    Barbados Holidays

    Thursday, January 29, 2015

    Does sipping on a cool cocktail on a nearly deserted, pure white sand beach with a turquoise blue ocean in front of you sound like a bucket list item?  If so, a Barbados Holiday is a great item to scratch off of your to-do-list.  Located just east of the Windward Islands in the Caribbean Sea, […]

    USA: Reflection Return

    Thursday, January 29, 2015

    Finding one spot where I’m filled with gratitude is incredibly hard. I’ve moved a lot, slept under various skies, eaten many different kitchens, and said “good morning!” in a few languages.  I’ve returned to places I had initially felt good, but found the scenery had changed. I’ve visited friends who at one time ignited a […]

    Nigeria: My school My tale

    Wednesday, January 28, 2015

    My admission to a State University made me a somewhat traveler. From my house to School was a two hours journey which I do almost every week. My admission was a thing of joy. Running out from the computer village where I checked my result and straight to our house, in high spirits, my heart […]

    Iao Valley, USA

    Wednesday, January 28, 2015

    Iao Valley The chilled stream, which traverses through peaceful botanical gardens in the depths of Iao Valley, once turned a vibrant crimson from the bleeding bodies of fallen soldiers. In 1790 Kamehameha I, in an attempt to unite the Hawaiian Islands, battled Kalanikupule, leader of Maui and Maui’s army. Maui’s army, equipped only with spears […]

    Malta: Dreaming of a Holiday?

    Tuesday, January 27, 2015

    Does your New Year’s Resolution include travel? I want to go to the Corinthia Hotel St Georges Bay Malta and have dinner outside. This picture is practically making me drool! I have never been to Malta and I think I just might book by Feb 27, 2015  and stay at this luxury hotel for 50% off! I […]

    Grateful for the Tides in Bermuda

    Tuesday, January 27, 2015

    Grateful for the Tides As a child I spent much of my time in the summer splashing about in the shallows of Flatt’s Inlet in my sub-tropical island home of Bermuda.  On summer afternoons my parents would sit on the grass in the shade of swaying palm trees as my brother and I would seek […]

    San Francisco, California – House of Travelers

    Tuesday, January 27, 2015

    Though I’ve been traveling for a year and a half and thought I would never stop, Europe was my first time backpacking in multiple cities for an extended period – I was no expert. I went plenty of nights without sleeping while stuck on fifteen hour bus rides, slept on at least thirty different surfaces […]

    On the Strangest Sea in the USA

    Monday, January 26, 2015

    Otters, half-covered in kelp and half-asleep, are floating in the briny seawater to our left. There are also brown, glistening sea lions basking on the brown, glistening rocks nearby, braying at biscuit-munching tourists and at each-other. And sea birds, squawking loudly, thrashing their wings overhead and underfoot. The ocean itself is wailing like a fiend […]

    Mind Transcending in Nigeria

    Monday, January 26, 2015

    Mind transcending The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. My journey of trillions of miles begins with one thought. It doesn’t matter where I am, all I have to do is to be at peace with myself and I can travel far, far away to a land where I am profoundly happy. […]

Or if you pick phenomenal food, then there’s no entertainment. But Los Angeles has provided a five-star solution. In Beverly Hills, you can have your cake and […]
