About bb and leopardo laptop / update w. Leopardo BOYS!

When I first started to trave and write and blog about my travels I picked the name “baltobabe”. I got it via signing up for “PayPal”for all things when they suggested a name for me and I thought it was cute and fit since I am from “Baltimore” and that abreviation is often called “Balto” and many moons ago I was considered a BABE! So that’s how “baltobabe” got her name…Now on to how Leopardo came about!

It wasn’t long after the travel bug bit that I started writing on various internet sites and “Spreading the LOVE”! I got myself a small laptop and being a Lover of all things LEOPARD…I found a place that sold “skins” to cover it with! And thus was born Leopardo Laptop! I have since retired 2 larger Leopardos…and now travel with “Lil Leopardo” who still goes by Leopardo Laptop! He is a handsome 8.9 inch Acer Netbook who loves to travel in his leopard case with matching accessories…He does get jelous about the “Leopardo Luggage” sometimes but most times they play nice!

Its no SECRET (pun intended!) that I am a BIG FAN of all things AMResorts and just love their Brands! Over the years I have traveled to almost all of them! Dreams, Secrets, Zoetry and NOW. Leopardo and I love to…”Spread the LOVE, Share the DREAMS, Reveal the SECRETS, Life ARTfully like Zoetry and Be in our moment of NOW”! LOL I even designed a card with that imprinted on it…Leopard Themed of course!

Leopardo and I LOVE to meet people while we are away…both guest and staff alike! We have made and kept so many special friends and extended family traveling! While we travel we like to Share and Spread the LOVE by doing “LIVE FROM” reports with pictures and videos so folks that are thinking of coming can see…we always check back so if anyone has something they are concerned about perhaps we can get a picture or video to help out.

Since first writing this piece there have been the addition of “The Leopardo Boys! That would be LeoPODo the 4th Gen Ipod who is so great at TWEETING AND FB’ing on the FLY! And LeoPADo our newest addition to the Leopardo Family the Ipad2 who ROCKS our Leopardo World and has helped out on the last 2 trips! Leopardo Laptop has welcomed is Leopardo Brothers with open paws and they are all playing nicely!

We all played in the Dominican Republic in April when we did the
Divine Dominican Tour where we visited ALL of the AMazing AMResorts, Dreams Palm Beach, NOW Larimar, Secrets Royal Beach, Dreams Punta Cana, Zoetry Agua, Dreams LaRomana and Secrets Sanctuary Cap Cana! And then again in June when Jammin’ In Jamaica @ Secrets Wild Orchid and St. James!

In August Me and the Leopardo Boys and the Leopardo Luggage are on the road again to do Puerto Vallarta where SWEET DREAMS AWAIT! Visiting again Dreams Puerto Vallarta and Dreams Villamagna!

    Hey Baltobabe!!!
    Haven’t had the time in these past few months to hit any of our frequented forums………so busy at work!!! Can you believe that I have only traveled once this whole year!!!!! CRAZY 😦
    Hoping to go away in October, looking for a recommendation, thinking of hitting either Now Jade, Dreams Riviera Cancun or Dreams Tulum. Can’t decide, so many fabulous AM properties!!! I treasure your opinion, so any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
    Stay Fabulous and big hugs to you and Leopardo ;))

      Lorna!!! How Great to hear from you!!! Please drop me an email at
      So we can catch up and get you started on some SWEET DREAMS or Magic Moments of NOW!!! The 3 you mentioned are GREAT and for so many reasons too!

      Love Dreams Tulum, is the longest ride from the airport but once you are there…GIRL U R THERE! The ruins of Tulum a must do and very close as is Coba another ruin site that I visited Septemeber when I was there!

      Dreams Riviera Cancun is the newest of all of them…just a couple years old now and is really NICE too…and not too far from the airport! Great Beach area and pools too!

      NOW Jade…love it there also! Great Vibe and STAFF!…A lot to offer…so shoot me an email and lets start making plans…

      And by the way I am now a travel agent…I am an outside agent for Carol Pietz Travel she is GREAT! I am her AMResorts Specialist and an AMResorts Master Agent…I have now been to ALL of the AMResorts and know and love each of them…

      AND..even if you don’t book with me Lorna…you know I always love to help…Spreading the LOVE and Sharing the DREAM is what I have always been about!

      Look forward to hearing from you!
