Traveling in Style: Isle of Skye, Scotland

Traveling in Style _isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye is one of the most remarkable places to visit in Scotland, because of it’s stunning beauty and history. Towering peaks, vibrant emerald moors, and crystal clear fairy pools define the landscape of this ancient island. It is no wonder that this fall we have been completely inspired to add the Isle of Skye to our top destinations, style, and even our breakfast menu…

Visiting the Isle of Skye (from the collage above):
- This viral video of cyclist Danny MacAskill riding the stunning Cullin Ridge was just released, and makes you want to buy a ticket immediately.

- Watch the majestic Mealt Waterfall cascade down Kilt Rock (photo by Fabien Bravin).

- Quidam Cress perfectly captures the town of Portree on the island.

- Get a closer look at the ruins of Cill Chriosd (aka Christ’s Church) on Meanderings About

- Ian Cowe photographs the Neist Point Lighthouse and cliff edges of the island.

- Visit Scotland is packed with details and must-see destinations on the island, like Dunvegan Castle.

- The Isle of Skye makes the most perfect destination for a wedding (photo by Dylan Kitchener), or a Secret Elopement spotted on Green Wedding Shoes.

- On your visit, don’t forget to keep your eye out for red deer, whales, and these seals photographed by Paolo Verseci.

The Sweetest Sweet Tea Ice Pop Recipe

Sweet Tea Popsicle Recipe
I may be from Los Angeles, but I’ve got Southern love, as y’all know. You can’t get a decent sweet tea out here, so you have to make it yourself.

You can use our sweet tea recipe for boring-old drinking, but seeing as we are experiencing a crazy fall heat wave in LA, I say make some pops and cool off. Winter will be here soon enough.

My Verdict on All Inclusive

Club Med Cancun Room Views

I just got back from a lovely 4 day retreat to Cancun (poor me!). I love the Yucatan peninsula, beyond the beaches of Cancun to Chichén Itzá, Coba, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel… I’ve done it all and would go back a thousand times more. If you visit our Prudent Travel section, I think we’ve been to Mexico about 8 times the past two years?

Point being, I never say no to a trip to Mexico. But this particular trip I was invited by Club Med to check out their new Aguamarina family suites and soak up the all-inclusive experience at Club Med Cancún Yucatán.

Let me tell you all about it after the jump… (more…)
