Glamping in the Smokies

It’s my family’s first time in Gatlinburg, TN. We had planned to go glamping for one night with a couple friend. We drove past these beautiful views on the way to Gatlinburg. We arrived at downtown Gatlinburg, I was surprised that there were so many things to do and see! We had lunch and strolledContinue reading “Glamping in the Smokies”

South Florida

What can I say? There’s always a reason to go back to South Florida 🙂 This time to witness a beautiful wedding. So we rented a van, brought the whole family and a friend visiting from the Philippines and drove 12 hours down south! We rented an Airbnb close to Pompano Beach. It had an indoorContinue reading “South Florida”

Primland, Meadows of Dan, VA

I have heard about Primland from a coworker and I’ve planned to go with hubby since it’s only a two-hour drive from Charlotte, NC. And finally, we were able to spend a night here, without our kid. It was a much needed break for us as a couple. At $500 or so per night, IContinue reading “Primland, Meadows of Dan, VA”

Carolina Beach

It’s summer, we can’t miss going to the beach! We’ve been to Myrtle and Hilton Head in SC in the past, we’ve lived in NC for over 5 years and we’ve never been to NC beach! So finally, we’ve decided to go to Carolina Beach with friends. We booked this Airbnb, for two nights, it’sContinue reading “Carolina Beach”

NOLA – A Girls’ Trip

A friend wanted to celebrate her birthday in New Orleans. I was hesitant to join but I am so glad I did! We arrived on a Friday evening, and first stop was Luke’s for dinner. Ambiance was nice, food was great, service wasn’t so good, our server seemed to not like us… But anyway, IContinue reading “NOLA – A Girls’ Trip”

Disney Cruise to Bahamas

This was our first cruise. I wasn’t sure what to book and where to go or what to expect. So we decided to go for a 3-night Disney Cruise to the Bahamas. We have heard so many good things about Disney Cruise. But I was still a little skeptical, after all, I’ve never been onContinue reading “Disney Cruise to Bahamas”

Carolina Hot Air Balloon Fest

It was Carolina’s 44th Hot Air Balloon Fest! I encouraged a friend to go along with me, but we had to bring her friend’s pet, so it was a little tricky. The website clearly states “THERE ARE NO PETS ALLOWED”. We took the risk, and asked the parking guys if we can stay just atContinue reading “Carolina Hot Air Balloon Fest”

Fall Foliage 2017

So, this is definitely a yearly thing for me and my family. I always drag my husband to the mountains for a quick getaway. I want to drive through Blue Ridge Parkway to see the amazing fall foliage. The leaves haven’t changed so much when we went on Oct 13th. It was also foggy, butContinue reading “Fall Foliage 2017”

A trip to Sky Top Orchard

I have heard good things about Sky Top Orchard… It’s about 2 hours from our house so I wasn’t sure hubby would agree to a day trip. I managed to convinced hubby to finally go one Saturday morning, we headed out at 8am and arrived at 10am to a parking lot full of cars! I’ve heardContinue reading “A trip to Sky Top Orchard”

Lower Antelope Canyon & Horseshoe Bend

We booked another tour from Vegas, 1-day Lower Antelope Canyon & Horseshoe Bend tour. We spent about 4 hours on the road to Horseshoe Bend. It didn’t seem too long, the picturesque drive through Utah and to Arizona was breathtaking. Once we got to Horseshoe Bend, we had to hike up about a mile, toContinue reading “Lower Antelope Canyon & Horseshoe Bend”
