Vieques, Puerto Rico

Rome, Italy

Hotel We stayed at the Hotel Bernini Bristol, a 5-star hotel (very affordable!) in a central location close to popular site-seeing spots like the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. The view from our hotel window was spectacular. It looked out on to this center and fountain. The hotel décor was so gorgeous we had to…

Milan, Italy

For someone who loves to travel and travels often, I had the biggest fear of flying overseas. There was just something about flying over water for an extended period of time that scared the shit out of me.  A couple months ago, I decided to suck it up and bought tickets to Italy with my best…

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, Miami

Yes, I am always in Miami. After all, it is my second home. I love museums and I am obsessed with flowers, so what better place to combine the two than at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens? In 1912, the mansion was built by a retired millionaire, James Deering. He also had a love for traveling and named…

A weekend in the Windy City – Chicago, Illinois

Back in November, I met up with my cousin in Chicago to celebrate her 30th birthday. We had such a wonderful time – just the two of us!

We drove out to Clearwater Beach…

Taiwan

I’ll be honest, I don’t know too much about Taiwan. I just have a friend who used to live there, and I’ve contemplated visiting her but never did. Since Taiwan has really tried to bring up their tourism game, I’ve actually started to look into it again. This island doesn’t get enough credit for what…

Destination: Newport, Rhode Island

My best friend and I are always looking for random adventures to go on, so we decided to take a day trip to Newport, Rhode Island. As soon as we got in to Newport we were starving for breakfast but as soon as we got to Benjamin’s Raw Bar, we just missed the breakfast menu by…

Labor Day Weekend – Boston, MA

I’ve lived around Boston basically all my life and some times I forget how much there is to do and see here in Boston for a visitor, so I’m going to do more posts on Boston. I hit up my friend on Sunday night for a good time out in the city. Without a doubt, Cure Nightclub is the…

San Juan, Puerto Rico

I flew to San Juan, Puerto Rico for a destination wedding and stayed at El San Juan Resort & Casino which was where the wedding was held. As soon as I arrived, I hit up the pool, the beach, and Old San Juan. The architecture of the buildings were gorgeous and so colorful and the cobblestone roads gave it…
