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!

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.
