24 Hours in Banff

Banff is such a dream! The first time I saw pictures of the bright blue lakes, the mountains, and the cute little town, Banff went on my bucket list right then and there.  And high up on the Bucket List too. We had planned an epic West Coast road trip from the border of Mexico to the border of Canada, and figured this was the best time to head to Banff.  

We were in Banff the first week of October, and it was just a few days too late to go visit Lake Moraine. So, be sure to go a little earlier in the season before they close it. 

Things to Do in Big Bear Ca in Summer and Winter

Big Bear holds such a special place in my heart. It’s where we use to go to summer camps, where we would vacation as a family, and where you would head if you want some good snowboarding and skiing in the winters here in Southern California. There are so many things to do in Big Bear California in Summer and Winter!

It’s also the place we got to call home for an entire Summer recently and I fell even more in love with this quaint little town. 

Big Bear is mostly known for their winter snowy mountains where you can go ski and snowboard, but there are so many things to do in Big Bear in the Summer too!

I wouldn’t be able to choose which season I think is best in Big Bear because it is beautiful and perfect all year round, and there’s always something to do, no matter the weather.

Honeymoon in Aruba

“Aruba, Jamaica, oooo I wanna take ya!”  This song was in my head our entire trip in Aruba, and there’s good reason why the Beach Boys sing about these beautiful islands.

B and I headed to our honeymoon in the Caribbean and started in Aruba. Aruba is an island off the coast of Venezuela, and is below the hurricane belt in the Caribbean Islands. We went at the end of September, which is considered low season, and one of the hottest times of the year there.

Best Nacogdoches Texas Hotel and Things to Do 

B and I had a fun week checking out East Texas and found the oldest town in Texas…Nacogdoches. And we also got to stay at the best Nacogdoches, Texas hotel… The Fredonia.

Where to stay in Nacogdoches 

The Fredonia Hotel is located just a mile and a half from Stephen F. Austin University, and minutes from other Nacogdoches attractions. 

The Fredonia Hotel is not like your typical hotel. This hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel that has the best interior design, amenities, and dining choices throughout the entire place.

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”. 

Whistler Canada After A Day On The Slopes

High in the rugged heartlands of British Columbia, you’ll find Canada’s ultimate winter wonderland – Whistler. 

Famous the world over for its dramatic landscapes and enticing slopes, Whistler attracts thousands of skiers and snowboarders from across the globe each year. 

New York, New York- Top Things To Do

“Welcome to New York!….it’s been waiting for you!” The famous T-Swift song plays on our phones as we come up on NYC. I absolutely love New York! Every time I’m there, it’s always an exciting feeling being in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps.
