So What’s the Deal with these Base Fare Airlines?!

So What’s the Deal with these Base Fare Airlines?!

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is…right?!  Well, not exactly!  I find myself on an airplane…ALL THE TIME!  And not for business, it’s all personal, so I am left to pay my own way.  If you travel a lot for business, and the company is paying, I would point you away from these discounted flights…BUT, if you are like me, and love to travel, or have to travel a lot…these base fare airlines may just be the perfect thing for you!

Cheap Maldives Holidays

Cheap Maldives Holidays

Cheap and Maldives Holiday doesn’t exactly go together. Or so I thought.
When I first heard of Maldives, I thought “great honeymoon destination, way out of our budget!”   The turquoise waters that are crystal clear and full of sea life looks like something out of a movie. Overwater bungalows that are so romantic but would definitely put a dent in your wallet...maybe Maldives, “one day”.

How to Sleep Better When Traveling

How to Sleep Better When Traveling

Who dislikes traveling? Nobody! We all like exploring new places, literally everyone loves to travel. 

Even those anxious about flights or bus and train trips love to arrive to the new place and see a new culture with enthusiasm! 

I was always like that. I was anxious before my trips, rethinking if everything goes well and a lot more. But I definitely loved packing and dancing along as I fantasized about unpacking when I get to the new place.

Things to do in Helsinki -Helsinki Travel Guide

Looking for Things to do in Helsinki? Well, you've come to the right place!
Oh Helsinki! B and I did an around the world trip from March till May. We started in Lapland Finland and LOVED every day spent there. Since we only had a few months to go around the world, we were on a tight schedule. We flew out of Helsinki but didn’t have time to hang out in the city. So I was way excited when we were invited back to enjoy a week in Helsinki during the midsummer celebration.

Local island Thulusdhoo 

Local island Thulusdhoo 

There are 2 types of islands you can visit when in Maldives. One is a Resort Island, and is probably the most known of the two... but, there's another island you can visit that will make your stay much cheaper.  Since about 10 years ago, the Maldivian government has allowed local islands to have guest houses so tourists can come to stay there, so that now gives us a budget friendly option for staying in Maldives.

Hotel Inari Lapland, Finland

Our bucket list Lapland trip wasn't quite complete without a stop in Inari.  We enjoyed the ice castle in Kemi, the spectacular Auroras at Northern Lights Village, and relaxed at the beautiful Aurora Village, but we still had to experience some of the Finland Culture in Inari.  

The last leg of our trip was at Hotel Inari. We were excited to get there, because it would be the furthest North we were traveling to, so we were looking forward to an awesome Aurora show. And it did not disappoint.

Kemi, the hidden gem in Lapland, Finland

Kemi, the hidden gem in Lapland, Finland

We finally had some time off to take an awesome trip together, so B and I were talking about different trips we could take, and where we wanted to go.  He threw out Finland, and I ran with it.  We had seen the Northern Lights in Iceland about a year and a half before, but if you remember, those were the boring lights.  We still wanted to see the magical green lights dancing in the sky.  We had a small taste on our flight over to Iceland, but it just made me want to see them even more.  So, we started planning our trip to Finland, and quickly decided we would spend our time in beautiful Lapland.

Reliving Your Best Memories with GoPro and QuikStories

"Pictures or it never happened!"  

We have been long time fans of GoPro...even from the early days.  Now, GoPro is even cooler than ever, and with the new APP QuikStories, we're enjoying our memories with just a touch of a button. 

My GoPro has been with me through so much.  Shark Cage Diving, Bungee Jumping, Snowboarding, Fishing...it's been all across the states, in New Zealand, Australia, Haiti, and Iceland.  I've had it for years, and it has never failed me.  It is so awesome to have all these pictures and videos of my favorite memories, when usually I wouldn't have much proof of it before.  After all the love my GoPro has given me, it was time to upgrade to another one...but only because of the awesome new features they keep coming out with.
