Independent, Classy & Strong: The Breakers, Palm Beach

There’s brunch, and then there’s brunch on the beach. It’s little details like this that make The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida stand the test of time – in fact, it has been an iconic hotel for more than one hundred years. A bow and smile from all the staff, fresh flowers everyday and perfectly crafted cocktails all set the tone for a glamorous and indulgent experience. As far as Palm Beach hotels go, this is the only one right on the water and near downtown. Check out this lineup:…

Animal Appeals and Spa Deals in Sanibel Island, Florida

Who doesn’t get excited about dolphins?! I squealed right alongside the kids when about a half dozen leaped and bounded alongside the boat. The Capitan insisted our screeching and whistling helped encourage the jumping, but I think he just delighted in seeing the little ones lose their minds. There’s so many wild creatures that call the islands around Sanibel home that I encountered new ones every day. These days being on the road usually means work.

A presidential meeting in Little Rock, Arkansas

History? Politics? I could pass. But I’m so glad I didn’t while in Little Rock, especially when I checked out the William J. Clinton Presidential Center.

In the next breath, everyone was twittering about the pink-bombed Barbie Cafe too we might see in Taipei later, all of which was enough to make me question my life choices about traveling for a living.

Preview of my dream coming true: Mazatlan, Mexico

I can’t believe it took me this long to visit our neighbors south of the border. Being an East Coast native I assumed I’d be visiting Cancun or Playa del Carmen on my first adventure, but instead I was assigned to Mazatlan. Located in Sinaloa, this city is hugged by a fantastic, warm ocean and some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. They had a field day making fun of my Spain accent, yes ha ha laugh it up I know I sound like I have marbles in my mouth. Besides that though, like seriously, Mexico is wonderful. All those rumors were laid to rest…
