Breakfast from Brauð & Co.- the cinnamon rolls (kanilsnúðar) are a dream! We ate them walking around Hallgrimskirkja, its concrete exterior is inspired by Iceland’s basalt formations. The rain was coming down hard when we got to Þingvellir National Park but it was incredible to walk the rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic […]
After an early morning, shuffling through customs, our first stop was the Blue Lagoon. It may be expensive and touristy but since I’m a tourist, I thought this place was totally worth it! Nothing could’ve eased us into ‘vacation mode’ quite like sinking into warm, sapphire water with a cold drink in hand. I’d describe […]
I wanted to post about the resort we stayed at because it was so MASSIVE and fancy and fun- it truly felt like a vacation. But almost all of my photos are at the pool! Hahaa. This place had the largest pool bar, surrounded by the ocean; there was a waterslide made to look like […]
We ended up walking down the beach from our resort to the Nuevo Vallarta marina to watch soccer matches and eat a nice dinner at Maizul for Mike and Sam’s anniversary. I got the impression the resort put a lot of work into keeping the beach tidy on the resort side cuz when we went […]
Jason’s friends Sam and Mike invited us on vacation to Mexico’s Pacific coast. It was my first time meeting Sam and Mike and my first time in Mexico! From Vallarta, we took a guided hike through a hilly jungle and along a coastline- Boca de Tomatlan, to Playa Los Caballos (Horse Beach), to Las Animas. […]
Extremely thankful to have spent Memorial Day weekend at the beaches – kayaking thru mangroves covered in tiny crabs and spiders, sifting for shark teeth, and holding sea creatures. Jason’s friend Spinach showed us so many cool, fun things!
Stops on the way back home! Boyett’s! Hong Kong Willie’s Muffler Man with wasp balls! Haaaa! I loved Buc-ee’s, Jason did NOT.
The joy of feeding flamingos and having them brush against you in FLAMINGO LAND!
First stop, Gainesville! We made quick stops at Paynes Prairie both ways- checked out Bolens Bluff on the way down and the Alachua Sink on the way back. Both rad! all those dots in the water are alligators! jumbo snails gator in a wig! gator waterslide! Jason’s friends at Satch Squared. We got the waffles […]
I’ve been to Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden a few times now and every visit is special. This time, we stayed at the bungalow right on the property– which gives you unlimited access to the garden since it’s right in the backyard. Listened to Elvis at the chapel under a full moon, ate VERY WELL, I […]
