I don't know about you but when I vacation, I go hard. I eat as much as I can, drink more than I would normally and sleep as little as possible. It's all great and dandy until I get home feeling sad and disgusting. While I've already shared tips on How to Survive the Post-Vacation Blues, I thought I would share how I physically detox and get back on track.
If I could pick my favorite thing about having this blog, it's meeting new travelers and making friends. When Erin e-mailed me about Featured Friends, I was SO happy! I visited her blog and loved it. Sure, she's a new Travel Blogger but just by reading her posts and photos, you can tell she's going to be one of the best!
Erin's from Australia (hoping we can hang out when I'm there at the end of this year!), was a ski instructor, paramedic and a stewardess on a yacht! Whaaat? So cool right? Keep reading to get to know her!
So, it's February which means we have to address that big pink and red, sugary sweet elephant in the room. Everywhere you go, you see heart shaped boxes filled with an assortment of chocolate, obnoxiously sappy love cards, and teddy bears as big as you. As if that isn't bad enough, you are probably being bombarded with questions from your friends, family, coworkers, and everyone else you happen to come into contact with about how you are going to celebrate *cue the dramatic sound effect: dun dun duuunnn* Valentine's Day. Fret not if you are single and a little bit more on the sour side rather than sweet this year. The Museum of Broken Relationships of Los Angeles has got your back for this Anti-Valentine's Day!
You're finally booked for that first business trip you've been longing for all these years. Whether it's for training or a client visit, it's always exciting to think about packing your carry-on and finally finding a reason to use all the sample size beauty products you've accumulated from Sephora.
Leisure travel is great, right? You boss signs off on your vacation request, you happily turn on your Out-Of-Office, tell your assistant to text you only in an emergency and boom, you're on glorious vacation. You get to focus on fun activities you'll do, where you'll take the perfect Instagram shot and what dollar amount threshold you have for giving up your seat for an overbooked flight.
Destinations, Featured, Japan
No, no one thinking of visiting Japan thinks, "I'm definitely hitting up Suwa". I mean, I was born and raised in Tokyo, lived there until I was 18 and I didn't know where Suwa was until a couple of weeks before we went.
Suwa is a small town in the Nagano Prefecture in Japan. They're known for their hot springs, although not as well known as Hakone. Again, it's not a tourist destination but my family and I loved that about it. If you're looking for a spot that's less traveled to, a quiet place with good Japanese food, enjoy nature and relax in hot springs, it's the perfect place.
