Abundant Travel Tips: Top 10 First Trip Overseas & Austin Farmers Markets

San Juans

Happy Tuesday Travels; I hope this missive finds you safe and healthy!  This morning, I’m sitting in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island; it’s 65 degrees and sunny, and it feels amazing to be out of the 105 degree heat.  The San Juans were not on my  bucket list, but the island hopping has been an amazing the past couple days .  I’m excited to kayak, whale watch and eat my weight in crab!

To be honest, I was a little nervous to fly, but I found the airports and planes extremely clean, and everyone was respectful of social distancing and mask wearing.  

This week I’m sharing my video on my top 10 places to travel for your first trip overseas as well as my latest blog about the Austin Farmer’s Markets.  Also, there seems to be some exciting news from Barbados….

Since 2020 has turned into #staycations, off grid travel, hiking and road trips, I thought I’d share my updated list of Hiking Gear favorites on my Amazon Shop Page.

Austin Farmer's Markets

Have you been cooking more during the pandemic?  I’ve noticed that I’m not only cooking more, I’ve also been super creative with my cooking.  I find myself visiting different grocery stores as well as I’m now frequenting the the Austin Farmer’s Markets every weekend for delicious local goodies.  Check out this new post for everything you need to know about the Austin Farmer’s Markets. 


I was in Barbados a couple years ago, and I loved snorkeling and sailing the beautiful Caribbean island.  Although Americans are severely restricted for travel destinations right now, it looks like Barbados not only will allow us, but will let us stay for 12 months on a remote work visa?  Forget working from your couch at home, why not live in Barbados for a year lounging on the beach as you Zoom with your colleagues.  Check out the details here.
