Announcement: I'm Movin' On Up!

It’s quite clear that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew with my new-found travel blogger life merging with my day job. With that said, I’m excited to announce that I will finally be quitting my hotel job to become a full-time travel blogger!

My new adventure will include both International destinations and a full U.S. road trip. I also have a few new projects in the works to debut over the course of 2017 including consulting services, a travel store, and more!

Learn From Me: Airport Transfers

cr post title

Working at hotels has given me a unique view into people’s lives. I’ve heard travel horror stories from dozens of people – everything from simple lost luggage to  your hotel neighbor being a human trafficker. Travel itself isn’t dangerous, but life, in general, can be . You always need to play it safe. Just like you wouldn’t get into a strangers’ car at home, you probably shouldn’t do it in Panama either.

Costa Rica Is For Everyone!

Costa Rica For Everyone

Whether you want to bask in the sun, surf the Pacific, hike a volcano, or zipline through a dense jungle – Costa Rica has something for everyone. Nestled between Nicaragua and Panama in Central America, lies the beautiful and welcoming country of Costa Rica.

On top of the wide array of adventure (and relaxing) activities available, this country could not be easier to travel to. If you’re American, then you’re  in luck – I didn’t have to exchange a dime of my US currency!

Blogger Update: Plan To Change Your Plan

Plan To Change Your Plan

As a natural-born planner, the hardest thing for me to do is veer off course of a well thought out plan. But guess what? Life happens! Things are always going to come up that you didn’t plan for. A lot of unnecessary anxiety can be completely bypassed by going in the with right mindset. Plan to change your plans!

Working my way into the blogosphere has been uphill climb (I still have a LONG way to go), and the plan I have now is completely different from what I started with. When I jumped into this world head-first I never imagined, nor could have imagined, the roadblocks I would hit.

Stop Being Photo-Shy & Let Your Freak Flag Fly!

The first time I used a selfie stick was at Grand Canyon, Arizona.

The first time I used a selfie stick was at Grand Canyon, Arizona.

For some people taking recreational photos and selfies isn’t a difficult thing – just point and shoot, right? When I first embarked on my Instagram and blogging adventure it never occurred to me that I might feel awkward taking pictures.

When you start taking photos for a purpose, and not just for fun, you realize that sometimes you need to do some pretty weird things to get the best shot. Keep in mind that your picture is competing against millions of others for likes and comments, so it has to be great!

Real-Cheap Flights To Europe

Adventure Awaits - Cheap Flights

If you’ve ever read my About page then you know I’ve had the travel bug since my first trip to Europe when I was teen. I’d traveled around North America, Mexico, and the Caribbean, but I hadn’t made it back to Europe in years – but why?

Flights were so damn expensive (notice how I said were)! That’s why! In the months before deciding to create GlamTrekker, I started seeing Norwegian Air all over the web, promising discounted flights to Europe. “It has to be fake,” I thought to myself. “How could this be possible?” Being the obsessive researcher I am, I decided to dive into the depths of Google to find out more.

Yo — It’s real! Discount flights to Europe are popping up all over the place. We now have Norwegian Air, Aeroflot, XL Airways (Air France’s discount airline), and Wow Air. Now, don’t start picturing yourself relaxing in a full-recline seat sipping champagne on your way to Spain. Nobody is going to be rolling out the red carpet for you with these flights my love.
