Searching Within You!

One night in Costa Rica my thoughts were every where as I swung back and forth in my hammock. I reflected on my day and how I wished I had a few more days at the lovely bungalow at Rancho Margot. My thoughts went from what I did that day, when will I visit the lovely Costa Rica again, my love life, my career, family, and my future. My thoughts started racing so much that I placed them on paper, and I now I want to share them with you…

This is where I sat in the middle of the night writing.

Must See Mexico City: 10 Days in a Culture Capital by Danna Sweidan

Before we go over the itinerary that Sam and I used, I’d like to give five general tips about traveling to Mexico City too.

Tip 1.

The weather is mostly mild and sunny year round, but the altitude (over 7000 ft above sea level) means it’s windy and sudden storms can take you by surprise— bring easy layers and comfortable tennis shoes.

Tip 2.

Don’t try to dress down here. By all means wear whatever you please, but know that Mexico City is very well dressed, basically everywhere. The only place I didn’t see blazers was hiking Teotihuacan’s pyramids.

Tip 3.

Many restaurants are wonderful here, but the magic is in the carts. Almost every street cart and bodega is making delicious, fresh meats and tortas. You’ll see tents full of suited lunch break bankers sitting on plastic stools huddled over a plate of steaming al pastor tacos. Trust these tents, and walk up to them as often if not more than you would Yelp a place first.

Tip 4.

We walked nearly everywhere, but this is a massive city. Continue reading “Must See Mexico City: 10 Days in a Culture Capital by Danna Sweidan”

Tabitha is very dedicated to what she does; she believes her work is God’s calling. A traditional 9 AM to 5 PM  job is not her dream.

What’s In My Travel Bag

When traveling I tend to put so much junk into my bag because I always think when I don’t pack something I am going to need it. Therefore, when I travel I have to strategically think of things I will need and things I can do without. When traveling by flight you become limited on what can go into a carry-on or personal item; shout out to TSA for keeping me in check with over stuffing. LOL! Anyway, my recent travels took me to LA, California  and I wanted to share the few things I carried in my personal travel bag.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Waving goodbye to 2017 and saying HELLO to 2018! At the beginning of each year several people go into the ” New Year, New Me” phase. For me, in 2018 I am pushing myself to follow through with my goals and dreams, become financially stable, and handle my mental and emotional stress in a different way.

2017 was a year of me going through hardship, understanding, self-love, and knowing when enough is enough. I struggled with staying on top of my finances and not really planning things out. I struggled with understanding what was for me and what was not for me which pushed me into “self-love” mode. Enough is enough Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

Hotel Biba in West Palm Beach, Florida

While in search for somewhere to stay for just a night in West Palm Beach, Florida I came across Hotel Biba. It was the only hotel out of many that I called who had an opening for the night.
The hotel is very historical  and quaint. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

I just want to share the photos I took during my stay.
