My Ireland Itinerary

While my last name is Donahue, I am not of Irish heritage. My husband is. However, I was very excited to visit Ireland which had been high on my bucket list for a long time! We took a whirlwind tour of the southern half of Ireland and had the most amazing adventure. And for those timid drivers out there, we drove on the opposite side of the road and survived! Actually, we did a lot of driving on this trip which might not be for everyone, but it was such an amazing way to see this gorgeous country!

Hawai'i: Finding the Aloha Spirit

I recently returned from Hawai’i and received a wonderful introduction to the culture of the Hawaiian people. The word Aloha has a much deeper meaning than most people realize. It does not mean Hello. The word is much more spiritual and embodies the compassion, love and kindness that the Hawaiian people feel towards each other, their islands and all beings which is a pretty amazing concept!

Review of Maison Souquet

During my recent Paris trip, I stayed at Maison Souquet. This Small Luxury Hotels of the World shot straight to the top of my favorite hotels list. Located right around the corner from the iconic Moulin Rouge, the décor plays heavily on the properties history as a brothel. Apparently for few years around 1905, the mansion functioned as brothel. The décor was designed by Jacques Garcia and relies heavily on sumptuous red velvet.
