Cancún: You’ve Never Seen The Caribbean Like This Before

Image by Sasin Tipchai from Pixabay One of the most recognizable images of Mexico is the Sonoran Desert. Very hot, desolate land with miles and miles of dry cracked landscape. It’s an inhospitable climate and would leave you with the impression that Mexico is a tough place to consider a holiday destination. Yet, don’t forget that Mexico is very large and long. It may be dry and hot in the north but down south is full of vibrancy and light blue ocean waters. Tropical in every sense of the word, it’s pure paradise in a place like Cancun. This city is situated on …

Photo by Jacky Huang on Unsplash Canada – wildlife, the nicest people you can find, a mix of languages and of course all of that fantastic scenery. So if you are planning on taking a vacay any time soon, or in the future, then you might want to consider Canada.  Manitoba You might’ve heard about an island in Sweden that has more polar bears than people, but did you know that you can get up close(ish) to a polar bear in Manitoba.

Don’t Let These Excuses Limit Your Travel Dreams

Image by DarkWorkX from Pixabay Many of us dream about traveling. We imagine ourselves on sun-soaked beaches. We long for the adventures that can be experienced in faraway countries. We eagerly listen to the stories of our friends and neighbors who have taken the time to see the world. We wonder what life might be like in Thailand, Paris, and Japan.

5 Things Visitors Must Do at Panama City Beach

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Visit Panama City Beach. All opinions are 100% mine. As many of you know, I am a Houstonian.

Nothing also compared to the loving community that rose to support one another as well. My friends in Florida experienced the same devastation just last year during Hurricane Michael. But …
