Switzerland was the place where only middle-aged Caucasian folk spent their winters at expensive ski-resorts drinking rich hot chocolate by the romantic wood-burning fireplace. What could this land-locked destination even have to offer me? Beauty. It’s beauty is stunning! The flight from London Heathrow with Swiss Air was short just about two hours…

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…

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…

Movie Inspired Vacations!

When I’m not traveling because school has grounded me I love to watch movies that feature all the great scenery I’ve been missing out on. It’s a great way to cultivate your day-dreaming skills which in no way helps with your everyday responsibilities, so that’s always good. Luckily, fostering dreams is what I’m all about!…

“Magical Realism”

In the Summer of 2016 I took my first visit to Colombia! I word it like this because I know, that I know, that I know and I hope by NOW that you know it will not be my last! South America is close to the Caribbean and for some strange, what I can only…

The Caribbean by Sea

The islands of the Caribbean would leave anyone spoilt for choice. The Carnival Fascination cruise ship allowed me a taste of a few of these Caribbean islands this past week. We started in Barbados then visited the islands of St.Lucia, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico and St. Thomas USVI. I always knew I loved…
