Our stay in Aruba was hosted by Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort. Opinions are based on my stay. Tropical. Warm. Lush. Tranquil Beaches. Illuminating sunsets.
I’ll be starting today’s post off differently because everyone is so curious about the rebuild of Saint Martin. To be open, honest, and fair, the Dutch Side has come along FAR better and faster than the French Side.
Aruba is more than just a pretty beach destination. How do we know? We seek out at least ONE adventure per trip and this trip included an Aruban outback adventure we will NEVER forget.
The sand, beach umbrellas, and sprays of water misting you in your beach chair. Buckets of sand being moved about, a kayak swaying back and forth in the water with 2 little kids sitting in it.
Vacations are much needed, especially in the current here and now. In fact, if you find the right mix of beach rental and beach community, you might just have the time of your life.
Discovering Corolla by Biking. It’s the best way to roll, when you are in the Outer Banks, visiting Currituck County. In fact, renting bikes in the Outer Banks just makes good sense, because you can see and experience so much!
Jockey Ridge State Park, is where I had the Outer Banks Hang Gliding experience I’ll never forget. Yes, I took flight, and I HATE heights, but I did it.
How do you like to vacation? Relaxed, adventurous, family, and friend-filled? Maybe a mix of both!
It’s no secret that I love Instagram. Truly Instagram is my best friend when I travel, allowing me to share food, and adventure as I go. My most recent trip as I scooted through parts of Pennsylvania was definitely Instagram-worthy. Our current trip from Altoona To State College or State College to Altoona offered a […]
When you can go on a vacation that is not too far from home but once there you feel like you are a million miles from home, you know that destination was the right choice. My teens and I got away this summer, but we ventured less than 5 hours from Pittsburgh! While I am […]
For those of you who really love adventure like I do and really love adrenaline adventure, the Royal Gorge Bridge is your destination. I’m an adventure-seeking destination teen, who travels with food allergies. My biggest challenge is to find both a way to have fun and eat in one destination and I did!
How does the old saying go? The best-laid plans of mice and men don’t always work? Traveling can be tiring and preparedness is a must.
As a little girl, we would go to our airport to watch the planes take off and land. You see, my Dad was always on one. Now as a travel writer, I am always on the plane and at the airport. However, rarely do I watch a plane take off.
There’s nothing like a lovely meal to keep a vacation going strong. Whether you are strolling along the boardwalk and decided to grab lunch or dinner in Rehoboth Beach or are in the Lewes area, food abounds.
The Derry Walls are an important place to visit in Ireland if you love history. Much like the Cliffs of Moher, the Derry Walls have a lot of history behind them and some of the best Instagram photo ops to be found in the country. Although it seems insignificant, being able to visit Derry is […]
I hate the snow. Sure it is great if you love to ski, but it gets old fast. The cold bites at my fingertips, and at my ears, it’s awful. Slushiness of the snow gets on my nerves and the bright white is not easy on the eyes either.
Our meal was hosted by Windows on Aruba. Thank you for the exceptional cuisine and views! ~ Dana XO Two very steadfast parts of any day, morning and night. Vacation seems to be when most of us step back and appreciate each of these.
Welcome to Texas, where those famed words reign true from food to fun: ‘Everything is Bigger In Texas!’ I discovered a steakhouse and ranch experience near El Paso where the food is big and the destination is bigger! Come hungry, leave with a food baby, lol!
I may receive a commission if you purchase something mentioned in this post. See more details here. Time has traveled fast and I can’t believe it was time to Law School shop for my daughter. More than a few of her university choices are in Columbus, so we created a Mom-Daughter getaway while we shop […]
My Trip was sponsored. Opinions are all my own! About 4 hours from our New York designated flight, an island that has rebuilt after hurricane devastation awaits our arrival. St. Maarten. As a non-ostentatious gal, who loves upscale resorts, I am hoping that this is the right choice.
Are you seeking a destination that’s warm, tropical and sunny? Do you prefer destinations that are authentic yet offer a resort surrounding?
Travel plays on my emotions when it’s a great trip. My adventure to St. Maarten was extraordinary. We are about to visit the most amazing and fabulous bird sanctuary in St. Maarten. In fact, it is a star attraction here, but not because of the birds, rather the owner. It was not just the beautiful […]
I may receive a commission if you purchase something mentioned in this post. See more details here. Who else has Finland on their ‘I gotta go List?’ You are not alone. That 8 hour and 45-minute trek from New York is more like a New York minute when in the air! I know that I […]
Sun. Water. Beautifully groomed beaches, with ankle to shoulder-deep water as far as the eye can see. Which St. Maarten beach location are you at? Actually, the beach in St. Maarten that many a cruise-ship goer enjoys alongside the patrons of the hotel is on the secluded peninsula of Divi Little Bay Beach Resort.
