Still at Home-Getting more crazy every day!

I'm bored and now taking pictures of my home. Love the bubbles!


Is next year, your year to see the Big 5? The Big 5 refer to the most sought after animals on safari, which include the Lion, the Elephant, the Rhinoceros, the Water Buffalo and the Leopard.

I have done safaris twice now and thought my days of safari were over, but I think I have 1 more safari in me. So I have compiled a list of the top 10 safari operators in Africa to see where my next safari will take me. Take a look at their websites, maybe you will be inspired to take a safari too!



How does an All Inclusive Vacation Sound? There are so many to choose from. From Luxury to Value! They are offered all over the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica, Cayman Islands and Bermuda.

A week of sun and fun is what we all need-a little beach time.

Today, I am going to tell you about the various Sandals properties. The Sandals resorts are all 5-Star Adults Only Luxury properties: In Jamaica: Sandals Negril, Sandals Royal Plantation, Sandals Ochi, Sandals Royal Caribbean, & Sandals South Coast. In the Bahamas, they have the Royal Bahamian and Emerald Bay. In Saint Lucia, there is the Regency La Toc, Grande St. Lucian & Halcyon Beach. In Antigua, there is the Grande Antigua and in Grenada, well, it's just the Sandals Grenada. In Barbados, there is the Sandals Barbados and the Royal Barbados.

Each resort is all inclusive of course, but they are each so different. At the Montego Bay Resort, it is considered the Big Party Resort, adults only. Royal Caribbean Resort, you will find luxurious Over-The-Water Bungalows, plus it has its own private island to sail off too! The Negril Resort is on the 7-mile beach is also an adults only property-the best way to express this: for fun-loving pleasure seekers-I think that says it all! The newest property South Coast is on a 500-acre nature preserve and features three distinctive European Villages-again adults only. The Ochi Beach Resort is a true Garden of Eden, encompassing over 100 acres, but sounds like more of a Singles Go To with 11 bars and 16 restaurants-adults only. The Royal Plantation-Sandals-Only All-Butler, All-Suite Resort is a favorite hideaway for the international jet set-adults only.

The Royal Bahamian in Nassau, Bahamas is a Sophisticated European Resort with its own offshore Island-Adults only and the Sandals Emerald Bay is located in the Exuma, Bahamas with an award-winning golf course-adults only.

In Saint Lucia, all of the properties, share restaurants, allowing you to visit 27 restaurants during your stay. Regency La Toc is a 220 acre estate, with all ocean front suites. Grande St. Lucian features Over-The-Water Bungalows with the calmest waters in all of St. Lucia. The Halcyon Beach Resort featuring Butler Suites, Gourmet Dining and a turquoise sea.

The Grande Antigua has been voted the "World's Most Romantic Resort" year after year. Offering hillside villas by-the-sea, at the Mediterranean Oceanview Village.

Sandals Grenada offers pools in the sky and living rooms in swimming pools. Private plunge pools, cascading waterfalls and meandering river pools.

In Barbados, the 2 properties are linked together, but booked separately. One with lots of American type activities, but also offering Millionaire Suites, Skypool Suites & Swim-Up Suites.


So nobody has paid me to talk about their properties, I just want to inspire you to travel somewhere. Keep reading, sharing, liking.
