Teenage Travel

A few weeks ago I embarked on a travel experience unlike any other. I took my 13-year-old niece on her first, hopefully not last, international trip. The last few years my niece Zoie has asked me to take her on a  trip. Thankfully the stars aligned and I finally made it happen. Initially, I wanted…

Bienvenido a Cuba

Never in my life had I been more nervous before going through customs.

Because Wow airlines is a budget airline, they charge for everything like advance seat selection, luggage, food, water, etc. However, if…

New Zealand-my new favorite country!

After a couple days in Sydney, I headed to Auckland, New Zealand. I went to meet up with one of my good friends CJ who was also in New Zealand vacationing.  The airbnb I stayed at was across the street from the Sky Tower so the location couldn’t be more perfect. The Sky Tower boasts some of…

Living Spree in Sydney!

When life gives you lemons… This year has been full of triumphs and setbacks. I have been blessed beyond measure but I have to admit this last month has been full of challenges which have at times left me feeling hopeless and confused. However, due to unforeseen circumstances I was able to make one of…

A day in Norway

  Oslo was my final stop in Scandinavia. I spent a day there on my way back to Copenhagen, which is where my return flight home left from. I have to say I enjoyed Oslo the most. From start to finish, I was captivated by the sheer beauty of the city. The weather was absolutely…
