hotel review barcelo occidental caribe punta cana, Occidental Caribe, review of dominican republic resort -

So this was a family trip / birthday celebration with a couple of friends from Canada. Since I'm meticulous about how I choose a resort, reviewed this one carefully online and chose this for the price and the layout of the hotel. The layout is super-important to me because if laid out correctly, the resort is more conducive to social gatherings and meeting people.We stayed for eight days. Our flight arrived quite late in the night, past midnight. Check-in was quick, and we were given an awesome room, in the middle between the two wings, on the third floor (there...

Barcelona tour, Enrique Tomas Barcelona, Foodie Barcelona, Las Ramblas, where to eat in Barcelona Spain -

I was walking endlessly, looking at all of the options for where to eat supper in the Rambla area one night. Trust me, you can walk for hours with indecision since there are so many places and they all look so good! In the meantime I needed a carb load and was drawn to the lights and setup of the restaurant front. Pork everywhere. I ended up with a small sandwich which I thought would be dry but ended up being the perfect walking sandwich. PS:  No that is not the picture of the restaurant but another similar concept where...

Circus Circus Hotel & Resort Las Vegas, hotel reviews, Las Vegas hotel review -

With one of my best friends coming into Las Vegas to renew his wedding vows after ten years of marriage, I was much obliged to go visit him and celebrate in the festivities!  Picture a pink Cadillac, an Elvis impersonator as chauffeur, and a chapel, what else could you ask for?

Chiang Mai, Chiangmai, Green Tiger Vegetarian House, Hotel Review, Thailand, Tripadvisor -

Wow.  Where do I begin?  As a world traveller and reviewer, I have many opportunities to criticize, compare, and give anything less than five stars.  For Green Tiger, I’d like to give a star ranking of “Wow”, if possible.  If you are ever going to Chiang Mai, do yourself a favor and stay here!  It was one of the most comfortable stays I’ve ever had in my life. After finding myself cracking at the seams thanks to my profession of being a lawyer, it was time for a vacation…a long one!  After winding my way through Indonesia, I found myself...

C&R massage, Chiang Mai massage, Chiang Mai spa, Thailand massage -

So I was in the mood for a facial.  Hey, can't I guy get one as well?  With so many massage places and spas every two, picking the right place can be hit or miss and really, how much research can you do?  I was originally going to go to Lila Massage Spa since they seem to get the most publicity, however I thought I'd try something else and I'm glad I did!The ladies that worked there were super friendly and helpful.  I had a lot of questions but instead of getting annoyed, they took the time to explain.  I...
