I need your vote! Will you help me?

Hello to all my followers, friends and fabulous random people who read this!!

I need your help! I am applying for a travel writing assignment with Dreamjobbing and Puerto Vallarta Visitors Bureau.

I have created a one minute video explaining who I am, why I love to travel, and why I think that I would be the perfect person for this assignment.

What I will deliver to you if I am chosen for this assignment.

I will share with you, my followers, where the best places to eat, explore, and relax in so you do not waste your precious vacation time.

We all seem to have a shortage of vacation time and funds – unless of course, you just won the lottery!

Why waste that time and money trying to figure out where to go to have the best street tacos? Want a luxurious ultimate relaxation spa experience? Or how about something more off-road and daring, such as driving dune buggies, exploring ghost towns, or zip-lining through the rainforest? I will tell you where and with who to book with if you will cast your vote for me.

We all have those unpleasant vacation experiences that we talk about. “The boat captain was…”, “the food was cold, tasteless, etc.,”, “I did not feel safe as I…”, “the room was dirty”. I could go on and on.  My goal it to help remove those uncertainties so you will only have fabulous experiences in Puerto Vallarta.

I will create action travel videos as well as written articles for you to watch and read.

Empty Nest – not quite as ready as we thought

I thought I was ready. My husband thought he was ready. We were both wrong. We were surprised and caught off guard by the strong emotions we were feeling – the hollow pit in our stomachs, the Continue reading Empty Nest Emotions
