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.

Travel Tuesdays: Nassau, Bahamas

We visited Nassau for the second time last October when we went on a 3-day Royal Caribbean cruise. It's a beautiful island with some cool things to see.
The Port in Nassau
A childhood friend of mine now lives in Nassau so we had our own personal tour guide on our most recent trip. She took us to an ocean-front restaurant called the Beach Club Cafe which was amazing.

She introduced me to the best Strawberry Mojitos on the island.

If you are visiting Nassau, I also recommend you take a tour of Atlantis Hotel. You can walk through their huge aquarium or go have fun in the water park.

Sands Bahamian Beer is my favorite and Conch fritters are definitely worth trying if you are visiting the Bahamas.

Looking forward to reading about your travels!

Travel Tuesdays: Marco Island, FL

We went to Marco Island for Memorial weekend and K's birthday with some friends a couple years ago and had a great time exploring the quiet beach town on Florida's South West coast.

Cape Marco Beach
Luckily our friend's family owns a condo on the beach so we had an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico for the weekend.

During the day we lounged on the beach and at the pool. The girls also did some shelling while the guys fished off of the dock. They even caught us dinner one of the days.

We also went for sunset dinner and drinks on the water which was fun.

I really enjoyed visiting the cute beach town of Marco Island.

What's your favorite beach town?

Travel Tuesdays: Trinidad W.I.

You may already know that I grew up in Trinidad and moved to Florida when I was 18 yo so it holds a special place in my heart. Although Trinidad & Tobago is one country, it is two separate islands each with their own beauty. 

 I captured some of my favorite things on my most recent trip to Trinidad.

Maracas Bay Beach

 Local Snacks

Boat Parties off the NW coast of Trinidad.

Known locally as "Down the Islands"

 "Shark n Bake" 
(aka the best fish sandwich in the world... according to me & Andrew Zimmern).

Only a quick flight over to Tobago for more beautiful beaches.

I'm looking forward to our upcoming trip to T&T to spend NYE with friends and family in the sunny islands that stay 90 degrees all year long.

Travel Tuesdays: Cruising to Alaska

A few years ago we went on a 7-night cruise to Alaska on Royal Caribbean. This was a family trip organized by my grandmother so all of the cousins got to spend time together. The cruise left from Vancouver, British Columbia so we arrived a day early to do some site-seeing in B.C.

 Alaska was very beautiful and serene. We stopped in 3 different ports in Alaska - Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan.

We had a great time on the ship, however I prefer tropical weather for a cruise so it was a little different from the usual sunny vacation. The cousins of course found ourselves drinking at the bar every night.

Good times!

Travel Tuesdays - Biloxi, MS

My old roommate and I took a roadtrip up to Biloxi back in 2007 since her grandparents are casino regulars and got us a free hotel room for the weekend. As you probably know Biloxi was flattened by hurricane Katrina in 2005 so the city itself was quite bare except for several large casinos. We stayed at the Isle of Capri Hotel & Casino.

Neither of us are big gamblers but we entertained ourselves on the cheap slot machines so we could at least get free drinks.

We also visited the Hardrock Casino and the Beau Rivage. Not much else to do in Biloxi.

We drove around the city and it was sad seeing all the houses and buildings that were destroyed by Katrina. Other than that we had a great time while we were there.

Have a great week!

Disney Pt 1: Epcot & Animal Kingdom

Joining Helene today for another week of Travel Tuesdays.

Thought I'd share some of our Disney adventures from my two favorite parks - Epcot and Animal Kingdom - from a few summers ago. We happened to go during Epcot's Flower & Garden festival so that explains all the fancy character scrubs!

The pub in England - Epcot, Orlando FL.

 At Animal Kingdom we went on the Everest roller coaster which is one of the better Disney rides.

And went on the African Safari along with a few other small rides.
I love Disney but the lines and wait times are insane so we end up skipping out some of the rides.  Ah well, fun times!

That's all for this week's travel Tuesday!!
