Glamping Reviews

Tiny Glamping at WeeCasa

I opened the door to #9 excited to see what I was about to encounter.  I felt like I was falling into Alice’s rabbit hole; everything seemed familiar yet came with slight twists.  It’s as if my world had shrunk to a tiny Wonderland. I surveyed the 135 square feet carefully, taking in all the […]

A Lakefront Island Escape in Kenya

GETTING THERE When our plane stopped at the end of a private runway at the entrance of Rusinga Island Lodge, I cheered. Throughout my travels in Kenya, getting to other glamping destinations required, in many cases, arduous and bumpy hour-long drives. After an ease-filled entry to Rusinga, I felt myself slip into island mode as […]

Digital Detox in a Tulum Treehouse

Leading up to a recent last minute trip to Mexico, and my first time exploring the area of Tulum, my travel friend Megan and I spent some time researching a place to park ourselves for a few days in the Quintana Roo state. We scoured the internet seeking out unique accommodations in the main Tulum […]

Small Town Experiences High Above Switzerland

When the first snow falls each winter on the East Coast island I call home, I always daydream off to being atop a mountain. I made a vow to seek out more alpine experiences this year and I began that journey with Switzerland. A lover of small town experiences, I happened upon Whitepod in the […]

Hardanger Basecamp: Back to nature in a yurt

The thought of arriving after dark to a chilly overnight in a yurt isn’t particularly cozy, especially when raining. But if it comes with a campfire and its very own homebrew, things are looking brighter. This is Norway, where nature excels and fuzzy reindeer are ever-present. And at Hardanger Basecamp in Osa, you get much […]

Dreamy Ometepe & Finca San Juan

Our ferry boat sailed towards Ometepe Island: twin volcanoes that rise out of Lake Nicaragua, sloping down to lush forests and sandy beaches. We always heard about Ometepe during our Central American travels, and it sounded like a mythical place…volcano trekking to sky-high lagoons, wild horses galloping the shores, kids riding to school on ox […]

La Pinte du Vieux Manoir

La Pinte du Vieux Manoir, set in Switzerland’s gorgeous Lake District, is as fabulous as it sounds. The elegance that permeates every corner of the property is matched only by the gracious hospitality of each member of the staff. Further afield, you find a quaint village that seems bent on charming all newcomers at every […]

Savage River Lodge

It is often said that you only get one chance to make a first impression. If that adage holds true, then the first glance at Savage River Lodge promises a true escape from the everyday. Turn off the main road onto a bumpy road that snakes through the deep forest of the Savage River Forest. […]

Le Clos de Saires

There is a secret part of France that most don’t get to experience. Of course, the French known for their impeccable elegance and style, and these are what most travelers see. We rush through on our ten-day jaunts and arrive back on the tarmac breathless, albeit impressed. But this doesn’t allow time to get to […]

Lake Nicaragua’s Secret Island

We pulled away from the dock in the colonial city of Granada, Nicaragua. Our wooden sailboat weaved between dozens of the rock islands, spouted from an angry Mombacho Volcano a millennia ago. A day cruise around Las Isletas is the typical tourist activity, but we were going deeper into Lake Nicaragua with two-days on Isla […]
