Before You Complain About That Crying Baby On Your Plane, Think About This!

Back to the future in Ipanema

I was walking into a decoration store in Ipanema to find out the price of a beautifly framed picture of a small French town. As soon as I entered the store, the smell took me back at least 30 years to my grandmothers home. The sales woman kindly wanted to help me, but I could not stop thinking of how my grandma was such a beautiful part of my life and how warm and safe the feeling of having her made me feel. I felt the need to hold on to that smell and moment for the longest possible, because once I left the store I would be back to my reality, which grandma did not make part anymore....more

I'm from the Midwest, born and raised, and I do not have an accent. People from the south have accents. People from the east have accents. And people from the west definitely have accents.

Definitely Goa

Things to DEFINITELY do in GOA in an all girls trip ;) Definitely 1.Buy a bikini. Goa has all kinds of beaches, few in which you can wear a bikini and few in which you might feel a little out of place. So, skip the afternoons and the overcrowded evenings. Try the early morning beach in a bikini in Baga or Calangute, feel the cold ocean in a fluorescent bikini. Nothing like the morning sea caressing you. Bliss! ...more
