Hong Kong Touring

Hong Kong was my most favorite city we visited in China.  We spent the most time here of all of the spots during our two and a half week trip. On the first day we took a private city tour and saw Victoria Peak, rode the mid level escalators, drove around the harbor a bit…

The Upper House Hong Kong

Hong Kong is not to be missed on a trip to China.  Because of it’s former British Rule, it is a city runs somewhat independently of the main part of the country, having distinctive traits of both Chinese culture and British heritage.  The mountains juxtaposed with the Harbor make this one of the most beautiful…

Yangshuo, China

The picturesque city of Yangshuo sits along the Li and Yulong Rivers.  It’s a 2.5hr flight Southwest of Beijing and 1.5 hours due west of Hong Kong, in the mountains of the Guangxi province.  To get to Yangshuo, travelers fly through Guilin airport and then it is about an hour and a half drive to…

Starting the trip- Beijing!

Now that I am finally clearing out of Jet Lag, I wanted to start my series of posts on our trip to Asia last month. This trip was in the works for over a year, after being rescheduled from its original dates in September 2017, we finally embarked on our journey March 8th; flying directly…

Take me to #RemoteLands

For over a year, I have been planning a trip to China and Indonesia for my family.  Probably being the most complicated trip I have ever planned for myself personally; between Visas, 4 internal flights, 2 ferry rides, 7 hotels, and the where-when-and how, I reached out to Tour Company Remote Lands, which specializes in…

Weekend at Rough Creek Lodge

Last weekend my husband and I decided to take an impromptu “Stay-Cation” in Glen Rose at Rough Creek Lodge.  This is a hunter’s paradise, so to speak, and with neither my husband nor I avid hunters, we still found plenty to do and explore on this 11,000 acre ranch just a little over an hour…

Myanmar

I had the great privilege of visiting Myanmar (Burma) on a Study Tour with Abercrombie and Kent in April of 2017.  I honestly can’t say enough how visiting this amazing country changed my life– the culture, the beauty, the people who live there and the people I met traveling with me. Our journey began in…

Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel, VIP Tours, Club 33 and more

Disneyland offers a unique opportunity to enjoy the Magic of Disney in a less stressful, more nostalgic, and a little different way. If you have boys (or girls!) who like the Cars Movies or Monster’s Inc, Disneyland offers a lot of fun that isn’t available at Walt Disney World.  Radiator Springs Racers is one of…

St. Regis Aspen

Aspen is one of my favorite cities in the world.  Very few places in the world offer the arts, culture, shopping, and dining quality on par with New York, Paris, or London all bundled within a small mountain town.  Plus, what isn’t to love about the picturesque Maroon Bells, world class skiing, and summer weather…

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

My daughter and I embarked on our annual Mother Daughter Disney trip this year in July, and as any good Travel Advisor would do, we experienced new things and stayed at a resort which we had visited but never stayed at. Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is located in the Magic Kingdom Area of the Walt Disney…
