Holland, Michigan

As much as I love the city, I have a soft spot for small towns. I didn't know what I was getting into when my bf suggested going to Holland, Michigan. I was excited to see the tulips of course but the town centre has a lot of charm too. The day we were leaving, we wanted to go to the town centre to wander around. We walked around the shops, visited a wine shop and did a quick wine tasting, and we had brunch at New Holland Brewing restaurant. The food at the restaurant was superb! We had a charcuterie platter and it was perfect for sharing. I can't tell you much about the beer because I had wine but my bf said it was great!

Japan Guide

The next vacation..

September always gets the best of me. This month is always stressful and long. I am counting down the days when it's finally over. This year is exceptionally going too fast. I blinked and it's already fall. I wished I had managed my time more and taken a summer break but I ended up working straight and now I can feel the need for a vacation. 

Thankfully, the bf and I are planning to (finally) visit Japan and South Korea next month. Planning was a bit stressful this time because I didn't realized that their is a long weekend in Japan in the first week of November and most of the accommodations are booked in Kyoto & Osaka. But my friend Keiko came to the rescue and helped me a lot in booking hotels. I don't know what I would have done without her.

Planning a vacation while being stressed out at work is not a good way to start but I have no choice. Once it slows down, I hope I can finally get excited about my trip but right now, I'm just a bundle of stress/anxiety. Almost everything is taken care of so now I can sit back and wait for our departure date to arrive. 

We will be in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. From there, we will fly to Seoul, South Korea. I welcome all recommendations from restaurants, shopping, and fun/must do attractions!

Birthday Destinations

My birthday falls in the dead of winter. February is the shortest but sometimes can be the coldest month in winter. It's a depressing month coupled up with me getting older. I began to strategically plan my trips between my birth day a couple of years ago. I really try not to be home during my birthday to avoid depression and the cold cold winter. 

I try to celebrate in warmer climates so I don't have to bundle up to go out. Beach destinations is usually my target. I like to relax and do nothing on my birthday.

So far, I have celebrated my birthday's in Thailand, Cuba, Spain, and Costa Rica. I want to keep going for as long as I can.

Have you ever celebrated your birthday abroad? Do you go on birthday vacation?
