Straddling the US/Canada border, the Thousand Islands region sits on the Saint Lawrence River. This archipelago boasts over 1,800 islands, varying in size from barely-enough-room-to-stand to over 40 square miles. Whether you’re exploring on the water or spending time in the towns dotting both shores, there’s plenty to do and see in the Thousand Islands. […]
Some months ago, I spent a few days in Atlanta for work. A cursory search for offbeat and budget-friendly attractions showed me that Atlanta is home to a bevy of impressive street art, and I knew I had to make time to see some. With the limited time I had in the ATL, I was […]
There’s so much that we loved about our stay at the Royalton Riviera Cancún! In this post, we’re going to focus on the property amenities, including the food. Find out what we liked (and what could be better!)
Coming from New York, Cancún proved to have the most affordable flight options for a luxury tropical vacation for our family of five. We’d be able to fly there and stay at an all-inclusive 4-5 star resort with family-friendly amenities. In addition to being within our allotted budget, the Royalton Riviera Cancun caught my eye.

Nearly 40 million US residents travel internationally every year. While the chances are very good that you’ll never experience actual trouble while traveling, you should familiarize yourself with travel safety basics so that you can be informed while you roam, and you can wander more confidently.
El Rey archaeological site doesn’t get anywhere near as much fanfare as its larger cousins but it is significant in its own right.
With only four full days and an entire resort’s worth of all-inclusive amenities to enjoy, I was extra picky about what we wanted to do on our two designated days off-property. Xel-Há and Xcaret came up multiple times in conversations with friends stateside— they just loved both of these parks when they visited Cancún!
Located conspicuously off-strip and bright enough to read by, the Neon Museum sits on the very edge of the tourist-trekked portion of Las Vegas.
It’s July. This post is obviously late. Please forgive the transgression! A couple of years ago, we decided that it was time to learn to snowboard before it was too late. We didn’t want to look back a few years from now and regret not having tried it in our relative youth. And let’s be real— osteoporosis/bone density […]
One of our favorite cold-weather pastimes is to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. We’re about an hour n’ a half away from Midtown Manhattan by car, so day trips to the city are a welcome treat! Every time we visit, we discover and rediscover awe-inspiring art from throughout history. The […]
The bats under the Congress Avenue Bridge are an iconic and ubiquitous Austin feature. The bats in Austin are represented in so much of the culture and media surrounding the city, and the sight is truly breathtaking.
A Day and a Half on South Padre Island Twice a year, my colleagues and I get together for a week of coworking. For our most recent retreat, we left our respective corners of North America and met in Austin, Texas (home of our official headquarters). To me, weekends are for exploring, and I wanted […]
Yup, traveling can be stressful, especially when it’s work-related air travel. Working for a remote company, there are only a few times each year for the whole team to connect in real life. Spending some real-life face time means traveling to our semi-annual company retreats. Our retreats are awesome, but let’s face it— the actual traveling […]
