For a drive down to Temecula for wine tasting with my dad, I wanted something fancy for the weekend. So I was super excited when DriveShop provided me with a 2016 Mazda6 Grand Touring—in cherry red—for the roadie. DriveShop provided me with this car in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
This whole trip came up as a last minute change of plans. For Father’s Day, I had planned to go wine tasting with my dad in Santa Barbara. Then, Santa Barbara caught on fire. So frantically, on the day of his arrival, I started looking into other options so as to salvage the wine weekend. After some quick searching, I came up with and decided on Temecula for our wine tasting weekend.
And I am so glad I did.

Barbequed meat and more on a Saturday afternoon. What more could a girl ask for? That’s right, Saturday was the West Coast BBQ Classic at the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Set with the ship and the Long Beach shoreline and the bay in the background this event was an afternoon of relaxation, good music, family fun, and of course good food. It was a foodie’s dream!
If you love BBQ, then you need to be in Long Beach on May 14 to experience delicious barbeque from across the country and to usher in the summer.
Whenever I travel, I try to experience a place like the locals do. Not to mention, I am a sucker for delicious food. So a foodie tour is often a great option for experiencing a city or country as a local and trying out those small spots that may be off the radar. So when I ventured to Turks and Caicos for some R&R, the first thing I researched was foodie tours, and I found the lovely Taste of TCI Food Tours Turks and Caicos.
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos is a pretty laid back, chill atmosphere. So when we were on the hunt for a few activities to do on the island, one of the highly recommended ones was beach horseback riding with Provo Ponies. So we embarked on a half-day ride with Provo Ponies leading the way.
Turks and Caicos is not an inexpensive island. If you want upscale and high-quality accommodations, you will have to pay prices on the higher end of the tourist spectrum. But there is one place that is definitely worth it: The West Bay Club Providenciales on Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos.
