A small town of about 2,000 people, Marfa is hard to describe. The town is a contradiction. It is an authentic West Texas town and an artist’s Mecca. It is a cowboy’s dream and an artist’s realm. It is where the desert meets the mountains and where hipster meets down-home Texas. It’s comfortable, homey, and eclectic; the kind of place that makes you want to stay a while.
Well, we went to Florida. When I told Vince that I wanted to go to Florida as one of our trips this year, he looked at me like I was insane. You may also be wondering why anyone would willingly travel to Florida and the answer is simply: Harry Potter and manatees. These are two things I love dearly and wanted to spend my birthday experiencing both! I had a lot of fun in a very short, whirlwind trip and now we don’t have to go to Florida again!
Hello friends! We are back from our glorious beach vacation and busy still reminiscing and, you know, planning our next big trip (Nicaragua, here we come!). Costa Rica was everything we could have wished for and more and we were so happy to get to relax in such a beautiful setting. I don’t think Central America gets the recognition it deserves. It’s so close, so lush and beautiful and filled with amazing people and adventures.
Hello everyone! We just got back from our trip to San Diego last week and we’ve been busy unpacking and organizing our apartment since then. Our trip was amazing and we are officially moving to the beach now. I made a terrible mistake and left my camera at home, so all these pictures are from my Iphone. I apologize in advance.
Have you used AirBNB yet? If not, I suggest you get on it. Working at a hotel, I sort of scoffed at the idea of it at first. But after looking at the amazing places being offered for so much less than you would pay for a hotel or resort it’s pretty much a no brainer. Vince and I first used it in Puerto Rico, when we stayed at the Dreamcatcher. It was sincerely an amazing experience. The ambiance, decor, and location were all completely enveloping and we got so much more out of our experience than we would have if we had stayed at a resort. I highly, highly recommend it to anyone who is even thinking even a little bit about spending some time in San Juan. Since then, I have basically only wanted to use AirBNB for everything and often spend my downtime picking locations I want to travel to and then seeing what sort of places we can book.
