Exploring Niagara Falls

K and I flew into Buffalo, NY last week Thursday as our plan was to drive to Niagara Falls to see the American side and then cross the border to see the Canadian side of the falls. The rental car company upgraded our car to a brand new Jeep Wrangler because it had Ontario plates so they wanted to get it back over to Canada.

Hello From Canada


Yesterday was a little adventure for K and I. We flew into Buffalo, NY and rented a car to cross the border over to Canada for a weekend of family fun.

TBB Asks: Vacation Edition


Linking up a little late with The Blended Blog ladies because say the word "vacation" and I'm all on it. Traveling and exploring the world is definitely one of my passions.

Cruising - Royal Caribbean Majesty of the Seas


The Royal Caribbean cruise we recently went on left from Tampa and stopped in Key West and then Cuba before heading back to Florida. The Majesty of the Seas is not one of the fancier ships but it has a great pool area for lounging and enough amenities to enjoy while on board.

Playing Tourist in Houston



I had a blast visiting friends and exploring Houston last month. We didn't do any of the real touristy things like museums or aquariums but more checked out the local scene with a few stops to see some sites unique to Houston like the Water Wall.

Houston: The Food & Bar Scene



We packed so much into my Houston trip last weekend, I decided break it up into a few posts focusing on different adventures so this one doesn't turn into a 10-page essay. Today I'm sharing the restaurants, bars, and breweries we visited.

Houston Weekend Highlights

  
I caught a last minute flight to Houston on Thursday to visit friends and they were amazing tour guides driving me around to see all the city has to offer. We packed so much in over the weekend but I got home around midnight last night so I'm doing a quick recap with one picture per day.

Hello Houston!

It was a last minute decision to fly to Houston for the weekend to visit a lifelong friend who is now 7 months pregnant. This is my first time visiting anywhere in Texas so I'm excited to explore Houston and get some quality time with my girl friend.



I'll catch you all next week. Have a great weekend everyone!

Tobago: A Caribbean Gem


Since living in the US, a day doesn't go by without someone asking me where my accent is from. Usually Trinidad and Tobago is the last thing on their mind. Trinidad is where I grew up which is more of a bustling kind of island but Tobago is a short 20 minute flight where we go to relax.

Home For The Holidays


The weekend was extremely low-key around here after returning from vacation so I'm diving right into my travel recaps this week sharing some highlights from our trip to Trinidad & Tobago.

2017 Year Recap: September - December


Sharing the last part of my 2017 Adventures series.

Here's Part one and Part Two, which were both action packed with travel, celebrations, and fun with family/friends.

2017 Year Recap: May - August


I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday on Monday and got to spend time with your loved ones. I shared Part One of my 2017 Adventures last week so here goes Part Two...

Hammock Beach Resort


Vacationing at Hammock Beach Resort a few weekends ago was a retreat of a lifetime! It was luxurious, relaxing, fun with coworkers/friends, and all around an experience that exceeded my expectations.

Fun Times in New York City


So I took a very spur of the moment trip to NYC last weekend. When your husband is traveling for work and you find round-trip flights for $170...SOLD! I was supposed to fly out on Thursday afternoon but after many delays the plane finally left Orlando at 10:30pm and I arrived at the hotel around 1am.

Weekend in NYC


Good morning! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. 

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (emilyalisonb), you might have seen that I was in NYC over the weekend.

Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre


Last week I shared some of our adventures in Denver but knew a separate post was needed for all the beauty Red Rocks has to offer. What a dream venue for a concert!

Backing up to last month when a group of us friends flew to Denver to see Slightly Stoopid at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. We knew we were in for a treat but not hiking up about two thousand stairs.

Denver Travel Recap


The trio of us friends had a blast in Denver all prompted by the mutual love for a band and the fact that seeing them live at one of the most gorgeous venues in the US was on our bucket list. I went to Denver for the first time last year with K and really enjoyed exploring the brewery scene and catching a ballgame at Coors Field yet we never made it to Red Rocks Park which I was bummed about.

Weekend Highlights - Exploring Denver



What a weekend!
It was action packed exploring Denver on foot from morning until late night - shopping, eating, listening to live music on the streets, bar hopping, and checking out all the downtown scenery.

Denver


Happy Friday!

We arrived in Denver yesterday to catch a concert tonight so I'll be disconnected for the next few days.

Playa del Carmen Shopping Village


Since returning home from our Mexico trip, I've shared a couple posts about our adventures in Playa del Carmen and Cozumel. This is the final roundup because the shopping village in Playa del Carmen is worth talking about.
