Private Island Paradise in Belize

Private Island Paradise in Belize

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine myself on a private island paradise in Belize. The Central American country had been on my travel list for years since I’m a certified scuba diver – did you know that the second largest barrier reef in the world (after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia) is just off the coast of Belize? My company (I’m a travel advisor!) was lucky enough to receive an invite for 3 nights on Royal Belize Private Island…I’m still in disbelief that I got to go! Royal Belize is a private island buyout which means that only one party can use it at a time, whether it’s one couple (hello unbelizeable honeymoon!) or a multi-generational family or group of friends. The island can easily accommodate 10 adults and varies when kids are thrown into the mix. There are various ways to get to the island depending […]

Hi everyone! I’m here to explain why I’ve been so MIA the last 3+ months and to fill you in on what’s been happening with me in Atlanta. As some of you may know, I moved to Atlanta last October without a job, and only a faint idea of what I wanted to do for my career: social media/marketing or something in the travel industry. I didn’t have a very clear idea of where my life was about to take me. Thankfully, after two months applying to every job I could find, I began researching what travel advisors do in today’s day and age. This is the vision I had in my head: travel advisors sitting in their respective cubicles staring at their computers all day, every day. The career didn’t appeal to me but I had hit a dead-end in my job search. I interviewed with two agencies and […]

What did I even do?” That’s me today, I’m sitting here trying to remember everything I did and I’m coming up blank. I must have done something, right? Let’s see if I can retrace my steps. Over the weekend we got started repairing our deck, with the help of a family friend/actually qualified builder. Matt and I have been testing out our apprentice skills and, I’m pretty sure my work ethic combined with my excellent tea making abilities has been me in the top spot for #1 apprentice. Though, Matt does bring serious upper body strength. We tried to ask our friend who he’d hire out of the two of us and were met with an awkward look and a quick change of subject, which either means A) he knows damn well who he’d choose and doesn’t want to hurt Matt’s feelings, or, B) he thinks we’re both idiots and wouldn’t [...]

You may remember from last fall that I spend time with family in Jackson Hole, Wyoming a few times a year. We always go for Christmas and so do my extended family. It’s such a fun week! Before Atlanta warms up too much {let’s be honest, warm up now please!}, I wanted to take the time to share photos from the week. Plus I saw that Wyoming got more snow over the last few days! Here’s photos from the winter wonderland in Jackson Hole over Christmas: Some of my family skis and some of my family snowboards but we always head down the hill together! We had multiple feet of snow within 24 hours so the fresh powder on the mountain was amazing. On a day off from skiing and snowboarding, my mom, sister and I walked around town.

5 Easy tips to save money & plan an amazing Japan trip!

5 Easy tips to save money & plan an amazing Japan trip!

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

When people ask me what my favourite place I’ve ever visited is, Japan is always one of the top three spots I mention (the other two are Iceland and Morocco). There’s just something magical about Japan – the people are so lovely and kind, they’re beautiful, quirky and always up for fun. The food is incredible, a mix of modern wonder and time-honoured cooking techniques. The streets are neon bright with karaoke bars and whisky clubs a stone’s throw from temples and pockets of history.  Away from Tokyo, you can discover the secrets of Okinawa‘s centenarians, make the most of miles of fresh powder in Hakuba or wander the famed bright red gates of Kyoto’s iconic Shinto shrine. With so many cheap airfares to Japan popping up at the moment, it makes sense to take advantage and start planning a trip. Honestly, though, Japan ain’t exactly renowned for being budget friendly. So, here are my top five tips to save money and plan an amazing trip to Japan! 1. See more, for less A tour is a great way to save money and see more! Now, look, don’t let the word ‘tour’ turn you off by immediately conjuring up images [...]

The Week That Was #38

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

A look at the week that was and a little insight into the #bloglife, sharing things I just can’t share anywhere else! Highlights of the week Without a doubt, the most exciting thing to happen this week is our lovely little kitten coming home! Yesterday afternoon Matt and I went to pick her up and she is purrrrfect. Like our other girl, Figgy, she’s a Cornish Rex. If you haven’t heard much about them before, they’re really sweet, loving cats with big personalities. I’ve heard them described as quite dog-like and like cheeky little monkeys – which is all true. They’re also super soft with little curls. We brought that baby home last night and she’s fitting in really well. A few hisses between her and Figgy but nothing out of the ordinary. They’re doing really well and I’m pretty sure they’ll be getting on like best friends within a few weeks. The little one was a bit shy but she’s getting more and more confident and even had a little play this morning. She’s super smoochy and loves tummy rubs and loads of kisses. We don’t have a name for her just yet. It always takes a little while to get a [...]

