Marrakech Photo-Diary
  I spent an incredible month in Marrakech Morocco, also known as "The Red City". I had been seeing photos and hearing of Marrakech for some time now, and wanted to experience this place for myself badly so was elated when I finally touched down. In some ways it was as I expected - amazing markets filled with treasures, stunning interior design and detail,…

Marrakech to Merzouga

Marrakech to Merzouga
  I’d been wanting to go to the desert since arriving in Marrakech, so my boyfriend Alex and I decided to take a little road trip from Marrakech to the Merzouga desert, which is about an 11-hour drive. The drive itself is incredibly scenic as you go through amazing mountain ranges, nomadic Berber villages, and dramatic desert landscape! The first day we drove about…

Casa Telmo

Casa Telmo
Whenever I travel I always try to seek out interesting hotels to stay at. I’m not really a fan of big resort chains, as you don’t really get a very personalized or unique experience when you stay there. On a recent trip to Menorca, I did some research and found an adorable little B&B called Casa Telmo. Upon arriving I was warmly greeted by…

Barcelona From The Top

Barcelona From The Top
  I love a good rooftop in the summer. A place to escape to from the bustling city below and have a cocktail and watch the sunset while looking out over the landscape. I especially love discovering cool rooftops when I travel, as most cities have them. I’ve been in Barcelona most of this summer, and I’ve discovered a few rooftops that I absolutely…

Coqui Coqui Perfumeria
I had been wanting to stay at Coqui Coqui for a while but when I finally got around to going to Tulum they had already closed their doors. That was their original location that they closed due to political issues. But since then they have opened many other locations in the Yucatan, and I decided to add a day onto my last trip to…

Isla Holbox

Experiences, Travel
Isla Holbox
Holbox (pronounced Hol-bosh) is a small island in the Yucatan region of Mexico. The best way to get here is to fly into Cancun and drive to Chiquila, which takes about 2 hours driving. From Chiquila you take a quick 20-minute ferry and then arrive to this adorable little laid back piece of paradise. After arriving, I hopped on my golf cart taxi (main…

An Artistic Retreat in Holbox
  When I arrived to CasaSandra by golf cart in Holbox, Mexico, my first thought was ahhhhh. The beautiful white stucco building with a thatched roof, surrounded by hammocks and white sand. Then, you turn around and you see the beautiful blue ocean just steps away from the hotel. This is paradise I thought. Inside the main reception/dining area is so warm and inviting…

Snapshot of Costa Rica
    I’d been curious about Costa Rica for a few years, always hearing about the lush jungles, eco-lodges, surfing and yoga, so I finally decided to check it out for myself and see what this Pura Vida lifestyle was all about. After some research and speaking to friends I decided to take a quick trip to Nosara, a laid-back bohemian surfer town located…

As you can tell from reading my blog, I love to talk about hotels. When we travel, where we stay can have such an impact on our trip. If you really love your hotel, then the trip is usually much better. Your hotel is like your home, it’s where you come back to every evening and wake up each morning (hopefully ;). When I…

Le Sereno St. Barth’s
St. Barth’s is an island that’s nothing short of chic and luxurious. I always enjoy visiting this French island and unwinding at one of the many beautiful hotels, which are small and mostly privately owned. One of my favorites is Le Sereno. This family owned hotel, located on a pristine private beach, is absolutely stunning. Upon walking in through the reception and out onto…
