We all love hanging out with people we care about in Las Vegas, but sometimes a little "alone time" is critical. Here's a post on how to make that happen.

I seriously loved Croatia, even though I didn't have a lot of time there.
All it takes is a few hours to fall in love with the beauty of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

If planning a trip to Venice, Italy is giving you sticker shock, you might consider staying in Mestre instead. Here's why:
For those visiting Venice on a shoestring budget, staying on the mainland in Mestre can be a very cost-effective alternative.

The Bellagio Conservatory in Las Vegas has moved on from summer to fall now, but I still can't forget this year's super creative underwater theme.
Photos from this past summer's Bellagio Conservatory display, which was their most creative yet.

I've been a travel blogger for so long, most of my "vacations" over the past 7 years have been working vacations, as I've tried to cram in as much as possible to gather content for my blogs. This time, I took a real vacation with lots of downtime. It was glorious. I may never go back to working vacations again.
A recap of my recent trip to Las Vegas, in words, photos, and tweets.

i hope this convinces some Vegas visitors to get off the Strip for at least part of a day. The desert around Vegas is so beautiful.

Nostalgia vs. Reality: Sometimes, our memories play tricks on us when we think back fondly on places we once loved during travel. Sometimes, it's not a good idea to revisit them.
Updated review of Harrahs Las Vegas based on my January 2015 stay. Sometimes, you really can't go home again.

I'm getting very excited about my upcoming cruise. It feels like I've been planning this trip for a year. Oh wait, I have. :-)