A Perfect Weekend in Antwerp

by Marijs @ Rooftop Antics

There is one Belgian city that holds a special spot in my heart, Antwerp. It is the Fashion and Diamond capital of Belgium and it is such an awesome city. Antwerp is all about fashion, hip new coffee bars and has an excellent nightlife. Having lived here for five years, I've spent many perfect weekends here between my 9 to 5. Therefore it's the ideal city to spend a weekend away from home.

The best time to visit most European cities is in the summer time and this is no different for Antwerp. With pop-up concepts spread all across the city and plenty of greenery, the city is lively, exciting and relaxing all at once. With Belgian's national holiday coming up on the 21st of July, I decided to create my perfect weekend in Antwerp. It was so difficult to pick and choose as there is so much more to experience. This weekend is pretty perfect as it is, but I do think you should come back one day and do the rest. I hope you enjoy it! Continue Reading

I visited Ubud the very first time I was in Bali in July 2016 as one of my last Southeast Asian destinations before returning home from my year as an expat in Vietnam.

Since it is a such a popular Balinese destination for travelers, it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of hotels to choose from. I have my favorites after my visit – of course every client is different, so one person may love hotel A, while another client loves hotel B. While I can count a handful of Ubud hotels I love for clients, two of my favorite hotels are the COMO […]

My New Favorite Island: Harbour Island

My New Favorite Island: Harbour Island

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

I discovered my new favorite destination this past April when I went on a long weekend away with my mom and sister: Harbour Island. This tiny little island only takes about 5 minutes to walk the width of at its center but there is surprisingly a lot of activity on this hidden gem. Plus the beaches aren’t hard on the eyes either…Harbour Island is dotted with colorful buildings covered in tropical blooms. We spent hours driving around our rental golf cart trying to decide which house we would live in if we moved here in our dreams.The crystal blue water is a sight to see in and of itself. If you look close enough, you can tell that the sand on the beach is pink! The pink of the sand doesn’t appear as vivid in photos but in person, especially at sunset, it’s a fun touch added to the island.  […]

How to Fika like a local (and the best places in Stockholm)

How to Fika like a local (and the best places in Stockholm)

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

One of the wonderful things about travel is the unique cultural experiences you get to witness and take part in. Of all the wonderful, weird and unique cultural pastimes I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying, Sweden’s beloved Fika is by far my favourite. In it’s simplest form, Fika is a coffee break. But it really is so much more than that, it’s a chance to slow down, disconnect from everything else and connect with the person in front of you or simply reconnect with yourself. It’s not about quickly slurping down a takeaway cup of coffee and chewing down a pastry while running between meetings, it’s about sitting down to enjoy every drop of your del@icious coffee and savour each bite of your perfect pastry. It’s about community, connection and being present. Unexpectedly, I began to look forward to Fika each day during our time in Stockholm and the Stockholm Archipelago. Each time we’d see our guide from Visit Stockholm her first question would be, “Have you had a Fika yet?” When we’d go to a new hotel, cafe or attraction, the lovely locals would always ask, “Do you need a Fika?” In those moments, you get the sense your [...]

Tokyo

by noreply@blogger.com (Jonathan Goldberg) @ A Lifeless Ordinary

Since we had begun both the hypothetical planning 5 years ago and actual planning earlier this year, there was one place that Hannah insisted we go. She didn't know why she wanted to go to Japan, she just knew that she did. There was something very different about the thought of Japan, something elusive and culturally intriguing. My response to her common pleas to visit Japan were usually "sure, if we can go to Tokyo Disneyland". The moment we touched down in Japan after our harrowing journey through the Gili Islands we were transported. Transported into a land of zen, a land where personal space is a virtue, where manners and politeness are expected and bidets are common even in the most obscure restrooms.

Our initial stay in Japan was planned for 10 days. Within 12 hours (8 of them sleeping in our windowless shoebox hotel in Shinjuku) we decided that we needed more time. We needed to immerse ourselves, travel, meet monks, buy beer from vending machines, see baseball games, and interact with as many locals as possible. We changed our plans to stay a full month at breakfast that first morning. Hannah had done a ton of research on what to eat, where to go, what to see, and we needed more time to do it all. While we had a plan, because of the language barrier we found ourselves wandering taking it all in without a clear direction, but loving it nonetheless. This was the first time in almost two months that we could fully let our guard down and feel 100% safe.
Our first meal was not the best meal we had in Japan but it was one of the most memorable. As we wandered around the Shinjuku train station looking for what to eat, we realized that finding English spoken or written was less common than anywhere we had traveled so far. The menus were all in Japanese and finding an English menu was not common aside from more touristy places. We stopped into a small restaurant with 5 tables and an open kitchen. In the kitchen was an older man and woman, and at the tables a bunch of Japanese businessman. Without even asking us what we wanted the woman brought us lunch. Lunch was our first tonkatsu, a delicious fried pork cutlet, with a miso soup and small salad. This was the specialty of the house, there was no other option, that was lunch and it was amazing.

