    Captivated by Captiva Island, Florida

    Disclosure: My trip to Captiva Island was sponsored by the Ft Myers Sanibel Tourism Board. Is there a place in the world that you return to over and over and over again? While I absolutely LOVE exploring new places, one place that stole my heart from an early age (think: literally 1 year old) was Captiva Island. Just off the coast of mainland Florida, this little island just 1.2 miles square is the place where my family would return every year, year after year. It was the place where my mother, sister, and I would take girls trips to chill by the pool, eat delicious food in fun environments, and…

Bali is so much more than what you see on Instagram, and the Total Bali Food Tour that I took with Urban Adventures really showed me that. Yes, there are rice terraces, cafes, and the rest.

    Experiencing the Best Seminyak Spas on Urban Adventures’ VW Kombi Spa Safari

    ***Disclaimer: I was a guest of Urban Adventures on their VW Kombi Spa Safari tour to Seminyak spas. All opinions are my own.*** When it comes to Seminyak, Bali, I think of one thing: spas. Yes, the whole island is known for its spas, but there’s something about the upscale-yet-affordable aspect of Seminyak spas that makes them so (deservedly) popular. Of course, just setting out for a simple spa day in Seminyak isn’t exactly my style. If I’m going to experience the best spas in Seminyak, I’m going to go all in. But how the heck are you even supposed to go “all in” when it comes to spas? Turns…
