Barbados: on video!

It’s been a while since I took a solo trip–especially to a super romantic island! Even though I would have loved to visit Barbados with David, there was still PLENTY to enjoy on my own: I basically read Gone with the Wind in the sunshine the entire time, took long walks on the beach while listening to […]

The best beaches in Aruba

The name Aruba is practically synonymous with tropical paradise, and nowhere is that more evident than in its beaches. The water is crystal-clear, the sand is white and oh-so-soft, there are swaying palm trees and sea turtles swimming. Seriously.

The best of Aruba

Aruba! What a magical place.

A weekend in San Juan

In things that I am continually trying to master (although I think I’m getting darn close): the weekend getaway! Although I love a proper vacation in a brilliantly exotic location more than anyone, I believe so strongly that you don’t have to go that far or that long to reap the benefits of travel. Because […]

Postcard from Elbow Beach

If nothing else, I think we can all safely agree that Bermuda is known for its beaches. The word is practically synonymous with island paradise! I give a lot of credit to the Beach Boys, but even Mark Twain once said: “You go to heaven if you want–I’d rather stay here in Bermuda.” And largely that heaven on […]
