San Juan, Puerto Rico

Schedule random days off of work even if you don’t have anything planned yet! In August I requested a few days off for a long weekend; I wasn’t sure if I would use them or cancel it; but I just wanted them just in case. Then about 3 weeks before those days I found a…

Interact with the locals

Get connected! It’s one thing to go visit different countries and cities abroad but it’s another to get insight and see how the locals live and hear some of their stories. When I go on my trips, especially abroad I definitely look forward to interacting with the locals. I like to hear about their lives…

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Weekend Getaway! The Made in America music festival was a great way to end the summer and kick off the fall. It takes place Labor Day weekend in the city of Brotherly Love-Philadelphia. My friend and I actually made this a four-day weekend. We drove down to Philadelphia early Friday afternoon; it was only about…

Abu Dhabi & Dubai, U.A.E

This was a steal of a lifetime! Deals like this don’t come around all too often or ever. I paid less than $260 round trip to Abu Dhabi, UAE on Etihad Airways. This trip was booked way in advance and gave us a lot of time to research before actually going. Now, I’m going to…

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The first time that I went to Mexico was in 2011 and it was through Carnival Cruises. We stopped in Cozumel, Mexico and I was so in love with the land, culture, food and…

Charlotte, North Carolina

The Experience! So this was a last minute trip, but also my first trip to kick off the 2015. One of my high school best friends had been telling me about CIAA weekend in Charlotte for a few years, and this was the year that I could finally make it. I found a great deal…

Work Wanderlust Balance

Let’s be realistic, not everyone can just quit their jobs or end their current careers to become a full time traveler. Yes, there are people out there that have done it; but more have tried and failed than those that have tried and succeeded. As much as I love to travel, and wish that I…
