If you’re anything like me as soon as the fireworks and celebrations of New Year’s end the search for where to go in the coming year begins. I reached out to the travel blogging community for their suggestions on the top destinations for 2017 and the response was overwhelming. The 34 destinations on this year’s list span the globe; from Antarctica to the Azores, Fiji to Finland, Malawi to Mongolia these places will surely inspire your wanderlust. Without further ado, here is where to travel in 2017. #travel #2017

When it comes to travel I’m a woman of varied tastes. Sometimes I’m looking for a romantic getaway with Steve, complete with a beautiful room and spectacular views. Sometimes it’s all about outdoors adventure, whether it’s days spent hiking with stunning vistas as my reward or a leisurely morning exploring the woods on horseback. Sometimes I’m looking for a bit of pampering with an afternoon at the spa followed by a five star meal. Once in a great while I’m lucky to find all of this in one destination, with a stunning location deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia. This is Primland Resort.

Just because it's fall doesn't mean its time to pack away your thoughts of a great beach vacation. Check out my latest post on Matador Network on why Virginia Beach should be your next fall destination. +Matador Network  #visitvabeach  
There's more to fall than pumpkin spice. But you can find that here too. #visitvabeach

Iceland is a captivating destination for any traveler and with a host of new low cost flight options from North America and mainland Europe there has never been a better time to visit. Volcanoes, glaciers, the wind and the sea merge to create a landscape that is like nowhere else on Earth. Whether you come for the eternal sun of summer or in search of winter’s Northern Lights nature is sure to put on a show. Here are a few tips to help you plan your first trip to the land of ice and fire. http://casualtravelist.com/blog/25-travel-tips-iceland/

This past weekend, we took advantage of that late fall weather, booked a rental car and hit the road for Alabama.

I have a confession to make- I often fall into the trap of feeling like I need to jet off to some far flung destination to truly feel like I’ve traveled neglecting some hidden gems that are literally right under my nose. So when a friend told me I needed to check out Hampton, a mere 30 minutes from my home in Virginia Beach, I was intrigued. What I found was an under-the-radar town that has played a pivotal role in American history, and will find any reason to throw a party along with some seriously good eats. An easy drive from both Virginia Beach and Williamsburg, Hampton is an easy addition to any Coastal Virginia vacation. Here are my recommendations for what to do in Hampton, Virginia. #travel   #loveva

When I’m on the road I want to look put together without a lot of effort. Classy but not fussy, beautiful yet comfortable; that is the look I’m going for. I need something that packs easily but doesn’t wrinkle and above all keeps me looking good all day long. Enter Leota.
Leota's promise of effortless glamour is just what you need to keep you looking good on the go.

It seems like every week I’m asked by friends, coworkers or readers when I’m going to quit my 9-to-5 job and do this traveling thing full time. Ditching the corporate rat race while living on a tropical island while making thousands working four hours a week, isn’t that the ultimate goal of every travel blogger? While I’m inspired by those full time travelers out there I’m well aware that most of us (particularly Americans with our meager vacation time which we don’t use all of) don’t travel that way. Truth is, I rather like the dichotomy of my life-suburban physical therapist during the week and international jetsetter on the weekends. Here’s why I’m perfectly content not quitting my job to travel the world.
Working a full time job and traveling the world-can I really have it all?
