#TBT Travel Photos: Grand Cayman Island

It feels like our Carnival Caribbean Cruise was forever ago! We went December 2013 and it was our first international vacation together. Our first stop was Grand Cayman Island and it was quite the adventure. We walked forever to pick up our rental car so we could save money instead of renting in the port…

The Baths at Virgin Gorda

During our St. Thomas vacation, we planned a day trip to The Baths on Virgin Gorda – one of the British Virgin Islands. The weather wasn’t really ideal during our trip, and it also didn’t help that I went a little ham the night before and was feeling anything but normal that day. But in…

Frenchtown Brewing Company Review

I love beer! (Seriously, how could you not?!) While I do love beer, I’m definitely not a connoisseur but I like to think I know a thing or two. One thing I do know for sure, I love trying new beers and going to breweries. While we were on vacation on St. Thomas, we had…

I Buy Memories, Not Material Items

Obviously everyone would like to travel and see the world, but I make it my mission to travel any chance I get. Some people are into having a family, spending time with their pets, discovering new recipes to cook, buying the newest and coolest electronics, collecting stamps. Ok, I have yet to meet someone who…

#TBT Travel Photo: St. John USVI

We are about to head out on another vacation! It feels like an eternity since we last had a vacation; when in reality it’s been two and half months. I’m just a person who needs a mental break; and often! We are about to head back to the US Virgin Islands to visit Ben’s family…

Travel Blogs – Booking Hotels

There are so many travel blogs out there it’s a bit overwhelming when you start researching them! Since we are always looking for great new adventures, I figured I’d start looking up other’s blogs about travel to see if any of their posts sparked interest. But I only realized one thing… the majority of these…

Best DSLR Camera for a Beginner Photographer

I took a photography class back in high school and remember loving it. I also just love taking photos and looking to Pinterest for inspiration. And now that we travel a lot and see many beautiful places, I want to start taking more professional looking photos for our albums and frames at home. I’m even…

Another Year as a $9 Fare Club Member

It happened yet again… I forgot to cancel my Spirit $9 Fare Club Membership. Damnit!! I even put a reminder alert in my calendar, but we are planning a trip to see Ben’s family in St. Thomas and I was trying to firm up those plans and determine baggage needs that I ended up forgetting…

Reggae Rise Up – St. Petersburg

We just returned from another mini vacation, but this was a road trip across the state to a music festival called Reggae Rise Up. It was a two-day festival at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg which is a really pretty area. The awesome line-up included Iration, Slightly Stoopid, Through the Roots, Dirty Heads, and Steel…

Vacation Day 3: Niagara Falls to Home

We always plan to get up at a certain time and get going and plan our day out. Well, we never actually get up and going when we plan to. We were about an hour behind our schedule and today had lots to do packed into it. We started with the free hotel breakfast overlooking…

Vacation Day 2: Toronto back to Niagara

Of course we woke up late, after a super late night… We checked out of our AirBnB after taking more pics from the amazing balcony. We then headed for breakfast at Cafe Crepe at 246 Queen Street West. It was a quaint little spot with great service and tasty food. I had the Florentine with…
