• The Best Deal At The Port Of Nassau, Bahamas

    I did a lot of research on things we could do with our port day in Nassau and it was quite tough when almost all of the options cost a pretty penny. You may remember that we sort-of last minute booked our NYE cruise for a great price and we didn’t want to turn this into an expensive trip in the slightest. Of course Carnival offered some great excursions, and we would have loved to swim with the dolphins in Atlantis, but it just wasn’t something we could see spending $200+ to do with 8 hours in port. My search continued. I found a few places that offered excursions for…

  • From Here To There: Isla Mujeres

    Some time ago I started this trend where I start all travel recaps series with just that, a recap of my trip. I throw in the little details about what we did, the things that might not get a post of their own, and then I add some photos that aren’t quite perfect for deeper overviews. I have recently noticed the abundance of travel bloggers that simply post photo diaries from their vacations, and I LOVE them. I am going to start doing a mix of the two. My From Here To There posts will now be a slight overview of our trip, and also a long photo diary. Cherishing…

    Why You Should Visit A Couples Resort

    Last year we went on a vacation to Jamaica, which I briefly talked about twice so far. I keep meaning to come back and share more about this amazing trip, but time gets the best of me. I had such a hard time deciding on a resort, there are endless options, and there were so many things on my wish-list. All-inclusive, mini-bar, excursions, several pools, oh my I just didn’t know how to narrow it down. After extensive research, we decided to go to a Couples Resort in Ocho Rios, called Tower Isle. This decision could not have been more perfect, and while I could go on and on about…

  • From Here to There {Jamaica pt. 2}

    I am excited to finally be sharing the rest of our trip to Jamaica! I can’t believe it was already 2 months ago. I miss that amazing water, awesome drinks and quality time with Dave like anything. At least I get to relive it all over again as I share our fun times with all of you! Our third day was the first day with actual plans. We had so many options everyday for games, activities, drinks, meals, etc and we had to start planning some of them if we wanted to do everything we had in mind. We also had to keep in mind which things were happening on…

  • From Here to There {Jamaica}

    It has been two whole weeks since I was sitting on the beach with a coconut in my hand. We had such an amazing time, and I can’t wait to give you a day by day recap, tell you all about the reasons we picked all-inclusive, and explain why I think you should go to Jamaica! But, for now, I am going to start with some recapping. I am going to mostly let the pictures do the talking, so be prepared for sun, sand, and wishes of being on a beach as fall rolls in full speed ahead. We kicked off our vacation with manis and pedis by the airport…

  • Why We Decided To Use A Travel Agent

    I am a planner. I plan pretty much every aspect of my life, and while it drives everyone around me crazy sometimes, I just can’t help it. So when it was brought up to possibly use a travel agent for a trip to Jamaica, I didn’t really know how to feel. Dave and I went to a travel agency jut to see what prices we could get for a trip I had already inquired about through Expedia and Orbitz. Come to find out it was about the same price. So here are the five reasons I chose to let a travel agent do all of the work. one She knew…
