The Vinales Valley (so far, my favorite part of Cuba!) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, consisting of a series of interconnected, narrow valleys with scenery that is simply magnificent! It is here, in the red, fertile soil and deep green fields
About TravelingWrite’s Blog
If you enjoy traveling, reading about travel, and/or chatting with like-minded travelers, TravelingWrite’s Blog is the place for you! My name is Ingrid Theresa and I started a travel blog in 2012. My dedication to travel falls in line with my decision to stop putting off my desire to leave my 9-5 desk job behind and travel as much as possible. I’ve had the travel bug since the mid-late nineties. I remember wanting to visit every country on the map! Back then, I could only travel when I took my annual, one week vacation.
I became an independent travel planner/agent about five years ago. I’d spent years planning and booking travel for family, friends and friends of friends for free. I left a corporate sales position, whrere I was exceeding sales goals and winning incentive trip after incentive trip. That was fun, but I wanted more!
I wanted to travel the world, talk about it (mostly through my travel blog), plan and book memorable vacations, and exciting, stress-free group and solo trips. I also enjoy the sometimes tedious, sometimes fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants preparations, the busy airports, train stations and cruise ports, cocktails in transit, manuvering my way around new cities, the excitement of trying new foods, and meeting new people.

The ladies and I are night owls. We wake early, work long days into the evening, then begin to unwind pretty late at night. Well, not in Antigua! We arrived on a Saturday afternoon, and learned that we had until
We travel so well together. London/Paris/Rome, Miami, Las Vegas, and now Antigua. This was a much needed, BFF bonding vacation. A few months ago, we loosely “saved the date”, and surprisingly, to all three of us, we pulled it off.
The Peppermill Resort in Reno, Nevada really “wowed” us! This big, glitzy resort/casino is located a few minutes from the Reno/Tahoe international airport. And while we didn’t get non-stop flights out of Washington, DC, the flight from BWI to Salt
Its been a long haul. My ankle was broken about 6 1/2 long months ago! After the initial surgery, cast, boot, and physical therapy, I thought I was ready to resume roaming the globe. “Not so fast!”, said my brand
After a short break to recuperate from Panama and The Dominican Republic, we are ready to hit the road again! This time we’re headed to Reno and Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Our plans include the Lake, of course, along with spa
