Derry Jazz Festival – A Guide

If you’re considering visiting Derry for one of the city’s many festivals then I’m here to convince you that Derry Jazz Festival is the one!

The best things to do in Akko: Exploring Akko’s history, food, and more!

I stand off to the corner of the market street, peering down at the map on my phone trying to figure out which fork in the alleyway I want to take. The crowd bustling around me, a cacophony of laughter and bargaining as locals buy their vegetables and fish from the vendors. One of the vendors sees me and my map and catches my eye before pointing to the left. I smile in appreciation and tuck my phone back into my bag, choosing to trust this stranger’s sense of direction over mine as I explore...

Think Disney is just for young children? Think again! Check out my top things to do in Disney World Florida with teens below. Like many, I had preconceived ideas about Disney World.

Weekend guide to Prince Edward County wineries & more

When it comes to Canadian wine most of us tend to think of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia or Niagara on the Lake in Southern Ontario. However, on the shores of Lake Ontario is another area known for wineries (along with a few cideries and breweries as well!). This area is Prince Edward County and while it might have once been a local secret, the secret is definitely out because it’s become one of the most popular getaway destinations in Ontario. Here are my suggestions on how to...

The best things to do in Dahab, Egypt: A bohemian diver’s paradise

When it comes to travel in Egypt we tend to think of the ancient history. The pyramids and the temples. Mummies and Nile cruises. Among the enchanting ruins is a splattering of chaos, especially when it comes to Cairo. Bazaars and souks will have vendors calling after you for your business as other locals promise to take you on a special guided tour. Egypt’s main attractions are awe-inspiring and magical and I loved my time exploring them. But I also found travel in Egypt to be exhausting....

The best things to do in Eilat, Israel: Israel’s Red Sea resort city

When it comes to travel in Israel most people tend to focus on the central part of the country. Cities like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem see the majority of tourists and for those who do venture off the typical tourist trail, they tend to head north. However, the south of Israel is equally as beautiful. The sprawling deserts with red-toned mountains, vibrant blue waters of the Red Sea, and lively resort city Eilat make this part of the country a great place to explore, especially if you like warmer...
