One Sweet Trip After Another

My first chocolate tour was to Bruge, Belgium, an amazing town with over 50+ chocolate shops! From there, I was hooked and every single trip I’ve taken has been on the hunt for the best sweets – from chocolate, to hot chocolate, to pastries and more.

Don’t forget the coffee too! No matter where I am, coffee is always calling my name!

I hope you’ll join me on my next Reader Trip!

Our first was December 2019, when we explored the German Christmas Markets while on a luxury river cruise. I love European Christmas Markets and I can’t wait to go back!

Our next will be a sweet tour of Paris…I have so many ideas of where to go, things I want to share with you that I’ve seen and fallen in love with…I’m fairly ‘giddy’ with excitement!

 I have one question though…where do you think we should go next? Click the buttom and email me your idea!

Top Traveling Tips for New Travelers

  There is nothing I love more than planning a trip! There's a genuine excitement that fills me, follows me throughout the day and it doesn't matter that planning, researching, making lists upon lists can eat up my writing day...I'll do it over and over and over...

So, I’ve been thinking…

One of my favorite trips that I've ever taken was to experience the German Christmas Markets a few years ago while writing Abby's Journey (have you read it yet?). I loved it so much that I haven't stopped thinking about it. I was only able to visit a handful of them...

Steena's Tips & Tricks For Traveling

I’ve learned a lot of tips and tricks when it comes to traveling – solo, as a family or in a group.
Here’s my top tips to making your next trip a stress-free one (I’m always adding to it.)

TOP 5 Tips:

  1. Use carry-on luggage only. You won’t wear/use/need 1/2 the things you’ve packed in your big suitcase.
  2. Tuck extra $$ away for emergency. 
  3. Don’t be afraid to explore on your own. Solo travel can be an amazing adventure!
  4. Travelon Anti-Theft, RFID purses will be your lifesaver. This is one of my favorites (I have multiple styles now).
  5. Bring your cords! Don’t forget laptop/phone/ereader charger cords.
