Reykjavik is home to some really great restaurants. The following are a few places I stopped in for a bite to eat. There were so many more options to eat at, but these are a few I really enjoyed and recommend.

Great breakfast and one of the oldest cafes in Reykavik...

This past summer my boyfriend, 1 year-old daughter, and I travelled to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos for our best friend's destination wedding. The wedding took place on Beaches Resort, with a small number of guests. With a year notice we were able to save appropria...

The Coco Bistro

Upscale dining in an outdoor setting with a canopy of palm trees. Delicious food, but a tad pricey.

In May my family and  I took a cruise to Alaska. The ship left out of Vancouver and ended in Seward. Alaska is by far one of the most beautiful places I have been to. The rich beauty offered by nature is unquestionably astounding in every way. It was every bit as breat...

On our NCL cruise through Alaska last May I stayed at Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood, AK for two nights prior to flying out of Anchorage. Not only did this hotel get amazing reviews, but it was also a halfway point between Seward and Anchorage. My plan was  to grab a taxi t...

For Christmas this year I was given the Malouf Z-gel Memory Foam Travel Pillow. Generally I have only traveled with a neck pillow in the past which has proven to be a solid choice during long flights. There is nothing worse than a stiff neck on a six hour flight.

One of the most interesting things I did in Costa Rica was the Villa Vanilla plantation tour. The plantation was located about 30 min by taxi from the villa away from the coastline. When the taxi pulled into the plantation the driver pointed toward the entrance to the...

Pressed between Nicaragua and Panama is the beautiful country of Costa Rica and where my first trip to Latin America took me. I stayed in a villa located on the pacific coast in the town of Manuel Antonio. It is roughly a 3 hr drive by taxi from the San Jose Internatio...

Over the past few years I have been on four cruises to the Caribbean. I have always enjoyed the effortless planning that goes into cruising. It is a great way for a large group of people to vacation together without all the stress. You can pretty much guarantee that at...

If you're looking for some fun in Cozumel away from the beach, check out Wild Tours Xrails. Aquatic activities are my absolute favorite thing to do in a destination with such blue waters and perfect weather, but every now and then the beating hot sun becomes a little t...

The very first place I visited on the Big Island was the Pololu Valley. It is located on the northern part of the island in Makapala, HI. From the hotel there were two different routes to get there. The first option, the most direct route, would have taken roughly 50 m...

Kealakekua Bay is located on the west coast of the Big Island, and is just south of Kailua-Kona, roughly 12 miles. It is known to be one of the best snorkeling spots on the Island. On the opposite side of the bay stands the Captain Cook monument. The history behind the...

My second stop on the Big Island was Mauna Kea. It is one of the five volcanoes that form the big island, and is Hawaii's largest. I wanted to pick the perfect day to make the trip. Weather is an important factor for the view at the top. The forecast for the week was g...

Long before I landed in Hawaii I decided that a coffee tour was a must do. In the middle of my trip I spent the day in Kona. Hula Daddy Coffee was highly recommend on trip advisor and only a few miles away from Basik where I chose to have breakfast. (As a side note Bas...

I was on my way to the Waiapola Valley Lookout when I saw a sign. It read Laupahoehoe Harbor. I didn't have a specific plan for the day, and the Waiapola Valley wasn't going anywhere. I decided to take a detour and check out the harbor.

After a few twists and turns and...
