The Mount Juliet Estate in Ireland & Crafting the Perfect Getaway

After several trips to the Emerald Isle, I have learned that it is shockingly difficult to find a bad hotel or resort. Kindness and warm hospitality are among the many reasons why I love traveling around Ireland, and in the country’s best hotels those are qualities found in abundance. There are though a handful of properties that aren’t just nice, they’re remarkable places to stay and explore. They become part of the destination, part of the adventure and that is certainly the case at the expan...

Thrilling ATV Adventures – Best Things to do in St. George Utah

“Show them what you’re made of Mum” We were in St. George Utah and Kalyra screamed at me from the back of our ATV as I screamed. I think an oh shit even slipped out of my mouth as I pressed my foot down on the accelerator and roared up the sand dune. Breathing was tight, possibly even held, as that old familiar fear from my youth arrived. It would take my breath and freeze me in the back seat of our car as my nervous mother attempted to drive up the vertical notorious Rampart. As a child it fel...

Great American Weekend Getaways: Detroit

Today I’m introducing a new limited-run series all about great weekend getaway destinations around the country that I personally love. The project is done in partnership with Marriott International, continuing a relationship that I’ve had for a long time and deeply value. Even before I started my blog I was an enthusiastic guest of Marriott International properties, so it just makes sense. For the next couple of months I will be highlighting a number of different cities around the U.S. that I t...

Biking the Waterford Greenway & Exploring County Waterford in Ireland

Opening in 2017, the Waterford Greenway is a 28-mile rails-to-trails project that runs from Waterford City to the coastal community of Dungarvan. It’s also a fantastic example of a reclamation project done right. Tracing the old train tracks that used to run through here, the Greenway takes visitors through rolling farmland, over bridges and viaducts and along the coast featuring incredible sea views. I spent the morning biking along the Greenway and not only do I want to share that experience,...

Exploring Ardmore and the Cliff House Hotel in Ireland

It was late in the afternoon as I navigated the switchback country roads that would take me to Ardmore. At least, I assumed that they would take me to Ardmore. I had a faith in my GPS that is akin to the fanaticism of a 14th century Crusader but, as always, that faith was well placed as I quickly found myself in the small, hilly hamlet of Ardmore. People have lived along the craggy cliffs of Ardmore for a very long time and it is even considered to be the oldest Christian settlement in the coun...

A Few Reasons To Love Visiting Waterford, Ireland

The average visitor to Ireland has a lot on their travel to-do list, from Dublin to the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher, even further afield to Galway and Donegal. An area of the country that’s starting to creep up on these to–do lists is what’s locally called the Sunny Southeast. Waterford City is Ireland’s oldest city and thanks to the natural beauty surrounding it, the entire region has a lot to interest any type of traveler. Although it has flown quietly under the radar for quite a wh...

Waterford Castle Hotel: Country Luxury Near the City

I looked down at my phone then back up at the water in front of me, somewhat confused. Google Maps clearly told me to keep driving, but there was a problem. There was a river. Clearly I was still suffering from jet lag, because it took me longer than I’d like to admit that there was also a ferry in front of me, waiting to take me the 60 seconds or so across the river to the island where I’d be spending the night. That was my first introduction to Waterford Castle Hotel, as it is for all guests ...

Climbing in Guatemala – Amatitlan Rock Breakdown

Guest post by Brandon Villatoro (Travel Experta’s son) Amatitlan and Xela are the biggest and most recommended places to rock climb in Guatemala. I will mainly tell you my experience of Amatitlan because I have never been to Xela. But will be going soon, so stayed tuned. Amatitlan is a very big lake (Lake Amatitlan) located south of Guatemala City, about thirty minutes from there. Once you arrive to the spot of the entrance to the rock, it is about a ten minute hike to the first sector. T...

20 Fun and Interesting Things to Do in Los Angeles with Kids

LA is the second biggest city in the USA, and as a visitor it seems like there are endless things to do in Los Angeles with kids! Over the years we’ve been able to visit Los Angeles several times. Firstly solo, then as a couple, and now with our two daughters, Kalyra and Savannah. To be honest we weren’t initially big fans, and it’s taken a while for LA to grow on us. Sometimes you have to visit a place a second or third or even forth time before you can appreciate it. I think it’s because we c...

Direwolves & Castles: My Game of Thrones Experience in Northern Ireland

When I was planning my return to Ireland with Tourism Ireland, there was one experience I knew that I didn’t want to miss, a day living out my Game of Thrones fantasies in Northern Ireland. I’d seen photos of the special tour for quite a while, but it wasn’t until I found myself in County Down, Northern Ireland when I finally had the chance to participate. Even if you have just a passing interest in Game of Thrones, you’ll want to read on because the experience is about so much more than just a...

9 Tips for Your Trip to Machu Picchu

I went to Peru’s Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley with a dear friend of mine to celebrate the big 4-0. To mark this milestone birthday, I had a certain scenario in mind. After an absolutely punishing year that included a health scare, job loss, a move, the aftermath of a nasty breakup and a family tragedy, I imagined myself standing powerfully on top of Machu Picchu, where I’d throw my hands up in the air and shout: “Hey world, look at ME! I am a goddess! A superheroine! A doer of great things!” ...

Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast; Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast

This post originally appeared on Nomadic Chick. It all began, fittingly, on the first day of summer with a game called ‘tangled’, where everyone puts their hands in the center of a circle, grabs two random people’s hands and then proceeds to untangle themselves to make a circle as this is “team-building” and “creates friendships”. It was our first day as counselors at an American summer camp in up-state New York and we were wondering just what we had gotten ourselves into. In the fray of hand g...

For the love of Amba: How I came to eat swarma with a cabbie in Tel Aviv

“Now you are not a customer, you are a friend. I can smoke,” Ofer, my uber driver turned friend said to me as he leant over to swipe his phone, turning off the metre. As he quickly flicked open the box that was in his shirt pocket, he turned to me, in as much as one can turn in a car seat, “Want a cigarette?“ I was back in Israel again a lot sooner than I had expected. In fact, I only left two-weeks prior thinking I’d be back in July. Instead I was back after one of my guides to Hebron messag...
