PUERTO RICO AND ITS SPLENDOR!

ELEGANT DINING

The Olive Boutique Hotel is elegant and timeless in its décor. It is a small luxury hotel housing one of the best steak houses on the island of Puerto Rico!

SAGE STEAK LOFT

This is a favorite to many frequent travelers to Puerto Rico. This ultra-chic restaurant is in the Olive Boutique Hotel and is one of Puerto Rico’s finest restaurants.  This is a steakhouse serving up steak and fish dishes coupled with mango, papaya and guava!  The Ahi Tuna Crab Pops are to die for! The crust on top is mouthwatering.

Why go to Mykonos? The Greek Party Island!

Little Venice ! Great restaurants, clubs and nightlife! My spot every night!

Mykonos

Ahhh… Mykonos, the “party island”.  And I do mean party! But Mykonos is also known for its fabulous beaches as it’s less cliffy than Santorini.  The shopping is amazing from Designer shops like Louis Vuitton and Chanel to locals selling their wares.  There’s even a Sephora! But there is definitely a lot more to this fabulous island in Greece. What is fun about Mykonos is that there is a lot more hustle and bustle, particularly in Mykonos Town, like Old Port and Little Venice. The beaches here have soft, golden sand, but can be very crowded in July and August. And beware of the cost of chaise lounge rentals ranging from $30.00 to $80.00 USD to rent a chair!

The Windmills in Mykonos Town! Absolutely fabulous to see!

Fabulous hotel with stunning views of Aegean Sea!

It’s easier to get around Mykonos because most of the attractions are all closer to each other, such as the old port and the popular beaches. Public buses are the best way to get around costing approximate $2.00 to any destination. The buses area very nice like charter buses so they are very comfortable.  You can rent scooter and atvs if you are adventurous. I have to say that a lot of hotels near Mykonos town are situated high and require walking once the bus drops you off as buses cannot go up the narrow road leading to your fabulous hotel. I recommend taxis if you are not fit, older or too drunk or tired to walk the hill. Continue reading

Visiting Venice for your Italy Vacation

If you go on a vacation in Italy it is almost necessary that you visit Venice. Everyone who has ever been to Italy has an almost classic picture of them in a “vaporetti” or a “gondola” with a canal for a backdrop. I am excited to add that in a few weeks, I will have the opportunity to visit Milan and Venice with my daughter. See my article, https://kc.milliondollarbranding.com/birthday-gift-to-milan-italy-for-my-fav-girl-my-kaiya-milan/ veniceThis famous Italian city found in the north is also sometimes known as the city of water, the city of bridges and the city of lights. Vaporetti are motorized buses used by Venetians for transportation around the city’s canals while the gondola is a Venetian boat that is now used mostly by tourists and sometimes for weddings or funerals. The city is made up of several small islands, 118 to be exact hence the need for water transportation and the many bridges.

There are 150 canals and 400 bridges. There are also several art galleries and all together these make for an exciting experience when you are on an Italy vacation. You can click here to find activities and things you may like to experience while taking a vacation in Venice.
