Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza Deluxe Silver Room Review

Being on the island of Ibiza during the first week of May, I feel as though I didn’t get to experience the full offerings of this beautiful Mediterranean outpost. Of course, the tourist season had just begun and the Hard Rock itself had only been open for a few weeks before my arrival. Most of […]

How I Used My Chase Sapphire Reserve 100,000 Point Bonus

So, last week when I booked a flight through Aer Lingus to Barcelona for the tidy sum of $297, I had absolutely no idea how much this excursion would cost me further. Shit, did I just commit to just over a week in Europe without even considering funding…why, yes. Not that the cost was really […]

$297 Round Trip to Barcelona Booked…Now to Plan a Trip

So, this morning I decided to book a new trip on a whim while considering Caribbean vacations to hit up within the next month. As of now, it looks as though using my Chase Rewards points to head to Aruba or Grand Cayman are on hold. However, in lieu of that I grabbed a deal […]

Fluenz French Level 1 Completed! Full Review

So, it took me a long ass time to get through the first level of Fluenz French. This is my fault. Between work, online classes, my internet ventures, and general laziness…I really dropped the ball. I managed to get through the entire six seasons of Game of Thrones during the same time span but didn’t […]

Approved! 100,000 Bonus Point Offer for Chase Sapphire Reserve

It was time for me to find a new credit card sign up bonus, as I plan on closing my Capital One Venture Card account as soon as I pay off my bill for the next cycle. My 40,000 bonus miles eventually ballooned into over 60,000 which I used to fund my flight and hotel […]

Using Amex Premier Rewards Gold 50,000 Bonus Points

So, I unexpectedly used most of my 50,000 point sign up bonus from the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card. I was in the process of planning some sort of winter getaway (and I probably will still go somewhere soon), when there was a family decision to take a vacation to the US Virgin Islands […]

Art Deco Car Exhibit at the NCMA

As soon as I’d read about there being an Art Deco car exhibit at NCMA, I knew that I was going to buy tickets and check out these wonderful designs from the past. However, I put if off for a couple months before actually going, much like I did with the MC Escher showcase last […]

Fluenz French Level 1 Review

So, I must admit that I kind of bought Fluenz French on a whim during their Black Friday sale. I got the complete course Levels 1-5 for only $278. Why did I suddenly want to learn French? Well, I had actually started using Duolingo to learn late last year and into early 2016, and actually […]

Caesar’s Palace Garden of the Gods Pool

To me, one of the best features of the Caesar’s Palace property, was the complex of pools on site. These ‘Garden of the Gods’ pools were diverse and also very structurally beautiful. I have always been interested in Roman history, TV shows, and the aesthetic of ancient architecture. Caesar’s of course, does a heck of […]

Exploring the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas

  One of my favorite properties on the Las Vegas Strip to explore was The Venetian. As an outsider and not a guest of the hotel, the architecture and attention to detail in recreating Venice in the desert was really cool. I swung by here twice during my stay just to record and snap photos. […]
