Travel Arizona Road Tripping with Toyota

I’ve been traveling to Arizona since I can remember. My family’s roots lie deep in Tucson. As a kid my mom would send my brother and I out to spend our summer’s and school vacations with my Grandma Lucy. I can still smell her homemade flour tortillas. To say I have a connection with the desert is an understatement. That’s why my heart skipped a beat when Toyota invited me out to road trip it to Phoenix for some spring training baseball. It’s like they just knew that this experience was made just for me. Nevermind the fact that I…

Travel Take me Back to San Antonio

One of the major perks of this life I live, is my ability to travel. Sometimes my trips are “so-so” and sometimes they are “ahhhmazing.” Then you have travel experiences that leave you in awe of your experience. From the hotel you stay in to the people you get to spend your time with. That was this last trip as a guest of Kia in the heart of Texas—San Antonio. I love San Antonio, I really do. But, every time I visit, I don’t get to see too much of it. I’m always stuck in a hotel. This time, thanks…

My Tips Packing for Hispanicize

There are a lot of reasons why I love what I do. Having a community of influencers and creators that I can connect and learn with is just the icing on the cake. That’s why I love going to events like Hispanicize. And this year I’m excited announce that I’m an official Hispanicize 2017 Social Correspondent. It’s the largest annual event for Latino trendsetters and newsmakers in digital content creation, journalism, marketing, entertainment and tech entrepreneurship—and this will be my fifth time attending! Are you planning on being a part of Hispanicize and the Dime Summit in Miami this year?…

Travel Our Very Own Winter Wonderland

As a California girl, you’d think I’d only love sunny beaches and palm trees. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my warm weather. But, sometimes a girl needs to experience a little snow and ice. Which I really haven’t done since my days of living in North Dakota and Germany. That’s why, when my best friend offered me her home in Maine for 9 days, I couldn’t say no—even in the middle of January. Before you ask, no I don’t ski, snowboard, snowmobile or any other activity that requires playing in the snow. I do love to lounge though.…

I Was a Health Spa Virgin: 5 Things I Learned

First thing I’m going to do for you is explain what a health spa is and then I’ll tell you how I landed in one. According to Dictionary.com, a health spa is a resort or a special building or room where a person may exercise, swim, or otherwise condition the body. Now that you know that, let me explain how this all unfolded. My amiga Yolanda of SassyMamainLA.com, text me asking if I wanted to head to a resort in Ojai with her. I had just told my husband that I needed a massage and some “me” time badly. Without…

Travel Diary | Virginia is for Travel Lovers

I’ll never forget the first time I walked onto an airplane. I was 19-years-old and I was headed off to Texas for Basic Military Training. This is when I learned all about the fine skill of hyperventilating. It was probably, to this day, one of the worst flights of my life. Down to the thunder and lightening storm that followed me all the way to San Antonio. You’d think this would’ve scared me into never flying again…wrong. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve flown and how many more flights are in my future. It’s all because I…

Travel Diary | Discovering Mission San Diego de Alcalá

“Less doh…less doh,” I would yell as soon as I heard the keys jingle. My dad tells me as soon as I could walk and talk, I was always trying to leave. I can’t blame me. This curious toddler wanted to see what was beyond her parents arms. I’m not much different today. I can’t imagine a life without being able to travel and discover new places. In my latest travel adventure, I take you in and around the first mission in California—San Diego de Alcalá. There I was in one of my favorite cities, with KIA and it was our duty to…
