Where to Stay in Albuquerque

Each year, my husband and I travel for our anniversary. It’s more fun and exciting than giving material gifts—travel and experience are more meaningful. Sometimes it’s an epic trip like Europe (2012 and 2016), but other times it’s a weekend getaway (Tijuana 2017). This year, we pulled up the old Southwest Destination Finder and booked Rapid Rewards travel to somewhere close: Albuquerque, New Mexico. I know … Continue reading Where to Stay in Albuquerque

Link Love (5)

Normally in my Link Love posts, I connect you with a few great reads across the web.

Next time I’ll have some great reads for you, I promise.  A few of my March-April-May highlights. Oh dear, it’s been a … Continue reading Link Love (5)

Where I’ve Been – Where I’ve Loved

For the first half of this year, I actually didn’t have any big trips planned. That’s a tricky spot to be in as a travel blogger, especially as someone who prefers to write about a place I’ve actually been. Now that I do have a trip coming together for fall, I’m putting together an itinerary that will hopefully be filled with places I’ve never seen … Continue reading Where I’ve Been – Where I’ve Loved

#100

Post #100 certainly sneaked up on me! As such, I didn’t really have a chance to spend time in reflection or come up with snazzy infographics to comemorate the past 99 posts. I shared a look back at The Voyageer back in January when I reached my one-year anniversary. Reaching 1 year was a great moment for me since many blogs taper off after a … Continue reading #100

Daydreaming about where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Funny story: today I was using the Southwest Destination Finder to look up how far my Rapid Rewards miles would get me, and thinking about getting my pale booty down to Cabo San Lucas this summer. I’d abandoned my search to do some housework when my friend texted me, asking for recommendations on where to stay in Cabo. Coincidence! Naturally I spent the next hour … Continue reading Daydreaming about where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

San Miguel de Allende in One Day

You may have already heard of San Miguel de Allende; it is one of the most picturesque towns I have ever visited. I felt like I was in a movie, walking down tight streets in between colorful houses with overflowing gardens, and peeking into restaurants where locals shared a cup of coffee and gossiped. It seemed like every time I turned a corner, I encountered … Continue reading San Miguel de Allende in One Day

Guanajuato Mine Tour Options

Historically, mining has been one of the biggest economic contributors to Guanajuato, Mexico. The effect that mining has had on the city can be seen from the fine silver shops found near the Callejon del Beso, to the distinctive tunnels that route traffic off of the main roads and create a pedestrian friendly hamlet. The same technology used to bore mine shafts into the earth created the … Continue reading Guanajuato Mine Tour Options

Tijuana brands for Instagram Eye Candy

If you’re like me, you use different social media channels for different reasons. Facebook is for close friends, Twitter is for news and comedy, and Instagram is eye candy. Of course, I use instagram to find cool stuff in new cities but when a shop/restaurant has an awesome feed I add them to my normal rotation. Here are 5 brands you should follow immediately: 1. … Continue reading Tijuana brands for Instagram Eye Candy
