Where to Eat in Aruba

By |2018-06-02T10:02:35-05:00June 2nd, 2018|Categories: Traveling Foodie|

We have come to my favorite part of any trip recap, THE FOOD! With a crew of eleven people I knew I had to do research beforehand and reserve as many tables as possible before we arrived.  With google and a little bit of luck while on the island, we found a few great restaurants that I highly recommend.  Before I jump in to all of the goods on this Where to Eat in Aruba post please note that we ate outside at night a lot, as such photos were nearly impossible so this will not be much a visual [...]

In the weeks leading up to my trip to Aruba, work had been CRAZY busy.   As I sat at my desk counting down the days till Aruba, all I could think was "rest and relaxation."  So I set out to find the excursions that offered just that.  At first glance De Palm Island looked more like an island paradise for families.  A little digging and a found enough to convince me that De Palm was perfect for our travel crew as well!

When my aunts picked Aruba for our next family vacation, I thought "what is there to do there besides the beach?"  Per usual, I hit google to find all of the things that make Aruba unique!  While I did not do it all, here is my list of Things to See and Do in Aruba! Must See: On any trip to a new place one of my excursions is always a city/island highlight tour.  For Aruba, we booked a tour through Pelican Adventures.  We had a few mishaps with the booking process but in the end the tour was worth [...]

Blackity Black Events for 2022

By |2022-05-30T23:09:42-05:00December 23rd, 2021|Categories: Traveling Foodie|

Listen, I will travel to just about anywhere for any type of event if it has good food, people and fun activities.   But, events that cater to black folks hold a special place in my heart and will shoot right to the top of my “must visit” list.  After visiting events like Essence Festival several times, the inaugural Family Reunion or a good ole HBCU football classic, I started thinking about what are the quintessential black events.  I polled my audience and did some googling as well.  Here are some of the events I came up i.e. Blackity Black [...]

Last week, I hit George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) with a boarding pass in hand, butttt did not take a flight.  What happened next was probably the coolest blogger event to date, a tasting tour of Houston's International Airport! While it was odd being at the airport and not taking a flight, it was so much fun. So follow me for my Tour & Taste Through IAH Terminal E with United Airlines and OTG (the brains behind the culinary operations!) Yume   Our first stop, Yume is a beautiful restaurant serving great Asian food to passengers.  This ain't your typical [...]

Travel Guides Roundup

By |2017-08-08T09:15:22-05:00August 8th, 2017|Categories: Top Lists, Traveling Foodie|

So I like to travel, shocking I know!  For me, planning a trip can take months.  After I have scored my flight, I begin in-depth research about the new place I am going.  Most folks go to your big travel websites like Trip Advisor for reviews and guidance. I do too, because they are very helpful, but my favorite source of travel advice? Other bloggers! I honestly spend more time now searching Pinterest and my friends' blogs looking for information for my next trip.  I decided to share the wealth and drop a Travel Guides Roundup featuring my fellow Houston [...]
