While I travel, I try to stay at unique boutique properties as well as splurge out from time to time at 5 star hotels. I also love beach shacks and heritage homes. You can find all my hotel reviews here.

Stay at an Ashram in Rishikesh, the Birthplace of Yoga

While in Rishikesh, of course I followed in the Beatles footsteps like every other traveler in India, and stayed at an ashram. There are SO many to choose from.  We across Ram Jhula to Swarg Ashram (an area, not the actual ashram). You could waste days searching for the perfect one so instead, we just

Dubrovnik: Stay at a Sobe in Old Town

When I got into green, beautiful, Croatia, I either kissed the ground, or… my imagination has warped and exaggerated the story over time. We couldn't wait to get to Dubrovnik, hoping to stay at a sobe in Old Town. Here’s the prequel: Megan and I had been traveling for over 2 days from Corfu, an

Private Secret Beach Resort in Goa

We found a secret spot in Goa. India’s pretty darn populated, so that’s saying something. Described online as a freshwater lagoon sitting just meters from the ocean, scattered with palm trees, and small tents to sleep in, your very own private secret beach resort in Goa. I guess it isn’t that secret since I found it
