Kids are out of school, the weather is amazing so there are so many people taking road trips, camping or flying somewhere far to explore the unknown. No matter if you are on the road visiting family, taking a vacation or a business trip, maintaining your regular workout routine can be a challenge!

    How to Get a Stranger to Take Great Photos (of you!)

    My late husband was my personal photographer. So after he passed away, I had to find whoever that is available to take my photos. I usually plan ahead of time to ask my step-daughter, or a few friends to help me with during the weekends. Then I started my solo travel journey and I realized that my selfie skills are so limited. In order to get some great photos, I have to learn to ask strangers to take photos of me. As you can imagine, it was not easy at the beginning. What if they say no? What if they are bad people? What if they drop my camera and…

    What To Wear and Pack To A Beach Picnic With Family

    A few weekends ago, my step-daughter, her fiancé and I decided to have a family beach picnic. I haven’t done any beach picnic before. I bought a very cute picnic basket a few months ago that I have never used. So this is the perfect time to try something new. What to Pack: 1. A Picnic Basket I love mine because it came with all the eating utensils, even with a wine opener, glasses, a tablecloth, and napkins. This carry-it-all basket is not just good looking, it is also quite practical. Which I can carry almost all the food here. Mine doesn’t have a cooler lining so we also took…

    WiFi Wherever You Travel With Telecom Square Global Hotspot

    WiFi Wherever You Travel With Telecom Square Global Hotspot Hi guys! I am back from Paris in one piece and with many great memories!;) I was really worried before the trip because it was my first international solo trip. I know zero French and my English is not the best either. There is nobody I know in Paris and I didn’t have any company for the trip. It turned out to be one of my favorite vacations because I got so much help from my convenient internet access. On my phone I have several apps that are definitely my heroes when it came to the success of this trip. I…

    NYFW trip I just want to go home!

    NYFW trip I just want to go home! So, we got to NYFW in February. The flight out was a little tough and the time there was a little freezing but now it was time to go home.

    NYFW Trip-Part 2 Was that a polar bear I just saw in Times Square?

    NYFW Trip-Part 2 Was that a polar bear I just saw in Times Square? Well, we made it to New York’s JFK airport. The flight was noisy, the landing rough and scary but here we were on the ground and looking into the best way to get to our hotel in Manhattan’s Financial District. We knew taxis were expensive and because there was really no day or time that it wasn’t rush hour in the Big Apple, we asked around for some advice. The man who was working at the airport shuttle train suggested taking the “A Train”. He explained this was the express route and we’d be there in…