We spent the next few days in Tokyo wandering around in pure amazement. The shopping malls towered overhead. The trains and subways were immaculate and never late. Most importantly, the people were different than any that we had encountered. There is a level of politeness and respect that comes with being in Japan. Looking bewildered at the signs in a subway station for more than 5 minutes would inevitably end up with a stranger stopping and asking if we needed help. They would then escort us, sometimes 10 minutes, out of their way to make sure we got where we needed to go. Communication was largely conducted with a series of hand gestures and pointing while they continued to speak in Japanese to us. Very few times did this communication need clarification. The message being communicated was almost always evident.

There was one area that Hannah really wanted to take me to, Akihabara, as it is known to be the "geek capital of the world." As we explored and roamed the streets, it turned out Hannah was in love with this neighborhood as much as I was. Whether it was the girls dressed as anime characters trying to lure all the techies into their store or the 8 story video game arcades, we were both hooked. We realized that Tokyo is a place where things come to life.

While we were loving figuring out Tokyo on our own, there is no better way to explore a city than going out with locals. Thankfully I had a great connection, Atsushi and Namino of the Ooyala Tokyo office. Atsushi and Namino planned a great night out local Tokyo style, and we had no idea what to expect. The evening started by meeting them at The Washington Hotel in Shunjuku for dinner. What we didn't realize is that we were expected to catch our own fish, swimming in a pond surrounding our tables. Hannah was the true fisherman of the family and caught our meal.


After dinner we raced to the main event of the evening, Robot Restaurant. The Robot Restaurant can't be explained in words, and really can't be explained in pictures or videos either. It just can't be explained. It was, however, one of the most entertaining experiences ever, I would describe it as Tron over Cabaret with a Blade Runner kicker.

The evening ended for Namino and Atsushi at a tiny bar in one of the piss alley areas of Shibuya where tons of tiny bars only capable of seating 10 people line the streets. Locals, expats, and tourists alike sit and chat, sip Japanese whiskey. We found a great spot run by Tsuyoshi, a great guy who had spent a few years in Colorado. His taste in music was spectacular. We spent the night in his bar drinking whiskey and playing tunes by Wilco on his bar's stereo. Aside from me leaving Hannah at the bar with Tsuyoshi and a french dude to look for an ATM without a cell phone and almost getting helplessly lost at 2am in the streets of Tokyo the night couldn't have been more perfect.
Our evening at the Tokyo Dome to see the Yomiuri Giants take on the Hiroshima Carp was one of the defining moments of our time in Tokyo. We learned that Japanese baseball is one the must do things while in Japan even for the least of baseball fans. Its like going to a soccer match in South America without the flag burning and stabbings. Every crowd member is so into the game its unlike anything you'd see at even a Red Sox and Yankees Game 7. Every player has a song and every fan knows every song. The crowd welcomed us with open arms and we made some great friends that night....aside from the drunk, knacker, Aussie who kept trying to steal food from the locals around us.

The rest of our time in Tokyo was a hodgepodge of eating the local food and shopping. We spent more time shopping in Japan than anywhere else on our trip. Things were just so cool, areas of town that were known for style and fashion were the hippest we had ever seen. The people carried themselves with a confidence and unassuming swagger....we loved every place we went in Tokyo and were happy that after a tour of the surrounding areas we'd be coming back for another week.

The UNESCO world heritage area of Hoi An's ancient town is a popular place for tourists. The 15-19th century buildings are well preserved and offer a glimpse into the former trading port. Although thick with people weaving in and out of the streets, selfie stick wielding tourists and pickpockets, it still retains a charm nevertheless and some fantastic food can be found in this picturesque area. It is easy to navigate and is laid out in a grid pattern. There are two sides of main area of Hoi An straddled by an 18th century Japanese wooden bridge that spans over Hoai River. And Hoi An is said to be the home of Vietnam's best banh mi as well as other specialty foods.

How Travel Advisors Benefit The Traveler

How Travel Advisors Benefit The Traveler

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

One of the biggest lesson I’ve learned about my job is that people have a common misconception about travel advisors and are unaware of the benefit to working with one to plan their travels.

Not only did I find that it is an extremely fun and fulfilling career to have, but I also learned that Luxury Travel Advisors benefit the traveler in a number of unknown ways. First-hand […]
