Traveler Beware

With spring break coming up---a lot of people will be booking flights/hotels/rental cars/ etc ONLINE. The TODAY show hosted a short segment on how some hotels, resorts, & restaurants post fake reviews scamming travelers into believing they're this wonderful place---when they're actually a dump or have critters or foul smelling rooms! One guy even said that if it takes a few bogus reviews to get more people in your door, he didn't see what was wrong. So please be careful, & make sure you do your research! Not to say that you're not smart enough to know that some sites don't always offer honest reviews ;)

Other than that, enjoy your weekend! And the fab blog hops around the blogisphere!

It's FRIDAY!!!! And what better way to enjoy the weekend then to hit up your FAVORITE local pizza joint! Joy & myself like Reginelli's Pizzeria. The pizza shop is local favorite down in New Orleans, and if you could taste it you would see why!

Doesn't this look delicious!

Now the two top cities who claim to have the best pizza are Chicago & New York. So what do you think? New York's thin crust? Or Chicago's deep dish? Or do you think it's you local favorite spot that has the best pizza?!! We might have to take a trip just to see for ourselves!

Happy Friday! Happy Blogging! Thank God for Pizza

Dream Destination

Jet-Setters we've got a new Dream Destination for you this week that is sure to heat you up and cool you down. We are talking about the Blue Lagoon in Icleand.

Dubbed as "The Land of Fire and Ice", Blue Lagoon combines both nature and science to create a spa experience unlike any other.

Doesn't lounging in a steam bath and soaking in the sheer beauty that the surrounding nature has to offer sound simply divine!

The most fascinating part is that even in the winter time the Blue Lagoon is still open! How amazing would that be to feel the warm of the water while watching the snow all around you.

To learn more about the Blue Lagoon Spa and book reservations, check out:

So, Jet-Setters what do you think of of this week's Dream Destination? Will you be packing your bags to Iceland anytime soon?

Spring?! Not yet...think warm thoughts!

Well it's not spring yet---but it sure doesn't hurt to wish/pretend it was! Just think...warm temperatures at about 80 degrees, cool blue waters, nice white sandy beaches, and a cool Margartita in hand are all we need to take the winter blues away! So why not start planning your spring vacation now! With spring break coming in the next month or so--hotel rooms will be going fast, flights will be EXPENSIVE, and roads will be jammed pack headed south to the beaches.

Don't have any plans yet but want something affordable & fun without the crowds?

-Cruises are the perfect getaway! All meals/drinks are included and you get to check out more than one place! has deals great deals for cruises! Never used before? It's ok, I book flights/hotel rooms through orbitz, and I know they have great deals!

So what warm & sunny place do you have in mind? Are you & your friends planning a spring break trip?
