Jamaica Vacation 2017 and Safety in Jamaica

My boyfriend and I recently took a trip to Jamaica (April 11-April 16) and for the most part it was absolutely wonderful, but there are some things that I have learned and want to share beyond my normal travel tips and reviews, but let us begin with the positive. We booked our airport to hotel […]

New Orleans, Louisiana

My boyfriend and I took a trip to NOLA in November 2016 for a long weekend. It was actually a lovely time to go, it was around the 70s most days, and not too humid. Perfect for walking around the French Quarter and perfect for a bayou airboat trip! Being completely upfront, I did not […]

Silica mud is available throughout the lagoon so you can give yourself a relaxing mud mask. Believe me, it […]

Iceland Adventure Day 3

This morning I went to get myself some hot tea and noticed sugar cubes wrapped in thin paper. I was so exhausted from traveling, jet lag, and getting up early that I forgot my anxiety and made a comment about how cute they were next to the hot water. A woman with an English accent […]
