Because I was going to be in New Orleans for five days, I knew that I had to go and explore more than just the downtown area. I felt that a visit to New Orleans wouldn’t be complete without a swamp tour and I had missed out on several plantations on my visits to other southern cities. So when I found Cajun Encounters tour company and saw that they offered several options for exploring the areas surrounding New Orleans, I was eager to set…

I was there for nearly five days, so I definitely got to see most of what the city has to offer. We spent…

Circa 39 Hotel

Checking into Circa 39 Hotel was a dream. When you arrive at the small boutique hotel in Miami Beach and walk through the doors, you’ll be taken aback by the bold use of color. Because of this, the interior design is stunning. It’s how I would like to decorate my own home. But, perhaps my favorite thing about the hotel was the staff. Everyone was so kind, accommodating, and helpful during our stay at Circa 39. Therefore, if you’re interested in design and…

I grew up in New York, right outside of the city. And even though I spent a lot of my childhood and teenage years in and out of the city, there were still so many things that I had never seen or experienced. That’s why, when I was planning my trip to visit my friends and family over Thanksgiving, I knew I had to go adventuring to new areas around the city. I ended up staying at my friends apartment…
