Luxury at the Four Seasons Langkawi

Four Seasons Langkawi

Life as a travel blogger is hard work.  Okay, it’s not as hard as a lot of other jobs, but it is not as easy as you might think.  Yes, we get to have really cool experiences because of our blogger status, like our lunch with a wine maker in the Bologna Hills, or going […]

JW Marriott Seoul – Getting the VIP Treatment

JW Marriott Seoul

Yeah, we were treated especially well at the JW Marriott Seoul, but I am convinced it was not hospitality that was bestowed upon us because we are travel bloggers. Instead, it is a Korean hospitality, that I just did not anticipate, which was carried through to the Marriott properties where we stayed. It was a hospitality that had me craving a return visit to to explore more of Korea.

Courtyard Bali Nusa Dua – A Bali Beach Escape

Courtyard Bali Nusa Dua

I have been known to be the Goldilocks of the beaches, and in Bali this was certainly the case. I am not a surfer, or even a strong swimmer, so the hard core, strong wave beaches on the southwest of Bali just don’t do it for me.

And, it took us over one and a half years until we found me the perfect Bali beach escape, at the Courtyard Bali Nusa Dua.

We had three nights to fill before we left Greece and knew that […]

Courtyard Bali Seminyak – A Perfectly Fun Escape

Once the rainy season set in, causing not so fun dark grey clouds to emerge over Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, most days, I knew we needed a break.  Generally, the beach is a little more sunny and warm, so what better way to escape the rain, and escape Ubud, than to head to the Courtyard Bali […]

Living Like Locals in Barcelona

This was our third trip to Barcelona, Spain, truly one of my favorite cities in the world.  But this time, it felt like it was our first. In the past, we have always booked hotels close to Las Ramblas, the main tourist drag between Placa Cataluyna and the water.  The Gothic Quarter is on one […]

A Stylish Stay at the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

I’ve been noticing a trend in my recent search for accommodations.  When we were officially traveling full time, I often sought out the most basic budget accommodations we could find, always concerned about how much we were spending.  This was in direct contradiction to the business travel of my former life where fancy hotels were […]
