Oregon Plans – Beach and Wine

During my downtime, Steve and I will also be taking a trip together for one week.  We’ll be spending a week in Oregon and I am really looking forward to this visit.  We fly into Portland and then will be driving straight out to the coast and spending 3 nights on Cannon Beach.

Solo Travel – Rocky Mountain High

A week ago I decided that I needed a little time to myself.  I have an upcoming summertime lull in my work schedule for the first time in almost two years and I have been hard charging for awhile now. Between the daily office grind and a 2 to 3 hour commute in hellish traffic… Continue reading Solo Travel – Rocky Mountain High

Dream Hotels – South Pacific Edition

Steve and I finally visited the South Pacific earlier this year, spending a week in French Polynesia.  Despite the long flight in coach, we thoroughly enjoyed the vacation and it is definitely one of the most scenic and stunning spots in the world.  The beauty of Bora Bora didn’t even seem real – it was… Continue reading Dream Hotels – South Pacific Edition

Why I Have the Travel Bug

My wanderlust started a long time ago and more recently has reached near obsession level – I don’t plan to slow down anytime soon.  My father worked for Mary Kay Cosmetics for about 25 years.  Yes, that Mary Kay with the big hair and the pink cadillac but no, my dad never drove a pink… Continue reading Why I Have the Travel Bug

Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas

We are back from a wonderful 4 night stay in Las Vegas.  Yes, it was hot but we did exactly what we had planned to do – hung out by the pool, ate a little too much good food, drank a few too many cocktails, walked the Strip, went to the spa and generally relaxed.… Continue reading Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas
