2017 Hurricane Season–Caribbean Update

Like many of you, I had plans in the Caribbean this fall and like many of you, I am anxiously awaiting new news regarding the post hurricane island situations.  My heart goes out to the people in the midst of the devastation!!!

Barca Fan!!! Will Travel for Soccer!

There is nothing quite like seeing a sporting event live and in person! The magic of the crowds, the noise, the excitement is all-encompassing.  I highly recommend traveling to watch those bucket-list sporting events.  It makes for great cocktail conversation and it adds to future sports experiences.  For example, the Hubs often tells the story of when we saw Barca play Bilbao–how we had primo seats and saw the action up close.  Here is a look back to a blog I wrote of that experience in Barcelona a few years back: My Man is a huge Futbol fan! World Cup,...

Hotel Review – Secrets Silversands

Sometimes you just have to get out of dodge…find a quick flight and get your toes in the sand and a margarita in hand–STAT!  The Man and I recently needed a break from the day-to-day grind…wear nothing but swimsuits all day and have unlimited quantities of tequila and guacamole under a palapa.  Enter Secrets Silversands! This gem on the Riviera Maya was the perfect location for our last minute beach fix.  It’s reasonably near Playa del Carmen and the Cancun Airport.  Secrets Silversands is part of the Secrets brand that I know and love so much!      Not all...
