Dolomites Alta Via 2 Stage 2: Plosehütte to Genova-Schlüterhütte

by Jules @ Solo Wayfarer

I tend to have trouble sleeping in new places and this night was no different despite desperately wanting to after that tough first day’s trek.

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.  […]

by francesFR @ So The Adventure Begins

To legally work in Vietnam, and apply for temporary residency, you require a work permit.

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Pink Sands Club: The Height of Luxury

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

The Pinks Sands Club on Canouan Island was such a surprise to me! This was my second work trip (my first was to Uruguay, Chile and Chilean Patagonia) and it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet that I get to travel to some pretty fantastic places, The Pink Sands Club included. Snuggled on a private beach on an island in St. Vincent and The Grenadines in the Caribbean, the hotel is white with splashes of bright pink and blue – a favorite combo of mine. Each room is slightly different but all in the same style. Each room in the hotel has a large terrace overlooking the ocean – my sister came with me on this trip and we liked to sleep with the door open to the terrace so we could hear the ocean as we went to sleep. Canouan Island has a population of roughly 2,500 people. The […]

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. In this day and age, there is a wealth of information on the internet at our fingertips so a lot of people plan their own travels. Which begs the question: “Why pay someone to plan a trip when you can do it on your own?” Believe me, I was asking the same question less than two years ago so when I was looking for a job, the title of “Luxury Travel Advisor” didn’t appeal to me until I started doing my research. 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 […]

She mostly photographs landscapes and skyscapes. What inspired you to become an expat? Traveling was the main reason. I wanted to explore the World and I wanted to experience staying away from home. Why did you choose Sydney? I had three options based on my job opportunities – Denmark, Canada and Australia. This was the first time I was moving away from family and I knew it was hard for my mother to accept this change. Because of which I decided on a place that was closest to home (India), which was Australia. Did you go alone or did you have a friend/significant other with you? Yes, alone.

Chilean Patagonia Destination Highlight

Chilean Patagonia Destination Highlight

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

Patagonia. It’s a major bucket list item for some but to be honest, it really never crossed my mind to add Patagonia to my list of destinations I really wanted to travel. When my company received an invite to go to Chilean Patagonia (Patagonia also extends into Argentina!) in the spring, I accepted the invitation hesitantly really only because I was already going to be in Santiago, where the trip began, two days before the start of the Patagonia trip. Time-wise, it made sense for me to go so I said “yes” to the invitation. And I’m soooo glad I did. Patagonia is unique because the landscapes are so varied. During my time in Chilean Patagonia, I saw countryside extending as far as the eye could so, enormous mountains, crystal blue glaciers, waterfalls, etc. There was a new delight around every corner. Patagonia is an adventurer’s paradise – I loved […]

When I had the opportunity to go back to explore Bali on a work trip, I jumped at the chance and was thrilled I’d be returning. 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 […]

Panama – It’s A Jungle Out There!

Panama – It’s A Jungle Out There!

by Sarah Attaway @ Sunkissed Suitcase

I recently made my first trip to Panama on a work trip with 12 other travel advisors from around the United States.

My absolute favorite day exploring Panama was our jungle boat adventure (we also hiked, did a Panama Canal Transit, enjoyed the beach and explored Panama City’s Old City – Casco Antiguo). Our jungle day was my favorite day in country because jungle’s excite me – the landscape is gorgeous, I always find it interesting that you are surrounded by wildlife – much of which you probably can’t see at any given moment. Panama – it’s a […]
