If you have followed my blog or newsletter, then you are probably aware that I was just in Panama on a reward/incentive trip. I thought it might be time to review some of the highlights of this trip for you. This trip had so many experiences that were above any expectations and will likely have you wanting to experience Panama too!
The country of Ghana holds a special place in my heart – my family, my childhood, and my culture stems from this beautiful country. While I was the only one in my family born in the United States, I was fully raised surrounded by Ghanian culture and customs. I love that I’m from a country that has beautiful music, amazing food, funny stories, and a rich important history of Pan-Africanism. Today, I’d like to share with all of you Africa’s Golden Treasure: Ghana (and my own as well).
I’ve always been fascinated with Japan and its beautiful culture. From its language and native tongues, to its traditions and customs, Japanese culture presented an awe inspiring way of life that put it at the forefront of my bucket list. I began studying the Japanese language and culture in middle school and all throughout high school. While I haven’t continued my formal studies in university, I do continue to stay fascinated by all things Japanese. In doing this, I’ve curated a list of places and things I aim to do at least once in my lifetime. Here is my Japanese dream vacation!
While destination vacations and bucket-list adventures are always wanted and enjoyed, sometimes, we all need a quick getaway for a weekend; I know I did! One of my favorite quick-trip places is Southern California. Recently, we took a family trip to Los Angeles and even though it was for 3 days, we made it unforgettable. Here are a few notable pit stops from my West Coast weekend in SoCal.
What should you expect if you are traveling to Europe this summer or in the next few months? What are the restrictions? Where can you go? What is it like over there now in a post covid world? I thought this might be a good time for an article about traveling to Europe now.
I have been working on a wonderful trip for a client who is going to be traveling for 62 days in Europe. This trip is amazing and I cannot wait to follow along with her on her journeys. However, during our conversations packing for this trip became another conversation. Now, I am an over packer for sure and usually can’t manage packing for 3 weeks let along for 2 months. So I thought this might apply to others as well who needed some packing tips.
Well – the dreaded result. It has finally happened that I now know what it means to test positive in destination and not being able to return home. I went to Europe on an almost 3-week adventure to Italy, then the United Kingdom, both on work and pleasure! I tested before leaving the United States for Italy. It was a wonderful time in country and then I traveled along to London. Well, London has removed all restrictions and I didn’t have to test to enter the country. My family came, we had a lovely “personal” vacation before starting my next “work” trip in London. The family went home and then I got a cold. Of course, I then tested and lo and behold more than 2 years into this “COVID” situation and …. Tested positive – now what?
That is the question. A judge recently overturned the mask mandate! Yippee! Those of us who do not like wearing them are rejoicing all over, while the more cautious of travelers might still want to wear them. Luckily, now there is a choice between having to wear them and not. Which side of the fence do you fall on?
So, if you want to visit my hometown, what is there to do in this beautiful city? Well, I would be happy to help you explore this wonderful state, and more so, my town, Fort Collins, Colorado. This is a vibrant city on the Front Range (which is parallel to the mountain range). It’s a college town as well, but it’s very active with a lot to see and do.
