Denver Highlights

girl in Colorado Springs

On a long summer weekend, me and the boy took a plane out to Colorado to reunite with some old friends and see his family. Having only been to Colorado in the winter, it was really cool to finally see this city in warmer temps. I’ve been to Colorado a few times before but never the downtown Denver area. I was excited to be able to better explore a new city. Here are a few quick highlights from an overall silly and highly memorable weekend.

Journey to Thailand

thailand journey

Not too long ago, a group of friends and I headed to Thailand for a 2-week adventure. Having never traveled to Asia, the trip was incredibly eye-opening and tons of fun. It also cured my travel bug (for the time being) and renewed my love of Asian food.   The flight time was about 10 hours, with a layover in Tokyo and Bangkok but, with a slew of movies, the overall journey wasn’t too bad. The hardest part was stopping in Bangkok for the night,…

Cancun Thai Lounge

If you go anywhere in Cancun to eat, then I definitely recommend the Cancun Thai Lounge. Complete with impressive views and docks that mimic the views of Thailand. Margaritas all around.

Royal Solaris Cancun

This would be the face of a very excited individual bound for Cancun! Well, aside from the very serious business of looking at apps. But aside from that, the excitement was practically oozing. Me and the boy headed to Cancun to Royal Solaris Cancun for some sun and relaxation. A little flight snack. I get pretty anxious during flights so this helps to soothe the nerves somewhat. Don’t worry, I shared. 😉   When we arrived, we were greeted with a drink from the staff,…

Capilano Suspension Bridge

So a while ago I took a weekend trip up to Vancouver to explore some Canadian terrain and for a quick mini adventure. Regrettably, it’s taken me way too long to actually get these pictures up on the blog. Life’s gotten a little too hectic lately but looking back at these pictures has made me seriously itch for another trip or at least a camping getaway to detox and breathe. Who’s with me? Our first day out in Vancouver we ventured to the Capilano Suspension…

Mallory Square

The rest of our first day in Key West with the fam, continued with us taking it easy. We dined at a local restaurant that was right on the bay and not too far from Mallory Square. I think everything looks better over the rim of a margarita glass, don’t you? 😉 And we feasted! On pub fare but delicious nonetheless. We nibbled on lobster sliders (my fave), giant prawns and one very juicy burger. It was enough for a gal to forget all her…

The Frying Pan

There’s something about going back to New York, that always manages to put things  in perspective. Maybe it’s the distance that gives clarification, the jam packed sidewalks or the incredible skyline- but things always manage to feel a little clearer after heading to  the city. I arrived in the city early Thursday morning, before the hustle and bustle, completely jet lagged. I stumbled around Little Italy in search of something to eat. There’s so many Italian pastry shops, it’s hard to choose.  Cupcakes count as…

A Few Parting Thoughts on Eastern Europe

During the time I was in Budapest, I met a whole host of people, all of them incredibly funny, lovely, charming, and gracious. I met a couple of Russians,Siberians, former-Crimeans, Ukranians and even Uzbekistans! Did you knowUzbekistan was a country? I sure as heck didn’t. Don’t even try to ask me where it’slocated. And just like me, they worried about how they were going to find a job, how to paytaxes, where they should rent an apartment and what the actual status of their relationship with that person…

Moscow at Dawn

Moscow– what a strange city! I arrived at the airport in the dead of night and popped in to  my capsule hotel, ready to catch a bit of sleep. I woke up a few hours later when it was still dark, eager to do a bit of touristing during my twelve hour layover in the city.The city was cold and quiet with hardly a person around. Honestly, it creeped me out a tad and I was like, this is totally the part where I get killed…

Baths and Markets: Budapest Day 4-6:

The time I spent in Budapest did truly fly. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to wake up late, enjoy a cup of coffee around noon and then set out for a little miniadventure each day with Sam. Clearly, being incredibly lazy suits me. One day we’d pop up to the baths at Szechenyi, immersing ourselves in to the medicinal,thermal waters until our toes and fingers would get all wrinkly. Then the next day, we would setoff to the Central Market where it was food…
