On this episode of “when travel plans go wrong”: On our most recent trip to France, we ended up in a really stupid pickle. Here’s how we got out of it!
The one big thing that kept us from traveling earlier in our relationship (aside from worry over leaving our oil-and-water cats) was money. Once my parents offered to catsit their grumpy grandkittens, Luke and I started hammering out exactly how to get our wanderlusty butts on the road. Now, I rarely shop for regular-price clothes, shoes, or electronics, so […]
Let’s just get this out there early on: one week isn’t long enough to feel like you’ve experienced everything Iceland has to offer. But from horseback riding, to adventures on multiple coasts, this is how we spent our amazing week in this unique city!

Puerto Rico makes for an amazing, affordable vacation where you can find adventure of all sorts and an amazingly rich culture. See how magical our week was!
