Travel Diary: Terranea Resort, by Destination Hotels ~ Part 1

Travel Diary

I left San Francisco and headed to Southern California for my hotel and spa adventures with Destination Hotels. On this hotel and spa tour I was by myself. I like highway driving and needed time to reflect, relax, and get some really good sleep. I find it interesting when people ask me why I travel by [...]

IMG_6030

On Day 2 of our #takeanapa tour we spent the day at the Francis Ford Coppola Winery. The winery is located about 45 minutes from Calistoga in Geyserville and was a very pretty drive  on rolling hills. We passed vineyards on both sides of the highway. It was beautiful and green. The winery is a [...]

Travel Series: How I Carry-On? with Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon

How I Carry-On Prototype

How I Carry-On? is a travel series devoted to travel style. As a traveler, I am curious about my fellow travelers’ routines, what they pack, and how they live their lives always en route. My travel motto if the trip is under 10 days – carry-on only. This usually works 95% of the time. It [...]

Travel Wish List: Hotel Lone – Rovinj, Croatia

Hotel Lone

I’m headed on a Mediterranean Cruise next year and I’m already plotting and planning my adventure.

Wheels Down: Lexus RX 450h SUV

Lexus 450

This review is definitely for the car junkies in my life. I’m normally all about everything 30,000 and above. Sometimes, I have to stay on the ground. I love highway driving. I am a woman who loves the open road. I’m still dreaming of driving cross country with an iPod full of music and This [...]

Travel Diary: Calistoga & Napa Valley, California ~ Day 1

Calistoga Travel Diary

It’s no secret that I’m itching to move to California. I love DC, but this girl is ready to live in the land of wine, beach, earthquakes, and yoga. I decided last year that I wanted to spend more time exploring various parts of the U.S. A lot of time travelers believe we have to [...]

Travel Diary: Devon Valley Hotel in Cape Winelands, South Africa

Devon Valley

I traveled to Cape Winelands in 2010 before heading to the World Cup in other parts of South Africa. It was one of those bucket list trips, but I never posted the photos or wrote what made it so memorable. Growing up in Houston I always knew that my life would be very different than [...]

Marriott-Palm_Springs-FINAL-updated-Web

I’m headed to California on Friday for a race and to cover a few hotels and spas, but I’m really bummed now that I am not making it to Palm Springs to cover their spas. I need to plan a trip back to California to experience all of the Palm Springs Marriott properties spas. It [...]

Travel Wish List: Frenchman’s Reef Beach Resort & COOLA Suncare Collaboration

Frenchman Reef Bar

As we anticipate a drop in temperatures tomorrow after this gorgeous day today it has occurred to me. I’m really over all this: vortex, puffy coats, tights, and gloves. I’m ready for the beach. One of my favorite sunscreen brands COOLA Suncare has partnered with a hotel on my never ending travel wish list – [...]

Travel Diary: Colony Club in Barbados

Colony Club 1

A few years ago I stayed at COLONY CLUB in Barbados. It is a dreamy hotel right on the beach. I’m dreaming of Barbados and think maybe a trip to their Food & Wine & Rum festival may be exactly what I need to get my Bajan fix. Of course, as I went to write [...]
