Happy Holidays LLYOVers! We hope this holiday season will bring you a little staycation or vacation! We have rounded up some of our favorite must-haves for your holiday getaways. Snow or Sun, below you will find some our essential cargo for travel:
The city of Palma is a city often overlooked by tourists as they fly through it desperate to get to their final destination and onto the beach. This oversight is a shame, as the city itself has a fantastic rich culture and atmosphere that is present year round. City breaks are a wonderful way to get to the root of a country, and Palma is no different. Book your flights to Majorca and discover the heartbeat of Majorca in its capital.
The BIG question….. When do I deserve a break? I still have so much to do…. but I’m exhausted…. But I haven’t met my deadlines….. but im not really getting any work done…. But I don’t want to use my sick days or vacation days…. But I don’t know if I’ll EVER use my sick days or vacation days.
It’s easy to see why city breaks are so popular with couples, families and groups of friends; no matter what the time of year, a city can provide so much for its visitors that an ordinary beach break can’t. From the oodles of culture to the masses of sights to tick off your itinerary list, a city break can be exactly what you want it to be.
I regularly visit my home town to enjoy it’s many splendors and remind myself of how relaxing life can be. Sipping home-made sweet tea as I sit on the dock with my feet dangling in the salty water, I wonder if it’s possible for an outsider to enjoy this way of life. As the afternoon thunderstorms roll in over the inter-coastal waterways I ponder if the humidity and mosquitoes are just a barrier to keep the tourists from deciding to move in.
When this word crosses your informative lips, others respond with excitement, or curiosity. What the true response entails: stress, sweat and struggle. I, recently, picked up my entire life–born, raised and rooted in Nebraska for the last amazing 24 years—and re-settled it in Southern California. The façade of moving some where “exotic” in my mind, quickly faded as the planning process began to take place.
Thanks to everyone that came out to support LLYOV! We raised a lot of money for Odanadi and had a blast getting to meet our readership and fellow LLYOVers. We hope to do something like this again soon. Let us know if you’d like to be involved.

I have just come home from a trip that can best be described as “magical”. Upon planning my trip to the Côte d’Azur I assumed that most of my days would be filled with lounging on pebble beaches or hopefully a new friend’s yacht. When I arrived in Cannes I instantly felt that horrible instinctive feeling; “I’ve GOT to get OUT of here!”. This feeling often rumbles at the sight of too many tourists, over crowded beaches, and worst of all, over priced and mediocre food.
