Back in July, I wrote a post about the Red Light District in Amsterdam where I shared some interesting facts about the De Wallen (as it is known to locals) district. One topic I did not discuss in the post was the Red Light District’s association with prostitution.

I can’t lie – the Red Light District and prostitution go hand-in-hand, but the Amsterdam version is not the same as most North Americans are familiar with. Therefore, I thought the idea of prostitution in Amsterdam deserved its own post, because it’s a topic often considered taboo.

Grenada

I have talked about my love for the island of Grenada a few times on the blog now. This is paradise on earth.

My post Great Eats in Grenada has been one of my most popular posts, with Things to Do in Grenada catching up quickly. Therefore, I thought it was time to share my thoughts on where to stay on this magnificent island.

I admit I almost always stay with my in-laws, but if they ever needed a break from me, you’d be able to find me at one of these exceptional island resorts. I’ve been to each one, so take my advice…
