2 miles east of mainland Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel feels like its own little Caribbean oasis, surrounded on all sides by turquoise, crystal-clear water as far as the eye can see. Here is the itinerary we used to spend 3 days exploring all that Cozumel, Mexico had to offer.
For me, winter usually just means a 10-degree drop in temperature and occasional rain, and snow is just a far-off fairytale that I only get to see on social media and in movies, and I know I’m not alone! But that’s where Big Bear comes in. With only one day to spare in late January, we decided to take a day trip and see for ourselves just what makes Big Bear so magical.

You’ll see everything from La Sagrada Familia, to the cliffs of Cinque Terre, to the inner workings of the Vatican!

It’s funny how when people ask you where in the world you’d like to travel, more often than not, we choose someplace on the opposite end of the earth. Suffice it to say, it’s easy to just blatantly forget about the destinations that are closest to us when it comes to planning out trips.
With just about 2 full days in Atlanta to myself to explore, I was able to cover a ton of ground. And while I didn’t hit any of the ‘touristy’ spots (you won’t see Coca Cola anywhere in this blog post, sorry), I did fill up my 48 hours with incredible food, diverse neighborhoods, and cocktails and beer so good that you’d think Southern hospitality could be bottled and sold. Read on for my 48-hour guide to Atlanta, Georgia.
We all know that airfare changes constantly and it’s the worst feeling in the world to have to pay more money than you need to in order to get where you want to go. I’ve collected a list of exactly which sites I use to compare flight prices, why I use them, and how they can help you feel confident that you’re finding the best available prices for the trips you want to take.
Last year, I took 15 trips in a year while working full-time! I’m not making significantly more money than the year before. I didn’t quit my job. And I definitely didn’t add more time to the 24 hours we’re all working with. I changed the way I think about the opportunities that are out there, and new doors started opening up that I never even noticed before. Here are 5 little mindset shifts I’ve noticed in myself that will help you get there.
I was honestly a little skeptical at first when I found out I’d be heading to Park City for 4 days with a bunch of people, all of whom could ski or snowboard, while I myself would probably be doing mankind a better service by keeping my feet firmly planted on the ground instead of up on the slopes. But after 4 jam-packed days in Park City, I could NOT have had a better time.
When work is hectic and you need to get away, someplace far off and removed from it the rest of the world can be the perfect way to recharge and spark new energy. Here are 3 unique hotels I’ve stayed in, in 3 amazing remote locations, that are destinations in themselves.
For a small state, there is so much to see and do in such high concentration, that you won’t be bored. In fact, you’ll probably run out of time trying to fit it all in. Here’s how I spent 5 days in Tasmania!
Imagine waking up in the middle of the trees, surrounded by the most unusual rock formations, tucked away in what feels like your own little slice of uninterrupted paradise. From outside your window, you see nothing but round, almost cartoon-like orange mountain peaks, soft, rolling waves, and occasionally, maybe even a wallaby or two.
Before you go on vacation, there’s a flurry of things buzzing around in your head. You’re excited, anxious, and maybe a bit stressed out. But even though it’s always going to be a little crazy during the days leading up to a vacation, it doesn’t have to be chaos.
Have you ever experienced the need to take a vacation from your vacation? Most of us do, but some of us ignore the urge to relax when we get back, because it’s way too tempting to open up your inbox as soon as you get home and just dive right back in. Don’t.
It may be far, and it might take you a while to get there, but once you land, you’ll be hooked on Alaska’s beautiful landscapes, friendly people, and tasty food. Only have a long weekend to spare? No problem. Here’s a guide on how you can tour some of the best parts of south central Alaska in just 4 days.
Isle of Skye is one of Scotland’s most famous, picturesque isles, known for its breathtaking, untamed beauty and magical charm. Waterfalls, unreal terrain, towering cliffs, and unparalleled views make Skye a must-see, even if you’re short on time. While more time is, obviously, recommended if you have it, we had less than 48 hours. Here’s how we made that possible.
Santa Barbara is everything you could ever want out of a west coast getaway–it’s coastal, close to wine country, picturesque, and the architecture everywhere you look makes you feel like you’re no longer in the US… which helps create the illusion that you’re in a much more remote destination than you actually are.
The Kimpton Goodland is a boutique hotel located in Goleta, CA. After we checked in, we navigated through the chic interiors, outdoor fire pits, poolside gatherings, and colorful walls to find our room. The Goodland can best be described as boho surf chic, a coastal-inspired decor-lover’s dream, and everywhere you looked, you couldn’t help (in this day and age) to think, “wow, that would make a good Instagram post.”
If you do plan to visit Skye from any of Scotland’s major cities, one thing’s for sure. After a long, moderately intense, somewhat grueling and long drive, Skye isn’t just something you can see for 5 minutes and then hit the road. You’re going to need a place to stay. And that’s where the cowsheds, a remote Scotlands hotel, comes in.
Utah. When you think of it, you probably immediately think of sprawling red rock formations, mountain biking, snow, and ski resorts. But without a car, and with no mountain biking/snowboarding/skiing experience, I wasn’t here to do any of that.So, what’s the draw of going to Utah when you’re not going for the snow? A lot, actually.
