3 Unique Coffee Shops in the Seattle Area

Sippin in Seattle's latte land- the coffee capital of the world  awaits you! The holidays are here again, and it's the perfect time to try out a new coffee shop. Cozying up in one of these spots with my favorite brewed beverage, somehow makes the rainy season more bearable.

Whistler B.C: Why You Should Visit in the Fall


whistler, travel, fall, travelblogger,

Visit a winter ski resort in the fall, say what? Ah yes, Whistler  is known as a renowned winter destination and is home to one of the top ski resorts in the world.  Most travelers like to make a visit here when mounds of puffy white stuff are blanketing the village. I recently made a visit in October and it was simply amazing!

Bellevue Fashion Week 2016: Fall's Top Trends


September is usually a whirlwind month in the world of fashion.  Anywhere that is a major fashion hub has a fashion week to showcase all the latest trends for the upcoming season. I am a little late getting this post up, but hopefully you will enjoy it anyway!

Not to worry though, right here in the Seattle area is one of the premier fashion events in the country.  Bellevue Fashion Week is sponsored and presented by the Bellevue Collection.  It is interesting to see how the trends differ from year to year. Check out last year's trend show with Rachel Zoe here.

The collection includes Bellevue Square, Lincoln Square, and Bellevue Place: The Northwest's finest dining, luxury hotels, nightlife, and shopping are all found in this lovely hub east of Seattle.

How I Stayed in Paris 5 Nights for Free


I'm sure you've heard the famous quote by Audrey Hepburn " Paris is always a good idea." It's an expensive  place to travel to, so making it happen for some requires a lot of budgeting and saving. Since I am fashion and travel obsessed, I plan to visit France in the near future!

Today's article is a guest post is about how you can use hotel points to score a free stay.  I am especially happy to share the blog of a very dear friend of mine. He is actually like my brother.  I have known him and his siblings since I was 10 years old. I grew up as an only child in Vancouver BC.  Let's just say Carey and his two brothers made sure I did not miss out on the "sibling experience", ha!



This past January Carey retired, and he and his wife Susan are traveling the world indefinitely.  I am just a bit jello! Anyway if you get a chance , check out his blog Our Nomadic Experience. Here you will find fabulous tips on how to travel abroad on a budget. Carey definitely has it down to a science! 


How I Got Five Free Nights in Paris

How would you like to stay five nights in Paris at four and five star hotels for free like I did? It was quite easy, I used free hotel reward nights and points I got for signing up for a couple of hotel sponsored credit cards. I have made collecting lots of airline and hotel points a hobby and in one year collected 1.3 million points. Look at my previous post http://ournomadicexperience.com/over-million-hotel-airline-points-year/ on how I did this.

Good Morning Friends,

It's Travel Tuesday again! Today I am sharing one of my favorite all time spots to visit, the city by the Bay- San Fransisco. It is a great place for a day trip or an extended vacation. I was there for just a few hours this time, so this post will cover the 5 places I visited in 5 hours.  These are the most popular attractions. I know these are not new to most people. Some day I hope to take time to find some of the hidden treasure of the city.
