There is a Vacation for Everyone

Hi, we are Cristina and David… We are a Canadian couple and we have been married for over ten years. Like the title of this page implies, we all have different likes and dislikes when it comes to travel. Over the years we have blended our two styles of travelling into one. What has developed is our own unique travel style that is built on our love of exotic food, exotic locations, warm weather, sun, white sand beaches and nice hotel rooms while occasionally being able to cook for ourselves.

Cristina comes from a Portuguese/Guyanese background so food and cooking is a very big part of her experience. Generally speaking, when it comes to travelling, the hotter it is, the happier she is (that goes for food as well as climate).

I (David) used to travel with some pretty fancy-pants people (okay, I travelled in support of four different Canadian Prime Ministers) and have seen more than my fare share of Presidential Suites. Although I didn’t get to stay in any, I got to stay on the same floor – that’s where I became bonifide “Hotel Snob”.

So, when you put these two together, you get a pretty neat combination of styles. We like food and we like to stay in nice, comfortable places. Many of our friends and family seem to think that this makes us snobs so what better name for our blog?

A few of our travel likes:

  • White sand beaches (with plenty of wave action)
  • Sunny and warm weather
  • Comfortable king-size beds
  • En-suite laundry
  • Full kitchens in our rooms
  • Window seats with plenty of leg room
  • Spicy food
  • Direct flights
  • Quiet, peaceful places

A few of our travel dislikes:

  • Charter airlines
  • Snow and cold weather
  • Inconsiderate people
  • Separate beds
  • Bland food
  • Loud drunk people
  • All-you-can-eat buffets

When it comes to vacationing, our preferences are quite diverse. Living in Canada, we do prefer to visit warm places. The Caribbean is always a great place to start with our current favourite being Turks and Caicos.  We have traveled extensively all over the world for both business and pleasure so we have seen a lot.

We hope that you enjoy reading some of our stories!
