Vegas Baby!

 

In my excitement for my upcoming trip to Portland, Oregon, my mini vacation to Las Vegas snuck up on me! The concierge desk has been busy with families coming in for weddings as well as the usual business travelers attending onsite conferences. It has in fact been so busy that time has completely slipped my mind! With less than a week before the trip an idea suddenly popped into my head…okay maybe it was incubating there for a while but…I have decided to film my first ever travel video for all of you. Don’t expect magnificent editing skills but I will do my best to present to you the best of Vegas. We all know Vegas doesn’t have to try hard.

New Adventures – An Update

What a great week!

I’ve recently had a burst of motivation to get this blog to be more active and well known. One of my decisions being to collaborate with some of my other friends looking for opportunity. I want you to welcome two good friends of mine to the team who will be assisting me from now on!

Karyn Vo is my new Web Developer and will be handling the creative design of not only my website but also future applications or any other ideas she might have to expand web traffic. She is currently studying Computer Science at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Karyn has been a good friend of mine since the beginning of our education at a local pre-school in Huntington Beach.

Ian McGregor will be a Guest Blogger for Suitable Travel Today and is the owner and creator of Cela’s Trek. CELA’S which stands for Culture, Ecology, Language, Atmosphere, and Sustainability focuses on Ian’s travels and introduces his readers to the ecological side of traveling. He is studying Conservation and Resource Studies at the University of California in Berkeley and recently returned from studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark. Ian and I are friends from junior high and is new to the travel writing world but has as much desire to make it a career as I do.

With both Karyn and Ian on my side, I have no doubt that we can conquer this growing industry and have fun while doing so.

I also have a few other personal updates…

Over a course of time I have come to realize that Hospitality Management was not the right fit for me. I commend those who have the endurance to spend 6-7 days out of their week making guest stays memorable, special thanks to those I work with. During the past three years I have learned from the magnificent property I work for and re-discovered my love for journalism in the form of travel writing. I am now pursuing a Journalism major to strengthen my writing skills.

The hotel property I work for has been nothing but generous, providing me opportunity after opportunity to learn from our various department managers. In the very near future I will be shadowing them so that I can understand how a hotel works cohesively as a whole. I will still be at the concierge desk but will be dividing my time for research purposes.

I also have a lineup of excursions planned out over the next couple of months so there will be plenty to look forward to!

Thank you as always for your continued support…until next time, safe and happy travels!
