    we tend to average 2 trips a year. one is usually to visit family in haiti.

    when i was single and childless (a state that lasted through my early 40s) i would travel whenever i was able, but now that i have a kid i find it's easiest to travel in february (my birthday + spring break for kids) and then some time between july and september. sometimes it works out to be easter break and thanksgiving.

    i want to get my guys to new orleans or california and do a trip to a few places in europe. those are on my short list.
    holla when you are ready to plan your new orleans trip, that is where I am originally from.

    i placed it next to the salt container to show scale- it looked so miniature in the first photo.
    This is beautiful!

    GREAT report!!! and awesome photos! Very informative love the details. So I have considered Strawberry Hill for a long while. What are your thoughts of no a/c in August. I am an A/C girl and I know august is HOT and humid. Wondering if I can manage. Is it really that cool in the Blue Mtns?

    isn't it?

    it's iron wood, which means it's extra-extra hard wood. should last forever.

    i think you would be slightly warm during the day and would need to utilize the fan- but you would most likely not be in your room much during sunlight hours. it would most definitely be cool up there during the night.

    i really love strawberry hill. it's a really special place. even if you only stay there once and then move on to something less expensive in the area it's worth the experience.

    Thanks for the info on Strawberry Hill! New Orleans is a special city...so much history and culture. Didn't realize how "strange" we were until I moved away. Love being strange lol! Thanks again for a very insightful report and such a good review of Warren. He and his brother work hard to do a good job.

    i missed it!!!

    i am coming down with the flu and have a crazy week at work ahead of me (i work in advertising and we're about to launch a new campaign and i'm working 11 hour days), so i went to bed last night at 9pm. i'mma try to catch as much of it as possible via youtube videos. cannot wait to see beres!

    and re: my trip report- i totally thought i'd posted every single thing about my trip but realized i forgot to mention we stopped by the folly mansion in port antonio (no photos, boo)!

    and i also forgot to post the two cute birthday mementos i got from great huts hotel folks and the server at terra nova!


    birthday swans at great huts! the woman who made up my room also left me a really sweet birthday card!




    day after my birthday @ terra nova hotel (taken by ti boss)
