Happy Friday and welcome back to Feature Friday! When people think of travelling to Kenya, a lot of people dream of visiting the Giraffe Manor – at least I know I do. An exclusive boutique hotel that showcases giraffes as part of the experience is sure to draw travellers from all over the world. From social media, it seems as if the giraffes are literally right there with you during your stay – from dining with you through the window to seeing them living their life right outside your hotel room window. It truly seems like an experience of a lifetime. I haven’t been to the Giraffe Manor yet, but I did reach out to Keisha of @_keisha_la and Daniel of @distinctiontravels to share their experiences from visiting. Let’s see what they have to say:Continue reading “Feature Friday: Giraffe Manor”
The Future of Travel: The Vaccine Passport
The future of travel is so uncertain nowadays as we navigate our new normal. Although people are still travelling, guidance is constantly changing. A few weeks ago, I saw Qantas announced it will be required for their passengers to be vaccinated in order to fly with them. I only saw the news title, as I didn’t have time to read in that moment, but I had a slew of questions. What exactly does that mean? Is that only for international flights, or is it for domestic as well? Are other airlines following suit? How are people going to prove their vaccination status? Will there be a vaccine passport? When does this go into effect? What if you already have a flight booked? All these questions led me to research for some more information, and this is what I found:Continue reading “The Future of Travel: The Vaccine Passport”

Feature Friday: Meet Victoria M.
Happy Friday! I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during these turbulent times. I thought this would be the perfect time to bring back Feature Friday. In case you don’t know, Feature Friday is usually an interview segment where we get to know a little more and behind the scenes of a traveller, travel blogger, or in this case – a pilot! How cool is that? I met Victoria years ago through competitive swimming. We swam on the same club team and the same high school team. Now, Victoria is a certified pilot and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share her journey with you!Continue reading “Feature Friday: Meet Victoria M.”

Accessibility at Disney World
Disclaimer: I am an able-bodied individual speaking on accessibility at Disney World.
It never even crossed my mind that I would be able to say I’ve been to Disney World more times than I can count! Okay, I haven’t been that much, but more than the once in a lifetime I was expecting. If interested, check out my previous Disney posts here, here, and here! The cool thing about returning to Disney is that each time I go, I learn something new! This time around, my friend Courtney shared with me about the accessibility at Disney World, and now I’d like to share it with you!Continue reading “Accessibility at Disney World”

American Axes: An Axe-Throwing Facility
Disclosure: I attended American Axes complimentary; however, these are my honest opinions about my experience.
Axe-throwing facilities seem to be growing in popularity as places continue popping up around the United States. American Axes is the first axe-dedicated facility in Marietta, as well as all of Cobb County. How cool is that? I had a chance to experience axe-throwing for the first time there, and I had a blast! Curious to know about the experience, what to expect, and who’s behind it all? Continue reading to learn more about American Axes!Continue reading “American Axes: An Axe-Throwing Facility”
Year in Review: 2019 Year Highlights
2019 is coming to an end, and we’re about to enter into a new decade! Before heading into the new year, I decided to look back on this past year and see my 2019 highlights. Come check it out!
Every year I say the same thing: how crazy is it that the year is ending and the new one is beginning?! Although sometimes it feels like the days go by slowly, the years go by in a blink of an eye! This year I kicked off 2019 in a completely different country, and I travelled to several new countries. I spent time with some of my favorite people, and also made new friendships along the way. I tried new things and learned new things. This year has been filled with laughter and tears; joy and frustration; healing and pain. Despite it all, I have so much to be grateful and thankful for during this past year. Let’s take a look back at the 2019 year highlights:Continue reading “Year in Review: 2019 Year Highlights”
