Swim With Whale Sharks. Cancun, Mexico.

I am not a huge fan of cilantro, raw tomatoes, spicy food, tequila shots or wearing sombreros, which is why traveling to the touristy towns in Mexico is typically not high on my list. But, there was something in Cancun that I would eat a habanero pepper covered in tomato salsa while wearing a silly […]

A new, and very colorful, contest is running rampant over the web, TravelSupermarket.com created the Capture the Colour contest. It’s simple, there are 5 colors, you choose five memorable photos to represent each. Piece of cake. Whoa. Not that easy. If you are anything like me, you will be sifting through thousands of photos, reminiscing along the way.  Many […]

Eat Dollar Cactus Street Tacos in Mexico

Prior to my visit to La Bufadora in Mexico, the only street food I have ever partaken in was the must-have hot dog from a vendor on the streets of New York City, mostly because it had "Bucket List Opportunity" written all over it. 9 times out of 10 I will opt for a dining experience at a sit-down […]

Attend a Sexy White Party on a Ship

I spent a week trying to find a white outfit for the Kandy Kruise all white party, which is actually a difficult task in September. The whole no-white-after Labor Day rule didn't play in my favor. There was no HOT white attire to be found at any of my go-to shops. So, I resorted to a stripperesque […]

See the Blow Hole at La Bufadora in Mexico

At the end of my Ensenada excursion haggling through the La Bufadora flea market, there was another new adventure waiting. Mexico was home to the second largest blow hole in the world and we were going to see it spout off. I was excited even though I had no idea what a blow hole was. But, shooting water has to be […]

Haggle at La Bufadora Market in Ensenada, Mexico

I am not good at haggling…unless I feel like I am getting ripped off. Then, I will spend hours negotiating a deal that the sales person didn't even think was possible. I am cheap. Or rather frugal. I just don't understand why people don't list the actual price of an item instead of chasing me down […]

Vacation with a Complete Stranger

I woke up the morning of the Karma Foundation Kandy Kruise filled half with giddy excitement and half with “crap what have I gotten myself into now.” Not only am I attending the ultimate Vegas/Playboy party where all the girls will be half my age and flaunting their cellulite-free bodies, but I am also vacationing […]

A Playboy Party was NEVER on my Bucket List, but…

An unexpected invitation to a "Playboy Party" Kandy Kruise (a cross between mansion party and Vegas nightclub on steroids) came my way from a fellow blogger, reader & bucket lister, Megsy Ellis. I had always wanted to meet an online acquaintance, especially one who is as obsessed as me with ticking items off her life list. Throw in a […]

Cruise Ship Food for the Culinary Snob

I had heard a lot about the cruising lifestyle and contemplated if this would be a vacation style that would suit the foodie in me. I couldn't imagine not loving boating around the ocean with exotic ports to choose from, nightly entertainment already planned for me and thousands of people who could potentially turn into […]
