My Travelversary: Six Years of Travel thumbnail

I love anniversaries. This post marks six years since I traded my beautiful life in Brooklyn for an endless road of boarding passes, baggage claims, and big blogging dreams.

Samabe hopes to take the all-inclusive concept so popular at Grand Mirage and brings it to the luxury level. After living for…

Shark Release

Here’s how a chain reaction works — Alex goes to see Blackfish, a documentary about Orcas in captivity, and can’t stop thinking about it; Alex rents Free Willy, a movie about a little boy who releases an Orca from captivity back into the ocean; Alex remembers that she never posted about the shark release she photographed…
