A little Saturday adventure at Butterfly World

Hi guys! Today I wanted to tell you about a little adventure I went on this past Saturday at Butterfly World. Whenever I’m not traveling I like discovering places around South Florida on the weekends. Whether it’s a restaurant I haven’t tried yet or a fresh market or a local event, I like to pretend…

Travel in time to the Florida Renaissance Festival

Happy Sunday paradise seekers! Today is a good day to do something outdoors, at least here in South Florida. I have a great suggestion for you: travel in time to the annual Florida Renaissance Festival located in Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach.

Morikami Museum and Japanese Garden: A piece of Japan in Florida

Happy Hump Day everyone! Today I wanted to tell you about a piece of Japan right here in South Florida. I don’t promise I’ll get over my Japan obsession anytime soon, but this will probably be the last post about anything Japanese… for now. This is just too good not to share, and in case…

A Sense of Place

The eclectic Miami scene is always the perfect scenario to breathe in culture, fashion and art; but the best example of this trinity is probably Miami’s Art Basel, which takes place annually in early December and welcomes artists, celebrities, art-lovers and people-watchers from all over the world. This year’s Basel (pronounced bah-zel, not bay-zel) consisted of…
