Keep It Classy, San Diego!

I spent my Thanksgiving holiday in San Diego. Although it was a very brief visit, I was excited to return to one of my favorite cities in the country — other than NYC, of course. Last time I was there was 15 years ago when I had a slight detour trip to Tijuana, Mexico — crazy place! The city is absolutely beautiful, as the weather is your typical spring temperatures, and the people are stunning! As it is one of the most athletic/fit cities in the world, I was eager to prove my athleticism by signing up for the Turkey Trot on Thanskgiving Day.

Penha Longa Resort in Portugal

Arrival/Check-In: My TAP Portugal flight arrived in Lisbon early in the morning, which brought up some questions regarding hotel check-in. Although Penha Longa Resort is located in Sintra and check-in is in the afternoon, I was hoping to get into my room early and enjoy a little shuteye before exploring the property. The receptionist who helped me check in could see how tired I was. She kindly suggested I enjoy the breakfast at the resort while staff rushed to get my room ready. By the time I was finished with my meal, my room was waiting for me.
