As some of you may already know, I had the amazing experience of getting to cross a bucket list destination off this month by getting to visit Tokyo for the very first time. And let me tell you, the trip is one that I will remember for the rest of my life. However, before I took off, I was a little worried about visiting for the first time. I’ve traveled plenty of times before, but going to a city alone where English is far from the primary language and I also had little to no Japanese vocabulary of my own, can be a little intimidating. But the moment I got to the MOXY Tokyo Kinshicho, I knew that my worries of not being able to communicate were immediately going to be put to rest.
Recently, I took a trip with my good friend Gracie in order to explore Maine for a week on a sailboat. And yes, it was amazing. Now, being seasoned experts in travel, at eating copious amounts of food and in general good-time having, our focus was on maximizing these skills on this trip. I’ve been on a few adventures with Gracie in the past, but hadn’t really realized how well we travel together until it was just the two of us. We have similar interests, the same “old lady style” schedule and we both have that easy going, yet organized nature while on the go.
It was a pretty big night in Vancouver on October 20th, let me tell you. Stars from all over the globe came together to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the David Foster Foundation, presented by Parq Vancouver, the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver and The DOUGLAS. And guess what? We got to be there to live it up with them! Yes, I was in the same room as Oprah. Yes, The Oprah.
Last week, I was whisked off to Kelowna for a couple of days with the promise of beer to drink and great food to eat. Now, that’s more than enough incentive to get me to travel out to the west coast of Canada – which holds a very special place in my heart. But when they asked me to travel out there to sample some local craft beers for the Four Points Best Brew Global Tour, how could I say no? I mean, come on now. I’m only human.
