I make no secret of my love affair with travel. It’s the thing that invigorates me, inspires me, sates the wonder I carry with me. It’s the thing I crave, crush on and chase after whether I intended to or not. It’s the thing that either makes people think I’m absolutely crazy or makes them low-key hate me for going places they haven’t. Either way, it matters not. Travel is about the relationship you want to have with the world. So, on days when love is top of mind, my shout out goes to travel. For being my forever boo. Here, my ode to travel, for all the things I love about it… How you open m ..read more

5 of the best weekend travel bags out there

We’re traveling more this year. We’ve already committed to it. That means we need the right gear to go with. And while there are endless articles about the best carry-on bag and the best big luggage, I find myself rarely having the right bag to take on weekend trips—one that’s not too small or too big, stylish but not overpriced, convenient but still cute, and most importantly, doesn’t rely on a too-short handle to carry a not-always-light load. So, I did some digging and here’s what I found. Happy weekending. 1. Lo & Sons: The Catalina Deluxe Image credit: loandsons.com Anything that says ..read more

What’s really going on with TSA and travel right now

The United States is a hot mess right now. There are a number of things going dreadfully awry in this country, but for sanity’s sake, let’s just focus on what the ongoing government shutdown means for travel. Really, it means the TSA is a hot mess too. Not surprisingly, a lack of paychecks thanks to what has become the longest government shutdown in history, has spawned a lack of interest in working. So TSA workers are calling in sick, tapping into vacation days or taking their cool time when they are at work toiling sans pay. (Because Transportation Security Administration agents are conside ..read more

5 things to do in St. Lucia besides honeymoon

St. Lucia may have won for World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination in the World Travel Awards last year, making 10 times the island has snagged the romantic title, but there’s more to this gem for those of us looking for something other than a post sealing-the-deal destination. The 27-mile-long island in the Eastern Caribbean, where the sea breeze carries with it the cool sounds of Saint Lucian Creole French (Kwéyòl) being spoken in the streets and the scent of fresh bread baking in wood burning stone ovens, has its own way of romancing you—and it has little to do with love, lust or otherw ..read more

19 travel goals for 2019

Every year, instead of making New Year’s Resolutions I potentially won’t keep because A) they’re not realistic, or B) I’ve forgotten what they are entirely, I make goals. And I make specific goals, tied to things I want to achieve, like new travel publications I’d like to be published in, or an amount of money I’d like to save. When it comes to travel, I like to outline overall aspirations, plus more pointed things I’d like to see happen in the year ahead. So, in honor of 2019, here are 19 travel goals for this year. Yes, it may be my list, but the goals should speak to any wanderer who wants ..read more

My best travel moments of 2018

It’s just about the time of year where we reflect on all that’s happened, what we liked, what we didn’t, and what we intend to make sure definitely does/doesn’t happen in the New Year. It’s also about the time people start thinking about New Year’s resolutions that will have likely gone out the window by the time February rolls around. But more on that later. No matter how my year has gone, I try to always look back at all the good things that travel brought me. Whether it was finally seeing a place I’ve dreamed of for years, or making life-shaping memories with the people I love most, or tast ..read more

These travel booking sites let you buy now, pay later

If money is what’s keeping you back from traveling, 2019 may just be your year to run the world thanks to travel “layaway.” You’ve heard of buy now, pay later for things like furniture or clothing, but did you know you can do the same with travel? To be perfectly honest, I just discovered this and…#mindblown. The biggest challenge when planning for a trip (apart from deciding who to travel with, where to go, when to go, what to pack, what you’ll do there and how to get the time off work) is that you have to pay for it all at once. And sometimes, if you haven’t been saving up for a specific tri ..read more

3 ideas for travel-themed holiday decor

When I say I love travel, it’s not an understatement—the travel bug touches everything I do. Including how I approach decorating the house for the holidays (and for the regular days, too, but more on that in another post). On every trip I take, I consider how to let the memory of that place live on in my home, because surrounding yourself with relics from your adventures creates that constant sense of wander I crave. When it comes to the holidays, specifically, here are three ideas I have for marrying your love of travel with the festivities of the season. 1. Collect ornaments instead of  ..read more
