Riding the Napa Valley Wine Train

As soon as my bags landed in Northern California, I knew I had to give Napa Valley wine country a visit. Being a bit of a self-indulgent whino, it would be blasphemous not to. Even better than just taking a drive and enjoying the scenic views to the area, I was also partaking in a […]

What’s the number one thing to do in Greece? Partying at Cavo Paradisio in Mykonos! The rest of the time at Mykonos was spent exploring and hitting up the day clubs all dotted along the edge of the island.  We were able to hit up one – Cavo Paradiso where we had a very crazy […]

Greece: Hotel Palladium Mykonos Review

Our first hotel was Hotel Palladium Mykonos! We chose a 5-star hotel that was reasonably priced called Hotel Palladium Mykonos. We found the deal on Expedia but chose to book directly through the hotel which had one  of the rooms at the same price (luckily).I have a weird thing about booking directly through the hotel rather than […]
