Skuggi Hotel in Reykjavik review

Skuggi Hotel in Reykjavik

When Rick and I were in Iceland, we spent a night at the beginning of our trip and end of our trip  in Reykjavik – and stayed at the same hotel for both nights, the Skuggi Hotel by Keahotels. This three-star, modern hotel was a great option for our stay as it was centrally located,


Review: Norwegian Air

airplane wing

Last year, Rick and I had saved up credit card points to make our flights to Europe super cheap, and we got the most of those points by booking flights with Norwegian Air.

I love wine and am always on the hunt for a new favorite wine bar in Denver even though we already have several fantastic ones.  When my parents were in town, we went down just south of the city to check out the wines at Carboy Winery. I’ve had their wines in restaurants that are

Sandals Ochi review

Two years ago, Rick and I went to Jamaica for the ultimate relaxing getaway – and it worked for timing to celebrate our engagement and get some amazing engagement photos taken on the island! We decided on that trip that we knew we’d be coming back to a Sandals for our honeymoon and after looking
