Absinthe Las Vegas is a show not to miss!

A bright circus tent welcomes you into the world of Absinthe Las Vegas. As you walk through the entrance you are transported to Spiegelworld and it is a random, eclectic and fun world to be in.

The chairs are random and the decorations even more random.  You may be sitting in a chair or you may be sitting in a bathtub or barber chair. Your eyes will feast on funky paintings and gorgeous chandeliers while you wait for the extravaganza that is Absinthe to start.

You start to wonder what you are in for. The advertisements suggest this is the best show on the Strip…….can it possibly live up to the ads?

And then the show starts and you are transfixed, mesmerized and just in awe of what you are seeing in front of you.

This was our experience as we entered the Absinthe tent for the first time. We were excited to check out the performance after hearing amazing reviews from friends. …

Cure what ails you at the Alchemy Bar on Carnival Cruises

The Alchemy Bar is a step above your normal cruise ship bar. This bar is not about blenders, funky glasses or loud music. The Alchemy Bar on Carnival Cruises is all about producing an amazing cocktail in a relaxed setting. On the Carnival Freedom the Alchemy Bar is tucked away at the back of the ship on deck 5. You might run across this bar on your way to a comedy show or to your room. This is one bar I highly suggest seeking out at the beginning of your cruise.

You don’t want to find it the last night of your cruise and wish that you had more time to visit the bar. We ended up gravitating to the Alchemy Bar almost nightly on our cruise. The bartenders on the Carnival Freedom were amazing. Adri and Daniel are incredibly well trained and have a love for their jobs….

Ocean Grill Puerto Vallarta

Paradise awaits at the Ocean Grill Puerto Vallarta!

Oh my!!!! The best way to describe the Ocean Grill is paradise on a stick. It is just perfect! No question about it this is paradise!

We took a water taxi from Puerto Vallarta about 30-45 minutes to the Ocean Grill. The scenery along the way is magnificent.

You pull up to the Ocean Grill and do a quick odd hop into their boat and then up to the dock to get to the restaurant.

Oh and I should mention the only way to access the Ocean Grill is by boat so be prepared! It is so worth the boat ride


When you pull up to the Ocean Grill you are greeted by a gorgeous white sand beach and a view of the restaurant over looking the water.…

Vallarta Adventures Sunset Sail in Puerto Vallarta

During my amazing trip to Puerto Vallarta I had the chance to take a Vallarta Adventures Sunset Sail.

This sunset sail was quite the adventure!

One of the guys on the trip warned us that he tended to irritate the sea gods and have interesting boat rides when he travels. I didn’t really know what to say and just kind of laughed when he told us……

Well his premonition was right. Our sunset sail turned into quite the adventure….

We ended up enjoying a bit of a windy stormy sail. Even with the crazy weather we had a great time.


Our adventure began at the Vallarta Adventures office. We quickly signed a waiver and met our captain for the trip. They walked us over to the sailboat and we left our shoes with them….
