Lanzarote – The Windy Isle

This is a guest post by Charlotte Kay. Whenever I’ve been to Lanzarote I’ve returned somewhat wind-swept, even in July, but I didn’t care, because I’d had such a good time “and the bonus of it all was that the wind helped my tan no end! Costa Teguise is a great destination for those that don’t want hustle and bustle, but want to be close enough to experience it. I visited nearby Puerto Del Carmen for night-life on a few […]

Brussels: Where The King Lives vs. Where The King Works

Only in Kauai

Kauai–Picturesque, serene and quiet, it’s hard to find fault with the Garden Isle. I love each and every one of the Hawaiian Islands, but Kauai offers a bit more laid back and autonomous experience. As the backdrop for many films and TV shows, Kauai has the reputation of unparalleled beauty and a slower pace of life.  After bustling Oahu and romantic Maui, Kauai is a welcome respite from many of the tourist traps, especially at the fabulous Kauai Beach Resort.
