Travel: Adults Only Resort

In my mind, the definition of a resort stay, is something strictly for adults, and all-inclusive is where children are allowed. But I guess I was wrong, because this list points out the difference?  And in case you happen to be as baffled as I am because you’ve just learned something new, here’s a list of the ‘kid-friendly resorts‘ By the way, I have a bucket list of hotels I wish to experience, where I have added the ones pictured below.

Travel: New England Bound

I have a journal where I log in all the places and things I want to see in my lifetime, as well as some recipes I’ve come up with while commuting home, and a list of must-read books, hopefully I will get around to in between the many other to-do items listed there as well. On one of the pages, I have planned my trip to New England, which is a part of the U.S. I haven’t been – well, if you consider a train ride from Montreal to New York – having been – then I have, over twenty years go. So, the planning has happened, the driving route settled on and the hotels handpicked by yours truly – the only thing left is deciding which season is best for New England travel, because I hear, all seasons are the best season to experience the region. But if you happen to be fortunate enough to leave near by, here’s a list of 20 romantic weekend getaways in New England and my favorites: {featured image …

Boutique Hotel Pick – The Old Hudson – New York

Normally, my boutique hotel picks consists of a property with at the very least 10 rooms and the entire property filled with charm, or a uniqueness worth experiencing. But The Old Hudson – although two unit studio set-up, this property is ideal for the smallest of special occasions. I’ll let your imagine do the thinking.  Hint: This will be the place I add to my 30-day milestone birthday celebrations:   Learn about the Hidden gem of Hudson, New York 

Boutique Hotel Pick – Carneros Resort and Spa – Napa, Califronia

Although Napa is only an hour away from San Francisco, I cannot help but plan a weekend or weekday getaway to this newly renovated spot – Carneros Resort and Spa – in the heart of Napa Valley with my best companion at my side – fourteen year old Yorkie. {photo credit}

Boutique Hotel Pick – Chateau de Berne, Lorgues, France

Ah the idea of being in a place like this for a week or two, to regroup and clear the mind and body and soul is an idea I’ve had for a long time. Escaping the hustle and bustle of city life and the never ending list of chores and realities of every day life. Nevermind the hotel is 57 miles from the nearest airport. Isn’t that the whole idea? 🙂

Travel: Paris – That’s All

The song Paris by the Chainsmokers is on repeat in my head today, and I think it’s because I’m itching to go again.  I mean I did in March, but it was only for 3 days – as you know that’s not enough. Even for someone like me who’s been there at least a week each year for as long as I can remember. So, if you are like me – craving a week or two or three in Paris – then you might very well appreciate:  Which Paris Neighborhood fits your personality best – test 2. Discover Paris from Instagram 3.
