Nashville Work Trip


With all the busy weekends the past few weeks, I made sure I was feeling rested before making my way over to Nashville last week Monday for a work training conference. The days were packed starting with breakfast at 8 am, back-to-back courses throughout the day until about 5 pm, then ending with happy hours, dinner and networking.

Austin Double Decker Bus Tour


We had a blast exploring Austin, TX over Labor Day weekend to celebrate K's birthday and, while most of the trip was unplanned, I did book a hop on/hop off sightseeing and historic tour on the Double Decker Austin.

Adventures in Austin, Texas


Austin has been on my travel wish list for several years now and we finally made it over there for Labor Day weekend to celebrate K's birthday.

Fun and Funnies in Austin, TX


Happy Birthday to my 2 loves - K and Lola who share the same birthday today!

We got back from Austin on Monday night after a fun-filled long weekend celebrating K's birthday so I'm in the struggle mode trying to get back on track with a busy work schedule. With that said, I'm keeping it light today with some fun and funny sightings from our trip.

Labor Day Weekend + TBB Asks


Happy Labor Day everyone! We've been in Austin, TX since Friday exploring the food and music scene along with a historical tour on Saturday. Hope you all enjoy the holiday today.

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.

Lido Key Beach: Anniversary #8


Wishing the weekend was longer so we could have celebrated our wedding anniversary for more than one night at the beautiful Lido Beach Resort.

Touring Key West



The view of the port in Key West from the cruise ship.

Even with the overcast weather, Key West was a blast to explore. We had no excursions or tours booked. All we knew is that we wanted to visit Duval Street, grab some local seafood for lunch, and then make our way to the Southernmost Point. The typical tourist things.

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!

2018 Travel Planning


Traveling is my passion or at least all the experiences that come along with it. Discovering new cultures, trying the food, exploring architecture, and learning the history of these places. This year I'm a little short on PTO from work since we spent New Year's and the beginning of 2018 in beautiful Tobago after celebrating Christmas with family in Trinidad.

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.

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.

Historic Sightseeing Boston Harbor Cruise


Last Saturday we spent the day playing tourist exploring the beautiful city of Boston. Yesterday I posted about all the attractions we visited using the Boston CityPASS, with the Historic Sightseeing Cruise being my favorite of all.
