Over the river and through the woods…

October 7, 2022 We stayed in our cabin last night on the Isle of Skye and woke up refreshed, ready to seize the day. Ok, that isn't necessarily true we woke up and were excited, but still exhausted. That drive yesterday did me in, but Lauren also was exhausted from her travel day plus the... Continue Reading →

Two Castles, neither on a hill

October 6, 2022 Today Lauren finally made it! Wooohoo!! However, it meant I had to leave the beautiful Airbnb at the farm at 630 am. It was such a lovely evening, I slept VERY well and was refreshed when I woke up. The rain had begun, it wasn't horrible, but enough that driving on the... Continue Reading →

Bom Bidi Bom Jesus

Our Porto hotel has by far been our favorite. It was very nice, excellent customer service and we LOVED the location. I mean, in reality it was Chris and his research into the hotels that allowed us to have such great stays. We had a patio off our room, robes, a great bathroom - it... Continue Reading →

When everything works out!

This morning we got up and enjoyed some breakfast - but not before being very much out of it because of a one hour time change between Portugal and Gibraltar. For some reason that really threw off our bodies clocks. Anyway, after breakfast I packed my stuff up and Chris and I took his suitcase... Continue Reading →

We first headed to the bookstore that opened at 9am. Google told us it would take about 10 minutes, so we went walking. Of course, its... Continue Reading →

On Sunday I decided I was going to Island hop over to Oahu and check out the historical Pearl Harbor. I was able to snag an Hawaiian Air 7am flight for $29!! I also was able to grab a Southwest flight back to Maui. My day started early, I had to take my rental car... Continue Reading →

Last day in Cinque Terre

Today is my last day here, and I just didn't know what to do. I laid in bed until about 9, then got up and people watched from my window until about 10. Then I got ready, bought a banana and a yogurt and headed out to another town. I caught the train to the... Continue Reading →

Let’s go for a hike

Well first I must fill you in last night. After the beach, I ran into Pip. Pip checked in with me, and is in another room. She invited me out for a drink with her and her roommates, so I decided to go. We went to the same place I went to lunch at. We... Continue Reading →
