Plan B- La Palma

On the very first day of our La Palma travel, we stumbled into Plan B, straight off of the beach, opting for small “snacks” that turned out to be patas bravas and a very potato-heavy Spanish tortilla. Potatoes we had covered! It was heavy, but so nice that we opted to return for dinner… during…

Hotel HM Alma- Palma de Mallorca

We booked a trip to Mallorca three days before departing. We need a break and the cheapest beach flight that we could find would lead us to Palma de Mallorca and Hotel HM Alma. Only a 10 minute bus ride from the airport, the hotel was more than convenient and situated between two tranquil bays….

Swiss Miss: Interlaken & Grindelwald

It had been <gulp> 11ish years since I’d been to Interlaken and I’m amused to say that it has not changed one bit! At least the old town looks just as it did, complete with a sign in the window of an adult shop claiming ‘last sex shop before the Jungfrau.’ Glad to know that…

Macarons in Bed

That’s Macarons in Bed, not mayhem…get your mind out of the gutter. Macarons in Bed are not only a sweet luxury en suite, they’re also the new hotel ranking system from the gorgeous team behind this tasty blog of wanderlust. Along with each sometimes sarcastic, sometimes overly passionate hotel write-up, a number of macarons will…

Hyatt Ziva Cancun

A few weeks ago I received a text from a girlfriend asking if I could do two weeks in Australia with her on a whim. Andddd this is why we are friends! I told her my big vacation budget for the year had been spent. So, we settled on a long weekend in Cancun with…

Hôtel Saint-Marc, Paris

Then, let me introduce you to the charming, Hôtel Saint-Marc in the second arrondissement. Green Velvet: The breakfast room was simple, but still instagramable. Teal…

Andaz London

A few weeks ago, mum and I commenced the London portion of our European tour with a stay at the Andaz London- Liverpool Street. We left Paris a day early feeling uncomfortable by about everything going on in that city at the moment. I called Andaz to add a night to the room and they…

Her Majesty’s Pleasure

Her Majesty’s Pleasure. Can you think of the better name for a bar/spa establishment?? Especially after my sis told customs that she was in Toronto for pleasure. Well, then! Pleasure we must find! And that we did. The super girly looking bar lured us in from the street while we were waiting for our dinner…

Gusto 101

Two weeks of eating out every meal in Toronto was certainly an aggressive endeavor, but hey someone had to do it. After honestly, many a mediocre meal, the final night my sis and I dined at the often recommended Gusto 101, which was absolutely fantastic. I’m not sure if they take online reservations, but they…

Thompson Toronto

After a few days in Mexico, I stopped home, swapped suitcases and headed to Toronto for two (very long) weeks. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to see my bed before. Or cook. Or nap. Or read. Or anything at my house (except unpack). I spent a chunk of my time at the…
