The Blogtastic TBEX’13 Toronto thumbnail

When I made plans to come home for my sister’s college graduation, I was elated to see that TBEX was taking place the next week in Toronto. Last year’s TBEX in Colorado was one of the highlights of my year, and I vowed to make it part of my 2013 travel schedule as well. To be…

Diving in Nusa Lembongan thumbnail

While I found peace and hints of paradise on land in Nusa Lembongan, the real reason for visiting has more to do with what’s below the water’s surface. The majority of my friends in Southeast Asia work in the diving industry, and over and over again I had heard them sing the praises of the diving…

Just a few hours after landing at JFK international…

The All Inclusive Experience: The Grand Mirage in Bali thumbnail

Until recently, I wavered between the two without having any actual experience to base my opinions on. Sure, I went on an all inclusive cruise with my mom and loved it…

A Ninety Minute Tour of Indonesia at the Devdan Show thumbnail

Though I have yet to see a Cirque de Soleil show — something I’m eager to cross off my bucket list — I have been seen many shows along the same vein in my international travels. First I attended Vivendi Cabaret in The Cayman Islands, followed by Smile of Angkor in Cambodia, and finally Siam Niramit in…
