The super hip W Barcelona is not only an architectural wonder, but also a trend setter in hotel amenities and design. My husband and I stayed a week at the W Barcelona for our 5th Wedding Anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the hotel was. Pictures don’t do it justice, so I’ve included their promo video below! The exterior structure looks like a giant sail, cruising on the Mediterranean. It reminded me a bit of the world famous Burj Al Arab, only way more affordable! Upon entering the lobby your senses will be filled with sights, sounds and textures, fully stimulating your senses. True to W form, everything is bright vibrant colors with lots of lighting effects for the ultimate cool. The walls near the elevator are a cool 3D pinned wall paper that is just asking to be touched (seen sparkling in the video). The front desk staff are very friendly and get you checked in very quickly. (read more)

I was going to wait to release this article, but with recent events I think the cruise industry needs a little pick me up. Cruising is much safer than flying or driving and much more pleasurable! While there is a lot to be said about traveling to a country, renting a car, staying a week or two and getting to see the places off the beaten path as well as the top tourist destinations, sometimes you just don't have the time! When you don’t have weeks to spend in other countries and want to get the most out of your vacation, cruises are for you! The benefits of cruises are that you get a small sample of the port destinations without the hassle of having to worry about transportation, hotel, food – which are the most expensive part of traveling. The money and time you save far exceed some of the disadvantages of cruising such as, small cabins, sea sickness, crowds, lines and dated ships. MSC Cruises does the best out of any cruise line to minimize these inconveniences and make the experi (read more)
