My 2012 Spring Break Recommendations – They’re all in the US!

February 3rd, 2012 No Comments

The Huffington Post just published my slide show, “Awesome Spring Break Recommendations You Don’t Need A Passport For.”

These 4 Southern destinations feature luxurious resorts that are moderately priced and offer TONS of activities.  Golf, beach, biking, hiking, tennis, cooking, yoga, and plenty of R&R.

CLICK HERE to see the slideshow and my review of each. In each, you’ll find links to my videos and photos from my experience.

Here’s the best part:  you don’t need some crazy expensive airline ticket to get there!  Each of them is 2 hours or less outside of a major city (LA, Houston, Atlanta). You might not even need to get on a plane at all.

If you have any questions about any of the properties, please don’t hesitate to email me.  I’d love to help get you there, even if it’s just for a weekend getaway!

My favorite massage in the whole wide world

September 23rd, 2011 1 Comment

Meet Emin, my favorite masseuse in the world.  He works at the Hotel ZaZa spa in Houston. Yes, after all of my travels to wonderful hotels all over the world, my absolute favorite massage is in Houston, Texas.

This week I reveiwed the ZaSpa favorably for SpaWeek.com.  Bottom line:  it’s a small and luxurious spot with decent prices and a great pool you can enjoy too!

Both the Houston and Dallas locations are participating in Spa Week Oct 10-16. Their $50 treatments will be:

  • 50 Min Big Chill Swedish Massage
  • 50 Min Deep Cleansing Facial
  • 50 Min On the Rocks Pedicure

ZaSpa at Hotel ZaZa Dallas

(Full disclosure: Zaza has provided comped services for me in the past. I continue to visit Emin when I can now!)
