Maui in 3.5 Days: My Little Guide

Marriott Wailea Beach Resort

I’ve somehow managed to justify flying 6 hrs one way for a long weekend since living in the US. Not in a million years would I have considered this back in Ireland! But I find myself putting in the mileage just for a few days – and it’s always worth it. One of the (and not to brag) many benefits of living in the PNW is the accessibility to Hawaii. Making it a perfect weekend getaway when you’ve had it up to your ears with the rain, cold and grey clouds. I’m not entirely complaining – I chose to live here knowing full well and appreciating the four season this magical part of the country gets. 🙂

NYC Chillin’

Central Park
Back to my NYC

I could honestly go back to NYC a bajillion times a year and wouldn’t get sick of it. If plan ‘A’ goes down the drain, no worries, there’s something else around the corner. Now, I’m sure this is true for most places and spaces but I can say from experience, that this place has nailed it for activities.

In the past, I’ve never really looked in to doing things like the Statue of Liberty, going to a show or checking out tourist sites but I gave an honest shot this time around. Saying that, basically none if it worked out but like I said, the plan B’s were better. 🙂 New York as whole is home to some of the greatest humans I know in the world, so my focus has always been to get out and see them. Since this was a quick trip though, I said I’d stay put in the city and hang tight with the slickers.

Holidays in Galway and Montana 12/19/17 – 01/03/18

Home, Galway
A holiday well spent traveling

Well I can hand on heart say that this was definitely a well traveled holiday season. From a work trip to Vegas, followed by 11 days in Ireland then a last minute trip to Bozeman Montana, I’m pretty confident that the PDX airport staff think that I work there!

San Francisco – August 2017

San Francisco
San Francisco

If you’re looking for night life, shopping, fun touristy things, lovely weather and good food – San Francisco is the spot.

When I was deciding where in America I should move to, San Francisco was a strong contender. Only for my gut said ‘ Go to Oregon Zita!’,  I would have ended up down there. I’m glad to know now that it still wouldn’t have been a wrong decision. This past August I was lucky enough to visit for two very different, very special occasions with two awesome sets of company. Full disclosure, I’ve no idea how this post is going to come out as I’m 3 months behind on it (actually to the day nearly lol!) and I’m dredging up a lot from my old lady memory bank. I’m really wheeling back the time machine wheels for this one haha! Continue reading “San Francisco – August 2017”
