Take a Beach Bike Ride on St. Simons Island in Georgia

On a recent press trip to Georgia, the group of writers were given the option to rent bikes to tour St. Simons Island during their free time. Not wanting to miss any opportunity for adventure, I opted in hoping that the "it's like riding a bike" saying rings true even when the activity is actually riding a bike.  My last […]

Drink Moonshine at a Southern Low Country Boil

Any night that starts with a Moonshine tasting and ends with a tub-sized pot of cooked shellfish being dumped on a table has to be a good night. Right? Right. Tonight we would be attending a truly Southern Low Country Boil, preceded by a memorable moonshine cocktail hour, at Georgia's King & Prince Resort in St. Simons. […]

Have a Shark Encounter While Shrimping in Georgia

After my failed attempt to swim with sharks in Olowalu, I put the whole shark encounter idea on the back burner. And it was the furthest thing from my mind when we boarded the Lady Jane vessel to go shrimping in Georgia. The Lady Jane is a Georgia shrimping boat that will take up to 49 passengers […]

A Savannah Swag Bag Giveaway

I walked away from my recent Savannah Media Trip with a crap load of swag. That makes it sound like it is a bunch of poopy stuff…and it's not. It's really good junk. And even though "getting swag" is on my bucket list, there is more than I need or could possibly use. Welcome to […]

Take a Segway Glide Through Barcelona

I was slightly nervous about gliding a Segway through the narrow, cobbled streets of Barcelona. But, these dogs were barking from traipsing through the roads of London and I was happy to not be hoofing it for the next few hours, instead we were riding in luxury with Barcelona Segway Glides. Ok, maybe not luxury. But, at […]

The Mirror Hotel in Barcelona. Too Trendy?

When I research hotels, trendy and elegant are always on the top of my list. And price. I don't want to spend a lot for luxury. I'm not asking too much. Really. I spent days researching lodging in Barcelona, Spain and the winner was The Mirror Hotel in Eixample. A location decked out in pure […]

9 Things I Learned at Phoenix Comicon Convention

Let me start with admitting that I know close to nothing about comic books, zombies or science fiction. I really couldn't tell you the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars, and the last comic book I read was Archie in 1982. "Then why would you go to Comicon, a comic book convention?" you inquire. "Hello. I'm Annette, the […]

Attend a Proper British Afternoon Tea in London

A proper Afternoon Tea in London is a British tradition that I had no intention of missing out on. I like tea. And tiny little sandwiches. Little did I know, there are various tea times; Cream Tea, Low/Afternoon Tea, Elevensies, Royal Tea and High Tea. Cream Tea is a simpler version of the Afternoon Tea, Elevensies is […]

Take a Spin on the London Eye

Upon arriving to a new city, one of the first things I like to do is take a bus or boat ride, or hustle to the highest point in the city to get a grasp on my surroundings. London was no different, so I headed to the London Eye. The London Eye is a giant ferris […]

Feel the 5 Stars at London’s Royal Garden Hotel

Let me start by saying that I am not one of those girls who always has to vacation in pure luxury. I have been camping. Even peed in the woods…once. But, after staying at the Royal Garden Hotel, five stars is something that I could get used to. Easily. From London's Heathrow Airport we took the […]
