24 hours in Amsterdam

I’m going to be honest, on my first trip to Amsterdam I wasn’t that excited. Everyone else in our tour group was excited for special cakes and sex shops and I was kind of feeling meh about it. But once I got there and got to explore and experience the city, I loved it! I’ve

24 hours in San Juan

After a year and a half after Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico is finding its footing again and focused on rebuilding and welcoming tourists back to the island.

The architecture, the art, the food, the wine, the culture, the people… I could go on about what makes this Italian city such a fantastic travel destination, but it’s honestly better if you just go explore it yourself and enjoy some of the best

Barcelona, or “Barthelona” if you want to sound like a local (but please don’t unless you actually speak Catalan), is a wonderful, welcoming city that Rick and I simply cannot wait to get back to.
