With trips to Mexico, St. Lucia, and Hawaii coming up before December, we’re starting to think about the holidays. Should we go big or stay home this year? Since I started writing a few sponsored posts for Contiki, I haven’t been able to get off of their site or get a few destinations out of my mind. It’s become a starting board for me; a place where dreams begin and the wheels start turning for new adventures. Thailand has moved up on my list as well as Australia. Darren only has so much vacation time; maybe we should utilize it for a Asian or Australian vacation. Do we need to be in our home to enjoy the holidays? Let’s weigh the options. Continue reading
Family vacations don’t have to be boring. Traveling with toddler can be as adventurous as traveling solo if you’re creative and use the resources available. Athena and I just returned from the luxurious Windjammer Landing in St. Lucia where we were able to visit a waterfall, ride a catamaran, snorkel in the ocean, swim in the pool, kayak the bay, do the limbo, and run along the beach. I also rode “Big Mama”, toured the bay and snorkeled, played on the ocean trampoline, and water-skied while Athena enjoyed the Jacquot Fun Club, made her own tie dye t-shirt, danced, sang, and played with other kids. I was able to manage all of this in one week as a solo parent with a toddler; Windjammer Landing makes it possible for anyone.
St. Lucia’s Windjammer Landing has left me speechless. We’ve enjoyed the barefoot luxury, amazing entertainment, adventure, culture, and cuisine, but the sunsets are what make Windjammer Landing truly spectacular. Here’s a treat for the senses with 5 spectacular sunset photos from Windjammer Landing. Continue reading
I’ve been living a life of adventure and sheer beauty, exploring new countries and cultures, but spending the day with my daughter is truly what it means to be alive. Today, at Windjammer Landing in St. Lucia, we did nothing and everything at the same time. We gave the greatest gift to each other – our time. Continue reading
When we drove up to the front doors, I couldn’t believe this was my villa for the next week. This must have been what Cinderella felt like during her first night in the castle with Prince Charming. I’ve visited dozens upon dozens of resorts, but nothing could have prepared me for what I saw at Windjammer Landing today. The luxurious estate villas are like peering into the lives of Lifestyles of the Rich ans Famous. Would you like a tour? Continue reading
Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
~ Falsely yours”
― Charles Bukowski
Travel is my love. It’s deeply rooted in my soul. Writing and owning Bucket List Publications has brought the world to my doorstep. This year I visited 14 new countries and returned to many of my favorites from the past. It has consumed me. I’m always planning my next trip. It’s a drug and I’m high all the time. But it’s not a bad thing. I’m going to die doing what I love and taking as much in as humanly possible.
I just returned from a four day trip to Club Med Cancun where I tried trapeze, kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing, swimming in a cenote, catamaran sailing, dancing, and riding a bull. I’m exhausted, but tomorrow I will take the over-night flight to St. Lucia and start another new adventure at Windjammer Landing. I’ve found what I love and I’ll give it everything I have.
Have you found what you love?
