Souvenirs That Will Spoil You, Even Once You’re Back Home

Remember when you were a child and the only souvenir that mattered was a snow globe or a set of mouse ears?  Ah, how times have changed.  These days I’m a bit more discerning about what I’ll bring back home.

In recent years, I’ve really enjoyed looking for local beauty products.  They’re small to transport and are usually formulated with scents that remind me of  the places we visited.  I tend to look for items not readily available in the US but, fortunately, if I absolutely fall for a product, most are now available online.

Lit in Las Vegas: The Neon Museum & Boneyard

A few weeks back, I was in desperate need of a change of scenery and Natty Guy had one of his annual company Las Vegas trips coming up so I decided to hitch a ride.

Now, don’t hate, but I’m not typically a real Las Vegas kinda gal.  The artifice.  The forced fun.  The expense!  What ever happened to all those $2 steaks I heard about in the 80’s?  But….she grew on me a bit this trip.  And the Neon Museum was part of the reason why.

The UK for First Time Visitors – A Trip Fit for a Royal!

Finally, Harry & Meghan’s big weekend is upon us!  Do you plan on watching the festivities tomorrow?   Not sure I’ll get up early for it but you can be certain I’ll check it out on replay.

While the royal wedding and the arrival of Prince Louis have dominated headlines this year, interest in UK travel has surged.  For those unaccustomed to foreign travel, it’s a perfect starting point.  There is no language barrier and culture shock is minimal.  However, there are enough differences and quirks to make it feel like a “foreign” experience.  So rich in history, the UK is also a wonderful place for repeat travelers.
