The Scotch Whisky Experience In Edinburgh

November 11, 2017
the scotch whisky experience

I LOVE Whisky. I have been drinking it since I can remember. I’m usually more of a bourbon drinker, but when I was planning my trip to Scotland, I knew I had to go and learn about scotch whisky. Which is how I ended up reaching out to the Scotch Whisky Experience in Edinburgh. And after explaining my love of the drink to them, they suggested that I sign up for the Morning Whisky Masterclass that they offer. The Scotch…

November 6, 2017

There was one thing I knew I had to do when visiting Scotland. In fact, I added an extra day to my time in Edinburgh, just so I could take a day tour to visit the Scottish Highlands. My next step was figuring out how I was going to get there. And I did a lot of research. And that’s because there are a ton of tour companies based out of Edinburg that do similar day trips. But I wanted…

There are some hotels that just take your breathe away. The G&V Royal Mile Hotel did that for me. After traveling for over 24 hours and then walking uphill with a fifty pound suitcase, I was relieved to arrive at such a gorgeous place with the friendliest staff. Immediately upon arrival and checking in, my bag was taken right to my room. One of the women from reception even walked me right to my door. Before leaving, she asked me…

A Quick Stop In Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

October 23, 2017

Santo Domingo was my dream. I loved exploring the Colonial Zone and wandering down the streets that were lined with colorful buildings and houses. The streets were bustling, there were people wandering around, and it was full of life. When you travel to the Southwest Dominican Republic, odds are you’ll be flying in and out of the international airport in Santo Domingo. So the city is a great place to end your trip. I suggest spending two nights in the city…

Five Things To Do In Southwest Dominican Republic

October 16, 2017

There are certain countries that I have traveled to, but I don’t feel as if I have actually seen the country. Dominican Republic was one of those places. That is, until now. I was able to explore the Southwest Dominican Republic for a week and it truly blew me away. It’s nothing like the all inclusive resorts of Punta Cana (a place I have been about six times). Instead, you can explore untouched beaches, encounter wildlife, hike waterfalls, and go on…

How To Spend Two Weeks In Japan

October 13, 2017
two weeks in japan

You could probably spend about a month in Japan and still not get to see everything. The country is filled with so many wonderful places that it’s hard to squeeze them all in. When I visited, I spent two weeks exploring. During those two weeks in Japan I just scratched the surface. In fourteen days I traveled to five different cities. I did touristy things and I wandered around the streets getting lost (which is the best way to see…

Two weeks in Taiwan

October 9, 2017

I just got back from two weeks in Taiwan with the Taiwan Tourism Bureau. And it was a trip that left me feeling a lot of different emotions. I was happy to explore a new country, one that hadn’t been on my radar before this opportunity presented itself. I was also excited to get back to Asia. But, I like to be as real as possible with you. I did feel a bit isolated because of the language barrier and…

The Best Murals In Taipei

October 6, 2017

One of the first things that I do when I decide on a new destination is figure out whether or not I’m going to get my fill of street art. When I found out I was going to be in Taiwan for two weeks, and Taipei for a large majority of that, I knew I needed to scope it out. I spent hours on google and Pinterest, but unfortunately, I was unable to find much. Luckily, one of my favorite things…
